The Difference Between Moving Apartments and Moving Houses

Many people think that moving any type of residence is the same of moving any other. For the most part it is. Personal belongings must be packed and loaded, the old residence cleaned, the new one prepared, and then belongings unloaded and unpacked. However, there are some key differences between moving an apartment and moving a house. These differences will make you want to deal with only experienced apartment moving companies if you are moving apartments in New York City.

The biggest difference between moving an apartment and moving a house is having to navigate tight spaces. Apartments tend to have shared hallways, occasionally have small elevators, and tight stairwells. Brooklyn movers are used to dealing with these tight spaces but for a non-professional they can be difficult to manage. Make sure you take your time moving any large or heavy pieces of furniture and use appropriate tools for moving up and down stairs.

Another aspect that differs between apartments and houses is the amount of parking available. Many houses come with at least a bit of personal parking whereas apartments rely on garages or have no parking at all. This may make it difficult to park a moving truck near to your apartment. Before renting a truck speak with your superintendent to discuss different parking options on the day of your move. As your move draws nearer remind him of the date and any arrangements you have made.

The final difference between houses and apartments is the amount of stuff you will be moving. Even if your house and apartment have a similar square footage, people tend to accumulate more belongings in a house than they do in an apartment. If you live in an apartment you may want to look into storage and movers to give you options for keeping your out-of-season items in a low-cost storage unit. Ideally, if you are moving within the city, you can keep the same storage unit even when you move apartments.

Many Brooklyn moving companies specialize in moving apartments. If you find yourself having to move an apartment either find an experienced company to work with, or do plenty of research about the kinds of snags you might run into throughout the process.
