Move In Etiquette: Make A Good Impression When Moving Into A Luxury Apartment

First impressions are lasting impressions, especially when you are first moving into a new building. Making friends with the leasing office and with your new neighbors can be important. Neighbors can watch out for one another and make the neighborhood secure and friendly. Being on good terms with the leasing office means that asking for a request can go more smoothly. The first chance that you will get to make a good first impression is when you are moving in. Here is some move in etiquette to stick to when you are moving into a luxury apartment. 

Move in the middle of the day

Though you may want to get started moving in the morning, it can be a bad idea to impede on others who may be heading out to work. During the morning time, families may be getting kids to school and people will be getting to work. Keep the hallways clear until after 9 am if you are moving in on a weekday. This rule is good for weekends too, as making noise too early will not be welcome by those who wish to sleep in. 

Use the dumbwaiter or stairs

No matter how few boxes you have, moving tends to be labor intensive. If possible, use the dumbwaiter inside of your new apartment building in order to move boxes and smaller furniture. If what you have to carry is medium and small boxes, take these up the stairs so that your many trips do not monopolize the use of the elevator. Be sure to have your moving company bring along the necessary items such as dolly's and wheeled carts so that moving many boxes and items at one time is easier and less strenuous. Take up all of the larger furniture in as few loads as possible, so that the elevator is free for all of the residents. 

Inform your neighbors and the apartment community

If your move in requires that you drill into the walls or use loud moving equipment, the courteous thing to do would be to warn your neighbors. Knock on the door of the neighbors who surround your apartment or slide a small note under their door. The note should detail the time you will be moving in and when you expect to have all of the loud work completed. This allows your nearby neighbors to plan for traffic in the hall or mutual noise. Informing the apartment community will also give them a heads up in case they get any noise complaints, so that they can explain to residents what is going on.
