If you are leaving a property whether rented or your old home, take the meter readings – this should include Gas, Electricity and Water. This will ensure that your final bill is accurate.
Take the meter reading as soon as you get into your new home ready for when you call the utility companies to ensure you only pay for your own use.
Set up your utilities: The ones you need to contact include electricity, gas, telephone, internet, and water.
Moving is a hazardous business so make sure you have an easily accessible first aid kit and get the emergency numbers for the area just in case.
Find the fuse box as soon as you get into the property and make sure you fully understand how it has been labelled.
Find the instructions and ensure you have the code to disable it if it is on
This includes the main water shut-off as well as shutting off outside water. Locate the gas supply tap. Make sure everyone in the house knows where these are
Find them all and test them. Replace batteries if you are unsure.
You won’t know how many keys previous owners have had or handed out so this is good practice
Say Hi to the neighbours and apologise in advance for blocking their drive / making a noise which may happen on moving day, much better to get off on the right foot.
