If you think you’ve seen a lot of moving trucks around Houston lately, you’re not alone. Houston ranks number two among cities with the largest population increases. That’s a lot of new neighbors!
Finding your “home, sweet home” in Texas can be exciting. Moving itself can be a bit of a headache. There are boxes, new schools, address changes — and of course — moving day. Tired yet?
Think of Reliant like your new next-door neighbor welcoming you to your new home. Instead of baking cookies, we put together a moving guide at www.reliant.com/mymove with everything from throwing a garage sale to getting your new utilities up and running. Here are a few helpful items from our reminder list:
• Transfer newspaper and magazine subscriptions.
• Number and label each box, and keep an inventory.
• Organize important documents in a fire-safe box.
• Clean out gym and school lockers
• If you’re a Reliant customer, call before 2 p.m. and get same day electricity service with Flexible Move-In**.
To help make your move even smoother, Reliant is teaming up with family-owned and operated 3 Men Movers in Houston. When you sign up for the Reliant Secure Advantage® 12 plan, you get a $100 credit towards your moving supplies with 3 Men Movers. You can rest easy knowing your move will be handled by a company with more than 29 years of experience.
With the Reliant plan you’ll lock in a low price for 12 months, giving you one less thing to worry about as you settle in.
Another option from Reliant is the Reliant ConnectionsSM plan. This plan lets you compare and connect phone, TV, Internet and home security services conveniently in one call.
With the Reliant plan you’ll lock in a low price for 12 months, giving you one less thing to worry about as you settle in. You’ll also have access to information and tools like automatic account alerts that put you in control of your electricity budget and help manage costs in your new home.
Being part of the Reliant family also allows you the benefit of a personal Home Energy Checkup where a Reliant Home Consultant will provide a free in-home consultation and help identify any energy inefficiencies in your new home.
Once the boxes are unpacked, start exploring your neighborhood!
Reliant has a long history dating back to the company that first brought electricity to Houston. So let us share our favorite places to shop, eat and have fun at http://houston.myreliant.com/. Even locals may find a new spot or two!
