Other Costs to Consider when Moving Home

It's important to consider some other costs if you are looking to move house or home in 2017. Quite often these little things add up and can actually affect your monthly budgeting once moved from your old property and into your new property.

Mail Redirection

The Royal Mail can setup mail redirection from your old property to your new home. Prices start from £31.99 for up to 3 months mail redirection and 12 months redirection within the UK costing £62.99. It's important to do this to make sure that you have the time to switch and update any other service providers, store cards, credit cards, banks, utility companies and more. With an ever increasing risk in identity fraud, the last thing you want is an important bank statement falling into the wrong hands!

Home Insurance

Quite often with the purchase or a new home, you will need to ensure that your new property is insured and covered with adequate home insurance. Be sure to shop around for home insurance deals and offers using comparison websites such as:

You can often receive a great deal on home insurance by going direct to some other providers. Some popular and highly rated home insurance providers include:

Utilities - Your Water Supplier and Switching Energy Suppliers for Gas and Electricity

When you are moving home, its important to let your water, gas and electricity supplier know you are moving home. Quite often they will need meter readings from you to close the accounts down and send you a closing invoice / bill for each of the accounts at your current address. Many will also take a forwarding address to forward on any other correspondence and other bills. Many suppliers can help you switch your energy to the new home that you are moving to. However once again, be sure to check your options and compare prices and offers online using comparison websites. Some of these services may help you compare offers:

Tip - Try and have an old invoice or bill handy to estimate your overall electricity and gas consumption.

Life Insurance

With moving to a new property, you will need to reconsider your current life insurance cover.

  • Is your new property of higher value?
  • Do you have a larger mortgage?
  • What would happen to your property and your family should the worst happen?

Be sure you have adequate life insurance cover to suit your needs. Quite often you can amend your exisiting policy with your existing life insurance provider, but again shop around and see what offers are available for a new life policy cover. You can compare quotes on these websites:

Telephone, TV & Broadband Packages

With more and more of our everyday life being connected online, it's important to ensure that you organise a communication package to suit you and your family when moving to a new home. If you have a package at your existing home, it's often an idea to give them a call and see if you can move your services to your new address. Most have home moving teams that can assist you with transferring telephone, TV and broadband packages into your new house. If you are interested in switching providers, then be sure to check that you are free to move providers, as others will often charge cancellation fees if you cancel a contract early or decide to move to another provider.

If you are looking for a better package or new deal, then be sure to check out these providers for their latest offers and bundle packages for your new home.
