Moving Day Made Easier

If you’ve decided to move to Canyon Park we’re so excited to welcome you to our property. Moving can feel really stressful and overwhelming but we’ve got some tips to make it as seamless as possible. 

Take some time to study the layout of your new apartment so you can plan ahead where you will want to put your furniture. Using one of these room design apps is a good way to envision what your furniture will look like in the new place. Read carefully through your lease and apartment rules so you will be aware of what’s allowed and what’s not. If you have questions, ask on-site staff for clarification.

Keep all of your moving-related information together in one place. What method or device you use to organize things doesn’t matter as much as simply doing it; so grab a notebook, create a spreadsheet, or use a moving app and create your moving plan.

Your moving plan is likely to contain several lists. Lists are helpful for keeping us on track when we have a big task to accomplish (and moving certainly qualifies as a big task!). If you are moving into your first apartment, it’s handy to have a list of what you will need. 

Be sure to update your address with the USPS. They also have some good information for avoiding moving fraud. Contact your banking, billing, and other accounts to update your address with them, too.

Find out about parking options for your moving van before the day of the move and take pictures of your old place before you leave so you have visual proof of the condition if you need them to claim deposits. It’s a good idea to take a picture of the new apartment, too, before you move in to have a record. 

Thanks for reading, and welcome to our apartment community here in Puyallup, Washington.
