Denver Movers Moving In Checklist

You just finished the moving process, and you think you’re all set. After all, you’ve just completed moving across the country successfully. You sold your old home, packed put, and moved all your belongings. You’ve even completed all your unpacking. Hoorah! You’re done, right? Well…not quite. There may be a few new things you need to do before you kick off your shoes and relax. As Denver movers, we have years of experience in the industry, and have helped hundreds of families move into homes in the Front Range and beyond. We have seen which things get forgotten, and why they’re important, which is why we created this moving in checklist:

  • Setup Utilities

    You’ll need to setup the utilities in your home after moving in. There’s nothing worse than losing power after moving in, because you forgot to make sure you were good to go with all the utility companies.

  • Make Sure Mail is Forwarding

    You may enjoy the lack of junk mail for a while, but you’ll regret not making sure your mail is forwarding after you miss you credit card bill. After you move into your new home, check with the post office to make sure you’re receiving your mail.

  • Register to Vote

    If you’ve moved cities, you’ll need to make sure you’ve updated your voter’s registration in your new area.

  • Find a New Doctor

    It might not seem important, but it’s wise to start looking for a new doctor, dentist, optometrist, and other healthcare professionals sooner rather than later. Ask any people you know for recommendations, and check review sites for good options!

  • Take a Look at the Plumbing and Electrical

    Because there was an inspection before you purchased your new home, you may not think to take a look at the plumbing or electricity. But, locating the main water valve and circuit boxes as soon as you move in is a good idea, especially if you’re planning on installing any new appliances.

  • Get New Locks

    This is crucial to your home’s safety. You have absolutely no idea who has currently has access to your new home. Maybe the old owner gave a key to the neighbor for safekeeping, or maybe they lost their key a few months back. Hiring a locksmith to change your locks is important for the safety of you and your family.
