Storage Guide for Apartment Moving
Congratulations, you’ve found the perfect apartment to call home! The busy moving season is here with graduates, career movers and families making the transition into or out of apartment homes. So how do you get your stuff from point A to point B? A Plus Super Storage has your guide to get you into your next apartment with ease!
Know what you have.
Take inventory of your current belongings and assess the size and location of your new apartment. A storage unit is perfect for things you’re not quite ready to get rid of or transfer to your new place. Plus some of your items may require special storage to keep safe. Storage units come in all sizes so you pay for exactly what you need. Check out our online size estimator tool for easy decision making.
Have a plan for your vehicles
Depending on your commute, you may or may not need your automobile or motorcycle parked at your apartment complex at all times. Recreational vehicles and motorhomes might be restricted in your new parking areas, so knowing the parking guidelines in your rental agreement is key. A secured vehicle storage unit is an ideal solution to keep your vehicle safe, secure and out of the weather elements when you’re not using it.
If you have a budget for moving services, schedule those as early as possible. If you’re moving your belongings into a storage unit, we can provide you with packing supplies to get all your items ready for storage! We also have a trailer you can use for free to move all your stuff into your storage unit. We recommend Hart Moving.
Packing is one of the most important steps to an easy move into your new apartment. It’s a tedious process but you’ll thank yourself later for getting it right the first time. Here are eight steps to packing a moving box the right way that will help anyone get things settled safely.
Clean for moving in and out.
Moving day is here and you’re in the home stretch! If you’re moving from a rental into your new apartment, be sure to check your agreement for cleaning and deposit refund requirements. Giving your new place a quick clean while it’s empty and before the movers arrive will make unpacking a breeze!
Tie up the loose ends.
Think address changes, secure renters insurance, update drivers licenses and verify utilities transfer or shut off. Inform your employer of your updated address and be sure to fill out the appropriate forms with the post office so your mail follows you to your new place. Keep copies of your rental agreements in a safe place for quick and easy reference. If you’re renting with A Plus Super Storage, your agreement is month-to-month so you aren’t locked into a long-term rental.
We hope this guide helps your move into your new apartment a little bit easier and you can move through the day with confidence! Have any questions?
