When it comes to moving home, you aren’t done until you move in.
You are packing boxes endlessly, sorting out last-minute bills and hoping for everything to work out smoothly.
Be sure to plan early and you are on a good start.
In this post, we take a look at all the important tasks you must accomplish before moving home.
Choose a Removals Company in Coventry
Booking a removal company is one of the key tasks of moving. With an efficient and reliable home removal company, you have one less thing to worry about.
Shortlist removal companies based on their services, insurance coverage, complaint process, customer feedback and their willingness to offer a free inspection and quote.
At United Movers, we provide professional home removal services in Coventry. With over 10 years of experience, we assure you of a hassle-free experience.
What’s more, we offer discounts on packing services for every move!
Familiarise Yourself with the New Neighbourhood
If you are moving to a new neighbourhood, it’s a good idea to familiarise yourself with the locality. Get to know the facilities including council offices, schools, fitness centres, banks, pharmacies, healthcare facilities and public halls.
In case you have school-going children, have their school records transferred and order new uniforms as well.
Inform Your Landlord
Another task to take care of first is to inform your landlord or estate agent (if it’s a rental property) about your decision to move and the moving date.
File Your Important Documents
Have a file in place to carry all your important documents as you get ready to move. If you are tech-savvy, consider moving all your important documents to the cloud so you have them handy.
Include your USB on your keyring to avoid losing it.
Sort Through Your Belongings
Start sorting through your belongings at least six weeks before the move. This way, you’ll have enough time to donate or get rid of items you don’t need.
With fewer things to move, your removal costs could come down too.
Once you have disposed of all unwanted items, make a list of all the belongings you are left with.
Notify Utility Companies
Update your address with utility companies at least one month before your move to give them enough time for the entire process.
Confirm Moving Details with the Removal Company
Inform your removal company about the moving date and route details at least two weeks before the move. This is also the right time to settle outstanding bills for any services you may be using and redirect the services to your new address if necessary.
On the Day of the Move
Click a picture of the utility meter readings for electricity, water and gas. Pack a night bag for essentials such as toiletries, medicines, extra clothes and towels.
