A successful moving company in Montreal

Moving is an important stage in a person’s life. Whatever your projects, you must be fully prepared if you want your moving day to be a success. Even if you hire an excellent Montreal moving company, being well organized is essential.


Moving made easy

To make your move a successful one, Déménagement C.A. offers you the following tips:

Tip #1: Be ready for the arrival of the movers

Moving to Montreal? Then your best bet is to hire Montreal movers! However, whether you choose to hire a moving company from Montreal or elsewhere, make sure you’re ready when they arrive. There’s really nothing worse than to make them wait around while you hurry to finish packing your personal effects.

Tip #2: Hire the right movers

Even if you’re surrounded by family members and friends who will help you move, you should realize that nothing can replace the expertise of a Montreal moving business. Professional Montreal movers will know how to move your furniture and appliances efficiently and in a timely manner. But, you should make sure you hire the right moving company. There are many movers in Montreal. So, get the all the background information you need before recruiting your movers!

Tip #3: Exploit the talents of people in your entourage

During a move, it’s normal for family and friends to lend a hand. However, you must remember to organize this ad hoc work crew. What’s important is to make sure that your movers will be able to focus on their job. In cities such as Montreal for example, space is restricted so you must remain organized to complete the mission! You do this by assigning specific tasks to each person lending a hand in order to avoid people being scattered all over the place or wasting their time.

Tip #4: Provide correct information to your movers

You can hire the best movers in Montreal, but without the full information on your new residence, they will find it difficult to do their work efficiently. That’s why it’s important to provide to your moving company, whether it is located in Montreal or another region, the complete information on the destination. This includes the address and the layout of the place (staircase, elevator, etc.).

Tip #5: Clean the place before leaving

Many people are under the impression that a Montreal moving company, for example, will clean the place once the furniture and appliances are loaded into the truck. This is a false perception! In fact, a moving company, whether from Montreal or another city, has no mandate to clean the house in question. It’s up to you to pick up a broom and a cloth and to ensure that the premises are clean enough for the next inhabitants. Movers from Montreal or elsewhere are not hired to perform this task.

5 things not to forget when moving

That’s it! You’ve made the decision to move. Going to Laval? Elsewhere? Either way, it’s crucial for you to be well prepared. It happens all too often that moving companies (whether in Laval or the surrounding area) have to deal with customers who wait until the last minute to finish their moving preparations. As a result, they end up stressed, often forgetting several important things, and suffering throughout a never-ending ordeal.

Worry-free move

During our long years of experience at Déménagement C. A., we’ve seen many situations where the lack of planning was painfully obvious. So, this is why we are offering you today a short list of things to not forget before moving.

Firstly, do a major house cleaning before the arrival of your movers!

Moving to or from Laval? Perfect! Now’s the time to get rid of all the objects, furniture and other accessories that you no longer use! Whatever your destination, look at it as a brand new start! And remember, nothing beats the sensation of travelling light. Also, carrying out a thorough house cleaning will save you money! That’s right: a moving company (from Laval or elsewhere) will charge much less for a smaller quantity of boxes.

Secondly, don’t forget to make your address changes!

Of course, it’s important to give your new address to your movers (whether in Laval or another city) on the day of your move. However, it’s also important to make all your address changes before the big day. This includes your bank, your telephone company, your car dealer, etc. It’s essential to make this transfer! So, in addition to letting your moving company in Laval (or elsewhere) know you new address… you must also inform all the suppliers that you deal with on a daily basis.

Thirdly, retrieve all your hidden objects!

You’ve hidden a spare set of keys somewhere? Your child has buried various “treasures” in the garden? Remember to retrieve them before the movers arrive, whether they’re from Laval or elsewhere. Keep in mind that, once your moving company is on site, whether you’re in Laval or elsewhere, this is not the time to make them wait while you’re off on a treasure hunt!

Fourthly, choose the right moving company!

There are several moving companies in Laval. Dozens and dozens in fact! But, finding the right one isn’t that easy, even though this can make all the difference in your move. Finding a good moving company, in Laval or elsewhere, requires research. So, go ahead and choose carefully!

Fifthly, make arrangements for the moving of your pets!

Are you the proud owner of a dog, a cat, or a rare species of reptile? Great… but don’t forget to plan for moving your pet. Even if Laval moving companies are sometimes more flexible than moving companies from outside Laval, they will very rarely accept to move your pets. In fact, few movers, even in Laval, will accept this kind of load. So don’t forget to prepare for this eventuality in order to not be caught short on moving day.

Move your furniture safely

Moving, whether to Montreal or elsewhere, is an ambitious project. It’s important to get in touch with the right movers, to properly plan the unfolding of the day, to ask people in our entourage to lend a hand, etc.

Moving safety tips

Among the many aspects to be taken into account, moving the furniture is one of the most important ones. People go to great lengths to avoid breaking, damaging or scratching their furniture during the move.

However, whether you’re in Montreal or another city, you should know that when it comes to moving, there are several precautions to take for successfully moving furniture without danger. We have listed some of these below.

Tip #1: Avoid dealing with apprentice movers!

Moving is a business. A profession that one learns over many moves, whether you’re in the city (for example in Montreal), in the region, or even in the countryside! Even though you may have the best of intentions, you should realize that there are many aspects about moving that you know nothing about.

To be an efficient mover, you need to know how to warm up, how to move, how use your strength, etc. This will help you avoid injuring your feet, your back, your ankles, etc.

