You're moving to a new home, now leave the complicated stuff to us! When moving, you can take your Shaw services with you and avoid a disruption to your Internet, TV or Phone. Just let us know when and where you're moving, and we'll help make it easy.

Set up your move

Contact us to get your move started, it's best to give us a couple weeks notice if possible. When you chat with us online, we can help make sure you're ready to request a move, and compile all your information.

Make sure that you're ready to plan your move with us. When we chat we'll need:

  • Your new address.
    • Be sure to let us know of any special considerations (a newly built house may need more time to install, and with a condo or apartment we may need access to a utility closet).
  • Dates: The day you're leaving the old address and the day you need services connected at your new address.
  • Contact information:  In case we need to get hold of you during the move.

Note: Ask if you can Self Connect at your new home; move on your own time and terms, we're always there for you
