Reserving an elevator
Some condo, apartment or dorm buildings require you to book the service elevator to complete your move. This means that you and your movers have permission for the use of the elevator. The elevators will be available to you within your scheduled time frame. Sometimes people that are moving underestimate the time that is required to book the elevator. It is recommended that you ask your movers for their estimated time needed for elevators. Inadequately planned bookings do not leave enough time to complete the move. Always keep in mind that if another resident/mover has the elevator booked after you, you could be forced to wait for them to finish before you can complete your move. Being put in this situation is inconvenient and will add charges at the end of the move because you must pay the moving company for the waiting period.
To make a booking, often you must request a reservation or fill out an application with building management outlining the day and time you will require the elevator. We recommend trying to reserve your elevator far in advance before your actual moving date. Typically, we recommend two to four weeks.
Make sure your furniture is going to fit.
Sketch out a floor plan of the apartment and where you want everything to go. If you’re downsizing and you absolutely must keep some of your larger furniture pieces, be sure to measure each piece, the apartment door, and its fitting destination. Opt for easy-to-assemble/disassemble furniture if possible, to make it easier to get the item into the elevator and into your new home.
