Have you ever had the experience of packing to relocate to a new Ottawa home, only to discover in horror that you don’t have the right number of boxes for moving? It’s a frustrating realization, and one that often sends many homeowners to make bad choices, including:
- Rushing out to pay too much for overpriced cardboard boxes at the store. The homeowners know they are being overcharged for far too little, but they’re frantic to finish packing.
- Stuffing their belongings into the boxes for moving they already have. This just leads to overcrowding, and that’s a recipe for disaster. Books crush dishes, kids’ toys get ruined and wedding china becomes cracked.
- Trying to use non-box items around the house to transport their goods. This can be anything from pillowcases to empty appliances to dresser drawers. While creativity can be a great skill, not everything can or should be turned into a moving box!
The answer is clear: Get help choosing the right number of boxes for your move.
