Tips for Moving to an Apartment

Whether you’re moving into your first apartment or your fifth, you may be worried about the moving process. A little advance preparation and organization can go a long way toward making your next moving day a smooth one. Check out the tips below to discover how you can reduce stress and disorganization and make moving into your luxury apartment an experience you might just enjoy!

Create a Checklist

It can be easy to feel overwhelmed or worry that you might forget to address something during your move. One of the best ways to keep your thoughts organized and limit stress is to create a moving checklist. Separate checklist items by category, such as questions you’d like to ask about your new apartment, services you’ll need to schedule (e.g., renting a moving truck or turning on utilities), items you want to bring with you, and necessities you plan to purchase after your move.

Purchase Renter’s Insurance

Even if you don’t own a home, insuring your personal property against disaster is important. If you currently have renter’s insurance, let your insurance company know the details of your move as soon as you have them. This will ensure a seamless transition between your old apartment and your new one. If you don’t currently carry renter’s insurance, it’s time to go shopping—check online or make some phone calls to find the best policy for your needs. Oftentimes your rate will depend upon your apartment’s safety features, so make sure to take note of these factors before finalizing your agreement to ensure you get the best deal.

Organize Your Packing

Spread out the packing process over time to reduce stress. Begin by packing the items you use least frequently, including seasonal equipment and holiday decorations. Label each box with a number and keep a master list of box numbers and contents for easy unpacking once you’ve reached your new apartment. Taking your time with your packing will ensure you don’t feel stressed or overwhelmed by your move, and give you the leisure to pack every item safely and securely. When you begin packing the items you use on a regular basis, make sure to put necessities into a “priority box” that will be opened first in your new home. These necessities should include bedding, toiletries, medication, small appliances and chargers, a few sets of clothing, cleaning supplies, and any pet supplies you may need.

Downsize Your Belongings

Moving into an apartment is a great time to downsize your belongings. As you pack, set aside items you no longer use. Throw away clothing and items that are worn beyond their useful lifetime, and consider donating other items that are in good shape to a local charity or thrift shop. Reducing the amount of clutter in your current home will not only make packing and moving easier, it will also provide you with a blank slate in your new apartment so you’ll have room to create a new personalized space.

Tips for Moving to an Apartment

Moving to a new apartment is an exciting experience. Whether you are a first-time or experienced renter, following a few guidelines can make the transition to your new luxury living space an easy and enjoyable one. Keep reading for a few tips that will make your moving day a less stressful event, and get ready to enjoy apartment living at its finest in San Francisco when you lease an apartment at Carmel Rincon on Howard Street.

Consider Your Technology

In today’s fast-paced, technological world, finding an apartment that suits your technological needs is a must. When touring any potential apartment or site, check that your cell phone has adequate signal. If you consider high-speed internet or HDTV options important, ask your leasing manager whether these features are available in your apartment. If you are unfamiliar with the area, also ask about the service providers that serve the area where your apartment is located. It’s helpful to know whether you will have only one choice for service or if you can shop around to find the best internet, cable, or telephone service package for your needs.

Measure the Space

Before you move, visit your future apartment to take as many measurements as possible. This step is important regardless of whether you plan to bring your own furniture or if you’d like to purchase new items once you move in. If you’ll be transferring your own furnishings, it’s essential to make sure they will fit through doorways and around corners to prevent hold-ups or the need to discard items that can’t be brought inside on moving day. When purchasing new items, ask how they will be delivered to ensure you know the dimensions of every piece. Don’t just measure the room where your items will be placed—measure hallways, staircases, and doorframes as well to ensure they can accommodate your needs.

Pack Necessities Last

One of the most common causes of moving stress is the inability to find essential items immediately after a move. With so many boxes yet to be unpacked, it can be easy to temporarily lose chargers, extension cords, tools, and even clothing or towels. Create a list of necessities and save these items to pack last in a specially-labeled “Priority Box.” These necessities should include a few sets of clothing, a set of sheets and towels, your computer and cell phone charger, any tools you may need to assemble furniture, medication and pet supplies if necessary, and scissors or a box cutter. Bring your Priority Box with you in your personal vehicle rather than leaving it to the movers so you’ll have all of these items immediately on hand when you need them.
