4 Tips for Moving Into a Rental Home

Here at Dunmar Moving we help all kinds of people move in different situations. There may be some people who are moving to college for the first time, those who are moving into their first home that they purchased, while others may be moving into an apartment after graduation. Whatever your situation, we can help you move. With this being said, for those who are moving into a rental, we have a few tips that you need to remember once you move in.

  1. Be sure that you complete that move-in checklist that the landlord is going to provide. This is the time that you need to analyze the condition of the apartment/home and the like. We recommend you do this before you even start to unpack, that way there is nothing that goes unnoticed.
  2. Ensure that all the utilities are working! After all, you don’t want to start unpacking for hours on end, only to find that the shower is not working.
  3. Start unpacking your items in the order that makes sense for you. Some people prefer to start with the kitchen so that they can at least cook for the next few days. Others prefer to start with the bedroom. We would recommend that you at least get your bed fixed and ready for sleeping. After all, you can order take out to eat, but it is kind of hard to sleep on the floor day in and day out.
  4. Start making this apartment into a home. We would recommend that you add in your décor for those personal touches, go to the grocery so that the fridge is fully stocked, and the like. You will find that the sooner you do this, the more likely you are going to feel at home in this new place.

Remember, if you need help with the move, Dunmar Moving is here for all your moving needs.
