If you discover any damage to your household goods call your moving company. Request they come to your house to inspect the damage. Moving Companies reserve the right to repair rather than replace damaged property and may choose to do so.
For an additional fee, moving companies will unpack for you and remove all packing materials.
Take time to familiarize yourself with your new surroundings. Tour the neighborhood to get a feel for the area.
Check the location of your fuse box and water main valve as you become familiar with your new residence.
If you are moving into an apartment complex become familiar with your building manager or superintendent.
