Moving to a high rise means you are more than likely on a floor that requires an elevator to comfortably move your belongings. Could you imagine carrying all your stuff up 10 flights of stairs? Your landlord may let you reserve the elevator for a short period of time. Calculate the number of hours it will take you to move your stuff from the truck to your new apartment and ask your landlord or the management company which deals with the elevators. If available, instead of using the common elevators tenants can use a service elevator to move furniture but you will need to book this and check its availability well in advance before you move.
Parking is another major issue when it comes to moving into a high rise. Typically, there are height restrictions which prohibits vehicles to park a car park to load or unload with. In a case where parking is an issue, you will have to book a truck to transport stuff from the truck to the apartment block. You should consider this as a factor before signing your apartment lease because having to transport your items in this way will, of course, increase the overall cost of your move.
Moving into a high rise is not a one-man job. Try to recruit as many friends and family as possible if you don’t hire a professional moving company. It has hard to see in front of you if you are carrying boxes and it is difficult to know when to turn in a stairwell if someone isn’t helping you.
Before moving into your new apartment, you need to know what to expect and how to prepare for your relocation adventure and your new lifestyle.
