You’ve found your dream property in Cape Coral, the paperwork is signed, and you are ready to become an official Cape Coral resident! We can’t wait to welcome you to our community, but we realize that there is some work to do before you relocate. Whether you’re moving to our beautiful city from another part of Florida or another area of the country, keep these relocation tips in mind to help everything go smoothly.
It might sound like a basic tip, but staying organized will help you in countless ways throughout the relocation process. Organization reduces stress since, with a plan, you’ll know what you need to do and when you need to do it. When a new task pops up in your mind, add it to your list to ensure that nothing important is forgotten.
Even if you are not relocating for several months, it’s never too early to start preparing for your move. You might not be able to pack up your pots and pans yet since you need to cook, but you can get a start on packing by organizing your holiday decorations and other items that you don’t use every day.
Label all boxes and other items carefully, and enjoy the satisfaction of crossing each task off of your list once it’s complete. Many hands make light work, so don’t be afraid to take advantage of friends’ offers to help. Allowing your friends in on the process also allows you to spend some extra time with the people you care about while you’re packing, cleaning and loading.
Take Advantage of City Resources
You’ll probably come up with a lot of questions during your relocation, so it’s important to remember that the city of Cape Coral is here to help! The city’s official website, CapeCoral.net is packed with helpful information. Head to this website to learn how to turn your utilities on before moving day, find out when your trash gets picked up, or request a building permit for your next home improvements.
CapeCoral.net also has a host of information about the fun opportunities available to Cape Coral residents. Get your kids excited about the move by showing them pictures of some of the city’s many parks, join an adult sports recreation league, or make a golf reservation when you need a break from unpacking.
Smile and Relax
Even if you are a very careful planner, things in life don’t always go as expected. This is especially true during a big move. When you start to get overwhelmed, take a deep breath, smile, and remember all of the reasons you are moving to Cape Coral. Take a break from packing, and start dreaming about soaking up the sunshine and relaxing at the beach very soon!
