Moving to a new neighbourhood may seem daunting and exciting. It is a big financial and emotional decision, and you must make all careful considerations before shifting. You will have to handle the transportation of your goods and do a lot of paperwork. But, planning can help you ease through the process.
Here are some quick tips from Subha Builders to remember:
Assess the neighbourhood
Before you decide to relocate, assess the neighbour. Ensure you have basic amenities available in the vicinity, such as department stores, schools, parks, pharmacies, hospitals etc. Assess the cleanliness in the neighbourhood, and research the crime rates in the area. Understand if the area is safe for you and your family at all times of the day or night.
Collate your documents
After deciding on the new place, it’s time to get packing! Begin by collating all your government documents, including bank details, ration card, voter’s ID, Aadhar card etc. These documents will require you to make an address change to ensure you get the appropriate services and benefits at all times. You will also need to change your address at the post office to ensure all old subscriptions get forwarded to your new address.
If you are shifting into a new or even an old apartment, ensure to get it deep cleaned. It makes the place look fresh and helps avoid unnecessary pests. Deep cleaning areas such as the kitchen and bathroom help get rid of old stains.
Plan packing and unpacking
Get professional help to help you move to your new home. Moving into a new plan may be stressful for a few days, so plan every step. Unpack items based on priority such as kitchen, bedroom, kids room, dining etc. Planning will help you pack and unpack more efficiently and settle down easily in your new neighbourhood. While creating a plan, keep in mind the days your new furniture or other deliveries may arrive.
Once you relocate, ensure you familiarise yourself with neighbours and become a part of the community. It helps you make new friends and eases your stay in the new neighbourhood.
