Your moving day checklist

29 March 2011

Moving day is just around the corner and the excitement is building. But have you told everyone about your change of address? Is your post redirected? Does your gas supplier know? The list of things to do should not be ignored, as the last thing you want to do is move into your new home unprepared.

So, to give you a helping hand, take a look at our checklist of things to take care of before you move:

  • Redirect your post to your new address
  • Let all of your utility suppliers (gas, electricity, water) that you are set to move
  • Cancel/change your television service (such as Virgin Media) and change your TV license
  • Contact the DVLA and change your driving license details to your new address
  • Let the doctors and dentist know
  • Contact your bank and anyone you receive bills from to make sure they go to the right address
  • The electoral register will also need to know your new place of residence
  • Book the removal men! Arrange this with plenty of time to spare
  • Round up all the keys you have for the property
  • Get packing, making sure to label each box with the right room for the new property
  • Remember to change the delivery and billing address on any online shopping sites you use
  • Make sure you get insurance and look at making any home repairs in your new property

Taking all of these things into account will help you plan and carry out a successful move day!
