Moving is difficult. There are rentals to tour and applications to be completed, boxes to pack, and furniture to transport. And when that’s all said and done, when the lease has been signed and the boxes have been moved in, exhausted renters are left to deal with the utilities. While figuring out who provides the electricity or the internet is painless when moving a few blocks away, for renters who move from one city to another or from one state to another state, this process is stressful.

Make moving in easier for your tenants by providing them with a utility checklist, listing local providers of utilities like gas, electricity, internet and water. Include information like local schools and maintenance or office hours. Relieve your tenants by creating your own list or by using our fillable utility checklist.
