Where will your pets be on moving day? With you all the time or, a better option, with friends or family for the whole day.
Pets can be an inconvenience on the day of the move so taking care of the furry loved ones is a smart move for the day.
Connect the Internet!
Imagine moving house and having no internet for a few days or weeks. How horrifying would that be, especially for kids.
Its a good idea to call your chosen internet service provider and talk to them about how much notice they require before your move, to be connected on the day or day after your move.
Organising that will keep the family happy.
Its a good idea now to start recording all the senders of mail so that you know all the people and organisations you need to notify of your change of address.
You may receive some mail only once per year, like car registration notices so the sooner you start the list the better.
If you own a Post Office box you the change of address is easier. Contact Australia Post to find out more about that.
