What to Expect When Moving From New York City to Detroit

What to Expect When Moving From New York City to Detroit

Interstate moving, especially between cities, can be pretty overwhelming for anyone making such a big change. Doing your research and knowing what to expect can bring you peace of mind, and make the move easier on you mentally. Big city life is a ton of fun, but it does vary from city to city.

It’s important to make the best of long distance moving, by soaking up every single step of the process. It’s something that people only do once in a lifetime, so try to appreciate it instead of fretting. Once you’re settled, you’ll be glad you did!


The Weather is Colder

If you can even believe it, winters are harder in Detroit than they are in New York. Detroit sits incredibly close to the Canadian border, which is sometimes referred to as the Great White North. You guessed it…Detroit holds the possibility of getting a ton of snow every single winter.

While the early months of the year can be bitter, there is no shortage of indoor and outdoor activities to make the best of it. From snowboarding to museums, there is plenty to do for everyone, making winter boredom obsolete. Just be sure to pack that winter coat. You’ll need it.


The Sense Of Community is Greater

Detroit has an amazing sense of community. It’s not to say that New Yorkers can’t rally together, they often do, but Detroit has been through the ringer as a city. From prosperity to poverty, Detroit has seen it all.

As the city successfully digs it way out of recession, there are plenty of jobs and opportunity returning to the area. Once you settle in, you’ll easily fall into that comradery. It’s hard not to, and having  pride in your hometown is a fantastic way to live.


The Public Transportation Isn’t as Great

Don’t get us wrong, the public transportation system in Detroit is great, but it doesn’t compare to the easy access all over New York. You can Uber, take a train or a cab, but you’ll find each of these sources to be more plentiful in the City that Never Sleeps. It’s not to say that you can’t get where you’re going on time, just be sure to plan for it!

    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!

    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…
