Moving house is a stressful time, and much of this can be put down to the physical task of picking up your life and putting down again somewhere new. To help make your life easier at this difficult time, we've put this handy countdown guide together:
  • Contact mobile phone companies, telephone, cable, satellite and internet service providers and notify them of your change of address and the date you are moving.
  • Start packing/ de-cluttering if you're doing this yourself.
  • Have your car serviced
  • Notify your bank or building society, notify your credit / store card providers
  • Notify your child's existing school that they will be leaving and then contact their new school.
  • Contact your insurance provider for your Life, Motor, Medical, Pet and Contents insurance.
  • If you are moving from your local area contact doctors, dentists and opticians then re-register in your new area.
  • Notify your local council in both your current area and the area you are moving to with regards to council tax
  • Contact TV Licensing and notify them that you are moving
  • Notify electricity, gas and water provider.
  • Pack a large bag with useful items that you may need on move day, eg a first aid kit, nappies, tea bags, knives and forks, matches, candles and a torch.
  • Pack all your jewellery and keep it in a safe place, remember to take it with you and keep it secure on move day.
  • If there is any dismantling of furniture you should have pre-arranged this with your removal company. If you are doing it yourself make sure that you keep all the screws in a safe place. Make sure that you arrange to have any hard-wired or fixed appliances disconnected by a professional.
  • Park your car outside your house in readiness for the removal vehicle's arrival tomorrow
  • Make sure you leave the kettle out and be prepared to make tea for the removal men. It pays to keep them on your side!
  • Make sure you check everywhere in the house, looking very carefully in cupboards and drawers.
  • Enjoy your new home!
