Living in a rapidly evolving digital world can make it easy to forget that not everything is online. But when it comes to moving house, there are a number of systems and processes which can be completed on your phone or laptop. Here are just some of the tasks you can complete online when moving house.
Redirect your post
You don’t need to find time during the day to visit the post office to redirect your post, just head online. Once you have an account, simply log on and update your details.
Connect your electricity and gas
Connecting your electricity and gas is easy to do online as many providers offer online access to accounts. You’ll need to disconnect your old property and connect the new one to your energy suppliers and update the billing details as required.
Order your groceries
You don’t have to worry about making time to head down to the grocery store on your first day in your new home. Simply order your food online and have it delivered to your door. Many of the big-name supermarkets offer online order and delivery services including Coles and Woolworths.
Update your address
Log on to all of your subscription accounts, banking accounts and the Government’s voting registry to update your contact details. Many subscription services run on a monthly basis so start updating them as you receive emails.
Check the weather
The internet is a great resource to check if it’s going to be wet or dry on your moving day. If it is going to be raining, don’t panic. If you’re hiring removalists to get your move done, they deal with wet weather regularly, so they’re used to it. If you are moving yourself, you might want to rethink your packaging materials and use waterproof coverings on couches and bedding. Also consider laying down sheets on the floors of your new house so you don’t have to worry about mopping up muddy foot prints.
