Long Distance Moving, more and more frequent in 2021

Tips for long-distance moving

One day, each of us will be able to change our current home to move away from it, even in another part of Canada. If you are moving a distance of more than 70 km, be aware that you are making a long distance moving. Any move, whether residential or commercial, must be prepared in advance. But above all a long-distance moving, which requires organization and planning to go stress-free and worry-free. Otherwise it might go wrong. So take advantage of our advice for a successful long-distance moving!

Long distance movings are more and more frequent in Montreal. Much of this is due to the pandemic that occurred in early 2020, causing much of the downtown Montreal office to close and forcing workers to work from home.

Due to the pandemic, rental prices have also increased in Montreal, North Shore or South Shore, so many residents of Greater Montreal are choosing to move to the suburbs.

Tips for a successful long-distance moving

Start preparations as soon as possible

1. Make a list of things to do before moving day

Firstly, one of the most important tips for a successful long distance move is to create a checklist. To avoid unpleasant surprises, it is best to make a list of all the things to do to make the move easy. Take only the essentials with you into your new home. Secondly, take advantage of it and make some sort of personal effects. There are definitely some things you haven’t used in a while. These include: clothing, various objects or even papers / letters that have accumulated over the years. Throw away what you can, give or sell. Besides the fact that you will get rid of things that were useful for a long time, you will have even less to carry. But you can also renew some things.

2. Choosing the right moving period and moving company

In general, there are different good and bad times when it comes to moving. It is desirable to avoid moving on weekends or during school holidays. And especially if you want to turn to a moving company, it is important to choose a date that is less frequently requested. Likewise, if you want to benefit from a good rate for your moving, avoid the periods mentioned above. In Montreal, North-Shore and South-Shore, the busiest period and the highest rate starts in May and ends in August. If you can avoid these times of the year, you can actually save a fair amount of money. But, this is a general statistic, it all depends on the year, there are quieter times even during these months.

Registered and insured moving company

By using the services of a moving company like Déménagement Demelina, you can take care of yourself and your family while they take care of the entire moving.

Before arriving in your new home, you must inform the institutions to which you belong of your change of address. The most important institutions would be: financial institution, Hydro-Québec, the Régie des rentes du Québec, the Société de l’assurance automobile du Québec, Revenu Québec, the Chief Electoral Officer and the Régie de l’assurance maladie du Québec.
