I will tell you when is the best time to move

When considering your relocation and looking for the moving company, the best time to start is whenever you’re ready. Typically, North Vancouver movers are busier between May and September. I would recommend you try to be very considerate when planning your move and provide the moving company a date window for loading your goods. Usually, it takes up to five days. Your flexibility allows a better working pace for the moving crew. Just imagine that usually, these moves do not happen individually. Most of the companies have to take care of more than one batch of shipments at once. Anyway, these simple considerations will make your life a little easier.

Do you know what an inventory is?

When hiring a company for your move from Calgary, you will get an inventory list, which is not obligatory but is functional. It gives detailed information about the condition of your stuff when the mover receives them. It is necessary to list everything correctly. There are two important listings. Professional movers mark some items as PBO packed by the owner. PBO means that these will not be listed contents, as the driver cannot see through the cardboard boxes. The company will not be responsible for the state of the objects. 

The other listing is CP, which means Carrier Packed container.

There’s a line with letters and numbers on your inventory form. Your driver uses inventory code to note the condition of that particular object and any existing damage. You can find the explanation of each symbol on the top of the sheet in the legend. 

For example

  • SC –stands for scratched, 
  • C – for chipped, 
  • 3 – right side of a piece, etc.

On this form, you need to keep track of the items and their condition, both when loaded and shipped to the destination. If any damage occurs to any of your belongings while being loaded, you should note it in the far right-hand column, according to the number of the item. 

If you find damages after the loading, you should inform your moving team and clear up any discrepancies. It is your proof in case any damage has been caused, and a claims process will be initiated.

Usually, moving companies are careful when handling customer’s items, and the inventory is their protection against felonious damage claims. I would say it is a tool for security for both parties.

What should you do with your jewelry and other valuable items?

You know that: 

  1. jewelry, 
  2. money, 
  3. antiques, 
  4. stamp collections and 
  5. any other item worth more than $100 per pound in weight 

– are all items of extraordinary value. I recommend you to carry it with you directly. If you decide to move it by a moving company, you should announce it to a representative beforehand.

To make sure you are not limited to a minimum liability with such articles. You should complete and sign a version of a high-value inventory form provided by your mover. Don’t forget to file the “Extraordinary (Unusual) Value Article Declaration” box on the Bill of Lading. 

It is essential, as Canadian movers have different procedures to follow, and you should inform yourself from a relocation consultant.

Moving could be just what one needs for a fresh start. If you are planning to, get in touch with Toronto Movers to help you out.

Helpful ideas on how to prepare your home and yourself for move day?

Movers will ask you for several consecutive days on which to load your stuff. Usually, it may depend on the amount of your load and time of the year.  When you remain flexible, especially during busy seasons, it is key to a good relocation and a stress-free relocation.

You will be contacted about arrival time at least one day before the load day by the driver or a customer service representative. If you have unanticipated changes that have taken place, please do inform your moving company at the earliest possible time. 

Here are a couple of short examples: your road is now under construction, and it might affect the access of the truck, or you haven’t finished your packing yet, etc.

Your home should be ready for the arrival of the moving crew. I would recommend moving anything off the driveway, porch, and walkways. If you can take the doors off the hinges – it will help move your larger belongings safely and faster. 

I advise you to have water on hand, especially on a hot summer day for the driver and the crew. Your thoughtfulness will be much appreciated.

 All our moving companies at Camovers are equipped well. No worries, movers will cover the floor with runners, door jamb protectors, and railing protectors if applicable to make the loading process more accessible and safer. That’s why you can relax and get all the jobs done by professionals by hiring the best moving service for your needs. 

Do you know how to prepare your appliances for moving?

It’s better to disconnect your electrical and gas appliances. Your moving estimator can help you understand how to service your items. Usually, our local moving companies have business relationships with local service providers that handle this type of service. Ask beforehand who your mover is using as these people will enter your home to provide the service.

Brilliant moving & packing tips to make moving easy!

Time flies so does the prep time for your moving – which is about the most crucial step. But don’t worry, I’ve gathered here a list of tips and tricks to make you’re moving as smoothly as possible. You know what they say, you might have 99 problems, but your relocation surely won’t be one!

Your moving preparation starts way before your packing by ensuring you have enough packing supplies. It will facilitate your time and will save your energy. So my first advice to you is closely related to boxes, containers, and any packing supplies:

  • Don’t be shy – ask for a lot of boxes! 

It’s impossible to predict the future, so you never know what circumstances you might encounter when packing and moving. Better safe than sorry, right? That’s why when planning your Calgary to North Vancouver move, use more boxes. This approach helps avoid many issues during the moving process.

  • All sizes matter, it’s an inclusive business

I know that many people underestimate the importance of smaller boxes. Make sure you don’t only have large containers but also a good amount of medium-sized and many small-sized boxes when packing. I’m sure that a lot of items will benefit from packing them individually.

I always tell people that packing is an art in itself. It is all about keeping your belongings intact for their arrival at their new home. Make sure you’re not throwing things in randomly, but approach packing responsibly and patiently.

  • It’s not only about the boxes

Boxes are for sure necessary but don’t forget that you will need a variety of other moving supplies. You will probably need much more tape than you’d initially imagine

  1. a tape gun would also come in very handy, 
  2. packing paper is a must, and you would need a lot of it. 

Our moving companies may offer you any moving supply imaginable, so make sure you order all the additional goods when ordering your boxes.

  • Keep your fragile items safe

Take some extra time and separate your fragile objects and label them as so. This way, your moving company will know exactly which boxes need additional care and where to place them in the van.

  • Perks of being a paper packer

Especially when packing fragile objects, make sure you use proper packing paper. Newspapers may stain your valuables, so investing in quality packing paper will save you from possible inconveniences.
