Tips For Hassle-Free Moving In NYC

Moving In NYC

No matter if you’ve done it before, moving in NYC is always an ordeal. The narrow streets and cramped apartment buildings often make for a stressful experience. However, with the right preparation, moving in NYC, or moving in Brooklyn or Queens, can become quite possible if you follow these simple tips for hassle-free moving.


First, you should plan your move date. Some dates will be easier to move than others. Weekend moves are often the right choice. However, you often don’t get the choice of when you move, because your lease starts on a certain date. However, it is possible for you to arrange both move in and move out dates with your landlord. This could ensure you have an easier time of moving into your New York City or Brooklyn apartment, or moving out.


Next, you’ll want to take inventory of what you are planning to move. Moving is really a representation of all the things you have accumulated over the years and you don’t want to be surprised on the day of the move. For this reason, moving is a good time to evaluate what you need and what you may want to get rid of or donate. A good rule of thumb is that if it’s been years since you have used the item, you probably don’t need it. It’s important to keep in mind the parameters of where you are moving. Will all of your stuff fit in your new home? Make sure you have all the information so that the moving process can go quickly. After all, whether you live in Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens or any of the other five boroughs, this is coveted real estate so space may be slim.

Of course, you will need tips for the actual day of packing too. It’s possible for you to attempt the move yourself or with a friend, but keep in mind all the supplies you will need to get, including:


  • Packing tape
  • Boxes of a variety of sizes and shapes
  • Box cutters
  • Markers for labeling boxes
  • Black trash bags
  • Mattress bags
  • Cleaning supplies (soap, sponge, mop, water, broom, etc)
  • Cash for tipping people that help

However, doing it alone or with friends that are not professionals definitely makes the process much harder. This brings us to the most important tip of moving in New York City: hire a new york moving company. You will want to hire a local moving company. If you’re not new to New York City, you will understand that it is unlike anywhere else in the world. Subsequently, you will need a local moving company that understands the needs of those planning an apartment move in New York City. Divine Moving understands the New York area better than any other local moving company. With years of experience of moving in Queens, moving in Brooklyn and moving in Manhattan, Divine Moving is your best bet to make sure all your belongings are safe and accounted for during your next New York apartment move.
