Moving To Edmonton Tips

Fri, 28 Dec by edmontonhomepros

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:

Important Documents.
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.

Moving to Edmonton can be stressful, let Edmonton Home Pros guide you in what to do.

Movers.
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!

Stay Organized. Staying organized is crucial when moving. Label your boxes accordingly, so you know where they belong. Create lists of items you will take and how they are being transported. Build a timeline and set deadlines or reminders for yourself.

Declutter. Even if you are on hiring a moving company, decluttering your house will save you time and energy. Ask yourself, “will I truly use this?” If not, its safe to say you can leave it behind. Host a Moving Sale months before and use the money to cover your moving expenses. Anything you don’t sell can be donated to a local Goodwill.

Pack Light. Keep your boxes light and organized. Many people make the mistake of cramming multiple items into one bin. This could lead to serious injury for the person carrying the boxes. Place bubble wrap between breakable items and group them together. The same applies to your suitcases, keep them light.
