We are the experts - let us show you the way!
There is only one right way to handle your valuable possessions.
Trying to stay within a budget?
Are you worried about the cost?
Are you trying to stay within a specific budget?
You have the power!
How you pack is the most important aspect of your move. Well packed, sealed boxes with flat tops allow us to complete your move faster as we can maximize each trip to load and unload the truck.
If we can do our job more efficiently, less time is needed and the final cost will be lower!
Maple Rose Movers Tip: Wardrobe boxes are a complementary service we offer our clients. Leave your hanging clothes as they are. We will transfer your hanging items into the box(es) and then into your new closet at the unload. Save yourself the aggravation of fighting with pesky hangers while saving time and money!
Honesty really is the best policy.
When you book a service with Maple Rose Movers you will be asked a series of discovery questions. These questions help us determine the size and scope of the service you require. Whether there are five boxes to move or fifty, we are hired to perform a task and we will work until the task is complete.
Although not always intentional, it is human nature to under-estimate how much "stuff" you actually have, how much time will be required to complete the service, and subsequently what the final cost will be. Underestimating is also referred to as 'Planning Fallacy', ultimately leading to disappointment when the total hours and final cost are higher than our optimistic bias.
"The tendency to underestimate the time, costs, and risks of future actions and at the same time overestimate the benefits of the same actions. According to this definition, the planning fallacy results in not only time overruns, but also cost overruns and benefit shortfalls."
Maple Rose Movers Tip: When answering the discovery questions, try to overestimate. If you live in a one bedroom condo with 4 large closets - tell us! We try our best to estimate time and cost based on the average to worst case scenario.
Boxes vs Bins: Cardboard is King.
This picture illustrates what a properly packed box should look like when we arrive. Sealed boxes - flat on top - allow for the safe transport of your items.
Maple Rose Movers Tip: Itemize your boxes by marking the sides and top with numbers or colours that correspond to a written inventory list. This makes any item in storage easy to retrieve and deliver. The inventory list will add sanity to the unpack (i.e. wine glasses and coffee cups will be found in Kitchen Box #4.) Maple Rose Movers provides you with an inventory list on each pack we perform.
