You probably don’t live in a cabin in the woods all on your own. That means that you have neighbours, possibly on all sides of your home. While moving is stressful and turns your life upside down, you don’t want to have the same impact on your neighbours. Here are some things that you can do to reduce the amount of stress you put on your neighbours as you are moving, courtesy of your Aurora movers.
Let Them Know What’s Going On
Strange bumps, lots of boxes being moved in and out, and possibly lots of cars on the front street—all of these things are going to concern your neighbours… unless, that is, you let them know what is going on. Tell them that you are planning on moving. Let them know what your moving schedule is, and what days you are going to have lots of people over helping. Ask them if there are any days on your schedule that might cause them issues, particularly if the street is clogged with a large moving truck. All of these things will help you not annoy your neighbours as you move out.
Pay Attention to Dates, Times and Days of the Week
You are off of work and probably getting ready to do some more moving preparations. It is very easy to forget that it is 10 p.m. on a work night, and you are outside trying to figure out (rather loudly) how to take the propane tank off of your grill. Put yourself in your neighbour’s shoes, and imagine how they’d react to the noise.
Consider this—you are trying to pull into your driveway after a hard day at work only to find the street blocked by a large moving truck and several cars that you don’t know blocking your driveway? You wouldn’t be very happy to find this, and neither would your neighbours.
If you need to block access or cause some congestion on the street, try to do it at times that are not going to be busy for your neighbours. Keep the loud activities to a minimum when people are going to bed for work or school. Finally, take into consideration any small children or babies in the neighbourhood. They can easily be upset or thrown off of their routine by a well-meaning but loud moving assistant.
Have a Goodbye Block Party
If you have spent any time in your current home, you have probably gotten to know the people who you live near. You might even be surprised to find out that they have formed a close attachment to you. Your move might be as upsetting to them as it is to you.
Have a goodbye party or gathering so that your neighbours can come over and send you off. It doesn’t need to be anything elaborate. It is a great way to get rid of all of those items in your fridge you won’t be able to eat before you move!
