The Big Day is finally here! You are about to move into your new home. It’s time to pack up the apartment and prepare for your new life.

If you’re as most people, you may not know what to pack when moving. There are a lot of things that need to be considered when packing up the apartment, but don’t owrry we have compiled some tips that will make your like easier.

Pack breakable things first

This is one of the most important packing tips to follow. If you don’t pack up your belongings securely, they can be damaged during the move. Start by packing fragile items such as glassware and other breakables in boxes.

Save New Items For The End

We recommend packing up new items and leaving them for last to avoid potential damage. If you want to take your blankets, pillows, or sheets with you in the moving truck, wrap them first and then place them in large boxes. This will prevent any tears that could happen if they get caught on something else in your box.

Pack Towels and Washcloths in a Ziploc Bag

Put these in a bag. They won’t take up much space and you’ll have something to use when you arrive at your new place.

Use Packing Cubes

Utilize the packing cubes to keep like things together, and for easy organization.

Don't Overpack

Its better to have too few items instead of too many

Get a Move-in inspection

A move-in home inspection is a thorough assessment of the condition of a property. This can be done before or after an individual moves into a new home. A professional inspector will look at the physical condition of the property, as well as any potential hazards that may be present.
