If you are planning to move house, it pays—literally—to be prepared. By preparing for a removal beforehand, you can save yourself a lot of stress and strain. For example, one month before your move, you need to choose a removal company. You also need to provide your mailers with your new residential address. Mailers may include your bank, family members, friends, store card companies, credit card companies, and your doctor and dentist.
Two Weeks before Your Removal Date
Two weeks before the date of your move, you need to notify the utilities of your change of residence. You also need to enrol in utility services at your new residence. Professional removals in Barry should be handled by a company that is licensed and insured and which offers fast and dependable removal assistance. You should know how much it will cost you to move house at this point in the process.
A day before your move, you will need to do the following:
- Disconnect the appliances, such as the dishwasher, washing machine, and cooker
- Empty and defrost the fridge and freezer
