There are not many people who relish the thought of moving. There is much to organize, remember and plan contingencies for. In the midst of all these, the last thing that should be a factor is the local movers not arriving on time.
Planning is the key
Setting a removal date is pretty straight forward; the real art comes in making certain that the Montreal movers turn up at just the right time so that no time is lost by either side having to wait around for the other to be ready. This means that simply setting the arrival time to first thing in the morning may not necessarily be the right thing to do. It is worth factoring in how the packing process is going and, most importantly, which items cannot be moved until the day itself. Any work that needs to be done on the day of moving before the Montreal moving company arrives should be planned properly so that no valuable time is lost.
Of course the right arrival time can only be booked if the arrangements are made well in advance. Even before a moving date is set, initial enquiries should be made with moving companies so that when the date is confirmed it is just a matter of calling an existing contact to book.
Keep in touch
There are countless examples to show and reasons to demonstrate why good communication is a key ingredient to a recipe for success, and this is no exception. It may sound obvious but simply being reachable by phone will guard against possible delays because of drivers getting lost. This is seen as an extinct problem by many due to the wide use of GPS, but local knowledge about roadwork diversions, delayed traffic and even obscure one way systems is not always replaceable by technology.
Equally, there is always the chance that the first choice arrival time may not have been possible when booking. Being at the other end of a phone at a moment’s notice could increase the possibility of getting that perfect time in the event of cancellations. It would be a shame to discover too late that good news could have come through on time if only for being easily contactable.
Tried and tested
It is worth mentioning, no matter how simple it sounds, that above all the planning and organizing that can be done, going to companies with a good reputation could remove that unknown variable of a dodgy company. A few conversations with friends and family about places they have gone through in the past will be a great vetting process to identify which numbers to put at the top of a calling list and which ones to avoid calling all together.
