When you’re moving home there are a million and one things to think about – from the bigger things, such as packing up all of your furniture and belongings, to the more menial tasks, including labelling boxes correctly. In addition to this, however, there are also a number of people, organisations and companies who will need to be made aware of your move and, while the majority of your move can be left to an experienced removals company, informing all of these people of your change of address is down to you.
It’s worth remembering that the importance of completing this task is vast and, while at best you might not receive all the Christmas cards intended for your letterbox, at worst you could face hefty bills from utility companies that aren’t meant for you!
Here at Harradines we understand that informing all of these people is yet another thing to cram into your already hectic schedule and, while actually informing them is fairly simple, remembering who to get in touch with can be a complex and confusing process.
However, as home removals specialists we strive to make moving home as simple and stress-free as possible and, as such, have compiled a list of all the people you may need to inform of your house move – all you need to do is tick them off as you go along!
