If you're new to town moving day is going to be an exciting one. You're so close to New York City now--it's right across the bridge! You could almost see the lights of Yankee Stadium at night if it wasn't for the billions of other lights competing for space on the Manhattan skyline. But New York and all of that is over there. We're here in Leonia. There's a lot to be excited about here, and a lot to do before you move. You'll need your driver's license, state ID or passport, social security number, and a list of rental references to give to potential landlords so he or she can conduct a proper background and credit check. Some apartment complexes won't accept personal checks for payment of first, last and security, so make sure you know what they need on lease signing day. There are hardly any rental properties out there that will let you move in with a pet unless you pay an additional fee, which is another detail to ask about. Many apartments for rent are not on the ground floor, so you may want to consider hiring a moving company to get your stuff upstairs and settled. Why not have someone else do all of the heavy lifting?
