July 1st is often associated with moving day. Whether you are a homeowner or a renter, here are some tips on how to save money and live this moment as peacefully as possible.
If you are using a moving company, get different estimations in order to choose the one that suits your needs best.
Consider choosing a different date and moving outside the busy season. Your wallet will thank you
Did you know that many businesses offer free boxes? A great way to save money and be eco-friendly by recycling them. Above all, don’t wait until the last minute to pack up your things.
There’s no need to stuff unnecessary items in your new location. Make the most of it by sorting and selling what you no longer use.
Do not hesitate to ask your friends and family for help. There’s nothing like their support (and their helping hand) to make a successful move. Don’t forget to treat them to a nice meal or a cold beer.
Remember to change your address for all the major agencies: Canada Post, Ministère du Revenu du Québec, Canada Revenue Agency, Health Insurance Board, your financial and credit institution, Hydro-Quebec, Metropolitan Gas, cable company, internet provider, home and car insurance company, accountant or notary, employer
Happy moving day!
