FAQ

If you are planning a long-distance move, homeowners have the chance to move their items by road, air, and water, depending on where your new destination is. With the help of Atlas Canada, we’ll help you plan your move so you can get your belongings where they need to go safely.

The best method for handling a long distance move is to start as early as you can so you don’t feel rushed and overwhelmed closer to your scheduled move. This can include: 

 

  1. Calling and confirming with a professional moving company that they are able to assist you. 
  2. Organize your items for packing, including getting rid of any unwanted items to avoid overpacking. 
  3. Purchasing packing supplies. 
  4. Labeling your boxes by room as well as if they are fragile. 
  5. Deconstruct large pieces of furniture if you are able to. 
  6. Collect all your essential documents and items before packing them into your vehicle on the day of your move.

When packing for your long-distance move, homeowners should begin with non-essential items and belongings they do not see themselves using in the next couple of weeks or days. This includes plates, clothing, and any other items you do not use daily. That way, you can get the majority of your packing done and out of the way in the days before your scheduled moving day. 

To avoid injuries and damages that are otherwise preventable, homeowners should not pack any: 

 

  • Fertilizers
  • Gasoline
  • Motor oil
  • Car batteries
  • Propane
  • Bleach and other harmful chemicals 
  • Lighter fluid
  • Fireworks

 

Furthermore, you should avoid lifting any heavy objects and furniture pieces on your own to avoid hurting yourself. In addition, on the day of your long-distance move, children should be kept away from your property to prevent injuries and them from getting in the way of the movers.

To make sure your move to your new destination goes as smoothly as possible, homeowners should get a head start on their to-do list as soon as possible. Here is a checklist to help you plan your move:

 

  1. Book a date for your move.
  2. Strategize your planning. 
  3. Get rid of old items and furniture pieces you don’t want to take with you. 
  4. Change your address on essential bills and subscriptions. 
  5. Dispose of chemicals safely. 
  6. Use the food in your pantry and fridge that will expire soon. 
  7. Clean your home as much as possible before movers arrive. 
  8. Remove all garbage and recycling from your home. 
  9. Pack a bag of essentials to bring with you in your personal vehicle in case of emergencies.
