Moving is a complex process, with packing as a big portion of the job. But, it could be easier with Professional Movers Ottawa!

Professional Tip #1 – Get the Proper Equipment 

Whether you opt to pack by yourself or take advantage of our packing services, using the proper moving supplies is essential for a successful move. You want your valuable items to get to the new location in one shape and without a single scratch, and that’s hard to achieve with flaky boxes found on the street. You need packing supplies that can handle the weight and the transport. We suggest purchasing your boxes from Professional Movers Ottawa or another reliable company that provides professional-grade materials. The pro quality is economical and will aid in the prevention of damage during the relocation. 

Professional Tip #2 – Identifying Boxes Correctly 

No matter if it’s a case of a local Ottava move or a long-distance move, your relocation will go much smoother, if the boxes are clearly marked. You should specify the room which you want the items to go in the new home or commercial building, rather than where they originated from. Always check to see whether a package is delicate, contains glassware or dishes, or holds liquids that require the box to be kept upright. 

Professional Tip #3 – Sell, Donate, Dispose 

Moving is the best spring cleaning you can do! Before you start packing, go through your home and declutter – give some thought to all of the things you no longer use or need. Take advantage of this opportunity to get rid of, sell, or donate any undesirable things. Why pay for relocating goods you won’t use, when you can sell them and make money, or give them out and make another family happy. You can even check out storage services in Ottawa if you have items you are not ready to throw out yet, but don’t want them in your new home. 

Professional Tip #4 – Book Services in Time 

Book ahead of time if you’re hiring Ottawa moving services, renting supplies, or hiring specialists to work on the home. If you take too long, you may wind up paying more or not being able to get a truck or movers at all, particularly during peak moving season. 

Professional Tip #5 – Prep a Bag of Essentials 

The items you want to have access to at all times throughout the relocation and/or as soon as you arrive at your new house should be in your essentials bag. It should accompany you on your journey so that you have your basics on hand. To be extra safe, you can pack a large survival box with some hygiene products, towels and other bathroom supplies, bed sheets, plastic utensils and plates, food, beverages, meds, and an emergency kit for the entire family.  

Once you begin planning your relocation, our specialists can be on hand every step of the way to make sure you have a stress-free moving experience. Don’t hesitate to contact us and get a free moving quote today!

I just moved from my home in Kanata to a townhouse in Kanata. Ajay, Gurpal and Shane were at my house at the time they said. They where all friendly and very carefully with my furniture as I have some antiques furniture. They wraped everything and packed it in the truck nice and neat. I would recommend the company and if you can ask for these 3 guys. They were excellent.
