Alert your most important social circle about your move
This should also include notifying your bank, employer, insurance company, magazine subscriptions – and don’t forget mom.
1 week out, if possible:
Purchase renter’s insurance
To receive your keys, you will need to show your declarations page, with a minimum of $50,000 in liability coverage.
If you have a pet, ready them for the move
Pets are smart, so they probably already know something is going on. But you’ll need to be ready to pay for your pet deposit and fee before moving in.
If you have kids, register them for their new school:
Elementary School (grades K-5): RICHARD J. LEE Elementary School
Middle School (grades 6-8): COPPELL Middle School WEST
High School (grades 9-12): COPPELL High School
A few days before
Start packing (or if you’re an early-bird, this was done weeks ago)
Double-check the details
Did you remember to schedule your moving elevator time and call the movers??
Schedule the pickup of your keys from the leasing office
Don’t forget to have a copy of your renter’s insurance declarations page, your electricity account number and provider’s name, pet deposit/fee and first month’s rent paid on the online portal, and your Toll Tag number handy for moving day.
Pack a small moving day kit
Toiletries, a few paper goods, medications, a change of clothes and dog food are recommended. It always seems like Advil and toilet paper are the hardest things to find when you need them most!Download PDF
