Before you know it, you’ll be settled into your beautiful, brand new Isenhour home — can you taste the celebratory champagne in your gorgeous kitchen yet? You’re probably on top of all of the big tasks, but don’t let the little things get away… From disconnecting your services to securing transportation for your pet, there are a few last-minute tasks that you can easily forget with all of the excitement of the big move that you can get done now to ensure the easiest process possible! Take a look at our list:
[ ] Make Calls: A few simple calls will go a long way in the first few weeks and months after you move in. Notify your medical practices that you’re moving, cancel your subscriptions, alert utility companies to disconnect your services, and notify employers and insurance providers of your new address.
[ ] Pet Transportation: You know your furry friends better than anyone, so whether they’ll be more comfortable with a friend or a family member taking them to their new home, make sure to secure their ride to avoid any issues. With toys and treats packed for them in advance, they’ll be ready to start their new adventure!
[ ] Overnight Bag: Pack a separate overnight bag with a change of clothes and toiletries (soap, shampoo, toothbrush and toothpaste, deodorant, hair brush etc.), plus medications, towels and washcloths. You’ll be glad to have quick access to these items that you may not be thinking about as you’re getting settled in.
[ ] Furniture/Trash Pick Up: If you’re downsizing and getting rid of furniture or old televisions that are in your current house, make sure to contact your town’s trash department and/or large item removal companies first! Most trash companies cannot handle the large capacity of the trash that might come from moving out of a home, and require separate pick-ups.
[ ] Stock Up: Stock up on snacks like fruit, nuts, crackers, and granola bars, since they require no refrigeration and no preparation. You can easily snack on these throughout the day to stay energized and full. Don’t forget bottled water and juice!
As you gear up to move into your Isenhour home, make sure to keep this checklist handy so that you’re all squared away on the big day.
