1. Schedule Your Move-in
Please contact us 10 days prior to your scheduled move in. Just a reminder, your lease will start on the 5th of the first month of your lease. We will schedule appointments on a first come first serve basis. So, if you are traveling in town and would like a specific time please contact us right away. We will do our best to accommodate your needs.
2. How to Turn on Your Utilities
Greenville Utilities Commission (Electric, Water, Gas): 252-752-7166
Have your utilities set to turn on the first day of your lease (regardless of when you plan to move in). Only one person can create an account for the house/unit, so this needs to be decided between roommates ahead of time. Because our move in dates are in the summer, when the NC heat is high and the humidity is thick, you will want the lights to come on and the home to be cool! Please set up your utilities account at least 2 days before your lease start date.
When scheduling your Move in Orientation with us, please email us a copy of your Utility Verification from Greenville Utility Company (GUC). Unfortunately, we will not be able to grant you access or keys to the home until all of the utilities are turned on and you provide us with a Utility Verification Form from GUC. When you call to activate utilities please ask if your home has gas. If it does, have it turned on now so that you are not charged an additional activation fee in the winter. This will save you a cold night’s sleep and money.

6. Trash and Recycling
Trash and Recycle pick-up is Monday morning by the city. If Monday falls on a city holiday pick-up will be that Wednesday. This service requires proper placement on the day of your scheduled collection: Have the cart(s) at the curbside by 6 a.m. of your service day. Make sure you do not overfill the cart. The lid of the rollout cart must be closed. Bags outside of a rollout cart will not be picked up. The rollout cart must be within 3 feet of the curb, but not in the street. Place the rollout cart with the metal bar facing the street. Have at least 3 feet between the rollout cart and other obstacles. (i.e. another rollout cart, mailbox, tree, etc.) A container blocked by a vehicle will not be serviced. Carts must be returned to the backyard by the evening of your scheduled service day. If you have any questions, please call the Public Works Department at 252.329.4522.
