4 Things to Do When Moving House

 |  Sam

Here are ten things to consider when preparing to move house:

  1. Create a moving plan: Make a list of all the tasks you need to complete before, during, and after the move. This will help you stay organised and on track.
  2. Pack your belongings: Start packing your belongings well in advance of the move. Make sure to label each box with the contents and the room it will be going in at your new home.
  3. Update your address: Make sure to notify all relevant parties of your new address, including your employer, the post office, your banks and credit card companies, and any subscriptions or memberships you have.
  4. Arrange for transportation: If you are not using a removal company, you will need to arrange for transportation of your belongings to your new home. This may involve renting a truck or hiring a self-storage container.
  5. Set up utilities and services at your new home: Make sure to set up utilities such as electricity, gas, and water, as well as any other services you may need, such as internet and cable.
  6. Change your mailing address: Forward your mail to your new address by filling out a change of address form at the post office.
  7. Transfer or cancel your memberships and subscriptions: Cancel any memberships or subscriptions that you will no longer need or that are not transferrable to your new address.
  8. Update your driver’s license and vehicle registration: Make sure to update your driver’s license and vehicle registration with your new address.
  9. Update your insurance policies: Contact your insurance provider to update your policies with your new address.
  10. Take care of any necessary repairs or maintenance: Make any necessary repairs or maintenance on your current home before you move out, and have a professional inspect your new home to identify any potential issues.
