Moving Tips

Moving is a big endeavor, use our to-do list and moving tips to help you ensure you’re prepared:

One month before your move

  • Ask for the movers’ insurance. You may need to purchase additional coverage.
  • Do not be misled by hourly rates. Inquire about additional charges such as gas and kilometers.
  • Contact the provincial health and driving license offices to notify them of your change of address
  • Contact your bank manager and notify them of your change of address.
  • Register your change of address with the post office.
  • Gather all important documents.
  • If you are moving into or out of an apartment, book the use of an elevator (very important!)

Two weeks before your move

  • Take a good look at what is worth moving and what is not.
  • Have a moving sale. Get rid of anything that is unnecessary.
  • Arrange for the takeover of utilities, including home phone.
  • Start packing if you are planning on doing it yourself.
  • Label all boxes.

One week before your move

  • Prepare a list of all items you want to take with you personally-include all jewelry and valuables that you do not wish to be entrusted to movers.
  • Dismantle and/or unfasten anything that requires it (not for gold service customers).
  • Prepare a list of everything else that is left.
  • Reconfirm the booking with the moving company.
  • Defrost and air dry the deep freezer.

Two days before your move

  • Do your last load of laundry. Disconnect and drain the washing machine.
  • Disconnect, defrost, and air dry the fridge.
  • Protect delicate furniture with a thick coat of wax.

One day before your move

  • Pack all items that you will take with you personally. Mark them “DO NOT LOAD”. It would be better if these were out of the house before the movers arrive.

Moving day:

  • Lay down plastic sheets to minimize dirt being tracked into the house.
  • Lead the movers around the house and make sure they know all of your instructions.
  • Arrange to take milk, bread, snacks, coffee, tea, etc with you. It will be a long day.
  • In your new home, verify that the utilities have been turned on and that meters have been read.
  • The first priority for unpacking will be children’s rooms and basic kitchen and bathroom items.

We hope our moving tips help make your transition as easy as possible.
