Moving house checklist

Preparation is key to successfully moving house. Use our handy checklist to make the big move for you and your family as stress free as possible.

Tick it off as you go

What to do, and when

  • Create a moving file on your computer or in a folder. Compile all your notes and papers in one place:
    • Quotes from moving companies
    • Packing lists
    • Contact information for utilities, real estate agent/landlord, etc.
  • Think about de-cluttering. Don't waste money paying to have stuff moved that you never use or won't fit at your new property.
  • Once you know exactly what you're taking you'll be able to get an accurate removal company price, or select the right sized truck to hire if you're doing a DIY move.
  • Decide on whether you are going to do the move yourself or use a removal company.
  • Start researching your local area – do you need to transfer kids to new schools? Find a new play centre or childcare provider? How are you going to get to work?
  • Enrol or go on a waitlist for your new medical centre
