GTA Moving Tips
Check Parking Availability for Movers
Find out where your mover’s truck will park. If need be, block-off a space in front of your home. Make sure it is at least 2 car lengths long. (Big enough for a truck)
Or, find out about access to the moving room in your building. Your condo may not have one. Ask building management in advance if there are any special instructions on where and how to park the moving truck.
GTA Parking & Traffic Laws that affect Moving Trucks
Note posted parking signs in front of your home or moving area. On some streets in GTA, moving trucks are not able to stop during ‘rush hours’. Other streets restrict parking.
Book your elevator in advance
Better to schedule as much time as possible. Three hours is usually more then enough time. But it’s better to have a little padding in the schedule just in case there are any delays. Also, double check with condo or building management closer to your moving date to confirm your reservation. Building management is notorious for double booking elevator times – it happens time and time again. This mix-up could end up costing you money and time. Better to get it in writing ahead of time and confirm closer to your moving date.
Moving in GTA during Holidays, Parades, and Marathons
Check for any up coming events in Toronto that may impede your movers. During the winter months there is The Santa Claus Parade. During the spring and summer there are many events to note, such as Caribana, The Toronto Marathon, and Gay Pride festivities. During these times many Toronto streets are completely shut down and access for moving is extremely limited.
About the GTA
The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) is the biggest city in Canada, with a 2006 census population of 5.5 million. The Greater Toronto Area is usually defined as the central city of Toronto, along with four regional municipalities surrounding it: Durham, Halton, Peel, and York. The area is at the centre of the Golden Horseshoe, which contains approximately one-fourth of the population of Canada.
Economically, the Greater Toronto Area is responsible for generating one-fifth of the gross domestic product of Canada and home to nearly 40 per cent of Canadian corporate headquarters. The region’s GDP is higher than the province of Quebec, being worth $323 billion. While Toronto remains central to the largest of the business centres, including the five largest banks of Canada, cities and towns outside of Toronto have increasingly become home to several industries. Some sectors also based outside of Toronto in the Greater Toronto Area include automotive manufacturing, wholesale and retail, software production, information technology, telecommunications, sports, education, agriculture, mining, construction, and engineering. The backbone of transportation in the area is Highway 401, the busiest roadway in North America and among the busiest in the world. The area is also home to five public research universities and six community colleges.
The Greater Toronto Area is different from the Census Metropolitan Area of Toronto, which covers a smaller region. As of early 21st century, the regional span of the Greater Toronto Area has been extended to include the city of Hamilton, Ontario and its surrounding region, to form the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area, an urban area which has a total population ranked among the top-50 in the world.
