Planning your move smartly

1024 683 Nisha Muire
Moving from one Toronto home to another can either be daunting or a hassle-free endeavor – depending entirely on the amount of planning you put into it. The best way to ensure that your move goes smoothly is to plan it smartly. By “planning smartly” we mean setting up timelines and goals for each stage of the process. It is only with meticulous planning and prep that you will be able to achieve a stress-free move.
Once you have sold your home and you are anticipating moving into your brand new Toronto home, it is time to start planning. Make a list of all those items that need to be done before you leave your old residence. We’ve compiled a brief checklist of things you should plan for before you move:
2-3 month before:
Find movers
Sort your stuff into piles to give away, keep or sell
4 to 6 Weeks before moving
Set-up mail forwarding
Get boxes and moving supplies and begin packing
2 to 3 Weeks before moving
Get phone service set up at new home
Arrange for utilities at new home
Change address on driver’s licence
Get files and prescriptions from doctor
Change addresses on subscritions, clubs, associations
Alert family and friends on change of email address if applicable
2 to 7 days before moving
Pack a suitcase that you will be traveling with
Pack essentials
Clean premises
Day of move
Supervise movers
Walk through home to ensure nothing is missing
The more you do before your move date, the better off you’ll be when the big day arrives.
