Top 3 things you need to remember to do before moving into your new home:
1. Water: find out what water company you need to contact to get the water service in your name.
2. Power: get in touch with the power company to get your power set-up in your name and turned on for your move-in day.
Hidden cost here-We had to pay about $400 (about 2 months of power) as a security deposit. This number was based on the average amount our neighbors pay per month.
3. Garbage: call the garbage company to set-up your garbage service.
Don’t forget to ask if they provide a garbage can that everyone in the neighborhood uses, or you have to buy your own. Most provide a garbage can. But, we have to buy our own in our new house.
Also, ask if they provide recycling as well. If not, find out what recycling company to call to set it up.
