There is no city that has an exciting buzz like New York City. It is one of the most opportunistic places to live in the world. The possibilities are endless and the thought of living there is exhilarating. New York City has some complexities that need to be taken into consideration when you are planning to move here. Whether you are moving around the block, or making a long distance move, here are some helpful tips to make it a smoother transition!

Downsize Your Belongings Before Moving

Anytime someone prepares to move, it doesn’t take long to realize you need to purge some items. If you are planning a move to NYC, plan on downsizing. Apartments in New York City are most likely smaller than what you are used to. Renting a smaller space is the best way to save money, especially in Manhattan, which is definitely a costly place to live. Take advantage of this time to simplify your life.

Building Moving Schedules

Many apartment buildings have moving schedules. They may only allow move ins on certain days. Make sure you check with your new building manager to make sure you have the green light on the day you are planning your move. A lot of buildings will have a service elevator that you can reserve for your move. The service elevator may be in high demand so be sure to give your building manager enough notice so it’s available for you. If your building doesn’t have an elevator, your building manager will be able to advise you on the best time to move in and avoid overcrowding the stairs. He/she can tell you possible dates when no one else is moving to help you choose the best move in day for you.
