Spring Moving Checklist
Planning a Spring move? Did you know that more people move or plan to move in Spring than in any other season? While it can be a daunting task, when you follow our moving checklist, packed with helpful tips and a timeline, you can ensure a smooth and safe move.
Make a list, create a file
The first step is knowing everything that has to be done and giving yourself time to do it. At 8 weeks before your planned move, you should create a physical file with all move-related documents such as moving quotes, contracts for any repairs that need to be done (in the new home or the one you’re leaving). At the same time, create digital copies of all essential personal documents and back them up in the cloud so, if things get misplaced during the move, you can open any device and have access to everything.
Get medical and school referrals
7 weeks before you’re scheduled to move out is the ideal time to find referrals for new doctors, dentists and schools in the area you’re moving to. After making initial contact, arrange for all medical and school records to be transferred. It’s best not to leave this until the move or you may find yourself inconvenienced by having to track things down.
Prep and purge
With your planned move 6 weeks away, start purging items or else you’ll find yourself paying to move things you don’t need. Arrange to recycle and donate any items that are still in good condition to a charity or thrift shop.
Reserve those movers
Don’t wait until the last moment to get the best price and time slot on a movers or a moving truck. Be sure to reserve moving services at least 5 weeks in advance of moving day.
Time to get smart
With your move 4 weeks or less away, it’s an ideal time to create the smart home of your dreams for so little with ADT by TELUS. Make sure you, your family and your home are safe and secure as soon as you move in with affordable smart home components, including:
