Moving to a place can be both exciting and stressful, with a lot of things to keep in mind. As a contractor specializing in builds in Bedfordshire we at New Build Contractors are here to help make your transition as smooth as possible. Lets explore some overlooked tasks when moving into a home.
Before you start packing up your belongings it's an idea to create a "moving calendar." This will help you keep track of all the tasks that need to be completed and their respective deadlines. Some key dates to remember include;
Your move in day
Dates when you should take time off from work
When you need to record meter readings
Coordination dates for friends or family who can assist with pets or children
The activation date for broadband services, at your home
Moving house presents an opportunity to declutter and streamline your possessions. Take the time in advance to tackle those overflowing storage spaces and decide what items you want to keep, donate or discard.
Don't forget! Pack your essentials separately. Make sure they are clearly labeled.
Here are a few things you'll want to have handy as you move into your new home; phone chargers, important documents, devices and spare keys.
When it comes to choosing a moving company make sure you gather quotes before making a decision. Remember that you might need to arrange parking, for the moving van and let your neighbors know about your moving plans.
One common oversight when moving is updating your address. Transferring records. Create a list of all the places where you receive mail to ensure that it gets redirected correctly. Additionally don't forget to transfer your records to your healthcare providers and inform schools, workplaces and other important entities about your change of address.
With planning things can sometimes go off track. That's why it's always good to have a plan in place. Consider having a sitter lined up or arranging temporary storage in case there's any delay with your move in date.
Lastly remember to take some time to enjoy your home amidst all the chaos of the moving process.
At New Build Contractors our goal is not just constructing houses. Creating homes where you can truly feel comfortable and, at ease.
