Moving into a new home can be a lengthy process if you aren’t prepared. Making a moving checklist can guarantee that all of the necessary tasks are performed. Here are some tips to help you out.

Transfer Utilities

Did you set up your physical utilities in your new home yet (your water or electricity)? You may not have the same provider or company you previously used if you move into an area that they do not cover. Ensure that your utilities are set up at least a month before your move. By doing this, you ensure that your account is up to date when you move into your new home and that you and your family aren’t left in the dark. If you are new to paying for utilities, consult a provider. Remember, this should be done in advance especially during the busy festive season when utility companies are swamped with account queries.

Take Photos of Valuable Items

Accidents can happen. You can prevent damage to your precious properties by hiring a reputable and professional moving company. For added protection, however, you should take photos of your valuable items and important documents. Photos can help you to keep an inventory of your belongings and the condition they were previously in for your moving insurance. Items to include are computer monitors, fragile glassware, statues, and locks. Items such as jewellery and laptop must be removed by you before the move. 

Schedule a Cleaning

You’re ready to move into your new home but was it a previously-owned home? If so, there is a good chance that the previous owner did not thoroughly clean the home. You need to especially clean out the bathroom before use for your safety and hygiene. Schedule a cleaning service to clean out your home properly before moving in. If you are unable to hire a cleaning service, you can grab a broom, all-purpose cleaner, and glass cleaner and do a cleanup yourself.
