Moving to a new home always demands some serious thinking to be done. Moving across countries need more planning than moving within the country. As there are many expenses to be taken care of while moving, creating a spreadsheet list of all your expected moving costs keeps you on track on everything you spend your money on.

Time spent on planning and working out the plan will undoubtedly save time and money in the long run. Definitely, the right choice of packers and movers in dubai makes a significant impact.

  • The final utility bills of your old home should be accommodated in your spreadsheet list.
  • Repair and maintenance charges that are likely to be charged by the owners to be kept in mind.
  • Call your utility providers to set up water, power, gas, television and internet for your new place.

  • Make a list of everyone who should know your new address and send out letters to them letting them know of your new plan.
  • Keep your bank informed of your new place of stay so that you will not miss out on those important bank papers and statements.
  • Frame a plan to move out during the off – season. This will ensure that you will be awarded with a cheaper and economical bill by the movers and packers.
  • If you are moving to an international destination, it is good to remember that the airfare and hotel rates will be on the higher side during the summer months and many of the amenities will be overcrowded with the seasonal visitors leaving you no chances for a peaceful house shifting process.
