Important Things to Notice When Moving

1 (4)

Moving apartments is a complex and challenging process that should be taken on with maximum consideration and responsibility. Here’s a guide to important signs to notice as you’re planning to move your apartment, as prepared by the residential moving experts at Noah’s Ark Moving.

The Neighborhood Mood

What’s the mood of your new apartment location like? Visit the area at many different times of day to sus out the vibe. See what it’s like there at the usual times that you’d be trying to sleep, heading to work, or walking around. You especially want to visit the area at night to see how loud it gets.

 

Necessary Repairs

You don’t want to move into a location that needs everything prepared. Inspect the new location to see if the entrance, shared spaces, and private areas of the apartment need repair. This included faucets, toilets, light switches, windows, doors, and locks.

 

Storage Potential

Make sure that there’s storage potential at your new apartment, and that you have room not only for all your belongings, but any other new belongings you might accumulate. Keep in mind the varying and shifting schedules of seasonal storage.

 

Customizability?

Verify that you will be able to install shelving, put posters up, or even install a loft bed. Some apartments have rules prohibiting this kind of minor construction – so if that’s a must for you, you will want to find this out way in advance.

 

Physical Accessibility

Make sure to consider all accessibility aspects of their new location, including entranceways, stairwells, doorways, and hallways. You want to make sure that when all your furniture is installed that you will still have mood to comfortably move around. This is especially important in kitchens where limited maneuverability can easily cause accidents. Definitely consider whether you’re comfortable using the stairs on a daily basis if the new location is a walk-up.
