YOUR CALENDAR IS KEY
Planning ahead is a sure way to make your move a success. By understanding your time line, choosing the right day will become clearer. Give yourself enough time to plan for the upcoming steps leading towards your moving day.
KEEP OR DON’T KEEP?
That is the question! Moving day can be revealing, it’s the most common time you realize the amount of stuff you have. Don’t panic, take a deep breath….. This is when you will find that great piece you were looking for to compliment your living area in your new home, or that piece you can sell to your neighbor for a couple extra bucks towards your moving cost. Don’t want to sell? Your local charity will be thrilled to receive your donations. Keep or don’t keep, Check!
PACK AN OVERNIGHT BAG
Preparing for the day of and after your moving day should always be considered. Know your essentials for each family member to be comfortable for a couple of nights as the majority of your belongings will be packed away for safe transit. Begin the separation of your essentials so that it’s not packed away when you need it.
CHANGE YOUR ADDRESS
As simple as this may sound, it sometimes gets lost in the process of moving. Your new documents may take up to 4-6 weeks to complete, doing this ahead of time will ensure you moving into your new home with your new address attached. https://www.ontario.ca/page/change-address-drivers-licence-vehicle-permit-and-health-card Here is a link to Service Ontario to find out more and start your process.
GET AN ESTIMATE
Hiring the right mover or getting some friends is a decision you will have to make. As they both have their advantages, consulting with a professional can aid with making the right decision. Be sure to request written estimates and ask all questions that may concern you leading up to your moving day.
