You’re getting ready to move homes and wondering about your options. Should you go the DIY route and pack everything up yourself, enlisting the help of family and friends to do the heavy lifting? Or should you hire a moving company to do all the packing, moving, and unpacking for you?
Maybe you’re in an office and need to move a large heavy item from one floor to another. Should you attempt to do it yourself? What if your entire business is moving locations, and you need to move all equipment and furniture from one office to another?
Perhaps you have a heavy piece of furniture, like an antique wooden armoire or a piano. You might try to do it yourself, but the risks of dropping and breaking it are high. Would hiring a mover make sense in this instance?
There’s also the issue of long distance versus local moves. Sometimes people move just around the corner, and sometimes they move clear across the province. Will a moving company even move you if you’re just going across the street?
It turns out, there are a multitude of services that a moving company could provide for you. Teams of professional movers are able to use their years of experience to customize your move to fit your needs. After being in business for decades, a moving company like TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® has definitely seen and heard it all. It’s almost a guarantee that any type of move you need, we’ve already seen and done.
Just in case you were wondering whether your type of move is the right fit for hiring a moving company, we’ve put together a list of all the most common move options available for you to choose from.
Full pack. Packers come to the home or business and expertly wrap and pack and all items; boxes are labeled to ensure they arrive to the correct location.
Partial pack. Packers wrap and pack one item, one room or the entire home, whatever you request.
Unpack. Packers unpack and put away items as directed or labeled by boxes.
Local move. The most common service; “local” is defined differently by each province and is usually based on the distance of the move.
Intra-province move. Long distance within a province; definition of long distance varies by province.
Business move/Office Moving. This could include a large corporate office, school, or even a home office.
Home move. Moving a residence.
Move one item (custom). Movers can move one item of choice to be transported elsewhere.
Internal move. Movers move large pieces from room to room as requested.
As you can see, moving companies are able to fit any move to your needs. Whether you’re moving to a new residence, switching office locations, or moving a single piece of furniture, there is no doubt that hiring a moving company is one of the best ways to make sure your personal possessions are taken care of and arrive safely, no matter where they’re going.
