Glad you are searching for professional moving help in Toronto before your house renovation. Many of us with we lived in bigger, more spacious houses, but the truth is the real estate market has skyrocketed in the past years. This means not all of us afford to move into their dream house while they are in their 30s or 40s. Some of us will probably never accomplish that dream, so what can we do? Renovating an old house is probably the best solution. If you already have a house you’ve been living in for a few good years now, consider renovating it to give it a fresh start! Or you can just buy an old house and invest a little into fixing it and making it more modern. And while at it, here is where we believe you should seek for moving help in Toronto. This is moving before a house renovation 101, from the perspective of professional Toronto movers.
Professionals instead of DIYs
Even if you might be tempted to save some money in the process, please do yourself a huge favour and hire professionals. And we don’t only mean it when it comes to moving help in Toronto, but we mean with EVERYTHING. With a few exceptions that are details rather than the big job, you should step aside and let the pros do their work. Wall fixing, furniture restoring, plumbing, electric system – everything should be put into their hands. Sure, you could find all the materials you need at the store and watch a few YouTube video tutorials, but are you ready for the consequences? It might be that you accidentally break a pipe or ruin the walls completely. Better hire someone who’s really good at it and doesn’t really have many chances of destroying anything. You can restore that book shelf or paint the balcony yourself, if you feel like leaving your mark. But for the big things, hire someone who’s good at it. As professional movers, we always see people who are not hiring moving help in Toronto and instead decide to DIY. Most of the times, they regret it later and end up calling us anyway. So why waste time and resources when you could do things right in the first place? Be smart. This is your house, after all.
Buy the right tools and supplies
This is another area where you shouldn’t be cheap. The professionals you hire will most probably request you buy supplies – and sometimes some tools, as well. Don’t go for the cheaper options! Invest a little in the floors, walls, paint, and decoration! Not to even mention how important is to have proper materials in your electric and plumbing system. On the long run, these will last longer and will give you less of a hassle later. And as for the moving help in Toronto, help yourself, as well, by buying some heavy-duty supplies. You wouldn’t want your cardboard boxes to give up under the weight of the items they carry, right? Invest a few extra dollars in better supplies! At Let’s Get Moving and in the supply shops of many other movers in Toronto, you can find premium quality moving supplies at affordable costs. They will last longer and you can reuse them at least once again after the move is completed, if you store them properly. You can also give them to a friend or family who will need moving help in Toronto anytime in the near future. If the supplies are good, they can be reused without a worry. And the same goes for the building and restoring supplies.
Put things into storage
While your house is undergoing renovations, you will find yourself having many objects standing in your way. Instead of bothering with transporting them from a room to another, just put them into a storage unit! When booking professionals for moving help in Toronto, ask about storage facilities, as well! At Let’s Get Moving, we have climate-controlled storage units that are permanently kept under video surveillance. And the good part is they are large enough to fit furniture, boxes, and many more. Oh, right, we forgot about the best part. They are super cheap and you can rent them on a weekly basis. This way, you will not have to pay for a full month if you won’t use it for so long. This will just make things easier for your financial-wise, too. So for as long as you need, put the items that are not essential to you in storage. Life gets much easier if the workers you hired can actually move around the house without doing a limbo between boxes and without worrying they might break something. Just remember to keep a suitcase of essentials around, because you will surely need those things.
