New Year, New Home: A Guide for Moving Into Your New Canary Wharf Apartment

Checklist for Moving Into a New Home


There will be plenty of things to do after moving into an apartment, so we've pulled together a short checklist of all the moving essentials that you need to consider before you move into your new home to make your transition as seamless as possible.


Ensure Everything Works


With Vertus, your dedicated move-in team and on-site management can support you with any queries that you might have, from 24/7 Concierge to any maintenance repairs that you may need, our dedicated team at Vertus are always here to help.


Assess WiFi and Mobile Network Coverage


All Vertus apartments come with superfast broadband. And with Vertus Plus spaces, including a lounge in all buildings, our residents will notice little difference between the office and their homes when it comes to their WiFi connection.


Ask for the Maintenance Team’s Number


We have a dedicated maintenance team who will support with issues that may occasionally arise. We also offer handyman services which can be booked at ease all via the Vertus App. You’ll come to recognise these faces at Vertus and you’ll know exactly who to call when unexpected issues arise.



Things to Buy Moving Into a New Apartment


Our modern apartments are available furnished or unfurnished depending on your needs. Speak to our leasing team to discuss your requirements. Once you’ve started the process and getting closer to the move in date, you can shop at ease in Canary Wharf to find the finishing touches to your new home, check out all the stores and services that are in Canary Wharf before you move in to your luxury Vertus apartment.


Bedroom Essentials


You will need beds, mattress protectors, bedding, pillows, and sheets for every bed in your new apartment, as well as furniture items like dressers, nightstands, and mirrors. Fill your Vertus apartment with cosy and unique furniture and artwork so that you can sit back and relax within the comfort of your new home.

Our studio to 3-bedroom apartments to rent are designed to complement your lifestyle in Canary Wharf, complete with comfort cooling and heating, open-plan living areas and access to exclusive amenities, resident events and perks to use across the Estate.



Kitchen Essentials


The first thing to do when moving into your new Vertus apartment is to get your kitchen set up. Along with a kettle, coffee maker, coffee mugs, crockery, cutlery, and cups, we recommend furnishing your kitchen with cooking utensils, pots and pans, a colander, can opener, bakeware, cutting boards, dish towels, a set of good knives, measuring cups, mixing bowls, and oven mitts and potholders.

If you will be enjoying take-out on your first night, ensure that you have extra disposable napkins and plates on hand, as well as using the bin shoots at every level of the Vertus buildings to easily dispose of waste.

Buying a table and chairs for your kitchen space will also give you somewhere to sit and relax between sessions of unpacking.

Fancy hosting? Vertus Plus spaces are available for you to book your own events as well as hiring private chefs to treat your friends and family.

Rather dine out? Explore your neighbourhood’s dining scene.



Cleaning Essentials


Cleaning is an intrinsic part of moving and having the right equipment on hand will make this task much easier. Invest in items like a broom, dustpan, buckets, dish drying rack or dishwasher, cleaning products, garbage bags, laundry detergents and baskets, mops, and a vacuum cleaner to ensure that you’re move-in ready when the time comes.

Vertus Plus spaces are covered. Our cleaning operatives clean and tidy every shared room, surface and floor space day and night, 7 days a week. Take advantage of discounted apartment cleaning and easy pick-up and drop-off dry cleaning right from the Concierge desk.
