Summer is the busiest moving season of the year, but it doesn’t need to be stressful if you’re prepared. If you’re planning to move into a luxury apartment at Alta Harvest Station this summer, a few simple tips will ensure your moving experience is both easy and enjoyable:
Hiring movers is often the first and most difficult choice involved in any move. It’s important to decide whether you want to hire movers as early as possible because companies can become booked quickly during the summer. Hiring movers can offer you many benefits as you transition to your new apartment home. Movers have the right equipment and transportation to move all your belongings—including large pieces of furniture—easily and quickly. There are also many different types of movers, ranging from full-service companies that will pack for you to partial-service movers who will simply transport your belongings from your old home to your new apartment. Prices vary depending upon the amount of service and the distance of your move. If you don’t own a large amount of belongings or furniture, you may prefer to move your things without the help of professionals. If you plan to rent a truck or enlist family and friends, it’s still necessary to plan ahead. Truck rentals can also be difficult to obtain during the busiest times of the summer, so call as early as possible to make sure you get the vehicle and the deal you want.
If you’ll be packing your belongings yourself, there are many tips that can make your summer move much easier. As soon as you’ve chosen your new apartment, take a walk through the space or look up the floor plan online. Visualize where you want your belongings to go and pack based on their final locations. Label each box with the room it should be placed in and keep an inventory of the items in each box in a notebook or on your computer. Keep electronics and their cords together to avoid searching for the pieces you need to hook up your computer or sound system in your new apartment. As you pack, it’s also a great time to cut back on clutter and get rid of items you no longer use. Keep bags or boxes handy for items to be recycled, donated, or thrown away. While it can be tempting to keep items solely out of sentimental value, if you haven’t used something in over a year, it’s time to evaluate whether you really need it or not.
Plan for Moving Day
If you have children or pets, planning ahead will make moving day easier. Consider having a friend or family member take care of your kids for the day to keep them out from underfoot. Alternatively, short-term daycare offers a safe, enjoyable place for children during the busiest hours of your move. Moving can also be stressful for pets; summer moves present additional concerns because pets cannot be left in a vehicle unattended. Arrange for accommodations for your pet on moving day, such as a visit with friends or a boarding facility to keep your furry friend happy and safe.
