  • Have a garage sale
  • Obtain medical and dental records
  • Ask your doctor and dentist for referrals and transfer prescriptions
  • Transfer your memberships
  • Fill out change of address forms
  • Record serial numbers of electronic equipment, if possible take pictures or video tape of your belongings

2 to 4 weeks before moving:

  • Reserve the service elevator if moving from an apartment
  • Transfer your newspaper and magazine subscriptions to your new address or discontinue delivery
  • Switch utility services to your new address – inform telephone, cable, hydro companies of your move
