Moving House Checklist

Moving house is said to be one of the most stressful events in a persons life.

With so much to do, the best way to tackle a house move (and as with many things in life) is to have a plan in place.  Our team have put together a handy timeline, to help you with your planning.

It may also remind you of some of the essentials tasks you need to accomplish before moving day!
