IMPORTANT ARANGEMENTS TO MAKE PRIOR TO MOVING DAY
OTHER IMPORTANT CHANGE OF ADDRESSES
CLEAR ANY WALKWAYS:

RESERVE AN ELEVATOR & PLACE FOR PARKING:
Since a lot of the streets in Montreal are very narrow, full of parked vehicles on both sides, or winter conditions leaving very little room to find parking for a moving truck, with extended ramp, it is recommended to try to block of a parking spot outside your building as close as possible to allow the movers to work more quickly with less walking distance to incur a lower final moving cost. This can be done the evening before the move with vehicles or chairs attached by a long rope, and a sign attached advising there will be a move going on.
A lot of buildings will require you to reserve an elevator for a specific time slot,as there may be other moves going on in the same day, or there may only be 1 elevator in the building and it can not be reserved during peak hours. Reserving an elevator will allow the movers to perform a more efficient move, again cutting down the cost of the move. Make sure to arrange this ahead of time with your landlord or building manager.
BE PREPARED BEFORE MOVING DAY:
Dispose of as much trash and all unwanted items before moving day, clearing space for the move. Unwanted items can be sold or given away for free on Craigslist or Kijiji, given to Charity like The Salvation army or renaissance etc., or finally taken to the Eco centre.
