Move in season has begun and we know how stressful it can be even when the sun is shining and warm. We wanted to ease the stress as much as we can, so here are some tips you can use if you’re new to renting or even a vet and want some tips.

  1. Measure Spaces – Before moving in measure your new space and doorways to see if your furniture will fit. There are many instances that a doorway may look big enough, but turned out to be a couple inches too short. Therefore it is also a good idea to makes sure that whatever you are trying to move will fit so no one is stressed.
  2. Check Utilities – Our properties don’t all have the same exact suite amenities. Some include heat and water. Others include all utilities, it’s a good rule to make sure they all work efficiently and to contact your caretaker or a third party if otherwise.
  3. Review Lease – Reviewing the details of the lease helps you, as the renter, understand what you can and can’t do in your unit. Are pets allowed, smoking, wall art, renos? Check the lease agreement or ask your caretakers.
  4. Explore Amenities – Water, heat, hydro. etc. are all important and should be considered first. You never know is your building has a gym, patio, common room and so on if you don’t explore. Take advantage of these amenities if you are someone that likes to entertain or like staying in.
  5. Security Measures – Familiarize yourself with your building’s security features. Whether it is a key, fob, app or code, it’s important to ensure you know the ins and outs. As you never know what can happen.
  6. Packing – When packing if you have clothes on the hangers keep them on there are put a trash bag over it, it will make unpacking easier and faster. For fragile items such as plates, use your clothes and fold the plates in between. This helps reduce any additional costs to protect your delicate item and the number of boxes being used.

We hope that these tips and tricks can help you make moving in much easier, quick and painless.
