Properly packing your belongings and valuables for moving day can be a bit of an art. You can pick up specialty boxes for a variety of different items from your local moving supply store or we can provide it for you. Place heavy items in small boxes and light items in large. Tape them shut and be sure to label them to their designated room.
This is a perfect time to get rid of some of the less desirable things that have been taking up valuable space. Try first to find someone who could use them before carting them off to the landfill as we have all heard the saying “one person’s junk is another person’s treasure”, besides dump fees have risen substantially over the years.
Don’t forget to transfer your utilities and other accounts to the new address. Moving expenses are tax deductible if more than 40km. Keep all receipts.
Pets are best transferred in a car with the friendly faces they know to make them more at ease. Defrost the freezer and clean fridge the day prior to the move.Help children become accustomed to the idea of moving by allowing them to pack some of their favorite toys, games etc. Leave the moving to us as we have the experience and equipment to get the job done right.
Special attention is required for your sensitive electronic items. If possible pack them in the original box they came in if you managed to hold on to them as they are the perfect fit.
Books can become incredibly heavy when too many are packed in one large box. Better to use several smaller boxes and avoid the strain.
Use newspaper to pack your fragile items and protect them from possible damage. No need to purchase products like bubble wrap or Styrofoam, besides newsprint can crumple to the shape required and is recyclable.
