12. Discussing Details of Moving in

1. Repeat

A: When can I move into my new house?

B: The current owners will be moving out on Tuesday, so technically you could pick up the keys and move in on Wednesday.

A: Will the utilities be turned on?

B: You need to contact the utility company and make arrangements to transfer the utilities to your name.

A: I really want to paint the walls right away and get the carpet cleaned.

B: If I were you, I would take a few days to take care of those things before you move in.

A: I was thinking that I should have my new appliances delivered as we are moving in.

B: That would be perfect. That way, someone will be there, but you will have them right away.

A: Can you help me on my move-in day?

B: I think that I have something else really important to do on that day. I just can't remember what it is.


2. Repeat


A: What would be a good day to finally move into the house?

B: You can pick up your keys on Tuesday night. When you actually move in is up to you.

A: Will the electricity and water be on, or do we need to do something to get it turned on?

B: Make sure that you transfer the utilities to your name and tell them when you will be moving in.

A: The carpet needs to be cleaned, and I want to paint the walls a different color.

B: An empty house is easier to paint and clean. Take a few days to take care of those things before you start moving your furniture in.

A: I want my appliances to be delivered as we are moving into the house.

B: I think that will work out just fine. It will help when you move your groceries in and need to keep them cold.

A: Would you be willing to help me do a few things on the day I move in?

B: My grandmother needs me to help her trim her roses that day.


3. Repeat


A: What would be the earliest that I could actually move into my new house?

B: The keys will be turned in on Tuesday night. The house will be yours at that time.

A: What should we do to make sure that we have the electricity and water turned on?

B: You can tell the utility company what day you are moving in, and they will transfer the utilities to your name.

A: There are a few things that we want to do to the place, like painting and carpet cleaning.

B: Take advantage of the house being empty to clean and paint. It will be harder to do after the furniture and appliances have arrived.

A: I asked the store to deliver my new appliances on the day we are moving in.

B: That will be good. You are going to want your stove and refrigerator right away.

A: I could use some help on moving day. What are you doing on Saturday?

B: I think I am getting a fever and will be too sick to help you. Here, feel how hot my head is!
