Preparing Your New Home for Move In

by Ted Levin on Jan 13, 2015

Purchasing a new house can be a momentous occasion for many people, so to make the transition into a new house just as exciting, you should take some time to read this article on things you can do to make the moving process a lot more convenient.

1. Hire A Moving Company

It might seem like a fun idea, to pack and organize all of your stuff with your loved ones and then unpack it in the new home and make memories. But this is a huge hassle and takes a lot of time that you could be spending enjoying your new home. Hiring a moving company will cut down on the moving time and allow you to focus on making a house a home. You might be thinking to yourself that you are a very particular person and you would rather do it yourself, but with household moving companies like allied, they will do everything for you just the way you like it.

2. Change Your Address

You should begin to change your address with your credit card companies when you find out that you’re moving. A lot of people look for an old mail and could accept offers in your name. You should also have your mail forwarded from your old home because you might miss a few bills or bank cards when you were switching your address. You should also change your address on things like your car insurance and registration.

3. Call Ahead For Utilities

Think about how awful it would be to move in on a Friday and not have any electricity for the entire weekend because you forgot to call and have them turn it on before you moved in. Turning on the electricity, water, heater, and cable is something that you can do before you move into the home so you should call in advance and have everything put under your name and turned on. This way you will be all set for move-in day.

4. Cleaning and Renovations

You might want to clean your house before you move in, hiring a professional cleaning company can make the place feel like a new home. You should also do all of your renovations before you move in. this might sound like a no brainer, but some people move in and then decide they want to paint all of the bedrooms when the furniture has already been put in. So get all the painting done and the appliances put in.

5. Protect Your Windows

One of the first things you might want to do in your new house is to put up window treatments. It might not sound like the most logical thing to do, but as you move in all of your stuff is on display. Anyone passing by your house has a clear shot off all of your belongings. This could save you from burglars. Along with this, you probably won't get a great night's sleep with the sun shining right on your face at the crack of dawn.
