Before you pack up your things, you need to know that moving to a condo or apartment comes with special requirements. Condo or apartment moving is entirely different from moving into a house. Condo or apartment moving requires a moving strategy and proper planning skills. To make your move lesser of a daunting task, Morrison Moving has some essential moving tips to make your condo or apartment move stress-free.
Have a plan:
One of the most important parts of any move is to stay organized. We recommend that you plan. There is nothing worse than setbacks when moving because they cost you time and money. It is a good idea to create a checklist of tasks. This will help you keep track of everything that you need to do and keep you on track. On your list, include your goals and a schedule. Don't forget to get an inventory of all your items to get the correct packing supplies. Unfortunately, some people don’t realize how much stuff they have.
We suggest that you get rid of all the items that you don't use anymore. Purging is an excellent idea for anyone moving to a smaller space. Old junk takes up space and sometimes forces people to pay for storage for items like old furniture, clothes, and other things that are not being used. You can feel good when you donate household items to the Salvation Army or Goodwill. If you instead try to make some money off your old items, consider having a garage sale weeks before your move. This will help your move go smoother because you have less stuff to take to your new home.
Get the Correct Sized Truck:
Whether hiring professionals or doing it yourself, ensure you have the right-sized truck. Taking multiple trips will cost you more and take more time. A bigger truck may cost more, but preventing a second trip is worth it.
Get Help with Moving:
When you live in a condo or apartment building with no elevator and only stairs, you will need some help. Sometimes asking friends and family to help is daunting and requires some quick thinking. If you want a stress-free move, consider hiring professional condo movers. They will make things go a lot easier because they are experts in condo and apartment moving. Most movers carry insurance, and you will be covered for accidental damages or broken items. If you are getting your friends and family to help, make sure you give them plenty of notice and confirm constantly.
Book the Elevator in Advance:
Scrambling for an elevator at the last minute is a nightmare. We recommend that you book the elevator in advance. Many condos and apartment buildings allow tenants to book the elevator for moving for several hours. Check with the property managers to see if this is an option for you.
