If you’re moving with pets, it’s important to get them ready for your big move. To help ensure they feel as stress-free as possible, make sure you get your pet familiar with its cage or kennel before moving day. This will help them feel more comfortable and secure. Also be sure to make frequent stops for fresh water and walks if you’re moving long-distance.
Packing electronics can sometimes be a hassle. When packing your electronics, be sure to carefully pack them in Styrofoam peanuts if you don’t have the original box. Make sure to carefully label the exterior of the box to indicate contents are fragile and disconnect any wires or cables. Remember to pack remote controls with your electronics and back up your computer files in case of damage.
Did you know there are some items movers cannot transport? Items such as propane tanks, bleach, oxygen tanks, firearms, paint and aerosol cans all make the list. Carefully pack these items before moving day and determine how you are going to relocate your items. If you’re unsure what materials can or cannot be handled by your mover, contact the team at All Over Canada Vanlines for a complete list.
Being prepared to pack is one of the most important things you can do to get ready for your move. Make sure you purchase a good supply of professional moving materials, such as tissue paper, packing paper, masking tape, packing tape, scissors, box cutter, markers and high quality boxes of various sizes. Don’t forget to carefully label your boxes to help make unpacking easier.
