How to move houseplants when relocating to Brooklyn  


A moving process can be really stressful in more than one way. There are many things that you need to take care of and deal with that require your attention and it is normal to feel overwhelmed at times. From choosing one of the quality moving companies Brooklyn has, to choosing the best moving date and packing all of your belongings, relocating can be quite challenging. Adults, elderlies, children, and pets can all feel the toll that it takes but it is important to remember that plants are also living organisms and that relocating can actually be even more stressful for them. We have thus prepared this short guide on how to move houseplants when relocating to Brooklyn.

Get acquainted with the state guidelines

One of the most important things when it comes to moving plants is knowing the law. Every country has its own regulations when it comes to this process. It is thus important to go through the regulations of the state of New York and make sure that you are following them. The United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) is one of the chief organizations regarding plants. The relocation of plants can lead to spreading diseases, pests, and insects. That is why doing your homework in this area is super important.

Know your plants

Plants are really sensitive beings and there is a reason why they are limited to certain areas. They cannot thrive under any conditions, but rather need specific ones to live. Since you likely have more than one plant in your home, you should research what each of them needs specifically. If you are moving to another climate, for instance, from Brooklyn to Florida, at least some of your plants will not be able to survive under the conditions in Florida.

Proper packing is crucial to move houseplants when relocating to Brooklyn

The final of the key things you need to do is to properly pack and transport your plants. Packing your belongings is the most sensitive part of a move and should be approached carefully. There are not many things worse than doing everything else superbly and then damaging or breaking your belongings because you did not pack them properly. That is why it is often a good idea to hire professionals to pack them for you. If you are worried about increasing your expenses, worry not. There are quality cheap movers NYC that you can hire to also pack your belongings.

When it comes to packing plants specifically, things are generally straightforward. When you move the plant, you need to move her with enough soil for it to sustain itself. The way to do that is to take the plant with the appropriate amount of soil and put it in a plastic bag. Then you put that bag into, ideally a plastic, container. It is best to not close them off completely due to a strong need for oxygen. However, if you have to, make sure that you leave some sort of space through which air can pass through.

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.
