Moving into a new apartment can be made much easier when you avoid these mistakes.

If you’re moving for the first time or haven’t moved in quite a while, you can make the process easier by avoiding a few rookie mistakes. These mistakes may make packing more difficult and make unpacking your items a much more complicated process. If you are ready to move into your new apartment but dread the moving process, make sure to avoid the following and remember our tips for a more efficient move to your new Beechtree Apartments home

Packing Up Your Home “As Is”

When moving into your new apartment, you may be tempted to pack up your current home “as is” and simply relocate everything you own to your new place. If you are very thorough in cleaning out your home on a regular basis, this may be fine. However, for many people packing up their home is when they uncover lots of items they forgot about or simply don’t need anymore. Moving into a new place is a great time to get rid of old documents, tools, clothes, or more you won’t need in your new apartment. 

Forgetting to Plan 

No matter the size of your move, planning is always helpful. You can create a to-do list that reminds you what you need to do in the weeks leading up to your move. This will ensure you remember tasks such as transferring your Internet provider, forwarding your mail, hiring movers, and arranging pet care. 

Don’t Forget About the First Night! 

When moving into your apartment, you will probably move all the boxes that day. However, you may not have everything unpacked and organized at the end of that day. But you will want to find your essentials for your first night, so it is helpful to pack a “first-night” kit that includes your basics. This kit includes your phone and laptop chargers, essential toiletries, a change of clothing, and necessary documentation. 

Forgetting About Your Pet’s Needs

You won’t forget to move into your new apartment with your pet, but you may forget about some essential care they need. Pack an “essentials” bag for pets, with food and water bowls, blankets, and waste bags. A toy or two can also be included to keep them busy.

Failing to Explore Your Moving Options

You may be making a mistake if you automatically try for a DIY move or fall for a “too good to be true” moving quote. If you are worried about the size of your move or the many factors to juggle, investing in a moving crew to help you transport your items can be worth it. However, you want to check your potential movers’ references and ensure they are licensed and reputable. 

Taking the time to plan and prepare for the challenges of moving into your apartment can make your first day in your new home much more enjoyable and exciting than before.
