Moving from a 3rd floor to another 4th floor? Is it your first time moving into an apartment? Do you have a long walk, tight hallways, or shared elevators? Whenever you are moving to or from an apartment, there can always be obstacles (and lots of stairs!) along the way. Our professional movers are here to help!
Our Apartment Moving Process
Booking with us is very easy! Once we get the opportunity to get a few questions answered we’ll provide an estimate and confirm a booking with you online, over the phone, or through email. We will be in contact a few times leading up to your move including an email alerting you of the exact movers that will show up on move day.
1. On Moving Day
On move day, we arrive with a clean 26 foot moving truck fully stocked with everything you need for a successful move. After conducting a quick walkthrough of your apartment, we will get the contract signed and begin prepping your apartment for the move.
Prepping the apartment consists of protecting the entryway with pads and specialty door protections as well as covering the entryway floors with a rug runner or pad (where applicable). Leasing offices love us because we take such good care of their buildings!
Once your apartment is prepped, we work on protecting the furniture with shrink wrap, bands, and quilted moving pads. We want to make sure your items are safe and sound during transit! Our movers also come with fully equipped tool bags and will begin disassembling any furniture that needs to be taken apart in order to be moved safely (like beds, tabletops, etc.). Of course, everything that is disassembled will be reassembled at the other location. We can even help transport all your appliances if you have them.
4. Presentation & Final Walk-Through
At the destination, we will make sure everything is exactly where you want it before conducting a final walkthrough and closing everything out.
Once the contract is closed, we let you know the final move total based on the total hours we worked (or the minimum) and you can pay with whatever payment you prefer. We accept cash, zelle, and credit cards.
Tips To Make Your Apartment Move Stress-Free!
Prior to booking your move, make sure to read up on any lease agreements. Get a checklist or list of guidelines from your landlord to make sure you don’t miss any to-do items.
Assess any and all damages to your apartment before moving day. Once you’re done you can schedule a final walkthrough with your landlord.
Double-check that you have access (e.g. keys!) to your new apartment before moving day.
Don’t forget to cancel or change your renter’s insurance, depending on where you’re moving to.
Set up utilities beforehand! There’s nothing worse than having no water or power the first night you move into your new apartment.
Ask your landlord (or building manager) about moving truck access. Depending on where your apartment is located we may not be able to pull right upfront.
Schedule the elevator during moving times. Most apartment buildings have a freight elevator for moving, but you often have to reserve it!
Always have garbage bags handy. Your old garbage won’t be around and those final walkthroughs or lunch breaks will need to be cleaned up.
Clearly mark boxes with what you need for night one. You can always pack an overnight bag instead if you don’t want to unpack boxes.
