Planning Your Move

Arrange the date of your move to fall within the first three weeks of the month, to avoid the peak moving times at the end of the month. Whenever possible, you should try to allow 2 or 3 weeks between the date you take possession of your new residence (earlier) and the date you vacate your present residence (later). This will alleviate much of the stress of moving.

There are several benefits concerning the logistics of this scenario. First, it allows you more time for packing and related preparations. It gives you the opportunity to pre-move some articles, and belongings ahead of your move date. Renovators and/or trades-people can be hired ahead of your move-in date. It allows you time to schedule your move to occur in-between the two dates - for the purpose of returning, for last-minute details, or making arrangements for cleaning the premises. These are all substantial benefits that will far outweigh any additional cost.

There are, of course, opportunities where its to your advantage to vacate early, to accommodate the buyer in the quick-sale of your house, for instance. If your new home or condo is under renovations or construction, and is not ready to move into until a later date, we have storage facilities to accommodate your furnishings in the interim period.

If you have high expectations for your move - were counting on it!
