How to Prepare for Moving Day with Discount & Toujours Mikes!

Quebec marks July 1st as the official "Moving Day," so whether you're moving long distance within the province or upgrading to a new space right around the corner, you'll want to mark this date on your calendar and have everything set up and ready to go before the big day arrives. The housing market is high and many people will be moving this summer, so start checking items off your list of to-dos to prepare for a seamless move.

Some Tips for a Smooth Moving Day

Start packing, label your boxes, and calculate those moving costs. Preparing for your move takes careful planning and organization, no matter if you're hiring a moving company or having friends and family help you out. You're not alone if you're losing sleep wondering how to prepare for Moving Day. So, here are some tips to keep in mind when you're making your plans to ensure everything goes smoothly on the day of your move.

Keep Your Movers Fed With a Pizza Promo

Keep your movers motivated with some delicious pizza as they help you get the job done. Toujours Mikes teamed up with Discount Rental to make preparing for the big day easier than ever. Everyone who rents a truck receives a promo code for a free medium Neapolitan pizza at Toujours Mikes. Treat your movers to thank them for helping you get through your moving day so you can settle comfortably into your new place. The promo is live now until the end of July 2021.

Make a List of the Little Things

Your work isn't done when the moving truck pulls away. Take the stress out of last-minute essential tasks by creating a list you can track so you can prioritize your time — and make sure you don't find yourself gasping when you realize you forgot something at your last place the moment you step inside your new home. Tasks to go on this list include things like:

  • Cleaning off the shower gunk.
  • Emptying the refrigerator and freezer.
  • Taking out the last trash bags.

Keep Basic Cleaning Supplies On Hand

You may want (or need) to do some touch-ups after all the moving boxes are out the door. Keep basic cleaning supplies like sanitizing wipes and a broom and dustpan off to the side so they don't accidentally get loaded onto your moving truck. Once your space is empty, you can see if you need to do any last-minute cleaning before you lock the doors for the last time.

Pack a Go Bag

A "go bag" is just a small suitcase, tote bag, or even box that holds the essentials you'll need on the day you move and the next day. Like your cleaning supplies, keep that go bag off to the side in a designated place or in your car so it doesn't accidentally end up on the truck. Some items that should go in your go bag include:

  • A few sets of clothes.
  • Important documents
  • Medications.
  • Phone chargers.
  • Toiletries.
  • Valuables.

With Moving Day right around the corner, it's time to start planning your moving process. You're ready for a smooth Moving Day when you follow these tips!
