Park Slope relocation 101


Leaving one home to move to a new one is always a special occasion. Often, feelings are mixed, to say the least. Leaving that home may in itself be quite a hard thing to do especially if this is your first time moving and if you are really connected with it. Then there is the opposite side – You are moving to a new home and thus beginning a whole new chapter in your life, which is, usually, a reason to be happy and excited. And finally, in the middle of all that is the whole “find some good Park Slope storage, hire movers, pack your belongings” part. Moving is quite a complex process and you would be wrong to take it as anything less than that. That is why, in order to help you with your Park Slope relocation process, we have created this short guide on its key elements.

For a stress-free Park Slope relocation, you will need professionals

Okay, perhaps not completely stress-free relocation, but as close to that as possible. Hiring some quality Park Slope movers is something that you should never shut down as an option. Moving companies exist for a reason – they are there to help you move to your new home. Sometimes people disregard their importance, but having professionals handle your business is never a bad idea because of one simple reason – they are professionals. However, in order to use their services to their fullest extent, you must first know exactly what you need from them. In order to do this, you must first plan the move properly which leads us to our next point. 

Park Slope relocation can be stress-free if you plan it properly
Relocation in New York requires careful planning

Plan your move

Planning your move properly is crucial. That is literally the most important thing when it comes to moving to a new home. So, the moment you decide that a Park Slope relocation is something that you want to do, you need to begin with your planning and preparations. One of the key things here is that you should choose a moving date as soon as possible. This is crucial because you will be planning the rest of your move around this date. When you contact movers and start negotiating about their services, you must know which date is best for you. Well, either a date or a couple of dates.

Before calling the movers, know which dates are the best for you

Otherwise, you can make things quite complicated for yourself if you let them choose a date for you without knowing what you need specifically need. Since Part Slope is in Brooklyn, which is itself in New York, one of the largest and busiest cities in the world, being specific can be of key importance. Once you have established your preferred moving date, it is time to plan the packing process. You should best plan to do the packing in phases. And since you will be moving through NYC, there is one more thing that you must not forget. Packing your essentials box(es) is something that you may end up needing a lot. Why? Well, moving in NYC can sometimes last longer than you may think, so you should be ready for it.

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.
