How To Have A Smooth Move Into Your First Apartment Without Roommates

Tips For Moving Into Your First Place Of Your Own

Whether you’re leaving your parents’ house or moving out of a shared apartment to the first place of your own, you will have a lot of stuff. Some of those things might be hand-me-downs from family, and other items might be the things that you have accumulated over the years. Working with experienced moving companies Las Vegas Nevadamakes your move go easier, no matter how big your furniture is or how much stuff you have.

Understand the Floor Plan and Measurements

Before you plan where to put what piece of furniture, get a floor plan of your new place. If your grandma or aunt was hoping to pass down the 6 foot long dining hutch and matching 10 foot dining table and eight chairs, but you have a small dinette, it won’t fit. It is better to know how much space you’ll have ahead of time so you know what you can and cannot have the movers transport, unload and haul into the new place.

Meet and Greet Your New Neighbors

If possible meet your new neighbors. When moving into an apartment, the process could generate some noise. Saying hello to the new neighbors and telling them when you’ll be arriving allows them to expect some activity. When moving into a house, it’s also a good idea to introduce yourself to the neighbors and let them know when your moving truck will be there.

Check with the Landlord

When moving into a rental, talk with the landlord or property manager about move-in rules. There may be some requirements, such as no blocking the exits with the truck’s ramp or no blocking parking spaces for residents. You may need to reserve the freight elevator or have the movers use a specific set of stairs. The move-in hours may also be restricted so as to not disturb other residents.
