Moving house tick list: two weeks before you move

As the date of your move draws ever nearer, the need to be totally prepared becomes greater. It can be easy to fall into a panic but it won't do you any favours; try instead to remain calm and be as organised as you possibly can. If you've followed the tick list for the last 2 weeks, you should be in a pretty good position. All of your non-essential items should be packed and the boxes labelled with their destination in your new house. You should have been in touch with your removal team so they know the exact time and date you're expecting them (if you don't have much to move talk to them about part load removals as you may be able to get a really good deal). Two weeks before moving is the time to organise having your post redirected. A quick trip to the post office will sort this for you, but bear in mind that you may have to pay for this service. Whilst you're in town, pop to the bank too and notify them of any changes to direct debits and standing orders. It's also time to think about the logistics of moving day. Call your estate agent and arrange a time to collect the keys for your new house. Have a think about who will look after your children and pets on the day, as having them around might prove stressful for you and them. Don't be afraid to ask advice from your removal team about these kind of matters - after all, they've got a lot of experience!
