6 Tips for a Smooth Transition to Your New Home

keys to homeAs moving day nears, you may feel overwhelmed by all the work on your plate.

You can relax and get everything done with minimal stress if you keep a few basic tips in mind.

1. Contact Utility Service Companies

Call local utility companies in advance to make sure your San Antonio home is ready for living in come moving day.

2. Do Paperwork Ahead of Time

It can be a nightmare to try to get mail forwarded, your car registration switched, and insurance information updated all while unpacking at your new home.

Start getting those things taken care of right now while your move is still a couple months away. It’s easier to run such errands while you’re still in a familiar part of town and in your usual routine.

3. Hold Onto Receipts!

You never know what can count as a tax deduction, especially if your move is work-related.

4. Pack First What You Need the Least

Begin by boxing up items you know you won’t need in the next few months. This will make it easier to focus on the rest of your belongings later.

5. Pack Room by Room

Keep boxes and packing materials in each room, label them clearly, and pack things up in each room as you’re able. Avoid packing items from different rooms in the same box.

6. Pack a “First Night” Box

The first night in your new home will be much more comfortable if you can quickly access items like:

● Paper towels
● Scissors
● Pliers
● Cleaning supplies
● Toilet paper
● Soap
● Paper plates, cups, and some cooking utensils
● Some pots and pans
