4 weeks before you move

  • At an appropriate time, explain to friends and family why you want to move.
  • Find out what items you no longer need and can dispose of.
  • Empty the basement, garage or attic as soon as possible.
  • Notify your lawyer, doctor and dentist that you are relocating.
  • Notify your bank as soon as possible, so that the transfer of your account will also take place smoothly.

3 weeks before you move

  • Ensure that your car, personal and medical insurance covers every possible eventuality.
  • Ensure that all the gas and electricity meter readings are recorded and that everything can be closed down on the day of your departure.
  • Disconnect your telephone and request your final bill.
  • Send out your address change cards if any as soon as possible and notify the post office about your relocation.
  • Inform the schools of your children in time and ensure that you have copies of school reports and certificates that may be required by the new schools.
  • Terminate your magazine and newspaper subscriptions and your club memberships

2 weeks before you move

  • Decide which personal items you will pack yourself and set these aside.
  • Collect valuable items such as jewellery and personal items that you will take along with you and pack them carefully.
  • Ensure that you return all your rented and borrowed items such as televisions and videos.
  • Prepare garden tools for packaging. In case of lawn mowers, drain out the oil and fuel. Evacuate the contents of hoses and carefully roll them up.

Moving day!

  • Remain close to our packaging supervisor so that you can issue instructions about ‘special’ items. When you arrive at your destination, you will experience the advantages of careful planning.
  • You will be asked to sign the inventory. Keep your copies safe.
  • Sort out all your keys into two clusters: one bunch that you will take along, and one bunch that you will leave behind. Labelling of the same will make this important task easier.
  • Pack in a ‘survival kit’ with all the small items that you will require when you arrive.
  • Make arrangement with neighbours so that there is adequate parking space for your relocation.
