The Essentials of Moving Into Your New Barrel Yards Home

Friday, February 1st, 2019

Moving can be a stressful time for most, but it can also be one of the most rewarding and exciting times in your life. When your moving day finally arrives, we want you to feel confident in knowing that you are as prepared as possible as you hold the key to your new home at The Barrel Yards.

We’ve outlined the important details you should know before beginning your journey with us below.

Become familiar with your new community

Moving into a new area brings along a whole new set of challenges. Whether you are starting fresh in a new city or relocating to a different part of town, The Barrel Yards will welcome you home with open arms. As a new resident of The Onyx or The Cooperage, enjoy the vibrancy and convenience of Uptown living with easy access to Waterloo’s many amenities.

Even in the heart of the city, nature will never be out of reach. The Barrel Yards is conveniently located close to many parks and trails, so you can experience the best of both worlds. Built to encapsulate the rich history and culture of Uptown Waterloo, we encourage you to explore your brand new community and be proud to bring your friends and family to visit.


Change your address

In the midst of a chaotic move, it can be easy to forget to change your mailing, billing and subscription addresses. Although it takes time, it’s much easier to take care of the situation before the problem of missing mail arises. Remember to also contact your utility service providers to let them know about your move and schedule your disconnect and connect dates. Heavy is the heart of the person who moves in to a new home and doesn’t have internet set up yet!

You may also want to consider notifying the post office, tax agencies, your bank, insurance providers, online shopping sites, and your friends and family while you’re at it. We suggest completing these tasks a few weeks prior to your move to avoid having to track down lost items on top of everything else.

Reward yourself with Barrel Rewards

As a resident of The Barrel Yards, whether you live at The Cooperage or The Onyx, we want you to get to know your community and feel at home. Upon your move-in, you’ll be equipped with a Barrel Rewards card, providing you with great discounts and offers to local businesses. Whether for coffee, a hotel stay, or a splurge-worthy shopping trip, this is a card worth taking advantage of! Get to know your new community while supporting local organizations and saving money at the same time.


Explore the Barrel Yards’ luxury amenities

While the location of The Barrel Yards and the views it boasts is often the star of the show when it comes to its appeal, the amenities within the development itself are enough to make you never want to leave. Enjoy a life of luxury at The Barrel Yards with its vast array of elegant amenities. The Onyx and The Cooperage truly have something for everyone, whether you are socializing, entertaining, or relaxing. Become familiar with the entertainment lounge, billiards room, private dining room, outdoor terrace, swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness centre and yoga room, 20-seat movie theatre and library at The Barrel Yards. Make the most of your new surroundings and use one of these spaces as the destination for your next social gathering!
