Moving Tips

Moving or relocation of your furniture and belongings can be within the top three most stressful events in your life. However, it can also be an exciting time – moving to a new place or city, and with new opportunities.

The professionalism and efficiency of Unishaun Removals and Relocation Services takes care of every conceivable detail, but there are still problems that could arise if you have not planned and understood the implications of your move. With this in mind, our company has compiled a checklist to help you with your planning:

Personal details

  • Inform all utility companies of your departure and arrange for transfer of services (e.g. lights, water, telephone)
  • Obtain relevant records from your optician, dentist, doctor and vet
  • Inform all relevant financial authorities of your new address (e.g. banks, stores, insurance companies)
  • Backup all software used on computers and laptops to be moved.
  • Contact the post office to have your mail forwarded to your new address
  • For long distance moves, book alternative accommodation if there is a delay before moving into your new home
  • Make sure your car is serviced ahead of a long trip


Furniture Planning

  • Plan where you want to put your furniture in your new home
  • Draw up a floor-plan of your new home so that when you move in, your furniture fits where you would like it to go
  • Purchase necessary new items ahead of time

Kitchen and Electrical Appliances

  • If these require professional de-connection or plumbing, arrange for an electrician or plumber to call on moving day or the day before
  • Start to run-down the contents of your freezer some time before your move
  • Stoves need to be disconnected and fridge motors or washing machine drums bolted down – get specialist assistance if required

Fixtures and Fittings

  • Items such as TV aerials/DSTV dishes, clothes driers, curtain rails, pelmets, fireplace fittings, wall cupboards and mirrors may have been excluded from a sale agreement or could have been personal additions to your rental home. Whatever the case, do not leave pertinent items behind, and plan to have them taken down ahead of time.
