How to Settle Into Your New Home Quickly

You’ve got everything moved out of your old home and into your new one. The moving company has unloaded the final box, and now you’re faced with the daunting task of getting settled into your new home. While moving into any new house can be stressful, there are a few things you can do to make the transition as easy and seamless as possible.

Unpack Room By Room

When you’re unpacking everything you own at once, it’s easy for belongings to get disorganized, lost, or even damaged. Instead of tackling every box as you find them, try to unpack room by room. This will help you stay organized and reduces the likelihood of items getting lost in piles of clutter or boxes. Best of all, by focusing on a single room, you’ll be able to finish unpacking more quickly as you’ll spend less time moving items to different areas of the house.

Update Your Mailing Address

Ideally, you should have updated your mailing address at least a few weeks before moving from your old house. However, it’s important to take care of it as soon as possible if you put it off. The last thing you want is to have important bills, paychecks, or sensitive documents sent to the wrong address. File a change of address with the USPS and double-check the address on file with your employer, utility provider, and bank. Update anything that needs changing immediately.

Take the Pets For a Walk

Both dogs and cats can be on edge when settling into a new house. The unfamiliar territory has new scents, sounds, and terrain that they need to recognize as their own. By taking your pets out for a walk around the neighborhood, you’ll help familiarize them with the new territory. Once the area becomes familiar, they’ll begin to settle down and feel like the new house is theirs.

Introduce Yourself to the Neighbors

Your neighbors can be a great resource when you’re new to the neighborhood. Please introduce yourself to them when you have a chance and try to get to know them a little. Remember, neighbors can help keep an eye on your house when you’re away, recommend great restaurants in the area, and may even become close friends if you give them a chance. You won’t know unless you introduce yourself!

Let The Kids Help

When you’re moving within the same city, most kids find transitioning into the new house relatively simple. All that’s changed for them is their room—their friends, school, and extracurricular activities stay the same. However, they’re more likely to get settled into their new space if they get to help you unpack and set up. Best of all, it keeps them occupied and can actually make unpacking faster.

Spare yourself the stress of unloading heavy furniture from a moving truck on your own. Contact Eden’s Moving Services and let our licensed and insured movers take care of the heavy lifting for you.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Eden's Moving was one of the best moving experiences I've ever had with a moving company, the movers were timely, professional, hard working, considerate, and knowledgeable. Dawn the scheduler and front office personnel was outstanding with her professionalism and communication. I highly recommend Eden's Moving to anyone seeking movers they will not let you down!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
