Fixing up, and moving out!

The security deposit and other fees that we have to pay for moving in and out of a place can get quite expensive. As a mover, we hear about this fairly commonly. We thought we would share a few easy (and not so easy) fix-ups to help increase your chances of getting back your security deposit or even worse having to pay extra. Also, make sure to cost compare what's in the contract lease to how much (and how much time) it will cost you to do it yourself.

First of all, please make sure you've done a thorough walk-through and taken photos before you move in, and after we've helped you move everything out of your home. Repairs and cleaning fees can really rack up, so be sure to protect yourself!

Second, at the bottom of this post, please find some helpful links detailing how to do some big hole repairs and also tips about what not to do! Let us highlight a few things: toothpaste is not a good way to repair small holes! Don't cut paint off your wall to take it to be color matched! Joint compound will do the trick for the holes, and your landlord should be able to provide you with a color sample for the walls if you need to paint, or a wall paper code for wall paper if it really needs to be patched. Landlords can often do this for much cheaper than the cost of doing it yourself, and the chance of extra penalties if you make a mistake is removed.

Third, the most important thing to do in a rental situation is to always protect yourself! We guarantee any damage we do to your residence while we are helping to move your items in or out, but it's important to take steps to protect yourself against potentially tricky landlords!

And, as always, don't discount the cost savings that can be incurred by letting us do the heavy lifting and protecting your walls!

Need to get out in a hurry?

We of course all have those tragic or upsetting incidents that require us to move quickly, but sometimes it's a fresh opportunity that causes our prompt relocations. Maybe it's a new baby, a new job, a new opportunity in a new city. Maybe it's a windfall that allows us to upgrade, or move closer to our loved ones. Whatever the reason, what do you do when you need to relocate quick, fast, and in a hurry?

"Recently, I found a steal of a deal on a new place. Three times the size, own my own place, and pay the same (yes, the SAME) price I was paying for a rental. The catch? I had to move out within the week or pay out the nose for having two residences. What a choice! What should I do? Who could possibly help me with all of this?

So, I started taking stock of what I needed to do to make this all happen. I had work, girlfriend commitments, and all the other things you have to do to keep on living/breathing/working/not dying.  I needed to pack everything, find a way to move it out, and clean up the apartment afterwards. After staring down the barrel at an impossible task, I decided to research hiring a moving company.

I called around in Singapore to look for good movers, when I found KNT. I explained to them the situation, and they really helped me out of the bind. First, they gave me a cut rate deal on a storage unit to move everything out of my current residence early. Then, they gave me an even better deal on moving everything into, and unpacking, my new home. 

I had ample time to clean and repair my old home in time to move out and comfortably sleep in my own bed in my new home the first night with almost no hassle. I really recommend calling KNT any time, whether you're in a hurry or not! They really helped me out!"
