So, you have decided to undertake one of the biggest steps you ever will and move to Ottawa? Well, there is a lot of planning and many tasks ahead of you before you have successfully completed moving from Toronto to Ottawa. You will have to plan the entire moving schedule along with things such as the packing process, doing the paperwork for transferring your children to their new schools, and many more. You can definitely expect to get stressed out and tired during this process if you try to do it all by yourself. However, the good news is that you do not have to do it by yourself. We are a professional moving company well versed in the craft of relocation and we are here to help you with our skills but also with our tips.

When preparing a move, there are some things that you simply must do. That is why we have prepared a list of core things you need to do to stress-free handle moving from Toronto to Ottawa.

Good organization is the key

In order to move with as little stress and complications as possible, you need to plan the move as best as you can. That means that you must not cut corners and that there is no room for slacking off. Moving your life from one city to another is a big deal. There is so much work to be done there and the process as a whole can be quite sensitive to outer factors. The best way to go about this is to put all the things you need to do on a piece of paper. So, basically what you are going to do is make a couple of lists. Through these lists, you will lay down the foundations for a simple, efficient, stress-free move.

The agenda, schedule, to-do list, however you call it, you need it

There are many synonyms for it, but the most effective name is the “to do list”. This is where the whole moving operation begins. As you start planning the move, you need to sit down with your spouse and other family members and start writing down all the ideas and thoughts you have about the whole moving process. Unless you are the only one moving, then the life schedules of all the people involved will require planning. Everyone will need to contribute in some way to the move, so creating a joining schedule is a necessity. Writing down a list of joint and individual tasks can be all be different lists, but they need to be in sync with the rest of the overarching plan.

Inventory list

One of the most important tools you will have as you plan your move is the inventory list. Some people think that it is overestimated, but based on our experience, having it can be a true lifesaver for a long distance move. Having complete control and being able to oversee where all of your things are is really important. Furthermore, having an inventory list will enable you to see which of your belongings you can get rid of. Whether you are going to donate them, sell them or throw them away, this will make your packing process significantly easier. Another thing you can and should do is to track carefully in which box you pack which item and mark it down on the inventory list. That way if you have a lot of belongings, you will be able to prioritize which boxes you will unpack first.

Prepare yourself for moving from Toronto to Ottawa, not just your belongings

It would surprise you how often people simply forget to pay proper attention to themselves when going through a move. While it is understandable, it is something you must avoid. Prepare yourself for the moving day and the days after that one. Firstly, check out the weather forecast. This is an important thing to do. If you are moving during the summer, you will a bottle of water and something sweet, just in case. Elderly folk and kids will also need this type of preventive care, as well as potentially some medicine.

The best way to cover this is to make an essentials kit for every member of the household. Basically, what you need to do is to pack a special box or even just a simple backpack of all the things each member will need on a moving day, and maybe even for the first few days. Things such as medicine, extra clothes, first-aid food such as power bars, water, and chargers for your telephones. Of course, this will vary from person to person, but the principle behind it is the same.
