If you are considering a move to Newton, MA, you may want to get some information about your neighbors first! Do they have dogs? Children? If you are unable to find out this information, you can always knock on some doors, and get the information this way. Finding some information out beforehand can help you prepare for your move into a new area.
Moving can introduce you to a new community, and you will want to establish a sense of home when you do finally get settled and unpacked (with some help from Mastodon Moving LLC) in Newton.
Meeting Your New Neighbors
Within Newton, there are many places to explore – the reservoir, local restaurants and grocery stores.
The first thing you’ll want to do is bring over something to the new neighbors! This could be a cake, or a pie. While this practice seems dated, in a mostly digital world, personal touches mean so much more. If you notice the family has been moving all day, they’ll likely want a hot meal or some takeout. If you can coordinate this with move in times, inviting the new neighbors over for a light dinner would be perfect! This will make them feel welcome, and help them to relax a little and not worry about cooking on their first night home.
Next, introduce the family (if they have children) to other families on the block. This will help them to feel more comfortable, and will help their children to get situated a little bit faster. You can lead by example, and many of your neighbors will likely follow suit if you take to welcoming the new neighborhood additions.
Then, give your neighbors the information that they will need. Give them numbers and locations of plumbers, dry cleaners, grocery stores, farmers markets or any neighborhood events that would be of use to them. Be sure to offer help with locating these places OR unpacking extra boxes. Of course, you can always recommend Mastodon Moving LLC for unpacking assistance.
Lastly, organize a block party! This is perfect for the end of the summer or fall times because the weather is a bit cooler. You can invite your neighbors to walk around the Chestnut Hill Reservoir, Crystal Lake, or even visit nearby shopping malls if you can’t coordinate a party or if the weather doesn’t cooperate.
Finding a fit in a new neighbor can be tricky, but you’ll want to provide a warm welcome for new additions, because this provides you with an opportunity for a lifelong friend!
