So, you have decided to relocate to Toronto? But have you thought about logistics? Where do you start? Why put yourself through the stress of arranging this yourself when you can hire Toronto relocation professionals to do this for you.
The next question is how do you know what professionals to hire? This can be tricky if relocation is completely new to you, but there are some key attributes you should look for when hiring a relocation professional.
PICK UP THE PHONE!
The first thing you will likely do is a quick internet search for relocation services in Toronto. You will come across several sites that claim they can help, but how do you narrow down your shortlist?
The first thing you should do is make a number of inquiries and ask for some quotes. Some companies may provide a fixed fee quote, but you should be careful to check that there will be no extra additional costs that will be added to your final bill. You should be wary of companies providing you quotes without speaking to you on the phone. Without speaking on the phone or by video call it is likely that key information will be missed.
Without picking up the phone, how will you know if the Toronto relocation company is the right fit for you? This is so important as you will be in contact with them most days in the few months leading up to your relocation and no doubt after too. If the relocation services provider is not keen on speaking to you, that is definitely a red flag.
ARE THEY LOCAL?
In your research you will have found a number of companies claiming to be relocation professionals in Toronto. But do they really know Toronto? Do they know what it is like to live here? Can they really give honest genuine advice? Or are they giving you advice which you could find yourself from a quick internet search?
Relocating to Toronto is a huge decision to make, and so you want to make sure the advice you are being given accurately reflects reality. Is that neighbourhood as quiet as they say it is? Is the commute really that short? How good are the local schools? Only a professional who is local can really give you their honest opinion on the important questions you will have.
This is not to say that companies based outside of Toronto cannot successfully relocate you and your family with todays’ technology. But if you are after a more personal touch, you should consider hiring local professionals.

WHAT SERVICES DO THEY OFFER?
