The Unexpected Costs That Come With Moving Your NYC Based Office

Every move has unexpected costs pop up. Office moving, especially one based in one of the boroughs of New York City, is no exception to that rule. It might be that you’ve got to sink money into the new location, or simply the move itself.

Either way, you’re likely to come across something that wasn’t in your original budget. Putting a little extra cash aside in the event of an unplanned cost can save a lot of time and brainstorming, ensuring that you’re 100% ready when your office movers show up!


Building Permits

Remodeling or updating and office, should you choose to do so with your new space, will require quite a few permits. Think plumbing, electrical and general inspections. Even if you’re not planning a remodel, you must check in on what permits are needed for the building to be move in ready.

Remember, it will depend on the local jurisdiction, so the rules will change as the boroughs do. Delays will be avoided if you work closely with your moving company, and those you’re renting your space from.



You’ve been planning your move for weeks, and everything looks great. Unfortunately, this is because pretty much everything looks good on paper. You cannot accurately predict how everything will fit into your new space.

At some point during your move, you might find that things are not coming together the way you’d like. You might be digging into that extra cash for a new desk here and there, new chairs or even vending machines.

Speaking of furniture…


Office Furniture

Most rented office spaces are completely empty. It’s likely that your company has supplied whatever furniture currently adorns your office. In that case, you can break it down and your trusty professional office movers will take care of it.

If it belongs to the landlord or the owner of the building, then the purchase of new office furniture is all on you. Desks, chairs, break room seating, conference room supplies…make sure there is room in your budget for all of it.


Ample Parking

If your moving your business to a car heavy borough, like Staten Island, you’ll want a lot of space for your employees, both current and future, to park. There aren’t any subway links to Staten Island, and making sure that arriving and leaving for the day is easy for your employees is imperative.

Staten Island has amazing food and offers a free ferry, but alas, no subway links! Safe travel for your employees, as well as spacious, well lit parking may cost you a bit more depending on where you’re headed. It’s worth digging into your pockets for.

Luckily, there are no surprise costs when you use Simply Moving. Call us today for a consultation, and we’ll help get your business on the road.

    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!

    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…
