    Before You Move In

    Moving can be very exciting, but it can also be stressful if you’re not prepared. In order to make the transition as pleasant as possible there are a few things you can do ahead of the move. First, make sure to change your address. Stop by the post office and fill out a change of address form. You may also want to call companies whose services you patronize directly in order to ensure that you do not miss any bills or important correspondence. You will also want to update information on your voter and car registration as well as your driver’s license. Prior to move in, you will want to ensure that your utilities are on, and you are familiar with the hookups.

    Contact the local electric, gas, telephone, cable, internet, garbage, water, and sewer companies so services will be available when you move in. In addition, make sure that you know where the main circuit breaker and water shut-off valves for the home are located. Finally, double check the home for safety. Have your first aid kit in place and ensure that smoke detectors are functioning prior to move in. Also change the locks. You do not know how many people had keys to the home before you moved in, so give yourself some peace of mind with new locks.

    Moving In

    With your new home ready to go, the last thing to do is move in. When moving, it is easiest if you move the least possible amount of stuff. De-clutter your old home prior to your move date. Have you been meaning to donate those old clothes or throw out that old mattress? Now is the time to do it! Less to move means less time and hassle. You may also want to use carry on or luggage bags for essentials. Do not let items you use every day get lost in a sea of boxes. Those items should be set aside in suitcases or duffel bags to ensure easy access when you get to your new home. If using mover services, shop around and schedule services several weeks in advance to ensure the best price and schedule to meet your needs. Once you’re moved in, you can finally enjoy your new home in Austin, Texas.
