Whew, that wasn't so bad. Our kid has been living in an apartment that wasn't what we'd hoped it would be for the last year. Crime rates seemed to erupt about 3 months into the lease. So we helped search for a new place that will hopefully be less a problem, unfortunately someone was mugged in the parking lot of the new place the week before the move in! There is no safe place, and it gave us a chance to revisit safety and alarm the place up, install bars on glass doors/windows, etc, protective dog with big teeth. One thing I have learned, always rent a truck, even if moving only a few miles, it's worth every penny.
