This celebratory moment when you’re finally ready to leave your property. In this episode Phil Spencer looks at the things to do before moving out.
Moving is moving. All the memories that live in your home will stay there and it can be emotional to move on. You might find like Phil did, that you stand in each room and say a heartfelt goodbye!
In this episode of Season 3 of the Move iQ Podcast, we address the ways you can prepare for the emotional rollercoaster of moving – and the practical realities of it too.
Whether it’s putting useful documents together in a file or leaving a welcome note for the new owners, there are lots of things you can do to make moving easier for everyone involved.
Why should you listen?
- Learn how to prepare your property for its new owners
- Which little jobs you may have forgotten

- Where to put your keys after you close the door for the final time!
What to do after accepting an offer
The first thing you can do is to celebrate! Yes, things could still go pear-shaped, but this is a major milestone.
In the following days and weeks, there’s going to be lots to do. If you’ve moved before, you’ll know that this process usually takes longer than you expect. That’s why we’ve created our Moving House Timeline and Checklist. It takes all the stress and planning out of your move and lets you get on with the important stuff.
What you need to do on moving day
There’s excitement. There’s a bit of nerves. And there’s a very long to-do list.
Do you know all the jobs you need to get done on moving day? It might seem like a lot, but you can make the whole process a lot simpler. From making sure you’ve got a stash of teabags with you, all the way through to dropping off the keys, get your FREE Moving Day Checklist which has everything covered so you don’t miss a trick.
