Furniture Movers: A must read by the female renters
At Furniture Movers, we write about everything related to house/furniture moving. Educating people about proper moving techniques is one of our passions. So, we thought of writing some articles for female renters. Let’s go 40 years back in time. Women didn’t have equal job opportunities, and they were not independent as they are today. So, single female renters were rare. Anyway, now the world has changed in many ways. Now we can see a considerable amount of female renters, and as Furniture Movers; we make sure to give them a safe house moving experience.
Well, no matter how much the world has changed, still; some people target single renters (you may be a single parent, a widow, or an independent girl without the protection of your parents.) This article is for you out there. As a female renter, how can you be safe during this tough time? See what the Furniture Movers has to say for you.
* Choosing the right Furniture Movers:
Here we are talking about “your”safety. It’s not about keeping your items safe until the relocation completed. As you already know, moving scammers are out there waiting to steal your items. Don’t let anybody know that you are moving alone into the new home. Hiring a reputable Furniture Movers is the best way to prevent unwanted questions. Still, trust no one. Read online reviews along with the referrals from trustworthy sources.
At least get one of your friends to stay with you on the on-site assessment day. Do the same on your moving day as well. You are staying alone in the house with the strangers is not a wise thing to do (even with the staff from a reputable Furniture Movers.)
* Be careful when choosing the house:
Getting some information about the neighborhood is a wise action. Know about the previous crimes and the crime rate. Well, it’s common sense that you can’t live in a neighborhood where “crime” has become regular news.
How about an apartment complex? Yes, you got many vulnerable areas in an apartment complex as well. Garages, parking lots, laundry rooms, and trash dumpsters are the popular places for crimes (for sure, you have seen in many movies as well.) Furniture Movers advises female renters to get motion-sensor lights for vulnerable places around the house.
* Get to know the neighbors:
Anyway, don’t think of making best friends in the new neighborhood. Study the neighbors for a considerable period of time before becoming best friends. Remember this golden rule as a single female renter, “Trust No One.” Going to the creepy laundry room alone is dangerous, so get 2-3 trustworthy neighbors and schedule the laundry day together.
Some additional safety tips by Furniture Movers:
* Make sure you lock the doors always, no matter even you go out for a few seconds.
* Never open the door to strangers. Confirm who is standing behind the door.
* Keep a light on when you are going out, so when you come back late night; you can see the inside clearly.
* If your door lock seems to tamper, call the police immediately, and don’t get in the house, never.
* Furniture Movers say, “Ask for proof that the locks were changed before you move in.”
* A pepper spray bottle would be your best friend when walking through vulnerable areas.
Don’t get over confidence. Also, maintain the safety measures without getting too comfortable after a few days. Don’t trust anyone, including the property manager.
