Most people leave a few things until the last minute. So here's a handy guide to the 5 things you need to do before you move:

1. Prepare a checklist

Prepare a checklist of all the things being moved. After the moving van drops off all your belongings at your new house, all you need to do is go back to your checklist and ensure everything has arrived. Having a checklist handy saves you time and makes a big difference to get you comfortably settled in so you aren't frantically searching through boxes at midnight trying to remember if you packed a particular item.

2. Call the pest control services

The last thing you want to encounter in your new house is pests. Although most properties will be a professionally cleaned before the previous tenants move out, sometimes a house might be empty for an extended period of time, which means it will need another clean before you move in. So, hire professional cleaners who specialize in final house cleans and have them steam the carpets and do a thorough job on the bathrooms and kitchen.

3. Keep your essentials ready

Just as important as unpacking a box is, it is important to pack an essentials box for a successful move. It should contain a change of clothing, basic toiletries, toilet paper, pajamas, towels, bed linen and any other essentials you may require like tea bags or a coffee plunger. It makes such a big difference to the comfort of your first night in your new home.

4. Update friends and family with your new contact information

Although it's important to make sure you officially change your address with relevant businesses, it's also important to update your friends and relatives. Send across a text message or e-mail notifying people of your new address and phone number so the important people in your life can contact you when you start living at your new residence.

5. Buy insurance

When you move to a new house, it's important to contact your insurance provider to make you're your new home is covered. If you have bought a new home, you will need to buy structural insurance. If you have shifted to a house on rent, the owner will possess the structural insurance. You can opt for contents insurance to safeguard the contents of your home.

Remember that your home reflects your personality and will require you to put in some efforts to ensure comfort. While moving can be tainted with a few nasty surprises, sticking to these tips are bound to provide a smooth transition into your new home.
