To the Réunion as elsewhere, changing accommodation can be complicated to organize, especially the first time. We offer this practical guide.
First, you need to estimate the number of boxes and the number of pieces of furniture and household appliances you want to transport. This will allow you to assess the size of the commercial vehicle For rent.
If in doubt as to the size of the vehicle, contact one of our agencies, one of our advisers will indicate the vehicle best suited to your move.
Termination of the lease :
Before moving, you must terminate your lease with your landlord or your real estate agency. Check your rental agreement for the notice period in order to write your termination letter. Send a letter with acknowledgment of receipt.
Transfer of your subscriptions:
Contact your suppliers to inform them of your move and indicate your new address.
Read from the water meter and the electricity meter:
When you leave, you must read the information on the various meters (water, electricity).
First of all, make sure you have the necessary equipment for the move (cardboard, bubble wrap, tape, etc.) and sort it out, get rid of broken, damaged or no longer used items.
Then, evaluate your transport to move the non-removable or old furniture. Recent furniture is often easier to dismantle and more practical, but is weakened. It is more convenient to transport them in one piece. Feel free to add paint tape for the corners. Similarly, collect several leaflets and magazines for packaging your dishes or bubble wrap.
For your furniture, do not forget to keep all the screws and nuts in a resistant bag after disassembling them. This will prevent you from losing them in the transport of the vehicle.
Regarding your clothes and your books we recommend storing them in less bulky bags and / or small boxes so that it is easier to transport.
Take advantage of the move to clean your devices. Remember to unplug and empty your fridge a few days before. Avoid reconnecting it immediately, wait until the next day.
And finally, do not forget to properly dispose of the waste water from your washing machine, dishwasher or dryer. You will avoid damaging your other property in the rental vehicle.
Moving alone can be a real ordeal. Contact your friends so they can help you move. Make sure they are there on the day of the move.
