Moving into your new luxury apartment is an exciting and thrilling experience. It can also be overwhelming and emotional, particularly if you don’t plan for it properly. 

The most challenging part is the preparation of moving in and the moving day itself. You might feel overburden with what you need to do. 

Thankfully, we have the complete checklist for moving into your new luxury apartment for rent at The Metropolitan


Five Checklist Points For Moving into Your Calgary Downtown Apartment


1- Set a Date for Moving 

You can’t organize anything if you don’t have the right dates set in place. 

The Metropolitan will let you know when it’s time to move into your new apartment, so you can start planning the moving days well in advance. 

2- Hire Movers 

If you want to make your life a little easier, it’s best to consider hiring professional movers to handle your move into your new apartment. 

Consider their experience, ratings and references from previous clients and their overall service when choosing the right company for the job. The better the rating, the better the service, ensuring that all your items are safe when transported. 

From there, speak to the concierge at The Metropolitan about our policies on moving and how we can help you on this big day!

3- Organize How You Want to Live at Your New Apartment

Moving day is easier if you want what you want for each room in the house. Take advantage of detailed floor plans to plan how you want to set up your new apartment. You can also schedule a viewing before you move in so you get a firsthand visual of the apartment. 

It’s ideal if you consider the following: 

  • The best way to maximize space, free movement and room
  • Create situations where you have more exposure to natural light and brightness (so you can also reduce your energy needs and bills)
  • Extra touches that you would like to add to your luxury apartment, including a vanity, comfy chair, nightstand and lamps. 
  • Where you’ll spend the most time in your house 
  • You’ll have access to secure underground storage, meaning that any items you don’t want in your new apartment can be stored 

By planning out how you want to position your apartment, you can make it easier to organize items and furniture come moving day. 

4- Organize Your Items Before the Movers Arrive 

A simple tip: organize which items you want to move personally and which items the movers will handle. 

For example, personal, treasured items that you hold dear should be handled by yours truly. Furniture, on the other hand, should be transported by the movers. 


This is also a good time to throw away items that you don’t need or want. If you don’t like it, give it away; if you do, keep it. 

If you’re lucky enough to have a furnished apartment, this will make life easier for you when managing your items and goods. 

5- Enjoy Your Amenities 

You might think that you’re moving into a new apartment that you have to get new stuff. 

Well, that might not be the case, particularly at The Metropolitan

Your luxury apartment will have a wealth of high-class amenities that will make you settle in peace while making your moving experience more relaxed. You can experience the following: 

  • High-speed fibre optic internet 
  • Stainless steel appliances 
  • Walk-in closets 
  • In-suite washer and dryer
  • Quartz countertops 

As you can see from the above amenities, there would be no need to worry about appliances, as you’ll have anything you need before moving in!
