Everyone knows that although New York City is a city where opportunities are vast, moving there is no easy job. From the consistent traffic to understanding the grid system, there really are no other cities like it, but there also aren’t a lot of NYC moving companies like us at Divine Moving. We’ve made it our goal to make moving in NYC a breeze, whether it’s by providing custom storage spaces to keep some items in, or moving the contents from one apartment to another.
However, even though we can do a majority of the hard work, we can’t do it all which is why there are some tips we’ve compiled to help make moving from one location to another easier and less stressful.
NYC Moving Tips: The Things You Might Not Have Considered
Pick the professionals over your friends
Although it may seem like a good idea to enlist in the help of your friends because the labor will be cheaper, you’re really putting your stuff at risk and you’re extending the entire moving process. Moving with the help of your friends will not only cause a ton of distraction, but also fights and potential damages to your belongings.
When you invest in a professional NYC moving company, you’ll also get movers insurance which will help protect anything that may get a little dinged up in the process. So, spend the money. It’ll be far more worth it than looking at your dented bedframe that Rob and Tim couldn’t get up the stairs.
Buy all the boxes in the world
Okay, not literally, but you want to vary the boxes that you buy for packing. Don’t just get a bunch of big boxes because you think that’s what you need, instead get a few large ones, some medium ones and a few smaller ones. The small boxes will be perfect for packing books; medium ones are great for loading in smaller boxes or dishware, and the large ones you want to keep for lightweight items like bedding and clothes.
Choose the right company
Us, right here! Pick us! Honestly, there’s no other moving company out there that understands the city like we do. Our storage units are even custom built for the city. However, if you aren’t moving in NYC and we can’t assist you, then you’ll want to make sure you’re hiring a moving company that is licensed and properly insured. Also, take a look at their Yelp profile to see reviews from former customers. Word of mouth is always the most reliable source.
