Let’s be honest here, moving often leaves you with an empty pocket. Even if planned it in advance and you even saved money for the big day, unexpected costs still come out of nowhere and add up to the inevitable stress. Luckily, you can save money by hiring cheap professional moving companies from Toronto. Yes, you read that right, the words “cheap” and “professional” were both in the same sentence – and both used with their own meaning. Cheap does not necessarily imply a lack of professionalism and vice-versa. There are a few tips and tricks that can help you get professional moving services for cheap Toronto movers and packers, and we summed them up for you right here. Read this article to find out more!
Find the best professional movers in Toronto
…and make sure they are affordable, too. Hiring a professional moving company is cheaper than moving with the help of friends, so always go for this option. Professional movers and packers who are properly skilled and trained can end up saving you money and time. This, of course, if you hire a reputable moving company that will not try to scam you into paying more money than necessary. Hiring professionals to manage your move will help keep your belongings intact and will save you the hassle of doing the supply shopping and the moving by yourself. You can do something else in the meantime, resting assured that the professional Toronto movers you chose can take care of the moving-related aspects. Finding the best cheap movers in Toronto is not as hard as you might think. The internet can help you with this, just search for them and make sure to check out the reviews customers left, as well.
Do some background research
If you already found the professional movers that will handle your Toronto move, make sure you do some brief background check before calling them to book. No worries, reviews will tell you about the billing strategies of moving companies, in case there are any hidden aspects. If the estimate the company gives you is too good to be true, make sure to read the contract / the agreement carefully. It might be that the moving company is indeed very cheap, in which case you drew the jackpot. But it can also be that they are practicing hidden costs that you will only find out about once it’s too late. Ask about all these and check to see what their previous customers have to say! Truly professional moving companies will not try to scam you or trick you with cheap services, so choose carefully. At Let’s Get Moving, for example, we charge per hour and the rate is fully-inclusive. This way, we ensure full transparency of the moving process and its costs.
Timing is everything
You probably heard this a million times. When talking about how cheap or how expensive a move can get, timing is everything. Even if you already have decided on the professional Toronto movers you are going to hire, the cost of your move might still differ. Moving on a weekend, for example, is not the same as moving on a Wednesday, just like how moving on the 24th of December is not the same as moving in mid August. Needless to say, moving on holidays might not be very good for your budget. Many professional movers and packers in Toronto offer special discounts on some occasions. At Let’s Get Moving, those occasions are monthly, on the weekdays from the 4th to the 26th. That is when customers can enjoy significant discounts at their hourly rates. The bigger your home, the bigger the savings! Just imagine how much money you would save if you got a 15% discount on the hourly rate for a 5-bedroom house!
Hire professional packers
Although you might not be very comfortable having strangers packing your clothes, this solution could really save you lots of money! Just picture this: you go out and buy 40 moving boxes, lots of tape, moving blankets, shrink wrap, and moving bins. You pack everything nicely, but what do you do with them after you complete the move? What do you do with the remaining moving supplies and what about all the money you spent on those? Where do you put everything for the following few years, before you move again? Luckily, when you hire professional Toronto packers, this problem is not on your list anymore. Your movers and packers will only use what they need, and they will bring their own supplies with them. They can finish any packing job quicker than you can imagine and they are as efficient as it gets! You will be able to mind your own business while they pack, and this will also save you money. How amazing is that?
Moving can get expensive and, in most cases, it has a significant impact on one’s budget. Fortunately, having so many professional movers and packers to choose from in Toronto leaves room for diversity of all kinds. And for you, hiring cheap movers that provide excellent services is definitely an option you should be aware of and take advantage of. Remember to schedule properly and to use your resources wisely and then the world is yours! Or at least the relaxation after the move. 🙂 Get in touch with Let’s Get Moving now and get a free quote for your move!
