After Moving: Settling In

Moving is a very exciting time for many reasons – a new house, new community, and new opportunities are all part of the moving packaged deal. There are so many aspects of a new place to explore, so we have gone ahead and listed a few possibilities to get you started. And don’t forget, Hollander Storage & Moving is here for you every step of the way, specializing in local, long distance, and international moves.


  • Experiment with item placement in your new house: try out different arrangements for furniture, knick-knacks, and art or decorations. It may take a few tries to get the right set-up, but that’s the fun of it!
  • Paint the walls: ever want to paint the bathroom a crazy color? Now is your chance.
  • Explore your new town’s community Facebook pages: this is a great way to get involved in the community, see upcoming events, and even make new friends.
  • Read in a local coffee shop: this is a great way to get a feel for your new town or city. Try out a new one each week and find your favorite.
  • Check out yelp reviews: this will give you a sense of the best local restaurants, hair salons, and gyms that you can start frequenting.
  • Go on day hikes: most places in the USA are within driving distance of a good place to walk or hike. This will help you get acquainted with the surrounding nature. If you’re up for it, make it a camping trip!
  • Research live music and events: in the COVID era, this may be harder than usual. But this too shall pass! Plus, some communities are doing socially-distant community concerts and events. See what you can find.


Wherever your next relocation takes you let it be an opportunity for you to take advantage of a new place and everything that it has to offer. Happy moving!
