Save Space with Business Record and Document Storage

If you are a business owner or manager or you just deal with the business documents and records of a business as part of your job, you know how quickly they can get out of hand.  One day it seems as though you have everything under control and then the next those files or hard drives are everywhere.

You know it’s not a matter of simply clearing house or ‘reducing the clutter’ because the files and documents can’t be destroyed.  It seems like such a trivial issue, but only if you take some action and do something about it.  If you just leave it, you may end up losing some important documents or worse.  Continue reading Save Space with Business Record and Document Storage

Keep Your Information Secure with Professional Movers

In today’s world, information is everywhere.  It’s not uncommon for us to share our names, social insurance numbers, tax information, banking information, credit card numbers and more without even leaving the house.  And that says nothing about all the information that might change hands if you own or run a business.  Now, when it comes to moving, your information may also be at risk.  All it takes is for one person to get his hands on your home computer for a little while and everything you’ve entered into it is no longer private.  Not to mention any hard copies of secure information you may be transporting in the move – they could fall into the wrong hands as well.

By using a professional mover, especially one like McWilliams Moving and Storage, you can ensure that your information stays secure so the only person that ever sees it is you.  Continue reading Keep Your Information Secure with Professional Movers

6 Items That Travel Best in Plastic Storage Bins

Most people are familiar with the cardboard moving box method of moving possessions from point A to point B.  Make a list of stuff that needs to be moved, get a bunch of moving boxes and then pack them up.  Of course, you also have to use quite a lot of tape making the boxes and closing them up, and you have to find something to do with them when you’re finished.  This might include passing them along to someone else, but most of the time they just end up being thrown away.

An alternative to moving your things in cardboard boxes is to use plastic storage bins instead.  And while just about any smaller item will do just fine in a plastic storage bin, there are some that make more sense than others.  Continue reading 6 Items That Travel Best in Plastic Storage Bins

Why a Moving Company is the Right Choice for Your Apartment Move

One type of move that causes many people to break out their DIY shoes is the apartment move.  It’s also the type of move that is best served with a moving company taking control of the situation.  Apartments are smaller and there is usually less to move than a full-sized house, but that doesn’t mean you won’t benefit by using a professional mover instead of doing it yourself.

Fast & Efficient

A professional moving company has usually seen it all before, or at least most of it.  This means they can do your apartment move quickly and efficiently, which is great for an apartment because there are often time constraints placed on the move.  Continue reading Why a Moving Company is the Right Choice for Your Apartment Move

Need Extra Space? Storage Solutions for Your Move

Relocating your home or office to a new location is often made problematic by the sheer quantity of things you need to take with you. Furniture and equipment are often heavy and take a lot of space. They are also breakable and have to be handled with caution. Although there are plenty of companies that provide moving services, it is not easy to find one that provides safe and secure storage solutions as well.

When moving your belongings to a far distance, space or the lack of it is often the biggest problem you will face. Most companies provide packing, loading and unloading services, but not more than that. They also cram things in small spaces which can make your items vulnerable to damage.
