Moving in Korea

Here, ladies and gentlemen, is our first video in our new apartment! Tada! You can’t see all of it in this video, but we’ve also posted a tour of our new apartment in Seoul, so check that out!

Anyhow, for those of you who follow us on social media you might have read how our move was rather unpleasant. We didn’t make it seem that way in this video because what happened to us was rather particular, and not something I’d want to say for a general video about moving in Korea. I’ll share it here though as part of story telling time. Gather round, children, and let us tell you a story!

For starters, our moving people were pretty screwed. Basically, our old apartment had a weird rule: they couldn’t bring their big moving truck down into the garage by the elevator. What that meant then is that once they moved our stuff downstairs to the basement floor from the elevator, they had to pack that stuff into a smaller truck, then drive that truck out to the bigger truck, and transfer it from the small truck to the big truck. They couldn’t bring it from the elevator to the big truck because the two were so far apart. Altogether, then, they basically almost had to double their packing time, with that whole unnecessary smaller truck.

On top of that, we didn’t emphasize strongly enough how difficult it was to get our couch out of our apartment. Really, we have no idea how people got it into our apartment to begin with, but getting it out took probably an extra 45 minutes of severe frustration. They tried almost every angle. It was too tall for the door, too wide for it as well. Basically they just had to take off the door and take off the shelves as well, and then take out the couch, and then put the door and shelves back on. Once they got it on we cheered for them, and sang Psy’s “Champion” for them as well.

Our new apartment had a few issues, too. We have fancy keys to open our front door. The keys are just swipe cards, like what you use to get on the subways in Korea. Great! We got three of them. Great! Only one of them worked. Not great! We had to buy new keys, which seemed silly. We shouldn’t have to pay for broken keys, right? We couldn’t argue it because we were so tired, and we literally didn’t eat from 8AM until 5:30PM.

Then we found that our new place came with one small thing as an “option.” If you don’t know what an option is when it comes to apartments, it’s basically an appliance that comes with the place. Some apartments come with washing machines or fridges or air conditioners as options, for example. Our new place had no options but one: a dehumidifier. Great! We were excited about that. But the dehumidifier is broken. Ok, then, we told the realtor. If it’s broken we don’t want it. No, but we have to keep it, they said. Put it in storage. Keep the broken dehumidifier in our place until the end of our contract. Why? Hell if I know. Again, we were too tired to argue. We just went with it.

Here’s something else interesting that we learned about: we had to get an alien certificate form. I was very confused by it, because I wondered what my being an alien to Korea had anything to do with my moving. I have a legal visa, and I paid the deposit. What’s the issue? Well, it turns out that it’s the same for Korean people, supposedly. Soo Zee told us the same thing: when people move to a new place, they have to register in that district office, to show their moving history. Why? I’m not sure. It’s some government something or other. Why it needs to be printed up and brought back to the real estate agent I also don’t know. If anyone does know, I’d love to know.

And then, at the end of it, came the worst part: we had to pay the real estate agent as well. On top of our rent and deposit, the real estate agent gets a one time fee for finding the place for us. It’s 0.9% of our key deposit, plus the total rent we’re going to pay. It was awkward, because the realtor just said to us “ok, you pay me now. Here’s my bank account. Transfer the money,” to which we asked him for some kind of official receipt or something, rather than his bank info scribbled on a napkin. We didn’t have that the last time we moved. It’s probably because a friend helped us move, and they were a realtor, so we didn’t have to worry about the fee, but we didn’t even know about it. So when we heard about it this time we were a bit shocked.

So, all in all, the move was a bit frustrating, but it was a learning experience. And, really, we like our place a lot more than our previous place. A lot more. The area is a lot nicer, and the layout of our new place actually makes a lot more sense.

Anyhow, we’d love to hear what your moving experiences are like in your area. Do you have moving people that come in and pack everything up and move everything for you? Do you also have a tradition of not cleaning up your old place? We’d love to know in the comments below!

