Must-Have Essentials on Your First Day Moved Into a Newly Built Home

So, the big day is almost here. You’re about to move into your new home and you want to create a to-do list that includes everything that needs to be done before you arrive. What exactly should be on that list?

You don’t have to wonder anymore, because we’ve taken care of the details for you. First thing’s first: if you’re moving from state to state, you need a long-distance moving and packing company. And then, on your first day, you’ll need the following:

  • Utilities: Make sure everything is set up beforehand. You don’t want to walk into your new home only to find the electricity isn’t on, the water isn’t running or the gas isn’t connected. Call your utility providers ahead of time and set up an activation for the day before you move in. This will ensure that everything is ready to go on Day One.
  • Cable/Internet/Phone: Call a few weeks in advance of your move to schedule cable, internet, and phone installation for your move-in day. These are creature comforts that most of us have come to fully rely on, and you’ll want to have them up and running as quickly as possible. There’s no better time for this than move-in day. Consider an afternoon installation so you’ll have the morning to get things organized.
  • Appliance Delivery: Are you ordering new appliances for your new home? This is fairly typical for new homeowners. Go ahead and schedule delivery for the day of your move-in. Unlike with your cable, try to schedule for the morning rather than the afternoon. It’s easier to get your appliances into place before your home is full of boxes and other items that will surely find themselves strewn about the house. Having appliances squared away ahead of time just makes everything easier.

Moving provides enough stress on its own. That stress is only heightened the farther you move from your old home to your new one. When you have your utilities, cable, internet, phone and appliances all scheduled and taken care of well ahead of time, that stress is reduced as much as it possibly can be. You can better handle all of the unexpected things that are sure to come up on moving day.
