Move Origin and Destination: Summerside, PE to Summerland, BC
Testimonial Received: September 24, 2013
"Our family moved across the country twice in 3 years.
The first move we used a traditional moving company that loaded and reloaded
our belongings on different trucks across the country. For the second move
across the country we used the Flexible Move program and controlled the
circumstances of our move. Best of all, the Flexible Move program cost half as
much as the first move with the other moving company. Flexible Move program -
Twice the convenience, half the cost."

How Does Flexible Move Work? - Loading

Dates are scheduled Monday to Friday during regular business
hours, and the container will arrive between 8-10 am. Saturday service is only
feasible if the servicing Member is available, although an extra charge is
included. Service is not available on Sundays or holidays.
Two walk boards are provided with the Flexible Move trailer
in order for you to load the container(s). As the walk boards are heavy, at
least 2 people are needed to lift them out of the walk board racks and place
onto the container; if moving more than one container, you will need to move
the walk boards from container to container. The walk boards must be replaced
back onto the designated rack on the trailer.
Each container will come with quilted moving blankets,
furniture skins and straps to assist with the loading. Walk-boards are provided
to get in and out of the container with ease.

Key Things to Remember When Moving in the Snow

Winter moving can be a lot harder than normal, and let’s face it moving is hard enough as it is. When snow is involved it makes it that much more of a hassle. But it doesn’t have to be, if you take all the right precautions to be prepared.
The things you must remember to do when there is snow on the ground when moving is to make sure all pathways are shoveled and salted. Remember, not only your doorway needs to be clear, but all other doors and pathways/walkways must be clear too for loading. This includes clearing your backyard, if necessary. Don’t forget if you have a shed to have the pathway to the shed clear for unloading the items you will be packing and loading in your moving container from the shed. It may be a good idea too, to unload your shed prior to your move, if you are in an area that is expecting or gets a lot of snow during the time you move.
It is important to remember to pack all outdoor items that you may have as well before a snowfall prior to the move. This includes things not only in the shed, but outdoor ornaments/decorations that you may have around the house (front/back) that can easily be forgotten about or covered in snow, for example the ornaments that you may place in your front yard/ backyard ground or garden.
Ensure that the parking areas for any vehicles and moving trailers are clear and salted for parking in a planned designated area for moving day.
Being prepared ahead of time for your move in the winter snow, will allow for a smooth move and less stressful move!

Moving Your Vehicle

Preparing Your Goods For Container Moving
If you are moving and plan on putting your moving container into storage, then there are key things to remember about your packed belongings.
If you are packing any appliances such as a refrigerator or freezer, then remember to make sure these appliances are clean and completely dry so that you prevent mould or water leaks.
If you are planning storage during the winter months, then make sure you do not pack anything that can freeze and/ or break; things such as perishable items or electronics.
Do not pack any dangerous or hazardous materials/ liquids in your container as these things can be explosive, flammable, etc.
Keep these tips in mind and your move and time in storage should have no issues.

Things NOT to Pack on Moving Day
On your load day it is important to remember not to pack any valuables in your moving container. Anything that you consider of great value or that you may need throughout your travels to your destination; whether it be sentimental, of high cash value, or of great necessity, then you should not pack these items.
Electronic items such as your cell phones, iPads, iPods, cameras, etc. should not be packed. You wouldn’t want these items to go missing or get broken and you will most likely need your phone. Any expensive valuables such as your jewelry should not be packed either if you do not want these items to go missing, in any case. You may want to think about whether or not to pack your pictures, and if you do then make sure your photos are packed in a waterproof container. This way your photos cannot be damaged. Lastly, the most important thing you should definitely not pack is your purse, keys and family’s I.D.’s. You may come across a situation that you will need your identification. If you have children (or for yourself) you need to have all health cards on you at all times, or at least photocopies. Just in case.
Don’t risk the chance of losing your most valued items, in the case of any event.
