Welcome to your new home! Don’t you get the feeling of disorientation when you move to a new city? When packers and movers in Delhi have helped you with the process of relocation and you are just left with your personal work, you keep on tickling your head because you have absolutely no idea what things you are supposed to do after a move.
The period of post-relocation should also be systematic as you have to live a life for the coming years at that place only. Here is the checklist to do after you have relocated to your new home. One of the most important things to do after the move is to organize your time the right way so that you don’t have to deal with any stress or confusing situations.
Here are some of the most essential things that you should do post-move:
• Organize time after relocation
The time of your post-move starts as soon as you step into your new house. Perhaps you would feel relaxed when you have moved and everything is arranged at their places and the hurdles of the move are finally over.
Unfortunately, due to the bunch of things that you have to do after shifting to your new house are just waiting for you. The truth is that you don’t have much time to lie down and relax. If you don’t organize the post-relocation time now, then you will have to suffer later.
Make a to-do list that contains the tasks you have to do when your relocation is over.
Get down to work!
• Learn the new things about your new home
Set on an exploratory tour around the residence as you are new to your new home territory. Check if there are any leaks or damages that are pre-existing, check if there is any infestation so that you can get it repaired because it can spread in every part of your house. Also, check for the reading of water and electricity meters.
If you have a small child at home then it is important to check if there are any places that are not safe for him/her. For instance, the gap between the railings, drawers that he/she can open and might end up hurting his/her own finger, arrange for bed guards if the beds are quite high and there is a risk to fall for the child. Check the locks and latches of doors and windows.
• Change your address
Regardless of whether you have relocated to the neighboring town, relocated to a new city, or moved cross country, the address is supposed to be changed. It is important to get your address changed as soon as possible otherwise you will keep on receiving your important mails and everything on the old ones only.
Out of all the work that you need to do after you have shifted to a new house, the work of getting the address changed should not be left for later. It should be done as soon as possible.
By any chance, you are late, then take the contact details of your new owners or rentals and send them some money so that they can forward your mails until your address changes.
• Take your child’s admission as a priority
If you have moved with your child who is school going or college going then you consider his/her admission on a priority basis to continue their education. The school you choose for your child should have everything so that he/she can get the best possible education.
Try to take suggestions from the people at your work, from your neighbors, read the reviews online, and then shortlist at least five schools to be visited. Set some deadlines for the same and start filling the forms of the best and affordable schools.
Make sure that the school is not very far from your house because if the school is far then it takes time for the child to reach home in the afternoon and then he/she hardly gets time to play, eat, self-study or sleep.
• Health care providers
The stress of the recent move can definitely affect your body and you never know how your body is going to react to the new environment of the new city. It is important to find a family physician for you and your family and if you have a pet then find a vet for it as well. Here also you should welcome the recommendations that come from different people in the vanity.
Always keep your specific medical needs in mind while looking for a doctor and make sure you make the right choice between the primary doctor and a specialized doctor. Experience is also something that matters a lot when you are looking for a doctor. Also, carry your medical history with you when you go to a doctor as there are many medical terms that we don’t know and only doctors understand them.
• Make some new friends
Relocating to your new home can be hard for everyone. The side effect of the move is a phenomenon which is known as separation anxiety. Moving away from your friends and family makes you depressed. Also, at that time you don’t know anyone in the city.
Making new friends in the city or in the neighborhood will definitely help you to settle down quickly in the new environment. Also, you can spend some time with your colleagues after work so that you are able to interact more with the people over there. Join some club, gym or learn a new language or take lessons to learn something, you might find friends there who share the same interests as you.
You will gradually settle down at your new place and adapt to the new environment. At the same time, do the tasks that are important to be completed on a priority basis. Movers and Packers Delhi has professionally trained teams that can help you in the process of relocation.
