Small Move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil

In urban areas, we often refer to small moves, because more people live in apartments and condos than in houses. This phenomenon can be explained by the population density and by the high cost of houses in large metropolitan areas. People then live very often within larger buildings, which can be apartments, condos or senior residences.

So, we often talk about a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil. Outside those cities, we end up in richer or more rural suburbs, where the density of population is lower, even though they are still part of the Greater Montreal Area.

Even for a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil, it is preferable to deal with professionals, like Demenaris, as we will see in this article.

A Small Move

The first thing to ask ourselves is, “What is a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil?” As we just saw it, there are many more people living in small living units than in large three-story houses, as far as urban centers are concerned. It is also obvious that people living in apartments move more frequently than those living in their own house.

A small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil then implies a move from or to a residential tower. That could be a small apartment (studio, 1 1/2, 2 1/2 or 3 1/2) or a residence for students or the elderly people, etc.

Sometimes, it could even be a semi or totally furnished apartment, so there is little to no furniture to move.

In summary, we are talking about a move involving a rather small volume of objects to transfer from point A to point B. It will consist mainly of boxes of personal effects (clothes, books, computer or audio equipment) and a small amount of furniture and household appliances.

Students and Elderly People

Among the clienteles that often hire us for a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil, there are two specific groups: students and elderly people.

Students from all over Quebec and Eastern Ontario come to study in Montreal, attending one of the many colleges and universities found in the large city. Those students either go in student residences (including many hotels that have recently been reconverted for that purpose) or gather in a smaller group to share an apartment.

They all need to leave their main residence location to come to Montreal. We offer them a minimalist and cost-effective service for a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil, providing only a truck and a driver.

Another group for which we have a special offer is the one of the elderly people, to whom we offer a special rebate during specific months throughout the year, in recognition of their contribution to our current lifestyle. Often, those moves are completed towards a residence where they will have easy access to all the services they need.

Some will wonder if it is really necessary to use the services of a professional moving company for a small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil.

Of course, it is tempting to do it on your own by enlisting the help of friends and family. However, that is more complicated to do during a sanitary crisis like the one of COVID-19.

But you also need to consider the risk you are taking with your belongings that could be fragile, heavy or bulky. Even among a small overall volume of possessions, you could have some of those objects requiring special attention.

A professional mover will take good care of those objects and will also offer you an insurance coverage.


Another type of small move to Montreal, Laval or Longueuil is our delivery service. Although most stores offer a delivery service in that zone, it could happen that this service be extremely expensive or long, because the store has many customers and just one truck, for example.

It is also possible that you have found the furniture of your dreams in classified ads. It is then complicated to make the transfer of a large furniture piece between two individuals.
In those two scenarios, as well as many others, we can take care of the delivery for you and bring your goods to your place.
