The First 24 Hours

Whether you are moving across the street or across the country everyone has concerns when moving. There are quite a bit of challenges involved in moving, but it doesn’t have to be a stressful time if you plan according. Having a plan in place for the first 24 hours that you are moving into your new home are crucial at making the entire process run smoothly. Whether you are a seasoned professional or new to the moving process, here are 3 tips that are sure to help you facilitate your move-in day!

Tip #1: Make sure all your paperwork is completed with the apartment complex on time! The first thing you should do when you receive your apartment key is to complete your condition form. It is very important that you make sure to keep documentation of the condition of the apartment at move in. You might even find it resourceful to take pictures of the empty apartment prior to moving any of your items into it. If you find something not to be in working order this is the time to submit a work order to your landlord. Get items fixed as soon as possible.   

Tip #2: Clean first, unpack second. Start by dusting off counters, windows, or any built-in shelving. It is easier to clean an empty space than one filled with boxes. Do it now versus later when you have spent all your energy moving boxes and heavy furniture. It always feels better moving into a clean spot!

Tip #3: Put together your bedroom first. You have to start with one room first, so why not the one you will sleep in that night. Assemble your bed and do not forget to dress it up with pillows and linens. Make sure you know where your personal belongings are packed and make them easily accessible. After a long day of moving all you will want to do at night is lay down. Get your bedroom ready now so you can get your rest later!
