10 Things that will make your life easier when moving in NYC

There’s no doubt about it, New York City is the place to define your career or reinvent yourself. Of course, before you enjoy the best West Village has to offer or shopping in Union Square, you have to move to NYC. There are some things you can do now to make sure that your life easier after you move to the Big Apple.

1. Crete a Moving calendar

Time is fleeting during every aspect of your move. So put together a moving calendar to make sure you stay on target.

2. Stick to a System

You have things you want to keep, sell, throw in the trash and keep. Unfortunately, these things won’t sort themselves out. Devote at least a week to sorting through your belongings. You may even want to apply the one-year rule. If you haven’t used something in at least one year, you may want to donate or pitch it. The last thing you want to do is get to NYC and wonder why you ever packed that item you haven’t used in since you were in 5th grade.

3. Get help with Your Move

Friends and family are great movers, but unfortunately, they probably aren’t willing to travel to NYC unless you’re paying for their transportation. Even then they may get “lost” in SoHo or Times Square. Consider which professional NYC movers you want. Companies like U.Santini Moving and storage are:

  • Dependable
  • Affordable
  • Responsible
  • Trustworthy
  • Loyal to their clients
  • Offer good prices

Of course, you want to do your research before selecting a moving company. Make a list of professional moving companies and narrow down your options by:

  • Figuring out if the company adapts to your needs
  • If it’s highly professional
  • If it is reliable which means insured and licensed
  • If it is efficient (remember, you want the move done as fast as possible)

4. Plan to Move Pets Separately

Professional movers won’t move your pets. Thus, you have to figure out the best, most comfortable way to transport your pet. You may want to get things like pet seat covers, pet steps (to help them climb in and out of the car) and pet car barriers.

5. Make Sure Someone is there During Packing and Pick Up

You need to be at your old and new place during each phase of the packing and pick up. If you can’t be there, make sure to have a friend or family member there oversee the process and assist your NYC movers.

8. Check with Your Building Manager

If you are moving into a NYC apartment building ask about move-in/move-out times. Often, buildings restrict times when NYC movers can transport your belongings into your new place.

9. Keep in Mind the Extras

There are a lot of little things that can make an inexpensive move more expensive. For instance, if you’re moving into an elevator-less building, NYC movers charge extra to climb up those stairs.
