Your Spring Move-In Guide
The Last Day

The love you show your community is important. That becomes more apparent as you prepare to move on.

By the time you have reached the last day, your head may be swimming from everything you must remember – or at least that’s how you may feel. Fortunately, the more you have accomplished during these last eight weeks, the less you’ve got to worry about today.

So, the last day should consist of the few last-minute tasks you need to complete, such as packing your suitcases and the last half of your essential items. Pack anything else you might need for the move as well, such as trash bags or gloves. These could be useful on the road and when unloading.

Lastly, if you have not informed your neighbors you are moving and they are about to have new neighbors, you should do so now. That will give them time to make room for parking if necessary and let them know they may be seeing unfamiliar faces in the neighborhood.
