Careful organisation and forward planning can minimise the stress of moving house. Use our moving checklist in conjunction with our Who to notify checklist to guide you through the six weeks leading up to to moving day.

 

Two weeks before moving

 

1. Start packing non-essential items such as books and     non-seasonal clothes into boxes.

 

2. Un-register from your doctor, dentist and optician if     you're moving out of the area.

 

3. Visit the post office and arrange for your post to be      forwarded (you will be charged a fee for this service).

 

4. Notify your milkman and newspaper shop that you'll be     moving and give them a date you want the service to     stop.

 

5. If you have children or pets, arrange for someone to     look after them during the move.

 

6. Make a list of everyone who should know about the     move. Send out change of address ecards.

 

7. Finalise arrangements with your removal company.     Confirm arrival times and make sure your removers have      directions to your new address.

 

8. Arrange a time to collect the keys for your new home     from the estate agent.

 

9. Notify then bank of any changes to direct debits and     standing orders.

 

Six weeks before the move

1. Confirm the date of your move.

 

2. If you're renting, notify your landlord of your moving     date.

 

3. Check your home insurance - make sure you have     cover from the day you move in to your new home.

 

4. Obtain written quotes from several removal firms.     Get references and check the limits of their     insurance.

 

5. If you're not using professional removers, ask     friends to help.

 

6. Book extra storage space if required.

 

7. Notify the relevant utility companies of your     departure.

 

8. Start getting rid of possessions you no longer need.     Decide which items can be taken to a charity shop,     sold at car boot sale, or offered to your friends.

 

9. If you need new furniture or carpets - order them     now and arrange delivery for when you move in.
