Having a proper moving experience that goes without any hassle or stress is an achievable goal. All that you need is a little organization and the peace of mind that you have covered every little detail in advance. Making a list of things to do in advance will ensure there will be no complications during your removal, and you can just wait for the man and van company come load on your items and drive them to the new place.

A couple packingDeriving from the experience of several very skillful man and van moving experts, we have created an example of a check list for your relocation, which you will defiantly find very useful:

  • In terms of taxes and other documentation

You should inform both the tax office and the Child Benefit Office, as well as Pensions Office for your removal.

  • The financial aspect

Your bank, credit card company and shop charge cards people should be informed about your removal in advance.

  • The vehicles

The car insurance company, as well as the DVLA would like to know about your change of address.

  • Legal issues and documentation

If you are selling the property you currently live in, but you are going to leave very soon, you should find a lawyer to help you throughout the process of preparing the documentation for the deal. If you are leaving a rented accommodation, your landlord should be notified in advance, as required by the law.

  • The post office

Leave your new address with the new tenant of the property you leave and inform the post office so that they can redirect all letters and packages that arrive at your old address.

  • Medical concerns

Notify your GP that you will no longer use their services and find a new GP in your area. Do the same with the dentist. If you need any special medications, do not pack them with the rest of your stuff. Take them in a handbag instead.

  • Children’s school

If you have a family, you should think in advance where your kids are going to go to school in the new area. This should be a top priority for you, so do not forget to find the proper school and get all the documents ready, so that your kids’ education does not suffer due to the home removal you are going to.

It is easy to overlook some of those things while you are preparing for your relocation and are too busy looking for a man and van contractor, or dealing with other aspects of the project. But if you make sure that they are covered, you will definitely make your life easier and more hassle-free during the relocation. Actually, finding proper man and van removal company to take care of the actual relocation of your property will greatly help you with tackling all the tasks that are described above, because while they manage the logistics of your removal for you, you will save a lot of time and energy.
