When you’re moving into a new apartment organization is key. The right amount or boxes, tape, packing paper, a moving truck or a van, and plenty of friends to help. You want to be sure that you pack everything, but not everything all at once. Once you get to your new place you’ll want to be sure to have these things handy to make your transition to your new home as smooth as possible.
Extension cords and batteries – Everything we work and communicate with is electronic. The last thing you wan to have happen is your cell phone batter to run low, or worse die, when you’re trying to maneuver around your new surroundings.
Tools – You’ll need a couple of screwdrivers, hammers, nails and screws, and maybe a tape measure. You’ll want your new apartment to feel like home right? Having the right tools handy to be able to put your bed and some other essentials together will help you get there quicker.
A bottle opener and glasses – You might feel like opening a bottle of champagne to celebrate your new start, be sure you have the right tools to open it with, and a glass would be nice.
Food – Have you scouted out your new area to find out who has the best pizza or chinese takeout? Moving makes you hungry, you want to be sure to keep your energy up, and if you have a crew helping you move, they’ll appreciate the gesture.
Cell phone – You’ll probably want to call to let friends and family know you arrived safely at your new place, plus you need to order that pizza!
Cash – While most of us don’t carry cash much anymore, it’s never a bad idea to carry at least a little cash on you just in case of emergency.
A copy of your lease and ID – You’ll wan to have this ready for your new apartment complex if the sales associate you’ve been working with isn’t there on the day you move just to make the process easier for you and your new community.
Cleaning materials – Every apartment is cleaned before move in, but you might want to give it your own personal cleaning touch.
Light bulbs, a small lamp, maybe a flashlight – You’ll want to call your Power and Light company before you move in to make sure your electricity is set up to be on once you arrive. A few extra lightbulbs can’t hurt to have just in case one went out before you moved in.
Alarm clock – If you’re relocating for a job, you don’t want to be late for your first day!
Box cutter or scissors – Odds are if you’re moving and you have a lot of stuff to move you’ve packed things pretty securely, you’ll want to start making your apartment feel like YOUR apartment. The sooner you’re able to get to your things, the sooner it feels like home.
Of course there are other things that you might need, these are just a few of our suggestions.
