Get your belongings off the walls
It can seem like a lot of effort to you to get everything off the floor, especially when you have so many things on the wall. However, it can be done slowly and little by little if you begin two or three weeks before the move.
Actually, it is very simple. Walking around the home, you can take the items down if you walk past them. You should place them against the wall on the floor. Shark movers can recommend you one easy tip. If you want to be organized, you can find a wall that is out of the way and put all your belongings like mirrors, clocks, and paintings against it.

It is better to keep hangers and nails in one small bag so that you can use them while decorating your new home.
Fold your beddings
Strip your mattress and fold up all the bedding before the move. If you are using the packing service of the moving company, they will only have to put pillows, sheets, and blankets inside a box. On the other hand, if you are packing yourself, then you should put a box near your bed so that you can pack one box before even changing your pajamas.
Put aside anything you don’t want movers to touch
You want to keep some items such as phones, chargers, bathroom junk, cigarette lighter, maps, and a lot of items on hand while moving. It is recommended to designate one place for this kind of stuff in order not to get them packed or moved. The better choice for this is the kitchen counter, so you can put all that stuff into a labeled box and keep them there until the end of moving.
Drain your blowers
Gasoline and oil are considered not movable things, so you cannot put them in the moving truck. You can give that gasoline to your neighbor and they will appreciate it, at the same time, you will not pollute the environment. You shouldn’t forget that propane tanks are also considered not movable items and the movers will not take them, even if they are empty.
Empty the shelves
It can be extremely challenging if your shelves are loaded with the items your movers in Toronto will be packing. It is better to put all those shelf items in piles and disassemble the shelves yourself. A plastic type of shelving can easily come apart so you can save money by reducing the work time of the movers.
