The 10 most important places you should locate before moving into your new home:
Gas Station. Depending on the distance between your old house and new, you might need to fill ‘er up.
Bank. You want to make sure you have enough money on hand for moving day, but if unexpected expenses pop up, knowing where your closest bank or ATM is located will come in handy.
Grocery Store. Aside from that one box of perishables we always seem to have left in the cupboard on moving day, you’re going to want fresh food and produce to fill up your fridge.
Post Office. We know, we know, almost nobody goes to the post office anymore. But eventually, someone is going to mail you a package and you’re not going to be home. You’ll want to make sure you know where to go to pick it up.
Closest Hospital. Let’s hope no emergency occurs that requires a trip to the emergency room, but if something does happen to befall you or a family member, it’s very important to know how to get to the nearest hospital emergency room.
Walk-in Clinic. For those ailments that aren’t considered an emergency, a stop in at the closest walk-in clinic will often be enough.
Pharmacy. Maybe you don’t need to visit the emergency room or a walk-in clinic, but still need some medicine for minor health issues. Your local pharmacy can help with that.
24 hours Veterinarian. Fluffy or Fido will appreciate a quick response in case of a pet emergency.
Park or Playground. The kids will want to run around and let off some steam after being told to stop getting underfoot when the movers are around, and after being cooped up in the car on the way to your new home.
Coffee Shop. After a hectic moving day, you’re definitely going to need a caffeinated pick-me-up.
