Moving into a new house is known to be one of the most stressful tasks of a person’s life. There are the usual things like getting used to new neighbors, finding a new school for your kids and helping them get accustomed to the new environment and there are the more difficult tasks like moving your pets from the old place to the new home.
You will also have to contact your telephone company and ask them to move your old land line number and internet connection to the new location; a task that would take a couple of days or sometimes weeks depending on how your service provider is booked so plan ahead. But moving is something that happens to everyone; either moving abroad for a job or a better standard of living, it is time we get used to it and keep in mind certain tasks to help make the overall task a bit better.
One of the first things to do is to check if your new living space requires CCTVs for protection against unwanted attention and burglary attempts. Talk to your new neighbors and ask them about the crime rate in the general area and if you think CCTVs are necessary, contact a reputed after hours electrician who can help you choose a suitable CCTV and install it in an appropriate location. If you have any kids and you would like to monitor them while you are away, then you can install a CCTV in your kids room so you can keep an eye on them at all times.
If you do not like the lighting system present around your house you should look for good facilities management services in Melbourne that can help you achieve the look and style you require. You should also contact your bank, leasing company and your insurance company and inform them that you have changed locations and give them the new address so that they can get in touch with you and you can be sure that your personal letters will not be delivered to that address anymore. It is also advisable that you give the new house a professional deep clean.
Have them steam the carpets in the house and ensure that they thoroughly clean every tiny part of the house. Most previous tenant give the house a deep clean but it is best that you do it again because there is the high probability that the house has been empty for long periods of time. Make it a point to also cut spare keys for the new house.
