1. Arrange a removals company
Once you have confirmed your moving date, book a removal company to help you move your belongings.
Make sure you research reliable companies and choose one within your budget.
Before you commit, check that the cost quotation is accurate and confirm what services are included.
2. Packing for your move
It is a good idea to declutter your home before you move to avoid wasting space on items you no longer want or need. Label all your boxes by room for a smooth arrival at your new home.
Pack one box of essentials for your first night - you don't want to be rummaging through all your boxes the box of tea bags or your child's favourite teddy!
3. Update your address
Before you move, update your address with Royal Mail and any other important contacts. This could include banks, insurance companies, health services and government bodies, as well as friends and family.
You will also need to inform utility companies of your move as soon as possible to ensure you have water and electricity when you arrive.
4. Final preparations
To reduce your stresses on moving day, it may be a good idea to arrange care for your children and pets.
You may also want to order a food shop to your new home, so you have one less thing on your to-do list.
5. Moving day!
Moving day is exciting, but there is a lot to do - make sure you wear comfortable clothes as you'll be on your feet all day.
Pack your valuables and essentials in your car so they are safe and easy to find when you arrive. You may want to create a box-free room to give you space to relax without having to look at the boxes.
