Arrival at Your New Home
Once you arrive at your new home, direct your movers to unload and place items into appropriate rooms, and be careful to place tarps or protective rugs over carpets and hardwood floors to prevent damage. Check outlets, switches, appliances, and plumbing, and make sure you’re familiar with your breaker box, water shutoff, and water heater.
Finally, begin to settle in! To make your new living areas more familiar, make beds, display family pictures — even begin brightening up bare walls with artwork, wall decor, and photographs. Call your family, friends, and loved ones to let them know you’ve safely arrived, and begin to greet your neighbors.
