Removal Tips

  • Regard moving as an opportunity to get rid of belongings you no longer need. Consider making ”donate” and “sell” piles in each room for things you could do without.
  • People have a tendency to keep outdated paperwork for a very long time. Realise that paper is very heavy . Do yourself a favour and get rid of any outdated documents prior to moving..
  • Make sure you have a generous supply of packaging tape, scissors, markers and labels.
  • Defrost your refrigerator in time for moving day.
Moving In
  • Gather birth certificates, passports, etc. for everyone in your home and carry important documents with you on moving day.
  • Measure doorways, stairways, and elevators to make sure all your furniture will fit. Measure twice – move once!
  • Go grocery shopping on moving day so you don't have to keep ordering takeout.
  • Transfer your monthly services.
  • Confirm parking options for your moving truck - you may need a permit on moving day.
