Getting ready to move into your new Dubai apartment in JBR? While you may be excited about this change, it can also be a bit overwhelming to take on everything you need to do to get settled in such an unfamiliar place. While moving to JBR we highly recommend Movers and Packers in JBR when moving in JBR. With that in mind, here’s our ultimate guide to moving into JBR and getting ready for the next phase of your life.
Before You Move
Get a map of Dubai Marina, then visit and explore each building. Be sure to note which buildings have: • A gym on site • Valet parking available • Play areas for children (pools, parks) • Car showroom and/or garage • Concierge service. Think about what you like about each building before finalizing your decision. Also take a good look at anything less desirable (for example, does it feel very dark?) so that you can decide whether or not it’s worth paying extra to live there. Make sure that access to public transport is convenient – not just cars because living in a car-free area will save you money and effort every day.
If you need to move during Ramadan, plan ahead and schedule your move after Ramadan ends. This way, everyone will be less stressed out and more willing to help you out with moving. The last thing you want is an angry neighbor who feels inconvenienced by having to help out with moving! Pack early – preferably 2 weeks prior – when everything is still fresh in your mind. Pack everything that might be useful in the future but doesn’t pack sentimental items such as photos or gifts unless they are really valuable.
When moving overseas try to choose a moving company in Dubai with experience shipping abroad; they know how best to package fragile items and how best to avoid customs problems etc… If possible use two movers instead of one mover + helper; if one person gets tired then another can take over! It also means you’ll get twice as much done in half the time.
You never know when someone might call or text and if you miss their call or message, that could cause issues later down the line. Don’t forget to cancel all your automatic payments such as utility bills so that no money is wasted while you’re away from home Finally, make sure all doors are locked and windows closed before leaving home.
When You Arrive
First things first, take a deep breath. It’s OK to be overwhelmed—Jumeirah Beach Residence is definitely a unique community in terms of both what you can expect and what you’ll need to do in order to function there. Thankfully, we’ve put together an essential list of first-time resident tasks that will help ensure your transition into JBR runs smoothly and uneventfully. So breathe deep, keep calm and read on! Do I Need Anything Else? Once you’re fully moved in, don’t forget to stop by Rera for any additional paperwork you might need (like electricity contracts or opening bank accounts). And if you’re not sure where to start with all these papers, our concierge service can assist with filing and other administrative matters while also helping point out important dates.
Before you leave
It’s a good idea to do a walk-through of your new home with your landlord, or agent. It’s also worth getting a list of approved contractors from your landlord so that you have someone to call when big projects come up. Although that isn’t always feasible if you don’t have access to their records. In some cases, it may be easier and more cost-effective to do these things yourself.
Also, get an emergency contact number for your building management office before moving day. In case something does go wrong with electrical wiring or plumbing during installation. It’s a lot faster than calling directory assistance. You’ll also want to change all of your address information at utility companies and banks. And remember: If you’re moving into a furnished apartment, expect there to be gaps in furniture inventory.
You should ask for specifics on what will be available when you move in. But don’t assume everything is included just because there are empty spaces on your floor plan layout. (A few things like bed frames might not show up until later.) Be prepared by having essentials like dishes, pots, pans, and cleaning supplies ready ahead of time. Don’t forget that you’ll need toiletries too.
