Move Out Tips

  • Move belongings in the early morning or late afternoon hours to avoid peak times.
  • Do not park on fire lanes, roadways, grass, or other non-parking areas.  Vehicles may be towed.
  • Utilize moving bins that can be checked out from your neighborhood desk.
  • If you check out a moving bin, ensure that you return it within the allotted time frame.
