Please remember, furniture are different there at Canada. Usually when you shift your house everyone throw things straight away as, labor and shifting is expensive there. You better buy new staff cheaper than ur shifting cost sometimes. Huge furniture are associated with huge labor, and you are to pay 5-6 dollars an hour, so...............Segun khat shipped to Toronto might be a night mare unless you are a millionaire, have your own mansion (Detached or semi-detached house with 12'X15' room size) and got into for 5-6 years. These khats would look very peculiar in a tight 10'X9' room with virtually no space for other stuffs. The regular bed will cost you 120-150 dollars with mattress and after 2-3 years when you shift you through away. You can have pretty dinning chair sets (04) for 100-200 dollars solid timber (Check Kijiji
and look for furnitures, there you can find loads of furniture for free pickup only, or for few quids). Even if you do have a furniture for free, you are to hire a pickup van for 60 dollars mate...
if you dont have a friend with a free pickup van......decision is now yours mate.
My understanding is we buy stuffs, after we settle. (where we get the permanent jobs, kids school and neighborhood etc). Till that time better keep low and go Sunnati
style, straight on the floor on mat n mattress. Salam and regards.
