You should have a mover booked and ready approximately one month before your move. We understand that this cannot always happen, however the more in advance you have a truck booked, the less stress you will have in finding a truck that will suit your date requirements.
We advise that if items are left in the dressers, they are light items and not fragile. Keep in mind that the dresser may have to be put on end and shifted when it is moved. Also some dresser drawers will not hold the weight of clothing when traveling long distances. We advise that you decide whether the quality of the dresser will handle full drawers.
The moving crew will place floor runners on all floors to protect against dirt and damage.
All items in your home will be inventoried on loading day. Items are numbered by special stickers and brief descriptions and their condition are listed on the inventory sheet. On delivery, you will check off each number as the corresponding item enters your home.
Each driver will have his own method of division. Some methods of separation include using plywood walls, different coloured blankets, and, most commonly, different coloured and numbered inventory stickers.
No. Our drivers, although professional drivers, do not have the proper licensing to take passengers. Additionally, the truck will be making frequent stops along their route to pick up and deliver shipments.
Yes. Propane tanks, gas cans, aerosol products, paints, and liquids cannot be moved if they are not packed properly due to safety concerns. Hazardous materials are also not permitted in the van.
Plants do not travel well. We will take them at your request; however, we are not liable if they perish. Different climates will change the temperature in the back of the truck, which many adversely affect the plant. Plants cannot be watered before the move, as leakage is likely to occur. It is best to find other arrangements to make sure your plants arrive alive.
We will be able to transport liquor, if it is packed properly and above freezing temperatures.
Cleaners must be packed and labelled properly for transport. If a cleaner spills and ruins another item on the truck in your shipment, we will not be liable.

DELIVERY OF YOUR SHIPMENT
Depending on how far you are travelling, it is best to ask your sales representative for average transit times.
We do have warehouse locations where you may store your goods until you are ready to receive it. We can then arrange for storage and redelivery for you. Storage and redelivery will be an additional cost.
Anything the moving crew takes apart at origin will be reassembled at destination. Basic furnishings are included in the cost of the estimate, however there are some items that may incur a small fee to disassemble and reassemble.
UNDERSTANDING THE CHARGES
Our pricing is based on the items that are moved. Every load will depend on the locations of pick up and destination. Please consult a sales representative for a more accurate estimate.
Consultants guarantee their estimates when they have all the necessary information to do so. For this reason, and to avoid complications at a later date, please be sure to include everything that is to be moved. Also check the cost of a shuttle service if you location is difficult to reach.
If your employer is to be billed for the move, make arrangements well in advance for fewer complications upon delivery. If you are responsible, we accept cash, bank guaranteed cheques, bank transfers and also credit card payments.
Services such as a shuttle, packing, appliance servicing, unpacking, or stair carries (required due to your request or building regulations) may result in additional charges.
Shuttle service occurs when a smaller vehicle is used to haul goods to a location that is not accessible to large moving trailers.
