Apartment Moving Tips

apartment moving tipsMoving from one apartment to another can be an exciting time, but it’s also certainly a hassle.  There are a lot of elements you need to keep track of when you’re orchestrating that perfect relocation, and keeping tabs on it all can seem like a full-time job when you’re in the thick of it all.  Here are some primary issues you’ll need to stay on top of.  Consider breaking these down further into a checklist so you can keep yourself organized when you’re switching apartments.

Packing Up Your Apartment: When doing this, you’ll need to take into consideration the size of your current apartment and compare it to the size of the place you’re moving into.  If the place is much smaller, or if the rooms configure differently (say, if your old place has two smaller bedrooms and your new place has one large one), you’ll need to pare down what you can bring along.  That can be a tough process, but a necessary one.

Cleaning: In order to get that security deposit back, you’ll need to put some elbow grease into cleaning your apartment.  Ideally, you’ll want to do this after you move all of your stuff into your new place, so nothing gets in between your cleaning wrath and your apartment’s dirtiness.  You’ll also want to get your new place spick-and-span.

Decorating & Restocking: If the place you’re moving to is larger, or is configured differently like we mentioned before, you’ll need to buy new furniture and decorations to make your new pad feel truly homey.  Try to get items that compliment your current furniture so everything doesn’t look cobbled together.  If you’re looking to start fresh, you could just donate everything but the essentials and build your new place from the ground up!
