There are a lot of things to move besides your residence when relocating to a new home. The basic items are:
It is recommended that you apply for mail forwarding form Canada Post 30 days prior to your new move in date at your new residence. Minimum time to apply is 3 days…but don’t wait that long, we are talking about Snail Mail.
Visit the Canada Post website to learn more about mail forwarding and pricing from Canada Post.
This basically involves everyone you make payments to…it’s all your bills:
Better make sure you notify them as early as possible as to your new address. Ask them when your statements are generated and depending on when that is will be a guideline as to when you should have them change your mailing address.
These are the companies that may be automatically debiting your accounts but you still need to make sure they switch or cancel your service. Make sure you notify your
and let them know the date you are moving out and the address of your new home. Sometime during the closing procedure, the agents will make the utility switches for you but you need to ask and find out which ones. The last thing you want is to be on the hook for someone else’s hydro bill!
There can be lots of these such as School records, Health Records, Driver’s License, Voter registration, Health Card, Doctors, Accountants, Lawyers, Revenue Canada and of course your boss.
Do you belong to any charities, clubs, and associations? Don’t forget to notify them.
If you shop online (and who doesn’t these days), you will want to edit any “auto Fill” programs you have so the new shoes you just bought get shipped to the right address.
Ok so last but certainly not least, notify your friends and family of your new address (or not depending on how good the friends and family are??).
A great idea is to get some card stock and print out your new address and give them out like a business card. Another great idea is to make these cards into fridge magnets so people won’t lose them. Send out an email with your new info or business card attached. Make sure any places you shop online have your new address as well.
