Things to Consider Before Moving to a High-Rise Apartment
Moving to a new building is always exciting. You get to live in a new neighbourhood, meet new people and enjoy a different lifestyle. But there are important things to take into account before shifting to your dream abode.
Here are a few factors which you must consider before moving to a high-rise apartment.
- Know your building rules
- Plan out the available space
- Discard items that are unnecessary to carry in the new building
- Book your parking space
- Make sure no damage is done to your furniture when moving in
Let us now discuss each one of them in detail.
Know your building rules
Most high-rise buildings have a certain set of rules and regulations regarding the moving process. Instructions pertaining to the time of the move, the type of elevators fit for holding heavy furniture and reserve parking permits vary from building to building.
You might have to reserve a freight elevator or one of the main ones on your scheduled shifting time. Talk to the building’s management about how the process will go before you hire movers and packers to do the job on your shifting day. Once you have sorted these things, it will be easier to move into a high-rise building.
Plan out the available space
When shifting in a tall building, you must plan out the available space in your mind’s eye. You don’t want to carry the furniture all the way and realize that there is no space to put that particular piece of furniture in your unit or worse, you can’t carry your favourite couch through the doorway!
One of the best tips you can follow before moving to a high-rise apartment is to take a look at the building’s floorplan. You can roughly measure your furniture and figure out if the larger pieces of furniture can pass through the building’s doorways, elevators and your apartment’s hallways.
Declutter the space
The best tip to follow when moving to a high-rise building is to organize only the most essential items to take. Although, moving and shifting to a new place is quite exhausting, not only physically but also mentally, it is best to declutter and organize your stuff before moving to a high-rise apartment.
If your apartment is on the 11th floor, you don’t want to carry unnecessary things (even if they have a special sentimental value) all the way to the top and then realize that they were not even important. If your shifting day is near and there is not much time left, these tips to declutter your home over a weekend would be really helpful.
Book your parking space
A smart tip for moving to a high-rise is to book your parking space beforehand. Parking spots are limited in high-rise buildings, especially if large trucks will be carrying your load. Talk to the building’s managing authorities and reserve a parking space for the load-carrying vehicles. You don’t want any conflict on your moving day.
Make sure no damage is done to your furniture when moving in
To make the transition easy and hassle-free make sure you have taken the following precautionary measures before moving to a high-rise apartment. You must understand that when you move to a high-rise apartment, you have to carry each and every item through common interior parts of the house before making it to your personal unit.
Take extra safety measures like padding doorways or bubble wrapping handles and other delicate parts of your furniture so that no damages are made to the apartment and also your belongings are safe when they are moved in.
