More than ten percent of Americans moved in 2019, which means you should be one of the 35 million Americans moving to a new apartment in 2020. No matter how you are moving, whether by your old wagon or renting a truck or have full-service movers or a mixture of the two and more, all alternative forms will require a different amount of energy, time, and attention; and money to overcome, as well. The first biggest hurdle to prepare for your move is organizing your to-dos. This checklist gives a lift to overcome moving difficulties.
Most rental agreements require a 30-60-day warning, so check your landlord's requirements to ensure that you are given sufficient time.
Especially during peak-moving times, be sure you plan your transportation at least one to two months in advance to guarantee you get the best date and equipment you need. If you are still looking for the best offer, you should request a quote.
You can have a look at the 11 Packing Hacks for Moving blog, and it smooths the way to organize packs, bags, or bins for easy transport to your new apartment. Take also a look at local ads for used packing materials or ask for boxes at familiar local stores around. Some apartment-moving companies offer a discounted price on moving supplies. You probably need more boxes than you think.
As you check your belongings in detail, you will find bags of trash. Post the items which you want to eliminate local social network groups or, better yet, donate them. The rubbish of someone is the treasure of someone.
Report your utility providers and order to have your name taken off the account at a suitable time. Do the same for your new one and look for utility providers so that you can ensure that everything is set up on time.
This process can take up to four-five weeks, so do not wait until you should arrange an appointment at your new address.
Your refrigerator and freezer will need to be melted the day before your move but cleaning everything well ensures no unpleasant surprises for the next tenants. Check where you are parking the carrying truck and get a permit to use the elevator on moving day if required. Remember that some apartment buildings need you to sign up for a specific time slot for heavy use.
9. A chance to check if your furniture is intact.
Make sure to repair it if needed, and avoid getting charged for damages or losing your deposit and take a look at the furniture moving tips.
If you hire an apartment mover, make a list of your belongings so you have one that matches at the other end of the move. Assist around and supervise as each box is carried.
If you have pets, check that they are safe than the movers; so that you would not have to worry about them escaping.
12. Check that you leave the apartment clean and intact.
To get your deposit back, check that you leave the apartment clean and intact.
Check your new apartment and note any incompleteness and damages like dents or scratches and take photos or note them on your lease.
If it has not been done well, now is the time to clean your apartment before it is full of boxes.
Unload the moving truck, double-check to make sure all your boxes are there and nothing is damaged. If you are hiring movers, assist your apartment-moving team in bringing in your packs and put them in the appropriate rooms. This is the time to compare your inventory and belongings. Unpack the boxes for urgent needs first: bedding and towels, dishes and lamps, anything work-related, and your pet materials.
