The best resource for completing a move smoothly in New York is a qualified team of NYC movers. Working with a group of pros makes moving in NYC feel less daunting than it actually is.
For those who are alone in New York without family or a large group of friends to call upon for help, a moving company is more necessity than luxury when relocating to a new apartment. Though there are plenty of moving companies in the city, here are three things to look for in the right one for those attempting a move solo.
1. They offer packing services
One of the most difficult parts of a move has nothing to do with the act of moving itself. Packing is a messy and time consuming aspect of switching apartments, and it’s particularly difficult if you’re trying to manage it all on your own.
Instead of dedicating all of your free time for at least a week to packing up your entire apartment, enlist the help of a moving company who offers packing services in addition to moving. This will not only take the packing burden off of you, but will also give you piece of mind that your things have been packed properly and securely since it was done by professionals.
2. They will store your items short term
The idea of moving generally conjures up images of one frantic day, moving every worldly possession from one home to another in a matter of hours, but moving doesn’t have to be that way. If you’d prefer to take a more laid back approach, find a moving company that offers short term storage.
As a one-person operation, you can’t expect yourself to unpack everything in a day or even a week. By storing your items short term, you can focus on unpacking the necessities and then moving on to the non-vitals. This process will be especially easy if the company you choose also offers delivery of the items you store with them short term.
3. Their service is friendly and communicative
A little kindness goes a long way. Don’t force yourself to deal with poor customer service when there are plenty of friendly operations out there willing to help you more congenially. A good moving company knows that relocating is stressful enough without subjecting someone to rudeness when they reach out for assistance.
Plus, if a company is ambivalent about the way they treat their customers prior to a job, it may betray a sense of ambivalence toward the work they perform as well. You don’t want to trust your items with a company you aren’t confident will care for them as diligently as you would.
