Helping to make your life stress free, ab fab – good move.

One of the first steps you should take when moving house is to research all the services that will need setting up. You can make the process a lot easier by checking local services in advance. Write down a list and carefully go through them. Important ones to check include:

  • Electricity
  • Telephone
  • Wireless service
  • Cable and satellite television service
  • Local taxes
  • Transportation, such as buses and trains
  • Parking costs

Doing a little research can give you an accurate estimate of what the local services will really cost.

How to research local service costs

The best way to find the cost of these services is to actually visit the area. A great method is to simply ask your new neighbours what they’re actually paying. If possible, travel to your new home and check it out yourself.If you can’t make it to the area beforehand, check out the websites of the service providers and find their rates online.

Ask questions

If you know somebody that lives in the area, ask them about costs that they generally pay. They can answer specific questions from a resident’s point of view, and they may know what some of the costs are.

Doing a little research before you move will help you avoid any expensive surprises. By having an exact account of the costs for local services, you will be able to budget more accurately, not to mention being able to relax knowing that your finances are under control.
