Arrange the Removal Company – If you are going to use a removals company it is a good idea to book them as soon as you have your moving date, as you want to ensure that they can fit you in. Find a local company such as this removal company Gloucester who will be able to give you a quote and if you are happy then book them in for your moving day.

Pack – Packing is a job that nobody looks forward to, but it is important to be organised and start early to avoid the last-minute panic. It is also a good opportunity to have a clear out which will mean you won’t be moving things you don’t need or want to your new home.

Let People Know You Are Moving – Make a list of all the people that will need to know your new address – this includes doctors, dentists, your bank, utility suppliers and your workplace.

If you are currently in rented accommodation, you will also need to let your landlord know the date you will be moving, and either arrange for a cleaner to come in and thoroughly clean the property or put some time aside to do it yourself.
