This is the second blog to our series ‘Moving to Edmonton.’ Our first blog is Moving To Edmonton: Pre-move Tips.
Congratulations, it’s moving day!
Although your house looks a little like a disaster zone, with packing tape and boxes everywhere, your family is excited to move to Edmonton.
Below are some of Edmonton Home Pros’ easy-to-follow tips for a smooth transition on moving day:
Lock away passports, birth certificates and important documents in a secure location. With all the commotion of packing, it can be easy for paperwork to get misplaced. From medical records to your pet’s vaccines, use your pre-move checklist to determine what documents you need. If necessary, take photocopies of everything and save them to a USB or your laptop. That way, if you misplace something you will always have an electronic copy.
Clear The Area.
Moving to Edmonton with children or pets can be an emotional and physical challenge. So, ask a friend to babysit your kids or watch your pets during moving day. It will be easier for you to wrap up loose ends, your kids will have more fun, and you won’t have to worry about your dog barking at the movers. To avoid a stressed out animal when you’re on the road, consider sedating your pet.
Were all the boxes loaded and unloaded to the moving truck? Don’t sign any paperwork until every box is accounted for. Being organized and straightforward will make the movers’ jobs easier. Create a floorplan of your new Edmonton home so they know where to put furniture. Also take note of damaged items or unexpected charges to your invoice. If you are moving to a different part of the city, Edmonton Home Pros can also help you sell your Edmonton home. Contact Stephen Lau for your complimentary Home Evaluation today!
