Getting Ready to Move In


Before you get to the closing table, you will want to make sure you have arranged for all the utilities to be turned on in your name. The utility providers in this area are listed below along with the phone numbers for their customer service departments. Give each a few days to make sure the service transfer is completed on time. There’s nothing worse than arriving at your new home on moving day, only to find there is no electricity or water.
