Professional Movers

As you move, it is important to realize that there are simply certain items that require special attention.  Some Toronto movers may not move these items for you if they have not been properly packed and handled.  Even if you are moving on your own, you may want to consider these packaging and handling tips.

Potentially Dangerous or Lethal Materials

There are a large variety of materials out there that are not only dangerous to move, but may also be illegal to move without certain authorizations.  Potentially dangerous or lethal materials are nothing to take lightly, and their care should be managed by a professional before you bring in your Toronto movers.  If you have any of the following items, it is imperative that you contact your recycling center, fire station, or even Environment Canada to help you to determine how to properly dispose of or move these items.  

  • Acid
  • Aerosols
  • Ammonia
  • Ammunition
  • Car Batteries

Food Items & Other Perishables

When you move across town, properly packing and handling any food or perishable items will allow you to bring them into your new home.  This is something that you will want to handle yourself, and you will need to be extra careful with items that could spoil quickly, such as dairy and meat products.  However, if you are not moving locally, you will want to trash all your perishable items and start fresh in your new space.

High Dollar, and High VALUE, Items

There is a major difference between a high dollar item and a high value item.  High dollar items are things that are monetarily of value, such as your electronics or your jewelry.  High value items may not have any monetary value to them at all, such as pictures and important papers.
Consider transporting these items yourself rather than your Toronto movers when you make your next move:
