Moving Tips


Take advantage of the move and have a good sort out. Sell or give away things you no longer require and don’t forget to go through your garage or shed. As soon as you have a move date agreed with your solicitor, arrange a removal company – talk to a few and consider the options before making a decision. Make sure the removal company is available on the day you want – bear in mind that Fridays are the most popular day to move, so removals firms may be booked up for a few weeks in advance.Book some time off work. If you are doing the packing yourself, order / collect packing boxes and start getting things boxed up – if you need to put anything into storage, make sure these boxes are clearly marked.Make a list of who you need to notify about your change of address and also check with the Post Office about getting your mail redirected (they will tell you how much notice they need).About a month before the move, you should notify your bank and credit card providers, and insurance company.Contact utility companies about your move to your new property.
