The tasks leading up to moving day can seem endless, and many people find this period extremely stressful.

But if you start planning a few weeks in advance, and give yourself enough time, most of the stress can be avoided.

To help you keep track of things, we've compiled a checklist of key activities leading up to moving day. So now you can relax and look forward to a smoother move without the stress!

We've produced two moving checklists, the first to be used 6 weeks before the move and the second two weeks beforehand.

Six weeks to go!

Start getting removal quotes.
Get several quotes and ask if the company is a member of BAR - The British Association of Removers.




Book the removal company.
Provisionally book the removal company. The date can normally be changed later if anything crops up.



Think about what you'll be moving.
Assess your belongings and ask the removal company for a home visit if you're worried about bulkier items.



Book extra or temporary storage.
If you need extra storage space, get some quotes and book it.



Source boxes & tape.
Ask the removal company to supply boxes & tape and bubble wrap if required.



Organise your extra help.
If you're not using professionals, make sure you give family & friends plenty of notice if you need help.



Notify your landlord.
If renting don't forget to notify your landlord. You will need to give at least 4 weeks notice before you move out otherwise you could forfeit rent.



Dispose of unwanted items.
Start clearing out the garage & loft, hire a skip if necessary. Make a few trips to the recycling centre.



Notify utilities.
Make a list of who to inform and start to notify the utility companies of your move.



Order new items.
Order any new furniture & carpet for your new home for delivery in  time for the move.
