Q: How far in advance should I schedule my move?
A: Burnaby Movers recommend scheduling your move as far in advance as you can. The farther out you can plan your move, the greater the availability you will have in choosing a date and time that is convenient for you. A general rule of thumb is to contact us no later than two weeks in advance of your desired move date. We realize advance planning is not always possible, and do our best to accommodate last minute customers as well.
Q: What day/date is best for a move?
A: Because complex events, such as a home closure or completion of construction, can be delayed due to unforeseen circumstances, Burnaby Movers don’t recommend scheduling your move for the same day. Save yourself the stress of rescheduling and plan your move date for several days after your closing date.
Demand for moving services is generally at its lowest during the middle of the month and, in particular, the middle of the week If your schedule allows for a move on one of these days, Movers often offer their most competitive rates during those times.
Q: I want to do some packing and moving before the movers arrive. What areas would be most helpful?
A: Focus on packing, instead of moving. Smaller items and moving boxes can be moved very quickly by professional movers. Don’t spend time trying to move these items yourself. Rather, focus on packing boxes, so when Burnaby Movers arrive, you are 100% ready. For more information on packing and packing supplies check out our Pack like the Pros video series.
Q: What can I do to ensure that my belongings end up in the correct room during the move?
A: Choose a simple labeling system (i.e. MBR for Master Bedroom) and make sure that all of your boxes are clearly marked. Boxes should be labeled on the top and 3 sides. Burnaby Movers will work closely with you at the destination to make sure everything ends up where you want it.
Q: Do I need to empty out my filing cabinets?
A: When the cabinets are made of metal or plastic, 2-drawer filing cabinets can be left full. The top two drawers of a 4-drawer cabinet need to be emptied. All lateral file cabinets need to be completely emptied. All drawers need to be emptied in wooden cabinets.
Q: Can I leave clothing in my dresser drawers?
A: It is generally fine to leave your clothing in your dresser drawers during the move. Be sure to remove anything from the drawers than may roll around or shift during transport, as this can cause damage. If the dresser is particularly large (a triple dresser or part of a large armoire), it is best to at least partially empty it.
Q: What do I need to do to prepare my appliances for the move?
A: You should make certain that your dishwasher, microwave, refrigerator, washing machine, and dryer are empty. Additionally, movers are not trained electricians or plumbers – you need to arrange for the appropriate professional to disconnect your washer, lighting/chandeliers, and refrigerator from any electric and/or water connection.
Q: Will you move my plants?
A: Such items can be moved on local moves if properly packed/prepared, but Burnaby Movers can not guarantee the safe transport of live plants, which can be traumatized by motion or temperature extremes inside the moving truck. We can not transport live plants on long distance moves.
Q: Are there any items that you can not move?
A: Burnaby Movers, as well as all Licensed Movers, will not move hazardous or combustible items such as propane tanks, firearms, paint, and aerosols, as the temperature in the truck could cause these items to explode or ignite.
