So you’re finally here, in the beautiful town of Bournemouth. You’ve survived the horrid move and now you’re ready to relax, take a deep breath and enjoy the scenery. But hold that thought for a bit. Once in the city, you’ll need to do some final bits and pieces to truly get yourself settled for good and scrap any nervous thoughts of unfinished work.
Here’s what’s left to do:
Start with the more important things like electric appliances. Unpack and plug the cooker, dishwasher, fridge and washing machine and test if everything works properly. You should know that any damages are covered by the insurance policy which you get as part of a removal service. You would be eligible to receive a refund if your items were packed by the movers and end up damaged.
It’s important to check your stuff before you do anything else because you’ll have a limited time to make a claim.
Once you’re done with the bigger items, unbox the smaller boxes and check every other piece of furniture. Ensure everything has arrived and nothing was lost in transit.
Of course, you won’t be able to check if your stove is working, if you don’t have electricity. That’s why you should ensure that all needed services around your house are up and running. There’s nothing worse than moving into a home and discover the lights don’t work, for example. So take a stroll around your new place and check if everything is okay. It probably will be but if not, take care of it timely.
Once you’re done unpacking, you’ll need to get rid of that giant pile of moving boxes blocking your Bournemouth house. There are several ways to benefit from the unneeded items:
Since moving a house is such a stressful experience, it’s possible for you to let a couple of tasks slip through the cracks. Forgetting to inform the post office for the change of your address is the task that gets forgotten most often, even with a proper checklist. So make sure to take a walk to your local post office and double-check if your mail is being forwarded to the new address. Also, check if you’ve notified anyone else who needs to know you’ve moved homes in Bournemouth.
You’re almost there! The one thing left is to choose your new local professionals in Bournemouth. Once you have a doctor, a dentist and potentially a vet, you’ll be all set to experience the beauty of this town without worrying you’ve forgotten something. Certainly, you can put off the task until you need it done but you’ll feel truly liberated to know you already have the needed contacts in case emergency hits. Speaking of an urgent situation, don’t forget to create an emergency contact list!
Now that you’ve tackled all these post-house removal tasks, you can relax and experience the town of Bournemouth. To connect with your neighbourhood and make some friends, we recommend you get out for a few pints in the local pub. Have fun and don’t be a stranger!
