Ideas Every Day #96 – New House Services

Congratulations, you’ve bought a new house, got everything approved to move into your new place and out of your old (with the help of this group) and now you’re overwhelmed by all of the hundreds of things you need to do to move.

Of course, you’ve found some great movers or have been able to convince your friends to help you move, but as time goes on you’re starting to realize just how many things you need to do to actually move and get started in your new home.  Wouldn’t it be great to have just one person or company that would manage all those things for you.

Here’s just a sample of the many things you could get just from one point of contact:

  • finding even better movers
  • getting all of the utilities for the new property turned on in your name, and ensuring the old ones are out of your name.  Heck, you even need to find out what utility companies are the options in your new area.
  • getting your cable or media services hooked up.
  • finding someone to cut your new lawn from the area.
  • getting all of the best, most highly rated casual resources for your area (pizza and other food delivery places) automatically added to your phone’s contact list.
  • finding a reputable local handyman to come fix those couple things you wanted fixed before or during your move in.
  • take care of visas if moving internationally.
  • getting your mail changed to the new address.
  • alerting all of your contact list and friends of your new address.
  • thoroughly cleaning your new house minutes after closing at settlement, before the moving truck shows up (and a lighter one after you’ve put everything away).
  • getting your air ducts cleaned minutes after settlement just for that added deep clean.
  • a pool company to test and ensure the pool is ready to go.

The list of potential services is endless and coordinating all of these things, while also trying to do the packing and take care of the people (like kids) involved in the move, is overwhelming.

What else would you include in the ways you could help ease the pain of moving and help people feel welcome in their new home and community.

Yes, and…
