Moving Tips

So you have decided to move, what now? What should you pack first, what last? How to wrap and pack everything so that it wouldn’t break or scratch? Which items should go on top of the box, which on the bottom? Moving and packing could be very stressful, if not done by professionals. Elite GTA Movers Inc. provides a team of professional packers, who will quickly and efficiently eliminate the packing stress for you. Furthermore, they will carefully load everything in the truck, secure it and deliver to the location. The best, fastest and most stress-free option!

However, if you decide to pack yourself here are a few recommended tips:

    • First you need supplies to pack; they are often available at different household or hardware stores around the GTA, although you can order them with us for a lot cheaper and with less hassle. We offer all the moving supplies you can think of, click here to view them.
    • We suggest you plan to pack several weeks before the move, this will not only give you adequate amount of time, but also would eliminate any stress.
    • Start by packing an overnight bag with all of your essentials, as most likely you will be too tired to unpack your things once the move is completed. So, you’ll want your essentials to be close by and within easy access. This includes a change of clothes, in case you have to be at work the next day and your toiletries. It’s also a great way to transport a laptop, and important documents.

    • Pack the items you will require FIRST in a clear plastic bin.
  •  
    • Plastic bins can be rented and provided Elite GTA Movers, ask our reps for more details. Items you require first include things such as a box cutter, power strips, phone chargers, toilet paper, paper towels, trash bags, eating utensils, select cookware, tools, etc. The clear bin allows you to see inside; it also separates itself from the myriad of cardboard boxes
  •  
    • Wrap your breakables or fragile items (dishes, glasses, etc.) in bubble wrap or clothes.
  •  
    • Bubble wrap is a great tool for wrapping fragile items in order to protect them from breaking, it can be purchased from us for an affordable price. We suggest that you pack plates in a vertical position (making them less likely to break) and label the box “this way up”.
  •  
    • Label and identify what is inside the boxes, in addition label whether contents are fragile and what room they should go to in your new place. Color coding often works best for labeling which room boxes are going to.
  •  
    • Empty your dressers and drawers.
  •  
    • When taking anything apart, make sure you label the bolts and screws where they go back, and put them in zip-lock bags.
  •  
    • If you have children, pack a bag of their favourite toys, books, and snack. Take it with you in your car, and take it to your new location. This way kids would have something to do, and won’t be under stress due to the move. Everyone will be happy!
