Canada is the 2nd largest country in the world by area and also has one of the worlds lowest population densities, meaning towns to stop in are few and stretched apart.
When moving across Canada, say from Halifax to Victoria BC you are crossing four time zones and almost six thousand kilometers, a journey that would take 59 hours non stop driving. Nevertheless, moving your goods across the country is difficult and stressful, but TWO MEN AND A TRUCK are here to limit those worries and unwanted feelings.
First and foremost, when moving in Canada it is recommended to move during the summer months because as we all know, winter roads are dicey. Now that we have that out of the way lets move onto the process!
Moving Your Belongings
When it comes to a long distance, meticulous move you have to let the professional movers take the lead, they are experienced and know what’s best to move your valuables from A to B safely.
A move across the country would be monumental to many Canadians. With TWO MEN AND A TRUCK, we are not like most moving companies. Most moving companies will not provide you with an accurate ETA (estimated time of arrival) leaving you without your belongings when you arrive in your new home. We’ll provide you with an exact arrival date, and you will have access to our GPS used to track your delivery.
The ability for you to know where your belongings are, in the world, at all times eliminates un-needed stress.
If you are moving long distance but not a “flight worthy” distance we suggest to drive your car with a few items to tide you over until your move is complete. If you are flying, you will have to decide to sell your car or ship it to your new home.
Another critical decision is, what are you going to do with your current home? If you are renting, your off the hook! But if you own your place, will you sell your property or use it as an investment and rent it out to a family?
Moving Your Mind
Moving your belongings is easy; it’s moving your mind, which is difficult. You will be leaving behind memories, friends, family, and familiarity. As daunting as moving to a new city on a fresh start may seem to you. It’ s vital to stay focused and maintain a clear head; its easy to allow your feelings to control your thoughts, which could lead to irrational actions. Moving long distance means you are moving forward and progressing down the path you are creating. Have confidence in your decision!
