When Should I Start Planning My Residential or Commercial Move?

By starting the planning process early, you can alleviate stress, reduce the likelihood of last-minute complications, and ensure that your residential or commercial move is executed efficiently and with minimal disruption to your daily life or business operations. A general rule of thumb is to begin planning your move at least two to three months in advance, especially for larger moves or relocations involving complex logistics.

Starting the planning process early allows you to create a detailed timeline and checklist of tasks to be completed leading up to moving day.

This includes tasks such as:

  • Decluttering and organizing belongings
  • Obtaining packing supplies
  • Scheduling movers or transportation
  • Notifying relevant parties of the move
  • ...and more

For residential moves, early planning also provides the opportunity to secure your preferred moving date since our schedule can fill up as we approach the day. This is particularly important during peak moving seasons when availability may be limited.

For commercial moves, there are far more moving parts and more people who need to know the plan. Early planning allows businesses to minimize disruptions to operations and ensure a seamless transition to the new location. This may involve coordinating with employees, IT departments, and other stakeholders to plan for equipment disassembly, transportation, and reinstallation, as well as updating signage, marketing materials, and customer communications.

How Far in Advance Should You Book Your Moving Appointment?

It's best to book your move as soon as you know your date. This will ensure you have a spot reserved with our moving company and give you enough time to prepare for the move.

For local moves, it's recommended that you book at least 4-6 weeks in advance, while long-distance moves should be booked at least 8-10 weeks in advance due to the longer distance and logistics involved.

What are the Benefits of Working With a Moving Company?

Even the smallest moving assignments can introduce a lot of stress to your life if you're not careful. Professional expertise ensures efficient and safe handling of your belongings throughout the entire moving process. Fragile items require a delicate touch and proper packing, and the disassembly of furniture requires ample experience if you want to stay on schedule.

The expertise of celebrated movers frees up your schedule to focus on important tasks such as organizing your new home, familiarizing yourself with the neighborhood, or attending to work and family responsibilities. Not only does proficiency save you money-it saves you time, too.

Can You Leave Movers Alone?

We highly recommend that you be present during the moving process. Although our team is trained and experienced in handling all aspects of your move, having you there ensures that everything goes according to plan and that any questions or concerns can be addressed in real-time.

Do Movers Expect You to Help?

It's not expected, but if you'd like, there are things you can do to help with the moving process. Our movers will take care of all the heavy lifting and logistics, but if you can assist with smaller tasks such as packing or organizing items prior to our movers arriving, it can help speed up the process and potentially save you money on labour costs.

However, we understand that not everyone is physically able to help with the moving process, and that's completely okay. Our team is trained and equipped to handle all aspects of the move, so there's no need for you to feel obligated to help.

What to Expect When Movers Come to Pack?

When our moving team arrives to pack your belongings, they'll first assess the size and scope of the job. They'll then start by carefully wrapping and packing items in appropriate boxes or containers. Our team is trained to handle all types of items, from furniture to delicate antiques.

During the packing process, you can expect our team to communicate with you about any fragile or valuable items and ask for your input on how you would like certain items packed.

Once everything is packed and ready, our team will load the boxes and furniture onto the moving truck using proper equipment and techniques. We'll then transport everything to your new home promptly and efficiently.

Can You Leave Stuff in Drawers for Movers?

It's generally recommended to empty your drawers before moving. While it might seem like a time-saver to leave items in drawers, this can actually make the furniture heavier and more difficult to move.

Additionally, items inside the drawers can shift or even become damaged during the move. For items in dressers or desks, consider packing them separately. This will make the furniture lighter and safer to transport and reduce the risk of loss or damage to your belongings.

What Items Cannot be Moved?

There are certain items that our team cannot transport due to safety or legal reasons. These include hazardous materials such as chemicals, flammable liquids, explosives, and perishable food items. It's important to properly dispose of these items before the move.

Additionally, some valuable or sentimental items may be better suited for personal transportation rather than moving with the rest of your belongings. This can include important documents, family heirlooms, and valuable jewelry.

Do Moving Companies Provide Packing Supplies?

Yes, at Best Movers we provide packing supplies for an additional fee. However, if you prefer to pack items or use alternative materials, our team can offer guidance and recommendations on the best ways to pack and protect your belongings.

It's important to properly label all boxes and containers with their contents and destination room to ensure a smooth unpacking process. Our team can also provide labels and markers to help with this process.

What if Something Gets Damaged During the Move?