  1. In the US you can get services to pack and unpack. Usually it’s just them loading and unloading the truck. That outside life thing is awesome. Never saw that in the US. Probably because most people don’t live in very tall apartment buildings, big cities like New York you can actually get smaller sized couches or ones you just put together in the place or they have proper sized hallways and the elevators are big enough. Americans with Disabilities Act made newer construction with nice sized halls and doorways. Since the US is so large a long distance move would actual see people selling a lot of their larger items and just buying new ones for their new place. And purging of excess stuff. Weight and distance makes moving expensive. It costs a ridiculous amount to move furniture across the country, and the couch may not work in the new house and homes are so different. So most people move every other year in Korea and they are paying a thousand to a real estate person and a thousand for moving fees, with the truck, elevator, meals for each move. $700 for the crew to do all that labor and a long day is a bargain. In a twenty year period a person could have spent $20,000 on just fees related to moving. I have noticed that all your places really do not appear to have room for a proper table and chairs. You have had three bedrooms for the last places and at best they can fit a table with two chairs. Do people eat out mostly or not eat together at home? Or do people still use the foldaway traditional tables in the living room? Do the movers put the dishes into the dirty cupboards or do they clean those too? So nice of the movers to put down mats and clean the floors. Are they insured if they get hurt on the job or do they expect you to take care of it?

  2. Maple syrup Whisky ? Are you talking about Sortilège ? If so it is made in Quebec so good chance it is available in Ontario, otherwise visiting Quebec during a trip back to Canada couldn’t be so bad :P
    Much love <3 and hope you enjoy the new appartement !

    • No, we’re not talking about that. It’s called Tap 51, or something like that. Tap something. And it’s Rye Whisky that tastes like maple syrup :D

    I’ve moved cross country three times in the span of…4 years? 200 miles each time. Driven in my Chevy HHR packed to the brim because I was too poor for a moving service. Each time was a new experience. The first time was my favorite because I went a more scenic route so I was driving on scenic roads through the mountains and desert. It was like a road trip from the 1960’s. The second two times were more of time crunches so it was straight highways the whole way. After the last time I swore to never do it again! The moving, not the trip. Road trips here in the USA are actually quite enjoyable because all the different landscapes and weather and sights :) i have a mustang convertible now and I can’t wait to do a trip up to the Grand Canyon with it.

  4. I always leave the apartment SPOTLESS when I move because otherwise they can nail you for a cleaning fee.

  5. I lived in Texas and moved around allot. The first time I moved we hired what ended up being a shady delivery company that turned crappy. They put our stuff in the truck, drove to the new place, unpacked less than half our stuff and then demanded we pay them an extra $500 or they’d drive off with the rest of our stuff. Luckily my Uncle was there (otherwise it was me, my Mom and my two sisters) and he got them to reduce it to $200 and give us our stuff. After that we moved twice and did EVERYTHING OURSELVES.

    My family has moved a total of three times and I personally have moved 4 times. The first three times with my family was a hassle my mom and dad each drove a UHaul filled with the big things and most of the boxes and then with our minivan they took the minor stuff. I hated packing and unpacking stuff, in fact I’m pretty sure that even after 14 years from the last time we moved as a family I still have unpacked boxes in my room at their house. jajaja. When I moved to Mexico it was the easiest thing ever, just packed two luggages and a backpack for the important stuff like my camera and computer and that’s it. what I didn’t have with me I didn’t need and I was arriving at a fully furnished home so no worries, plus I sleep on a hammock here so no use for messy beds and covers.

  7. Hey there actually are movers in Toronto :P You can just google them!
    But since my family is Korean-Canadian, we’ve always hired Korean (or Asian) movers lol. They’re probably pricier than movers in Korea, but they do a fantastic job! And depending on the company, they can provide you with boxes a few days prior to your move so you don’t have to go hunting lol. They don’t do all the packing for you, but they do some of it. They mostly just move your stuff. We also hired professionals to take apart our big expensive couches and re-assemble them once we were moved into our new place! Some places have storage facilities as well in case you need to store your furniture and boxes during your move. They’re shady though because they’re in a huge storage garage with other customers’ stuff… when I was younger, the boxes with all my toys went missing in the storage and i got super sad :(

    Oh, my friend moved out of his condo in downtown Toronto the other week and he had to rent an elevator for a few hours as well. I don’t think all condos do this, but good thing about renting the elevator was that it literally only went between two floors (yours and the ground floor) and we were able to keep the elevator door open for as long as we needed on one floor!

