6 Things To Do Before You Move Into Your New Rolwes Home

Whether you are preparing to move into your new home in St. Charles Missouri, or elsewhere, we have the checklist for you! Let’s be honest, moving into a new home can seem like a daunting task. But if you organize your to-do list, and get started on it a month or so out (No not 5 days before you close), you will be less stressed and feel confident that nothing is forgotten

1. Transferring Utilities

While this one may seem blatantly obvious to most people, you would be shocked how many homeowners do not remember to check this item off of the list. Don’t forget to also set up internet, phone and cable as well as the more obvious utilities such as electric, gas, water. Rolwes Company makes this process very easy, by having a list prepared for all the utilities you will need for your new home in St. Charles or anywhere else.

2. Changing/Updating Your Address

Your address is connected to so many aspects of your life that you may not even realize. From forwarding your mail, to maintaining subscriptions and loyalty programs, to banks and credit cards, to insurance, to checkbooks, to car registration and driver’s licenses… We think you get the point. When you update your address, you update your life!

3. Take Off Work

Ok, we get it… This sounds like another obvious one. But for first time home buyers, they may think that taking off one day is enough. But a pro tip for moving into a new home is to plan the closing day close to a weekend, and if you can help it, a Holiday weekend. You would be doing yourself a favor to have at least two days off of work, because no one loves living out of a suitcase!

4. Schedule Move-In Work

Are you wanting to install a new fence, Garage Door Opener, or some other home improvement in the first few weeks of living in your new home? Don’t wait until a week or two before you close to set these services up, or else you will be at the mercy of the contractor’s schedule!

5. Prepare to Pack

As you inch closer to move-in day, start to throw out or donate things you don’t need and take note of what needs to be replaced. Save money by collecting free moving boxes from local businesses and retailers or use laundry bins, suitcases, and large bags to transport items. It’s also a good idea to label or color coordinate all boxes according to what room they go in to expedite the process for your moving company.

Lastly, an open-first box is a must! You should include in this box everything you need to survive the first 24 hours in your new home. Think air mattress, a fresh outfit, a toothbrush, some snacks, water, and extra cash. You will thank yourself when the time comes. Trust us, it’s a not-to-be-missed item on your new home checklist!

6. Recruit Friends and Family to Pack the Trucks and Unload Them

The more hands on deck the better. Those first few days of unpacking can be made a whole lot easier if you recruit (or rather, entice with food and drink) a couple of close friends or family members for the first big haul. To make the process run smoother, set deadlines and figure out the most logical order of unpacking. Before you know it, your new home will actually start looking like, well, a home.
