Its four-bedroom floor plans are perfect for the student lifestyle and include everything you would need in one place.

The leasing office can also setup in-home sprays for your apartment until the problem is resolved. In addition, it is all included in your rent at no extra charge to you!

Moving in to your Tallahassee Apartment

Moving can be a stressful time if you are not organized and know what to expect. Here are your tips from the AptsinTally team to de-stress your move!

 

Have a first-night/Important items box

This box, which you will pack last, is filled with essentials for your first day/night. Include toilet paper, paper towels, and soap in this box for use during move-in. It is also a good idea to pack cleaning supplies in this box for when you get to the apartment. Your apartment should have been cleaned before you arrive, but this could happen months before you move-in when the old tenants moved out. Alternatively, you could have a fast move-in where your apartment complex did not have time to schedule your cleaning. If you apartment was not cleaned at all, contact your on-site community manager to be scheduled.

 

keys-2070722_1920Know what you need to bring to receive your keys

Many apartment communities need to see a few important documents before you can get your keys. It is a good idea to have your I.D., vehicle registration, and insurance papers handy for the leasing agent checking you in. If you have to turn on your utilities before you can move-in, have those confirmation emails handy in case you need to show them to the complex. Another thing apartment communities might ask for before you move in is your first month’s rent. Check with your community to see if this needs to be a cashier’s check or money order. Many apartment communities will not accept a personal check for new move-ins. Many apartment communities have express check-in options for people that provide all of this information early. If your community has an express check-in line this year, they will most likely have it again the next. This will allow you to have more time to move in and less time waiting in line.

Find out the parking policy ahead of time

Many apartment communities have roam towing agreements with local towing companies. While most might waive this contract during move-in, some might not. Call and check with your apartment’s office to see what their policy will be on move-in day. It is also a good idea to find out where your apartment is and get a hold of you community’s map if possible. This will help you find parking if someone is helping you move and needs to park in visitor’s parking.

Fill out conditions form first

 

Your apartment community should give you a conditions form when they hand you your keys. If they do not, ask for one. Then, go to your room and fill it out meticulously before you move anything in. This may sound like a pain and a waste of time, but it will be helpful when you move out. Make sure you also take a photo of the paper for your records since the community might not offer you a copy. Take this form to the office after you fill it out and then begin to move things in. This form is what the apartment complex will use to charge you for any damages to the apartment after you move out. Taking photos and filling out your form before you move in will provide an accurate picture to what your apartment looked like when you moved in.

Be Patient

When moving into an apartment it is important to remain calm and patient with the staff on hand. Many of the staff have been pulling extra-long days for several weeks to prepare for move-in day. When a work order is put into the system for something a new resident needs fixing, those work orders are placed in priority order. If someone’s air conditioner is not working, the maintenance technicians are going to get that order attended to first versus someone whose kitchen light is out.

Although moving is a stressful time, following these tips can help reduce your stress and make your move run smoothly.

Tips On Painting Your Tallahassee Apartment

Painting a Tallahassee apartment.

Are you considering a new coat of paint on your apartment walls in Tallahassee? Completing a painting project is not only satisfying – it can be a lot of fun, too. If you’re new to the painting process, this guide is for you. We’ve outlined all the best tips you’ll need to have a fun time with great end-results for your apartment painting.

Places to Buy

There are all sorts of great paint store options for apartments in Tallahassee. Here are the top picks throughout the region:

 

Best Colors for Your Apartment

Finding the best colors for your own apartment decorating is based on a few important considerations. Use this quick how-to breakdown to get a plan laid out for your own project:

Color Matching 101

Most people use a color wheel to help them match up colors that look and feel good together. The basics follow the warmth and coolness spectrum. You have warmer colors like red and orange on one side with their complements like blue and green on the other side. In the middle are neutral tones like black and white which can be used to lighten or darken your matching colors.

Match the Carpet/Floors

You can change the walls by choosing a different paint color to warm up or cool down a room. But there are some aspects you may not be able to change in your apartment. Depending on your floors or carpet, you’ll want to keep your paint colors matched up with a consistent style.

