Shouldn’t one of life’s inevitabilities be more tolerable? Moving never seems to go the way we plan, does it? You order boxes “enough for a two-bedroom apartment” and halfway through the packing process, you’re out of boxes—and you only have a ONE-BEDROOM apartment. Or, you get a few friends and family members to agree to help load a self-serve/operated moving truck on a certain date and, lo and behold EVERYONE is collectively sick and/or unavoidably busy. Or, you throw out your back, transforming from an able-bodied 30-something to an instant 80-something in the blink of an eye.
Who can relate?
You’ll learn a lot over a lifetime of moves and you may wish you would have over your pride and enlisted ABS Movers & Storage to handle your Mississauga, ON, moves for you a lot sooner!
First, you live in Canada
Have you ever moved in the snow? Not ideal. And also, not typical. But, it happens—especially if you sign enough 18-month leases. At some point, you are bound to move from one place to another in a blizzard or something. And no one volunteers to help you in those cases. If they do, you’ll never hear the end of it!
Injuries are a very real possibility
Or likelihood, in many cases. Inevitably, you might think you can move your stuff without a dolly or gloves or any real core support. By day #2 of loading a self-serve moving truck (yes, day #2—friends and family are sick and/or unavoidably busy, remember? Do you always forget to “lift with your legs?” You stoop to pick up boxes and BAM! You find myself on the Bengay 2-Week Plan.
So many unforeseen costs
Try estimating your distance and fuel for the self-serve moving truck accurately. You have to be a mathematical wizard to determine a solid estimate, within the ballpark of the final charges, before the final invoice. What’s more, you have to buy more boxes than you ever imagined, packing material, and tape. And, if you enlist help, you’re obligated to buy gifts (or risk your loved ones asking you for help when they move next). Then, when you find out you’ve mistakenly reserved a self- serve moving truck that’s too small, you get to make multiple trips, pay for extra fuel and distance, etc. It adds up…fast!
You have so much stuff
Let’s be clear, even if you don’t hoard, you always discover (during the moving process) that you have so much stuff you don’t need or want any longer. That means you need to bag donation items, throw things away and put a whole process into effect. If you hired professionals, they would have remove the junk for you.
Hopefully, it will be a while before you move again. One thing is for sure, though: You need ABS Movers & Storage to assist with your next move, storage, and/or junk removal.
