Proper planning can make or break your move-in day and the more you stay organized the easier the moving process will be. Lucky for you, we put this checklist together, so you can be well on your way to enjoying your new home with everything from hot water to electricity. Check out these 6 helpful moving tips to make your move-in day a breeze.
Update Your Address
Requesting mail forwarding from your post office isn’t a permanent solution. Be sure to update your address with your bank, insurance, employer, and driver’s license, so you can receive important mail without interruption.
Change Your Locks
A simple task that will give you peace of mind is to replace or rekey the locks on all the exterior doors.
The sooner you notify your water, gas, and electric companies the better, especially during peak moving season when it may take a little longer to set up.
Locate Your Water Shut-Off Valve And Circuit-Breaker
Get familiar with the inside and outside of your home in the event, you have to shut off your water or restore power due to excessive leaks or power outages.
Connect TV And Internet
Shop around and figure out which internet service providers are available in your area and schedule installation ahead of time to get the appointment slot that’s most convenient for you.
