Practical advice

The following recommendations will not only ease the stress of moving but also reduce your cost as you are usually billed on an hourly basis

Selecting a moving company

  • To verify his inscription in the « Registre des Entreprises du Québec » (REQ)
  • To verify with the « Office de la Protection du Consommateur » (OPCQ) if there is any complaint about him
  • Verify if their trucks and equipment look safe and clean
  • Ask friends, family or co-workers for references
  • Ask what type of Insurance coverage they have (donc pas de changement)
  • To verify what happens if they break or loose something. Is there any franchise to pay? If so, what amount?
  • Once you have selected your moving company:

  • Agree on your date and time for moving
  • Have the departure and arrival addresses on hand for the movers
  • Make sure you receive a written contract before moving date
  • A few weeks before moving:

  • Accumulate boxes and paper for packing
  • Pack rarely used objects
  • Identify on each box its contents and the room at destination
  • Clearly identify boxes containing "fragile" items or to be manipulated with special care
  • Make sure you have advised various services such as insurer, telephone, cable, etc. as to the date you are moving
  • A few days before moving:

  • Make sure all items are packed and boxes clearly identified and secured
  • Attach lose items such as brooms and curtain rods
  • Place all your boxes in a single room on the first floor, preferably grouped by rooms at destination
  • You can leave your clothing in your drawers
  • Disconnect electrical appliances such as stove, dishwasher, etc.
  • Dismantle any items which may be cumbersome to your move, such as bed frames and any other furniture.
  • Moving day:

  • If possible, obtain the keys to the elevator
  • Supervise the movers
  • Verify your furniture before they leave and note any breakage or scratches. If a problem arises make sure the person responsible for moving your belongings is made aware of the situation and document the information
  • Reserve a parking space in front of the moving location, for the moving truck
  • Notify the following services of your move:

  • Post office
  • Telephone
  • Internet service company
  • Alarm company
  • Electricity and natural gas companies
  • Cable company
