‘Moving Out’ for Renovations

Posted & filed under Commercial Services, Five Star Moves, Residential Services.

With the cost of homes in Toronto and surrounding areas on the rise, many people are looking at other options when it comes to moving.  Perhaps they are downsizing – or moving into a multi-unit home to gain some extra income in the form of rent.  In many cases, even these options can be difficult on the wallet, which is why many people decide to renovate their existing home, instead.  Taking your space and making it more modern and ‘liveable’ can sometimes be a better value, which is why many Torontonians are hopping on board.

How can Five Star Movers help during a renovation?  We offer services for what we call internal moves – and not just for our residential customers, either!  Businesses and offices can also benefit when moving to different floors within the same office building.

Internal moves allow us to move your items out of the ‘renovation zone’ and into a garage, basement, attic, or temporary storage space on your property (a pod or covered area).  Our workers will come prepared with dollies, blankets (so your furniture doesn’t get scratched on the way down a staircase), toolkits, and we can also help with furniture disassembly or re-assembly.  Some people need us to move their items back within a week (perhaps if they are using their space for a special event – like a wedding!) and others who are undergoing large renovations may take a few months until they can ‘move’ back in.

What if you don’t have room to store your belongings on your property?  Five Star Movers offers assistance with storage!  We provide assistance in negotiating long-term rates (we get preferred rates with many providers) and offer great promotions in our own facilities for short-term storage, as well.

Whether you are clearing out your home or business for a week, a month, or a year, Five Star Movers can assist with keeping your belongings safe and free from damage.  Five Star Movers is a reliable and professional moving company in the GTA and Peel regions.  We provide moving services in Ontario, and parts of Quebec.  Proudly Canadian owned and operated, we have offices in Toronto and Mississauga.  Get your FREE quote today and learn how we can do all your heavy lifting with our Five Star services!
