Benefits of a Cross Canada Moving Company

By: Heather @ 3:11 pm

When moving across Canada, many families try to save a few dollars on their move by packing, organizing and transporting all their belongings themselves. This can sometimes lead to a lengthy process that no one enjoys, including such risks as running an inaccurate estimate of fuel costs, being injured when packing and loading, as well as the potential for bad weather or mechanical failure.

The biggest benefits of hiring a cross Canada moving company includes eliminating the risk of injury, ensuring that all fragile and awkward shaped valuables arrive intact and unscathed, and eliminating all delays from the random chaos of moving across the country. Below are 4 reasons why it is essential that you hire a professional cross Canada moving company to facilitate your move.

Stay Out of the Hospital, Leave it to the Professionals:

Moving appliances and heavy furniture incorrectly can be hazardous to your health. Moving a heavy object safely without injury takes skill, patience, and proper technique. For the simple reason of keeping you and your friends and family safe, hire a professional cross Canada moving company who are experienced in this type of heavy lifting, guaranteeing neither you or your items get damaged during the process.

Save Yourself the Stress:

So you rented a truck, asked your kids, friends or neighbours to help move and managed to get them to pack everything safely. Everything is loaded and ready to go. You even navigate terrible weather and make it out safely. The only downside? You’ve made it only 1/4 of the way to your destination, and you already spent your entire fuel budget.

Another benefit of hiring a cross Canada moving company is leaving the logistics to cross country experts. In addition to accurately calculating fuel costs, quality movers like Westmount Movers offer reliable transit even in poor weather conditions. Our experienced drivers know how to navigate Canada’s roads and highways, and are trained in safe driving techniques for all road conditions. Driving a truck is not the same as driving a car – leave it to our experienced long distance movers.

Expert Transit of Delicate Items:

It can be tough to figure out how you will move that league style pool table or your grandmother’s baby grand piano. Transporting such precious and fragile cargo is a job best left to a cross Canada moving company. While these obvious examples come to mind, there are even greater transportation challenges such as moving chandeliers and expensive artwork. “Oops, it got bumped,” is simply unacceptable when transporting irreplaceable investments, art, and family heirlooms – or any item at all!

All That’s Left for You to Worry About:

By hiring a cross Canada moving company, all you are left to worry about is packing up the family, the pets, and personal items you’d like to keep with you. Make sure you keep the following items handy while you wait for the rest of your items to arrive at your new destination:

  • A week’s change of clothes for all family members
  • Toiletries
  • Medications
  • Entertainment— books, videos, gaming systems, etc.
  • Adequate accommodations for all animals such as litter pans, appropriate sized dog and cat kennels, and easy to carry containers for little critters.
