What are some condo moving tips?

Moving to a new condo can run smoothly. Make it easier on yourself and follow these three moving tips.

1. Take measurements of your new space

To get a better feel of your new surroundings, make a floor plan to maximize your living space. This way, you can plan ahead how you would like to furnish the condo. Stylizing and decorating will be made easier once you have a definite layout of the space. Additionally, the moving will be executed quicker, as you will already have what goes where mapped out.

Modern living calls for minimizing excess furniture, and your huge old sofa is not suitable for your current requirements. Start prioritizing what you actually need and give away or donate the rest.

3. Organize the move

Now that you know what goes into your new condo, set a date for the move. First, look for a reputable moving company. Check out the reviews call to get quotes. Once you’ve picked the right movers, get in touch with your condominium manager. Coordinate your move-in so as not to inconvenience the other tenants in the building.

What to do before moving into a condo?

As your moving date draws near, organizing is crucial in completing your move efficiently and with as little hassle as possible. To do so, there are several things of things to consider:

  • Move on weekdays: Most condominiums typically restrict moving hours on weekends, and some prohibit moving on Sundays altogether.
  • Moving time restrictions: Buildings tend to put up limits to the number of hours you are allowed for moving.
  • Book an elevator: Coordinate with the condo manager and reserve the elevator in advance. Many condominiums have a separate freight elevator precisely for such purposes.
  • Inquire about damage fees: Most condo buildings will require a deposit in the case of moving damages.
