Moving is stressful enough before you check the bill, so how about some money-saving strategies? As some of the best exclusive movers in Toronto, we can help you out with this. After all, we want our customers to realize that moving is not as hellish as it seems. And not paying a fortune for the services and supplies definitely helps. First of all, let us start by saying that time is money. So if you save time, you automatically save money, as well. During that time, you can work on things that matter to you… and you can be at work. Keep this in mind and hope you find this article useful!
Moving boxes and bins
Any move involves boxes and bins, so let us just start with this. Heavy-duty moving boxes are usually reusable. This means you can find second-hand moving boxes that you can safely use, if they are in a good condition. If you don’t have any put aside, ask friends or family to share some with you! Surely someone has a few lying around the garage. Another solution that exclusive movers in Toronto will provide you is renting moving bins. This solution is cheaper, eco-friendly, and sustainable. Moreover, the moving bins can hold a lot of weight and are totally reliable. When you hire movers in Toronto, don’t forget to inquire about these!
Surely you must have some of these. As humans, hoarding seems to be in our nature. Make a realistic selection and decide which objects around the house you are not using anymore. Maybe some are damaged and cannot be used, but all the others can either be sold or donated. If you want to make a few dimes while preparing for moving, consider the first option. Organize a garage sale in your neighbourhood! It’s not as difficult as it sounds, and it is a great way to catch up with neighbours and friends. However, if you don’t have the time for that or if the season is not ideal for this, consider using Marketplace, Craigslist, or other online platforms for selling your stuff. Remember: the fewer your belongings, the cheaper the move.
Delicate and fragile items
Normally, we would recommend you to use bubble wrap and paper wrap for securing these objects. But if you are on a tight budget, we know these expenses won’t be fun. So, here is how to avoid them. Use soft fabric, pillows, bags of cotton buds, and everything else that you have around the house and could work as a cushion. Don’t ever count on the fact that luck will be on your side and you won’t have to put any effort into protecting your items! It would be a pity to break anything, and believe us, it is very easy for that to happen! As exclusive movers in Toronto, we have seen lots of people regretting the fact that they didn’t cushion their items properly. Don’t be one of them! Use what you have around the house, if spending money on bubble wrap is not an option, and cushion the inside of the boxes properly!
Hire movers in Toronto
Yes, we are still with you here, we still want to help you enjoy the cheapest move possible. And hiring movers is the best way to go. Professional movers in Toronto will manage to load and unload the moving truck in no time, and they will make your life so much easier during the relocation! This will save you a lot of time that you can later use for something else. If your budget is not that restrictive and you can afford to hire exclusive movers in Toronto as packers, as well, we strongly recommend this. These men are quick and efficient, and they will make sure all of your belongings are packed and handled safely, to avoid damages. When you call to hire movers in Toronto, inquire about their professional packing services, as well!
Book the elevator and maybe also a parking spot for the big day. These aspects are definitely no-brainers, but people often forget to take care of them in due time. In case you don’t manage to do so, things will get more complicated and you will feel this on the bill, as well. Just imagine: if your movers cannot park in front of the building, they will need to park further and therefore will take longer to get to and from the truck. Since most of the exclusive movers in Toronto charge per hour, you will just have to pay for more hours. Avoid this situation!
