George Garlin talks about Stuff

OK. Now let's get serious. Here is your moving checklist! Use this checklist to make sure you remember important moving dates and deadlines. Omega Toronto Movers taken the worry out of moving by thinking of nearly everything!

8 weeks before move

  • If you are planning a garage sale, set a date.
  • Arrange to transfer school records if you have children.
  • Discover schools in your new community by visiting on the World Wide Web.
  • Contact insurance companies to notify them of the move.
  • Start a "Move File" for all receipts, papers and estimates related to your move.

6 weeks before move

  • Select a Toronto moving company or any other GTA Movers you will use. Give them tentative pick-up and delivery dates.
  • If you are moving to a new city, be sure and ask your attorney, doctor and other providers for referrals and any necessary records.
  • If you have any pets, schedule a check-up and be sure and get a copy of their records from the veterinarian.
  • Set schedules with real estate agents and/or landlords.
  • Schedule a home inspection for your new home by calling AmeriSpec at 1-800-WE SERVE.

4 weeks before move

  • Schedule disconnect dates with your local utility company.
  • Notify new utility company of connect dates in the new home.
  • If you have a lawnmower or any other power equipment, drain them of oil and gasoline. Toronto Moving companies will not move them if they are full.
  • Cancel newspaper delivery and trash pickup effective on your move date.
  • Give your carpet a good cleaning before all of the furniture is moved into the new address by calling ServiceMaster at 1-800-WE SERVE.

1 week before move

  • Clean out refrigerator and defrost freezer.
  • Have your car serviced if you will be driving a long distance.
  • Confirm connect dates for utilities in your new home.
  • Transfer or close your checking account.
  • Be sure to get all items from your safe deposit box.

Moving day

  • Spend the entire day at home with the movers.
  • Carry any valuables or family heirlooms with you.
  • Right before the movers leave, take a final tour of your home, making sure nothing has been left in drawers or closets and that all doors and windows are locked.
  • Specify a "Do Not Move" area where you place items you do not want the movers to take with them.

At your new address

  • Obtain numbers needed in an emergency such as the fire department and police.
  • Check with post office to see if there is any mail that is being held for you.
  • Register your cars. Also, register to vote in your new area.
  • Enroll children in school.

Making the best of your moving day

  • Be ready when the Toronto/GTA movers arrive. Have everything ready to go, as you will be charged an hourly rate for the time the movers wait.
  • Make sure both your origin and destination locations are ready. If you are moving to an apartment, book the elevator in the apartment building and notify your landlord or building manager of the arrival time of your movers. Arrange for street parking if needed.
  • For long distance moves all items must be tagged and listed by the mover and a copy of the inventory supplied to you for your records. Be sure to keep a copy of this inventory. When you arrive at your new destination, check off each piece, and note any changes to the inventory prior to signing it. Otherwise, your Toronto mover may decline your claim for lost or damaged items.
  • For a local move, you should make an inventory of goods to be moved and supervise the loading and unloading or arrange for someone else to supervise. If goods are damaged or lost, make sure it's noted on the inventory, and notify the mover quickly.
  • When the loading has been completed, do a walk-through of your premises to ensure that everything has been loaded and nothing is left in closets, behind doors, in attics or garages.
  • Take any personal, important documents with you. Back up your computer data and take the data and the computer with you.
  • Take all of your valuables (e.g. jewellery, prescriptions, artwork) with you, and make special arrangements for perishables (e.g. food, plants) that may be affected by heat or cold. Make appropriate arrangements for your pets.
  • When the unloading has been completed, do a walk-through of your premises and all hallways and pathways into your premises as well as the moving vehicle to ensure that everything has been unloaded.
  • Enjoy your new home!
