A move is always associated with stress and a lot of work? It doesn't have to be! We are happy to give you advice on how to make your move as stress-free as possible and move into your new home happy and relaxed. With our ten most important moving tips below, moving can also be fun - we promise!

Communicate change of address
To ensure a smooth transfer of your new addresses - especially with regard to notice periods - the respective institutions must be informed of the change of address in good time. This applies in particular to current contracts, subscriptions as well as health insurance companies, banks, insurance companies, associations, etc.
Over the years, one or the other no longer needed item accumulates. Start clearing out early, because everything you sort out now, you do not have to move with. You don't have to dispose of everything. If you have enough time, you can sell what you no longer need on the Internet. Or you can donate it to aid organizations. This way, clearing out has a double positive effect.
Request special leave from employer
If you have it contractually agreed use your special leave - if not then politely ask your employer. Early and friendly communication is the key.
Prepare children for the move
Moving means leaving one's familiar surroundings. This could spread fear and anxiety among your children. Calmly explain the reason for the change of residence early on and create clarity with your children. Also assign small tasks that the children can handle - this way you are part of the move from the beginning.
Re-registration of supply contracts
Register your contracts for electricity, gas, telephone, etc. in good time. When moving, also read and note down all meter readings for a smooth process. Internet and TV connection as well as the telephone should be installed in advance in the new apartment.
Work off checklist
Early and structured planning and organization helps a lot to avoid stressful situations. So that you always have an overview of the current status of activities and know what is still pending, a checklist for all involved helps. Here you can find our checklist.
We recommend that you inform the neighbors about your move in good time. On the day of the move, say goodbye to the old neighbors and exchange contact information. The new neighbors will also be pleased if you introduce yourself after moving in. With this gesture, you can ensure a good relationship in the neighborhood from day one.
Request no-parking zone
If the move is done with us, we will of course apply for the no-stopping zone. Otherwise, you can apply for the no-stopping zone at the public order office, which will allow you to officially close off the area with official traffic signs.
Everything is done, the apartment is ready and the joy is great. Share this joy with your family and friends at a housewarming party.
