Moving in the GTA - Some General Questions

Looking for some suggestions fellow RFD-ers. Any recommendations on:

1. Half decent movers - no crazy requirements but some minor disassembly and assembly required (like one large dining table, weight machine, and treadmill) as well as a little tight manoeuvring;

2. Above combined with temporary storage - potential of being between homes for a month or so;

3. Moving boxes - was thinking of just getting them from U-Haul;

4. Organizations looking for donations, particularly if they’re willing to pick up - furniture, clothing, kids’ clothes/toys, blue rays, DVDs etc.;

5. What does everyone do to recycle old electronics - super old iPhones, blackberry’s, computers etc.

Appreciate any suggestions.

For a moving company that will help with most of this call

They can do large item packing and storage and some disassemble and reassemble.

3. Look up used boxes on Kijiji

4. Also post on Kijiji as free stuff and most stuff will get picked up. Just not convenient to arrange individual pickups.
