You’ve done it! You’ve managed to secure a mortgage arrangement and you’ve landed the property of your dreams.

But before you start popping the Moet, it’s time to think about all the things that come with moving properties.

Whether your moving into the property yourself or have purchased it with the intention of renting it out, both come with added pressures and a long to-do list to complete.

You’ll need to let your utility suppliers know that you’re planning on moving out, get quotes on removal costs and begin packing.

Here are five of our favourite start-ups that will make the transition so much easier.
