What Should You Expect During Moving Day?

On the moving day, you should expect our moving crew to arrive at the scheduled time. They will come equipped with the necessary tools and equipment to move your belongings safely and efficiently. Before we begin, we may conduct a brief walkthrough of your home to assess the items that need to be moved and address any specific instructions or concerns you may have.

If requested, our movers will carefully pack and load your belongings onto the moving truck, taking care to protect fragile items and furniture with padding and blankets. Throughout the process, you can expect diligence and efficiency. Rest assured, your belongings are handled with care and loaded securely for transport.

Depending on the size of your move, loading the truck may take several hours to complete. After everything is loaded onto the truck, the movers will transport your belongings to your new home or destination. Upon arrival, they will unload your belongings and place them in their designated rooms according to your instructions.

Should You Help the Movers?

Given the intensive nature of the moving process and the use of specialized moving equipment, it is best to let our professionals conduct their work on their own. Doing so minimizes liabilities and ensures that we conduct our work in a swift and streamlined manner. It is only natural to want to offer assistance on your moving day, but some tasks-such as moving furniture-are best left to professionals.

That said, there are certain things that you can do to make the residential or commercial relocation go smoothly, such as:

  • Pack ahead of time if possible
  • Label boxes clearly
  • Clearly mark any valuable items as fragile
  • Provide easy access and parking for moving trucks
  • Remain available for questions
  • ...and more

If you're able, you can also gather easy-to-lift items in a central location before we arrive, in order to expedite the process. To avoid injury, though, leave the heavy stuff to us.

Do Moving Companies Supply Boxes and Packing Materials?

In a perfect world, moving your belongings to a new location would be a simple, two-step process that involves putting items into a truck and driving away. Unfortunately, there is usually more you have to do. You're expected to pack and box your belongings. It's more orderly and safer.

Whether you wish to pack your items yourself or enlist the expertise of time-saving professionals, you can always rent or purchase boxes, tubs, and packing materials through our moving company.

Do You Have to Pack or Box All Your Items?

While some items may be suitable for transport without packing or boxing, such as sturdy furniture or large appliances, it's advisable to pack fragile, valuable, or smaller items securely to ensure their safety and preservation during the move.

Are There Any Non-Admissable Items?

There are some items that we will not admit into our moving trucks, such as:

  • Explosive Materials: This category includes fireworks, ammunition, as well as railroad or road flares.
  • Compressed Gases: Items under pressure, like propane, hairspray, and helium, fall into this category.
  • Oxidizing Agents: Common household items such as bleach, pool chemicals, fertilizers, and chlorine are considered oxidizers.
  • Flammable Solids: This includes fuel tablets, barbecue starter pellets, hay, matches, and wood chips.
  • Flammable Liquids: Gasoline, alcohol, cleaning fluids, lamp oil, kerosene, and household cleaners fall under this category.
  • Corrosive Substances: Items like oven cleaner, toilet cleaners, liquid plumber, drain cleaner, household cleaner, lye, acids, and batteries are corrosive.
  • Toxic substances: Pesticides, herbicides, fumigants, wood preservatives, photographic chemicals, and similar items are classified as poisons.

Best Movers's Moving Supplies

Plastic Tubs Available for Rent

Our moving company offers rentable plastic tubs that provide a convenient and eco-friendly alternative to traditional cardboard boxes. With dimensions of 24" x 20" x 12" and a volume of 70 liters (2.4 cubic feet), these durable tubs offer ample space for packing and transporting belongings of all varieties.

Their sturdy construction ensures that items remain secure during transit, while their stackable design maximizes space efficiency both in the moving truck and at your destination. Plus, by opting for these reusable tubs, you contribute to reducing waste and environmental impact associated with cardboard box disposal.

Do You Need To Be Present on Moving Day?

Whether you need to be present on the day of the professional move depends on several factors, including your preferences, the services you've contracted, and the requirements of other involved parties.

If you're moving out of a secured building or gated community, you may need to be present to grant access to the movers and ensure the security of your belongings during loading. If you have items that require special handling or delicate care, being present allows you to communicate specific instructions.

If you're unable to be present on the day of your move due to other commitments or logistical constraints, you can appoint a trusted representative to oversee the process on your behalf. Just be sure to communicate any special instructions or requirements to the moving company in advance to ensure a smooth and successful move.

What is the Difference Between Local and Long-Distance Moving?

Local moving typically refers to relocations within a relatively short distance, typically within the same city or metropolitan area, or within a radius of roughly 80 kilometers. Typically, the cost of a local move is determined by calculating the hours of labor involved and little else, as there is less planning and preliminary work involved.

Long-distance moving involves relocating to a destination that is significantly farther away, usually beyond provincial or national borders. Because of this, long-distance moves typically involve more extensive planning, coordination, and logistics compared to local moves. They may also require special considerations such as interstate regulations, additional transportation time, and potentially multiple days for delivery.

In-Home Consultations with Professional Movers

Movers don’t succeed in the business of relocations just because they drive quickly or arrive at your door on time. The best movers know that an initial consultation and walkthrough are integral to the success of a project, and that’s why we offer in-home consultations to all clients.

Our experienced movers meet with you on-site, carefully assessing the layout and specific requirements of your residence or business. This personalized approach allows us to create a detailed plan for a seamless move, addressing any unique challenges and providing an accurate quote.

By understanding the intricacies of your space and belongings, we can guarantee that we’ll be fully prepared on moving day to execute a smooth and efficient relocation.
