Moving. Most of us hate it. Most of us cannot avoid it.
A simple move across town can feel overwhelming, let alone moving across an entire country. But what if we told you that a painless move is possible? There are professional services available for just about every step of the moving process. You might have to do some research and make a few phone calls, but that’s pretty much it! With that said, laziness comes with a price, so be prepared to invest some money!
A Professional Packer
Packing is probably the longest and most hated part of moving. To save you the trouble, find a professional organizer or full-service movers who will help you decide what to keep and what to throw away. They will also make sure your boxes are organized and easy to unpack. This service is especially helpful if you often find yourself holding on to unused items. Having a professional there will make the process easier and more productive.
Now that you have a pile of stuff that you don’t want or need, what do you do with it? You can arrange a junk hauling service to get rid of it! Some companies pick up the junk from your doorstep, while others let you rent a dumpster to fill up. If you don’t want to lift anything, you can hire a full-service junk removal team to do the labour instead.
Don’t want to send your unused items to a landfill? Many charities, such as The Salvation Army and Habitat For Humanity, have the option of at-home pick-ups!
Now that all the packing has been taken care of, it’s time to hire a moving company. Not all moving companies offer full-service moves, so do some research on the level of assistance each company can provide. You are likely to save some money if you combine services, so try to take advantage of the services offered before hiring other people. Also, remember that you’ll want to hire a quality moving service that is Canadian Association of Movers (CAM) certified to ensure that they will take good care of your stuff across the country. Tippet Richardson is CAM Certified and we boast an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau!
So you (and a few other moving professionals) have cleared out the old place, now you’ll need to clean it for the next person moving in. You can choose to sacrifice the security deposit and tell your landlord to use it for repairs and apartment cleaning. You may also choose to hire maid and cleaning services, or even specialty cleaners who focus on move-in and move-out cleaning.
Moving is a big task, and depending on your budget, you might have to pick and choose which services to hire. If you want the bulk of the move off your hands, then our full-service long-distance moving service at Tippet Richardson is perfect for you. On top of delivery and loading, we also offer packing and unpacking, furniture disassembly/ reassembly, furniture storage and green disposal. Contact us today to get a free quote!
