I'll just bring a few boxes tomorrow... my plan is to measure the whole appartment and go to Ikea for bookshelves, desk etc... I really wish we would have had the floor plan with the surface areas instead of doing that last minute but that's part of the excitement I guess
I've rented a van on Friday, and hopefully there won't be too many people on that day? It could be really messy is everyone is using the lift at the same time...
Anyway, will let you know how it goes

I'll get the key tomorrow and I'll measure the whole apartment too before to get bookshleves, etc.
However, I'll start to move my stuff on Wednesday and my plan is to complete everything by Friday afternoon bringing TV's/PC's and the dog

No, I was just confirmed last week that we can pick up the keys from 7:30. I'll go around 9

See you tomorrow probably

Best of luck to everyone moving in today. I have another 40 days to go! If anyone gets a chance, could someone do a speed test on their apartment wifi? Would love to know what speeds they are providing.

Hi guys. Are all the apartments that supposed to be ready today are actually delivered to the tenants? I am moving in at the end of March and I must inform my current landlord that I am moving. Should I do that with confidence or I will end up staying in a hotel in April....?
Best luck for everyone!

Today is the first wave of move in dates and no delays.

I would say it’s pretty likely they will meet the March move in dates.

So I got the keys this morning, it was quick and easy. Wi-Fi worked straight away (I'll try to do a speed test when I come back tonight or tomorrow). At first I was a bit disappointed because it looked smaller than I thought it would be and it's quite hard to add furniture, there is a radiator everywhere I could have put a bookshelf or a desk... So after lots of thinking and measurements, we figured something but it's not easy. I'd say it won't be a problem if you don't need to add furniture, but unfortunately I do!
It was also not as clean as I was expecting a new appartment to be and it was a big mistake not to bring my hoover, it's really dusty but not the end of the world either, it's probably that I had too high expectations?! The TV furniture is right in the corner in between the wall and the radiator, not ideal but again, we can live with it

I took pictures for you guys: https://imgur.com/a/lA4D1bB

As you can see it's super bright even with this weather and that's one of the reasons why I chose this one, not disappointment regarding the light for sure
Painting is still going on in the common areas but everyone is really nice and helpful

Interesting choice of location for that radiator in the living room beside the TV stand!?

I hope they are putting a lamp shade in that ceiling lamp in the bedroom

The balconies look massive!

I'll put a lamp shade indeed...

Overall looks pretty decent though, are you happy?

Once you start to make it “your own” I’d say they will look fab.

I think I am yes. It's weird, because our first impression was "oh it's small", "oh it's not that clean", but then you're right, we just need to make it our own. I think there was so much waiting without actually see the place that I had something else in my mind.
