Check Home and Apartment Regulations
Moving-in and moving-out regulations vary between apartments and houses. If you live in a house, there is usually no “wrong time” to move out, unless you live in a neighborhood or community which has late night or early morning time restrictions in place.
If you are moving into or moving out of an apartment, there is a good chance there may be certain restraints. The building may have a guideline that states you may not move out on the weekends or you may not move outside the hours of 9AM-5PM, for example.
Find out whether or not this is the case for your building to avoid violating any rules at both your origin and destination locations and be sure to let us know so we can play accordingly.
The last thing you need on moving day is to irritate your neighbors before getting the chance to know them.
What to Do Before Moving
Landlord tenants have the right to set regulations and responsibilities of their current and vacating tenants, so it’s a good idea to give your landlord a call to clarify their specific policies for vacating your home. There should be some information in your original lease document as well, so be sure to have that on hand for a proper review.
When scheduling your move with professional movers like Moishe’s moving services, be sure to express these needs so that we can properly accommodate your reservation. One of our responsibilities is to make sure that we do not disturb the neighborhoods we serve. Therefore, we’ll do everything in our power to make sure you move is following proper regulations and local ordinances. Moishe’s moving is heavily experienced to make every step of your move as seamless as possible.
Try to be as courteous as possible when planning your move. Even if it isn’t expressed explicitly in your moving agreement or lease, you’ll want to make sure you schedule your move at a time where you won’t bother your neighbors. For example, it’s probably not a good idea to move during the night time or early weekend hours when others may be sleeping.
What to Do After Moving
Once you’ve successfully moved out of your old apartment or property, make sure you inquire with your past landlord about getting back your security deposit. This money can help you pay the new security deposit on your new property. If you have to go through an early lease termination, you may not be eligible to receive this money back.
The more notice you have, the better. Make sure you reach out to your existing and new landlord as soon as possible to prepare your move properly. Landlords can be pretty busy managing multiple properties, so it’s imperative that you submit your requests as soon as you’re able to.
