Ensure your moving company has access to your home

Moving Home - moving company has access to houseWhen you are planning a house move you need to make sure that the moving company can obtain easy access to your home. There are a number of factors that need to be taken into consideration with regard to this issue and in some cases it is much more difficult than in others.

Do you live in an apartment? If so, what is the parking like? Your moving company will need to park its truck and this could be a problem if parking is limited; however, your professional movers will be used to such issues and will be able to help you to find a solution. If you live in an apartment you also need to make it clear whether there is an elevator, as this could cause a problem when bringing items out.

If you are living in a house then it could be that you are lucky enough to have a large driveway and access to the house is not going to be a problem; however, this is not always the case. It could be that a truck outside your house, even just for a few hours, is going to cause a problem for your neighbors. It is a good idea to keep your neighbors informed about what is happening and when. Take the time to knock on their door and ask whether they would help out by leaving enough space on the day.

Don’t forget that you also need to make sure there is access to your new home when you get there!
