Sign up to quidco. Get your broadband through them. BT offer on at the mo is £125 prepaid credit card plus £130 cash back which reduces the overall bills by over £250. You kitchen fitters and bathroom installers often have trade accounts with the likes of b&b so often cheaper for them to order your kitchen and bathroom. Use quidco for cash back deals on appliances.

mark every box i.e bedroom 1 kitchen etc etc.find the cheapest broadband now. gas/electric join moneysavingexpert energy club. will be the best deals straight to inbox when you say you want it. i.e send me the cheapest supplier every time i will save £??per year. inhavw mine set to £50.

Use quidco and topcashback.co.uk when posssible for cashback.

House Insurance
I renew every 12 months and mostly threw quidco/topcashback BUT ive never made insurance claim.

Moving and weddings are suppose to be the most stressfull things in life. Mine has been simple.
When i moved 11 years ago 3pm i rang the removal company as was getting late. They never booked us in so they sent 3 vans and 10 guys. we were only moving 5 minutes away and we were out and in within a hour.

The most stressfull thing for me is clothes shopping with the wife.

in the winter have a warm room. so ur not wasting money heating the whole house. thick curtains help keep the heat in. if you have a water tank only light it when ur having a bath and use the kettle to wash dishes. if your drying cloths in the house on a line make sure to open a window for about 20 minuets a day to let the moisture out or you might a chill effect.

ao.com and currys seem like a cheap place to buy white goods

Use royal mail to redirect all your mails/letters. It's not free but it'll save you a lot of hassle. Then when you get more time you can change address etc

Definitely this. I moved three months ago and am still getting redirected mail from places I had never considered. We got six months just to be sure.

If you share a surname it's a one off payment, however every different surname in the house will require a full payment.

I used an online conveyancing lawyer, conveylaw in Wales. they were about £900 cheaper than local solicitors for a standard sale and purchase. I would definitely recommend them.
#11
As mentioned above, use Quidco. We saved loads and did well with cash back
#12
Sell all your belongings , buyer collects .. Then buy all new stuff for new house .. Simple.
#13
Don't use Harmony Law or Ross Coates (same companies) for conveyancing. We didn't but our buyer did and they did nothing for months and in the end they had to dismiss them and employ another conveyancing company.

Label all your boxes and where they want to go in the new house or at least number them and have a list of where they need to go.

AO.com are good for appliances but expect phone calls trying to sell you extended warranties and also if they offer to take away your old appliance for a cost tell them no as most councils will dispose of old appliances for free. In fact when AO delivered our new washing machine they offered to take the old one for free anyway.

having moved lots of times one thing I can say is try and get the keys a few days before you move in to give the house a proper clean. makes life so much easier when there's no furniture etc in the house. Plus if you're not changing the carpets get them cleaned you'll be shocked at how much dirt comes out of them. If there are no curtains or nets measure up now and have them ready for when you move in last thing you want is all your goods on show for the whole street. get rid of as much stuff as you can while you're packing as you won't realise how much junk you have. try and fill your kitchen up first as that has the most stuff in it.
Good luck with the move hope you're happy where you go.
