We know the many decisions involved in leasing a new apartment, so we thought it might be helpful to share some tips with you that our residents always seem to appreciate.
Tips To Make Your Apartment Move Easier
Moving can be a stressful time; however, there are several things that you can do to make your move a smooth one. If you know that you’re moving ahead of time, it’s a good idea to start packing as early as possible.
Remember, Rome wasn’t built in a day and, unless you have to be out in a hurry, it’s better to take your time and remember every little detail now than to find yourself with the moving blues later. I have lots of resources to share with you form free boxes to discounts on movers.
A Little Goes A Long Way
If at all possible, pace yourself when packing. It’s better to pack a little at a time and make certain that nothing is forgotten than to hurry and try to get everything done within a day or two. It’s easy to forget to have your address changed, turn off your electric, internet, water and/or cable service, so take the time to make sure every little detail is ironed out now so that you can enjoy your new apartment later. We can provide you with a handy checklist and all the tools you’ll need to make a smart move.
Have An Apartment Moving Sale
Get rid of everything that you don’t need by having a moving sale. If you haven’t used it within a year, sell it. Otherwise, you will just end up with the same clutter in your new apartment as you’ve had in the one you’re leaving behind. Plus, the more you sell, the less you will have to pack and move.
Not to mention, you may want a few news things for your apartment and there’s nothing wrong with earning a few extra bucks whenever possible.
Moving day is hard enough; so don’t make it any worse by loading down your arms with too much weight. If you pack lightly, it may cost you a little more footwork, but your body will thank you at the end of the day.
Because of their design, boxes are easier to carry and provide an effective way to keep everything stored safely in its place. Rather than just piling everything into the car or U-Haul and hoping for the best, take the time to pack everything carefully (especially breakables) inside of a box. What will not fit, such as furniture and other household essentials, should be tied down and placed in a moving truck. Furniture pads are also a good idea to prevent damage during the move. Make sure you label each box with the contents of that box along with the room it will go in at the new apartment. This will make unpacking more efficient and save you loads of time.
