If this is your first time moving from one apartment to the other, you can’t rely on personal experience to guide you. In order to keep you from some common misconceptions, we’ve put together this list of the three most common myths people have about moving apartments.
3 Myths About Moving Apartments
Moving apartments is no joke, yet rumors persist that it somehow requires less planning than house-to-house moves. Debunking these myths in advance will keep you from making easily avoidable mistakes.
Myth 1: It’s not as much work.
The reasoning behind this myth is that since apartments are smaller, they generally contain fewer possessions in need of being moved. Therefore, an apartment move is supposedly less work than a move from house to house.
The truth is this: it’s not so much “less” work as it is simply a different kind of hard work. Because apartments are smaller, it’s harder to maneuver, particularly when it comes to furniture, refrigerators, and other large items. Often with apartment buildings, there are often multiple sets of narrow stairways to deal with. There are busy and congested parking lots. Factors such as these mean apartment moving is just a different kind of hard work.
Myth 2: It doesn’t take as much time.
The same issues that make apartment moving just as much work as house moves have the same effect on the amount of time. While you might think they will be less time-consuming, they often wind up taking up just as much of your day as a house-to-house move would. Be sure to plan accordingly.
Myth 3: You won’t need much help.
Moving is often overwhelming. Even with the help of friends and family, you’ll sometimes feel as if the work will never get done.
The good news is that you don’t have to go it alone. Everybody needs a little help sometimes, and that’s just as true for people moving from apartment to apartment as it is those moving from house to house.
