There is a lot to keep track of in the weeks leading up to moving day – from making sure no items are left behind to choosing the right West Palm Beach moving company to ensure your new home is ready for move in. It’s reasonable that a few things might slip your mind in those days leading up to your relocation, so here are a few things to make sure you add to your to-do list and schedule before you move and before it’s too late.
Schedule Before You Move
At least two weeks before you move, make sure that you schedule your cable and internet to be connected. If you don’t schedule an appointment ahead of time, their slots might be booked, and you might be without internet for a few days – if not longer.
Even before setting up your cable/internet, schedule an appointment to have your utilities connected at the new home and turned off at your old one. It is advisable that both home’s utilities be connected for moving day.
If you are plan on new furniture in your new home, it is recommended that the deliveries be scheduled several weeks in advance, so that you aren’t left sleeping on the air mattress for your first week.
Even if your home is brand new, there might still be some cleaning to be done. Once your items are moved into the new home, it will be difficult to thoroughly clean your home. Schedule for a cleaning service to come before your local or long distance movers arrive with your belongings at your new home.
From painting to new fixtures, remodeling projects – large and small – should be planned before moving day. This will ensure the stress of moving doesn’t compound with a renovation all within those first few weeks of moving in.
