Start getting ready for the big day as soon as possible
Start getting ready as soon as you know your moving day. And on the big day, don’t forget your water bottles!
To help you remember everything, we suggest you print this to-do list and keep it in plain view. Have fun checking items off!
As soon as you know your moving day, book a mover. Take some time to shop around. Prices vary from one moving company to another.
If you decide to move yourself, book a truck.
Collect boxes, labels, tape and markers. And above all, don’t forget to invite friends and family to help out.

Notify the Service québécois de changement d’adresse
On the big day, pack a box of things you’ll need for your first night and morning at your new address.
If you don’t have a communicating meter, don’t forget to read the meter before you move out and submit the reading. Do the same at your new address.

A great opportunity to save energy... and money!
A move is a great time to adopt new energy-saving habits, like installing electronic thermostats, plugging air leaks and replacing household appliances with more energy-efficient models. Also, before you move, it’s always a good idea to estimate your new home’s consumption.
Good luck with your move!
