11 Things To Take Note Of Before Moving To Your New Home

Preparing to move
After you have found and settled the administrative works of your new residence, you need to prepare to move your possessions to your new home. We understand the process of moving can be tiring and frustrating, so we are here to share 11 pointers with you below as to how you can ensure you leave nothing behind in moving.

1. Notify your current proprietor
Let the owner of your current house know which day you will be shifting. They will probably have a list of items to check with you before you terminate the lease with them. Also, they will most likely fix a date by when you should give back the keys.

2. Reach out to your new proprietor
Get the contact of the owner of your new house and notify him or her when you will be shifting your household items in. Here is a list of questions you should ask him or her:

- By when will you get your home keys?

- Which area is convenient for you to park your car or the truck that will be helping in with your moving in?

- Will the lift be large enough for bulky furniture?

- Is there any pointer you need to take note of before shifting in your household items?

- Which payment method is preferred for the first month’s pay?

3. Ensure you are covered with insurance as a renter
This might already be included in your rental contract. Renters insurance guards your possession against loss or damage in the event of burglary, fires, or flooding. Although there is a maximum amount of insurance you can claim in such events, the premium per month is considerably small.

Should you already have renter insurance for your old residence, you just have to update your plan with your new home address and your agent will notify you should there be any changes in the premium.

4. Decide if you would employ licensed movers
Licensed movers would ensure minimal problems when shifting your belongings. They will also handle all the bulky and weighty items. Below are questions that might help you determine if you need to hire professional movers:

- The proportion of money you are willing to spend on moving and the price of hiring professional movers

- The price of hiring movers typically is based on the duration of moving all your belongings and the per hour cost

- How many belongings you would need to shift and if you can handle the transportation and lifting by yourself

Some movers you can consider include Mesa Moving, who will help you to move your belongings at affordable prices.

5. Arrange for your utilities to be installed
Your rental contract will definitely show which utilities you are accountable for. Usually, most leases would include water and rubbish, and you will have to arrange for your gas, electricity, and internet consumption. So, be sure to look up gas and electricity plans that suit your needs before you move in. You wouldn’t want to move into your new home only to realize that you don’t have any electricity or gas.

6. Update your home address
To update your address, call USPS. It is absolutely hassle-free – input your new address, indicate if you will be staying at this residence for short or long and if you are staying with your family or not, and choose your forward date. Your forward date should be the same as the date you will be shifting over to your new address.

Remember to update your bank, credit cards, medical institutions, and any other subscriptions you might have. Additionally, update your family and friends on this too!

7. Look up your new residence and its surroundings
You should find out more about the available amenities and facilities nearby your home, such as the supermarket and convenience stalls. Other than these, you can find out about nearby gyms, bars, food outlets and transportation options nearby.

8. Purchase new furniture and appliances for your new home

You can consider buying a whole slate of brand new furniture for your new home. If you are not considering that, but your new home is bigger and you require any new furniture, we would advise you to buy at dominant furniture stalls such as Crate and Barrel or Ikea.

9. Use external storage if you need more space
However, if your new home is smaller or there is household possession you would not need at your new home, you can look at storage, such as PODS and MakeSpace, where they will safeguard your items.

10. Prepare for moving out day
One aspect that many forget and result in a rough moving experience, is to begin packing your belongings promptly. You should begin with non-essential belongings you would need on a daily basis, such as art pieces, books and CDs. After which, you can begin packing clothes and utensils you do not need.

Following this, you should arrange those items you need on a daily basis such that they can be packed quickly on the moving date. Dismantle furniture wherever possible early so that your moving day will be smoother.

When fitting items into boxes, mark all sides of the boxes so that you can see what items are contained in a box more conveniently. This is such that you can identify the boxes even when they are piled on top of each other.

11. Tidy up your old house before moving out
Although the owner would probably hire cleaners to clear up the residence after you have shifted out, it definitely does not hurt to tidy up and clean before you hand over the keys. Additionally, ensuring that the residence is returned in its best condition can better guarantee your security deposit.

Renting and moving has never been this painless
If you heed the advice in this article, then we can guarantee the process of moving to your new residence will be as painless as it can be. When the day to shift your belongings is nearing, remember to obtain your new keys, and try them out to ensure they are working, then you are all ready to shift into your new home.
