Take some of the strees out of moivng by following these helpful tips!! 


Moving can be a stressful experience as we all know.  From coordinating all of your utilities to the move itself, there is a lot to accomplish in a little time.




After the sale or purchase of a home and the closing day is set,   you'll want to make the proper notifications to people of your new address.  Start with your utilities and have them all switched to the new address, including water, electric, gas, telephone, cable/satellite TV and your internet provider.


If you have school aged children, be sure to change their registration and notify Canada Pension if applicable.  You will also need to change the address on your driver's license, vehicle registration, health card and any other service providers including insurance, doctors and dentists.   Don't forget to file a change of address form with the post office to ensure you continue to receive mail that is sent to your old address.


Leave behind:


The new owners of your home will really appreciate you leaving a few things behind.  These include owner's manuals for appliances left in the home and any warranties etc, for items included in the sale.  Don't forget to leave any extra keys, garage door openers, along with any codes for alarms etc.  If the security system is a rental, arrangements must be made prior to closing.  If your mail is delivered to a super box, please contact Canada Post directly.  They will make arrangements to have new keys delivered to your home and assign a box number to you. 


Make the move:


Moving day can be long and tiring.  Don't put un-due pressure on yourself by thinking you will start unpacking on the other end.  Instead, pack a small back with any items your family may need to get you through the night, assemble the beds and have a good night's sleep in your new home.  There's lots of time to unpack tomorrow!
