Let The Covenant moving company handle the big stuff so you can focus on the things that are important to you. After a move, there are many things that need to be done to make you feel right at home in your new house. Here is a list of items that will help you get settled.

1) Don’t forget to fill out a change of address form with the post office.

2) Remember to start utilities in your name. Water, electric, gas, sewer, telephone, cable and internet commonly require a phone call to get started but it’s also possible to do them online.
