There could be many reasons as to why you could be moving apartments. It could be because you’re expecting a new addition to the family. It could be because you saved up enough money to buy/rent a bigger place. Whatever your reason is, congratulations! You deserve it.
It’s time to think about moving. Even though you’re moving within the same complex, you still have plans to make. Don’t worry, it’s not as nerve-wracking as it looks from afar. It could be easy if it’s handled well, especially by a team of professionalists. About that, we’ll talk later. Let us enlighten you on some tips and tricks to make your move better.
Let the property manager know about your plans
Firstly, you have to talk to your property manager/landlord and figure out any available places within your building. Understand the requirements and procedure, and if needed, you might be placed on a waiting list. You have to be vigilant and keep an eye out on available places before someone swoops in and gets them. Then, you might have to sign a new lease, but some of the procedures could be omitted. Make sure you have all the information down and act quickly. It’s not a matter of death and life, but it could get dramatic.
Make a Plan
Never underestimate your moving schedule even though you’re doing it in the same building. The same effort, time, and money will go into the whole process. One good thing is that you don’t need any trucks, which can save a bit of cash. However, you’ll still need professional movers to help out with the heavy furniture or technology pieces you have.
Our team at H2H Movers can help you with packing, unpacking, and making the process easier and safe. You can visit our website and find more information right here.
When we mention packing and unpacking, it’s good advice to tell you that YES, you still need to pack. Even though you’re moving several floors up or down, you still need to box everything. If you want to limit the trash, you can put your stuff in drawers or baskets. Or we can help out with our own materials. Whatever floats your boat. Beforehand, you can start moving little by little, so you can leave the big stuff to our team once the day comes.
Set up Utility Accounts
Your responsibility is to transfer your current cable, Internet, utilities from your old place to your new one. Go to your suppliers and tell them to change your address in the contract. You might be in the same building, but the address changes nonetheless. Take a notepad and write down all your responsibilities for that matter so that you can check them off later. Not to mention you have to let your bank, post office, and other institutions know about your new whereabouts. Last but not least, tell your family and friends.
Be transparent about your plans to your landlord and other people mixed in the move. If something changes, notify everyone involved, so there won’t be unpleasant situations. It’s okay if you decide to stay in your old place, just keep everyone posted.
That’s it! It’s not that hard, and if it gets hard, you can always trust our services at H2H Movers. We’re always here to help out and make sure that your moving day is a breeze.
