Things not to forget when moving abroad

Written by Robinsons Relo
Storage Specialist

Moving abroad can be a stressful time and it can be a challenge to remember everything you need to do before, during and after the moving date.

To make sure that you are in the know, we at Robinsons have given you a few helpful reminders to be on your way with.



Contact all your utility providers for your new and old home. Your water, gas, electricity, phone and cable needs to be switched on and your new home on the day you arrive and switched off and final bills sent from your old home.

Mailing Address

Have your post redirected to your new home via the post office. Then, once you have a bit of time change all your addresses to your new address.


If you have children, make sure you notify the school when you will be taking your children out. Make sure before you make the big move you have checked out the local schools and more importantly secured them a place.

Subscription, Bills and Banks

The change of address you have submitted to the postal service is only temporary and will delay the process of your mail getting directly to you. If you receive regular post from a certain person, business or bill give them your new address directly. Do this for your banking records.

Vehicle Registration

If you are moving abroad and taking your car with you, check the vehicle regulations of the town you are moving too. Some require cars to have certain licences, fittings to be on their roads.

Voter Registration

Make sure that you are on the new electoral register for your new area. You will be able to access most of this information via the Internet or your local council.
