Preparing to Move

Updated: April 10, 2017

Helpful hints to help you get the best value out of your moving budget

Your time is valuable; this could be why you’ve chosen to hire an Edmonton moving company for your upcoming move.  However, many customers want to take smaller steps to prepare for the mover, and cut down the cost of the move.  This is encouraged!

However, many customers decide the best way to cut moving costs is to move the boxes themselves. The result is fifteen loads in their car or van.  Not only will this take way too much of your valuable time, you are taking pieces that will help your experienced Edmonton movers square off or secure a large load.  Instead, do a few runs to the new house with odd-shaped items.  Odd-shaped items are items that cannot be secured in the load, or that are difficult to pack on top of. It is items like these that can result in the requirement of your Edmonton moving company to do an additional load.

Some odd-shaped items that you should consider taking yourself:

  • Lamps
  • Lawn Mowers
  • Snow Blowers
  • Bicycles
  • Patio furniture
  • Vases & Statues
  • Lawn Ornaments
  • Large power tools
  • Plants
  • Propane Tanks
  • Alcohol

What can’t go in your Edmonton Moving Truck?

Our insurance policy prevents us from taking flammable products.  This means your Edmonton moving company cannot take propane tanks, alcohol, some cleaning supplies and some fertilizers.  This also means that if you would like your movers to take your lawn mower, you will have to drain the gasoline prior to the move!
