Things to Do before Moving into a New House

August 5, 2017 by adminBlog

Moving to a new home is an exciting process, but it can also be overwhelming if you procrastinate or forget to make a plan. The moving experts at Next Door Relocators have helped numerous families and individuals make the big move, and there are certain steps they recommend to help your move go more smoothly.

Assess your space. Instead of packing up your belongings according to the rooms of your current home, pack them into boxes and label them according to the room you want them to go to in your new home. When packing, don’t bite off more than you can chew. If dealing with large furniture or fragile belongings overwhelms you, hire a professional to take over the job.

Prepare for your move by making sure your home insurance situation is worked out. Without it, a small accident during the moving process can turn into a disaster. Make your home livable by ensuring the utilities and amenities are set up. Connect your internet package, make sure the power is turned on, and make sure all utilities are set up in your name.

Make sure to forward your mail. Take care of this ahead of time so no mail or packages slip between the cracks and get lost in the system. Send your new address to friends, family members, and even online accounts where you make frequent orders.

Make yourself a moving package to make moving day easier. Include scissors, tape, dust cloths, allen keys, tools you’ll need to assemble furniture, and bags labeled with odds and ends like screws. In addition to a moving box, pack a separate bag with the toiletries, clothing, and items you’ll need during the first few days in your new home.
