Helpful Moving Tips


Book the movers. You can choose to have the movers pack everything, or just the breakables, or you can pack yourself. It’s a good idea to obtain estimates from several different companies.

Give necessary written notice to your landlord and make arrangements for the return of any monies you have on deposit, if you rent your old home.Make arrangements for the gas and electric utilities, water softener, telephone and cable TV to be connected on the day the sale closes. Dispose safely of all flammable liquids as it is illegal for movers to carry them.


  • Get "Change of Address" cards from the post office and send out well before moving day.
  • Have the post office forward your mail to your new address.
  • Cancel any contracted services and pre-authorized cheques.
  • Inform gardening, dry cleaning, garbage pick-up, newspapers, magazines, diaper and other home services. Arrange for service at your new address.
