      Moving Yourself vs. Hiring Moving Company

      There is no real financial benefit when you do a long-distance move yourself from Toronto to Nova Scotia by renting a mover's truck. And here's why:

      • Renting costs more. When you rent a truck, you have to return it to the same place it was picked up. Otherwise, you'll pay a lot more than you expect. 
      • You will need a minimum of 2 people to load/unload the truck. You should also be experienced in packing your belongings, loading them into the truck, and securing the boxes. Otherwise, you will get stressed trying to fit everything in the truck to get your belongings in one piece!
      • Terrain and landscape matter. In high winds, the fuel consumption for carrying a heavy truck increases dramatically.

      Also, consider all the possible problems that can arise during a long trip from Toronto to Nova Scotia:

      1. Flat tire.
      2. Engine problems.
      3. Anything can happen on the road.
      4. Shortage of gas supply or misculation.
      5. Difficult weather conditions (blizzard, ice, etc).

      Imagine if any of the above happened to you in the middle of nowhere without phone service!

      If you're still thinking about driving a rental truck yourself from Toronto to Nova Scotia, just make sure it's much cheaper and safer to hire professionals who have done it many times. Especially for complicated cases like moving a pool table.

        The distance from Toronto to Nova Scotia is approximately 2,500 kilometres. This makes the journey by car approximately 25 hours. But this does not take into account rest stops or overnight stays, nor does it consider how loaded the truck is and the fragility of the cargo, which can limit speed on difficult stretches of road.

        This journey with us usually takes 2 days, considering the driver's rest allowance.

        Routes are customised based on the project's complexity, weather conditions, season, etc.

        Our manager will provide you with this information on the eve of your move.

        Cold temperatures, ice, snow, and rain require extra safety steps in the moving process, such as waterproofing belongings, protecting them from moisture, and sprinkling salt on walkways when loading and unloading. Slip and fall injuries are also likely.

        In addition, high winds and snow affect the difficulty of driving, require more experience, and lengthen the journey time.

        The safety of your belongings during a long haul from Toronto to Nova Scotia is affected:

        • the quality of packaging and the right packaging materials
        • correct positioning of your belongings in the truck

        We ensure all this thanks to our experience. We know how to do it right, and we will advise you. If you are moving fragile items or things that require special storage, we will take care of that too. We will make customised packing and/or provide a climate-controlled storage.
