In case you fail to do so you might have to suffer loss in terms of confidentiality and the papers that are important to you. Also, you can give collecting all your postcards as a responsibility to any of your neighbors whom you can blindly trust. You can also give them access to little funds so that they can forward you all the cards at you get there at the old address. You need to inform all your friends, and co-workers about the move if you wish to remain in touch with them. One thing more that you can do is to cancel all the subscriptions that you can afford to like the services that provide home delivery and the memberships that you have an access to. These include gyms, clubs, hobby groups, organizations, and much more.
  • Arrange for the transfer of utilities: Ensure that prior to shifting you make all the utilities that include electricity, the water supply, gas, the phone connection, and Internet available. If you can then ensure the proper functioning of central heating at the new apartment after you disconnect it from the existing one.
  • Get the records organized: Next you need to keep the records of your medicine handy by collecting the same from the medical officer that you were visiting at your old place. You also need to ensure that you have gathered all the relevant documents from the school of your child, in case you have one of that age. In all this act of shifting do not forget to make your child comfortable about the same by having a word with him.
  • Clear all your debts: Make it a point that you start clearing your bills and the piled-up debt the day you get informed about the shift. This way you can ensure that you do not leave any of the obligations pending. Also, in case you have any time that you had borrowed from your neighbors then do return the same. Also, to make sure that you get the entire amount of the security back, you get all the repair work done prior to moving out.
  • Use the floor plan wisely: Pack all your stuff in the cartons and label the same. Make it a point you organize the cartons accordingly and label them in a way that the ones who unload the trucks can place the cartons at their relevant places by having a look at the label on the carton.
