The move and change of address

1. The move and change of address

A move requires preparation... To avoid any problems, it is best to think ahead and prepare your move, rather than improvise. If you're moving into a studio or a place with two-rooms you don't need to use professionals, they are strong and effective, but too expensive for such a small move! Choose the good old method which has proven to be effective: enlist your family and friends, rent a vehicle and get on the road!

 For the vehicle

Use a category C utility vehicle i.e. 9 m2. The rental agencies have almost all identical offers. The problem is if you're a young driver. In all cases, you must be at least 21 years old and have held a B licence for at least 12 months. Most agencies impose a surcharge, which is often costly, for drivers under 25 years old. The best solution may be to ask one of your parents to drive the vehicle. Finally, please note that the rates are less expensive during the week.
Also, make sure that everything can fit in your new building: can grand-mother's cabinet go up the staircase? Can the sofa bed get through the entrance passageway?

 Boxes

The moveDon't let anyone other than you pack the boxes, otherwise you won't know how to find your things after the move. Remember to have a system when packing your boxes (all kitchen items in the same box, etc.) and clearly indicate what they contain. Remember to prepare a survival box for your first day in the apartment. To avoid having to unpack it all straight away.
You may be able to get some boxes from hypermarkets. With a little luck, you can get a few, find out the delivery days and times!

Change of address

A few days before the move:

  •  notify your insurer,
  •  notify your bank,
  •  cancel your electricity, gas and telephone accounts,
  •  open new accounts,
  •  transfer your subscriptions to magazines or newspapers to the new address,
  •  complete a form at the Post Office to forward your mail.

A few days after the move:

  •  notify the tax office of your change of address: the tax office and the treasury of your former home, the tax office for your new home.
  •  register on the electoral register.

Specifically: You can also declare your change of address directly online: My public service

And / or redirect your mail online for a period of 6 to 12 months renewable: Redirection The Post Office
