Moving day can be a monumental task — one that requires organization, precision, and a touch of foresight. Whether you’re moving across town in Ottawa or to a new province, the process can be streamlined with the right preparation. ‘Pro Metro Movers’ provides not just the muscle for your move but also the expertise. Here’s our comprehensive checklist to ensure your moving day with ‘Pro Metro Movers’ is as seamless and stress-free as possible.

Weeks Before the Move:

Inventory Your Belongings:

Start Packing Non-Essentials:

Items you don’t use daily should be the first to go into boxes. Seasonal decorations, out-of-season clothes, and specialty kitchenware are perfect examples.

Order or purchase boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and markers. ‘Pro Metro Movers’ can provide high-quality materials tailored to your items’ specific needs.

One to Two Weeks Before:

Label Boxes Clearly:

Mark each box with its contents and its destined room. This will save time and confusion on moving day.
