to let - for sale - your move made easy

They say that moving is one of the most stressful things that you can do.

We have created the following guide to hopefully make life a little easier

Finding A Property
If you are looking to purchase a property check out our for sale section

If you are looking to rent a property check out our to let section of the web site.

Both of these contain links to different property web sites where you can view property from a wide range of agents.

Make sure you check to see whether the agent is either a member of the National Association of Estate Agents or the Association of Residental Letting Agents

If you want to know more about Harrow before you move, take a look at the About Harrow section

Moving
Good quality cardboard boxes can be found at http://www.theboxstore.co.uk/

To hire either a transit or luton van to transport your world goods check out this list at Yahoo

If you feel like letting someone else doing the work, use a moving firm

Once you've moved
You'll need to let all the relevant authorities know once you've arrived in Harrow. The following is a list of all the relevant people that you will need to contact.

Try and get a copy of the previous owners / tenants bills as it makes it a lot easier to transfer accounts and stops you from getting other peoples bills.

Water

Electricity
The local company is London Electricity , but you can purchase your electricty from any supplier. Sites such as buy.co.uk allow you to compare prices

Gas
British Gas is the main supplier, but again you can use buy.co.uk to find alternative suppliers.

Telephone
BT is still the main supplier, but you can purchase telephone services from a wide range of companies.

You'll need to register with Harrow Council.
