MOVING DATE

The most important aspect of the move is the date. Every company has peak and off-peak days. High volume days like the last few days of the month (starting with the 23rd until the end of the month), the first few days of the month (1st – 5th), and a few days in the middle (14th, 15th, 16th) are the most popular. Moving companies know this and they charge whatever they want, sometimes double their usual going rate.

 

Even if you didn’t find a place to move to yet, that doesn’t matter. Reserve the movers, because at this point you can still get good prices; making changes to the reservation will be easy and all reputable companies will do it for free. So once again, I want to be very clear: If you are moving on a peak day, reserve the movers one month ahead of time.

 

Most elevator buildings and even some walk-ups won’t let you move in on weekends. So, weekends tend to be a little cheaper. The same goes for the afternoons– most building managements won’t let you move in past 4pm or 5pm, so the morning slots are the prime spots and they go fast. It’s always best to find out the moving rules of the buildings you are moving out of, and into.

Mission Statement

Hello everyone and welcome to a place where you will hear the truth. Moving is considered one of the most stressful things that you can do in your life. There are many companies to choose from, some big, some small. You can be charged by the hour, by the cubic foot, by the pound. Which one is better? Does it matter how I get charged for Long Distance move compared to how I get charged for local move. What about an international move?

All these questions will be answered and more. I will have stories of triumph and things to avoid, advice on packing and wrapping, and everything else in between. This is catered to my beloved city where I grew up, moved multiple times, and would never leave no matter what. This is for us New Yorkers, because moving here is completely different than moving anywhere else.

I will not let this become a place where people badmouth companies. There are plenty of places where that exists (you can go over there and knock yourself out). I want to help you, share my experience with my beloved New Yorkers, and educate everyone because education in the moving industry is everything.
