So, you’re moving to Manhattan. You found a place in the center of it all. The whole world is happening right outside your window. Now you need to hire movers and figure out what you can move in with and what to get rid of (or put into storage). Manhattan is home to a lot of apartments, condos, brownstone homes, and townhouses. But there are some things that won’t fit well in either of those. Here are a list of some things you can (and can’t) move with you to Manhattan:
- You CAN’T move in the stuff inside your garage: Let’s say for a moment that you live in a house with a garage (attached or not…doesn’t matter). Other than a car, what would you find in an average garage? Well, you can store a lot of tools. Then you have stuff like lawn mowers and weed wackers. There’s a good chance that wherever you move to in Manhattan, you won’t need any of those things. So if you happen to have some tools that you can’t seem to let go, then Simply Moving will help you store it away.
- You CAN move your pet: Yes, Fido can come with you. But this one will take a bit of work. If you have a pet, you need to find a place that will accept pets. One thing to keep in mind is when you pay the rent each month, you may have to pay an extra pet fee. Some landlords have a fee that is structured to charge you depending on the size of your pet. So if you have a Siberian Husky, you’re probably going to pay more than your next door neighbor who has a Shih Tzu.
- You MIGHT move your car: This is a toss up. However, not too many people will drive a car in Manhattan and will instead resort to public transportation options. If you’re ok with the idea of paying a steep monthly fee for parking, you can move your car. If you’re one of the crazy brave that can navigate the streets of Manhattan, more power to you. If you want to ditch your car, you can sell it or give it away to someone you trust.
- You CAN store what you can’t move in: If you have stuff that is too large for your new place or if you just want to save space, then rely on Simply Moving to help you with your storage needs. While we can handle the moving thing quite well, we can help you store away what you don’t need in our safe and secure storage facility. We protect your valuables from fires, floods, thefts, and everything in between.
Moving to Manhattan is an exciting experience. But you have to make a note of what will fit in your new place and what needs to be stored away. If you have a place in Manhattan set in stone, now is a good time to put together your packing list and plan ahead on what you might need to store away.
