It’s easy to miss crucial things to do when moving home. We have created a list of a few things to remember to do and consider before moving home. 

  • Check your house insurance, make sure your cover starts the day you are set to move into your new house.
  • Notify your utility companies of your departure. Also, take note the day you move out and in the readings when you leave and when you arrive at your new address.
  • Sort out with the post office, the re-direction of your post to be forwarded to your new address.
  • Notify the bank of changes to direct debits and standing orders and change of address.
  • Hire a removal company 2 weeks before your planned move date.
  • Make a plan of where each box and furniture such be put when transferred to your new home.
  • Make sure you have any relevant medication to hand when moving so you don’t have to check every box when you are moved in
  • Put important items e.g. passport, driving licenses, house deeds and jewellery in a safe box, ready for the moving day.
  • Defrost the fridge and freezer if you are taking these with you.
  • Ensure the day of moving your mobile is fully charged in case you have to make important calls.
