Things You Should Consider Before Moving into an Apartment

You've toured many different apartments in Ft Myers, FL.  You've budgeted and done your research about the city and community.  You've even signed the lease with the best apartments in town.  Now, it is time for you to prepare for your move.  Before you start the moving process, there are a few things you need to consider to make this process as smooth as possible.

Notify Your Landlord

Stay in touch with your new landlord before you move into your apartment.  This will give you the chance to ask them in questions about the apartment policies and rules.  Also, you'll want to notify them of the day you plan to move in.  This way, they will have your apartment cleaned and ready for you.  This will also give them notice to make any copies of keys or other information packets you may need upon move in.

Acquire Renters Insurance

Whenever you become a renter, you'll want to invest in renters insurance to help protect your possessions and belongings from damages and theft.  This typically won't cost very much money and it will provide you with the peace of mind that you'll need.  

Contact Utility Companies

Before you move in, you'll want to alert the local utility companies of your move in date.  They will be able to make sure that the water, electric, and heat is turned on when you are moving in.  Also, you'll need to provide them with your information so that they can access you for account notices and bills.  Ask your landlord about the utility providers in your area and then do some research on which companies you'll use before you set up your accounts.

Research Your New Area

Before you move, it is best to familiarize yourself with the area in which you will be living.  This will give you some direction and focus once you actually start living there.  You should research nearby convenience stores, grocery stores, and restaurants that you may want to visit.  Take some time to walk around the complex and familiarize yourself with the grounds and amenities offered.  This will make you more aware of your community once you actually move in.

Prepare Moving Help

Whether you choose to hire a professional moving service or ask for the help of friends and family, you'll want to arrange this in advance.  Having help on moving day will allow for a smooth and efficient process.  You also want to make sure that people are aware they will be doing heavy lifting and multiple trips.  You may even want to have some food and beverages handy for the helpers you ask.
