New Homeowner’s Move-In Checklist

Moving into a New Home?

Moving into a new home is thrilling, but it’s also a high-stress life event. Singh Insurance and Financial Services wants to make sure your move goes as smoothly as possible. Whether you’re a new resident to Clermont, FL or setting your roots down elsewhere, we have assembled this handy checklist to help you get settled.

  1. Insure First – This is an obvious bit of advice from us, but it can make a world of difference. Having your home insurance already set up is a good idea just in case some unhappy accidents happen while you’re moving your stuff into the new home. A mortgage lender may also require you to have home insurance.
  2. Plan Your Move – If you plan to rent a moving van, or plan to hire a professional moving service, make sure you do your research ahead of move day.  Always read the fine print of any contract you sign and be sure you know the liabilities the company will cover in case your stuff is damaged in transit.
  3. Packing and Inventory – Start with decorative furnishings first and work your way down to those items you use every day. Now is a great opportunity to start keeping an inventory of your belongings. Not only does an inventory list make sure you know what you have, but it can also be an invaluable resource in the future if you ever need to file an insurance claim.
  4. Transitioning Smoothly – Remember to inform the post office of your change of address and submit address change cards to important institutions such as your bank and insurance. Notify your new utility companies of your move-in date to make sure your gas, electricity, and water are running when you get there. Transferring your records to new doctors, licenses, and schools ahead of time is also a good idea.
