Moving House Checklist

Are you headed to a new home? How prepared are you? How is your budget? Have you already contacted your prospective moving company? Moving home can be pretty overwhelming and often requires meticulous planning, a lot of physical labour, and time.

If you feel a little anxious about the things you need to work on and sort out before your big day, don’t panic. Isle of Wight Removals has your back. We have laid down a comprehensive moving house checklist to help you make the process as smooth as possible. Whether you are upsizing or downsizing, here is a simple checklist for some of the most critical essentials when moving home. 

Contact a Moving Company in Advance

When moving home, you can either choose to move your belongings or hire a professional home removal company to handle it for you. When you work with such experts as Isle of Wight Removals, you are guaranteed quality, reliable, and customer-centric services.

We have our services tailored to fit your needs and ensure that everything is done to precision and according to the industry’s highest standards. To do this, we recommend that you talk with us about the moving day, time, and everything in between in advance. While we are always at your service, we can do little when we are all booked up and committed to other operations.

Get a home survey

Before the ultimate moving day, you might want to survey your home and take note of the things you don’t want in your new home. You might find a box you constantly move from one house to another but has never been unpacked. If you can go a whole year without using it, you most probably don’t even need it.

Having a clear idea of exactly what to carry and what to cut back on will save you some money and even make packing and unpacking easier.

Collect and Prepare your Packaging

Will you pack the items, or you need the movers to help? Whichever the case, ensure that you have a good supply of good packaging boxes and tapes.

If you have used our services before, then you understand that we use premium quality packaging materials for your valuable belongings. Do you need your fragile items dismantled and packed for utmost safety? Well, our professional removal team leaves no chance for errors. They employ fast, reliable, and effective strategies to ensure that your belongings get to their destination with zero damages and no delays.

Do you have outstanding bills?

You must double-check whether your current utility bills are paid and cleared. If not, be sure you pay them off before moving to avoid breaching your contract and possibly accruing late fees and other penalties.

Remember to Disconnect and Reconnect Utilities

When you are finally sure of your move-out date, you can disconnect your last house’s utilities and get others connected in your new home. Such utilities include water, electricity, gas, landline, or broadband, to mention a few. Also, remember to update your address as you prepare to leave your old house.

Remember to walk through the house for a thorough check and ensure that nothing has been left behind. Ensure you have everything needed to enter your new homes, such as keys and other necessities. If not, arrange to collect them in advance.
