Moving into a new home can be a lengthy process. You may have visited so many houses, met with realtors and now have extensive paperwork to be done with the various contracts you entered into. In the middle of all this, you finally move in but now the hard part starts. You need to arrange the entire house. So here are some things you need to do when you step inside the house.
- Check the boxes
You need to first of all inspect the boxes that were brought here by the removalist Brisbane to Melbourne. Hiring a professional is better than doing it yourself since they know what they are doing but now you need to make sure they have done their job well. When entering into the contract, you may have agreed on certain policies on damages so if you notice any damaged good, resolve them immediately before they leave. You cannot be checking all boxes so label the ones that have fragile items and check only those. If you do have damaged goods, try to resolve peacefully since you don’t want to get in any legal cases just as you move in.
- Unpack the essentials
Once the house removals Brisbane have dropped off the boxes at your place, you cannot open up everything and start arranging them. As mentioned before, label all boxes so that you can pick out the essential items such as the bed and bedding along with the bathroom essentials and arrange them first of all. After a long day of arranging your new home, you of course want to crash in your bed and have a good sleep so laying your bed is vital. The next important room is the bathroom. The kitchen comes next but you can eat out for a few days till things settle down. The rest of the rooms can be done after that leisurely.
- Write a to-do list
Essentially you should have this before you move in but if you don’t, now is the time to make one. Add all the important things you need to do around the house as soon you step in. Other important things such as changing your address with the localities should also be done.
- Connect major appliances
If you have brought your appliances such as refrigerator, dishwasher, microwave oven etc. install them. You need to be able to store food for later or heat up some leftover food from yesterday. For this, your appliances need to be in place. Also, install your washing machine since you cannot be using your hands for it.
