To start becoming acclimated to your new community, refer- ence the Palm Beach Relocation Guide and other community resources for all the fun things to do and places to go! Most moving companies advise, that to prevent possible damage, televisions, stereos, computers, other electronic equipment and major appliances should not be used for 24 hours after delivery, allowing them time to adjust to room temperature. Make sure you have payment on hand for your moving charges. Unless other billing arrangements were made in advance (like with a new company if you're relocating in a corporate move), most moving compa- nies require payment upon delivery in cash, traveler's checks, money order or cashier's check. Personal checks are usually not accepted. LICENSE & REGISTRATION, PLEASE Moving, be it across town or to another state, is a detail-oriented process that is further complicated by the fact that some laws and regulations are, more often than not, different in a resident's new home than one's old home. This fact is particularly true when it comes to getting a new driver's license, vehicle registration and vehicle titling. Never fear–we've provided some basic information to help you get going in the Palm Beach County area. SETTING UP UTILITIES Call a couple of weeks ahead to have utilities connected at your new home the day before or the day of your scheduled move-in (resources for phone, Internet, cable, gas, electric and other utilities are listed below.) Check to make sure the utilities have been connected, and follow up on any delays. Make sure your phone is connected, if you have a land line. Ideally, you should have the phone company hook it up the day before you move in.
