What is the difference between moving as a student and moving as a family man?
Being an adult is recognizing your responsibilities. Being an adult and having a large family is to be responsible for each family member. Moving home with a big family requires a lot of planning and preparation:
- Get the kids ready for the upcoming change. Plan a visit to your new home before moving day to show your kids around; they tend to be full of curiosity and wonder.
Moving home could be an exciting adventure for the whole family! Let the kids help! If they are old enough to gather the toys all over the house, pack books and DVDs – ask to do it.
- You are making sure that your pets are taken care of. Decide how you are going to carry your pets. Prepare all necessary documents, food, and significant essentials.
- Start packing as early as possible to avoid the rush. Or you can call your movers and ask for professional packing services.
- Make sure everyone’s safe. Moving includes many dangers related to heavy furniture, strangers in the house, hazardous items, and so on. If you are not sure that you can keep an eye on the child, it is better to arrange for a babysitter to come.
It’s different when you’re a student! Moving alone will be much easier, faster, and less expensive. Everything you need is to look after yourself and prepare for this crucial step.
How to move your car or other vehicles from Vancouver to Montreal?
One of the best ways to move your car to a new city is to drive it yourself. If you’re moving a short distance, then I recommend choosing this route. But for a long-distance trail, the best way is to load your car onto the truck along with your furniture and other household items.
How to prepare your car for shipment?
Preparing your vehicle for a shipping process is very important if you want your car to arrive as expected.
- Wash your car.
With a clean car, you’ll be able to see any possible damage caused by the shipping process after it arrives at your new home. Besides, dirt and dust can pollute other belongings inside the truck.
- Disable the alarm.
To not cause inconvenience to the driver during the road, it is better to turn off all possible alarm systems.
- Leave as little fuel in the tank as possible.
A full tank increases the weight of your vehicle and also can lead to danger.
- Check for leaks or any damages.
If your car has some, get it repaired before moving day.
- Lock the car.
It seems obvious, but to reduce the risks of theft, lock your car.
I will explain to you how to ensure your load before moving.
No matter how the movers try to protect your belongings during transportation, occasional damages like scratches and dents may occur. For such cases exists the damage or loss claim policy. I advise you to read it attentively before the move.
- Basic liability coverage. As mandated by the Department of Transportation, your moving company should offer the $0.60 per pound waiver and release damages or losses. The basic liability coverage is extended at no additional cost.
- Premium liability coverage. When you file a claim, you’ll be compensated $2 per pound per item. The cost of premium liability coverage is 3% of the total weight of your load.
- Valuation Coverage. Although the standard coverage is $0.60 per lb., when a damage claim is accepted and processed, typically, our company will have the damaged furniture piece repaired by a professional furniture repair company we contract. If an item cannot be repaired or is lost, a replacement piece can be purchased. It is a coverage plan for up to $30.000. From what I know, the Valuation Coverage applies only to items packed by the movers.
Necessary: Premium and Valuation Coverage plans don’t apply to antique items (over 50 years old). Contact your moving agents to inquire about the cost of this coverage plan.
