Current situation: I'm under company housing that paid my guarantor, management fee, etc. I've resigned and I've asked if I can keep my current apartment. I was prepared to pay at least one month's rent, and maybe key money. I was looking at about 200k in my head. That wasn't so bad.
Since I am no longer supported by my company, I now have to pay key money, service charge, guarantor, and it became a whopping 300,000.
Edit: this is in the Mejiro area
I thought to myself "Huh. It's almost cheaper to move"
Am I being too optimistic though? In all my moving I had nothing but boxes of clothes and household items, and that was a few thousands since I did it by mail.
My friend said she got her moving to 50k, but that was after haggling and she didn't have large items like a washing machine.
I was hoping to get a quote from anyone whose had to move more than just furniture, as most of my friends came out from dorms or furnished places.
More edit: I live in 21sqm apartment, with large items like a bed, refrigerator, tv, table, chairs, lights, xbox, kitchen items. This is around the Mejiro area
I plan to move out to a 25-27sqm apartment, near Otsuka, with a rent max 110k a month.
