Smooth Moving into the Metropolis
Moving to a city has an abundance of perks but it also has its share of drawbacks. Listed below are some of the challenges you must be aware of to gracefully handle an urban move.
Parking in the city is limited. Be sure to check with the local authority where you can park your car and the moving van on moving day. Usually, there are exceptions for people moving in but it is best to verify first to avoid fines.
As much as possible, avoid rush hours when scheduling a move. The last thing you want is to get stuck in traffic on moving day. Consider moving in daytime during weekends so as to avoid inconvenience to neighbors.
If you are moving in a condominium unit located at a sky-high building, you may reserve the elevator but be sure to fetch the key ahead of time. Inform the manager about the duration of the move to show high regard for the favor.
Take responsibility for the safety of the neighborhood. Install smoke alarms. Buy fire extinguisher to keep in the kitchen.
It may take awhile to get used to the hustles and bustles of the city. So, buy a pair of earplugs to get a good night's sleep.
