Moving is already a challenging endeavor, but it becomes even more difficult when you add all the tasks you need to finish before transferring to your new home. One of the things you need to take care of is something that many people dread – you need to get your security deposit back from your landlord. As everyone who has ever leased a home knows, the security deposit is a substantial sum of money that will surely assist in covering future bills. For example, you can put it towards hiring our moving specialists at müv that will ease your relocation. But, how do you go about getting your security deposit refunded as quickly as possible?

Quick tips to get your security deposit back from your landlord

Steps we recommend include:

  • Take photos of your old home prior to returning your keys to prove things like cleanliness, carpet conditions, etc. 
  • Remove any marks or dents in the carpet. Consider steam cleaning the carpets to remove any soil, pet hair, etc. If your carpets have dents from furniture, place ice cubes on the dents to magically re fluff with a spoon to remove the dents. 
  • Spackle or fill nail holes in the walls from hanging art and other items. If you do not have spackle available, use white Ivory soap, toothpaste, and other items to fill nail holes in your walls.
  • If you have scuff marks on hardwood floors, cut a hole in a tennis ball, stick the ball on the end of a broom, and rub the scuff mark until it disappears.

Recently hired Muv for our local move. Can I just say, this company knows what they are doing! I have moved 14 times and have never had a company as professional and responsive. The crew was amazing and the crew leader, Joseph, was top-notch. From the clean, well-maintained equipment, hard-working and always courteous and conscientious crew, they made this move so smooth and stress free. Beginning with booking the move to paying the bill, everything was explained clearly and as advertised. If you're looking for a great moving company, I strongly encourage you to give this company a try.
