Moving is a big step, no matter where you’re moving to. That’s why it’s up to you to prepare for your big day by getting the supplies ready and having the order of to-dos sorted by urgency and completion time. At Blueprint (Blueground’s editorial platform for all topics relating to moving and relocating), we want our tenants to feel comfortable and excited about their move, that’s why we put together this moving checklist to explain exactly what to do to make sure a move is smooth from beginning to end. Follow these simple steps for an expedited moving and resettlement process from your first night to who to notify for a change of address. Whether it’s moving to a new apartment, city or even country, this checklist makes a relocation all the less intimidating.
Moving into an unfurnished apartment is overwhelming, but choosing a furnished unit like those provided by Blueground means you’ll have a shorter moving checklist. With a ready-to-go turnkey apartment, new residents don’t need to worry about preparing utilities, furniture and moving logistics in advance. No matter where you decide to move, use the moving checklist to get started and make sure you know exactly what to do.
If you can only pick up one useful tip from this moving checklist, let this one be it. Pack your belongings with care and with organization in mind the entire time. You should pack in a way that keeps fragile items safe, and organize your items based on where they will go in your new space.
Put together a little care package for yourself for the first night that you stay in your new place. When you first arrive at your rental you want to make sure you have the important items that will get you through the first few days. Bring along all of the following and you’ll be off to a good start.
Take these simple steps to shrink down heavy furniture and make it more manageable. That means disassembling your bed frame and other bulky items that are big enough to make moving difficult.
Take these simple steps to prepare your appliances to move to your new location without them taking any damage along the way.
Your move isn’t just about physically getting your belongings from A to B. First and foremost are all the appliances. Talk with your new landlord and find out what utilities are included with the property. Anything that isn’t included is your responsibility. Make a list of the services that need to be registered under your name. Also, change your address over to your new location just before the move.
Moving can be stressful, or it can be a relaxed step on your new and exciting journey. Follow our moving checklist to prepare for the big event and to make sure that you can proceed with confidence. Using our list you’ll know what you’re doing, and you can start preparing for the move right away.
Moving might seem overwhelming, but if you begin preparing early enough you can move with very little stress. Take care to begin the moving process as soon as you know you’re making the move and try to give yourself a month or more to do the job when you can. Whether it’s your first time moving or your fifth, it pays to start early. Use these simple steps to help you make the most of whatever time you have available, and to really improve the moving process when you have time to spare.
