Whether you are moving overseas, across country or down the street, moving can be an extremely stressful event that requires a great deal of time, energy and money, however, with careful planning anyone can move with little or no effort.
Here are some tips for creating a well planned move:
- The first thing you should do is create a detailed moving checklist that includes items like the phone number of your mover, dates and times in which you plan to move, emergency contact information and tasks that need to be performed upon leaving and arriving at each destination such as packing, unpacking and cleaning.
Moving is a very tedious job, but proper arrangements can be made to ensure the process is a lot less cumbersome.
In Montreal, families have been relying on the services of Kenwood’s moving and storage for decades. Each and every city or town has their own reliable transportation providers, you simply need to find them. Working with a trusted company like Kenwood ensures that there are no surprises when everything is said and done.
- Research the best moving company and ask for recommendations from family and friends before hiring because they are not all created equal.
Remember, nothing is worse than waiting for a moving truck on moving day (with all of your boxes and furniture laying on the curbside) that does not arrive or arrives late because the driver got a better deal somewhere else or simply decides not to show up.
It can and it does happen a great deal more than you might think because some movers try to entice customers by offering lower rates and often overbook in order to compensate. When this happens they will move the person who pays the highest fee, offers a bonus or has the shortest and easiest move and they will make everyone else wait. Why? Because, they know they can.
If this does occur, you will have a difficult time trying to find a replacement mover on short notice. Most local movers are booked solid, especially on designated moving days.
- It is a known fact that people prefer to get an online moving estimate because it saves time and provides them with a clear and transparent picture of what the total costs will be, however, you should always do a follow up call to ensure your needs and requirements are being met and that everyone is on the same page.
- Be certain to ask if the movers and packers employed by the firm are experienced and if who will be responsible for any damages incurred.
Planning ahead does not ensure that everything will go as planned, there are always bumps along the way but with a plan you will be more prepared to deal with any and all issues that arise.
A reputable moving company will make the move as seamless as possible and will make certain to answer all of your questions and put your mind at ease. They want you to hire them the next time you are moving and it is highly unlikely that you will if you have not received a good service.
