Emotional stress, mental stress, physical stress – you name it and that stress is a part of moving.It’s understandable, there are a lot of things going on and you may not have wanted to move in the first place. But stress is counter-productive when you’re trying to make a move.
Don’t let it get you down! Deal with it head on with these tried and true stress-free strategies
Little ones get excited at the start of a journey in a new and strange van but after an hour or two boredom can easily set in and the newness of the van will have lost its sheen. Therefore you really need to prepare for a journey which, to them, is going to seem twice as long as it does for you. So think about bringing along the following:
For the most part, moving can be a real pain in the you know what. Finding good Toronto movers, packing up all your valuables, dealing with lenders or leasers, cleaning up afterwards. The list of negative or less than fun things goes on and on.
Still, moving provides a unique opportunity for some real positives and, if you approach it the right way, it can really improve your life.
When the mercury soars on moving day, hot weather can ignite your stress levels. Whether you're the one doing the heavy lifting or you are overseeing a team of friends or have hired Toronto movers, you will want to take extra precautions to avoid overexertion. Here are some guidelines to prevent heat-related injuries on moving day:
Hiring a professional mover well ahead of time is important, but when is the best time to book? This answer will vary based on a number of factors including what needs to be moved, when it needs to be moved and who is doing the moving.
Seasonal Affects on Scheduling
Like many other industries, the moving business experiences high and low periods. The busiest season by far is summer when more people are buying new homes. If you plan to move on a weekend in the summer then you need to book at least 3-4 weeks in advance. For moves during the week in the summer 2-3 weeks in advance should be fine.
It doesn’t always happen, but every now and then a piece of furniture or appliance is just too big to get out the front door. It’s an issue that Tower Moving Toronto know how to handle, but if you’re doing it on your own this can be a problem that holds up the entire day. Use the pro strategies below to get bulky items out and into the moving truck.
Reposition the Furniture or Appliance
Sometimes all it takes is repositioning the furniture so that you can come at it from another angle. You might need to flip it vertically or on its side to make it work. Having three people help, two to move and one to guide, is usually the best way to get the job done.
Which of the following scenarios best describes you?
A. You are the overambitious type who loves to plan, organize and create spreadsheets (your a pro at Excel). Three weeks in advance of moving day, you are completely packed!
B. It’s the night before the big move and oh my gosh, you still aren’t packed! You begin frantically throwing stuff in boxes, dog toys and tax returns can go in a box together, right?
C. Somewhere in between.
Whether you are Type A, Type B, or somewhere in between, everyone could use some pointers on labeling.
Making a move, but don’t have a lot of stuff? Just moving across town? There are times when you may question whether you need to hire a moving company for your “small” move. But don’t let the number of items or lack of kilometres fool you. There are many instances when a “small” move is best left to the professionals.
It Won’t Fit in One Trip
The more trips you have to make the longer the move will take, and the more you’ll have to spend on gas. If you can’t fit everything in your car in one trip you may want to consider calling a mover. Moving trucks are great, because they’re big. In most cases everything can be loaded up and transported in a single trip. The convenience factor alone can make hiring movers worth every penny.
Need moving boxes, but don’t want to pay for them? The cost of moving boxes can add up quick. In fact, many people spend $100-200 just on moving boxes, and that’s not factoring in specialty boxes that cost more than your standard cardboard container.
Don’t start plunking down cash for new moving boxes just yet. We’ve put together our top tips for finding the best free boxes for your move.
