Top 5 tips for moving home

Your papers are settled, you've packed, now it's only a matter of getting a moving truck and settling into your new place. Here are some helpful tips to speed up the process.

Let your landlord know in advance that you will be moving things out, and file the necessary papers a few days ahead. 

1. Patch up

Fill in holes made from drills. Give your place a preliminary cleaning and repair anything that you can. This will give you a little more of your deposit back, and will keep you from unexpected delays should your landlord decide to inspect the apartment.

2. List the things you're packing

This will come in handy, especially if you’re required to fill in move out or move in forms. Put together a master list of the boxes you have and the furniture you'll be taking with you. If you have the time, make it as detailed as possible including jotting down the contents of each box. If not, a few key words will do.

3. File the necessary papers

A number of condominiums require a move out and vehicle permit for your things, and will need the time to verify with the unit owner if there are items that should not be taken out, especially if you are coming from a furnished apartment. Let your landlord know in advance that you will be moving things out, and file the necessary papers a few days ahead. 

4. Double-check arrangements with moving vehicle

It's just a few extra minutes. Sometimes they may double book or forget to take down the time and date of your move. Call up the day before and make sure that they have the right amount of people, a truck and the right time.

5. Clean as you go

Give yourself an extra day to clean up the apartment. Make it as clean and dust-free as possible as a courtesy to your landlord and future tenants-to-be who would like to view it.
