Moving In

Before your moving day, contact the propertymanager@oldeivy.org to request a temporary code for use at the Log Cabin Drive gates.

Restrictions on Moving Vans and Trucks

Please be aware of the following restrictions on moving vans:

  • Trucks and vehicles with trailers should not use the Beech Haven Trail exit gate, due to a sharp turn. Use the Log Cabin Drive gate instead.
  • Use of 18-wheel vehicles is inappropriate because of the narrow roads and tight turns in the Neighborhood.
  • If your mover plans to use an 18-wheeler, you must obtain prior approval from the property manager before the truck enters the neighborhood.

Be sure to alert your moving company and van driver about the gate restrictions. Ask them to take extra precautions when driving in the Neighborhood.

Do not let your moving van block driveways or parking places, or park in a fire lane (marked by red curbs). If necessary, alert your driver to be prepared to move the van.

Portable Storage Units

When moving in or out, you may have a single portable storage unit (PODS unit) in a parking area at one time. The PODS unit may be parked at Olde Ivy for no more than three days. If you plan to park one of these units at Olde Ivy, please notify the propertymanager@oldeivy.org.

Manor Residents

Before your moving day, contact the propertymanager@oldeivy.org and request that your building garage gate be open during the hours you plan to move in or out. In addition, ask that the protective elevator pads be hung in your building elevator. Residents are responsible for any elevator damage, so think of the pads as protecting your own interests.

On your moving day, please use the garage entrance, rather than the front door of the building, to move your furniture and other possessions.

Two carts are available in each Manor garage. You may use these carts to assist with your move-in process, but please return them to the garage as quickly as possible, since other residents may also need them that day for groceries and such.

Getting Rid of Moving Materials

To avoid overwhelming the recycling bins and garbage bins and dumpsters, you are responsible for getting rid of your moving boxes and blankets. Ideally, you can

  • Arrange for your moving company to remove your moving boxes and blankets.
  • Take the broken-down boxes and the moving blankets to a U-Haul or similar location for free reuse by their customers.

Do not discard moving blankets in the trash, as they are not recyclable and will take up too much room in the garbage bins.

The nearest U-Haul facility is located at Your Extra Attic Storage at 2909 Log Cabin Drive. There is also a U-Haul at the corner of I285 and exit 15 (South Cobb Drive).

Recycling Additional Moving Boxes

After you have moved in, you may have additional boxes to dispose of. For all associations, recycling pick-up is every other Friday (with an adjustment for holidays). Since moving materials can be bulky, please don’t discard them until the day before pickup.

Recycling pickup is early in the morning – on the same day, but in a separate truck from Friday trash pickup.

Condos

If your unit has a recycling bin, stack your broken-down boxes in or near the recycling bin on the recycling pickup day.

If you do not have a bin, check with a neighbor to see if you can place your broken-down boxes in or near their recycling bin on the day of the early-morning pickup. 

The Manor

Large recycling bins are available in each Manor garage. These bins are emptied every two weeks. If room is available, place broken down boxes in, near or behind the recycling bins in the Manor garage. Please do not overwhelm the recycling bins with your moving boxes, even if they are broken down.

Townhomes

Each unit has recycling bins. Stack your broken-down boxes in or near the recycling bin on the recycling pickup day.
