Sell, give away or store items which you haven’t used for a few years. Be as harsh as you can — you’ll save money on the move and you
- Keep important items with you
Don’t pack medications, important documents, essential baby’s toys in with your household items. Keep them with you as they may be required during your journey.
- Sort the utilities before you move
Make sure your phone, Internet and electricity are connected and waiting for you in your new home, well in advance of the move. Delays can happen, so organise your utilities as early as possible.
