Moving Tips to Remember

Moving to a new apartment is an incredibly stressful time. You will likely get stress from preparing your luggage to preparing all necessary things you need to bring to your new apartment, you will greatly spend time and effort in preparing all of this. Between the apartment search, packing, physically moving your stuff to a new location and getting settled in – there’s a lot to get overwhelmed by. Hiring a team of residential movers or local movers will lessen the burden and will make the whole process less daunting. Residential movers will speed up the process of moving to your new apartment. If you are planning to move from Hawaii to U.S. mainland, make sure to hire hawaii to mainland movers as they can help you carefully pack your household goods and ship them to a port destination, or all the way to your new home.

Each week Move For Free posts our moving tip of the week on Facebook and Twitter. Here are a couple of the greatest hits for those of you getting ready to find a new apartment home over the next couple of months.

  • Make a list of your needs/wants before you begin your apartment search. This will cut down on your search time.
  • Don’t underestimate the impact of your work commute when trying to find a new apartment.
  • When searching for a new apartment, talk to some of the people who live at the different apartment communities. You’ll get a better sense of the community.

Once you find a new apartment, these ideas you may not have thought of will help you get moved and set up in no time.

  • Put plenty of paper on the bottom of boxes before you pack. This acts as cushion for your items!
  • Use your luggage when packing. That’s some valuable room for clothes and/or smaller items.
  • When moving in with roommates, agree on financial responsibilities before move-in day.
  • Keep a screwdriver and hammer handy at your new place. You’ll need them to assemble furniture.
  • Hire home and office movers that will take care of your furniture, in most cases we recommend looking for furniture removal services. 
  • When downsizing from a house to an apartment, chances are there won’t be sufficient storage for all of your stuff. In this case, you may need to rent a self storage unit.