Therefore, if you want to move by yourself, make sure at least to enlist the help of a professional mover or someone with basic knowledge of moving. Don’t just call your uncle or your muscle-bound cousin. It’s much wiser to seek guidance from a professional mover. It is an investment that will not only save you money but, more importantly, will prevent unnecessary injuries.

Tip #2: Make sure you have the right tools!

To move your furniture in a safe and secure manner, it pays to equip yourself with the right tools. Although some might prove to be excessive, other tools are essential.

We recommend that you include the following tools on your list:

  • Complete range of screwdrivers
  • Moving harnesses and belts
  • Moving cart
  • Adhesive tape
  • Packing material

Moving furniture safely cannot be done without adequate equipment. So, make sure you have the right tools before you start.

Tip #3: Do not move your furniture alone

Moving furniture can be a very demanding physical exercise. Some furniture, such as a piano or a cabinet, requires particular attention. As mentioned above, you have to know how to use your strength to avoid injury.

This is why professional movers work as a team to carry out the different stages of a move successfully. Together, the two of them are able to distribute the effort required and thus achieve better results. So, if you choose to undertake to move your furniture yourself, it is recommended, at the very least, that two of you do the job. Ideally, your work partner will be an experienced mover who knows the ropes!

Tip #4: Make sure there is room to circulate freely

For a successful move, you need the necessary room to be able to move all the furniture and the boxes without being impeded. For this reason you must make sure that there is ample room for the movers to circulate freely while carrying the furniture.

Although this may seem like an obvious piece of advice, it remains no less fundamental. During a move, in the heat of the action, it is the kind of detail that often gets forgotten and causes damage that could have been avoided.

Therefore, whether it’s the corridor, the doorways, or stairs (there are many exterior stairways in Montreal), make sure you keep the path unobstructed and free.

Tip #5: Protect your furniture adequately

During a move, many pieces of furniture are at risk of being damaged during transport. It could be a scratch, a notch, a broken piece of wood, etc. Even if you take very special care, no one is immune from making a mistake at one time or another.
This is why it is recommended to properly protect your furniture, even before you begin the actual move. Here are a few tricks to maximize their protection:

  • Wrap your most fragile furniture in plastic bubble wrap
  • Choose reinforced boxes (they minimize the risk of shock)
  • Cover your furniture with a blanket during the entire transport
  • Disassemble sectional furniture to simplify moving them

Thinking of moving to Montreal or in the surrounding area soon? Wouldn’t you just love to get all the professional help and advice you need for a safe and efficient move? Or would you rather risk facing a whole bunch of problems you could have avoided?

Choosing a mover in Laval

The next time you’re planning a move, whether in Laval or elsewhere, it’s important to select the best mover you can to accompany you in this important project. There are many companies to choose from, but not all offer the same level of help and service.

Finding the right moving company

In order to guide you, here are a few tips that can help make your move smooth and stress free.

Tip #1: Seek information on moving companies from your entourage

Ask people you know for any information they may have on movers. Regardless of your original neighborhood and the one to which you are moving, chances are that someone in your entourage can give you good advice.

Regardless of where you live, you’re certainly not the first in the neighborhood to move. That’s why it’s important to find out which moving companies to consider before you start. Moving to Laval? Then, check with family members or friends who have retained the services of movers in Laval. This will give you an idea about:

  • The quality of customer service
  • The price/quality ratio
  • The moving company’s background
  • Etc.

Tip #2: Check the profile of the mover on the Internet

Before you decide on a moving company, make sure that the latter has a good reputation online. And we don’t mean to only read its advertising and promotions. You will want to check out the Jugements.qc.ca (regarding small claims court cases). You can also do a search on the Office de la protection du consommateur website and see if the mover you are considering has been the subject of complaints by previous customers.

Whether you’re planning to move to Laval or elsewhere in Quebec, these are kinds of details that you cannot afford to ignore.

Tip #3: Make sure you get a quote from your mover

Several misinformed people make the mistake of not formalizing their agreement on paper before embarking on their move. This is unfortunate, because you have very little recourse if things go wrong with the mover that you have selected. That’s why it is necessary to ensure, before finalizing your choice of a mover, that essential elements are written down in a contract that is duly signed. Here are a few items you don’t want to forget:

  • First and last name of the contact person with which you have concluded the agreement
  • Full contact details of the company
  • Precise assessment of the number of boxes and furniture to move
  • Hourly rate (or the total amount) requested by the movers
  • Payment options accepted by the movers
  • Precise date of your move
  • Number of hours required for the entire move (mover’s evaluation)

Tip #4: Be certain that your mover is insured

To be certain that you have selected the correct mover, make sure that the latter has a good insurance. To do this, do not hesitate to ask him specific questions that will allow you to learn more about the subject.

For example:

Find out the name of the insurance company as well as on the number of his policy.
Ask him what are the provisions that he intends to take if your furniture or personal effects are damaged due to breakage, theft, loss, etc. It is important to validate these details before signing the contract with him.

If you are not satisfied with some of the mover’s answers, do not hesitate to ask additional questions. You have the right to know this information.

Tip #5: In the case of a long-distance move, make sure that your mover can get you there

Not all moving companies have the necessary infrastructure to help you move from one city to another (for example, from Laval to Joliette). That’s why you must confirm this with your mover before you initiate the process.

Using the same example of a move from Laval to Joliette, your mover should provide you with a quote in which the evaluation is based on the weight and volume of your possessions.

Also, make sure that the mover in question has the necessary experience to carry out a long distance move. You can take our word on this: You do not want to fall into the hands of a mover who does not know his business to perfection.
