Don't want to bring roaches to the new apt.

We live in a roach apartment but we're moving to a bigger better CLEANER roach free apt at the end of Septemeber. I want to do everything to ensure we won't bring the gross critters with us. Of course we will exterminate thru a pest control co. our current apartment place uses, since it'll be on their buck. Also I want to use those foggers but what else can I do to make sure they won't travel with us? I'm already going to throw out a few pieces of furniture just in case.
Tips & advice?

Also, this is my first post, Hello.

Check the moving boxes you will use (especially if they're cardboard). Throw out all dry foods (e.g., rice, pasta), although these tend to harbor bugs other than roaches :)
Wash or shake out your curtains and blankets. Shake out your toaster.

Here are some tips from another forum:
