Preparing for Your Move to a Mississauga House
There's going to be a lot of activity in the real estate market here in the city when the warmer spring weather arrives. If you are planning on a move to a Mississauga house in the coming months, here is a quick checklist for you to use 4 to 6 weeks prior to the move to help keep things simple.
Make your list and check it twice
This is the time to start your planning. The easiest way to go about it is to create a to-do list that includes special tasks that will need to be done such as organizing storage, canceling your utilities and filling out your change of address postal forms.
Hold a garage sale
Earn a bit of extra money to help pay for the move by organizing a garage sale. This will give you a good excuse to clean out your closets, shelves and cupboards so that you can make some much-needed money to help with the move.
Book a date with a moving company
Now's the time to make sure that you secure a moving date with the company. These companies can book up months in advance and if you haven't already, it's time to phone around and get some estimates.
Send out your notifications
Tell your utility company, alarm company, lawn service provider and any other service companies you may use about your upcoming move. You'll also want to start sending out the change of address forms with Canada Post so that your mail will be forwarded as soon as you move into your new Mississauga home.
Organize a cleanup
It's time to get your home as clean as possible so that your cleaning tasks on moving day won't be overwhelming. Call in a cleaning service if you need help with the job.
Start using up your frozen food
Take stock of the food in your freezer and start using it up. Avoid purchasing any new food that you feel would still be hanging around after moving day.
These tips will help you get started for your spring or summer move. It's time to start planning now for your upcoming move to a Mississauga house so that moving day is kept as simple and as organized as possible.
