Let’s Get Moving Checklist

Two Months Before Moving Day

Book your move with our full-service Toronto moving company before our calendar fills up. For larger relocations or  commercial moves, the sooner you schedule your moving day, the better we can accommodate your preferred date preference.  Contact one of our customer support representatives to customize your moving plan to adjust to your budget, deadlines, and moving services required, such as moving labour, transportation, packing services, or storage options.

Get Your Move Organized!

  • Create a file with your moving details, documents, receipts, and more.
  • Start eating frozen food or condiments that you do not want to take with you.
  • Create an inventory list, separated by categories, for all your belongings. These categories should include items to keep, throw away, or donate before your move.
  • Make a list of all the people and organizations you need to notify about your upcoming relocation and change of address. This list should include friends, employers, creditors, subscriptions, etc.
  • Make necessary preparations for storage, if needed. Our storage facility in Toronto has a variety of storage options to select from.  
  • Gather all of your personal records, including finances, the house deed, insurance, medical records, legal documents, school records, stocks, vehicle registration, wills, and other important papers. Place these documents in a secure and easily accessible bag or box.

Five Weeks Before Moving

  • Submit a “Change of Address” form to the Post Office.
  • Call and confirm dates to disconnect and connect all utilities, including cable, electric, gas, internet, oil, trash collection, and water, to your new residence. Remember to keep utilities connected at your current home until the end of your moving day.
