Moving house can be a lot of work. When you are finally unpacked, read this guide on things you should do right after a move to get your life back to normal again.
Go Grocery Shopping
Professional movers will make sure your refrigerator is empty before moving it to reduce any damage. Once you are settled into your new home, you need to do your grocery shopping to stock up on your refrigerator. Create a shopping list with the essentials that you need for the month, as well as any food you need for your kid’s lunch packs.
Learn Your Home
Now that you are moved, it’s time to get to know your new home. Find out (and teach your family) where the home security system is, the fuse box, water heater, valve, important outlets, etc. Make sure your smoke detectors are working and that everyone in your house knows how to evacuate the home during a fire.
Get your utilities up and running
Now that everything is set up, you need to get your utilities up and running. Make sure your utilities are properly registered to your new address. Get your water, electricity, and internet up and running. It is also a good time to get your mail set up to your new address and look into essential services such as health care providers and insurance companies in your new area if applicable.
You might find yourself needing more space after a move. Try having a garage sale once you get settled in or consider storing away your belongings in a storage facility. Master Movers is a professional moving company with storage facilities across South Africa.

Moving to a new neighbourhood can be intimidating. You may not know how to meet your neighbours after a move and that can make you feel very alone. If you’re looking to chat with your neighbours and make friends, we have a few tips to help get you started.
Introduce Yourself With A Kind Gesture
The first step to making new friends or meeting people is to introduce yourself. There are lots of ways you can introduce yourself. You can host a housewarming party and invite everyone to your new home or if you have kids, you can schedule playdates with neighbourhood kids of the same age. First impressions matter – show that you are a caring neighbour with acts of kindness such as sending cookies to your new neighbours or a bottle of wine.
Go To Community Events
A good way to get to know your neighbours is to attend community events. Look for local community events on social media pages or ask around for info. You can probably attend community events at places of worship, or your local gym, or you could attend a local concert and live music events to meet new people. Remember that certain areas might still be practicing social distancing so keep your distance and take precautions during events. Don’t forget to hand out your phone number to potential new friends so that they can keep in touch with you.
Spend Time Outside
Let the new neighbourhood get used to seeing you around by spending some time outside. You can take walks around the neighbourhood if it is safe or simply greet neighbours walking by while you are sitting on the front porch. You can also take your kids to local parks, or find outdoor sporting hobbies.
If you see a “for sale” or “to let board”, make sure you refer your neighbours to Master Movers – we will give you a voucher to spend to your heart’s content.
