Finally, you've bought the house of your dreams and have the keys in your hand. You have to deal with a big move, which can be exciting and stressful. When you're not putting clothes away, you're trying to remember which utility bills you've already paid off.
The key to making a moving house much smoother is to stay organized and on top of your list of things to do. Most of us won't move more than a few times, so you can't expect to be an expert. But if you use our house-moving checklist, you'll be a pro in no time.
1-2 Months Before Moving
- Decide the day when you will move.
- Tell your landlord about your move if you are on rent.
- Put your things in order.
- Book removal services if needed.
- Get your things insured if they belong to your landlord. It will save you from financial loss if they get damaged during movement.
- To avoid unnecessary bills, tell your internet providers, telephone services, and utility companies about your move.
- “Royal Mail" will help you redirect and change your address details.
2 Weeks Before Moving
- During shifting, you will need someone to care for your kids and pets, if any. Make these arrangements now.
- Pack unnecessary items.
- If you leave the area, put this in your doctors' knowledge.
- If you have regular newspapers or journal deliveries, change your address with them or cancel deliveries.
- Contact us if you have booked any removal company and know about the arrangements.
2 Days Left To Move Into A New Home
- Think about the things that you will need at a very early stage in your new home. Pack them separately.
- Your essentials will include basic crockery, cutlery, toilet stuff, cleaning products, scissors, adhesives, etc.
- Put your important documents and valuables in a safe place.
- Reassembling your electronics may give you a hard time. Take photos to make it easy at the new place.
- Clean your refrigerator.
- Collect keys from your estate agent or make time to do so.
1 Day Left To Move
- Your packing must be complete.
- Label boxes according to the stuff they contain. It will be easier to put them in the room they belong to.
- Your mobile should be fully charged.
- Take a look at everything. If anything is left, search your cupboards, rooms, hall, basement, etc.
The Day Of Your Move Arrives
- Before leaving, note the meter readings at the present property. Do the same when you step into the new one.
- You may leave information for the new inhabitant about the location of the stopcock, fuse box, thermostat, etc.
- Please read the labels on each box and place them in the relevant rooms.
- Take one more round of every corner to ensure nothing is left.
- Don’t overdo anything. Set the stuff one by one.
