Remember to keep all your important documents such as driving license, passport, Voter ID card, medical records and other essential cards/documents in one place, so that it doesn’t gets lost while you are packing larger items. These documents are really very vital, and you may also need them after you shift to your new home immediately, for various purposes like- applying for a local mobile number, or to hire a LPG service.
  2. Keep all your contact information, telephone diaries, and other important items carefully. You might need them at the moment you shift to your new home. You must also carry all the contact information of your friends and relatives with you, so that you can communicate with them whenever needed.
  3. Pay the bills of all your local services which are pending, like that of the Newspaperman, milkman, cable operators, neighbourhood grocery stores and etc, before leaving your current home. At time we often forget to pay small bills, which isn’t a good sign.
  4. Remember to collect all your clothes from laundry, dry-cleaner, tailor or other local iron-man. Usually people forget about about these tiny stuffs. And after moving to a new city it wont be easy for anyone to come back, and collect those small items.
  5. Remember to request change in address for postal communications, like your magazine subscription, share and bonds certificates, and etc.
  6. Remember to put a label with your new address to your current home/office. So that, in case any documents come to your current address, then it can be posted to your new address. This could be very helpful especially if you are shifting your home or office in the same city.
  7. Remember to clear your current house before you leave, this shows how sincere you are and especially if you are in a rented house, this will please your landlord.
  8. Remember to keep some spare funds because, once you move to a new city, you may not have access to the funds/bank accounts until and unless you transferring your accounts to the new city.
  9. Remember to give away all the keys of your current home to the landlord before leaving, if you are in a rented house. And make sure to keep keys of your new home or office with you, before moving.
