It’s Moving Day… What to Expect?

Moving Day

A few weeks before the move, you donned your ‘octopus uniform’ and began the enormous task of getting all of the preparatory jobs done.

The family’s belongings have been edited down, donated or packed, labeled and sorted into boxes that have been designated for each room. The post office has been notified and forwarding address cards have been sent.

Canada Post: Fort Erie Location
55 Jarvis Street
Fort Erie, Ontario L2A 2S0
Telephone: 1-866-607-6301

Newspapers have been cancelled. Service companies, gas, electric, cable, phone, internet, has been notified concerning both places.

Town of Fort Erie: 905-871-1600

Canadian Niagara Power: 905-871-0330

Enbridge: 905-688-9133

Cogeco Cable Services: 1-800-267-9000

So, what is on the menu for the helpers and the family once you arrive at your destination? They will be tired, possibly cranky and definitely hungry. The children have been registered at their new schools.  (For schools in Fort Erie, check out https://www.forterie.ca/pages/EducationandLearning). 

The moving company, or rental van with helpers and equipment have been settled.

Some moving companies:

2 Men & A Truck: 905-641-2636

Bird’s Moving: 905-682-2646

Harvey Moving: 905-688-2125

 Arrangements have been planned to safely contain the animals until settled in your new accommodations. The former house has been scrubbed so that your reputation will not be tarnished and now it is time to climb into this new adventure.

Before anything is unpacked it is a good idea to have previously researched the local take-out/delivery restaurants. Workers are more cheerful when they are appreciated and their bodies are fed.

Once the first half of the job is done, make beds and relax with the family and friends.

Tomorrow will bring the rest of the story.

My family and I enjoy traveling and experiencing new places the world has to offer, boating on Lake Erie and the Niagara River and golfing on many of the excellent Fort Erie courses. Fort Erie was “the” place to grow up. We had a little place to hang out called “Crystal Beach”. Even with those days behind us, we still have these great things and many more! Fort Erie is a small quaint community with a large geographical area, allowing room to grow. Our town has great proximity to Buffalo, Niagara Falls and other major cities such as; Toronto, Hamilton, Burlington and so much more. Fort Erie is a great place to raise a family or retire.
