Same day moving guidelines for NYC


Moving is a stressful experience but moving on short notice can get things worse. You have a lot of things to get done, prepare your belongings, organize everything. Only now you do not have weeks or days to prepare your moving project. If you aren’t afforded that extra time, there are still ways you can make your move go smoothly and efficiently. So here are some same-day moving guidelines to help you. The most important thing is to make a plan, what will you take to your new home and provide some packing supplies, and go step by step.

Ready to go

The next step is to do the research about moving and storage Brooklyn has to offer. Depending on the season, movers could have a busy schedule so it’s important to book them as soon as possible. Declutter your home. It is very important to decide what will you move with you. Do not relocate unnecessary items that you do not need nor use anymore. In that way, you will save time and money, and free some space in your new home so you can maybe buy some new items. If you do not want to throw away you can store them for a while.

In case you have some fragile items, fine art items, or some musical instruments like the piano, don’t do in yourself. Contact your piano movers Brooklyn and let them take care of your precious item.

If you don’t want to hire a moving company and you are going to do-it-yourself, reserve the moving truck Brooklyn. When choosing a moving truck, the important thing is the size. Measure your belongings in order to choose and find a moving truck that suits your needs. It may be a good idea to pay for additional moving truck insurance in case of possible damage.

In the end, make sure you get the right supplies for packing. It is important to have a lot of packing supplies and make sure you pack them in the best possible way, so you can reuse those items.

Same day moving guidelines

Start by making a list of all the things that must get done for the move. This includes hiring the movers, packing your belongings, change the address, get the forms, organize important documents, setting up childcare, transferring your kids’ schools, etc. When moving on short notice it is important to make a timeline. To make things simpler, prioritize your tasks. Make a schedule so you can focus on one thing at a time without worrying when everything will get done.

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.
