Moving day can be a stressful experience, whether you are a first-time buyer or a seasoned homeowner. With so much to think about and plan for, it's easy to overlook important details. In this blog, we'll discuss what you need to consider on moving day, including how to manage your mortgage, and how Rettie Financial Services can help you with your mortgage renewal.

Preparing for Moving Day

Moving day requires a lot of planning and preparation, and it's essential to have a clear plan in place to ensure that everything goes smoothly. Here are some tips to help you prepare for moving day:

  • Start packing early - Packing can take longer than you think, so it's essential to start as early as possible. Begin by packing non-essential items, and work your way up to items that you use regularly.
  • Label boxes clearly - Label each box with its contents and the room it belongs in. This will make unpacking much easier when you arrive at your new home.
  • Notify utilities - Notify your utility providers of your move and arrange to have your services disconnected at your old property and reconnected at your new property.
  • Arrange for professional help - Consider hiring a professional moving company to help with the move. This will take the pressure off you and ensure that your belongings are transported safely.
