Take Inventory

Moving has a way of revealing just how many things you have accumulated since the last time you moved. This is the perfect opportunity to take inventory! If you’re making a long distance move to NYC, it is especially important that you take time to get rid of those unnecessary belongings that you have yet to have the chance to donate or throw away. If you find that you haven’t used an item in a year or more, consider tossing it. Another very important thing to keep in mind during this process is the parameters of your new home in NYC as well as any stairs or exterior hallways. Use measurements of these areas to aid you in deciding what to keep and what to toss. Will all of your current furniture fit into your new space? Now is the time to decide and make the necessary preparations!

Hire a Team of Professional NYC Movers

While preparing for the process of moving to NYC, one of the most crucial steps is to hire a team of professional movers. Whether you’re moving to NYC from another area of the state or cross-country, there is no need for you to take on the challenge by yourself!

Packing For Your Move

Once you have set your moving date, taken inventory, and hired a reputable moving company, it’s time to start packing! Packing is much easier when you are prepared. If you’ll be handling packing on your own, it is important that you have the right packing materials for the job. It is also vital that you are aware of the best packing practices so that you can ensure your items are packed securely and are well-protected from any possible damage during your move.

Organize your packing process by starting with items that you won’t need immediately. This includes off-season clothing, holiday decorations, and special memorabilia. Make sure that you have a variety of moving boxes available to handle household belongings of various sizes and shapes. It is also helpful to pack items according to the room you’ll be storing them in. All kitchen supplies should be packed together and labeled accordingly, for example. This will make it much easier to unpack when you’re finally getting settled in your new home.

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!

We recently got scammed by a mover we hired. Out $500 bucks !!! So I called Poseidon and told them what happened! Owners name is Alex. They fit me the very next day and I didn't have to pay them until furniture was delivered!!! Best movers EVER!!! Prompt. Amazing young men that packed up the truck Emmett & Maslah were amazing! Beyond Patient . I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS COMPANY!!!
