When moving from one home to another, the work isn’t done once the move has been completed. Chances are that your mind is racing a mile a minute with what next steps you need to take to start making your new property feel like your new home. As a family operated moving company with decades of experience since 1947, our professional moving team at All Points Moving & Storage have pinpointed 4 important things you should do as soon as possible after moving into your new place. Our goal is to not only help you every step of the way before and during your move, but to also serve as a reliable resource after you’ve settled into your new home as well.
Pull Out the Inventory List
If you were a smart packer, you more than likely created an inventory list of all your belongings that were transported during the move. Begin unpacking those boxes and check off all of the items that have arrived. It is critical that you identify any missing items as soon as possible so that those can be addressed with the moving company. By partnering with our team at All Points Moving & Storage, you can rest assured that every item we transport during your move will arrive safe and sound in your new home.
Set Up Utilities
Utilities are an important aspect of a functioning home, which is why it is so important to get your utilities up and running as soon as possible after a move. In fact, some people decide to get these set up the minute they have access to their new property. This allows for your home to cool down or heat up depending on the time of year that you’re moving. Other utilities to consider setting up quickly after moving include the Internet, cable, phone service, water, etc.
Unpack the Important Items
Unpacking isn’t something that has to be done in one day. Unpack your essentials quickly after your move so that you have the important things, such as your bed, clothes and toiletries set up quickly. Chances are that you are worn out from the move, so focus on getting a good night’s rest so that you can be productive the next day.
Clean Your New Home
This may sound odd that it’s already time for you to clean your home, but just think about the moving process for a few minutes. Our movers were in and out of your home dropping off all of your belongings. You’ve got boxes stacked up that were used during the move. Now is the time to give your new home a good cleaning to get rid of any dust, dirt and garbage that built up during your move. If you’re simply worn out from the move, it may be worth hiring a professional cleaner to come in and give your new home a quality clean.
So, the unfortunate news is that there is still work for you to do after moving. The good news is that our team at All Points Moving & Storage is here to make sure that your move goes as smoothly as possible.
