Renting an Apartment? Take These Measurements On Your Apartment Tour

So, you’ve decided it’s time to move into your brand-new apartment for rent in Ft. Myers FL. You’re optimistic that nothing can stop you, you’ve paid the best movers and labelled all your stuff clearly, so nothing gets mixed up. It seems all perfect till half of the furniture won’t even go through the front door.

To avoid all these complications and more, here are 5 measurements to take when going on an apartment tour.

  1. 1. Measure the main entryways of your potential apartment

    Take the time to measure the dimensions of the apartment’s entryways. By doing this, you can plan ahead when it comes moving your furniture in.

  2. 2. Measure the interior rooms

    The interior rooms and access doors are next. As earlier done, measure the length, width and diagonal length of each door. Take certain building features, design and fittings into consideration. Compare the breadth and length of most of your bigger furniture to the dimensions you have written down to determine how easily they would fit in.

  3. 3. Measure the external stairway and hallway

    Apply the same measurement technique to the stairways and hallways of your apartment building. These can be vital to the planning your move. Make sure your ready to move your furniture through a long hallway or up a flight of stairs.

  4. 4. Elevators

    If you have a service elevator in your apartment building, you’re in luck. Most service elevators are usually bigger than regular elevators and have wider doors that can fit bigger furniture. Measure height, width and diagonal dimensions and note the weight limit of the service elevator before using it to move bulk items up to your floor.
