GTA Condo

The Greater Toronto Area and condominiums are synonymous with one another. If you live here, you’re always seeing new condos being built. Rising higher and higher it seems. In the concrete jungle, these impressive buildings are ever present and are home to a large part of the population.

There are a lot of elements to moving into or out of a condo that are unique and sometimes might pass over someones head. Thankfully Elite GTA Movers, the Best Movers in Vaughan have seen every possible situation arise and we’ve summed up some of the important things that you need to be aware when thinking of moving.

You and the Condo Management and Concierge

One of the earliest things off your checklist should be having an agreement with the condo management team concerning moving day. You have the right to reserve one of the elevators to be put “in service” specifically for your move. At this set time, no one except you and the movers have access to this elevator. This is done for the sake of time management so the movers aren’t waiting for a vacant elevator but also for the safety of everyone. The same rule applies if the condominium has a specific loading area where there is limited flow through traffic. You must reserve this spot as soon as possible!

Do you have a measuring tape?

You saw a great deal on your dream sofa! You snatched it up before it was gone. It’ll look great in your new place right?….But will it even make it through the door?

One of the most devastating situations that we encounter is when a client has overestimated their new living spaces. Especially with new built condos, the trend seems to be that the builders want to make as much separate units as they possibly can at the expense of square footage. Newer condos are most likely going to be smaller square feet than that of older apartments.

With that in mind, you should always measure your future living spaces when perusing your potential homes and also when planning out your furniture. There are tricks that we as your professional movers know to make the seemingly impossible, possible when it comes to putting a large item fit through the doors but then what if your couch will be spilling into the dining room or your cabinet will be blocking the closet door? Make a floor plan and be precise. These are crucial things to consider only with the help of Elite GTA Movers, the best Moving Boxes in North York.

Internet and Services

This one might seem obvious but we see too often how this slips ones mind until you’re stuck a week waiting on a technician to come and install your services. Another potential issue that is resolved by early booking. In these times, internet has become essential in most of our lives. Whether you need to be connected because of work or school, you have children that need their learning apps or teenagers that will disintegrate if they can’t keep up with the latest trends.

On very rare occasions, the building you’re moving too might not be set up to accommodate your preferred company’s tech services. This might be due to various reasons but it’s important to ask the seller or condo manager your preferred service provider might encounter any issues or if the technician will need any special access to otherwise restricted areas.

These are just a few things to keep in mind when planning a move to a condo. There are a plethora of other variables to tackle. Make a list. Be as organized as you can be. Be thorough. Have trust! In yourself and in us. We can guide you every step of the way so you haven’t forgotten anything. Moving Supplies in Toronto will guarantee you that you’re in the most capable hands.
