Before moving to a new home, a number of things need to be done to make the change a satisfactory one without any headaches. But all in good time, because many people try to act early, preferring to do various things.
Moving to a new home is not always easy, but it also does not have to become a nightmare. For this, you need to follow some valuable tips to apply before moving into a home.
Many things can be started a month before the decisive day of the change to a new dwelling, among them: gathering material that will be necessary to pack the things of the old house; make sure the goods are secured through the removals company that will do the transport; change the name of the address in documents and in entities, such as banks, post office, finance, insurance, among others, as well as in newspaper and magazine subscriptions, for example; cancellation or modification of contracts for water, electricity, gas, telephone and television (cable).
As days go by, the objects can already be packed and properly indicated in the boxes (especially for fragile pieces).
To ensure comfort and safety, before moving to the new house, some guidelines and steps can be taken and analysed.
The first step is to do the final survey of the dwelling, analysing: doors and windows; outlet voltages; if the new house already has water, electricity, gas and telephone, as agreed; the firmness of the ceiling and walls – especially those that will receive holes to hang objects; if there is space available to unload the change.
The villas can be inserted in condominiums and can have different schedules for making changes, so be aware of the times to avoid disruption and frustration in the change.
It is very important to check the electrical outlets – if there is enough for the home appliances – and if the space is also suitable for everyone. If there is a need to change the space, action should be taken immediately, especially if the day of the move to the new home is near.
Also, before the change, make all the paintings and installations of watches of water and light – contact the responsible companies with a time in advance to guarantee the installation of them.
When everything is ready, the new home will be the new home of the family, and the next step is the organization of the furniture and other objects and the decoration according to the desired.
