5 Things to Keep in Mind When Moving Locally in Manhattan

There is nothing more exciting than local moving, especially in Manhattan. You know the city, the restaurants and the intertwining grid of the streets. You know which trains run where and when, and it’s very likely that you know where you want to live.

Your familiarity with the neighborhoods, established workplace and proximity to friends will help you choose the location of your new place. There are a few ways to make the move more enjoyable, so come along and find out!

  1. Hire Movers

This is the number one rule of moving in Manhattan. If you don’t hire NYC movers to carry you through your move, you will cry more than once. The bustling streets, pushy pedestrians and mass amounts of traffic will create more stress than you need to deal with.

Choose movers that know the ins and outs of Manhattan, that will get your things where they need to go in a timely manner and in one piece. Life instantly becomes easier this way!

  1. Know Your New Hood

Knowing the basic timeline of life in your new neighborhood will help you know when to move, which is just as important as where. What time your movers can park their truck alongside your new building to unload your things is imperative information to obtain before the move. Finding a parking spot in Manhattan isn’t easy, which is why hardly anyone owns a car here.

  1. Find Your New Grocery Spot

Pizza is fine for the first night, but to make your new place feel like home, you need groceries. Scope out the neighborhood and find your new grocery go-to. Manhattan is full of family owned and big business grocery stores. You’ll be able to find anything you need…at any time of night.

  1. Establish Your Commute

Nail down your new commute, both from your new place to work, and your old place to your new place. Chances are, you might move a few things yourself. Whether it be taxi, Uber or train… make it a point to find the best way to your new home. Manhattan is known for public transportation. Make the best of it!

  1. Follow Your Gut

Choosing a new apartment isn’t easy, especially with the price of rent in desirable Manhattan neighborhoods. When it comes to switching your living space, go with your gut. Don’t rush into anything, and don’t sign that lease until you’re sure you’re in the right location for you!

    We couldn’t be happier with our recent move with Simply Moving.

    Their prices were affordable, in fact, a lot cheaper than the quotes we got from the other movers we had called in the NYC area.

    On the day of the move, the crew arrived early, and were fast, diligent, organized, and professional. All our furniture …

    I had a truly 5 star experience – they were on time, gave me a call an hour before arriving, packed everything neatly and efficiently and placed all items in my new place perfectly. Did the job as promised!

    “Simply Moving- It was our pleasure to move you, the crew said you were well prepared and did a good job with the destination layout and instructions”

    Great group of MOVERS.

    The movers arrived 15 minutes ahead of schedule, when it was cold and rainy. I wasn’t able to pack everything since my mother had passed away a few days before my move. They made me feel safe and helped pack things gently and quickly. They were patient and very positive and compassionate. They were too notch. Highly recommend their services.

    Dear Stefan, I want to tell the public how wonderful your company has treated me. Has stored my possessions and has delivered everything with the utmost of care. Thank you will all my heart for the service you gave me and the protection you provided for all my things these years. If I had to rate your company I would give you a ten…!

    P.S. when I got the delivery we thought there was an antique shelf missing but I found that behind some boxes after the truck left…So I have it all and am filled with joy…
