provide them with a change of address. Arrange with the post office to
have mail forwarded to your new address.

Buyers and their agent need to do a walk-through before 12 noon on possession day.
If there are no problems, the agent will notify your lawyer and the transaction
is completed by noon.

Tips For Packing

  1. Develop a “to do” list so you won't forget anything important.
  2. Get rid of items you no longer need. Have a garage sale or donate them to a charity.
  3. Pack similar items together. Put toys with toys etc.
  4. Decide what you will move yourself. ie: photos, valuables, etc.
  5. Use the correct box for the item.
  6. Heavy items should go in small boxes so they're easier to lift. Keep box weight to under 50 lbs.
  7. Wrap fragile items individually and pad sides of boxes.
  8. Label each box on all sides. You don't know how they will be stacked.
  9. Colour-code labels to indicate which room each item should go in. Color-code a floor plan of the new home to help movers.
  10. Keep all moving documents in a file, including telephone numbers, driver's name, and van number. Keep your address books with you.
  11. Back up computer files.
  12. Inspect all boxes and furniture for damage upon arrival.
  13. Remember, most moving companies won't take plants.

   Plus, if you're moving out of town:

  1. Get medical and dental record copies, plus prescriptions for your family and pets.
  2. Take copies of children's school records.
  3. Consider special needs for you pets when traveling by car.
  4. Let a friend know your route.
  5. Carry an ATM card for obtaining cash until you can open a bank account.
  6. Close your safety deposit box.
  7. Plants should go in boxes with holes for air circulation if you're traveling in cold weather.
