Tips When Moving To Your First Apartment

Moving into your first apartment is one of the most exciting things you can do as a young adult. Not only are you getting a taste of true independence, but you’re also able to control the way your space looks and feels. While finding the right apartment can be a challenge, moving to your new home for the first time can be even harder. Your trusted Denver movers want to help. Here are a few things you need to think about when moving into your first apartment.

Don’t Take Everything From Home.

Unless you love everything in your childhood bedroom, there will likely be some items that you’ve either outgrown or no longer need. Rather than packing up everything and sorting through it at your new apartment, work to get rid of those items before moving day. For items from your childhood, you may want to go through them with your parents. While you may not want to keep them, they may still have some sentimental attachment to those items. Rather than cause distress for your loved ones, ask them to make the final decision. If they want to keep them, the items can stay at their house.

Get Renter’s Insurance

Before you move your first piece of furniture into the apartment, make sure to purchase a renter’s insurance policy to protect your belongings. If a fire destroys your furniture or the apartment floods due to a burst pipe, that insurance policy will help pay for replacements and help you get your life back to normal more quickly. Unlike homeowner’s insurance, renter’s insurance policies cost an average of 20 dollars a month, making the coverage affordable, even when you have other expenses to worry about.

Make Sure You Have the Necessities

While your dorm room or shared apartment may have had all the furnishings you needed to live comfortably, your new apartment may not. Before you move in, take inventory of the items that are included as part of the lease. If there’s furniture, you won’t have to bring your own. However, you will likely need to provide dishes, utensils, toiletries, and other necessities.

Hire a Moving Company

If you’re moving multiple pieces of furniture and countless small boxes, getting that entire load to fit in the back of your car can be almost impossible. If you’re moving out of state, the journey can be even more difficult. Instead of paying too much to ship box after box through the post office, hire professional movers to transport your belongings. Once your items are packed in their boxes, you’ll be able to relax while the moving team handles all of the heavy liftings and unloading for you. You’ll never have to worry about injuring your back right as you move into your new home, and you’ll even save yourself the stress of driving a large moving truck down potentially unfamiliar roads.

These guys were great. Very careful with my furniture and they were quick. Not one ding on the walls either. I highly recommend them. I will be using them again in the future.

I don't know what to say other than thanks Eden's! They helped me move twice now and both were smooth as you can expect a move to be. A broken cup or two but what do you expect, they moved my stuff across state lines and I have broken more moving myself, that is just part of the process. They were great about going over the coverage options too to ensure I was covered for any damages. Always get insurance for a move! Thanks again Eden's, I will recommend you to anyone!

The movers showed up on time, and did an amazing job dealing with some very difficult pieces of furniture. They moved things that I thought would be impossible to move. They worked hard and fast and were very careful with my walls nothing was scratched. Good work! Thanks!!

Highly recommended movers! We hired Edens movers for a local move in Lakewood CO and they did an outstanding job. The movers were professional and friendly and the entire move went smoothly without any trouble. From the start they were organized and clear and the price was more than fair. Thank you for your great job!

Best prices and great to work with. You have to wait a little bit longer for your stuff but they were very upfront about the time frame, gave us a range, and called a few days ahead of time. Our move was difficult because our stuff was in storage (we had already moved and due to another moving company dropping the ball we could not get back to finalize boxing everything up). They did a great job once they arrived organizing our stuff in storage carefully. I would highly recommend.

Save yourself the time and trouble of trying to do it yourself or hiring questionable movers - I fully recommend Eden's Moving Services to anyone who needs professional moving services! I used their long distance moving service, their storage service and their packing services and they did a great job. The teams where very professional and the entire move process was perfect.

My household has used Edens four times now with perfect results. The moved a massive Piano off the second floor – safe and quick. I hired them again with my recent long-distance move. The crew showed up on time, they were quick and careful with my stuff, and they made sure everything got placed where I'd need it.. Great experience once again. Will definitely use them again. extremely recommended.
