Hire the right movers

You are moving your valuable possessions.  Don’t choose the cheapest company – choose a quality company.  Check out the Better Business Bureau for their rating, see if they are members of the Canadian Association of Mover, and be sure they have a good reputation.  Do your homework to ensure you hire a quality service provider to do your move.

Familiarize yourself with your new space

This will provide you with comfort because you will know how to move around your new home and can plan how to unpack accordingly. The size of the space and the number of rooms are things you should familiarize yourself with so you can plan where to place the boxes and make things easier on yourself. Boxes should be placed throughout the home strategically so that you have enough room to walk through your new home safely.

Keep your essentials by your side

Any medications or a first-aid kit should be easily accessible, so do not pack them away and place them in a bag that you can carry by your side. Ask family members and friends to help with the packing process and try to do this in an organized fashion so that unpacking is easy. Make sure to ask them in advance so that you are ready come moving day and don’t forget to gather the right supplies like boxes and packing tape (your Sales professional can help with this).

Don’t be afraid of change

Moving is not easy and it’s common for seniors to feel nervous about this change. These feelings are very natural and it’s important that you deal with any mixed emotions so that you are ready to start a new chapter.
