Once you’ve settled into your new home, you’ll have a lot of things to do. To manage all this, a good organization is required. Here are the non-exhaustive lists of things to do before and after the move.

The to-do list before moving

Professional change, buying your first home, needing a more spacious apartment or whatever the reason for moving, a move remains a big decision often stressful for many. For everything to go well, it is essential to organize well. For this, making a checklist is essential.

  • Planning your move (setting the date…): it’s crucial to plan your move. Start by planning the date. Ideally, you should prepare at least 3 months in advance. Also, avoid the period between June and September as much as possible. Many households move during this period. Prices are high during these months! Also choose the date based on the availability of your loved ones who have agreed to help you.
  • Sorting through your belongings: Moving is the perfect time to sort through your belongings. It’s time for inventory! Separate from things that no longer serve you, cumbersome business… Keep only the essentials! Also, store all your administrative documents at the same time. Throw away files that are no longer useful to you.
  • Use a pro mover: If you decide to hire a professional mover, please compare the offers he offers. Ask for quotes from several companies. Choose the best deal!

The list of things to do after moving (before moving)

When you move into your new home, take the time to think carefully before you act. Think about the location of your sofa, your TV… to decorate your room, to furnish your bathroom… Here’s a list of things to do after the move.

  • Do the work before settling down: it is strongly advised to do the work before moving in. In general, we tend to settle down directly and postpone the work until tomorrow. Important rooms in the house include the bathroom. Bathroom renovation should therefore be one of your priorities. Adopt a soothing and relaxing theme at the heart of this room. The bedrooms, kitchen and living room are also not to be overlooked if there is work needed.
  • Store belongings in a storage unit: if you run out of space in your new home, don’t hesitate to store your belongings such as furniture, appliances, cardboard boxes… self-storage or someone close to you. This will allow you to gain space, but not that. Your belongings will also be stored safely, well-kept.
  • Take care of your change of address: when you move, you are obliged to inform several social organizations. Once you have obtained your new address, you must notify the FCA as well as the administrations. Tell your employer about this change of address. You also need to update your identity papers.
