Selecting the right company for a move

Many Toronto residents have been taking advantage of the housing market in Canada and have decided to make the move to a new home. A recent blog post for the Toronto Star spells out some strategies for hiring the right Toronto professional movers and packers.

“Moving is stressful and the last thing you need is added worry about your moving company," Margarett Best, minister of consumer services, told the newspaper. "Make sure that the company you deal with is reputable so your move does not turn into a nightmare."

1. Get a written agreement with the mover: The contract with the movers should include what the mover will and will not be taking care of during the move, while also covering what will be done in case any possessions are damaged throughout the move.

2. Make sure movers write up a quote for furnishings: No mover wants to damage any of the possessions that people are moving, but sometimes it is inevitable. Homeowners should be sure to get a quote for all of their things before any moving is done.

3. Compile references from the mover: Before selecting the company that will be packing and moving things away, ask each company to provide a list of references and follow up on them.
