After the Move

Although the move itself has been completed, there are still a few important things to take care of the day after and in the days that follow.

In the Old Apartment

If there are any renovation works to be done in the old apartment, start them immediately. The handover date is approaching inexorably, and any delays mean unnecessary costs.

In the New Apartment

Because your new home is supposed to be created in the new apartment, there is more than enough to do here. First, you should assemble the furniture in their places, install and connect the kitchen, and make it functional. Those who did a good and orderly job when disassembling will find furniture assembly easier now.

Only when everything is assembled, open the boxes and start unpacking. Lamps, decorations, pictures, plants, etc., should be the last to be unpacked.


Every move involves paperwork. Although you've already updated most addresses such as the bank, clubs, and employer a few weeks ago, there are still a few important matters to settle.

Registration and Deregistration

As soon as you've moved to the new address, you are required to register with your local registration office within three days of your move. You will need the completed registration form and an official photo ID for this. You can find detailed information here:


Although you have a few more days for the registration of your car, it's better to get everything done at once. The new address must be entered in the registration certificate within one week. You can find further information on the website of the Vehicle Registration Office.

Once the address in the registration certificate has been changed, you also need to inform your car insurance about the new address and the date of the move. Depending on the new address, this may result in a change in risk, and the policy may need to be recalculated and modified accordingly.

Finances in General

You've already updated most addresses. However, it sometimes happens that you've missed something. As long as the mail forwarding order from the post office is in place, you're on the safe side. Nevertheless, it's advisable to examine your bank statements more closely in the months after the move. This way, you can discover debits for services at the old address that you no longer use. If reported promptly, you have a better chance of resolving such issues than if you notice them a few years later.

Returning Borrowed Items

Whether it's trailers, moving boxes, tools, or cleaning equipment: many items are only needed once during a move and are borrowed. After cleaning everything thoroughly and carefully, return the borrowed items promptly to their owners.

Getting to Know Your Neighbors

Introduce yourself to your neighbors promptly. Perhaps a small get-to-know-you party in the garden with grilled food and drinks is a good way to start. Also, inform friends, colleagues, and acquaintances, so that nobody can complain later. If that's not your style, go from door to door on the first or second day and briefly introduce yourself.

Does Moving Have to Mean Stress?

Although moving can be stressful, it's now done, whether with or without a moving company.

Step by step, your new apartment will become your home and your place of comfort.
