Plan Your Move to Atlanta Apartments Early

Moving can be a nightmare, but much can be done by apartment dwellers to ease the transition from one community of Atlanta apartments to another. With the right amount of planning and preparation Atlanta residents can relocate without feeling overwhelmed. Before you pack the first box, check out these moving tips from Atlanta Apartments for Rent Blog.

Begin two months before the day of your move. Take inventory of all your stuff so you know what size moving truck to rent or so you get the most accurate estimate from the moving company. Shop around for local Atlanta movers or rental trucks to save more money before moving into affordable Atlanta apartments.

Some items you won’t need in your new Atlanta apartment. Use, recycle, donate or toss the things you don’t want to move to the next apartment community six weeks ahead of the big day. Clean out closets, drawers plus the fridge and pantry. This is also a good time to complete a change of address with the post office.

Make arrangements for moving day such as reserving a rental truck or scheduling movers a month prior to moving day. Plan how you will relocate pets and/or plants to the Atlanta apartment community you’ve chosen. Collect and secure important documents such as identification and legal documents that you might need during the move.

Schedule utilities to be switched at both apartment locations at least two weeks before you move. If you haven’t already, start packing now.

The day before you move can be very hectic. Confirm your moving arrangements with the truck rental company or professional movers. Update your address at the bank and with all your creditors. Pack your last boxes. These are the things you will likely need first at  apartments in Atlanta so set them aside to be loaded last or moved by car.

When moving day finally arrives you’ll be all set. Take your time unpacking, make frequent breaks to explore your new Atlanta neighborhood.

Apartment Hunting for Pets

Finding pet friendly Atlanta apartments can be exhausting. How you search for apartment homes in Atlanta where your pets are welcome is important. Many great resources for locating pet accommodations in metro Atlanta exist online. National organizations such as the ASPCA have created a list of internet apartment search tools to help renters find Atlanta apartment communities where animals are welcome. Matching your pet with the perfect Atlanta property is the key to the happy lifestyle you and your pet deserve.

Local animal shelters are often helpful places to locate pet friendly apartments in Georgia as well as other areas where dogs are welcome, neighborhood parks for instance. Clayton County is home to several local and state parks excellent for recreation and dog walking in addition to apartment communities where pets are allowed. The Human Society offers referrals for Atlanta apartments that welcome pets too.

Start your search early! While these apartment hunting tools are available for Atlanta renters, finding an Atlanta apartment that accepts pets can take more time especially if you own an exotic pet or breed. Check with breed specific rescues to find out if they recommend any Atlanta apartments for rent. Be honest with the leasing staff about your pet needs to prevent you from facing lease violations and fines or worse – having to choose between your pet and your apartment home.
