Simple But Useful Tips from Professional Movers in Toronto!
Why pay to move things you’ll never use? Discard unnecessary items and donate gently used clothing and small house goods to a worthy cause with our UPCYCLE program.
Organize your belongings
Create your “move book” by using a large notebook or binder to bring together all the details of your move in a single place. It should carry any estimates you receive, lists you make, contact information, and the contents of any boxes you pack—this is where you’ll keep your Move Plan.
Find a Moving Company
Make an early, informed decision and then lean on the moving company you chose, so they can help you throughout the process.
Create an inventory now is the time to take stock of your belongings. We’ll help you create a detailed list that can be used to help value your belongings for insurance coverage and keep your packing organized.
Be sure to have enough boxes and supplies for your big day! Our relocation specialists can suggest the appropriate style and number of boxes, and can have them delivered right to your home. Or order your supplies at our online moving box store. Give yourself plenty of time to pack with the proper materials and remember that TSC is happy to pack and unpack for you.
First, pack what you don’t use. Placing heavier objects at the bottom, make sure that your boxes aren’t too heavy for someone to lift. Mark the outside of the boxes clearly.
Let people know your new address
If you are moving or thinking of moving it is important to ensure that you change your address with the proper authorities.
Whether moving or temporarily relocating to a new home or office, Canada Post’s Mail Forwarding service allows you to rest easy knowing that you’re not missing important mail and that your personal information stays safe.

Keep important items with you
Place essentials in a designated suitcase or bag. Make sure that your Move Book and your jewellery, prescriptions, phones, chargers, etc. are accessible.
