At the best of times, moving can be a stressful experience that involves many weeks of planning and coordination. Even more complicated is a move across the country such as the one undertaken by those moving from Vancouver to Toronto. One of the most important things when planning a complex cross country move is to engage with a reliable and trusted moving company.
How to find the right company for a west coast to southern Ontario move?
When looking for a long-distance mover, you’ll want to ensure the company has great reviews through websites like Homestars and Better Business Bureau. But most importantly, does the company have a track record of successfully completing cross Canada moves? There are many movers to choose from but not all have the experience needed to properly pack and transport items safely on long-haul trips.
How best can I prepare for my long haul move?
There are many ways to prepare for a cross Canada move from B.C. to Toronto. Here are 3 key tips to help things go a little smoother:
Make a List Yes, it’s the moving companies responsibility to ensure your goods are safely packed and transported to your new home. But ahead of the move, make a full inventory list of all the items that will be going with you which will make getting an accurate price estimate much easier.
Purge Moving is a great time to purge unnecessary items from your home. Not only will it make the packing process a bit easier but it could also cut down on the overall cost of your move.
Pack Items You’re Going To Need Right Away Together When packing for a long-haul move it’s important to consider the items you’re going to need on day one in your new home. Clearly marking boxes “day one items” with a marker will ensure movers can place these items in an easily accessible area and help make the first day in your new home just a little bit easier.
