Prepare Ahead
When moving house, you will have to organize many things ahead of time. Make a list of the things you have to do. Get plenty of packing material, think about the furniture and other belongings that you want to move, and the items you need to leave behind. If you have small children, or pets, for example, you will also have to organize care for them. Use Vancouver Movers’ Moving Checklist to have an overview of the things you need to take care of.

Moving boxes
You may have already bought your new home, but to get the moving process going, it is essential to get moving boxes and other packing material. You can choose from a wide range of quality boxes and other packaging when you contact Vancouver Movers or you may decide to get hold of moving boxes from shops in your neighborhood for example.

Communicating with your moving company
It is essential to choose a moving company that is willing to help you whenever you need advice, and with whom you can communicate effectively. Establish the date of moving well ahead, do not be afraid to discuss anything you need to know, and confirm the removal again a few days before the moving day as well, to avoid any misunderstandings. At Vancouver Movers, we always aim to provide advice and information our customers need, so do not hesitate to contact us.

Decide what to take and what to leave behind
You will not necessarily want to take everything with you. Make a list of the things you are definitely taking with you – It is also useful to have an inventory when you are unpacking, and it is a requirement at customs when you are moving abroad. Don’t just throw away the items you are leaving behind. Ask your relatives and friends if they want anything, give the things to charities, or organize a garage sale.

Think about your new home
Draw up a map of your new home. If it is considerably smaller than your current home for example, you definitely need to leave some things behind. If you start packing based on how you are planning to unpack in your new home, moving in will be much easier.

You can either order a professional packing service from Vancouver Movers, which is highly recommended if you are moving abroad, or if you have many fragile and valuable items, or you can decide to pack yourself. If you will be packing yourself, you should start packing your items a few weeks before the moving day, and go through everything systematically. Label moving boxes clearly, and pack essential items only in the last few days. Don’t put too many or too few items into one box.

Notify gas, electric, gas and water companies in advance
As you are changing address, you will have to notify these companies, banks, friends and relatives to send your mail to your new address. Notify your employer, and if you have any children, you will have to take care of changing schools as well.

Do not pack personal documents, jewelry and money
You might need these items during the removal, or while they are in storage. Don’t pack items that you will need right after you move in, or always keep track of where you are putting them.

Be present on the moving day
To ensure that everything goes as planned with the removal team, it is important to be present on time on the moving day, please contact Vancouver Movers in advance of any change or issue related to moving.

Check your old home once more
Check that you have not left any items behind. Also turn off gas, electricity and close all the windows
