This is the time to have a "clear out" of the articles accumulated over the years in attics, garages and sheds. It is also advisable that your children do the same with toys etc they no longer use.

It is also sensible to empty the fuel tanks of lawn mowers, motorbikes etc and defrost and clean fridges and freezers at least 48 hours before the move.
