Whether you’ve sold your house or are relocating for the sake of a new job or position, ensuring that the move is successful will be your top priority until it’s done. The average cost of moving interstate is $1,170 and that of moving from one state to another is $5,630. The cost can go up if you experience unexpected costs such as renting storage space.
One of the things you’ll have to plan for is what to do with your cable TV services when you move. You may want to stay with your current service provider if you are satisfied with their services. You can otherwise save about $300 in annual expenses by changing your service provider. You simply need to consider the different offers and FL packages for Comcast and other service providers before making your decision.
Ensuring the move is smooth
The following tips will help make your move worry free:
Like with every other aspect of your move, you need to plan ahead. Moving your cable TV services can take some time. Installing the services in your new home can also take time. You therefore have to plan for the coordination of the move and installation. This is especially important if you’re retaining your current cable TV services.
It is a good idea to contact your service provider and find out how much it will cost to transfer the services and how long it will take.
- Compare the cost of installation
Compare different service providers to determine whether it would be cost effective to change your service providers. Be on the lookout for special offers and packages. You may find that you save much more with having a new service provider handling the installation in your new home.
At this point it is important to also consider the long term costs of the cable services. Invest in a new service if you feel that you will save money in subscription fees as well and not only installation.
- Pack your fixtures
Be sure to take your fixtures with you whether you’re using the same service provider or not. Any fixtures you purchased for the cable installation in your old home belong to you. You can therefore save on the cost of installation in the new home by retaining these fixtures.
- Set your TVs up
Ensure that you have set your TVs in place by the time the installation company arrives. The technicians will run the cables throughout the entire suite and install the outlets as agreed. Additionally, if you have your TVs in place, they can hook these up and assist you with tuning them. You can therefore ensure that everything is working properly before the technicians leave.
With these tips, you should have a worry free move. Simply ensure that you cover all your bases, and ensure that you get the best value for your money if you choose to use a different cable TV service provider.
