Moving is a great time to declutter, especially if you are hiring a professional mover. If you are moving long-distance, the cost is based on the weight of your shipment. If you are moving within the same city, the price is based on an hourly basis. The more you declutter, the more you will save on your move.

First, decide what you want to keep, what you want to sell or donate, and what is to go to the landfill.

There are charities in Edmonton that will gladly accept clean, gently used items, and they offer a pickup service. In some cases, they may ask to see a photo of the furniture items you would like to donate to ensure they are clean and saleable.
