Since we have noticed that the KnowS community is currently in moving fever, we have compiled a compact checklist for you. Basically, moving can be divided into 3 blocks:
1. Old home 🏬 2. Day of moving 📦 3. New home 🏡
The KnowS community can help you with anything on your moving day. Post now for free what should be done for you on this day:
✔️ Cancel apartment in good time by registered mail.
✔️ Clarify whether a new tenant needs to be found.
✔️ Clean out and dispose: In the community you will find motivated helpers who will be happy to do this for you.
✔️ Dismantle furniture, pictures, door signs: Our handy community will be happy to help you. Should you have to pay for a new coat of paint for the apartment, you will find inexpensive providers in the community who will be happy to help you in their spare time.
✔️ Organize moving boxes.
✔️ Organize final cleaning (note: do not forget to clean the garage, basement, mailbox, etc.). Also for this you can easily advertise a cleaning job at KnowS.
✔️ Notify your employer about the date of moving: In many places you have 1 day off at your disposal.
✔️ Empty the mailbox.
✔️ Have the electricity meter read.
✔️ Apartment handover, handover protocol, keys (also cellar and mailbox).
✔️ Organize vehicle & helpers: Without further ado, under the category "Moving & Delivery", you'll find strong arms to support you.
✔️ Organize snacks for helpers
✔️ Organize childcare service / pet sitting if needed: Need flexible carers? No problem for the community.
✔️ Reserve parking space
✔️ Set up a furniture placement plan
✔️ Provide toolbox and cleaning supplies
✔️ Organize new apartment handover, acceptance protocol, keys
✔️ Helpers for assembly: Of course, your belongings not only have to be transported, but also assembled. Maybe you have ordered a nice piece of furniture, which you still have to pick up. For all these services you can find support in the community.
✔️ Repair: Even if you are careful, something unexpected can always happen. Don't worry: having things repaired instead of thrown away is exactly in line with KnowS' mission.
✔️ Have curtains cut: If you also want to enjoy privacy in your new home, you can find skilled seamstresses in the community.
✔️ Personal touch: Do you enjoy a personal touch? Let the community create door signs, door mats and more with your own personal style.
✔️ Provide light bulbs and lamps for the first light in the new apartment: For this, you can easily find a craftsman from your new surroundings on knows.com. Then you already know a local address in case you need support again.
✔️ IT infrastructure: Just like light, a properly set up IT infrastructure is also advantageous. For this you will certainly find a person from the community.
✔️ Insurance: Large train actions always carry the risk of something getting broken. Therefore, don't forget to take out or adjust your household insurance as well as a liability insurance.
✔️ Record or document defects, report to household insurance if necessary.
✔️ Report change of address to
🏤 Post office, possibly set up mail forwarding order (early)
📝 Municipal office (residents' registration office)
💡 Electricity, water and gas company
🧑🏽🏫 Kindergarten, school, university
🏥 Health insurance as well as other insurances (incl. for example rent deposit insurance)
💂🏻♀️ Army, civil defense and fire department
📨 Subscriptions (magazines, newspapers, telephone providers)
🚚 Home delivery services
👴🏻 AHV compensation fund for self-employed persons and pensioners
