5 Things You Should Know About Moving Your Office From One Borough To Another

When you’re moving your NYC based office from one borough to another within the city, you might feel like you’ve moved out of state. Even though they’re all located within the boundaries that we call New York City, they differ substantially.

Office moving is never an easy project, and moving between boroughs can make it a bit more hectic. Before you pack up and move, there are a few things you should consider!


  1. It Will Feel Like A Cross Country Trip

A move between boroughs might not be far apart in miles, but it will feel like thousands. For example, you might be moving your office and employees from Manhattan to the Bronx, but halfway through the move, you’ll feel like you’re headed to Napa, CA instead. The process can be a long one, depending on the time of day and the amount of traffic you hit.

The Bronx is riddled with wonderful subway access, which would be fantastic for your employees, but you’re not going to load all of your office supplies up and haul them to the train. You have to learn the traffic patterns, plan ahead, and take the professional office movers option.


  1.  Your Employees Might Not Be Excited

Asking your employees to work in another borough might cause a minor uproar. They won’t be angry about moving their things, and they’ll probably be more than happy to help. However, employees who live and work in Brooklyn might not be thrilled to move to a denser borough like Manhattan.

Get them amped up by discussing the new location, possible cultural experience and delicious places to eat!


  1. You Might Experience Culture Shock

Seems ridiculous, being in the same city and all, but you can absolutely get hit with a bit of culture shock when moving from one borough to another. Every borough is diverse, but Queens takes the cake when it comes to the melting pot.

The food in Queens is delicious, and you’ll find a variety of languages spoken to be seemingly endless. It’s a delight to live and work in Queens, but it’s a lot different in many ways than Manhattan.


  1. You Might Be Paying for Travel

This isn’t the case for every office move, but many companies choose to reimburse their employees for travel. Whether it’s cab or Uber fare, or a metro pass, paying for your employees to make it into work at the new location is never a bad idea. You’ll get a great company rep, and if you have to move your office again, there will be fewer hesitant team members.  


  1. You Should Hire Professionals

Moving between boroughs may not seem like it requires a professional team of office movers, but trust us when we say, it does. Getting the job done quickly and efficiently will take a bunch of added pressure off of you and your team, as you are already dealing with big changes.

    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.
