It is always best to plan out moving early in advance of your moving day and make all the necessary arrangements to prevent any unexpected issues.
Here are some tips that might help you in minimizing trouble on your moving day in Vancouver, BC.
1. Book the elevator
If you live in an apartment building, you will need to book the elevator beforehand. Put a notice on the elevator two days before your moving day that notifies other residents about your moving plans. It is always nice to notify neighbors about the potential hassle you might be causing during your move. Mention the time of moving as well, so that you can use the elevator exclusively during the mentioned time.
2. Find a good parking spot
Some buildings have special openings to the building that are used for moving. You can easily park the moving vehicle there and get all your belongings loaded.
The local council can be of great help here if you want to reserve an exclusive parking spot nearby. Sometimes the councilmen are kind enough to place “No Parking” signs near the buildings, which would greatly assist you in moving. If the council or local police cannot be of any assistance, then make sure you find a good parking spot beforehand in order to avoid road blockage caused by your vehicle.
This rule of finding the parking spot also applies to when you reach your new residence. Make sure you know the closest parking spots to your residence so that unloading of your items can be done easily.
3. Additional things you might need
It is always good to have some helpful items handy, such as ladders and tool boxes. These items are quite essential for packing and moving and will help in making your move smooth.
