Marlene Baker, one of Calibre’s top residential sales agent shares with us the advantages of moving house, “The best thing about moving house is it’s a great opportunity to declutter and get rid of the things you haven’t used for ages or unpacked since the last move. My big tip is to make sure you remember to get your electricity & internet connected as it can sometimes take a few days, even a week.“
Use this checklist and you’ll be enjoying a glass of your favourite beverage in your beautiful new home in no time.

2. Be Assured, Get Insured
Ensure insurance for contents on the move is in order, Locate personal or valuable items to take with you personally on your moving day.
3. Lights off, no one’s home.
Arrange for all utilities to be finalised on your moving day and also connection to your new home.
4. Big Bag of Goodies to keep you sane.
Pack a bag with supplies to have with you personally on the day of moving such as a first aid kit, medications, phone chargers, spare change of clothes & toiletries, snacks and water bottles, cleaning items, children’s activities.
5. Itemise Like a Pro
Create an itemised inventory of what is packed in each box. On moving day check off all furniture and cartons against your inventory as they go into the truck.
6. Hit the Hay
Unpack your bedding in the new home and make up all the beds as soon as possible – a good nights’ sleep will be just what the doctor ordered at the end of a tiring day!
