If you've decided to move into a new apartment complex, remember, planning is key. Be sure to check out the development fully including surrounding areas. Once you have selected the right development for you and your family, then you should start planning the actual move.
Devise a detailed checklist and create a calendar to help your move go easily once you reach your designated moving day. Helping Hands recommends making a specific moving calendar that includes important dates, such as when to start and finalize your packing, as well as when to sign your lease and set up utility services for your new home.
We always recommend packing a "necessity" box which will include a few pots and pants, toilet paper and necessities. This is just in case your unpacking takes a few more days than you planned. Other helpful items to pack in the kit include a shower curtain and rings, paper towels, kitchen and bath towels, drinking water and a change of clothes.
Be sure that you get into your new apartment before the move for inspection. If it isn't cleaned to your standards, we recommend bringing a vacuum cleaner and other cleaning supplies to help before you move in your furniture and other items.
Helping Hands Apartment Tip: Be sure to reserve the elevator if you need to.
This is key - many people forget to do so and their move is postponed or more difficult than necessary.
