How Full Service Movers Can Help Reduce Your Moving Anxiety

The day you realize you’re going to move is an exciting one. Whether you’re getting a foot on the property ladder or simply moving into a new rental, it took a lot to get where you are now. After hours spent scrolling through listings, appearing at open houses, and getting your paperwork together, all your hard work has paid off. You have a new place to call home. Congratulations!

Now that you’ve cleared the first hurdle, it’s onto the next, slightly more challenging one: getting there. You need to get your belongings (and your family) from point A to B under a time crunch. 

At this point, your excitement may have curdled into worry as the pre-moving jitters set in. If moving makes your palm sweat, you wouldn’t be alone. According to a recent survey conducted by marketing research firm OnePoll, 64 percent of people list moving as the most stressful thing they’ve done. Not even divorce or starting a family could top it!

Here at Metropolitan Movers, we are under no illusion that what we do for our bread and butter as a professional moving company is incredibly stressful for the average person. Moving can be an emotionally charged and physically taxing task that brings upheaval in your lives. 

That’s why we get so much satisfaction out of providing our award-winning home moving services. Our home to home moving specialists de-stress your move by providing all the support you need during this anxious time. 

Today, we’ll give you a quick overview of our full service home moving assistance to show why we’re Canada’s fastest-growing moving company. 

Packing Supplies

For many Canadians preparing to move, a trip to the liquor store and other retail outlets is a must. On recycling day, these stores have plenty of cardboard boxes you can swoop up for packing. But should you? 

When you’re picking over used boxes, you don’t get to choose the size that you need, so you might end up with boxes that don’t fit your belongings. Making do with what you have, you could end up putting your belongings in danger. 

These boxes also lose their structural integrity after they’ve been broken down for pick-up, so there’s a chance they could collapse and spill your fragile belongings on the big day.

Preparing your items for a move with proper packing supplies will ensure you neatly sidestep these headaches, so rather than relying on used supplies, get in touch with us. If you need boxes or packing supplies, we’re happy to supply you with anything you need, including specialized containers, wardrobe boxes, mattress covers, bubble wrap, and more. Check out our Online Moving Store to see our new line of eco-friendly moving supplies. We only use the best boxes and packing supplies we know will stand up to the moving process.

Packing 

Moving makes you realize just how much stuff you own. If you feel overwhelmed, we recommend going through your things to remove any unnecessary items from your home. Not only will this decrease how many things you’ll have to move, but it’s also an opportunity to earn a few extra bucks if you have any items worth selling. 

Nevertheless, packing can still be a big job even after you’ve done a thorough de-cluttering. If you don’t have the time, patience, or ability to deal with it, our packing specialists are here to help you in any way they can. 

Our professional packing services are available on a sliding scale, so you can focus our specialists’ attention exactly where you need them most.

  • Fragile and Unique Packing: Delicate, priceless, and expensive items are our specialty. We have the skills and packing supplies necessary to ensure these important belongings arrive safely.
