High-Rise More Manageable
Moving can be a challenging and emotional experience. Not only are you uprooting yourself from a place that feels familiar, but there are also tons of things to consider before, during, and even after moving. In a 2020 survey, 64% of respondents stated that their recent move was one of the hardest things they’ve ever experienced. While moving in itself is already taxing, some other factors can make the experience more intense, such as when you are living in a high-rise apartment. If you’re staying in a high-rise and are planning to move, here are some tips to make the experience more manageable.

Talk To Your Landlord

When moving from a high-rise apartment, it is often quite tempting to simply leave old and bulky fixtures behind. After all, packing everything up, hauling them out of your apartment, and bringing everything to your new home can be overwhelming. However, leaving certain items when you move out of your apartment is also a sure way to put a dent in your security deposit. In fact, property managers say that one of the most common ways to lose your deposit is by leaving belongings in your old apartment’s storage units, closets, and cabinets. As such, before packing, you need to make sure that you and your landlord are on the same page about what you can and cannot leave behind. Be very clear that you are asking to keep your security deposit as intact as possible.

Hire Professionals

Even if your landlord does allow you to leave bulky items behind, moving out of a high-rise can be tiring. Fitting your luggage, boxes, and furniture through narrow doorways, as well as moving them in and out of elevators can be physically draining. Aside from that, you also must clean the apartment that you just vacated.  You don’t have to do all these on your own, though. Hiring professionals to help you move should be a no-brainer. Studies do show that 94% of Americans who used a moving company for their last big move say that “it was worth every penny.” You can also hire professionals to do your apartment building cleaning, too. This way, you can direct your energy towards your new home and to helping your family adjust to their new place.

Have An Essentials Bag

While it’s good to have the help of professionals to move the larger items and clean your old apartment for you, it will also help if you have your own little toolkit or essentials bag to make moving out of your high-rise apartment a breeze. Having this toolkit with you should eliminate the need to go up and down your apartment in case anything unplanned happens. This toolkit should include your moving out checklist, the necessary documents for your move (such as your contract), as well as some tools. These can include a roll of duct tape, a pair of scissors or utility knife, markers to label your things, and a first-aid kit.
Moving can certainly be a challenge, more so if you live in a high-rise apartment. However, there are some ways to make it more manageable. These simple tips are sure to make moving out of your high-rise apartment easier.
