Before You Move

Use this helpful checklist as a reminder of the things you need to do before you move.

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.

If you own your present home:

  • Arrange to have your gas, water, and electric meters read on the day you leave and have the bills forwarded to your new address.

  • Have your oil tank read and filled before your sale closes, and provide a receipt to your legal professional if required.

  • If the water heater or furnace is rented, arrange for a transfer of the rental agreement to the purchaser.

  • Disconnect your telephone, cable TV, and water softener.

If you rent your present home:

  • Give necessary written notice to your landlord and make arrangements for the return of any monies you have on deposit.

At your new home:

  • Make arrangements for the gas and electric utilities, water softener, telephone and cable TV to be connected on the day the sale closes.

General:

  • Get "Change of Address" cards from the post office and send out well before moving day (visit Canada Post's site)

  • 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.

  • Obtain a letter of introduction from your current branch to help establish new accounts. Transfer trust or bank accounts and securities.

  • Cancel or transfer social, athletic, civic, religious or business affiliations and memberships.

  • Arrange for transfer of medical, dental, prescription and optical records.

  • Change the address on your driver's license(s) effective the day of the move.

  • Collect all items out for cleaning, repair or storage. e.g. fur coats, dry cleaning.

  • Make special arrangements for the moving of perishables, such as plants.

  • Make special arrangements for the moving of your pets.

  • Dispose safely of all flammable liquids as it is illegal for movers to carry them.
