Whether you are a US resident moving back to the United States of America or a Canadian leaving on a permanent vacation to our neighbours to the south, there are some things you need to know before you move from Canada to the US. Since 911, the preparation for a cross border move has intensified but don't get too out of sorts because we have compiled a short list of things you must know.
This shouldn't even be a question. Staging your home will always yield a greater return on your investment. So the question is what is home staging and how do I stage my home. Well you can DIY or you can call a professional. Finding a professional is easy...just google Toronto Home Stagers or search for a certified staging professional.
Your home is sold and now it is time to face the reality that you have to find a mover. This can be a tough pill to swallow usually because you have had bad experiences in the past or maybe because you saw some goons get arrested in 2012 for scamming some Toronto movers.
There is a trend in Ontario. Toronto residents are moving west to towns like Oakville, Burlington and Kitchener, Cambridge, Waterloo.
Recently, Burlington was listed as one of the top 10 places in Canada for employment. As a Burlington Moving Company, we wanted to explore this great city and some of the reasons for this recent growth.
So many movers post generic tables outlining the number of boxes you should have on a given move. Yes it is nice to have some kind of idea when heading out to purchase/find your moving boxes but the education shouldn't necessarily be in quantities but in the different uses for the boxes required for a safe and proper pack. I want to add that if you are hiring any kind of professional mover, they should carry the necessities. Talk to your mover before going out to the store because many will offer delivery and can provide you with great advice on what to get and how to use them.
The hardest part about moving is packing. If you have moved before, you already know that. You spend weeks and weeks gathering the contents of your home all to have them moved in 6-8 hours. I am not here to tell you how to reduce your packing to one WONDERFUL day. I am here to explain how to pack your fragile items well because after all, most homeowners haven't the slightest clue.
