We are already welcoming our first residents at Crest apartments and we cannot wait for you to be our next neighbor! At Crest, we believe that when you decide to live with us, you are truly home. Now that everything has been signed, all that is left to do is to prepare to move!
Below are some things to think about as you prepare for your moving day!
The Week/Day Before the Big Move:
Check in with the Crest leasing office to ensure you’ve got the correct move-in date and time.
Crest contact number: (833) 799-1459
Be sure you’ve booked the elevator and moving dock at the building you’re moving out of so there are no delays or mishaps on moving day.
Confirm pick-up time with your movers and make sure they’ve got all the details, such as what floor you’re moving out of and into and how they can be reached the day of as well as the best directions to the loading dock– this will be very different than the address front door (especially in cities with one-way streets.) You are likely paying for movers by the hour, so you don’t want any time wasted looking for the correct location
Pro Tip: Ask the leasing office for a building map and mark the exact location for your movers.
Read the fine print on your contract with the moving company. If you have hired movers, make sure you fully understand and accept all of their policies and terms to avoid disappointment and frustration later.
Pack an overnight bag with items such as snacks, water, toothbrushes, shampoo, toilet paper, paper towels, a change of clothes, electronics chargers, and scissors to get you through the first night without having to tear through boxes in your fatigued state.
Before you unplug the TV, take a photo of the back, so you know where every wire goes when you plug it back in.
Easily pack the clothes on hangers by collecting clothes in trash bags, hangers sticking out of the top. Hang in your new closet and pull the bag off, then put it to good use, collecting move-in waste.
Take a photo or record a video walk-through of the apartment you are moving out of to ensure the return of your security deposit reflects the condition you left it in.
Make sure you’ve arranged for a caregiver for pets for the day of the move; this is for your sanity as much as it is for theirs.
The Day Of the Big Move:
Wake up bright and early and treat yourself to a well-balanced breakfast and coffee. This one may not sound fun but you’ll thank us by mid-afternoon.
Check the weather. It’s summertime, which means you want to stay hydrated and bring a change of clothes with you for after you’re done moving.
Fully charge your cell phone and make sure you’ve got all of the important phone numbers on hand for the day: movers, landlord, leasing agents, etc.
Scour the web for close-by restaurants where you can order a quick lunch and dinner without losing much time or energy during the move.
Leave a broom, paper towels, and all-purpose cleaner at your old apartment so you can do a final sweep when the last boxes are out.
Try to stay on schedule – we’re thrilled to welcome so many residents in our, but this means we all need to respect each other’s time. So please be courteous about the time slot you’ve been assigned and alert your leasing agent or move-in coordinator as soon as you know you might have fallen behind or ahead of schedule. Save your used boxes (and your tired feet) – once you’ve collected ten used and broken down boxes in your new apartment, let us know! We will gladly collect them from your apartment and recycle the boxes for you.
