  • Label boxes when packing them, ensuring you know exactly what is in each
  • Reconnect and disconnect all utilities from gas, phone, electricity, and water
  • Check for needed repairs in the new and old home from painting to flooring
  • If moving interstate, ensure you fix your car registration plates

  • If you own a business, ensure all your clients are aware of the new information
  • Rearrange any home services you used from a cleaner to a gardener
  • Change the address on your license, bills and any mail you receive
