Make sure that you don’t miss out on the best quality professionals through last-minute call around. The last-minute always creates unnecessary stress.
You should always measure the new house & make sure that everything is going to be fit or not. Most of the time, important or key items don’t get fit in their right place i.e., washing machines and especially fridges!! Addionally, you should always know the dimensions of each room for planning.
Eat Your Pantry-

Double Check Access to the New Place-
Apartments must have to inform the building manager of your move. It simply means that they can save the parking space in front of the building.
