Tips leading up to moving day

Think about what you'll be moving.
Assess your belongings and ask the removal company for a home visit if you're worried about bulkier items.

Notify your landlord.
If renting don't forget to notify your landlord. You will need to give at least 4 weeks notice before you move out otherwise you could forfeit rent.

Dispose of unwanted items.
Start clearing out the garage & loft, hire a skip if necessary. Make a few trips to the recycling centre.

Let your broadband supplier know as soon as possible that you are moving to ensure you are not penalised for shutting down your account.

You can always get a mobile broadband pay-as-you-go dongle to bridge the gap.
