Back to School!

Posted & filed under Five Star Moves.

Back to School season is here again and, for some families, this means big changes.  Many young adults will remember this year as the time they packed up and left for college or university in another big city.  It can be an exciting and emotional time for parents and their children, alike.

At Five Star Movers, we understand the importance of feeling ‘settled’ in your new home away from home.  We are a family-owned and operated company, ourselves, and we have been through many similar changes of our own.

A customer recently called us to help move their daughter from Toronto to Hamilton for school.  We could immediately tell it was a very stressful time for the parents – as they also have two younger children they have to prepare for ‘back to school’ season.  It was also the daughter’s first time moving away, and she was excited and overwhelmed at the same time!  We assured her parents that we could pack up their daughter’s belongings, wrap all of her furniture, and move and unpack it in Hamilton within the time allotted.  Since it was a one-bedroom move from Toronto to Hamilton (about an hour away), we completed the job in one day, giving their daughter an ample amount of time to get used to her new apartment and enjoy it a bit before the stress of school began.  On moving day, the parents could leave us to unpack and set up the space, while they grocery-shopped and got last-minute items ready for their daughter’s new home.

All-in-all, we were happy to help a family during an important milestone in their lives.  Another Five Star Move!
