· Remember to contact your local post office and fill-out forwarding address forms.
· Notify your telephone, hydro, cable and internet company.
· Do not have your land line phone disconnected until after loading day, unless you have a cell phone.
· Reserve ample parking for the truck. In the winter, be sure to have the parking area and walkways clear of snow and ice. If
you live on a tight street where parking might be a problem for the truck, simply call the city at 311 and they will set you up with a permit.
· Notify the building management of your moving day/time, reserve the elevator.
· Prepare an “Unload First” carton with essentials that you’ll need immediately at your new home (Essential Items). Include a bag filled with hardware from disassembled items, such as dresser mirrors and beds.
· Try to keep boxes to 50 pounds or less and always lift with your legs. Tape the bottom of all boxes to make certain they will hold your belongings.
· Pack books flat, not standing on end (which may cause damage to the spines). Books are extremely heavy, so don’t pack too many in one box.
