You can follow the below steps to move into a new home.
Step 1 If required, book a professional removal
company to help you move. If you are taking your white goods
with you book a reliable service firm to prepare them for the move.
Sort through all your belongings and sell or give away any
unwanted items. Start collecting plenty of boxes (if the
removal company don't provide them) to transport your belongings.
Inform all service providers of your change of address, including
DEWA, Etisalat/DU, Bank, credit cards etc.
Start packing and label boxes clearly. Start taking down any
fitted items that are coming with you (e.g. shelving and pictures
etc). If you have any pets arrange a home for them on the day
of the move. Start using up any frozen food and buy small
supplies until you move.
Step 3 Return any
borrowed items, such as DVD etc. Cancel deliveries of
newspapers, drinking water, milk etc. Organise your plants for
the move and make sure they all have proper tubs to transport them
Step 4 If necessary, defrost and clean the
fridge and freezer so it is ready for the move. Pack a box of
personal items that will be needed immediately at your new home
(e.g. light bulbs, toiletries, kettle etc). Contact your
removal company to confirm their arrival time and notify them of any
last minute details.
Final step - Moving-out day

everything from your old property, write down your meter readings

Check all windows are closed and doors locked. Hand keys
into the estate agent or landlord. Move into your new property.
