10 tips for a successful move

Les 10 astuces pour un déménagement réussi

You've decided to move and want everything to go smoothly? Here are our top 10 tips for organizing a successful move. Whether you're a seasoned mover or moving for the first time, these practical tips will help you simplify the process and reduce the stress associated with this important step in your life.

1. Plan ahead
Draw up a detailed schedule of tasks to be completed before, during and after the move to avoid last-minute unforeseen events.

2. Sort it out
Take the opportunity to declutter your space by getting rid of objects you no longer need or want. You can sell them according to their condition, find a buyer among your friends and family, or donate them to community services in your area.

3. Bundle strategically
Before you even start packing, you can begin to organize and categorize your items. For example, baskets or bins containing everything you need for your hair, another for your make-up and so on. This way, when you have to pack your belongings in your moving boxes, it'll be quicker and you'll also save time when settling into your new home.

4. Pack methodically
Use different sized boxes for ease of transport, and label them clearly so you know what's inside. This will help you know which box to unpack more quickly.

Another tip: to save time, write on the box the room you want the box to go in. This way, the people who will be helping you during the move will know where to take it.

5. Protect your fragile goods
Carefully wrap fragile items in bubble wrap or newspaper to prevent breakage during transport.

Another tip: use your own hand towels, washcloths and dishcloths for environmentally-friendly packing.

6. Call in the professionals
If you need help transporting your belongings, don't hesitate to call in professional movers for a worry-free move. You can also hire a babysitter if your children are young.

7. Inform the relevant organizations
Don't forget to notify your change of address to the various organizations (bank, insurance, energy suppliers, etc.) to avoid any inconvenience. You can visit this site to help you complete most of your address changes quickly: Service québécois de changement d'adresse et au Canada.

8. Prepare a first-aid kit
Keep a first-aid kit handy, containing medicines, bandages and anything else you might need in an emergency.

9. Get organized for the big day
Make a list of the tasks you'll need to complete on moving day to ensure that everything goes smoothly.

10. Take care of yourself
Don't forget to take regular breaks and stay hydrated to avoid the fatigue and stress of moving.

By following these 10 essential tips, you can be sure of a stress-free and successful move. Once you've settled into your new home, take the time to celebrate this new stage in your life.
