Moving By Bike: Practice More And More Popular

A Bike To Move, A Quebec Idea!

It was in 2008, in Montreal, that was born the idea a little farfetched to move by bike. A very welcome approach in a city where almost all tenants and they are many, have a habit of moving every July 1, a day when it is nearly impossible to circulate in the city as the streets are full of trucks and vans The company Myette then launched a superb challenge by offering a moving service by bike, an idea that has come a long way and its proven and also emulated in France!

Moving By Bike, How Does It Work?

Bicycles are equipped with lightweight aluminum trailers, which can carry 15m3 of goods and support a weight of 300 to 400kg. From simple furniture to complete home, it is possible to move everything by bike. As with any move, the boxes and objects are attached or laminated and protected if necessary. The material remains very adaptable depending on the items to be transported. Once on their bikes, movers use secure lanes to ensure safe loading and drivers. The speed of the convoy will hardly exceed 10km / h.

Move By Bike, Simple, Practical, Green, And Economical!

Moving by bike offers many benefits. There is, of course, the ecological aspect. It is then more comfortable and less time-consuming. In the city, it is still more comfortable to ride a bike and park with a van! And finally, the prices offered by these moving cyclists defy all competition. They can be up to 40% cheaper than a classic mover. A good plan for those who have a very tight moving budget!

Useful Tools During A Change Of Residence

Whether you plan to carry out your move alone or with the help of a specialized company, it is essential to have the appropriate equipment for the operations to be performed, but also to organize well for the furniture packaging. Having the right equipment will also help you prepare for the transfer.

Small Tools For A Move

To have all the tools for the preparation, you will have to invest in several low essential materials for the excellent progress of the step. First, the moving boxes. If you hire a specialized company, they will supply you with these boxes in several sizes. In case you have to look for it yourself, remember to check that they are robust and have a reinforced structure. Also, the boxes can also be mounted without adhesive.

Then you will also need a moving kit that includes all the tools to pack your stuff: cartons, crates, big tape, label, stretch films, and so on. This will significantly facilitate your task, especially if you are moving alone.

What Supplies Do I Have?

The list of small equipment to have to ensure a move with confidence is quite long:

Moving boxes

Adhesive tape, self- adhesive labels, stretch films

Rolls of paper to protect fragile objects

Felt, bubble wrap, cutter, scissors, gloves

Twine, rope, and hoisting rope

Rolling stand and furniture lift

In order not to tire your back when loading or unloading business, also consider renting a step ladder or step, a small ladder, and a trolley. If you collaborate with a moving company, it will provide you with most of this equipment.

The Big Equipment

In addition to moving boxes and dismantling tools such as drills, screwdrivers, and screwdrivers, you will also need to think about the most essential materials and essential to the transfer namely: the moving truck sufficiently equipped and adapted to the volume to be transported, but also the elevator or furniture lift that will be intended to go up or down the furniture and any object too heavy. For this, you will still have to think of parking for the latter.

If you are considering a move abroad, it is essential to think of containers more specifically used for shipping or bulk removal. If you collaborate with a professional, the latter will provide all these materials, but otherwise, you can rent without any problem with a rental company.
