Three Important Points on your Moving Checklist

Here at Real Canadian Movers, we help thousands of families, individuals and businesses move every year, all over Canada. We recognize how overwhelming preparing for a move can be, whether moving local or long distance. So, we’ve asked some of our top movers all across Canada to assist us in writing some short, useful articles to help make your next move a total breeze.

This week, we interviewed three of our most experienced moving specialists to find out the essential, but easily forgotten, things you NEED to have on your next moving checklist.

#3 – Advance Planning

Moving during spring or summer? Plan ahead! These are the busiest seasons, with the most Canadians (ourselves included!) preferring to drive without snow on the roads. This topic is so large; we have a blog post completely dedicated to planning in

advance coming soon. Watch out for it!

The solution? Pick a moving date early, and book your move with reliable movers as far in advance as you are able.

Real Canadian Movers can accommodate your busy schedule with easy online price quotes and scheduling.


This is one of the most overlooked aspects of residential moving! It can seem like a no brainer, but even if your new home is larger than your old one, it is still possible that some furniture might not fit.

The solution? Pick a moving company that offers storage solutions as part of a complete moving package, or research separate storage companies ahead of time.

Real Canadian Movers offers flexible storage solutions across Canada!

#1 – Pianos and Vehicles

By a big margin, the number one thing all our top movers mentioned. If you have a piano or vehicle you need transported, mention it to your movers. Pianos require specialty equipment to move without damaging, and not all movers are correctly equipped to move them. Vehicle transportation likewise requires advance notice and proper preparation to do correctly.

The solution? Hire professional movers that are equipped and prepared to move specialty items properly.
