Moving houses or flats can be stressful. No matter how much time you give yourself to prepare, moving day always seems to be approaching faster than you anticipated. In the midst of moving, many chores can be forgotten about or perhaps, there are just some things you haven’t even considered doing!
But don’t worry – here is a checklist with the various stages of moving out and essential chores you will need to complete in order to swerve the chaos.
Plan out your move
Planning makes up half of the entire process. Before sorting out any of your belongings, make a list of what you want to keep and chuck away. It sounds like a simple task, but can be very useful when you have a load of other things to think about.
Working out a budget is also vital. This will allow you to easily recognise your options, when choosing your removal waste and moving company and help you manage your budget wisely.
Give yourself a few weeks before moving day to start de-cluttering. This is the best chance to clear out any items you no longer need. Naturally, a lot of clutter and waste can pile up, even within a short span of time. So, it is never a bad time to clear out your home!
Having a good waste management service, which allows you to dispose of your items responsibly, would feed more genuine care to the environment we live in! Skip It is dedicated to achieving a healthy and safe environment. In fact, 95 per cent of all the waste we collect avoids landfills and instead, gets recycled by our network of accredited recycling centres.
To help us achieve a cleaner and greener environment it is ideal to keep your clutter to a minimum by doing the best you can to prevent, reuse or recycle waste. The waste that is ready for collection should then be stored safely and securely.
Book your waste removal service
After arranging a removal company for your move, don’t forget to book your waste collection service just in time so that it doesn’t stand in the way of the removal specialists on the big day.

Don’t forget your utilities
Depending on your move dates, make sure to close down any accounts with your electricity, water, gas, internet and landline provider in time. You might want to change your address for credit cards, insurance, motor vehicle registration and any memberships. This is also a good chance to start looking for other service providers that offer better deals!
Labelling your items can help simplify directions for the removal specialists, when shifting and organising your belongings. Label boxes that contain certain items that need to be moved to a particular room, or transported carefully to the new address.
Lock your valuables and important documents, such as passports and driver’s license, somewhere safe and preferably transport them personally to your new home. Don’t forget to pack your overnight bags for the family, with all your essentials, including clothes and toiletries!
