Hiring a competent moving company is the easiest way to relieve most of the stress that comes with moving. As a person planning to move, it is essential you do adequate research before selecting which moving company to use. It is also best to engage a company that is part of a reputable certified mover program.
What to Look for in a Moving Company
- You should check for a track record of legitimate and satisfactory moving service, professionalism and necessary moving equipment.
- Make sure the moving company has the required mover’s insurance to provide coverage against damage or loss of property.
- Ascertain the company has the proper certification from relevant associations.
- Check reviews online. Such reviews help to provide foreknowledge against possible hitches.
- The total cost of the moving service should be clearly stated, so you do not get burdened with hidden charges.
Here are a few things that professional movers do better than cheap amateur companies, and why professional movers help you in the long run.
Professional movers know how to handle fragile belongings
Fragile items aren’t just nice things that can break easily, chances are they are family heirlooms that you can’t put a price on. Nobody wants to get to the other end of their moving journey to find that their favourite lamp or family’s fine china has been damaged. A professional moving company will handle these with delicate care. From careful wrapping in brown paper, to adding extra moving pads for a protective bubble in the trailer, Montreal Movers knows how to keep your things safe.
We know how to pack the right way
Packing is one part art and one part science. It isn’t something that anyone can be taught how to do quickly. Only seasoned veterans really understand the task of packing a box and then packing those boxes onto a trailer. Doing it right is the difference between keeping your things safe, and being disappointed on the other end. Not only that, but we help organize things for you the right way so things go seamlessly on the other side.
Respect for your home
Whether leaving your old place or moving into your new one, the last thing you need is a moving team that leaves a mark on your home. A cheap moving company will damage your walls, leave tire tracks from handcarts on your floors and muddy footprints on your carpet. A professional team knows how to handle both your items and your home with delicate care.
Most people can pick up a piece of furniture, pack a box full of clothes, or throw things onto a truck. The difference with a professional company is that they have the best in the business, and are trusted to get the job done right. Movers need to be trusted in your home and with your valuables, as well as trusted to get them to the other side in once piece, so it’s easy for less-than-stellar agencies to get a bad reputation quickly.
It’s important that you know the difference between movers and a professional moving company, and that going with the cheapest option isn’t always the best.
Moving furniture isn’t the first thing that comes to mind when you think about dressing well for work, but this is something that we take seriously. You shouldn’t expect your movers to show up in a three-piece suit, but you should expect them to look groomed, professional, and well kept. Montreal Movers makes sure that its workers always look the part.
Trust us, you don’t want to hire a moving company and have them show up with old and broken equipment. Dollies, hand trucks, and other moving accessories need to be top-notch and ready to handle a long day’s work. At Montreal Movers, we keep everything up to date and make sure our team arrives on-site with the best stuff in the business.
A plan for the home
A cheap moving company is going to go in and start taking things out or start throwing things anywhere inside off of the truck. A great moving company will have a plan that maximizes convenience for both the client and the workers. That means taking care of certain rooms first, taking out the heavy furniture to use as a base, and packing up all books before moving to the clothes and so on. A plan will help everything go smoothly on both ends.
With a bargain basement team of movers, you get bargain basement service. With professionals, you get the highest level of service in the industry. It is important to know the difference between movers and a professional moving company because if you choose the wrong one, you could regret it.

We keep your things safe during a move
One of the things that we take pride in here at Montreal Movers is our ability to keep all of your furniture and belongings as safe as can be during your move. A lot of companies are going to try to get in and out as fast as possible, increasing the likelihood of damage. We do everything we can to ensure that everything arrives at your new home in the same condition that it left your old one. Here are just a few of the ways we keep your things safe when moving you into Montreal.
When moving a couch, chair, or other expensive pieces of furniture, many people think that a pad here or there is enough since it won’t really be touching anything that can damage it on the ride. However, an experienced mover knows that there are many perils for these kinds of pieces while in transit. Boxes, other sharp ends of furniture, dust in the trailer, and rails at the new home are just a few of the things that can damage a piece of furniture. We wrap everything carefully, and then put tight plastic wrap known as shrink wrap around the object to ensure that everything stays in place and that there is an extra layer of protection against the outside world.
2) Clean moving pads
The number one safety precaution of all moving companies is the pad. It is sort of like the duct tape of the moving truck. It can be wrapped around anything to protect against possible damage. Not only do we use new, clean pads that ensure your furniture doesn’t get dirty, we also wrap it properly, and double up when we need to. That way it won’t fall off while being moved. If it slips off during the ride, then chances are something is going to knock into it and cause some kind of problems.
3) Pads on the floor
One aspect that is often overlooked by companies is keeping your new home in good condition. You’ve just spent a lot of time and money on it, and it would be a shame for it to be damaged by the movers. This also goes for your floor. We are going to have hand carts, boots, and boxes all over the place, so the chances of something getting scratched are high if you don’t take precautions. We pad the entryway floors to make sure the wheels don’t cause any damage, and pad the hallways and stairs so our boots don’t scuff anything up. When we leave, your house will look as good as it did before we came.
Here at Montreal Movers, we understand just how hectic the moving process can be. The last thing you should be worrying about is if your things are going to get to their destination safely. We take all of the necessary precautions, and even a few more, to ensure that your belonging arrive just the way they left. These are just a few of the ways we keep your thing safe. If you have any more questions, please contact us on the web to speak to one of our representatives.
We Are Masters of International Moving
Moving locally can be stressful and time-consuming. Imagine how it would then be to move to another city let alone another country?
International moves are different from domestic ones, mainly in that they require more effort, preparation, awareness, budgeting, and time. The biggest mistake anyone can make is not hiring international moving experts to help them complete their relocation. There is a long list of things that can go wrong if you decide and tackle an international move on your own.
Things are much more complicated than they might appear when it comes to an international move. While you yourself may arrive at your destination by taking a relatively short trip by plane or train, bear in mind that your belongings cannot all be packed into your suitcase or into the trunk of your car. Your belongings and goods will require organization, appropriate packing and packaging and correct document work for customs among many other things. Many people also forget one important detail: shipping and transferring items internationally typically takes longer. The person moving should always strive to schedule the move earlier on so that their possessions arrive around the same time they have started to settle down in their new location.
Montreal Movers provides local and long-distance moving services for residential customers and companies in both the private and public sectors. We are involved in all stages of the move beginning from the initial consultation and survey, through to planning stages, management and the actual relocation. Our team always strives to offer you professional and reliable advice.
Our services include:
- Moving management and space planning.
- Long term and short term storage solutions.
- Moves in various sectors including offices, libraries, laboratories, hospitals.
- Furniture reconfiguration – dismantling and reassembly.
- Filing, transfer and archive management.

- Supply of packing materials, crates, boxes, bags, and labels.
