Vancouver Moving Company Tips: Planning, Packing and Moving
Having plates broken or furniture items ruined is not normal when moving. A reliable and expert moving company can prove to you that it is possible to move without breaking any item into pieces.
Planning for a Moving Company
If you need to move, plan it very well. Never contact a moving company if you will be moving tomorrow. Otherwise, your move will be one of the stressful moves in history. It is good to plan days or even weeks before the actual move. You will have more time for packing (you don’t have to pack everything in just 24 hours or less) and you will be able to choose the best moving company in the area.
Packing for or with a moving company
You will find that most moving companies offer packing materials and services. They can provide you with packing supplies such as boxes and tapes. The cardboard boxes are very popular but the ones that are made from recyclable plastic are gaining popularity because they are considered as a green or environment-friendly solution. They are also more efficient as they can be used for other purposes after the move if purchased. Whether cardboard or recyclable plastic boxes, you need to make sure that the boxes will be strong enough to carry and keep your things. Most boxes can handle 60-lb combined weight of items. You should also ensure that there will be enough for your stuff. Buying in advance is also advantageous so you will have more time to buy more in case you still need to pack some things. It is rare to find a moving company that has extra boxes and other packing supplies on the day of the move.
Vancouver Moving company -The Move
Vancouver moving companies have the necessary vehicles to move your things across cities, states and provinces. You may also find companies that can help you move from one country to another.
There are some things to check when choosing a Vancouver moving company. First, you need to check the range of their service. Are they licensed for moves across the country or are their services limited to local moves? You should also check their insurance. Second, identify how they charge. Some give a fixed rate depending on the distance and number of men and vehicles needed to move your things while others charge on an hourly basis, which is much more complicated. Know when the timer starts and stops. You may also find a moving company that charges by weight. The men will pick your things, bring them to the weighing center and move them to the destination. Third, you should determine what the company’s staffs will do. A moving company may take care of packing big items like cabinets and computer tables for free while another may do it for an additional charge. Fourth, you should always look for the past customers of a certain moving company that you are planning to hire. Ask them about their experiences. Did the staffs arrive on time and were they fast to load and unload the items? Did the company use cloth or any protective measure for furniture, paintings and electronics? These are only some of the common questions that you should get answered.