    Anyway, U-haul here is probably better for small families and university students, but definitely worth it to hire movers for larger homes and families!

  8. We move a lot. I try to pack over a month leaving the most used, important things for last (like kitchen essentials and toiletries). Some of out furniture is on wheels, so it can be moved and cleaned easier. But it’s rough, and it usually involves a 500 dollar moving truck. Last move had a lot of casualties, stuff being lost and an uncle that broke and left family heirlooms. It was also good I bought insurance on the truck, because he was driving a little haphazardly and we got stranded with a flat in the middle of downtown San Francisco.If you ever rent a truck, I suggest that you buy the insurance that it comes with, that way if your truck breaks down for any reason (like a flat from Uncle Kenny driving over a curb), they will send help for free and you won’t be stranded with your things. I really want to consolidate our things to make everything neater and easy to move. The toughest is always books, fragile electronics, and a grouchy kitty (she gets scared and cries the whole time in transit). I like to go room by room and label everything, that way unpacking is quick. We also eat all the perishables and only bring canned food, dried goods, and tea/coffee in one box. Generally, when we do, I will set up the sleeping spaces and toiletries first, because after a major move, you just want to wash all the dust off of you and rest. We also usually order in or visit a fast food chain. I usually only set up stuff for tea and coffee when we are just moving in (for the first night). This move thankfully had two separate levels you could park at and unpack, so nothing had to be hauled up or down the stairs, I dealt with that once and it was a nightmare. We actually got a couch stuck in a small stair well during a past move. It was not too expensive this go around, gas and a truck, lunch and dinner, so maybe 750 dollars (most of it was gas).

  9. I only ever moved once, almost a year ago to go to university interstate. Finding a place with my friends (who lived closer to the city we were all moving to) was an ordeal, and I basically had to go by pictures for various reasons. Anyway, as I was moving from my parents place, I only had to pack stuff, but it was a LOT of stuff! I’d been buying things that I’d need for a new place for a while (manchester, a bar fridge, enough stuff to fill a kitchen, etc), and so we managed to fill the back of an SUV as well as a large caged trailer with stuff. THEN my dad and I drove SIXTEEN HOURS to the new city. We stopped off in various places along the way, and we had to stay the night at my friend’s parents’ place and finish the drive in the morning because the first day took us from 4:30 in the morning to 9 at night. Regardless, once we got there we had to get all of my stuff up two flights of stairs, because my room and living area was on the second floor of our unit, so that was fun. THEN, because I had saved my money to buy furniture, we drove two and a half hours either way to go to a different city again to buy IKEA furniture, because this city only has cheap shitty furniture stores (I really wanted hardwood furniture and didn’t want to pay $800 for a desk ;;). My dad stayed with me for a week to help me move in before he took the long drive back to his home, and now I dread having to move out because I have too much assembled furniture and too much stuff to get down two flights of stairs, as I would have to do it myself or hire help, which is expensive as hell because moving trucks are one thing, but a moving crew is expensive!

  10. It would never work in the US, we have too much stuff. We like good sized homes and fill every square inch of them. So you could imagine how much it would cost to move even a small family. My sister paid $11,000. for movers to fill one large truck in IL. and deliver it to her new home in TX. That was just the big stuff. She rented a uhaul and drove it down herself with the rest. She is considered middle income here.

  11. Well, I moved quite a lot. First from my hometown to the capital (5 hour drive) because of my college and at least 5 times from one apartment to another and every time we did it ourselves, I mean, my parents and I. Just packed the stuff into boxes and put them in the car and going few times from on place to the other, we moved. But I have to mention, we didn’t have any big stuff, only cloths, books, dishes and some other stuff.

