Apartment Moving Mistakes: A Reminder

There are a lot of perils for the apartment mover when planning the move so any advantage you can have, the better. Regardless of whether you are a diy apartment mover, using a moving company like Hercules Moving of Virginia Beach, or doing a hybrid move of both options, these tips can help.

Apartment Mover Tip: Using A Container

If you do opt to use a large container where everything just gets picked up in one container swoop and delivered to the new apartment address, make sure to do a little homework. First, make sure your apartment management will even allow you to have a container in their parking lot. And if so what hours can you have it. Also is there a certain place you have to unload from and what is the time limit to have it removed.

These are all vital. You do not want to show up at the new apartment complex just to find out your container has been refused away. That is feeling no one wants to experience.

make sure that you have adequate parking so that when the movers move up or you move up at Arena truck or whatever but you’re actually allowed to unload somewhere. In fact as a general find out how many spots your hat because you’re gonna have a couple cars plus a moving truck.

I would also ask about any procedures of how you’re supposed to move in at the apartment. You don’t want to face any penalties before you even moved the first sofa into the new place right. But I would even try to find people that you know who have moved the place you’re moving to and asked what pitfalls did you encounter when you moved here?

I would highly advise against loading the container without help. At the very least make sure you have 3 or 4 people to help you. A better choice would be to hire a moving company for the heavier items, if they will go for this type of move.

The Drive

The fact that you do not have to drive a truck might be a big relief. A pod will get transported to where you need. Keep in mind though, however you packed it, is how it is going to arrive. If stuff is bouncing around and gets broken there is no recourse. A professional moving company packs and ships which makes sure both of these critical tasks get taken care of properly

The Return

Make sure you know all the stipulations and rules concerning how and when the container must be returned.
