Get familiar with the rules 

Before planning anything, familiarize yourself with the rules one last time. That way, you’ll know what your possibilities are and how you can fit a move with your obligations for the day. If rules seem too restricting to follow by yourself, you can always hire Affordable Movers Brooklyn. We’ve moved numerous condos and can make a good, educated estimate of the number of movers and workers needed for a move to go smoothly and in a timely manner. Knowing the rules will help both you and your moving company to plan everything to the minute and get the most of the workforce and time available. By getting to know all of the rules, you’re also avoiding additional costs.  

Consider moving things to storage

Have you considered moving your things to the storage? Cheap Storage NYC is a great and affordable option that can make your life easier. By putting things to storage, you can move out of the condo in case your move-out date and move-in date don’t match. Your belongings will be safe there and you can access them any time you want. When moving, you don’t have to bring everything with yourself – only the necessary things first. You can bring the items in a few rounds which might lessen the cost of a move if you can perform it alone. Whatever the case, you should definitely think about moving things to storage and having a more flexible moving date

Start packing early when moving a condo in Brooklyn

Start packing at least a month before to ensure that you have enough time to get everything done. That way, you’ll minimize the stress when the last two weeks come. It would be better if you could take your time to start decluttering two months before. That will give you time to pack everything just right, give away what you don’t need anymore, and to get some help in a timely manner if you decide that you need some. You’ll also be able to send some items for fixing or cleaning before you pack them and have them ready before the move. If you find yourself overwhelmed, remember that we can help you move out of a condo without a hassle!

Donate or get rid of some items

While you might want to move everything from your condo to the new place, moving is a good time to get rid of many things that you might no longer need.  To inform yourself more, read this Guide to donating clothes. Ask yourself whether you’ve outgrown it, whether you’ve used it (and how often) during the past few years, and also, ask yourself if the benefit that the item brings uses more electricity or space than it’s worth. Maybe you don’t need both blow dryers or you might want to donate all those books that you haven’t read for years? Think about it. Maybe you can even sell some of the furniture that you don’t need. 

Check the available hours 

There’s a certain number of things that you’ll have to check before booking a move with your company or setting a fixed date and time.

What to check when moving a condo in Brooklyn:

  • Check the time for the move – Many condos have time slots when the moving is allowed, and some of them even prohibit moving on a Sunday. Check the time available with your condo manager.
  • Double-check the elevator availability – If your condo has an elevator, it’s possible that you’ll need to announce yourself in advance. 
  • Consult the manager about the parking – Trucks that will transport your stuff may need to be parked near your condo. To avoid troubles, make sure that you check in with the condo manager.
  • Call your moving company to check for the number of people – At the end, inform your moving company of the conditions under which you have to move. They may affect the number of workers needed for the move so that the whole move could be finished in the tight time slot that condos sometimes provide.

Consider hiring professional movers when moving a condo in Brooklyn

Living in a condo can offer many advantages and comforts, like the always mowed lawn. On the contrary, condo moving can be a tiresome, time-consuming task. Moving a condo in Brooklyn can seem like a daunting experience to go through all by yourself. You have to follow specific protocols when moving due to the rules that condos usually set. This may cause additional fees or problems, which is why professional condo movers can make your nightmare move into a wonderful start of a new chapter. Don’t waste another minute of your time getting stressed about the rules. Let the professionals handle your complicated situations and start your life on the right foot. To book a move of your dream, contact us!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