Match Your Furniture & Decor

Getting a new coat of paint should also reflect your apartment’s furnishings. You’ll want to pick a color scheme that also looks good with all your furniture. Use the color matching guide above to help coordinate color choices with both your furniture and your walls.

Match Your Tastes

Finally, you need to choose a color scheme that you’re happy to see every day. Ultimately the colors you pick should match your taste – and you should be happy with it!

Typical Costs

Costs can vary due to all sorts of factors: the size of your apartment, the quality of the paint you choose, the number of rooms you’re painting, etc. You’ll want to choose a high quality interior paint. It’s a good idea to research different paint brands beforehand. This guide from Consumer Reports is a great place to start and offers cost estimates. If necessary, you can stagger the painting project room-by-room to keep costs spread out over the course of a few weeks.

Painting Time-frame

Much like the costs, the time-frame can vary based on the size and scope of your painting. The true time-eating factor relates to getting your apartment ready for painting – clearing out furniture, putting painting tape on the wall seams, and other factors. You should expect to spend about a day or so of work per major room in your apartment.

Navigating Landlord Issues

Finally – and perhaps most importantly – you need to clear any big renovation project with your landlord first. Remember that even though you live there, your Tallahassee apartment technically belongs to your landlord. Most landlords will be happy that you want to make their property look better. But always remember to get the go-ahead first before you start.

Good luck and have a great painting project!


How to Travel with Your Pet

We all love our pets, but traveling with them can be difficult if you’re not prepared. Here are our top tips on traveling with your healthy furry friend.

Before Traveling

Before you leave on your vacation, there are a few things you’ll need to get in order to provide a great vacation experience for you and your pet.

 

Pet Friendly Establishments

The last thing you want is to book a trip and find out where you’re going is not pet-friendly. Save some time and hassle by checking out Go Pet Friendly. There, you can search for pet friendly places by city, state, category, and establishment name. Find a pet friendly place along the way? Share it with them!

 

Visit Your Vet

Not sure if your pet is up to traveling? Your vet will be able to answer all your questions about your pet’s health. Make sure you have current copies of your pet’s vaccination and medical records. Traveling Internationally? Your pet will need a passport. Pet passports differ with each country, so check out the list of requirements for your travels here. Your vet can also help provide you with the necessary documents to create a pet passport.

 

Dog at the veterinarianIdentification

Before you travel, make sure your pet’s collar fits well and has your information displayed clearly on it. The American Veterinary Medical Association also recommends having a travel I.D. on your pet’s collar that has your information and your accommodation’s contact information. This way, if your pet is lost, they have a better chance of being returned to you. Micro-chipping your pet might also be beneficial and should be discussed with your veterinarian.

 

 

Carriers and Crates

Visit your local pet store and find a crate or carrier appropriate for you animal. Your crate or carrier should be large enough for your pat to sit, stand, lie down, and turn around. Check airline restrictions to make sure your pet’s carrier meets all requirements. Look for the Guaranteed On-Board seal on your pet’s carrier like this one, for a smooth travel experience. To learn more about the Guaranteed On-Board program, please visit their website. After you buy the carrier, allow your pet to get used to it before traveling long distances. Put a familiar toy in the carrier, or spray it with catnip to entice your pet to explore and become comfortable with their new carrier.

 

During Travel

Always schedule rest stops for your dog on long trips. Not only will this prevent possible accidents, but it will also give your dog or cat a chance to stretch his or her legs and get fresh air. Make sure you have a good quality leash to prevent your pet from running away from you. On an airplane, look into TSA Fast Pass leash and harnesses to help make your security screenings and walks easier. Make sure to pack familiar toys and their bed to comfort your pet in a new environment. Having familiar things around may decrease anxiety in your pet.

 

Moving?

Sometimes when you’re moving, having someone else move your pet is a better option, especially overseas. Get a free quote from Pet Travel Transport, and rest assured your pet is safe with them. Moving to Tallahassee? Check out this Pet Guide to Tallahassee to find everything you’ll need, including pet-friendly apartments!
