Finding Temporary Accommodation When Doing A Cross Country Move In Canada

Finding Temporary Accommodation When Doing A Cross Country Move In Canada When you’re planning a cross country move in Canada, there are going to be multiple factors to consider, no doubt. Balancing the timeline of events will be a little tricky. If you’re selling your home, your closing date may not have the 30-60 day window that will allow you to find a new place to live with ample notice. And even if it does, you might not find the perfect permanent dwelling in that time.   When you’re moving cross country in Canada, even if you’re not selling your home, but plan to move out of a rental, or plan to rent out your existing home, you have get used to your new neighbourhood. Deciding where to move in Toronto, for example, is not the same as deciding where to live in Vancouver. Traffic and distances are different – what took you 30 minutes to commute in Vancouver could take more than an hour in a bigger city. School districts may be organized differently, or come with different rules. Access to amenities could make your life more or less difficult.   And that’s all on top of finding the right space, with the right number of bedrooms, and the right decor style that fits you.   In short, moving is not as cut and dry as packing up one home, and then moving into another on the same day, or even within a few days.   Other times, you need a temporary place to stay while your home is being repaired or renovated.   You might need to...

Tips from movers in North Vancouver: How to prepare for moving into a boat or yacht

How to prepare for moving into a boat or yacht As movers in North Vancouver, we love the coast just as much as anyone else here. This is why we think moving onto a boat is such a great idea! Of course, if you have the will for it! Whether you are retiring and fully moving onto a boat, or taking a couple years off from work and stashing your things in North Vancouver storage to go exploring, we can help you prepare for your move. Before you even contact moving companies in North Vancouver, start downsizing You will need to follow tips for downsizing just as if you were moving into a smaller house. According to Visit My Harbour, getting rid of your stuff is the number one thing to do when moving from a house into a 300 to 500 square foot boat. This also applies to appliances, as they can be quite heavy, and are not always necessary. So start early, and be ruthless! You usually need a lot less than you think. Check out our tips for downsizing from movers in North Vancouver: http://www.fergusonmoving.com//blog/moving-tips-downsizing-vancouver Have a yard sale or talk to a local charity about donating prior to moving in North Vancouver Especially if you are moving from a North Vancouver home after many years, you will most likely have many things to get rid of after downsizing.

Advice from a cross-country Canadian moving company on Quebec moving day

Advice from a cross–country Canadian moving company on business promotion during Quebec’s moving day If you haven’t heard, thousands of Quebecois residents had to move on July 1, while the rest of the country was celebrating Canada Day. As a cross–country Canadian moving company, we couldn’t help but notice, and get excited, about the efforts of 3M to help people out on a mass-moving day like that in Quebec. Here are a couple links to read more about the story: http://globalnews.ca/news/2798947/moving–day-eh-thousands-of-quebecers-pack-up/ http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/about-200000-people-moved-in-quebec-today While we applaud 3M for their efforts to pay-it-forward for Quebec movers, we thought it would also be valuable to give some tips to other companies who want to do some promotional work on moving days. If you are outside Quebec, keep in mind that in other provinces, people will most likely move at the beginning and end of months, so you can apply these principles to your own location too. Keep safety in mind: don’t try to help Canadian movers if you’re not trained to do so You will notice in the articles linked to above, when 3M jumped in to help Canadian movers, it wasn’t by heavy lifting (that we know of). It was more on the side of offering refreshments, and being a friendly face on that day. Moving can be dangerous business: not just for humans, but also for the artifacts being moved. The last thing you want as a company is to have an employee injured on the job, or injuring others while moving. And also, you don’t want your company ruining people’s furniture or houses while moving. Our advice is to keep...
