Due to the large student population in Boston, many rental properties have a 9/1 lease. Since so many move on the same day in Boston, one must be prepared so I’ve included a few tips to share for those packing today.
1. Find a parking spot near your new apartment and get your car/ van / truck there ASAP. By the time this post publishes people will be double-parked along the main streets of Back Bay, Beacon Hill, Fenway and Kenmore, Allston, Brighton and through out Cambridge.
2. Call your friends and bribe them heavily to help you move. You’ll need all the help you can get so plan on buying a lot of beer and pizza.
3. If you have not already, call your utility company to schedule hook-ups for services like internet. If you wait until you are already moved in you might be left waiting a lot longer than you expect as half the city calls Comcast and Verizon.
Best of luck
