Guide to moving from Denver to Brooklyn


Moving from Denver to Brooklyn will be a big and exciting change. Following your dreams and making them a reality is worth it. Alternatively, if you’re moving to Brooklyn for the bustling city life you’re also on the right track. A new, fresh start in the Big Apple is exactly what you need. New York City is very appealing for its well-known name. And as soon as you start your life in Brooklyn, you’ll see what all the fuss is about. That’s why we at U.Santini moving and storage Brooklyn have assembled this guide for you. So let’s get on it then!

Make a plan for moving from Denver to Brooklyn

Even though this step seems quite obvious, it’s still important to accentuate it. Moving to Brooklyn is no easy feat. It’s far from impossible, of course, but you will need to have a well-thought-out plan and a good timeline set in motion for success. You won’t need to wear yourself down or burn yourself out, just have a good outlay of everything that you need to get done.

Moving from Denver to Brooklyn will be a big and exciting change.

A thing to keep in mind is that you mustn’t overwork yourself. You’ll have to continue working your daily job and, of course, there are all the daily chores that need to be taken care of. This is why we stress creating a plan so much. You need to know when you will do what in order to stay on track. It won’t be easy, but once the plan is set in motion nothing will be able to stop you!

Stay realistic

This goes for every part of the moving process. Be it your planning and timeline, or the expenses you’ll be facing during your move. It’s wise to have everything put down on paper and already calculated. We advise you to always have a bit more money on hand for any unexpected additional costs. Unexpected costs are, unfortunately, not rare. So staying prepared is key.

If you ever stray from your timeline, don’t beat yourself up about it. But take into consideration this as well. Leave some room for errors or bad days, so that you still have the time to finish everything. Our Brooklyn commercial movers are there to assist you every step of the way.

Budgeting and staying on top of your finances will prove to be very beneficial.

Budgeting is another great way to stay realistic in your spending. Set aside a certain amount of money for a certain service. And then the hard part – stick to it!

Research where in Brooklyn you want to live

Ideally, this is something you’ve already thought about. But if you haven’t, now is the right time. New York City is so big and flexible, there is always the perfect option for you. The best way to find the perfect apartment for yourself is by word of mouth. If you have some friends already living in Brooklyn, that’s a perfect place to start. If not, many online forums have a lot of opinions from many different kinds of people. It’s a good idea to contrast and compare.

Hiring a realtor is also a very good option. They know the city better than anyone and they can adjust to your specific wishes. You should find someone experienced who’s worked in the job for quite a while. Also, it’s good if you’re a good judge of character. Beware of scammers and unprofessional people!

Just be clear with yourself what it is you need in your neighborhood. Do you need family-friendly parks? Nightclubs near your home? Stores that work 24/7? We advise you to create a list of all of your wishes and go from there.

When is the right time for moving to Brooklyn?

With taxing things such as moving, sometimes it feels like it’s never the right time. But, if we flip this sentiment around, that means that any time is the right time! The only thing we would recommend is to move during spring or summer. The streets will be clear and there is bound to be less traffic. No rain or snow blocking the way.

If you’re in a hurry though, we understand. Who doesn’t want to go to Brooklyn as soon as possible? Even though moving during the wintertime can be a bit harder, it is still manageable. Just be sure to book your moving company and other services in advance, because winter is the holiday season. You need to know that you will get all the services you need.

If you ever run into the problem of not having enough space in your new apartment for all of your belongings, our storage Brooklyn has the best options for you. Be sure to contact us and we’ll come to a mutual agreement.

What to do on the day of the move?

So, now it’s time to finalize your move from Denver to Brooklyn! You’re packed and ready to leave. Everything is finished, right? This may be the case, but on the day of the move, you need to double-check everything.

What people tend to forget most often is canceling their subscriptions and utilities before moving. The last thing you need is a new tenant in your old apartment leeching off of you. Additionally, you will need to notify your bank and other facilities that your address has changed. This is very important for your future, so be sure not to forget! Here are a few more things people tend to forget when moving.

And finally, you will need a little bag with all your necessities in it. A toothbrush, a few outfits, a hairbrush, underwear, etc. Chances are you’ll be incredibly tired the day of the move and you won’t have any energy to unpack all of your belongings. Good thing you prepared this bag for the night and can go right to sleep.

Good luck moving from Denver to Brooklyn and enjoy your new start!

These guys are TRUE PROFESSIONALS! We've now moved with them twice (once in 2017 and then again this week) and we really can't say enough good things about them. Simi is incredibly easy to work with for scheduling and quotes, and the crews - John, Super Mario, and everyone - are just awesome. They're quick, incredibly careful and conscientious, and super friendly. If we ever move again (and god I hope we don't have to) we're absolutely calling them.
