How can we help with your residential move in NYC?

Our moving specialists have been helping couples, families, and individuals move for a number of reasons including those of a financial nature, leases expiring, or just wanting to be with other family members during the pandemic.  Even before things started re-opening throughout the 5 boroughs, people were moving from their current residences to new locations within the city.  Most of them were well aware of the difficulties involved when trying to find the right apartment here in NYC.

  • Have all packing materials and supplies delivered if you don’t want the hassle of going out to purchase them.
  • If you prefer, NYC Movers & Packers can supply boxes, bubble wrap, packing tape and other supplies in our moving day services for a small additional fee.
  • Practice CDC recommended protocol when preparing for your move by disinfecting everything that you pack before our team arrives to start helping with your move.
  • If you’ve stocked up on non-perishable foods, determine how to pack them and either take them with you or give them away as we are not allowed to transport any food items when helping you move.
  • Remember to practice social distancing at all times while the NYC Movers & Packers team is assisting you on moving day.
  • If the opportunity arises, make sure your new home is cleaned and sanitized before the move-in date. Then on moving day, be sure that everything, especially high-touch surfaces is cleaned and sanitized when the movers arrive and start unloading.

Additionally, COVID-19 bacteria can survive on cardboard for up to 24 hours.   So, if you want to ensure moving in NYC safely during COVID-19 we suggest you wait until the next day before you start unpacking everything in boxes.
