It is always important to ensure that you are getting all your mail. Make sure that all your old mailing addresses have been changed to your new address.
2. Inspect All Delivered Boxes
When moving, it is extremely easy to misplace something or leave something behind. If you have hired movers, once they leave, you must inspect all your boxes to ensure that there is no damage or broken goods. Ensure that nothing has been left behind in the moving truck as well. Although movers are reliable, it is important to double check.
3. Get your Utilities Up & Moving
If you haven’t arranged the connection or set up of the main house utilities prior to your move, do so immediately! Naturally, the first utilities that get connected are the power and water. After having taken care of the utilities, consider making the arrangements to set up the Internet, phone, and any other services.
Check the locks on all outside doors to ensure that you and your family are the only people that have access to your new home. Ensure that all your windows and doors close securely as well. All smoke detectors should be functioning as well as fire-extinguisher.
5. Recycle Packing Materials
Unpacking will leave you with a ton of gar bage that you will no longer need, as well as boxes! Boxes can be saved for any future storage or moves, but all other materials should be properly disposed of. Show the environment you care by properly recycling the packing materials you no longer need!