  12. Simon’s experience of moving in Canada pretty much sounds the same for all of my family’s moves. Dumpster diving for used boxes, dragging friends and family over to help pack…though we were too broke most the time for U-hauls. We just shoved everything we could into what trucks or cars we were driving at the time and made a few trips. But the whole friends and family come together thing also got applied to other aspects. Living in Tornado Alley, we had a lot of “repair parties”. Everyone coming to fix the roofs after a tornado and at the end of it having a big dinner, loud music, and the adults drinking well into the night.

  13. I’ve only hired movers once and that was because I was moving back home to El Paso, TX from Seattle and there was no way I was making that drive back again with a U-Haul. Once was enough. The movers only moved the furniture out and then they shipped everything to El Paso and unloaded it there. No other perks. Since then I’ve moved many, many, many times much to the dismay of my friends and family :-P Thankfully the past four/five years I’ve stayed put. Whenever I move out of this place I’m hiring someone to clean it for me. This place has been lived in for 8+ years, I moved in with a friend who was already living here and she got engaged and moved out in January. So while I’m a clean person and place lived in that long needs professional cleaning. And I’m not doing it lol

    Sorry you guys had such a sheisty move this time around. I think you should really bring up the issue with the humidifier again and make them sign something that shows they know it was broken the day you moved in. Just in case. I believe I’m paranoid of landlords trying to screw you over later. I’m just glad that is all done for you guys and you are moved into your beautiful new apartment.

  14. I know how you guys feel. I’ve moved a few times (I guess 4 or 5 times) and I don’t remember a lot except the last time, which was about 6 months ago. My sister and I had like a week to move out once we found a new place and it was chaos (a week may sound long, but considering that it was totally out of the blue, we had nothing prepared whatsoever, we still went to school and we had no help, it wasn’t that long). In that week, we had to move all the furniture, all the small stuff and clean both places, oh, and let me add, except for the 2 movers (which was way too little for the amount of stuff we had), we had almost no help from anyone (great friends.. not). Oh, and the movers only moved the big furniture (beds, closets and stuff). We had to do all the rest (own clothes, dished, tiny furniture, other trinkets) on our own by driving up and down and up and down and up and down. Long story short: it sucked and I hope I don’t have to move for the next few years. The movers also used that brontosaurus thing, which was totally awesome. Here we have no traditions about moving.
    Last thing I want to say, the audio was so very confusing in this video, like Simon was sitting on the left, but his audio was predominantly on the right and Martina was sitting on the right, but her audio was on the left (I use earbuds, so I noticed :p). Very confusing

    All the best wishes in your new home
    Lots of love xx

  15. moving is such a pain in the ass
    in my country you rent a truck they and the basically just unload reload the rest you do it all
    about the cleaning no such traditon but when you have that much to do i dont think you would have the energy to clean the old apartmen before moving out

  16. I’ve had to move dozens of times over the years. Most of those moves were because my husband was career military. When you were talking about feeding your movers it reminded me of the two moves we made from Germany back to the states. The tradition then was to provide plenty of BEER along with the snacks and coffee to the packers. I don’t know if it’s still done that way but I have to tell you our household goods arrived in perfect condition both times.

  17. Basically it is the same in the States as in Canada. I have moved so many times, I cannot even count them. Each move always comes with problems and we have never been able to get away from them. I am so sorry about the unfortunate events that occurred during your move. At least after such a hectic day, you can now relax in your home and eat proper meals! I cannot wait for you guys to update again! ^^ Fighting!

  18. I moved a number of times in Canada, and my last move was from Canada to the USA. There’s always one friend who owns a truck and a couple friends who love helping people move for beer/takeout.
    I stopped begging for boxes as I got lots of soggy gross ones, and hit the hardware store (homedepot) and buy lots of boxes for fairly okay price.
    They actually have services that they drop off plastic folding crates (like you guys shown in the video) but it’s pretty expensive and you have to pack it all yourself.

    The move from Canada to US I rented a “pod” which a truck dropped off a big storage crate thing into my parking space. I’d pack it – it fit 1 bedroom apartment worth of stuff. You have to buy your own huge lock to keep it closed. Then when it was time to move, the company would pick up the pod and ship it for me. If you needed more space, you can rent multiple ones or a whole end of a big truck. This was cheaper than a uhaul for me considering gas/hotel/food/days driving vs shipping fees/airplane ticket.

