Well, you need not seek further as Property Queen has come up with a list of tips for all of you who are moving out of your rented place to another.
1) Change mailing addresses
Remember to notify your WiFi provider, landline provider ( if you have one ),bank, subscriptions and more, to change your current billing address to your new address, this will avoid any unnecessary inconvenience on your billing cycle. Best to do it 2 – 3 weeks before your move.
2) Installation of WiFi
Two ways to go about it, if you are canceling your current WiFi service and getting a new one, make sure to have the installation date closer to when you are moving, for example, if you are going to officially live in the property from the 1st of the month, make sure to have them install a week earlier, or a few days earlier, make sure to be there to check on the installation and try out the WiFi, if there happens to be any issue, you can still contact the service provider to check on the connection. The second way is if you are using your old service provider at your new location, please make sure to contact your WiFi service provider 2 – 3 weeks in advance to set a date for them to dismantle the WiFi at your current location and setup the system at the new place. It takes some time to arrange, therefore best to do it earlier just to be safe.
