U
nless you’re carefully organized,
moving can disintegrate into a
nightmare of seemingly endless,
last-minute headaches. There’s always
something that’s forgotten in the rush
and that something can often consume a
lot of time when trying to fix from
faraway. The key to avoiding these
hassles is to make a list of the things that
have to be done and then accomplish
those tasks using a steady and
determined approach. Following is
information that may come in handy as
you prepare to move and as you settle
into your new community.
Utilities
Utilities are an important consideration in
any move. Because there are several
options for telephone service, Internet
and home-heating solutions, be sure to
consider all of the alternatives before you
make a selection. Also remember that
utility connections can take anywhere
from one week to one month to
complete from the time you place the
order. As a result, utility arrangements
should be made well in advance of your
move.
ELECTRICITY/
NATURAL GAS
We Energies
serves more than 1.1 million
electric customers in Wisconsin and
Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and more
than 1 million natural gas customers in
Wisconsin, including all of southeastern
Wisconsin. For utility connection
information, call (800) 242-9137 or click
the moving tab under “residential
services” at:
we-energies.com
.
TELEPHONE
There are many options for local
telephone service, including land-line,
wireless and cable. For most communities
in southeastern Wisconsin, the local
landline exchange carrier is
AT&T
Wisconsin
(telephone: 800-924-1000).
Some smaller telephone companies serve
the rural areas of southeastern
Wisconsin.
TDS Telecom
(Telephone:
262-539-2115) serves rural Racine
County; and
CenturyLink
(Telephone:
877-290-5458) serves Mukwonago,
North Prairie and other areas of
southwestern Waukesha County. Cable
telephone services are available in most
areas of the five-county region through
Spectrum
(formerly known as
Time-
Warner Cable
).
Transportation
Milwaukee is served by a conveniently
located international airport that offers
37 non-stop destinations, and Amtrak,
which provides train service to Chicago,
Minneapolis-St. Paul and many other
cities.
The Internmodal Station serves as a hub for rail, bus and bike transportation.
