When you're packing up your loft for sale in Toronto in preparation for the move to Saint Norbert, don't forget to go down to the post office and pick up a change of address form - or go online to the post office website and fill one out there. You may not think it's that important, but don't you want to keep important mail like your bank statements and tax returns out of the hands of the strangers who now own your home? The following tips will help make your change of address run more smoothly.
Before the move, make sure to phone, email, or fill out a change of address form with all important sources of mail, including the provincial government (for driver's license and registration forms), the federal government (for tax packages, voting information, and benefits), your bank, and any businesses you regularly deal with. This will ensure that future mail goes to your new address, not your empty homes for sale in Vaughan.
Of course, not everyone remembers every source of their mail, so it's a good idea to also sign up for the mail forwarding service with Canada Post. You can sign up online, at the post office near your Markham homes for sale, or in the post office in Saint Norbert when you arrive. The mail forwarding service will allow you to have mail for four separate individuals or families forwarded to your new address. The cost is as little as 30 cents per day and you can choose to have mail forwarded for six months or a full year. The only drawback is that it takes a little longer for your mail to arrive.
Canada Post also has a business mail forwarding service which is useful whenever you decide to lease or buy industrial space in Toronto for your business. By using business mail forwarding, you can be sure you won't miss any important communications from clients or suppliers. You can put two businesses or two individual names on each forwarding request. The service takes affect after ten days from the submission of the request and works both internationally as well as in Canada.
If you are only relocating temporarily and don't want to go through the hassle of changing all your addresses, you should choose the temporary mail forwarding or mail holding services. Temporary forwarding is good for vacations and when your Brampton real estate agent's offices have to move temporarily because of building damage. It costs about $13.50 per month. Mail holding, on the other hand, is for when you won't be able to receive mail where you are or are moving too frequently for mail to keep up. It costs about $10 per week.
