Parking – arrange a parking space for our removal vehicles at the new address. Do not leave it for last-minute.
Landlord/Tenant – inform your landlord in advance about your planned moving date.
Bank – notify you bank about changing addresses and check where the nearest branch is. Maybe it is no longer comfortable to have your account in this bank.
Insurance – notify you insurance companies: motor, life, home, etc.
Driving License – send an appropriate part of your license and send it to DVLA (Gov.uk).
Post Office – let your post office know about the new address about 7 days before moving. You must do it over the counter.
Schools – find new school for you children, register them and let the old school know about the leaving date.

Mobile Phones – about two weeks before moving contact you providers (do not forget internet) and let them know the date and address of the new house.
Any Future Deliveries – if you are expecting any soon deliveries (new curtains?) let them know about moving.
Standing Orders – notify all the companies from which you are taking a loan or have a hire purchase agreement.
Packing Materials/Boxes – if you are going to do the packing on your own, order all the required materials a month before. You can pack your stuff step by step and label it. There is no need to leave it for the last day.
Council tax – notify appropriate authorities in both addresses.
Inform Friends/Family – the easiest one to forget? Maybe mass mail is not a bad idea in this case?
Cleaning – if you are going to have your houses cleaned, make sure you have arranged it before. You definitely want everything to look good and clean.
