Moving can be a time-consuming and effort-intensive task. By doing your move yourself with a few friends or relatives, you can move for little money. This way you only spend money on the rental of a van. However, outsourcing your entire move does not have to be expensive either. The costs depend on various factors. For example, the amount of furniture and how far your new home is. With Shift Out's smart relocation calculator, you can calculate the cost of your move within 5 minutes, and get an accurate estimate of what to expect. Whether you choose to rent a van or let us handle your entire move, we offer affordable solutions that fit your needs. Contact Shift Out today for a stress-free and budget-friendly move.
What to arrange when moving house?
Moving house involves a lot of things to consider, beyond just the move itself. It's important to say goodbye to items you no longer need before packing everything smartly to ensure nothing is damaged. Smart unpacking, such as using labels to identify items that belong in each room, can also save time and effort. Don't forget about important tasks like transferring your energy contract and updating your address for subscriptions.
At Shift Out, we understand the challenges of moving, which is why we offer a free moving checklist to help you stay organized and not overlook anything. Our comprehensive checklist covers everything from decluttering to energy contracts and subscription updates, ensuring a smooth and stress-free move. Contact Shift Out today for all your moving needs.
When to report a move?
At Shift Out, we know that timely communication of address changes is crucial for a successful move. We recommend starting the process at least 2 to 4 weeks before your move to ensure that everything is moved on time. With our assistance, you can easily update your address with all relevant parties, including utilities, subscriptions, and other important contacts.

When to deregister from the municipality after moving?
We understand that registering with your new municipality is an important part of the moving process. It's crucial to deregister from your old municipality in a timely manner and register with your new one within 5 days of your move. However, did you know that you can register up to 4 weeks in advance? This means you can avoid last-minute stress by taking care of the registration process early.
If you're moving within the same municipality, you only need to report a change of address. In most cases, you can easily register and deregister online through your municipality's website, saving you valuable time. At Shift Out, we're here to support you every step of the way during your move. Contact us today to learn more about our comprehensive moving services.
How long to keep a cat indoors after moving?
At Shift Out, we understand that moving can be a stressful experience for pets, especially for cats. It's important to take extra care when moving with your furry friend to ensure their comfort and well-being.
To help your cat adjust to their new surroundings, it's best to keep their familiar belongings, such as their basket and litter box, during the move. Introducing new items right away may cause your cat to feel even more stressed and disoriented in their new home.
Take the time to observe your cat's behavior and comfort level as they settle into their new surroundings. With patience and care, your cat will soon feel comfortable and at home in their new environment. Contact Shift Out today to learn more about how we can assist you in your next move, including our pet-friendly moving services.
