SThe arrival to a new home includes the much-feared move, both for the work that represents the packaging and transfer of furniture and objects and of course the cost. But do not stress, although it seems a very complicated task, with a little organization and planning you can do it without major setbacks.
Take it easy, as the saying goes: new house, new life. Whether you are alone, as a couple or as a family, moving implies the start of a new project, which includes a change of environment, location and places to carry out daily activities.
Avoid falling into despair, so to start positively you must plan in advance a good move, for this, we present some simple suggestions that may help you in this task.
First of all, the change of residence is an excellent opportunity to review all the contents of your home and choose what you really want to take to your new home and what is best to get rid of once and for all. Also, the fewer objects you have for the day of the move, it will be easier. There is no point paying for the shipment of items you will never need, it is an unnecessary expense.
Who will take care of transportation?
Once you have defined everything you will transport to your new home, dedicate a good time, it is recommended four or five weeks before the event, to find information about the removal companies: what services they offer, guarantees and, above all, prices.
Today there are moving companies that, in addition to the transportation of all the household goods, offer the packing service like Calgary Movers. They go one day before to your home and they are in charge of packing everything.
In addition, many companies include in the service insurance that protects everything that will be transported in case of breakages, mistreatment or loss.
We recommend that you select several companies and ask them to visit you to make a budget, which must be given in writing specifying the conditions. Never close the deal over the phone, since later they could modify the costs. Beware of excessively cheap moving companies. Quality, service, and efficiency come at a price.
Once you have chosen a company, check that it meets the requirements established by law related to the sector. Sign the contract only when everything is according to your requirements. Check that the document includes the company’s data, the inventory, the route, the date of the move and the price.
Each thing in its place
As we mentioned, many moving companies include in the service the packing of all the objects, although it is obvious that this increases the cost for the work they will do. However, this task of packaging allyour properties can be done by yourself, it is not so complicated and you will save a good amount of money.
