This time of year has many New Yorkers on the move. From students moving into their new college dorms or apartments to professionals embarking on a new career or families moving into a new home, there are many people in the process of locating themselves or their stuff to a new location. If you are among that group, you may be tempted to move yourself to save some money, but you should probably give that a second thought.
While it’s nice to think about saving a few bucks whenever possible, moving is not a time that you want to take responsibility for preserving your bottom line at all costs. Even if you only think you have a few things to move, you may quickly find that moving yourself is more than you bargained for. A company offering van and truck delivery services can not only make it easier for you to get your things where they need to go in one trip (as compared to the multiple trips you may have to make with your friend’s borrowed “large” SUV), but the professionals working at these types of companies are experienced in knowing how best to maneuver boxes and furniture in and around intricate obstacles.
Moving a complete apartment worth of furniture or even a few things into a New York City dorm room can be far more challenging than one might imagine, simply because you are trying to tackle the task in the Big Apple. First, there are issues to contend with simply when it comes to where you can park your vehicle and for how long you can keep it in any one place while you get your items unloaded. Then, even if you can manage this difficult task, you’ll likely still have to move the SUV, van or truck elsewhere before you can actually get the objects to their final destination upstairs. This means you need multiple people to deal with driving, staying with the stuff and possibly even trying to temporarily direct traffic.
Once your stuff is unloaded, you’ll then have to figure out how you’re going to get everything from the curb to your apartment, dorm or office. Depending on how much stuff you have and how heavy or cumbersome the objects are, this can be a very daunting task. Even if you manage to finish your move successfully, you’ll likely be thoroughly exhausted and will probably swear that you’ll never do that again.
In contrast, when you call a reputable delivery services company, you can have professionals handle all the work of moving your stuff for you. They’ll do it more efficiently than you ever could, more safely and they will probably be done in far less time. All you have to do is to make the call to arrange for a pick-up and delivery, get an estimate and then watch as your stuff is moved for you. Then all you need to do is to unpack and enjoy your new digs.
