Moving Into Your New Home

Moving Into Your New Home

Moving a family, whether across town or across country, is a complicated task. You may well hear yourself asking questions such as “Where’d we get all this stuff?” or “Where’s the plates?” The following hints and checklists can make moving a bit less chaotic.

Before carrying in the first box or piece of furniture, inspect your home carefully. While Key Land Homes stands behind our craftsmanship, we do not cover any damage caused by movers or moving into your home.

Take precautions to protect vulnerable surfaces such as hardwood or resilient floors. Cover rails with moving pads or blankets. Remove doors where furniture might be a tight fit. You can protect carpet with ribbed, plastic runners.

Professional movers should have insurance for any damage they might accidentally cause. Friends and relatives will not. They are also unlikely to have the training and practiced skills of professional movers. If you are moving yourself, organize the schedule to avoid rushing and include rest breaks. People who are tired or in a hurry are more likely to hurt themselves or your belongings.

Whatever else is going on, at dinner time assemble the family for your first meal together in the new home. Sit across the card table from each other, smile, and say “We made it.”

One last suggestion – moving into a new home is a lot of work. However well you have planned the details, becoming truly settled into your new home takes most families some time. Be realistic in your expectations and enjoy the process of making your new house into your new home.
