Tips For a Faster Move-Out

No matter what, moving out quickly will keep the whole operation efficient and get you moved in and ready to start setting up your new place in a timely manner– and who doesn’t want to begin hanging curtains and arranging furniture as soon as possible?

Here are three tips that will make moving out go much faster:

  1. Start Packing Early

You may not think it matters how early you start packing as long as everything is ready to go by moving day, and to an extent that’s true. However, packing up early will give you ample time to go through your belongings and get rid of excess stuff you never use or don’t need.

It doesn’t make sense to move more than you have to, so taking time to downsize will speed up the whole moving process. Packing early will also help you keep things organized and stress-free.

  1. Stay Organized

A systematic packing process can greatly increase your efficiency on moving day. Organize all of your boxes by room and make sure you know what’s in each one. You can label the boxes with all of the items that are in them, number the boxes and keep a list of items separately, or even take pictures of everything that’s going into each box.

  1. Prepare Everything the Night Before

You shouldn’t have anything to do on moving day but move. That means everything from cleaning out the fridge, to repairing the holes in your walls, to packing up every last toiletry should be done the night before.

Keep some items that you’ll need that night or the next morning in a small suitcase or tote, and put everything else in its box. You should also confirm your truck rental and make sure your friends know what time to head over the next day.

How to Handle and Prevent Getting Locked Out of Your Apartment

Getting locked out of your apartment home is common and easy to do.  These tips and tricks will help you prevent and overcome the lock-out.

Keep your spare key handy!  The best way to prevent the lock-out situation would be to keep a copy of your key in your car’s glove box, under a door mat, or if you trust your neighbor, give them a copy of your key.  This way you will have your back up on hand.  You can also keep a copy in your wallet or purse.  If the leasing office in your apartment community does not issue you a spare key, talk to them and see if they have a policy on issuing a second set.

If you do get locked out, here are some ways to overcome the situation.

Assess the situation.  Before going to drastic measures, think about what is inside of your apartment home.  Is the stove or oven on?  Are there small children or pets inside?

If it is during leasing office hours, walk down or call your apartment community’s leasing office and have them let you back in.  What if no one is there or it is outside of office hours?  All apartment communities, like the Apartments On Edgehill, have a 24-hour emergency maintenance hotline that can assist with any apartment emergency situation, including a lock out.

Always remain calm if you get locked out and then use our helpful tips!
