You and any Etobicoke moving company have to work together. Of course, we will take care of the leg work. However, there are little things you could do that would make your move all much more pleasant. Here are some of the tips that moving service providers recommend for those who are looking to relocate.
Tip #1. Prepare months ahead
Time is an element that is often overlooked – or ignored. Instead of looking up a company days before moving preparation, consider preparing weeks or even months ahead. You might need to give the company some time to prepare especially if you’re going to hire them for crating and packing as well. You might get to save a lot on time and costs if you prepare at least 6 months in advance.
Tip #2. Countercheck through the BBB
Moving companies need to know what ratings customers are giving them. For that purpose, they have the BBB. Google “BBB Canada moving”.
BBB cannot rate companies without sufficient information about them or if assessment is ongoing. A+ is the highest score and F the lowest. Rating elements include business’s complaint, time in business, transparency in business practices and ability to honor commitments with BBB.
Tip #3. Separate what is going from what is not going
We understand that your belongings are valuable to you in more ways than one. But if you’d like to save space – and cut costs, you need to determine outright which ones you’re keeping. If you decided that you’re getting rid of some items, they can be given to charity, while others can be sold in a moving garage sale.
You can save time, limit expense and make your move more manageable by just being honest to yourself that it is impossible to move your household in its entirety.
Tip #4. Set the date
In Canada, the busiest times for moving companies are the first and the last weekends of the month.
Avoid moving on a weekend. Starting from Friday, companies begin to be very busy with lots of families moving on days when there is no work. Movers are booked on those days. Tuesdays and Wednesdays movers are less busy and better for moving companies. For the date, pick the 15th of the month or a day that’s near it.
Tip #5. Remember that cost is affected by the amount of work that needs to be done
Take note of how many people the company is sending for the move. More people coming from them translate to higher fees. These people are paid by the hour.
Consider the number of boxes and the sizes of appliances and furniture you will be taking with you. Based on that, have a fair estimate of the number of people to call in.
