Tips for Moving into a New Home

May 25, 2017

What to do when you first move in

When you have passed the moving process and begun living in your new home, there can be a lot of information to take in and a lot of steps to fulfill. Often people forget simple things or stub their toes on walls they’re not used to. But there are a lot of tips for moving into a new home that often goes overlooked. We are here to correct that!

Personal Accounts

Online Information – One of the first things that we always tell people to do when they move into a new place is to change all of their online information. Go to your bills, your banks, your accounts and update them. Another overlooked choice is your phone. Check all of your apps for ordering out or ordering online and changer those addresses to make sure it reflects your new location.

Utilities and Who to Call – Get to know who supplies your utilities to your new place and what your options are. If utilities are included, make sure to ask who they are getting it from on the off chance that you will want to coordinate with them directly as opposed to a landowner or building tenant.

Comparative Rates – Once you are in the new location, see what you’re used to paying and finding the best rates. Check out all the local grocery stores and pizza places and start comparing your options. Settle down and get to know your surroundings.


Mail Forwarding – Similar to changing your online information, go to your previous post office and set up mail forwarding. That way if anything misses through the online information filter, it will get picked up by the FedEx, UPS, USPS servicers easily.

Meet your Neighbors – So, we believe that the best thing to do is take twenty dollars, go to a supermarket and load up on pies. Get as many pies as you can and give your neighbors some pie. Hang out with them and get to meet them. Moving somewhere new is easier and better when you get to know people and that small act of friendship and good feelings are what unite a community.
