More than packing and hauling furniture to big trucks, there are a number of other things that need to be taken care of when you are moving house. Unfortunately, these are the kind of things that are frequently forgotten and are only remembered when it is a little too late. Do not let this happen to you. At least a month before your supposed moving day, make sure you start slowly ticking every item off this to-do list.
Make sure that your new address is reflected on your driver’s license, car ownership certificate and car insurance. Failure to notify the appropriate parties may cost you a considerable fine.
Don’t forget to tell them about your last day in the old property, so they will not make the mistake of billing you for someone else’s consumption. An early notification can also guarantee that you will have running water or electricity in your new home when you arrive.
Starting your life in a new location away from loved ones can cause separation anxiety not just for you but for those people you will leave, too. Before you get crazy busy packing and boxing stuff, set aside a portion of your time saying your goodbyes properly. Let them know about your new address or phone number so they can still keep in touch.
Booking a removals company early will save you from tons of stress on the actual moving day. They can help you supply the necessary packing materials and offer free advice if you have concerns about storage, haulage, or special treatments on delicate furniture.
