Make sure your possessions are insured for transport and storage
Have your new home professionally cleaned before you move in – there is nothing worse than moving into someone else’s dirt!

Clearly label boxes, particularly if your possessions are going to be in storage for any length of time.
Redirect your mail, cancel milk and get final readings on meters.
