Queens is one of the most exciting boroughs in New York. If you’re looking to move somewhere with a laid back, urban vibe and more spacious and affordable housing options than Manhattan, Queens should be your top pick. This borough features a plethora of great restaurants, recreational activities, and cultural events to keep you and yours family entertained at all times. Additionally, it’s home to the New York Mets and easily accessible to the JFK and LaGuardia airports. Hall-Lane Moving & Storage offers the following advice for anyone interested in making Queens their next home.
Your Guide to Hiring Queens Movers
Fortunately, Queens is equipped with MTA subway lines and buses that can help you get around and easily make your way into the city. If you do own a vehicle or would like to purchase one, you’ll find that owning a car in Queens is far easier than it would be in Manhattan. Queens movers note that Queens enforces very specific rules for street parking so make sure that you pay attention to signs and regulations to avoid a ticket.
If you move from Manhattan or another borough, you will be used to the amount of space your Queens home will probably offer. However, if you are moving from another state or country, it’s very likely that your home in Queens is a bit less spacious than your previous house, condo, or apartment. By investing in a storage unit from dependable Queens movers like Advantage Moving & Storage, you’ll be able to store seasonal belongings and other items that you may not use on a day to day basis.
Prior to booking Queens movers, you must talk to your new landlord to find out when they allow moving activities to take place. Many buildings in Queens require new tenants to schedule a specific time to move or have outlined a list of restrictions that must be followed. We recommend that you schedule your move on a weekday rather than a weekend to save money and reduce your chances of dealing with weekend chaos during the move. If you do need to move on a weekend, be sure to schedule the move far in advance.
