You found the perfect home and now you're gearing up for the moving day? Find a reliable moving company by following our useful tips:

  • Get recommendations: Ask your neighbours, friends and coworkers if they have anyone to recommend. You can also look for online reviews on social networking sites or online directories.

  • Shop around: Narrow your search down for at least 3-4 moving companies and research them thoroughly. Contact them for an in-home estimate and compare their prices and services.

  • Do initial screening/background check: Find reviews from past customers online and check the company's record on sites such as Better Business Bureau®.

  • Get references: Prepare a list of detailed and pertinent questions to ask when you call your company's references.

  • Make sure they're insured: Ask your company for their insurance and license information in writing.

  • Prepare a checklist. Write down everything you need to know and do before the moving day. You may find helpful information here.

For all US visitors coming to our website, we recommend a new moving guide, as published by the consumer advocacy organization, this guide serves as a helpful resource for all those planning to move. Here is their direct URL:

Renting a local storage unit will help you deal with overflowing possessions while you’re renovating, moving, getting ready to sell your home or getting rid of clutter for a home stager. Find a storage unit that’s right and ready for you, and don’t forget your moving boxes and supplies at Montreal Box Depot!

Before choosing the self-storage facility, consider the following:

  • Is the self-storage facility safe? What are the security measures put in place on the premises?

  • How easy it is for you to access?

  • Is the size of the unit right for your needs?

  • Is the facility climate-controlled? Are the temperature and humidity safe for your leather or upholstered furniture, documents and clothes?

  • Is the facility clean, well-kept and pest-free?

Home Staging

Attract potential buyers by making your house look like a homeowner's dream. Here are some simple tricks to spruce up your place and increase its curb appeal:

  • De-clutter: Less is more! The house will appear bigger and brighter with fewer (and smaller) pieces of furniture. Don't keep any decorative items, magazines and kitchen appliances on open display to keep the house as neat as possible.

  • Depersonalize: Remember you're selling a house for someone else to live in, so make sure the space is free of signs that it belongs to you. Create a neutral space that will appeal to a broad spectrum of potential buyers.

  • Optimize your space: Re-arrange your furniture in small groups with lots of space around them. You should aim to make your rooms look spacious and bright.

  • Paint the walls: Refresh your home with a new coat of paint. Choose light, neutral colours.

  • Light it up: Brighten up your place with lamps and chandeliers. Playing with light will make your space appear warm, inviting and spacious.

  • Clean and fix: Take a close look at your house to make sure every nook and cranny is clean and all repairs are taken care of.

  • Buy fresh flowers: Your house needs to seem neutral yet livable. Putting up a vase with fresh flowers is an affordable way to make a house look more inviting.

Before you move in or move out, it's a good idea to have an experienced contractor have a look at the house and take care of repairs and upgrades. Before you hire a contractor:

  • Ask around for recommendations from neighbours, friends and family. This also gives you an opportunity to view a project that the contractor worked on.

  • Get references and call to ask what type of work the contractor and how they did.

  • Do a thorough screening/ background check, including references, online presence and reviews.

  • Make sure your contractor is registered and licensed.

  • Ask whether they're insured and get their insurance details in writing.
