When moving day approaches, it is common to experience that nagging feeling that something will be forgotten in the process. The best thing you can do to avoid any shortcomings is to do a final walkthrough of the home to ensure you haven’t left anything important behind.
No matter how organized you may be, there are some things that may be forgotten. Preparing a checklist can help you increase your success in completing all your moving tasks before you hand over your keys once and for all.

In the hustle and bustle of preparing for your move, you can almost always count on forgetting that low-priority task tucked away in the back of your mind or that important task you wrote down on a piece of paper that was left on top of the fridge.

While you are rushing to get your belongings packed and things in order, remember to follow these important steps:
- Cancelling recurring charges from monthly memberships
- Calling your insurance company weeks before your move to reevaluate home insurance
- Changing your address on all important documents, i.e. driver’s license and vehicle insurance policies
- Taking pictures of valuable items before the move
- Notifying your child’s school of the move
- Notifying your caregivers
- Transferring your utility account, phone number and cable/internet service to your new address
- Organizing a mail redirection to your new location
- Contacting the Canada Revenue Agency and Service Canada to update your contact info
- Tending to your pet’s needs
- Leaving the keys behind for the new tenants
