C. MOVING PROCEDURES

  1. Scheduling the Move

All move-ins must be scheduled through the Eliot House Management Office and must be preceded by a move-in conference at which time new residents receive an orientation of the building, rules and procedures handbook, the necessary paperwork for garage parking, authorized storage lockers, assigned bicycle space, building directory listing, mail and package delivery, etc. It is suggested that this move-in conference be scheduled and completed as far in advance as possible.  A move-in time slot is not allocated or confirmed until the move-in fee has been paid in full. See Section XI for fees.  All move-outs must be similarly scheduled with the Eliot House Management Office well in advance to avoid elevator-use conflicts.
 

  1. Fees (See Section XI)

      Each new resident will be charged a non-refundable move-in fee.  The fee covers the following miscellaneous costs:
 
a.       Placing protective covering on the passenger elevators
b.      Necessary labor to place and remove protective floor covering
c.       Locking off the freight elevator during the move-in period
d.      Adding the resident’s name to the building directories
e.       The ability to receive parking at the current resident rate
f.       Assignment of a storage locker
g.      The ability to obtain a bicycle space, when available
h.      The ability to receive mail and packages.
 
A separate (refundable) check is required for a move-in or move-out to cover any damage that may occur during the move. This check will be held until the move is complete. The Building Engineer will perform an inspection with the resident prior to the start and then again when the move is finished to determine if any damage has occurred. If everything is okay, the check will be immediately returned to the resident.
 
Upon move-out, a personal check must be presented prior to reserving the elevator.
           
Should damage occur, the resident will be advised of the repair charges and then Eliot House must receive a check for that amount, which will be deposited. Upon the funds clearing, the initial check will be returned immediately. If the check does not clear, the unit owner’s assessment will be billed accordingly.
 

  1. Hours of Move

No move-ins and/or move-outs are permitted before 9:00am or after 5:00pm Monday through Friday or before 9:00am or after 1:00pm on Saturday. Deliveries will be permitted on Saturdays between the hours of 9:00am and 1:00pm provided the service elevator has been properly reserved through the Management Office. Moving is not permitted on Sundays or national holidays.
 

  1. Furniture and boxes are not permitted to be left in the corridors of the building at any time while the move or delivery is in progress as it obstructs the common elements.

 

  1. Access

      All moves must be done using the South entrance and the service elevator.  The loading dock on the South side of the building should be used.  Please notify the Eliot House Management Office which vehicles are associated with your move so they will not be towed at your expense.  At no time are vehicles allowed to park and load or unload in the Eliot House front driveway.
