Start with talking to building management at both your locations – current address and new address – to get across the rules and restrictions for moving.
Moving in/out times at both properties.
Certificate of Insurance deadlines and requirements
Parking Permits that may be required
Review building access doorways, stairs, service elevators etc.
Minimum notification time for your landlord, often 1 month ahead
Also consider what you want to move, what you want to donate and what items you want to put into storage. If you want to donate or dispose of items begin that process asap and take a look at our guide with useful tips and charities. But you don’t want to leave that until your move day, plan a spring clean well in advance. Your moving company will run through all of your items you wish to move when they quote you. It is important to know what is coming with you.
There are thousands of moving companies out there but only a handful of those are professional and experienced. We recommend you do some research and reach out to 2 or 3 of the highest rated moving companies, so you can effectively compare your quote.
Your quote should clearly indicate all of your line item charges and any additional fees that could occur during your move. Do not be fooled by cheap quotes, often those moving companies will add additional fees throughout the move which often can add up to more than your other quotes and can leave you with a negative experience.
We also recommend you look for a moving company with a culture that’s based on safety and customer service. You’ll note they train and support their movers to ensure they meet high industry standards, which means they are efficient and professional in their approach and make you feel comfortable to have them in your home.
