Relocation Tips

April 16, 2018

Whether you are moving across city, state or country- don’t let the stress of packing affect the excitement of a fresh start! Being prepared and organized for the big move will make the whole process much more enjoyable. Grab your Sharpies and boxes, and follow the tips below to make relocating a breeze.

Declutter
First things first- make sure what you want to bring from your old home will work with the new space. Or, if you are looking to revamp your space-now is the perfect time to do that. Just like on the tv shows, set up three areas for ‘keep, donate, discard’. This will help you visualize what you really need with you and remember- your new building has plenty of amenities to help. Caesura has a ‘lending library’ of useful items for residents, along with a bike room (with a tool station), tenant storage, and a helpful concierge service. Once you’ve gone through everything- it’s time to start packing.

Packing and Labeling
To keep with making this process as stress-free as possible- don’t just throw things into boxes and plan on dealing with it later. Keeping things together by room, and labeling every box will help you when you have to unpack. Boxes or containers should be labeled with the room that the box needs to go to, but also the contents- kitchen/dishes/fragile, to avoid any mishaps. Make sure to pad boxes with bubble wrap or bed sheets to keep fragile belongings safe. If you are moving clothes from a closet, and don’t want to box them- use plastic bags as DIY garment bags, and keep the clothes on the hangers and protected.

Must-Haves for Moving Day
Things you don’t want to have to do on the first night in your new place- open every box trying to find your pajamas, toothbrush, phone charger, etc…While you’re packing, make a box with necessities you’ll need for the first night in your new home. That way all you have to do is get the boxes inside and head out to explore your new neighborhood.

Moving can feel like a hectic process, but following these tips will help ease the transition. Caesura is designed to be a refuge from the city- you’re sure to feel that after moving in.
