Moving tips for Millennials moving in Manhattan
We get it– You’re a millennial moving in Manhattan itching to dive into your move and set yourself up for success in your new place. No matter how many times you’ve moved before, relocating in NYC can be one hell of a headache. Contrary to what you might assume, moving in the city can be done smoothly, affordably and without losing your mind. Divine Moving and Storage has compiled a list of tips for Millennials to help take the stress out of moving in Manhattan.
Hire Moving Help
We totally understand the desire to do it yourself and save a couple dollars, but let’s be honest, furniture is heavy. Why risk hurting yourself or dropping your favorite lamp down a flight of stairs when Divine Moving and Storage makes NYC moving so easy and affordable?
Create a Packing List
If you’re moving for the first time, there’s a good chance you’ll forget something. There is nothing worse than coming to the end of moving day and finally parking your bum on the couch only to realize you left your television remote control on the counter in your old apartment. Checking things off a list as you go is a great way to avoid forgetting anything you’ll regret later.
Downsize Unwanted Items
Take into consideration the size of your new home. How much extra stuff have you accumulated since your last move? Should you downsize? Donating things or giving them away on craigslist is a great option if you have some time to work with. If you don’t, NYC Department of Sanitation is pretty cool about curb side pick-up and will take just about anything that isn’t metal or electronic. Remember that mattresses must be enclosed in a mattress bag and curb side electronic disposal is not permitted per NY laws. This means tables, chairs, sofas and other miscellaneous items are a yes; TVs, DVD players, and computers are a no.
Carefully Choose your Move-In Date
Remember, this is New York City! Weekend moves are definitely recommended but don’t always fall on the first of the month. Try reaching out to both your new and prior landlords to coordinate a weekend date that works for everyone. Typically, landlords are willing to give you the keys a couple days early to allow for a weekend move. This gives you time to get things in order before you strut back to work on Monday gloating about your new place.
Gather Moving Supplies in Advance
No one wants to be packing up their last box and realize they’ve run out of packing tape. Compile a list of necessary moving supplies in advance.
Some things you’ll need to purchase include:
-Boxes (Small, Medium and Large)
-Markers for Labeling Boxes
-Cleaning Supplies (Paper Towels, Glass cleaner, etc.)
-Cash for tipping your movers
