Four Weeks Before:-

  • Check your home contents insurance covers removals
  • Decide whether to instruct a professional removals firm or move yourself
  • Get quotes from removal firms or van hire companies

  • Consider any arrangements required for pets or small children during the move
  • Start to run down the contents of your freezer

One Week Before:-

  • Redirect your post and inform insurance companies, your bank, your employer, doctor, and any schools of your upcoming change of address
  • Notify your phone, cable company and any credit card supplier when you want your accounts to end at your present address and what your new address will be
  • Confirm date and time of the move with the removal company
  • Notify friends and family or your move date and new address
  • Remember to defrost your freezer

One Day Before:-

  • Finish packing
  • Arrange meter readings at your existing home and confirm the date for taking over the utilities at your new address.
