Have a de-clutter, order a skip as this will save you multiple trips to the landfill.
Now is a good time to alert service providers. The following should be notified of change of address.
Business Accounts, Bank Account, Dentist, Optician, Telephone, Vet, Water, Gas, Electricity, Credit Cards, Passport, Milkman, Drivers License.
Send Change of Address cards to friends and family.
Inform post office to redirect mail.
Arrange to have young children and pets looked after by someone on the day of the move.
Arrange to have tea, coffee and biscuits with kettle, cups and milk on the day for yourselves and the hard working removal team!
Take with you in your car all monies, jewellery and valuables.
Keep all keys to your house, garage and shed handy and labelled for the new owners.
When the removers have finished, do a walk around and check with them to ensure nothing has been left that needs to be taken.
By following the above tips and being prepared this will hopefully take some of the stress out of moving!
