12 Things To Do In Your New Home

Moving to a new home is stressful even when it is a well thought out and positive choice. There is much to plan and arrange, deadlines to meet and other people involved. We often find ourselves standing in empty rooms thinking, “What now?”

The first tip is for the moving process itself; to ensure that the move is easy and stress-free, so when you get to your lovely new home you can focus on the next twelve tips below.

Whether you are moving from city to city, to a new state, or internationally, let the professionals handle it. Call a full service moving company to neatly pack and handle your belongings. When hiring moving and packing companies check their reputation – do they have a reputation of integrity, security and on-time delivery? Professional movers & packers can offer ideas to assist you in your new home or apartment. Our knowledge comes from years of vast experience.

Now let’s talk about what to do in your new home.

  1. First thing to do is to celebrate. People are often so busy with the move and with the gazillion things they need to do that they often forget to celebrate the moment. So the very first thing to do is to smile, celebrate a new home. Here’s from us at U. Santini: CONGRATULATIONS! We wish you the very best in your new home!
  2. Call the new utility companies and service providers. Hopefully the service name has been transferred already but it is important to verify this. Ensure service is in your name to avoid potential liability. This also allows you to check what date the bills will come due, when the garbage is picked up and will prevent these from becoming delinquent.
  3. Gather the family and put together an Emergency Action Plan. Walk through your new home and decide on escape routes in the event of fire, where to go when tornado, earthquake, or other natural disaster hits. Be specific and plan for weather that is common for your region.
  4. Create a first aid and emergency kit. Include phone numbers for your new neighborhood police and fire departments as well as 911.
  5. Locate off switches and circuit breakers. Show everyone in the household how to use them.
  6. Check for smoke detectors and verify the batteries are charged. Test the detector. Do not go to bed without working smoke detectors in your new home. This will ensure your and your family’s safety.
  7. Contact creditors, magazines and other involved parties. Give them your new address to avoid delays.
  8. Conduct a deep cleaning of all surfaces. Even if the new place has been cleaned, many hands have touched surfaces and furniture.
  9. Change the door locks. If you are renting, most landlords will allow this at your own expense. The peace of mind is well worth the cost.
  10. Send your new contact address and telephone number to everyone on your personal contact list. Include a photo of your new home for friends and family.
  11. Go grocery shopping and stock the refrigerator with easy-to-prepare foods such as sandwich fixings. This will come very handy in the first few days, as you are still getting used to the new house, where you keep everything, new neighborhood, etc.
  12. Install window coverings if they are not already up. Privacy is important and this will help you avoid curious neighbors or potential thieves to eavesdrop on you.

With these things done, you can relax a bit and enjoy arranging your new place to suit your unique style.
