Connecting your utilities is not the most glamorous of moving chores, however, it has to be taken care so you can have a comfortable first night in your new place.
Calling Utility Companies
A timely connection is key when hooking up your new utilities, which is why it is so important to call the companies long before you move in. With so many people constantly moving in and out of new areas, utility services are in high demand and are often booked for weeks.
If you are unsure on what provider is the best to choose from in the region you are relocating to, call area utility companies to compare costs and available packages. You will not have to be present when your electric, gas and water are turned on, but you will need to be home when the telephone, television and Internet service provider makes your initial connection.
Making a Schedule
Developing a utility schedule of expected start dates is an excellent way to assure your electric is on in time to flick the switch when you first walk in the front door. After all of your utilities are on, connect with other local services in the area to make you feel more at home.
Once your water and gas is turned on, run a warm bath and relax in the water. Moving stress can get the best of you, making you miss out on some of the greatest parts of starting a life somewhere new.
