Setting up Utilities & More at Your Gainesville, Florida Apartment

Moving to a different apartment presents many challenges. In addition to the physical challenges like lifting heavy furniture and unpacking boxes, there are also logistical challenges like hooking up your electricity and forwarding your mail.

Upon moving into a new Gainesville, Florida apartment, the following are some utilities you may need to have activated:

  • Phone
  • Internet
  • Cable hookup (some cable providers offer cable-internet-phone packages)
  • Electric
  • Water
  • Gas

In addition, you will need to provide a change of address to:

  • The post office
  • Your employer
  • Your school
  • Your bank
  • Your doctors, dentists, pharmacy, and other health-care providers
  • Credit card companies
  • Insurance companies
  • The drivers license office—Florida law requires you to update your drivers license address within 10 days after moving
  • Vehicle registration

If you need assistance with utility hookups and address changes at your Gainesville apartment, stop by your leasing office. The leasing office has a lot of experience helping residents get settled. In addition, leasing staffs often can provide residents with move-in packets of information and money-saving coupons, too.

“The scenery and space is amazing. The apartment leasing staff and maintenance staff are wonderful. I love that its a gated community and all though it's family and student oriented it's still extremely quiet.”
“This is a quiet gated community with nice apartments located in a great area.”
“We just moved in about a month ago. We had maintenance in so many times trying to get things set up for my disabled son - but they never complained. The grounds are beautiful. The people in the office are always polite and helpful. Very happy here.”
