General checklist for Home relocation

You may have unnecessary stuff that you don’t or seldom use. You must effectively reduce the inventory and should decide which items can be sold and which can be given away to the scrap merchant. If you need new furniture and utility items, order them much earlier and arrange for delivery when you move into your new home. Check for your vehicle insurance whether it includes transit insurance which may save you enough money from buying a new insurance cover. Just in case you are not using the services of professional Packers and Movers, you may start talking to insurance companies in the absence of comprehensive insurance for your car.
