Important Moving Tips for Moving to NYC

Long-distance moving to a city like NYC is unique (to say very least). If you are moving from a midwestern state, NYC can feel overwhelming with a high volume of people living in the small island Manhattan (and even in the Outer Boroughs). And everyone needs all the same necessities and services. Here are your top tips from our moving blog: 5 Tips for Moving Long-Distance to NYC.

Choose strategic moving dates: Moving season is May-September which is super hectic in high-volume destinations like the Big Apple.

Do your homework on Neighborhoods ASAP: New York City might be a small area, but each neighborhood is remarkably nuanced. Make sure the neighborhood is a good fit for you (and your family).

Set-up utility services as soon as have a new address: NYC has over 10 million people who use Con Edison (electricity) and cable-internet services from Cablevision. You’ll thank us when you move-in and have light and Wi-Fi.

New York Long-Distance Movers Are Going to These States

New York residents are still moving out of The Empire State. Florida is still the most popular destination since over 65,000 New Yorkers secured Florida drivers licenses in 2022. Beyond Pandemic migration, people are out-of-state moving in search of lower cost of living including taxes.

At the same time, many of these outbound movers migrated to nearby states like New Jersey, Connecticut and Pennsylvania. While bordering states still have high costs of living than most of U.S., Out-of-state movers can experience as much as 20% in lower taxes, and certainly consumer prices. And while the state of California continues to lose interstate movers to lower cost states, there always has been a symbiotic relationship between New York City and Los Angeles-San Francisco, CA for corporate relocations in finance and other industries.

In fact, the state and the city have something for everyone. At the same time, The state boasts competitive professional sports franchises like the Yankees (MLB), Mets (MLB) the Knicks (NBA), the Rangers (NHL), the Islanders (NHL), and the Jets and Buffalo Bills (NFL). Like it or not, New Yorkers don’t always agree on their team, but they are loyal fans. And if you’re not a team-sports person, the world famous NYC Marathon is run the first Sunday in November each year.

Here are your basic NYC neighborhoods for great shopping and dining. Whether you’re looking for designer labels in Midtown or “mostly” designer handbags on Canal street, the city has your budget.

If you have anything left over, go buy some trendy art in Soho on the lower west side. Lastly, when you’re done spending and eating, head uptown to Central Park and rent a bicycle to tour nature’s magic tucked in upper Manhattan. While the tourist destinations are cool, get to know NYC and visit local eateries / shopping in the Flatiron District, Greenwich Village, Chinatown-Little Italy, Canal Street, Union Square, Soho, Madison Ave, Fifth Avenue and the garment district.
