3 Tips to Smooth the Move into Chandler Memory Care

Moving can be stressful.

Moving can be stressful. Trust us, we get it. The packing and unpacking, along with the stress of scheduling everything can send you into a panic. But don’t worry. We’re here to make your move a seamless experience. So we’ve compiled this list of our top tips to smooth your move into Chandler memory care.

1. Plan Ahead

We want to make things convenient and easy. So once your move-in paperwork is signed and approved, you can move into Chandler memory care the very same day.

But it’s still a good idea to plan ahead. For instance, how do you plan to relocate? Will friends and family help, or do you plan on hiring a moving company? In either case, you should plan your move in advance to make sure it works with everyone’s schedules.

If you’re doing your own packing, figure out what supplies you’ll need. For instance, decide what you’ll be bringing with you and add up how many boxes you’ll need to pack everything. Shop for supplies such as packing paper and packing tape and gather together any blankets or covers for items that need to be protected in transport. Arrange to rent a truck and dolly if necessary.

Even if you use a moving company, be sure to call well in advance of your move. The company may need to schedule a visit to your home to survey your inventory in order to give you a proper quote. You’ll want to schedule them far enough in advance that they have time to provide you with an accurate estimate. You’ll also want to give yourself time to thoroughly review the contract before signing.

2. Consider the Floor Plan

The team at Chandler memory care encourages you to bring your personal effects and furnishings to your new home. We want you to personalize your apartment so that it’s a reflection of your unique taste and style. In order to do that, though, it’s best to examine the floor plan beforehand. Keep the layout in mind when deciding what to bring with you and how to arrange your furnishings.

Each of our apartments has its own carefully designed layout. Take a look at the renderings on our website. This will give you a good idea of what the apartment is furnished with and how you may want to decorate it. You’ll also be able to look at the square footage to determine what items will fit well within the apartment. Evaluating the floor plan ahead of time will help you avoid the move-in-day stress of trying to figure out where everything should go.

3. Take a Tour

Of course, there’s nothing better than seeing your new place in-person. If you haven’t already done so, schedule a visit to Chandler memory care so that you can get a custom tour of your new home. We’re more than happy to show you around. While you’re here, you can take measurements of your new place and get a better idea of what will fit where.

Chandler memory care believes in making you feel at home, and we want to do everything possible to smooth your move here. Follow these steps to transition seamlessly into our resort-like retirement community. We’re confident you’ll love your new home.
