    Plan Your Move

    Whether arriving or departing, we understand that an organized move is ideal. Below are tips to help you plan a stress-free move.

    The Essentials

    • Renter's Insurance: While Balfour Beatty Communities provides all residents with an insurance policy that covers up to $20,000 in personal property coverage with a $250 deductible, we recommend that you obtain additional renter's insurance for extra coverage. Damage to vehicles caused by acts of nature is not covered in the provided renter's insurance and should be filed with an individual's automobile insurance. For more information about the included renter's insurance, please contact theCommunity Management Office.
    • Driver's License: To obtain a new driver's license with your updated information, visit your new county's Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV). You will likely be required to fill out some forms and potentially take a new eye test and photo. You will also have to register and pay for new state license plates at the DMV (the title is also transferred during this process).
    • Change of Address: Don't forget to share your new address with friends and family, post office, utility companies, insurance companies, banks and financial institutions, creditors, health providers, schools, subscriptions, travel/auto clubs, and other organizations.

    Moving with Children

    Moving With Children

    • Keep your children in the loop and talk openly about the move. Filling your children in on the big change sooner rather than later will give them extra time to process. Be available to talk and let them express their concerns openly. A writing journal may also give them the opportunity to write down favorite memories and jot down their thoughts and feelings.
    • Explore together. Spend time researching the area to see what fun things there are to do in your new town. You can also research sports and community activities in the area, such as events held by the Balfour Beatty Communities'LifeWorksprogram. For school-age children you can also review their school calendar to see if there are any upcoming interesting activities.
    • Get them involved with the packing process. Organize a special box with their favorite things and unpack this box first so that they feel at home.
    • Prepare for goodbyes. Collect email and street addresses as well as phone numbers from friends and neighbors. You can even prepare a message book for your child with well wishes from neighbors and friends to prepare them for their new journey.
    • For the move itself, make sure to have plenty of entertainment available such as car/plane-friendly games, CDs, books/magazines, healthy snacks and a portable DVD player.

    Eco-Friendly Move

    Eco Friendly Move

    At Balfour Beatty Communities, we take sustainability seriously. Below are a few suggestions to help you relocate responsibly.

    • Condense and simplify your belongings. The less things you have, the less you have to move. To lessen the load, try hosting a yard sale to earn a few dollars for your upcoming adventure or donate your belongings to a local charity organization.
    • Think ahead by starting to save newspapers and coupon flyers early. They are perfect for wrapping your knickknacks and won't cost you extra money. You can also save bubble wrap, packing peanuts and padded envelopes from various purchases.
    • Invest in reusable bins or trunks. If you prefer using cardboard boxes, visit local stores to see if they have boxes that may have otherwise been discarded. Be sure to recycle your used boxes when you are finished with them.
    • Pass on the water bottles. Moving boxes and furniture can be a strenuous activity and it is important to stay hydrated. Consider purchasing a water filter or reusable water bottle. If you do use plastic water bottles, be sure to recycle!

    Moving with Pets

    Moving With Pets

    • Review the Balfour Beatty Communities Pet Addendum, found inPolicies & Forms. It would also be helpful to research state/province leash laws, pet ordinances, and pet licensing requirements applicable to your new location.
    • Reach out to your current vet for a copy of your pet's medical records as well as any travel advice or vet recommendations in your new area. They may also offer some tricks to lessen the stress caused by traveling.
    • Prepare new ID tags for your pets with your new address. If your pet is micro-chipped, make sure the database is updated as well.
    • Pets like routine and will notice any unusual activities such as packing. Try packing over an extended period of time to lessen the anxiety for both you and your pet. Set up a familiar place in your home and maintain your usual feeding and bathroom break schedule.
    • Stress has been known to cause misbehavior in pets and sometimes even causes them to runaway. Make sure to have a recent photo on hand in case this unfortunate event occurs.
    • For small animals kept in cages, to prevent draft and keep them calm, be sure to cover the cage with a cloth.

A: Unless you've properly cleared your quarters, the allotment will automatically start back up the next month, however, your past due rent for the month in which we have missed your allotment would be due immediately.

A: As part of a DoD initiative, new and renovated homes will be equipped with electric and gas meters. Once all homes in a neighborhood are metered, consumption and costs will be tracked for one year period (mock billing). An average consumption will be determined for each type of unit in each neighborhood and this will be established as the initial utility allowance baseline. The top 10% and bottom 10% are excluded from this calculation. For more information on this program and how you can be rewarded for conserving, visit theUtilitiespage.
