Moving into a New Apartment
Congratulations on the move! Moving into a new apartment in Connecticut is exciting. But it can also be overwhelming. There is a lot to get done before you move and settle into your new home. All My Sons Connecticut Moving and Storage wants you to be prepared with their best tips for moving into a new apartment.
Tour the Apartment
Everyone dreams of moving into a brand-new apartment. To be the first person living in the unit is very lucky. However, make sure that it’s not too good to be true. You should always tour the apartment beforehand. It may look perfect on the outside, but there are things you could miss if you don’t visit in person. If you can, check the noise level both in the morning and at night.
Call the Landlord
Make sure that you can call the landlord and ask questions before you move. You need to be sure that the landlord is on top of their responsibilities. Landlord problems can make or break your living situation. With a new apartment, there could be things not fully thought out. For example, window leaks and fixes are notoriously bad for new apartment complexes. Confirm that any maintenance or administrative problems are going to be taken care of.
Organize Your Belongings
Before moving day, be sure to sort through your belongings. If you’re moving into a new apartment because you want to downsize, then you will have to sell and donate some items. All My Sons recommends organizing everything into two piles: keep and discard. You can use the two-year rule if you’re having a hard time deciding what you should get rid of. If you haven’t used an item in two years, then you probably don’t use or need it.
Hire a Moving Company
If you know you will need help, start looking for a moving company. Hiring professional movers can take time so be sure to do this in advance. Requesting and comparing moving quotes is time-consuming, but worth the cost savings. Once you find the right movers, you can rest easy knowing they will deliver a stress-free move.
Take advantage of packing services; professional packers are a lifesaver. They can pack all of your belongings in a day. If you are worried about time, consider adding packing onto your list of services. The packers will bring boxes, tape, and labels. You don’t have to worry about packing supplies or outrageously heavy boxes. This can be especially difficult when moving into an apartment.
