Moving to a New Home in Overland Park? Don’t Forget to Take Care of These Tasks!
As a trusted Overland Park residential moving company, we understand moving to a new home is an exciting and fun time. It’s also stressful, with so many things to try to remember and do prior to moving day. You may have made a list of things to do before you make the move, but there are a few tasks most new homeowners often forget in the midst of their excitement and anticipation. Not to worry, we’re sharing the ‘reminders’ below!
Don’t forget to pack the necessities separate. Nothing’s worse than arriving at your new home only to find you can’t locate the toothpaste, shampoo, or medications. What about the paper plates, Styrofoam cups, and other utensils you may need that first day you arrive?
Be sure to visit the U.S. Postal Service website to change your address. It’s a good idea to take care of this at least two weeks prior to moving so that you don’t have a gap in service or miss any important mail/correspondence that may not get forwarded.
Cancel recurring subscriptions. Whether a magazine subscription or membership to the local gym, it’s important to cancel ongoing memberships or subscriptions while you’re in the process of moving in order to save money. Keep in mind that some subscriptions/memberships require you cancel 30 days in advance to avoid additional charges.
Inform your car insurance provider of your move. While you give your provider your new address and other info, it’s a good time to review your policy.
Take photos of how televisions, modems, computers, video game consoles, and other electronics are hooked up. Unless you’re an electronics whiz, you’ll be happy to make the task of hooking these items back up properly in your new home easier and less stressful. You may also want to reign in the cords and coil them neatly when packing to avoid the frustration of ‘detangling.’
