Moving House in Perth: Moving into a High Rise Apartment
Moving home can be incredibly stressful. In fact, this is especially true when moving into a high rise apartment (or similar) where access is limited and local moving services might have difficulty moving particularly large pieces of furniture.
Of course, people move into and out of properties with limited access every day. This being the case, moving into a property with limited access is possible. The important to remember, however, is that planning such a move isn’t just about planning how to get a favorite grand piano (or similar item) up several flights of stairs.
Do you need to Make a Moving Reservation?
If you are planning on buying or renting a street-level single family home with limited access, you will usually be able to enlist the help of local moving services as and when you want to. The important thing to remember with high-rise apartment buildings, however, is that many multi-residence buildings will require you to schedule a specific moving date with them. This is because building managers will need to make arrangements for uninterrupted access for other residents.
Given the above, if you are planning on moving into such a property, you should always make sure to contact building managers as far in advance of your move as possible. Moreover, when you do, always make sure to also ask about the possibility of reserving preferential parking spaces close to main access points, as well as the possibility of using helpful building assets such as freight elevators.
Moving House in Perth the Easy Way: The Importance of Pre-Move Planning
Do you collect Ming Dynasty Vases or cumbersome pieces of antique furniture?
Regardless of what you own, the importance of pre-move planning simply can’t be underestimated when moving into a property with limited access. In fact, if you have a lot of belongings and are moving into a property where access might be an issue, you should always look for local moving services who can help you plan your move by visiting properties in advance, in order to plan around any significant access issues.
In fact, during pre-move visits, professional moving companies such as ourselves can:
- Take measurements of large furniture items and access points
- Identify any doors and/or windows which might require removal and replacement
- Plan in advance where to park in relation to a property
- Advise people moving home in regard to what furniture items it might not be possible for them to relocate with
- Create door plans and interior floor plans of buildings to facilitate easier moving when moving day does arrive
