Moving home checklist

Things to do a few weeks before your moving day

  • Email our office to confirm the removal date and send off the removal confirmation and payment
  • Arrange packing materials and pet carriers
  • Start to run down food especially that in the freezer – if fridge’s and freezers are to be stored – they must be emptied and defrosted
  • Arrange to have the electric and gas meters read on the removal day
  • Arrange telephone number changes – call diversions and final billing with the telephone company
  • Notify the post-office to redirect your mail
  • Arrange baby and pet sitter – children, animals and removals don’t mix!
  • Arrange cleaning of rugs, carpets and curtains (if required)
  • Arrange disconnection and reconnection of appliance (particularly gas appliance and electric cookers which require specialist personnel)
  • For those moving out of the area, try asking the current tenants of the property you are moving in to for a recommended plumber, electrician, etc. and possibly a local phone book
  • Book any accommodation (if applicable)
  • Place orders or make decisions for any new appliances or furnishings (such as carpets) which you will require in your new home
  • Find all of the guarantees and associated instructions for all appliances to be left – put to one side to avoid packing
  • Write instructions for hot water and heating systems – put with guarantees above as instructions for the new owner