Reputable moving companies like ours take great care in handling your belongings and ensuring they arrive at your new home safely. However, accidents can happen. In the rare case that something does get damaged during the move, our company offers insurance options to cover the damages.

We also recommend taking inventory of your items before and after the move and labeling any fragile or valuable items so our team can handle them with extra care.

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

The main differences between a local and a long-distance move is, obviously, the distance that your belongings will be transported and the logistical challenges of crossing provincial or national borders.

Local Move

A local move is typically defined as being within an 80-kilometer radius of your current location, typically within the same city or province. Local moves are usually charged based on hourly rates, and the cost may also depend on the number of movers needed and the size of your home.

Long-Distance Move

A typical long-distance move is any distance beyond 500 kilometers and can even involve crossing provincial borders. This type of move will likely take multiple days to complete, and you will be charged a flat rate based on your belongings' total weight or volume.

If you're unsure whether your move is considered local or long-distance, don't hesitate to reach out to our team for clarification.


We offer a wide array of moving services to cover your every requirement. Whether you're moving across town or across the country, our team is equipped with the skills and knowledge to ensure a smooth transition.

How Much Does It Cost to Hire a Moving Company?

One often overlooked factor that can influence the cost of a moving company's services is the accessibility of both the current and destination locations. Properties with difficult access, such as narrow staircases, elevators, long carrying distances, or limited parking for moving trucks, can significantly impact the time and effort required.

Other factors that influence moving costs include:

  • Time of year: The time of year can also affect moving costs, with peak seasons (typically summer months) commanding higher rates due to increased demand. Booking your move during off-peak times may result in lower prices and greater availability.
  • Distance of the move: The farther the distance of your move, the higher the transportation costs are likely to be. Long-distance moves typically incur higher fees compared to local moves due to fuel, labour, and time considerations.
  • Amount of service required: The extent of services you require from your moving company can influence the cost. Full-service options, including packing, unpacking, furniture assembly, and specialty item handling, typically come with higher price tags compared to basic moving services.

How Can You Make Your Move Cheaper?

Moving can be expensive, but there are ways to make it more affordable.

Here are some tips on how you can save money when moving:

  • Plan ahead: The earlier you start planning your move, the more time you have to find the best deals. Plus, last-minute moves usually come with a higher price tag.
  • Declutter before you move: Take the time to go through your belongings and get rid of any items you no longer need. This will save you money on moving costs and give you a fresh start in your new place.
  • Opt for a mid-week or off-season move: Moving during peak season (usually summer) or on weekends can come with a higher price tag. Consider moving during the week or in the off-season to save money.
  • Pack some items yourself: For items that aren't fragile or valuable, consider packing them yourself instead of paying for a packing service. This can save you money on labour costs.

What are Some Moving Day Mistakes to Watch Out For?

Some common mistakes on moving day include:

  • Underestimating the time needed: Many property owners underestimate how long it takes to pack and prepare for a move, leading to last-minute rushing and stress. Our advice? Start packing well in advance and create a detailed moving timeline to stay organized and on track.
  • Not decluttering beforehand: Moving provides an excellent opportunity to declutter and get rid of items you no longer need. Failing to declutter before moving can result in unnecessary expenses and wasted time transporting items that could have been discarded or donated.
  • Forgetting to label boxes: Properly labeling boxes with their contents and destination room is essential for an efficient unpacking process. Neglecting to label boxes can lead to confusion and frustration when trying to locate specific items in your new home.

How Do You Prepare for Piano Moving?

Preparing for piano moving requires careful planning and attention to detail to ensure the safety of the instrument and those involved in the move. The process begins with an assessment of the logistics and small details. Are there narrow hallways to worry about? Are there long staircases to take into consideration? Factors like these can't be overlooked.

To prepare the piano for moving and transport, it's best to prioritize the removal of any loose or fragile attachments, whether they're wheels or music stands. The goal is to make the piano as easy to move as possible!

Do Movers Take Apart Furniture?

When it comes to residential or commercial moving services, there are a lot of things that can simplify and streamline the moving process. One of these is furniture disassembly. By taking apart tables, chairs, and bed frames prior to the moving day, you'll minimize the risk of setbacks, delays, and more.

Our professional movers offer furniture disassembly as part of their services to ensure that large and bulky items can be safely transported without damage. Our team has the necessary tools and expertise to disassemble furniture efficiently and reassemble it at the new location, saving you time and effort.
