Moving house checklist

When it’s finally time to move, you’ve exchanged and your completion date is in sight, then it’s time to notify all the businesses and services that have integrated themselves into your life over the years.

But where to start? Copse Magazine brings you this handy list for you to print and tick off as you go.

  • Utilities
  • Water
  • Sewage
  • Electricity
  • Gas
  • Telephone
  • Broadband
  • Mobile phone provider
  • Mobile phone insurance
  • Buildings and contents insurance
  • Royal Mail redirection
  • Council tax (moving out and moving in)
  • Electoral roll
  • Shopping
  • Amazon
  • Nectar
  • Tesco club card
  • Bank
  • Magazine subscriptions
  • Alumni organisations
  • Charity mailing lists/subscriptions
  • Friends and family 🙂
  • Random Christmas card contacts

I’ve just moved… so will be adding to this list as I go (and as I found out what I forgot to do!) but if you have any suggestions for the list, please add them in the comments below, or email me… and I’ll add them in.

Happy packing, and good luck with the house move!
