Moving house is always stressful but when you’re moving into an apartment, you add in a whole new layer of complexity. It gets even more difficult when you’re moving to a relatively level in an apartment building! To make things run as smoothly as possible on moving day, there are a few things you need to consider. Let’s take a look!
Contact the building manager
It’s essential that you contact the building manager in the lead up to your apartment move. They’ll be able to give you advice on how best to manage your move in your new building and you often need to book a lift to use during the process. If you rock up on the day expecting to move straight, your building manager probably won’t be happy!
Book your move ahead of time
Due to the fact that you often need to book a lift during an apartment move, it’s essential that you book ahead of time as you need to coordinate the booking of the lift with the availability of your removalist. Booking ahead also means that you can choose a time which will hopefully be less busy.
Check out the parking situation
Don’t wait until the day to find out what the parking situation is on moving day. Speak to the building manager to ask about your options and remember that you have a moving truck to consider – they often won’t fit in underground parking. Physically go to the building ahead of time to see where you need to park and pass on this information to your removalist.
Get some additional help
When people offer to help on moving day, we often automatically say no out of politeness. However, an apartment move is a situation where you should definitely take on extra help if it’s available! Due to the confined space, you need to navigate lifts, doorways and stairs which can prove to be quite challenging. Having some extra help on hand means you can get moved in more quickly.
Choose your removalist wisely
Given the complexity involved with moving into an apartment, it’s essential that you choose a removalist with the right experience. Always ask a removalist what kind of experience they have with apartment moves and look online to see what reviews and testimonials say about their level of experience. When you choose a removalist with the right experience, it gives you the peace of mind that they’ll be able to handle any issues that arise.
