Move Between Boroughs Seamlessly

As a New Yorker, you won’t have any trouble finding NYC movers willing to help out with your local move. However, it’s important to be discerning when selecting a company to assist you, particularly because moving in NYC is stressful enough without the possibility of being scammed by a less than reputable company.
Though a move to a new borough is technically local, it can feel like stepping into a different world if you’ve lived in your current neighborhood for an extended period of time. As you gear up for you move to another borough, take a look at these few tips to make sure you’re fully prepared.

Consider Space Changes

As you well know, not all boroughs are created equal. You’ll get a lot more bang for your buck in some areas than others, so whether you’re moving to a high rent, low square footage area or vice versa will have to affect the way you approach your move.
Compare the size of your new and old apartments. If you’re moving to a smaller space, try to downsize as you pack to save yourself space concerns after you’ve relocated. If you’re moving to a larger apartment, you don’t need to put so much stress on getting rid of things. In fact, it may even be a good time to invest in more furniture.

Get Acquainted with Neighborhood Stores

There are inevitably a hundred little things that pop up during the unpacking process which you have to run out to buy. Whether it’s nails, hangers, tools, or just organizational items, you can bet you’ll need to make a few supply runs throughout the course of your move, and that can take up precious little time when you are in an unfamiliar area.
Take a walk around your new neighborhood before relocating and get familiar with the stores in the area. Take note of which ones are closest, and what sorts of supplies they carry. This will help you out in a pinch when you’re unpacking, but will also serve to make you more comfortable long term.

Hire Local Movers

No one knows NYC quite like a local. Try to hire a New York native moving company, because they won’t just have the muscle to get you moved in, they’ll also have the local intel for the best routes and methods for moving to your particular borough.
Out of town movers may be able to carry your furniture in as effectively as a local company, but they won’t understand the personality of your neighborhood like locals will. What’s more, local companies tend to genuinely care about the customer experience, and in turn don’t overcharge for their services.

    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 …

    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…
