List Backup Ideas
An elevator breakdown is an unexpected difficulty that can significantly affect your move.

Finally, if you are alone and have extra arms to help you, consider making a human chain on your stairs to move your personal belongings more easily and quickly.
Use the Stairs
The movers have the possibility of going through the stairs of your building to lower or raise your furniture. However, the fact that the movers have to take the stairs is an additional effort, depending on the floors, the volume of furniture to be transported, and its weight.
This is why it is better for your wallet that there are not many floors to climb to reach your new accommodation because the additional cost generated will not be the same. The mover will have to calculate the total cost of the additional means to respond to this change in the situation.
Above the 2nd floor, it is necessary to plan around 75 per additional floor, knowing that this amount can vary according to the professionals.
If the number of floors to climb is too high and the practicability of the stairs is not sufficient to transport the furniture efficiently, the movers will use a furniture lift to load or deliver your furniture.
In certain situations such as the transport of certain imposing objects such as a grand p, so for example, the furniture lift may prove essential for loading into your new home.
But sometimes, and even without having large pieces of furniture, renting a furniture lift can be a more efficient and economical solution than having the movers take the stairs.
