Getting ready to move out of a small apartment and into a larger dwelling across town may be a milestone that you have been striving toward for quite some time. Moving also involves the tedious task of cleaning your current dwelling and preparing your possessions for transport. Knocking off each step associated with a move promptly will ensure that moving day is hassle-free and uneventful.

Give Your Landlord Plenty Of Notice

If your lease is about to run out and you have paid a deposit when you first moved in, the cash can help you out with costs associated with your move. Don't just up and leave your current residence because this could cause your landlord to get upset and find a reason not to give you back your deposit.

Instead, be upfront with your landlord. Tell them that you do not wish to renew your lease because you have found a larger place to move into that will be more suitable for your needs. Set up a time for the landlord to stop by your apartment unit so that they can inspect the premises and make sure that nothing is damaged. If there are some damages, the amount that it will take to make the repairs will be subtracted from your deposit.

Reach Out To A Moving Company

Moving costs vary, depending upon the distance that items need to be transported and the amount of items that need to be packed and transported by a moving crew. Since moving crews can become booked at random times throughout the year, reach out to the owner of a moving company several weeks before you plan on moving into your new home.

Ask for a breakdown of costs so that you will be aware of how much you will need to pay to have your possessions transported and so that you can request additional services, such as packing items or moving some of your items to a storage facility for the time being. If you are keen on packing your own items, you can still obtain the packing materials from a moving company that are needed to complete the job.

Prior to packing, take the time to give your apartment unit a thorough cleaning. Your landlord will appreciate the fact that you did not leave your apartment in a state of disarray and you will not be likely to overlook some of your possessions as long as you cover every inch of your apartment with a fine-tooth comb.
