How to Move an Apartment
uShip makes it easy as 1, 2, 3!
1 | Create Your Listing
List your apartment move with as much detail as you can. Be sure to include required dates or a time frame for your move, a list of large and small items to be moved, number of boxes, measurements of all large furniture, photographs, and the level of service required. There are a few different levels of apartment moving services depending on your needs. There’s self service, when you move your items on and off the truck and loading service, when you pack your items and the moving company loads and unloads the truck for you. Another option is white glove or full service apartment movers, when the movers pack and wrap your items in your apartment for you, and place it in your new home.
Make sure you have an itemized list of what you’re moving from your apartment. A detailed listing allows movers to place more accurate quotes on your move and reduces the chance for surprise costs on moving day.
2 | Choose the Best Apartment Moving Company
After your listing is created, you will start receiving moving quotes from reliable and safe moving companies. They’ll be competing to win your business, so you’ll get the best apartment moving rates. As these quotes come in, you can ask questions of the companies and talk to them directly. This will give you a better feel for the movers and their services.
Every apartment moving company on uShip has their own profile with their transportation history, safety records and customer rated feedback. We strongly encourage you to review the moving companies by using their profiles. Most apartment movers will have photos of their trucks on their profiles, and you can see completed shipments along with the review direct from the customer. By reviewing the profiles of the moving companies, talking to them through their quotes, and comparing prices, you can feel confident you’re choosing the best apartment moving company for you.
3 | Apartment Moving Day & Delivery
Once you have chosen your apartment movers, contact them directly with any additional details, concerns, or questions you may have. Let them know more about the pick up and delivery areas. Some moving trucks may have a hard time getting to certain neighborhoods and types of apartment buildings. Should you run into any issues, please let us know. We are here to help before, during and after your move.
