A Checklist to Follow before You Move into Your Cayce, SC Apartment

Have you recently signed your lease for your new apartment?  Are you overwhelmed with everything you need to do before you move?  Aside from packing up the boxes of your belongings, you'll likely have a lot of tasks to accomplish before you move in our apartments in Cayce, SC.   To make it easier for you, we've compiled a checklist of items that you don't want to forget to do before you start moving those boxes into your new apartment.

Schedule Movers or Get Help

Moving boxes and furniture can be physically demanding and require a lot of manpower.  You want to be sure that you hire a reliable moving company to help you with your move.  Contact a few local moving companies to compare services and prices, and then choose the one that fits best with your needs and budget.  If you are not looking to hire moving services, you'll want to contact friends and family to ask them to help and to check on their availability.  Be sure that you have help for move-in day to help things move quickly and efficiently.  

Arrange Your Utilities

When you are preparing to move, be sure that you contact the utility companies before you leave your current address.  You'll want to communicate that you are moving so that they can transfer the services over to your new address.  By calling before you leave, you'll be able to save yourself money by not paying for two different services.  You'll also be able to avoid the headache of living without utilities.  If you make these calls before the move, the utilities will likely be set up on move-in day or soon after.

Take Work Leave

After you choose the day and time of your move, you want to be sure to communicate that with your work.  If you need time off on a weekday, you want to talk with your boss and arrange a day off.  If you can schedule it on a weekend, this would be best, but it is not always possible.  Be sure to communicate your schedule with your work to avoid any potential consequences from calling off at the last minute.

Request an Address Change

Soon after moving into your new apartment, you will want to contact the postal service to request a change in address.  This needs to happen immediately in order for you to continue receiving your mail.  This process is rather easy, and it also ensures that all of your mail that makes its way to your previous address will be forwarded to your new place.

Before you actually start packing up all your belongings, you will want to make sure these few tasks are checked off your list.  Getting all your paperwork in order before you move will help move-in day go much smoother.  If you are looking to move, contact us today to hear about our exceptional amenities and beautiful apartments in Cayce, SC.
