Things to do Before Moving Out of Your Apartment

Moving out of your apartment can be an exciting time. Let us help you through the work that’s ahead of you so that it goes smoothly. Here are some tips on the things you need to do before moving out of your apartment.

Let’s Get Cleaning

We know cleaning your apartment before moving out might not be at the top of your priority list, but it’s advisable that you do it, so put on some tunes and get busy cleaning. While you are at it, you can assess if there are minor damages that you could take care of yourself.

Switch the utility bills

Your new apartment is ready and waiting for you, but wait! Did you remember to switch over your utility bills and all of your service providers? Reach out to your respective providers to figure out all the logistics. You don't want to move into an apartment without electricity! Most companies allow you to keep your utilities on in two locations - just in case your leases overlap, but be sure to cancel the old apartment as soon as you no longer need it.

Return keys

Before packing all of your things up, make sure you put the keys to your old apartment in a safe spot and one you will remember. Your landlord will need these back, and you want to make sure you don't have to go on a full out search for them.

Ensure your mail follows you

Whether you're moving a couple of blocks away or to another state, you want to make sure your mail is going to the right address, which can quickly be done online. Use Canada Post's Mail Forwarding service, which allows you to forward your personal or business mail from your Canadian address to anywhere in the world.
