Obtain Address Change postcards from the post office, and meet your local postal team at the same time. Send out address changes in time for your new mail to start arriving on moving day.
It's courteous, although not legally required, to leave any existing fire extinguishers in the home when you move. If there aren't any in your new home, purchase up-to-date ones and know that you are protected.
If you have some odd jobs that need doing after you move in, we have a couple of excellent handymen to recommend that do carpentry, painting, small drywall jobs, some plumbing, grass cutting & yard clean-up.
