Moving within The Netherlands, Europe or overseas.
Just like anywhere else, moving house in the Netherlands can be a stressful time. You may have found your dream place, secured a mortgage or lease, and signed the contract, but there’s still the issue of actually getting yourself and all your stuff there in (hopefully) one piece. In fact, multiple surveys put moving house right at the top of the list of stressful life events. One survey by British energy company E-on found that moving can be more stressful than divorce and starting a new job. But it’s not all bad news. With a little planning and the help of the right moving company, you can minimize the hassle and hit the ground running in your new place.
Take care of the busywork in good time
- Life is paperwork, and moving is no different. There’s plenty of busywork to take care of, and drawing up a checklist in good time can alleviate a lot of worry and stress. You’ll want to take care of the following:
- Give your current landlord notice
- Inform city hall of your move, and register in your new municipality if necessary
- Update the address on your residence permit
- Notify utility companies
- Arrange mail forwarding
