Water, gas and electric
No one wants to move into their new home without ensuring that the electricity, water and gas are all up and running and have been certified as safe to use. This will generally require prior planning and a known move in date to ensure that all the utilities are connected and available at the time of move in. Also remember to take readings at the old place as well as the new place before you start using any utilities.
Know where your valuables are
Either have a strong box or a specific suitcase wherein you have packed and stored all your valuables. There is nothing worse than moving home (or even the office) and then not being able to find your most important and valuable items.
Stove and fridge
Being able to store food and drinks, even if just the milk for a cup of coffee when all the work is done, is another essential. Being able to cook on the first day you move in or just make breakfast on the next day, is an effective way to cement the move and to really feel like you have arrived in a new home.