  20. In my city (Aracaju-Brazil) was easy to move. My parents did not want to hire a moving company and asked for help to my mother’s brother-in-law to take the furniture for the new place (and city). I do not remember any rules of the condo of the time when we moved(this change has almost 15 years), but seeing the arrival of new residents today still not have any restrictions at all. It is the responsibility of the resident to their move and the only rule is to not block the avenue and hinder the entry and exit of cars on the building. However we suffer from a problem, the previous proprietor, very kind, taked all plucked, yes ALL and also the outlets of the apartment leaving wiring exposed, besides taking a lid private O.o and wiring lamps were also exposed because he wanted to take it this too. This problem is not a condo problem and do not represent the situation of the other residents here, but simply a man clueless and petty wanting to take things that should be in the apartment.
    In short: here everything was simpler and the new resident has autonomy in what they do, as the furniture will be transported and taken to the new apartment.

  21. Wish we had such a service here in the UK.
    We rented a transit van for a few days and made several trips back and forth between the old house and new house with the larger items.
    Some family members who had cars helped transfer smaller items and made trips to the local recycling/dump to drop off stuff we no longer needed or that was broken.

    As for cleaning, I don’t know whether this goes for everyone in the UK but in our family we have a tradition of going to the new house a few days before the move to give the house a thorough clean.
    As for the old house, in our case we had sold it to some property developers who were going to fully renovate it and put it on the rental market so we didn’t bother cleaning it when we left.

  22. So much monies!! qq… Are there services that you can just look up, see who is renting, call them… get the prices… say “Ill take it”, Pay said fees, move in, and LIVE? (I guess what Im asking is do you have to go through a Realtor?) But its such a nice apt. Enjoy!!! *Throws Confetti!!!! (hey, whos going to clean up all this confetti???? NOT MEEEE!)

  23. When I was a kid I moved houses three times and from what I remember we didn’t have much trouble.
    When it comes to moving, my family just gets together and helps with the move. Thankfully I didn’t move to or from outside my home town so it was easy. Basically we just packet our stuff, distribute it into everyone’s cars and moved. My dad’s company has big vans so we just borrowed one and loaded our furniture there.
    My family always chose the weekends to move.
    When it came to me going to Uni, the process was just the same, my parent’s, brother and sister helped me pack my stuff, we loaded it into one of my dad’s vans and off we went!
    I always clean the places before I leave. Generally we find it rude to arrive at a place and find that the old tenant left it unkept.
    I live in Portugal, so the distances between places are pretty small comparing to other countries.
    I’m moving in about a week and a half, but thankfully the place is fully furnished so I only have to move my clothes and knick knacks :)

  24. Wow, those moving companies sound like the best things ever! How they moved all of your stuff and you didn’t have to pack anything?! Amazing. I guess they can do that because people probably move a lot in Korea. I had a lot of experience moving in The States because my family were pretty much gypsies so all of the searching in dumpsters for cardboard boxes and all of the newspapers and weeks and weeks of packing everything.

  25. Wow that sounds like a rough move. The moving people are a blessing but the land lord and real estate person sound like people trying to milk out a cow. Way to make a move expensive. Why would they make you pay for broken keys & options? I’m feeling your frustration. :( I hope you can still enjoy your apartment nonetheless! (I love your stuffed animal friends)

  26. I’m actually moving to a different state in the next three weeks (Washington to California), and I feel like it’d be nice to have people help move my stuff but like some of the comments said below it is crazy expensive. I think it depends on whether you have a lot of stuff or not. I’d definitely hire movers if I had more stuff and more people, but it’s just lil old me moving out of my parents house…and I essentially cleaned out my entire room so I have hardly anything to move. So I’m down for my Uhaul and boxes. :D

