Planning your move
Since we want to make sure your move is worry free, Here are are few tips to help you prepare in advance. A step-by-step planning and organization of professional moving will make your relocation day easier.
1 Month Before Moving
- Take a whole walk through of your house and make a decision on what to throw away, donate or sell at a garage/yard sale
- Start making plans to use all the food items you have that cannot be taken with you.
- Begin cleaning out the basement, attic and all closets in the house.
When you’re ready to start packing, make a plan for each room. You can avoid a big headache later if you don’t mix items from different rooms in the same box. Use a wardrobe box for your closet, and a suitcase for clothing in your dresser. You should also consider;
- Using packing tape instead of duct tape
- Packing important documents separately….health records, passports, insurance, etc.
- Clearly labelling all boxes on the top
- Packing electronics in there original box…computers, stereos, televisions, etc.
- Making a checklist of items that you will need right after the move and you should pack this last
2 Weeks Before Moving
- Change your address with the post office, bank, credit cards, and any subscriptions you have.
- Notify your insurance company of your location for health, fire, auto, life.
- Notify the gas, light, water, telephone, cable and internet companies for cancellation or transfer of service.
- Ask your family physician and dentist for referrals; refill prescriptions, health records, etc.
On Moving Day
- Have enough cash or credit to cover the cost of the moving service and expenses.
- Carry jewelry and valuable documents yourself.
- If you have pets, make appropriate space to avoid an unhappy animal
- Let a close neighbour, friend or relative know the route you plan to take and your schedule of stops. Keep him or her in the loop during your move.
- Make a final check of every room, closet, cupboard and storage area.
- Leave old keys for the new tenant with the real estate agent.
