Moving house can be quite an exciting but sometimes stressful undertaking especially if you have never moved before. By using the following checklist, you can organise your relocation in advance and simplify the packing process for a successful move.

Timeline of weeks prior to your move……..

8 weeks

  • establish a budget and estimate the cost of moving, research moving options and source quote and book your moving service or vehicle hire

 6 weeks

  • source your packing supplies i.e boxes and bags and start the packing process, make sure you label all of the boxes clearly

 4 weeks

  • organise change of address notifications, transfer or set up utilities at your new address and sell or donate any unwanted items

 2 weeks

  • organise pet transportation as well as change the address for your pet microchips. Make an essentials bag which will contain items that you will need for the first 24 hours for example toiletries, a change of clothing and bedding

The moving day  

Big day is finally here….ensure that you have the right amount of money to pay the movers and most importantly – enjoy the day and the excitement of your new home…
