Knowing whom to notify and when is an overwhelming and daunting task when moving. It takes the average Canadian over eight (8) hours to connect with, notify, transfer, cancel or install services associated with a pending move and those are the ones you remember. Over the years of helping people move I have recognized address changes to be one of the most frustrating steps to accomplish; as a result moveeasy has researched, collected and  simplified this process to save you time, energy and sanity. It will also ensure that no one is forgotten to be notified of your upcoming move.

Provided is a list of organizations, websites, contact information, when to notify, information you are required to have on hand when notifying as well as other helpful notes or hints. Additional documents are attached and links to outside sites are set up for your convenience.
