To ensure that moving homes is a hassle-free experience for you and your family, it is good to prepare a checklist. Being organised will help you tackle most things on your to-do list before you move, and not miss out on anything along the way. While you may be taking a top-up loan to buy furnishings and furniture for your new space, remember that you can also use funds from the loan to pay for these must-do moving measures. Take a look at what they are.

Make sure you update your home’s security systems:

Changing the locks of your new home is an essential move you must make to maintain safety. Enhance the safety of your family members by choosing an advanced smart locking system, CCTV cameras, and a fully digital home security system. A good security system starts at Rs.10,000, depending on the size of your house.

Shift your furniture using a reliable mover:

Shifting all your belongings one from place to another is tedious to do on your own. So, it is important to hire an agency that will help you transport everything while ensuring that nothing is damaged in transit. Depending on the size of your house and the amount of furniture and household items, packers and movers will charge you upwards of Rs.20,000. This cost increases if you’re shifting from one city to another.

Revamp the circuits and plumbing if necessary:

If you are purchasing a property that isn’t new, pay attention to faulty wiring, leakages, and so on. If you don’t tackle this now, it can pose a threat to your health and culminate in a large expense later on. Enlist the help of a professional electrician or plumber to rectify these problems. Sometimes, new properties may also have faulty wiring and plumbing. It is best that you check these in advance, and get them tackled from the get-go.

Pay attention to communication and finance matters:

Once you shift, ensure that you provide a change of address to your bank, employer and your telephone service provider. You will also need to update it on other documents such as your Aadhar card, PAN card, health insurance policy, investment documents, and passport. Also, visit your bank’s branch in the new locality and consider transferring your account to the neighbourhood branch. This will make transacting much easier for you in the long run.
