There is and will always be a considerable amount of excitement associated with a move. You'll be moving to a new place willed with new opportunities and other loads of potentially good things. But in the whole excitement of the move and all things related, like planning packing, coordinating with the movers etcetera, sometimes we forget a few crucial things that if left unnoticed, will give us headaches even in our new home.
One is unpaid bills. Try to pay off all your bills and utilities before you move out. The same goes with any outstanding balances you have for credit cards or even rent. Make sure that everything is smoothened out unless you want you new home to be haunted by ghosts of your past. Also, unpaid bills, especially credit card fees, will accumulate interest as time passes, so it is best to settle everything as early as possible so you can truly start afresh in your new home.
Have your car or cars thoroughly checked out before the move. Especially if you are going to be driving for long distances, it is best that your vehicles or vehicles are in prime condition for such a trip. You can visit the local auto repair shop for a check-up on things like your brakes, transmission fluids, suspension, and etcetera.
