If you live in an apartment or condo, you likely already know how thin the walls and ceilings can be. You may be able to hear when your neighbors are moving or talking. And unfortunately, a move can be even more disruptive. While there is no way to control all of the noise, there are a few things you can do to be a considerate neighbor and lessen the impact it has on your neighbors. Here are three tips that will help you be considerate to your neighbors when you are moving.
Move During Normal Awake Hours
It may be tempting to load up your moving truck in the early evening or late at night when the sun is going down and it is cool out. However, this can be disturbing to your neighbors who may be trying to relax and sleep. In fact, many apartments and condo buildings have quiet hours and those quiet hours also apply to move in and move outs.
Limit the Number of People Who Help
When you are moving, it may be enticing to accept help from any and everyone who offers. However, it can get quickly crowded in a small space and be disruptive to your neighbors. Instead, limit the number of people who you have over to help you pack and move. This will help you focus on the task at hand and keep noise to a minimum for your neighbors.
Park Where Other Tenants Aren't Blocked In
After getting your moving truck, you will likely want to park it as close to your apartment as possible. However you may find that you block some tenants in. Some people think that they will simply move the moving truck if the tenants ask or need to get out. But this can be a burden to other tenants who may already be running behind. Instead, ask your apartment or condo building where you can park the moving truck so you are close by without being a bother to other tenants parked in the area.
