Moving House Checklist

Moving home can be stressful and challenging so we’ve put together a moving house checklist to keep you on track. Just check off everything as you go so you can keep calm and relaxed knowing you’ve got everything under control.

Starting from three weeks before your moving day, our moving home checklist covers everything from contacting removal firms to sorting out your final utility bills and includes a list of people to contact as well as a handy survival kit. Read our condensed checklist below, and download our full version to make sure you’ve gotten everything sorted.
