After having sorted all your papers, several administrative formalities have to be carried out before your move.
If your move is due to a new arrival in your family, it is possible to have a moving allowance granted. To benefit from it, contact the nearest town hall in your area.
For school children, inform the school by sending a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt requesting unsubscription and the school certificate. To register in the new school, simply contact the town hall or the rectorate (depending on the class attended by the child)
There are many applications for admission to a nursery school: the sooner the application is made, the more likely your child will be accepted!
Don't delay any longer and take out your agenda to make an appointment with your gas/electricity provider to cancel your contract and read your meters.
If you just want to transfer your phone line to your new home with the same operator, don't bother, a simple phone call is enough. On the other hand, if you are considering changing your operator, remember to terminate your telephone line by sending a registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt (see standard letters above)
It is important to inform your insurer of your change of residence by registered letter with acknowledgement of receipt in order to transfer your home insurance, which is mandatory if you are a tenant (see standard letters above)
Don't forget to change your car/motorcycle insurance because the premium and rate depend on the geographical area where the vehicle is used and how it is parked.
An indispensable and often forgotten advice: the reservation of the parking space for the truck on the day. Indeed, if you do not have a private parking space, it is possible to obtain a temporary parking permit from the town hall.
You must also communicate your new address to all third parties who may need it for this purpose.
However, do not forget to communicate your address to the magazines and newspapers to which you subscribe, to your mobile operator, to your bank, etc. (see model letters above).
The most important moving advice : do the IRR. Finally, the time has come to sort, give, sell, barter and, why not, throw it away! One month before your move, a good part of your boxes must be made to move as serenely as possible. Mark the boxes by content, part, degree of fragility, etc. Moving boxes are available in the shop FretBay and are delivered within 48 hours maximum.
