Movers in Denver Explain How to Move Without Annoying the Neighbors

September 13, 2017

Moving can be stressful and hectic—not just for you, but for your neighbors, too. As you move out of your current home and into a new one, it’s important to keep your neighbors in mind so you don’t disturb them during your transition. Here are some tips to keep your neighbors happy provided by the best movers in Denver:

Move during work hours

Stay out of your neighbors’ way by planning your move during normal work hours, which are on weekdays between 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. If you move when most of your neighbors are at work, you won’t have to worry about making too much noise or disturbing them with all of the commotion.

Plan for parking

Do you have a driveway for the moving truck to park in? If not, then you will need to plan where the truck will go in advance. Neighbors may get annoyed if you block half of the street with a large moving truck or if you take one of the few parking spots that are available in front of your building. If this is the only option, then try to notify your neighbors ahead of time so they know that you will need a spot or will be parked in the street on moving day.

Say hello and goodbye

Before you leave your current home, try to find time to say goodbye to the neighbors that you’ve connected with over the years. Even if you don’t have a close relationship with your neighbors, it’s still polite to say goodbye to the ones that you have been friendly with. Remember, moving day will be fairly hectic, so you should probably get your goodbyes out of the way a few days in advance.

You should also make an effort to introduce yourself to your neighbors at your new house. This doesn’t mean you have to go up and down the street knocking on people’s doors, but you should stop by your next-door neighbors’ houses to say hello. Learn how to greet new neighbors here.

Clean up

Neighbors don’t like when someone in the neighborhood makes a mess because it makes the entire community look bad. Before you leave your home for good, make sure that the yard looks tidy and your trash has been taken to the curb. Do the same at your new home and don’t leave any moving materials such as boxes, bubble wrap, or moving blankets scattered outside.  

Control your pets

The front door to your home may be left open as movers come in and out, so you will need to make sure your pets don’t run outside. Loose pets could run into the neighbors’ yards or even worse, the streets, which is an annoyance to everyone in the neighborhood.
