Low-cost Move to Montreal
Eventually, in our life, we have to move. Some do it almost every year, while others do it only a few times in their lifetime. Moving is an operation that is both complex and costly. The more belongings, furniture and household appliances are involved, the more complex it is.
But whether you are at your first moving operation or at your twentieth, you are probably looking to complete a low-cost move to Montreal, or anywhere in its region. At Demenaris, we offer you a few tips to save on this important expense that everyone dreads when they need to move, whether it is over a short or a long distance.
Discover our tips and tricks for a low-cost move to Montreal. Those tips will be useful to you, even if you choose not to use the services of a professional moving company in Montreal, like Demenaris (you can consult the opinions of our satisfied customers on Google).
Ways to Save
The two principal ways to save and achieve a low-cost move to Montreal are to take care of the packing on your own and to carry out your move during the low season. These are the two criteria that will have the biggest impact on helping you reduce the total cost of your move.
Packing your belongings on your own is the easiest. However, make sure you have the right tools and to do it properly. First, use solid boxes and good adhesive tape. Then, pack your items according to the rooms of your home (bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, etc.).
Ensure that fragile items are well protected by adding extra padding. Do not overload the boxes; a box filled with books will be very heavy to handle, and the cardboard might easily break.
In Québec, more than in any other location in the world, the date you are moving has a significant impact on the cost. To have a low-cost move to Montreal, we have two tips for you regarding the date: as far as possible from July 1st (either before or after) and preferably during the week. This second criterion is easier to control than the first.
Finally, you could think it is much cheaper, for a low-cost move to Montreal, to do it on your own or by enlisting the help of amateurs promoting themselves on Kijiji or other classifieds platforms. But, think about insurances, breaks and injuries.
Only a professional moving company like Demenaris can reduce the breakage and injuries, by having the proper tools of the trade and using them professionally, and have an insurance coverage to compensate you in case of problems.
Short or Long Distance
Another factor that is hard to control is the distance of the move. Obviously, distance affects the cost. A low-cost move to Montreal will then be ideally a local move.
However, if you are moving over a long distance, Demenaris can help you reduce the cost of your move by combining it with the one of another client making roughly the same trip, or doing it in the reverse direction. Sometimes, a bit of flexibility can make you save a bundle.
A professional mover, like Demenaris, can perfectly adapt to your needs, which reduces the total cost.
The first way for a professional moving company has to help reduce your bill is by optimizing the human and material resources assigned to your move. You need to have a truck with the right size to minimize the number of trips and enough employees to load and unload it quickly, without exaggeration.
The second way is to offer you as much or as little help as you require. Although our complete turnkey solution is affordable, it is not the best option for a low-cost move to Montreal.
