So now that we'e received the great news that our PR has been approved we need to start making plans for the big move!! My first question, probably of many, is about accommodation? We are a family of 2 adults and 4 young children. So the picture is of all of us just landed in Halifax scurrying to get all the luggage together without losing one of the kids in the process and then stepping out of the airport... What now??? We are thinking of renting a place from day one so that we can head over there directly from the airport because a stay in a hotel for a couple of days would be just too expensive for 6 people. So then we need to decide where we will rent a place, what size, furnished or unfurnished... Where do we start looking for a place? I have seen nice looking places on kijiji.ca but I have no idea if the pictures tell the whole story. How do I know they aren't hiding a big whole in the roof in the middle of the bedroom? If we take a furnished place it is inevitable that our kids destroy the furniture and beautiful decorations that are so sentimental to the owner, so unfurnished it is. The problem with that is we then need at least beds for all of us for the first couple of days before we can find out where to start shopping. So, should we order beds and bedding via Walmart online to deliver the day we arrive or does anyone have any other suggestions? How do we know what we need, will it be warm enough and so forth? Secondly, we need food, and eating out every meal for a couple of days might sound good to New Yorkers, but we prefer to cook what we eat. So we need cooking and eating cutlery and crockery. Once again the Walmart option comes to mind? Thirdly, we need clothes as those that we bring from SA will most likely not be suitable. Where do you suggest we start shopping for kids clothes? Any ideas or tips on how to make the landing easier will be very much appreciated.
Hi all, My fiance and I are moving to Vancouver in July and we are in the process of trying to find a small furnished apartment to rent. We are still on the job hunt so area is a bit confusing at the moment - however, we have our eye on Kits and maybe North Vancouver. We have picked up a lot of scams on Craigslist so we would like to avoid that if possible. I see a site called Rent-it-Furnished has some nice listings - has anyone used this site? Any other great sites or rental companies anyone could suggest? We are bringing our two Boston Terriers over as well so any advice on the pet side of things would be greatly appreciated - housing and transport Thanks!
