This time of year is one of the most popular for moving house, however it doesn’t matter what time of year you decide to move, the experience is likely to be just as stressful. There is so much to remember, it is easy to forget some important essentials.
So after you have dealt with the estate agents, solicitors and packing of boxes, what else is there? Here are three home move essentials that are commonly forgotten about in the confusion…
Redirecting your mail
Redirecting mail is often at the bottom of the moving house list, but it is very important to redirect things like bank statements, credit cards and so on. Failing to do this can leave you open to all sorts of problems and security issues.
Let the council know you are moving house
You will still be liable for council tax unless you let the council know that you are moving to another house. It is also important to inform them of your new address to avoid any confusion.
This is another thing that tends to be put to the bottom of the list. Moving house means things may be at more risk than usual, particularly if the house is left empty.
Making use of your local self-storage facility can also be handy if you don’t want to move everything all at once. Contact us for more details today.
