What Should I Be Aware of When Moving into my Space Coast Condo?
Condominium style living is a popular choice in the state of Florida. Condominiums offer a sense of community while still being individually owned and sellable. As such, condominiums often come with strict rules and regulations regarding living and especially moving. Many condominiums require that you clear your moving day with management to avoid too many move-ins on one day, and not disturb the residents. It is essential that you know these restrictions and confirm them with management before your move-in day. Once you've solidified your move-in date, ask and see if they offer any extra accommodations such as elevator rentals. Be sure you won't get slapped with any additional moving day fees upon moving in.
There are a few common mistakes that are made during moving day, which can be easily avoided if you are aware of them. Check out this list of common move-in day mistakes.
Not Transferring Your Utilities On Time. Remember to check your utility company to make sure you have water and power when moving into your new condo. You also want to make sure you aren't still paying for the utilities where you moved out!
Not Packing Ahead of Time. Leaving packing till the last minute is extremely tempting because the last thing any wants to do is pack up all their belongings. However, it's a costly mistake! You'll end up extending your moving day by hours, cramming everything into unlabeled boxes, and keeping junk that you should have thrown away or donated.
Not Labeling Your Boxes. Labeling your boxes is the key to a successful move. If you are taking the time to pack your belongings in an organized manner, labeling your boxes is the simplest way to keep that organization going. If you hire movers, they will even be able to put your boxes in the correct location.
Not Getting Moving Estimates Or Researching Moving Companies. It is essential always to set a budget for situations like this, and it's even more important to stick to that budget. Most moving companies should give you free estimates for your moving day! However, just because a moving company might be cheaper doesn't mean you should go with them! Make sure you check out their social media reviews, Google reviews, and even their website!
Not Prioritizing Safety. Most people who are getting ready to move all their belongings from one home to another ask their friends and family to help with the move. We often forget that our friends and family are not professional movers and do not know how to lift correctly, carry, and walk up and down steps with heavy furniture and boxes. Be sure that you consider everyone's safety when moving.
Not Making A Move-In Day Essentials Box. One of the best things you can do for move-in day is to pack an 'essentials' box. This box should include immediate toiletries, enough towels, clothes for a few days, pots and pans that you will cook in, and sheets and pillows. If you are not getting unpacking services, this box will be a lifesaver! After a long day of moving, you do not want to be tearing through boxes, wondering where your toothpaste is.
