Relocating to/in Vancouver (part 2)
You bought a new home in Vancouver and you have to move. This can be frustrating for the new homebuyer. To make this part easier develop a checklist of all the things that will be required to make the move. Below are some considerations.

At your new home:
Make arrangements for the gas and electric utilities, water softener, telephone and cable TV to be connected on the day the sale closes.

Get "Change of Address" cards from the post office and send out well before moving day.
Have the post office forward your mail to your new address.
Cancel any contracted services and pre-authorized cheques.
Inform gardening, dry cleaning, garbage pick-up, newspapers, magazines, diaper and other home services. Arrange for service at your new address.
Obtain a letter of introduction from your current branch to help establish new accounts. Transfer trust or bank accounts and securities.
Cancel or transfer social, athletic, civic, religious or business affiliations and memberships.
Arrange for transfer of medical, dental, prescription and optical records.
Change the address on your driver's license(s) effective the day of the move.
Collect all items out for cleaning, repair or storage. e.g. fur coats, dry cleaning.
Make special arrangements for the moving of perishables, such as plants.
Make special arrangements for the moving of your pets.
Dispose safely of all flammable liquids as it is illegal for movers to carry them.