  27. I found this completely fascinating, this is one of those things that is pretty hard to learn about from Korean dramas or sites about Korea. So thanks! The moving process here in the states is definitely really different, like Simon mentioned, it is much more “do it yourself” type of moving. I have only know a few people that hired someone to help them move and they were pretty well-off in the money department. A lot of my friends will just try to get someone they know with a truck or van and then start calling in favors. But I’m sure it is really different living in a big city or largely populated area, I would imagine that would make things a whole lot more difficult.
    Glad you guys are now moved in, though sorry to hear about all the moving troubles. That broken dehumidifier really is one of the strangest things I have heard. Doesn’t really seem like an “option” anymore if it doesn’t work and they didn’t give you an option to swap it out. But instead actually forced you to keep it. :/ Maybe they didn’t want you to get rid of it, so it is an “option” for whoever moves in after you. O_o

  28. I live in the U.S., and the moving process is the same as in Canada: rent truck, buy boxes, beg/bribe friends for help, load truck, drive to new home, unload truck, sleep with half your boxes still packed. You can hire moving services, but all they’ll do is load the truck for you. Pack your stuff for you? Are you kidding? Do it yourself! (Come to think of it, I think we’d be too afraid of getting robbed.)

    Wow, Korea really does business better! Korean companies seem to focus on making customers feel as comfortable as possible and giving them the most complete service possible. American companies focus on expending the least energy and resources possible, serving as many customers as they can as quickly as possible, and getting the most money they can out of each one. Customer comfort is just a means to an end. (And it’s usually the first thing to go when companies need to save money.)

  29. I have never moved, but my brother had to move several times when he was living in Mexico City. He didn’t hire movers while moving there, he used to pack all of his stuff and my sister i law’s stuff into a two door small hatchback and make several trips. They would rent furnished or partially furnished apartments so no furniture moving.

    He has now moved back into our native city and for that he had a bunch of big boxes shipped to our parent’s and took the rest of their stuff in their hatchback which they drove back home… it took them a weekend. It usually is a 20+ hour ride by bus to get to Mexico City from my town.

  32. You can get moving services in the USA, but it is MUCH more expensive. When my family moved it was a multi-day thing, 4 people in a huge house for 20+ years accumulate SO MUCH STUFF. Mt family spend a week or two filling portable storage containers that the rental company then put on a truck and moved to the new house for us to unload whenever.(an embarrassing number or containers. Seriously. We are all hoarders.)
    We also hired movers with a traditional big truck for all the furniture and big stuff. They disassembled and moved all the furniture and packed it into the truck like the most amazing tetris ever, then unloaded and re-assembled it all at the new house.
    But getting food/coffee for the guys responsible for transporting all of your possessions is standard here too. It is not written into any contract, but we ordered pizzas for lunch and subs for dinner.

    Then we spent the next two years unpacking. Well, I say two years, but we moved 5 years ago and we still have room in the basement that is the warehouse for all the stuff we have not unpacked yet.
    Like I said. Lots and lots of stuff.

  35. Notifying your authorties that you are/have moving/moved is pretty nomal in Norway. bc the goverment wants to know which county/state you are going to pay taxes through and later when its voting time that you live in the county/state you want to vote in etc. its for the paperwork. and also its for getting your regular doctor etc (gotta love health care systems=P)

    other than that its like canada where you steal/beg for cardboxes at your local groceriestore (hate that if you are moving at the start/end of schoolyear in a area with many students) beg/treathen/bribe your friends to help, and borrow/rent a moving car etc. So the korean moving style seems neat^^.

    we also have depositums for apartments but they are usually one or two/three months worth of rents. some apartments also may have a payment for janitorstuff( garbage, snowshoveling, general repairs in your apartments and common area) if you live in a building with many other apartments.

  38. Wow sounds like it was a lot of work! Your video made it look easy and kinda fun. Reading through your post made me see it was actually quite a challenge and frustrating at times. I do think that it’s pretty awesome that the movers did most of the work. It didn’t sound too expensive either. I’m glad you like your new place better even if you had to keep a broken dehumidifier.

  39. The moving service is almost like here in Brazil… but the Korean is cheaper! The company pack and unpack everything as well, which is worth the money, :D

    • I’m not sure how much filming we’ll do here, because we film most of the stuff in the studio. That’s where all the cameras, lights, and audio equipment is hiding. It’s too much to keep it all in an apartment :/
