Moving to a new city can be overwhelming. If you are new to the city and looking for movers in Toronto, let us start by saying, “Welcome!”

We want to begin your new experience with a comfortable and smooth move that will have you settled into your new place and ready to start your new life.

If you are looking online for “movers near me” because you live in the great city of Toronto, or if you are new and are looking for a moving company in Toronto, Rent-a-Son can accommodate you. We help people relocate both in and out of the city, and we do it with care.

What to Do Before You Move to Toronto

1. Create a Moving Checklist

This should be the first thing you do and will help keep things organized.

2. File for Change of Address

This is a necessary second step.  Your driver’s license and your health card will need to be updated along with all your utilities and service providers.

3. Book a Moving Company in Toronto at Least two weeks in Advance

First, you have to pick a day to move. Then, you need to choose a reputable company with qualified movers in Toronto to give you peace of mind that everything will go well on the big day.

4. Clear Your House of All Unwanted Junk

Cleaning your house of unneeded items will help with packing and will save you time and money during your move.

5. Decide Whether You Want to Pack or Not

If you want to pack things yourself, you better make up your mind quickly. If you choose to opt out of packing, we can accommodate you with our packing/unpacking services.

6. Let Service Providers Know Your Moving

This is another must if you want to watch cable TV or have internet access on your first night in your new home.

7. Make Arrangements for Your Pets

Pets can get in the way of movers. Having someone watch them for the day is a simple way to ensure a safe and stress-free moving day.

What to Do After You Move to Toronto

1. Setup/Organize Your House

The first task will be setting up your new home. We can help get you started with our unpacking service and furniture assembly.

2. Change Your Locks

You don’t know who may have a key to your new home, so change your locks for your safety.

3. Get Your Pets Acclimated

Like you, pets are in a new environment and need to get used to their surroundings. Here are some tips on how to get pets acclimated in their new home.

4. Transfer Utilities

No home runs without heat, water, and electricity.

5. Update Important Documents

This is crucial. It doesn’t need to be done immediately but should be done within the first week.

6. Set Up a Security System

Have peace of mind in your new home with a security system.

7. Immerse Yourself into the Community

Moving into a big, new city can be intimidating. Join local clubs and groups, and introduce yourself to the new neighbours to start making connections.
