Moving out for the first time can be challenging, especially for first-timers who are essentially packing their entire lives into several boxes to start the next chapter of their lives. For those moving to a co-living space or a smaller apartment, the limited room makes it difficult to bring along everything you have in your previous home. Moreover, you’ll want to start your new life in a space that is as tidy and neat as possible — a representation of a fresh start. If you’re moving out for the first time, here’s a simple guide on what to bring with you.
Most of us use a wide range of electronic devices, from smartphones to tablets, to laptops, and needless to say, they all require charging; many of us can recall the panic that ensues whenever we forget our chargers. Also, consider getting a longer charger cable just in case the power socket is a little further away from your bed or workstation. Either way, definitely don’t forget your chargers when moving to your long-term serviced apartment in Singapore.
Moving is tedious and dirty work, and after the end of an arduous day, the last thing you need is to not be able to take a nice, warm shower to freshen up and soothe your tired bones. This is why you should bring your toiletries with you — soap, shampoo, toothbrush, face tower; everything you need to wash off the stains of a day’s work moving into your co-living space.
Basic Cleaning Supplies
No matter how clean your serviced apartment rental in Singapore appears to be, you’ll want to give it a once over for your own peace of mind. Moreover, dirt will probably be strewn around once you’re done packing, so don’t forget your wet wipes, cleaners, dish soap, rags, a broom and dustpan, and even disposable gloves. If that seems too much of a hassle, you’ll also be pleased to know that many of Coliwoo’s properties offer housekeeping services to make your life easier.
Medication and Supplements
When you’re living alone in your long-term serviced apartment in Singapore, you no longer have your parents around to take care of you when you’re unwell; instead, you alone are responsible for your own health. Pack essential medication like Panadol for common ailments, and carbon pills for stomach issues. If you’re already taking supplements, don’t forget to bring them with you as your diet might not be the best when you’re too busy packing and unpacking to prepare proper meals for yourself.
Scissors and box cutters
With the number of boxes and packages you’ll be receiving in the initial stages of moving into your serviced apartment rental in Singapore, bringing along a sturdy pair of scissors and a box cutter is absolutely essential if you want your unpacking process to be a smooth one. If you’re anticipating letters, don’t forget your letter opener too.
Not every electronic device is chargeable. Remote controls, for instance, are not. If you have remote controls for your television, air conditioner, lights, and so on, you’ll probably need extra batteries, so do bring them along. Some miscellaneous electronics like erasable boards also require button batteries instead of conventional batteries, so do familiarise yourself with the types of batteries you’ll need in your long-term serviced apartment in Singapore.
Most importantly, don’t forget your identification documents when you move into your co-living space. Items like your NRIC, driver’s licence, passport, lease documents, are usually required to complete the moving-in process, and if you’re flying in from another country, going back to retrieve those items won’t be feasible.
