Building Number


Three Tips

Looking for one unit number in a five-hundred-unit complex can be a time-consuming task, sans a building number. Even the most patient of us can get frustrated when we've been searching for what feels like forever and still can't find what we're looking for. If you're ever in this situation, don't give up! Check out these three tips that will help you locate that pesky unit number in no time:

Check the Posted Guide

The directory is the first place you should look when trying to find a unit number. Most complexes have a guide posted near the entrance that lists all of the businesses and residents in the building. If there is no physical directory, there may be an online version that you can access. Once you find the manual, locate the unit number you're looking for, and voila! You found the building number saving you scores of minutes, especially during a delivery drop.

Ask the Front Desk

If there is no directory or you're still having trouble finding a suitable unit, your next best bet is to ask the front desk/Leasing office. The staff at the front desk are typically very knowledgeable about the complex and can point you in the right direction. They may even be able to give you specific instructions on how to get to the unit you're looking for.

Search for Signs

Another great way to find a specific unit number is to search for signs. Many businesses and residents post signs near their doors with their unit numbers listed prominently. So, if you're having trouble finding a suitable unit, keep your eyes peeled for signs that can help guide you in the right direction. With these three tips in mind, finding a unit number in a complex should be a breeze! Just remember to be patient and to ask for help if you're having trouble.


Rapid Access

The importance of a building number is often overlooked. We all know our addresses, but do we understand the importance of the building number? Let's take a closer look. The municipality usually assigns the building number. This means that it is the official address of the property. It is used for things like tax purposes and emergency services. So, if you ever have one you will need to give them your building number so they can find you.

Another important reason for having a building number is to get your mail and groceries delivered to the right place. If you move, you need to change your address with the post office, so your mail gets forwarded to your new home.
