Moving is exciting, but it can also be disorienting if you don't quickly get established in your new home. Getting settled at Springs at Estero or Springs at Six Mile Cypress is a cinch when you create a workable plan ahead of time, research your new home, get settled efficiently, and take advantage of the resources around your new home.
1. Create a Workable Plan
You don't have to plan out every last detail of your move, but if you create an action plan with clearly outlined steps to take, you're much less likely to feel disorganized and overwhelmed. Be sure to include the following items in your plan:
Reserve your moving truck or moving company at least six weeks ahead of time
Line up help for loading and unloading the truck
Notify utility companies of your move
Collect moving supplies and other resources like boxes, tape and dollies
Pack a little at a time, starting with items you rarely use
Change your address with credit card companies, insurance companies, etc.
2. Research Your New Home
You'll be able to get settled much more quickly with a little research under your belt.
Ask for referrals for doctors, hair stylists or barbers, vets, mechanics, and any other service providers you need regularly
Locate the nearest grocery stores, gas stations, restaurants, schools, churches, parks, and other places you frequent
