Apartment Moving

Apartment Moving – Small Spaces, Big Work

Some people think that moving an apartment is easy because it involves fewer items than a home. This is very rarely the case because there are many other factors that come into play. The location of the apartment and the configuration of the complex can turn a simple move into a full-day project before you know it. Let's take a look at the reality of apartment moving.

Stairs

Most apartment moves involve stairs, which add a tremendous amount of time to the move. Every flight of stairs adds about an hour to the ordeal, depending on how high they are and how they are shaped. Even for apartments on the bottom floor, stairs can be a problem because they block areas of the walkway. Then the movers have to work their way around them. In the scorching heat of Oklahoma summers, stairs can easily drain the life out of the crew.

Bends

If the stairs aren't a problem in an apartment, the bends are. Most apartments are designed to maximize space, so they have a lot of intricate hallways, bedroom shapes, and closets. As one of the oldest moving companies Oklahoma City has to offer, we have seen countless apartment complexes go up that are nearly impossible to get furniture in and out of. Sometimes this means we have to break furniture down to get it out of the house, which adds unexpected time to the move. All of these little details can make apartment moving a bit of a challenge.

Parking Lots

It's easy to get a moving truck into a person's driveway, but it is a lot harder to get it in an apartment complex parking lot. There is almost never a row of parking spots that are close to the stairs or door, which means we have to find somewhere in the distance to park our massive truck. If it's a long way away, we have to carry boxes and furniture all the way down to it. This, much like the stairs, can get exhausting very quickly.

Don't underestimate the complexity of apartment moving in Oklahoma City. We have gone through hundreds of these moves before, and we know just how complicated they can be. Nevertheless, the trained professionals at Able Moving Company have the skills needed to get the job done right the first time. You can count on our expertise to make your move as smooth as possible.

Testimonials

"...I decided to use Able Movers, Inc. because they are a local company and are family owned. I have used them three times, twice for some in-house moving. I am very satisfied with their service. They were there on time and there were no scratches on anything. The last time I used them they definitely helped make my move a smooth one."

"... The guys at Able moving were very courteous.   It was a very hot day for our move, but these guys really seemed to enjoy what they were doing. We sure don't plan on moving again in the near future, but if we do, we'll call the guys at Able Moving. If anyone asks for our recommendation, we'll gladly recommend the guys at Able Moving... "

"... really liked getting a real quote before our move.   Other moving companies we've used before added charges that weren't in our original agreement.   Then they wouldn't finish moving our furniture until we paid the extra.   Thank you Able Moving Company.   It's refreshing to find a moving company that's actually honest."
