Preparation and planning are essential components of a successful, cost-effective move.
The best way to save money is to do the packing yourself. Stop by CBC MOVING for packing materials and friendly, professional advice.
Make sure you pack your belongings properly and label each box clearly. Pack your books and other heavy objects in small boxes so they’re easier to handle. Squat, don’t bend over, and use your legs to lift any heavy objects. Also, disassemble large furniture pieces so they’ll fit easily through the door.
These steps will cut down on the time it takes our movers to load and unload your belongings, and will help you save money on your move.
Be safe, smart and efficient! If you’re doing your own packing, make sure you give yourself plenty of time; at least six weeks before your move date and plan carefully. Careful planning and packing will save you time, money, and a lot of hair pulling.
Decide what will move with you and what will stay behind. There may be items that you don’t need anymore or that aren’t worth moving. Perhaps your move is temporary and certain unnecessary things can be put into storage. No matter what the answer is, decide beforehand what stays and what goes. If you have items already in storage, make sure you take a thorough inventory to ensure you’re not moving items you could do without.
