Moving to a new homeBy Julie DeLong, A-1 Freeman Moving Group 

Moving can be stressful. Very often in the rush to get the moving company in Tulsa scheduled, the boxes packed and determine what you are moving and what you're getting rid of, you neglect a number of key tasks. To help keep you on path, here's a list of things to remember to do to help make your move to Tulsa effortless and uneventful.

Update Your Address. Officially register with the post office your change of address. The USPS should forward your mail for as long as a year after your move. You can let the postal service know about your move about 30 days in advance. This should assure that all your final invoices, financial documents and other important mail is forwarded to your new home at the same time as when you and the professional movers in Tulsa get there along with your items. For those who have children in school, let their school know your new street address too in case you need their transcripts mailed to you. When you arrive at your destination, commence to notify each institution individually. Furthermore, make sure you let family and friends know that you have moved.

Stop Utilities and Home Services. Get in touch with your utility companies in advance and tell them your final billing/service date. This can include your phone, cable, electricity, water, yard care, cleaning services, pest elimination, security system company along with other periodic services such as a dog walker or the Sunday paper delivery. Make certain and match the cutoff date together with your moving company. You won't want to get the electric, natural gas or water stopped before moving day. When you are part of an Home Owners Association, make certain they are cognizant of your last day of residency to protect yourself from any extra costs.

Update Your Insurance Policy and Registration Details. For those who have an insurance agent, contact them to notify them of your move. Including vehicle, property, life and health insurance. Relocating to a new region or a new state may impact the prices you happen to be spending so be sure you make it happen as soon as possible. Additionally, while updating your car insurance, make sure to update your automobile's registration.

Notify Your Company. Should you be moving locally, and not swapping jobs, be sure to advise your employer. They will need to revise their company data and, in some cases, in case you are moving across state lines, may need to modify payroll.

Clean up Your Old Residence. Once the professional movers have gone and before you turn over the keys to your old house, make sure you thoroughly clean, or book a cleaning of, your old house. This can ensure that you get back your security deposit if you're renting. If you are selling your home, and your home is still available on the market, this is a necessity to help catch the attention of potential buyers.

Change/Delete Passwords for Home Environment Systems. A lot of houses these days possess smart technology installed such as locks on entrance doors, heating and air conditioning, lights, and alarm systems. In some instances, you may have password protected apps that you use to manage and keep tabs on these systems. If that's the case, make sure you supply the important information to the future property owner but then be sure you logout or delete any info pertaining to these systems.

Update Your Online Profiles. If you routinely order things online, be sure you update your shipping and delivery home address. This is also a great opportunity to update your profile with your bank, doctors as well as any various other vendors you often connect with online.

Perform a Walkthrough of Your New Residence. When you first arrive at your new property, do a swift walk through to help become acquainted with a few of the key features of the home. You ought to be equipped to promptly find the smoke detectors, carbon monoxide sensors, the electric panel and sump pump--if there's one. Verify to be certain they all are in good condition.

The true secret to maintaining your cool when moving is to use a plan. Using checklists can help you stay organized and make certain that your move is as simple as possible.
