Tips For Your Moving Day


A clean home is a happy home. If you’re moving into a new place, take the time to clean it from top to bottom before you move in. If you don’t have the time, that’s okay! Hire a professional cleaning company to do it for you.

If at all possible, it would be best to move during the week. There would be fewer cars on the road and you would have an easier time contacting utility and service companies if anything went wrong.

In order to have a successful move, it is important to keep energy levels up. Take short breaks every so often and offer refreshments to everyone. Energy drinks can also help maintain high energy levels.

Encourage children to by move some of their belongings into their rooms first before they unpack some of their boxes. This will help them feel more comfortable in their new home. As they help with the move, it will also give them a sense of responsibility. Let them know that they are a valuable part of the family and the move.

After The Move

Call your friends and family to let them know you’ve moved safely. Ask if they can visit soon and help you unpack. It’s always nice to have company after a long day of unpacking and settling in. If you have time, go explore your new neighborhood. Get to know the people who live near you.
Give electrical items a chance to settle and get to room temperature before you operate them. This is especially important for items like computers and TVs. Once you’ve plugged everything in, turn it all on and test it to make sure it’s working correctly. Make sure to also test your smoke detectors and carbon monoxide detectors.
Check for any damage as soon as you can as some insurance policies have a specific time period for making a claim. If you notice any damage, take pictures and immediately call your insurance company. If the damage is beyond your insurance company’s coverage, then you may need to call a professional to fix the issue. If you have a homeowners or renters insurance policy, make sure to report any damage to your policy as soon as possible.
It’s normal to feel a bit down for a few days after the move due to all the hard work and excitement, and children might feel a bit unsettled for a few days. However, make sure to give yourselves time to adjust. Spend time exploring your new home and getting to know your new neighbors. There are bound to be lots of questions, so be prepared to answer them all. And don’t be afraid to ask for help!
If you feel up to it, you can throw a housewarming party and invite your own friends and family to come and get together.
