In the last decade, I have moved my family once per year. That’s ten moves in just ten years. And yes, it was just as painful as it sounds. Promotions in the civilian world and joining the Army will do that to a family.
I chalk it up to the fact that we just weren’t sure where we wanted to raise our kids! In fact, I think we’ve been in the home we are currently in longer than we’ve been in any home in the past! What a great feeling, you know?!
I’m thinking that we’ll stick around for a while this time.
There is one bonus to moving, and it’s the amount of junk you either give away or sell because you don’t want to have to haul it to your new location. It’s amazing how much crap you can accrue over time, and moving helps you realize how much of that crap you don’t really need any more. If you need help with this shore, consider hiring an trusted services like the removal companies dublin to lend you a hand.
Anyway, on with my point. When moving to a new place, there are a few things that need to be taken care of before you can actually call a place home. For us men, the cable has to be turned on, first and foremost. Heck, if you’re like me, I think about setting up the cable before the electricity, even though a computer and big screen TV would be kind of worthless without power. I know, my priorities are a little out of whack….or are they? So before moving, make sure to check if the cable systems are in place. If not, you should contact a Cable TV Supplier.
Finding these utility companies can sometimes be a hassle, especially if you’re moving to a completely unfamiliar area. Sure, you can ask your neighbors and look in the yellow pages when you get there, but why not make things easier on yourself?
Hire a Concierge Company
Have a concierge service hook you up! Until today, I didn’t even know these sort of companies existed. Instead of showing up to your new home, dark and cold, have the concierge service set up before you arrive. They’ll setup and recommend the best services for your area in tv and internet providers, cell phone service, electric and gas providers, water companies and even solar companies. To learn more about what these sorts of concierge companies offer, you can read more here.
All I know is that I wish I would have known about and taken advantage of a concierge to setup the homes I’ve moved into in the past ten moves. Because when moving, that’s just one less thing to worry about.
So tell me, have you ever used a concierge to help setup your home before? I’d like to hear about it.
And also, until someone can beat my record of ten moves in the last ten years, I’ve crowned myself the reigning champion of moves. If you have more than ten, leave a comment to dethrone me!
