'To Do List' Before Moving!
Moving house is a process of having to search and look for the most suitable property, especially if it is a family property. Then comes the process of house relocating and moving house.
It is always exciting when moving into a new place, after the activity of looking for such a place in the appropriate area. Nevertheless, some crucial things have to be done before you move.
Before the house move have a 'To Do List.'
Change your address.
It is important you do not forget to change your address. Otherwise, the new tenants, in the old property, may just return the mail back to its sender. Notify the post office, government departments, e.g., local council, and other businesses, e.g., car Insurance, of the new address. Also, inform friends and family.
Contact your local Energy supplier.
Discontinue the power supply in the old property and start the supply of energy in the new property. This process is very simple. Call the provider with your last reading from the old property. This final gas or electric reading would be used to calculate the final bill. The first reading from the new property would be used to derive the first bill.
Contact your local Internet provider.
To avoid the inconvenience and frustration of not having internet access at the new house contact your local provider. Allow sufficient time for its installation because internet providers would typically book weeks in advance.
Contact your house and contents Insurance provider.
Inform your provider of the dates you would be moving out of the old property and the date you would be moving into the new property. So that you a properly insured at the point when you live in either property.
Have the house cleaned either by yourself or professionally. Especially if the house has been empty for an extended period. In which case you can always hire a professional cleaner that specializes in final house cleaning and carpet steaming.
