Moving to NYC

Are you planning a move to New York City? Moving to NYC is a significant undertaking, and it’s crucial to be well-prepared to ensure a smooth and stress-free experience. As a trusted Brooklyn-based moving company with years of experience helping homeowners like you relocate to the Big Apple, Poseidon Moving is here to provide you with valuable insights and tips to make your move as seamless as possible.

Moving to NYC Checklist

Moving to NYC can be an exciting adventure, but it also requires careful planning. Our team at Poseidon Moving and Storage has guided numerous homeowners through the process of moving to NYC, and we’ve gained valuable knowledge along the way. From best packing practices to effective planning, these tips will help you have a positive and well-organized experience when relocating to NYC. Once you’re comfortably settled into your new home in this dynamic city, you’ll be glad you followed this guide!

Set Your Moving Date

The first step in planning your move to NYC is establishing a clear moving date. Your moving date serves as a guiding point for all the subsequent steps in your relocation process. In the context of moving to a city like New York, weekdays are generally more convenient for planning a move. However, we understand that weekdays might not always align with your schedule. If that’s the case, consider hiring a team of NYC after-hours movers like Poseidon Moving and Storage. We’re here to work around your schedule, ensuring a hassle-free move whenever you need it.

Once your moving date is set, it’s time to get hands-on with preparations.

Prepare Inventory List

Moving has a way of revealing the extent of your belongings. This is the perfect opportunity to take inventory! Particularly for long-distance moves to NYC, it’s crucial to declutter and get rid of items you no longer need or use. Consider donating or discarding items you haven’t used in over a year. Additionally, take into account the dimensions of your new NYC home and any potential challenges like stairs or narrow hallways. Use measurements to decide what to keep and what to part with. Will your current furniture fit into your new space? This is the time to decide and make necessary preparations.

Hire a Team of Professional NYC Movers

One of the most critical steps in preparing for your move to NYC is hiring a professional moving company. Whether you’re relocating from within the state or across the country, tackling the move on your own is unnecessary. While some homeowners believe they can save money by handling the move themselves, professional movers like Poseidon Moving and Storage can save you both time and money.

Moving is physically demanding, and attempting it alone carries health risks. Let us handle the heavy lifting, navigating the city streets, and all aspects of your move with our local and long-distance moving services. If you haven’t already found NYC-based movers for your move, now is the time!

Packing for Your Move

After setting your moving date, taking inventory, and securing professional movers, it’s time to start packing. Proper packing is much easier when you’re prepared. If you’re planning to pack on your own, ensure you have the right packing materials for the job. Familiarize yourself with best packing practices to protect your items from damage during the move.

Organize your packing process by starting with items you won’t need immediately, such as off-season clothing, holiday decorations, and special memorabilia. Use various sizes of moving boxes for different household items and label them according to the room they belong to. This organization will make unpacking a breeze when you settle into your new home.

If you prefer to skip the stress of packing, consider hiring a moving company like Poseidon Moving and Storage that offers packing services. Our professional packers will handle everything, leaving you with more time to address other important matters. Best of all, our packing services are affordably priced to suit any budget!

I have to say this is the best customer service ever! (the driver) helped me to move most of the boxes. He is a very nice person. They also have customer parking which is very convenient. Highly Recommended!

Well kept property. Poseidon Moving is a sweetheart to talk to, treated me and my kids like she's known us forever, which makes me feel good about storing my stuff there. I highly recommend.

Wow, just wow. The most amazing service I've ever gotten. I have Ikea furniture and everyone knows that Ikea furniture does not hold in being transported. But nothing was scratched! Nothing broken at all. I am completely amazed. Oleg was there on time, ready and enthusiastic to get started. He made sure to take extra good care of things I was most worried about. Most of my things were made of plywood and acrylic and everything was completely intact when it arrived. No words can explain how great the service was. Will definitely be recommending to all my friends and family.

This was my girlfriend and I's first experience with a moving company and we chose Poseidon because of the stellar reviews and fast response time by them. We have moved numerous times throughout the Boston area on our own but after our experience with Poseidon they will be our go to from now on! They are worth every penny and this was the most stress free move we have ever experienced. The movers are fast, courteous, and personable. I highly recommend these guys!
