As moving is a stressful endeavor, it is easy to forget many important things in the process that can result in last minute panic. In order to keep your move organized, make sure you take care of all the essential tasks mentioned below that can sometimes be forgotten while you are busy focusing on the bigger details.
Change the locks: You never know who all might have the keys to the locks of your new house – previous homeowners, old tenants, contractors, etc. Before you move into your new home, it is therefore a good idea to replace the locks.
Deep clean the house: Even if the previous occupants had cleaned the house before they moved out, it might have collected some dust while it was vacant for whatever time. So, make sure to clean it thoroughly before moving your stuff in. If you are too busy or tired to do the deep cleaning yourself, consider hiring a professional cleaning crew to do it for you.
Change your utilities: Call your current utility company ahead of time to inform them about your move. You may have to cancel the services with them and setup services with a new company depending on where you are moving. In some cases, a technician visit may also be needed before they could turn on the services at your new place.
Update your address: Receiving important mail at the wrong address can result in some major problems. So, one of the very first things you need to do at least 2-3 weeks before your moving date is to file a change of address with the post office. Besides that, you must also update your address at other places, such as with your insurance providers, banks, credit card companies, shopping websites, etc.
