Considering Moving into a Condo

Are you interested in moving into a condominium, small townhome, or other dwellings where you might incur HOA fees? If this is your first home or you are just tired of mowing lawns and keeping up with property responsibilities, condominium life can be very rewarding. There are certain drawbacks but by and large, condos are easily maintained, usually safe residencies, and a good value for the money spent. Moving into many condos requires special attention because of them being in a planned community and maybe slightly more stressful than a traditional stand-alone house move. Either way, moves are somewhat complicated and require at least a 60-day window to put things in order before the movers arrive. Here are a few tips that can help you ask and answer some important questions if you are moving into a condominium from one of North Carolina’s most experienced moving companies Tru-Pak Moving Systems.

Moving Quotes for Multi-Level Moves

If you are moving into a multi-level condo either locally or in another locale there are certain details about the logistics involved your mover will need, to give you an accurate quote. Issues like floor level, elevator access, maybe details on stairs, and physical issues like narrow hallways and doors. Each condominium buildings have certain peculiarities and may present different issues for movers. Items that might fit into a traditional home might not be compatible with making it to the twenty-first floor. The more information one can acquire about a certain building and any limitations that structure might put on a move is important for all involved. Measuring all of the elements involved including oversized furniture, new hallways, and door opening, and of course rooms will save you time, money, and energy. 

Decluttering Your Current Lifestyle

If you are sure that a condo is the right dwelling then you need to take into consideration that most condos have limitations on storage and provide limited space for items you have acquired. Also, the type of condo you purchase plays a big role in the type of lifestyle you will be able to enjoy. For instance, condos in tourist and beach settings are usually set up as second homes or for transient people. They usually don’t accommodate large families, as they rarely have garages and storage units on-site for bicycles, motorcycles, sporting equipment like surf or paddleboards, ping pong tables, and similar items. If you are convinced these types of homes are right for you and your family you will probably need to start decluttering your possessions. Remember, whatever you take needs to fit into the condo you choose and that might take some surveying on your part.

Ample Parking Space

If having your own parking space, covered garage or even additional slips for a second car is important, make sure you have chosen the right condo to fulfill your needs. You will also need to talk to the property management company when planning your move to inquire about movers having direct access to the building and unit. You might also have to reserve a service elevator for the moving company to have exclusive access to. You might be able to reserve a few spaces at the building’s entrance for the movers to park and unload. Make sure you are in direct contact with your moving company a few days before the move to make sure everyone is on the same page as in scheduling, arrival time and delivery date, and time.
