Trusted Saskatoon Mover Rays Moving & Storage Share 5 Tips for A Stress Free Move

In life, few events match the stress of moving. In this busy time of new beginnings and major changes, Rays Moving & Storage appreciated that their clients place a great deal of trust and responsibility with them.

Moving everything you own is a very personal experience and something that they do not take lightly... Moving can be an especially stressful time for families, whether it is across town or across the country. Having a true professional like Rays handling your possessions is the key to alleviating all of your worries! In their latest tip Rays share 5 tips for a dress free move. Rays are Trusted Saskatoon Movers & Storage Pros.


Move-in day excitement shouldn’t be overshadowed by moving day anxiety. Some smart preparation can go a long way towards making moving a little more uplifting (and a little less heavy lifting). Here are 5 things you can do leading up to your move to make for less stress on moving day.

Tip 1. Consider Your Move Date

Like apples and pumpkin spice lattes, there is a peak season for moving. Considering that the first and last weeks of the month can be particularly popular, a mid-week, mid-month move is your best bet.

Having access to the widest array of dates and times means that you’ll be able to plan your move when it’s most convenient for you. 

Tip 2. Have a Packing Plan

Less stuff equals less stress when it comes to packing. Take stock of what you actually want to take when you move. It is time for a purge?

This meticulous approach keeps you sane and helps you plan—knowing exactly what you’ll be moving and how unwieldy those items is key for deciding what kind of moving company you’ll need.

Tip 3. Do Your Research

Options can be overwhelming, but having the right information will make you feel confident that you’re hiring the right team for your move. When it comes to moving companies, they generally fall into 3 major categories: full-service, self-service, and specialized. How much you have to move, what kind of items you’re moving, and your budget will determine which category of moving company makes the most sense. In broad terms, a full-service moving company handles every part of the move—from packing to transporting to unloading at your final destination. A self-service company generally handles only the transportation part of the move (meaning that packing, unpacking, loading, and unloading the truck are up to you) and specialized moving companies are trained in proper techniques for moving unique items like antiques, art, appliances, or pianos.

Ensure that movers you select are properly licensed and insured professional movers like Rays.

4. Budget Accordingly

Expenses can add up quickly, especially when you’re moving long-distance, so keeping track of your budget is a crucial step in your pre-move plan. Your moving quote will be a powerful tool to help you budget.

5. Think About Moving Insurance

When you’ve taken care to pack only your most meaningful belongings, the last thing you want is to worry about them being damaged on their way to your destination. Moving insurance can give you peace of mind. You can ask the moving companies giving you quotes what expanded coverage they may offer, or, if your items are particularly valuable, you may want to consider carrying your own third-party moving insurance policy as well.

TRUSTED PARTNER: Rays Moving

DATE OF MS:Monday November 21st (phone call) Thursday December 1st (move date)

MYSTERY SHOP CHECKLIST

1. How was the greeting/ welcome/ call answered?

I was transferred to a very friendly and extremely helpful fellow who booked my move for a time and day that worked for me in less than 10 minutes. I would normally have written down his name, but under the circumstances I neglected to do so therefore I have forgotten the name of the person that I spoke with. He was absolutely great to deal with!

2. If retail: Appearance of the store / staff 

Booking was done over the phone, did not go to office.

3. Product/industry knowledge of staff? N/A

4. If a quote is required is the quote well laid out/ clear?

I did not ask for a quote as I was more concerned about being moved on a certain date by a reputable mover. My sister had called around approx. a month prior for rates for my Dad’s move, so I was aware of what current rates for movers were.

5. Did they ask where you found them?

No, I told him how I found Ray’s on Trustedsaskatoon.com website.

6. Overall experience 1-10. –

I will give them a 9.5

7. Would you return as a customer/ recommend them to close friends? 

Yes, and I will use them again when I move my things out of the storage facility to my new home.

8. Did anyone stand out as exceptional? or the opposite..If so who? Why? 

As well as the above mentioned fellow who booked my move, I found the two fellows that actually moved me to be fast, professional, friendly and compassionate. I was moving due to a breakdown in my long term relationship, and those two guys really tried to cheer me up!

9. If you made a purchase/booked a job how was the process? If so refer to the Trusted Guarantees below and give an overall mark on each if applicable.

See above #6 ..I am pleased to say they upheld all the guarantees!
