Moving’s not easy. Let us help you make it a smooth one.
- Select removalist. Get two or three comprehensive quotes. Ensure you discuss insurance.
- Have a supply of notification cards – it’s the best way of informing people about your change of address.
- If renting, advise the owner or managing agent, giving the required 28 days notice in writing.
- Advise gas, electricity and water providers. Arrange final readings, the disconnection of each and then arrange for reconnections at the new address.
- Advise Australia Post and have your mail redirected to your new address.
- Advise telephone and internet providers for disconnection and reconnection of services at your new home.
- Advise the Australian Taxation office of your new address.
- Go through your wallet and look at your cards to see what other organisations you need to notify (loyalty cards, hairdressers, service/trades people).
- Advise your road authority for your registration/licence.
- Advise Medicare of your change of address.
- Advise banks, credit card institutions, credit unions and finance companies.
- Advise insurance companies (house, contents, life, income, health, car etc).
- Advise solicitors, stockbrokers and superannuation firms.
- Advise the Australian Electoral Commission.
- Advise any publications (newspapers, journals, magazines etc) of your change of postal address.
- Advise your local library and don’t forget to return any overdue books.
- Why pay to move items you no longer want? Start afresh. It is amazing the number of things you will discover that you don’t need. Consider having a garage sale. Sell items online. Donate the rest to charity.
- If you plan to do some or all of your own packing, start well before your moving date. Start with seldom used articles. Make sure you label each box carefully and nominate which room it should be placed in.
