What You Should Take With You When You Move Out Of Your Home

Moving out to your own place for the first time can be a daunting experience, especially for first-timers who have to pack their entire lives into boxes to begin their new journey. For those moving to a smaller apartment or a serviced apartment, the smaller space might pose difficulty in bringing everything you have from your previous home.

Fortunately, ST Residences’ vast options of serviced apartments are entirely furnished with everything you need to move-in straightaway. Hence, you will be able to start afresh in an entirely new environment seamlessly without having to bring many items over – a representation of new beginnings. If you are moving out for the first time, we have compiled an efficient guide on what you ought to take with you.

1. Chargers

The great thing about staying with ST Residences is that you do not have to worry about utilities. Everything is ready and set up properly for you. All you need to do is move in and live comfortably. All of us own several portable electronic devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and laptops. Needless to say, they need to be recharged at the end of the day. Hence, even if you forget the other items on this list, chargers are something you might not want to forget to bring, especially if they are those really good ones with fast charging capabilities.

2. Toiletries

While ST Residences provides some of the basic essentials, you might want to bring over some of your preferred favourites. Moving day can be anxious and tedious work, and after completing your move, the last thing you want is not to be able to enjoy a refreshing shower to soothe your tired body and freshen up.

3. Basic cleaning supplies

At ST Residences, we take pride in offering our guests a comfortable and fuss-free stay. You do not have to worry about major cleaning as we offer a weekly housekeeping service that ensures you have a clean home every week. However, that does not mean that you cannot play your own part in maintaining the daily cleanliness of your home. As such, you might want to have basic cleaning routine to help maintain your home in between the weekly housekeeping.

4. Supplements and medications

Whether you are moving out of your family home or moving to Singapore for work or study, the thing about living alone is that you are away from the comforts of your home. Hence, being responsible for everything, especially your health, is vital. You can do so by packing essential medications, such as painkillers, digestive and carbon pills. If you have personal medications and supplements that you have been taking, bring those with you too.

5. Spare batteries and other miscellaneous items like your identification documents

Not every electronic device you have in your serviced apartment will be rechargeable. For instance, remote controls are not. Hence, you will want to bring some extra batteries of various sizes along with you. The most common sizes are AA, AAA, and coin-shaped ones. Even if you do forget, fret not, as ST Residences are never too far away from conveniences where you can pick them up when needed.

Lastly, how can we forget our identification documents, such as our driver’s license, NRIC, lease documents, and passports? Those are items that you should have with you at all times.


Moving to a new place can be a tiring process. And that is why we highly recommend you consider serviced apartments, especially ST Residences’ if you are looking for convenience, affordability, and flexibility.
