After all that searching and touring, you’re finally ready for the move. But before you begin packing your stuff, ensure that everything’s under control. The more tips and tricks you have up your sleeve for the move, the easier it will be. Lucky for you, we’ve listed down some of our top apartment moving tips to help you get started:

Plan Early

The last thing you want on moving day is chaos and havoc around the place. If you want to ensure everything goes correctly, you need to plan way ahead of time. Start with a moving checklist and list things based on their priority. The first thing to do is turn in your moving notice. Your landlord needs to know that your lease won’t be renewed. This will give them time to search for a new renter as well. Give in your notice 30-90 days before the move to avoid any confusion.

Pack Efficiently

As easy as it may seem to simply pack your belonging in a couple of boxes, we recommend taking out the time to organize your packing. Tackle one room at a time, and label your boxes accordingly. Let’s say you want to pack the kitchen, get boxes and make an inventory of all the items you put on each box. Then stick a copy of this list on the top flap of the box, so you know exactly what’s inside it. In case of any emergency, you won’t have to rummage and open all boxes; simply go through the inventory list and you’ll know where to find what you need.

Another thing to keep in mind is only to take what you want or need. There might be tons of things just lying around collecting dust. Do a quick de-cluttering before packing up your things to move to your new space.

Make Transporting Plans

Most people are often under the assumption that hiring movers will only double the cost of moving. However, if you book a service ahead of time, during non-peak season, you’ll get good value for your money. Moving day will be stressful, and they’ll be tons to do; this is why it’s best to leave the loading, transporting, and unloading to professionals. This way, you can focus on other important tasks during the day and ensure everything goes as planned.
