Moving Day Baby

Nothing changes the dynamic of a household for the better more than the exciting new addition of a baby. On that same note, nothing makes previously routine household tasks more challenging than that very same new addition. Imagine now that if you find yourself on the verge of a household move soon after your family unit has increased by one bundle of joy?

A household relocation is a challenge enough in itself. Having children in the home makes the move even more “interesting” but at least if they are over 5 you can put them to work too. Babies’ sole tasks however are to look cute, eat, sleep, and uh…dutifully fill diapers. So when you are about to undergo a household move with a baby in tow, you need to be as prepared as possible so as to not to disturb the routine of the new boss of the home. You too will sleep better by accommodating the little dictator.

Our Ottawa moving company has provided a few tips on how to best perform a household move with a baby:

Staying Connected While Moving

Stay connected wherever you can when the home office is offline

Moving rarely comes at a convenient time. This is especially true if you manage your own business and/or work remotely requiring that you be online and connected to the world around the clock. A 9 to 5 employee can book a day or two off or simply leave their work “at the office” after hours and focus on their relocation then but when home base IS the office, moving can turn someone’s personal AND corporate world upside down.

Many of us have the good fortune to work from home (or remotely) because we can connect to customers, partners, and associates online, often more efficiently than face to face, as long as the connection remains open. But when in the middle of a relocation, your Internet access and service is likely to be interrupted during the address change-over and your physical home office (desktop set up) may not be connected for a few days.

Below our Kemptville and Ottawa Moving Company offers a few tips to help you stay connected during your next relocation:

Preparing to Move to a College Dorm

No one can fully prepare you for THIS – but we’ll do our part.

It’s that time of the year when the ruling class of high school seniors lose their rank and become the freshman on campus. Moving off to college is a big step for teary eyed Moms and Dads and for wide-eyed-with-anticipation teens embarking on a new life chapter. Dorms offer the most unique accommodations experience one will ever have in their lives (Amsterdam hostels aside) and the moving process is just as different.

Our Ottawa moving company has moved more than a few high school grads off to college and during the consultation process we’re bombarded with questions about what to expect and what to prepare for. Here we offer 5 tips on how to best prepare for a move to on-campus dorm life:

Military Service Background Makes a Better Mover

THIS is in Our DNA – Can You Imagine How Well We Handle a Moving Truck?

As Ottawa Ontario movers our management team has well over two decades of direct experience. That statistic alone is valuable to anyone seeking a professional mover. Sure, other Ottawa movers may make the same claim but one background trait of Total Move Management runs much deeper than that and truly sets our Ottawa moving company far apart from the rest – the multi-generational military service family background of owner/manager Mike McIntosh.

Growing up as a proverbial “airforce brat”, Mike quickly learned the logistics of moving at an early age. Having to relocate frequently, 17 different cities (including overseas) to be exact, gave Mike a perspective that no other form of experience or training could provide. The knowledge, skills, values, and philosophies held by Total Move Management are born from the owner’s storied and honorable past and are reflected in the happy smiles of satisfied customers.

Here we provide a few details about how Total Move Management owner/manager’s background in serving his country will serve you and your family in a household relocation:

Moving to Brockville? Bring a Boat

In addition to Kemptville and the Ottawa area, Total Move Management has been serving the Brockville community as a Brockville moving company for many years. We usher in new residents from all over North America and when we see the serene look on their faces as we unpack them into their new home near the water we know two things; they’re about to become lifelong members of this fine community and they’ll probably be investing in a boat sometime in the near future.

Located at the downstream portion of the island and atoll peppered St Lawrence River, Brockville is a playground for water sports enthusiasts and casual seafarers of Ontario. If you’re moving to Brockville and the surrounding area, here’s why you’ll want to pack along a kayak, at the very least:
