Moving Checklist 2

Moving Checklist

  • Moving house is never simple. There’s so much to think about including time frames and finances before you even start to think about bubble wrap and boxes. What’s more, you need to be certain that you are making the right decisions every step of the way.
  • Get Quotes From Removal Firms. Researching the best deal will save money. Ask your friends and family whether they would mind lending a hand. This will help cut down on costs.
  • Be Ruthless. This is a brilliant opportunity to de-clutter. Take items to charity shops or hold a car boot sale which will help with the expense of moving. Remember one man’s trash is another man’s treasure.
  • Keep essential items safe, this includes your passport, birth certificates, finance documents and anything else important.
  • Important dates if you are renting, give your landlord plenty of notice and find out the confirmed date of when you can start moving into your new home.
  • If you are moving to a smaller property, look into storage space for belongings or furniture which won’t fit into your new home. You can decide what to do with them at a later date.
  • Pets are Family. Ask friends and family if they are able to look after your pets during the move, or look into kennels or a cattery, this will keep both you and them happy and stress free.
  • When arranging the change of address for your passports and driving licences etc. Don’t forget to change the address on your pet’s identity tags too!
  • Personal wellbeing. Remember to advise your doctor, dentist, opticians and vets of your new address, or de-register if you are moving out of the area. Set up a forwarding address with the post office and ask a charity if they would like to collect any large unwanted items.
  • Take note of all meter readings (gas, electricity and water) in both your current and new properties.
  • All the best with your move!
