You definitely don’t need to hear it from us: moving can be stressful. There are many details to consider, things to organize, and schedules to manage. It can be overwhelming even for the most organized people!

A lot of those things on your to-do list are often related to the move itself. Packing, preparing items, shifting items from one place to another, unpacking… Thankfully, full-service movers are ready to step up to the plate, taking all of these things (and more) off your hands.

Here are some steps you can delegate to your full-service mover, and cut your to-do list way down.


This is one of the most time-consuming parts of a move, and it starts with hunting for supplies. Running around looking for boxes is part of the battle – but do you have enough? Are they the right size? What about packing materials for breakable items? It can be a headache.

Full-service moving companies take care of all of this for you. They will arrive with all of the packing materials necessary to pack your entire home. They’ll also securely pack your fragile items to be sure they don’t get damaged in transit. Not only will this team handle the packing process for you, but they’ll also get it done in a fraction of their time.

If you have pieces of art, oversized or oddly-shaped items, your mover will also make sure these items are prepared and packed to be moved safely.

Furniture Disassembly

Not only does disassembling furniture require special tools (and the know-how), it also requires a lot of organization. Keeping track of screws, nuts, and bolts for each piece (including which one goes where) can be a bit daunting. We recommend you leave it to the professionals.

Your full-service mover will handle all of the disassemblies of your furniture to ensure it makes it out of your current home and into your new one easily. These experts will also know which pieces they will be able to manoeuver through your front door, and which need to be taken apart. Of course, they’ll also make sure the pieces are packed to rest securely in the truck.

Load and Unload

Once your things are secure and ready to go, the movers will carefully load it all into the truck. This includes boxes, furniture, appliances, artwork, and your favorite houseplants. They’ll make sure they’re loaded into the truck and secured for transport.

Once they arrive at your new home, your movers will unload all of your things and bring them inside. Not only will a full-service mover save you time and money, but they’ll also save you some strain on your body you might incur by trying to move it all yourself!

Unpacking and Reassembly

Of course, the job isn’t done when your things arrive at home. Your full-service mover will now help you to empty all of your boxes. They’ll carefully unpack all of your things, and reassemble your furniture in the right rooms. After the unpacking is done, they’ll take away all of the packing material debris, saving you from finding something to do with those empty boxes.
