Preparation is important before moving into your new home. There is a list of things you need to confirm, set up, change, etc. The more prepared you are, the smoother the transition will be for you. Read on for some tips to help you identify some things you might not have thought of and how to prepare your new home for your arrival!
Confirm your move-in date.
Confirming your move-in date should be first priority. Knowing whether the date will delay or is right on schedule is important, especially when you’re hiring a moving company. Closings can sometimes come with hiccups, causing delays from days to weeks, so be sure to track down a set-in-stone date.
Update your address.
Make sure you update your address ASAP! Mail-forwarding can go on for a while, so the sooner the address change has been made, the better. You’ll also want to reach out to friends and family about the change, so they’re aware of your new location! A fun way to do this is by sending a friendly, “we moved” postcard from your new address!
Updating your address is also crucial for your banking accounts, credit cards, business, etc. Less confusion, the better.
Schedule home improvements.
If there are some improvements you need to be done pre-move, scheduling them ahead of time is the best decision. You’ll be able to get all the work done that you need, without you or your belongings in the way. When your move-in day comes, you’ll be walking into a newly renovated home. Doesn’t that sound awesome?
Transfer utilities/TV internet services.
Transferring utilities are important on your to-do list when you’re moving into your new home. You want to make sure that you have electricity, heat, air, cable, internet, anything that you see necessary for your home life. Make these calls and schedule appointments at your convenience and get it all set up and ready for your big moving day so you can relax after unpacking.
Hire a moving company.
