Start preparing at least 2 weeks in advance. Start by packing your belongings, label boxes with details on their contents and what room they are intended for. Try not to overload boxes and make sure all fragile items are securely wrapped in tissue, wrapping paper or bubble wrap. We offer all packaging materials and a full or part packing service
Contact your telephone provider to arrange a new number or transfer your number (this is only applicable if you’re moving to a house in the same area code)
Inform your utility company that you’re moving, so your meters can be read on the day of your removal
Remember to inform your bank, insurance company, credit card provider, local authority, DVLA and other organisations of your change of address
Contact Royal Mail to redirect your mail
If you have pets try to make arrangements to leave them with someone on the day of your removal. Moving house can also be stressful for your pets – so its best to leave them with a friend or relative until the move is complete
