Welcome to Slidell and Covington! Here Are Some Tips to Get Settled

Getting-Settled-NOLA.jpgAre you making the move to Springs at Fremaux Town Center or Springs at River Chase from out of town? While it’s exciting to move to a new town, it can be challenging to learn a new community. Here are some tips to help you make the transition to life in Slidell or Covington a little faster and much less stressful.

Planning for Your Move

  1. As soon as you know you’re going to move, start making preparations. Your transition is going to feel frazzled and harried if you wait until the last minute to book movers and start packing.
  2. Before moving, ask your current service providers — such as your doctor or your veterinarian — to see if they have recommendations for providers in your city.
  3. Pack carefully, labeling those boxes that you will need right away to get settled. This will allow you to unpack in a logical way without getting overwhelmed.

After the Move

  1. As soon as you’re in the new community, find the most convenient place to get your basic household items. You may find that you need a household essential (or can't find it in your moving boxes) and need to make a quick run to the store.
  2. When you unpack your boxes, do it in stages. Trying to tackle everything at once is not realistic. If you packed logically, unpacking should be equally logical.
  3. If possible, make a list of places that will deliver. From pizza to groceries and household supplies, you can save yourself some time if you have a list of delivery services in the area as you focus on setting up your apartment home.
  4. Once the basics are unpacked, start tackling the official paperwork that makes you a resident:
  • Update your driver's license at the nearest Office of Motor Vehicles location
  • Visit the official Slidell or Covington website to learn about community resources and other municipal services
  • Visit Meetup to find social or professional networking groups you can join to meet new people with similar interests

Our goal is to help you feel at home soon after your move. Let our on-site management team know if you have any questions on how to get settled in our community.
