Moving Day tips
Know your building rules – Landlords may have specific time restrictions or curfews for tenants moving in and out. Make sure you know the rules for both your old and new building.
Clearly label your boxes – Labelling all the things you’re moving will make packing and unpacking easier, especially for essentials like toiletries and important documents.
Move everything you can yourself – It may be really difficult to find movers on Moving Day so try to move smaller and more delicate items yourself.
Check your tenant insurance – Make sure your tenant insurance covers your new home in case anything goes wrong.
Check and recheck your old place – Because moving day can be stressful, check every cupboard and closet to ensure you’re not forgetting anything.
Recycle what you don’t need – If you have electronics, tires, construction materials, or stuff like old paint, take it to an eco-centre so it doesn’t end up in a landfill.
