Useful Hints & Tips

Moving checklist

Accurate organisation and forward planning can minimise the stress of relocating. Here are some useful hints and tips for moving home.

Six – Eight weeks before your move:

  • Confirm the date of your move
  • If you’re renting, notify your landlord of your moving date
  • Check your home insurance – make sure you have cover from the day you move into your new home.
  • Seek quotations in writing from at least 3 service providers
  • Notify the relevant utility companies of your cancellation of service date: Gas, Electricity, Wifi, TV cable Provider, LPT (Local property tax), Revenue, Home and car Insurance, Estate agents, Property management company,
  • Book extra storage space if required.
  • Declutter – Dispose of content you do not want or need prior to packing date. This will reduce your volume required for shipping and ultimately reduce your costs.
  • Notify the bank of possible termination of direct debits and standing orders.


Two weeks before moving

  • Start packing non-essential items such as books and non-seasonal clothes into boxes
  • De-register from your doctor, dentist and optician: get your file from them
  • Visit the post office and arrange for your post to be forwarded (you will be charged a fee for this service).
  • If you have young children or pets, arrange for someone to look after them during the move.
  • Make a list of everyone who should know about the move. Send out change of address details.
  • Finalise arrangements with your removal company. Confirm arrival times and make sure your removers have instructions to your new address.
  • Arrange a time to collect the keys for your new home from the estate agent.
