Get Ready to Move

First Home Buyers Guide from Austral Mortgage

Step 9: Get Ready to Move

Now that all the formalities are almost complete, you’re about to move - and this is always a reminder of whether you're a minimalist or a hoarder!  

Regardless of whether you’re upsizing or downsizing, moving home can be hectic so it pays to plan in advance, and if you can round up a few friends to help out, even better. 

In addition to packing your life into boxes, you also need to think about finalising your bills and contacting your service providers. Write a list of people / institutions you have to alert about your new home address.

You can get your mail redirected easily by filling in a form at your local post office.

Importantly, you also have to disconnect your utilities or ask the providers if you can carry any ongoing contracts to your new address.

Often this is a great time for a clean out, but don't forget to check your options with regard to rubbish. Illegal dumping carries big fines.

... And if you have the time to be organised with your packing, remember that it does make life easier at the other end.
