Moving is such hard work, both physically and mentally. Often times we forget the little things involved with moving. Luckily for you, we did some brainstorming and came up with a list of helpful tips to make moving into a new home that much easier!
Break down the cardboard boxes. This will make it easier to either store them or recycle them.
- Change your address. Yes, this seems like common sense, but it is often overlooked or forgotten about!
Change utilities over into your name.
Do a walk through of the unit to ensure any and all pre-existing damages are on file.
It is a good idea to familiarize yourself of emergency locations such as the hospital, police station, etc.
Keep our office phone number and emergency maintenance phone number handy.
Keep extra light bulbs & batteries around; it is your responsibility as a tenant to change lights, smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, etc. as they go out.
Do not leave garbage bags or furniture by entry ways or exits, even if temporary.
There will most likely be a few more things to remember during the moving process, but this should be enough to get you started! Good luck, have fun, and enjoy the process!!
