Apartment Moving Tips and Tricks with Checklist
Moving from one apartment to another is quite stressful. Aside from the stress brought by packing and unpacking your stuff, you also need to consider the property rules in moving and your neighbors on the old and new apartment. You need to make sure that everything is set so your move will go smooth and trouble-free.
And to help you out with your apartment moving journey, here are few tips and tricks along with moving checklists.
Hire professional movers
If you want to make your moving journey easier and less stressful, consider hiring the professionals. There are lots of moving experts around you and quite sure, you’ll find one that suits your needs and most especially your budget.
Secure the parking space
Make sure that movers can park freely near your new and old apartment. If reservation of the space is needed, make sure to do it so your movers can park on it at the moving day. If you plan to do the move yourself, this is quite important too so you can freely park your truck without annoying anyone in your neighborhood.
Your sofa set can certainly fit inside your apartment but can it pass through the door? Make sure to measure the entrance of each and every door so you’ll know if your bulky items of furniture can pass through easily. And if one of your belongings can’t get through the entrance door, you can decide ahead of time on what to do with it (sell, donate or ask a friend to keep it for you).
Take pictures of old and new apartment
Take photos of your old apartment upon moving out. This can help you get your deposit back. Same thing goes with your new apartment, take photos of it before you move in. Take photos of corners and spaces that have issues so you can easily report it to the apartment manager or landlord.
