How long before planning to move should I look for an Apartment?

From experience 2 weeks before moving, 1 week is ok, with us even 2 days.
Reindeer Station is fast and you’ll be able to see flats you like 3 hours after calling.
3 weeks is a maximum for most places, the landlords usually aren’t letting it being reserved for longer than that.
Usually the places are gone after 3-6 weeks. And it might be rented the next morning or several hours later. 
In any case, know that you can mail us any time from 1 Month to 1 Year before you are planning to move. Reindeer Station is going to have it ready for you by the time you come to shanghai.
