Moving from your old home
Most of the time, moving house is a real pain! To make things easier, we've put together a moving checklist to help.
Four to six weeks before your move
Check your new address to make sure you can get connected to the nbn™. If you can, sign up online with Australia Broadband. If you're an existing customer, simply use the same email address on your existing account when you place your order.
Find and book your removal company. Don't forget to check their online reviews and make sure they have all the relevant moving insurances.
Make a list of all the organisations you'll need to change your address with so you don't miss any
One to three weeks before your move
Arrange your post to be redirected with Australia Post to your new place
Contact your utility companies and let them know when you are moving. That way you will have everything connected before you move in!
Contact your insurance companies and arrange insurance for your house and contents at your new place. If you have car insurance, don't forget to tell your insurance your new address
Book cleaners for a good professional clean after you've moved out of your old place.
Check to make sure you have enough moving boxes.
The day before
Defrost and empty out your fridge
Get a portable cooler and buy some ice to keep your fridge items cool during your move
Once your stuff is out of your old place, turn off the power and take note of your gas and electricity meter readings
Before you leave, lock all of the doors and windows
