10 Awesome tips for preparing for your next move – Adelaide Real Estate Agent vlog #086


Moving day is never going to be
completely stress-free but there are some things which can be done in advance
of the day to help make it much more bearable. Hi I’m Marie McWilliam an Adelaide
real estate agent with Harcourts Williams Property and in these videos I
look at all things real estate. Today’s video is part 1 in a two-part series of
10 hints and tips on how to make your moving home as smooth as possible. Connect your internet. If you’ve moved
home recently and experienced some of the challenges of dealing with getting
your internet connected you know it can be a source of great frustration
especially if there are teenagers or young adults in the household and nobody
needs that stress. To save you the frustration of moving into your new home
without internet connection contact your internet service provider at least three
weeks before you move. Connect your energy. When you move house you need to
make sure the previous owners or tenants have disconnected the energy and you
need to have it reconnected in your own name. Call your energy provider. Many
providers only need one or two business days to reconnect you so it’s important
to do this just before you move. No power, no gas, is no fun on the first day you
move in. Have a plan for children and pets so they’re not in the way of
removalists on moving day. Ask a family friend or family member to take care of
the kids for the day and to pick them up before them removalists arrive and
encourage the kids to pack up and label their own box of special things before
moving day so they can find these treasures as soon as they move in to
their new home. As for pets try to stick to your usual routines as much as
possible in the lead up to moving day and on the day itself confine them to
one closed room while the removalists are coming in and out of the house.
Carriers are a great idea when transporting cats and make
sure you put familiar smelling bedding in the carrier with the cat. When you
arrive at your new home have one room as your pets room and fill it with familiar
toys and smells so they feel at home. If you have cats give them a few weeks to
get used to their new home before letting them outside and if you have
dogs take them for lots of walks around the area so they can get accustomed to
their new surroundings. And for both your kids and your pets try to keep routines
as consistent and familiar as possible. Update friends and family with your new
address information by sending around a text message or email with your new
address and if applicable home phone number and make sure you change your
postal address and have a redirection plan put in place with the post office
as soon as possible and notify the post office immediately via your address and
then contact businesses and government bodies to make sure you don’t miss out
an important mail. No one likes bills, but you still need to
receive them thanks for watching and I’ll see you tomorrow with my remaining
five hints and tips to close out the 10 things to do before moving into a new
house.
