Almost all blogs that discuss packing and moving agree to one particular thing. Your mission packing should begin with a systematic de-cluttering. That means, before looking for GTA movers in Toronto, you need to manage the belongings that you would not want to carry to your new address. However, while the experts agree that recycling, selling and donating would be the best way to get started, very few would discuss how that can be made. Here are tips to help you soothe this bump.
Organize a garage sale
This is indeed a fruitful way to get at least some extra money from the things you don’t need anymore. And in Canada, garage sale does not necessarily require any license. Yet, there are some basic by-laws, which you might want to follow and avoid fines.
- You can arrange a maximum of two garage sales in a year.
- Each sale would last for two days consecutively.
- You can display the sale sign only from 5 PM of the day before the sale starts to 7 AM of the following day.
Even if you are living in a condo, you can arrange for garage sales. This apart, you can also put your duplicate and unwanted belongings for online sales. This can help you reach more buyers.
Throwing away the junks
If you have some unusable belongings, then you can simply put them for recycling. Look for junks in cupboards, closets and drawers. Ensure that you get contractor graded garbage bags to keep the throwaways. You would also ideally look for “bag tags.” It is the permission slip that you will need to throw all your excess garbage. These slips are available online for purchase. You need to pay for each bag of trash that goes beyond what would fit in your regular garbage bin. The bin needs to be closed, to be precise.
Getting help from roadrunners
If you have some bulky and large items to dispose of, you might want to avail of “only labor’ services from Great Toronto movers. The team will give you all the support that you need to carry the junks from your place. The team can also keep a garbage bin in the driveway for you to fill in. All you need is to keep your junks and call the team when done. This service is available for both residential and office movers.
Both for-profit and non-profit charitable organizations in Toronto accept donations in any form. So if you have some dresses, electronics, or exercise equipment, or accessories that you don’t need anymore, you can put them in the sale. Later, consider donating the remaining belongings to any organization you want. The team would come to your home to collect them.
