Have you found yourself in a bind because you have to make a last-minute apartment move? Maybe your roommate suddenly moved out and you can’t afford rent on your own. Or perhaps something went wrong at your current apartment. Whatever the cause, last-minute apartment moves aren't as uncommon as you may think. In fact, at Ameritex, they're among our many apartment moving services.
Read on for some ideas to evacuate your apartment within a week or two, as well as how professional movers can help.
How To Manage a Last-Minute Apartment Move
1. Make sure all parties involved realize what’s going on.
If you have to make a last-minute apartment move, let your landlord know how quickly you have to be out. A little transparency can go a long way. You might find help and understanding in some unexpected places.
3. Don’t be too picky about packing.
When it comes to packing, use whatever supplies you have to, including garbage bags. We usually advise packing by room. But in a real crunch, you may have to throw belongings into boxes. And that’s okay, even though it’s not ideal. You’ll have time to sort them out once you get settled.
5. Use a cleaning crew.
When you’re in a rush, it’s easy to do a subpar job cleaning out your apartment. However, you should look at it like this: hiring a maid is always cheaper than losing your deposit or your sanity.
6. Consider hiring professional apartment movers.
One thing is for certain — the pros can get it done 10 times faster than you on your own. On top of that, you’ll have less risk of damage to your belongings and personal injury. Pro movers know the most efficient ways to move all of your things.
How Professional Movers Can Help
Although many people choose to move completely on their own, a rush move is not the time to attempt it. Here are a few of the jobs professional movers can handle to save you time:
In addition, some moving companies like Ameritex offer a full-service package. We strongly encourage you to check it out if you’re facing a last-minute move. Our crews can get you packed up and moved in as little as a day, and you won’t have to do a thing.
