When moving home, there are a few significant factors that need to be addressed.
- Parking arrangements on the day
- Access to your residence, stairs or lift
- Accurate itinerary of items to be moved
Your new abode
Before you pack, ensure you have checked some vital essentials in your new home such as:
- Door widths or access for out-sized furniture
- Broadband speeds
- Room measurements (will your large wardrobe actually fit in the master bedroom)
Your New Address
You have possibly notified the change of address with institutions such as:
- Financial institutions
However, there are many other organizations, which need your new address such as:
- Magazine subscriptions
- Addresses such as eBay and PayPal addresses also need to be changed
While you are changing addresses, try setting up mail redirection with your post office so that you do not miss any overlapping post.
Majority of parents organize new schools well ahead before they move. However, they forget about some other crucial aspects such as:
- After school clubs
- Other kid’s related societies
You never know, there could be a waiting list, the earlier you make the booking, the better.
When packing, try to figure out:
- Items to take, recycle, dispose, sell or give away and what about those sentimental items?
- What you will require in the first 24 hours, just after the move
- New items you may require for the house – new carpets and curtains.
