Top Tips for Apartment and Condo Moves

Are you moving into a new apartment or condo? Check out what our Ottawa pro movers recommend to make sure things go as smooth as possible on moving day!



You’ll want to make sure everything will fit through your new condo’s halls and into the elevator. Break out the tape measure and take careful measurements of your furniture. If possible, measure your new home’s halls and doorways. Some pieces may need to be disassembled, but we’re here to help with that, too!


Reserve the Elevator

You might have to book an elevator depending on your building. Contact the building supervisor and let them know you’re going to need elevator access on your moving day. Your building might have a larger service elevator that you can use, too.


Book Your Movers Ahead of Time

No one wants a move to last longer than it has to. Book the pro movers at TLC Moving & Storage ahead of time to make sure you’re ready to go when the day comes. Give us a heads-up about your moving plan, and we’ll make sure we’re ready to go on moving day.


Find a
Place to Park

If you’ve got a big moving truck, chances are you’ll want to keep it close to the entrance to make things as easy as possible. But you don’t want to block anyone in or inconvenience your new neighbours! Ask the building supervisors where you can park to make sure you’re out of the way, but not too far to cause any headaches.


the Day Off

Take a day off at work if you can. It might be tempting to move at the end of the day, but you’re just guaranteeing you’ll annoy the neighbours with the space moving takes and the noise it can make—even when you’re careful! Book the day off work and get the move done while everyone is out of their apartment.


Keep It Simple,
Trust the Pros

As tempting as it can be to ask friends to help, don’t! Let them lend a hand unpacking boxes once they’ve been moved into your new place. Let the pros handle the heavy lifting: we’ve got the experience and knowledge needed to make it a quick and easy process.
