Hello All, We're looking to move to Wilmington in early December. We are looking to rent for about $650-750/mo. for a 2 bedroom. Can anyone suggest any apartment communities or rental websites? I have checked out the main apartment websites, such as apartmentfinder.com and rent.com, but if anyone has any other suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated. I know that there is only so much you can find out on-line, and it seems I have hit a research plateau. I'm so excited though, I want to keep looking! I have found a few apartments that seem to fit the bill, any opinions about Governours Square Apartments, or Forest Hills Apartments? Also, I am a little concerned about the cost of the move itself. We don't need to hire a moving company, we are just going to rent a truck. How much should we plan to spend on a truck from Cleveland, OH to Wilmington? $500? $1000? We just figured we would go with u-haul, but has anyone had better experiences with other rental truck companies? Thanks!

Hi!

I just moved here from Columbus, Ohio a couple weeks ago and went through the same thing you are going through. I am renting a two bedroom off of N. Market @ The Park at Three Oaks and my rent is $855. There are some cheaper ones though just sometimes not in great areas, so be careful. The ones you mentioned, I have looked at and I didn't care for them but check them out yourself if you can.

Some sites that I used frequently were craigslist, Wilmington Realty North Carolina Rentals, Wilmington NC house rentals -property management - CENTURY 21 Sweyer & Associates, and you may want to check out the historic district's website for something in that district if that interests you...www.historicwilmington.com/rentals (broken link). I hope that helps a bit.

If you have ANY questions about apts. or anything else please don't hesitate to email me @ Jill713@yahoo.com.

As for the UHaul...it's going to cost you about $850-1000. I went with a moving company (because I had to) and it cost me $2300. You can go to Uhaul.com and get yourself a direct quote though.

Good luck and get in touch if you need to!

Pods is another option. It's a good choice between UHaul and a traditional moving company. You pack/unpack it yourself but they move it. Liz

Hey, thanks for all your help and info. I'll just have to keep checking up on things daily.
I actually moved to Cleveland from Columbus 2 years ago, I never thought I'd miss Columbus, but, I couldn't be more excited for the move to Wilmington. Are you enjoying it there? Does it compare in any way to Ohio? I don't need it to be the same, I'm just curious. Thanks!

I can't say that I feel any comparisons to Ohio. I honestly feel like I am in a totally new and unique place. I love it here!!! I couldn't be happier with my choice to relocate. Granted I have only been here about 3 weeks, but so far, I dont miss Columbus at all. I have found good restaurants, shopping, and even better views and things to do so I hope you enjoy it as well.

Excellent! Well, I am so excited to make the big move! I'm glad to hear that you are enjoying it, and I hope that I will as well when I get down there. I think we might be moving a month earlier too, so now I'm even more anxious!

We were going to make the big move in early December, but I think that it might be early November now. I could not be more excited. Especially since we will be moving just in time to miss Ohio weather!

Yeah, that is going to be the great thing. I am so excited to miss all the nasty weather that comes along with being in Ohio. I am anxious to see what winter is like here.

Good luck with all the planning!

I too am considering the big move from Columbus, OH to Wilmington. Can't transfer with a job, so how is the job market there? Any advise/suggestions would be great. Thanks.
