The best way to experience big city living is by moving to NYC. The most populated city in the US attracts vast numbers of people from all over the world every year, and living there is undoubtedly a life-changing and defining experience. You can learn more about our New York movers and how to prepare for the long-distance relocation process without losing your mind.
As a New York moving company, we at State to State Movers like to provide only the best service for our customers. Since relocating to NY is chaotic, doing it all alone could be anxiety-inducing and more complex than it should be. That’s why all the money you saved up for relocating will be worth investing in our interstate moving services that include many benefits and packages.
The standard relocation service isn’t just about our crews appearing at your door; it entails truck transportation, loading and unloading, packing all your basic furniture and appliances, storage unit safekeeping, and mandatory liability coverage, also known as insurance. You can contact us by either calling our customer support or going to our website and submitting a free quote form.
The free relocation quote you get will be based on your household inventory list, which is how the cost of long-distance relocating is determined. If you decide to change that list before relocation day, you can – and the price will also adjust accordingly.
Moving without well-coordinated packing services is a recipe for disaster. The most important part of most moves is packing, which is easier to mess up than it seems. Professional long-distance relocation workers are trained to pack everything from a wardrobe to a pen, and they do it safely with professional packing materials.
As mentioned before, the company determines the cost of relocating according to your packaging list, but there are other ways to take advantage of our packaging service – you can pack with either a full or a partial option. They weren’t only created with the money-saving customer in mind, but the one that doesn’t have enough time to think about packaging, too.
The partial packaging option is there for any customer that wants to save some money and participate in packaging themselves. This applies to packaging up to 15 boxes of items, which entails those that can fit into standard relocation boxes; furniture packaging is part of the standard relocation.
The full packaging option is for the customer that doesn’t have the time to think about every aspect of the relocation, so they give the full reign to professional relocation workers. Of course, this means packaging more than 15 boxes of items that can fit into standard boxes, furniture excluded.
If you have things that can’t fit into a standard box or are too valuable to pack with the rest of your belongings, you can pay for additional custom crating options. We pack special items into wooden crates tailored for them. The movers providing a quote will discuss with you what should be treated and packed with more care.
While many would say that you won’t need a car in NY, it’s still necessary to get from point A to B somehow, and there’s usually no better way than driving. If you’re ready for moving state to state, but not for taking the train every day, our company offers a car shipping service, available as an integral part of your long-distance relocation. We’re also known as an auto transport company, so you can ensure that we have high-quality transportation and safety measures.
As with packaging, we thought of the money-savers with car shipping, too. There are two ways to ship your cars with us – with open and enclosed trailers. Open trailers are cheaper but equally reliable transportation options. Their only disadvantage is in the name – they’re open, which means the cars on them are exposed to the elements and more susceptible to external damage.
Those who have more expensive vehicles or simply don’t want to even imagine a scratch on their cars can opt for enclosed trailers. While being more expensive, their price is reflected in the safety they provide. There’s no exposure to the elements nor scratching, but, of course, at a price. Cars are insured in both transportation methods, so there’s no significant difference between them.
Another way to save money with car pickup and delivery is to choose between door-to-door and terminal-to-terminal options. The first option is more or less self-explanatory – we pick up the car at your doorstep (or driveway) and deliver it to the one at your new home; you won’t see any additional steps in this process, but you may need to cash out a bit more. The one time a car shipping crew wouldn’t deliver to your doorstep would be if your street or driveway isn’t accessible by truck.
The latter, the terminal-to-terminal option, requires a bit more effort on your part. You’d drive or deliver the car to the terminal in your town and leave it for us to pack there. Later, when the vehicle arrives in NY, you’d pick it up at our company terminal and get to drive around town for the first time.
As part of the standard relocation services, our New York mover crew can also offer you storage services to take advantage of. Typically, people leave their belongings in storage units when they don’t know where to put them or don’t want to throw them away just yet. You can do this, too; if you need more encouragement to do so, the storage service is free for the first 30 days of safekeeping, while the units are modern and supervised 24/7.
The New York moving companies that offer long-distance relocation services have mandatory liability coverage as part of their standard package. This applies to all items packed by you and the relocation crew. The mandatory liability coverage is 60 cents per pound of damaged goods.
Additionally, cars you ship with our transportation service are insured, too. Cars on open trailers are insured for external damages of up to $100,000, while those in enclosed trailers are insured for external damage of up to $500,000.
If, by any chance, you want to ensure your items are insured for their total value, you can pay a little extra to get the Full Value Replacement Insurance. This option, however, applies only to the items packed by the relocation crew. You can also insure the items packed into custom crates with the FVRI plan and leave the worrying to someone who didn’t think of everything.
Many young adults daydream about relocating to NYC, and how could they not? The city of opportunities never ceases to amaze and surprise even its locals, let alone anyone who moves there. However, with the highest population out of all the cities in the US (around 8,800,000,) it can turn out overwhelming and tiring. People who come to New York City from the Midwest or even the West Coast take time to adapt to this wild ride of a place.
This place isn’t just the most important location on the East Coast, but it carries a lot of cultural, political, and economic weight globally, too. It’s one of the forty megacities of the world, neck and neck with Sao Paulo, Brazil, and Seoul, South Korea. If you want to be a part of a global economy and work your way up the ranks of NYC streets, you’ll love staying here.
Some more interesting facts about NYC are:
Any young adult who moves to NY has difficult experiences with housing and accommodation; this is because it is one of the most expensive cities in the US (and even in the world). While having limitless housing options, some of them are below the basic living standards. Still, this is all a matter of budgeting and prioritizing – if you want a lot for little money, you won’t be happy with the results. Adapting your lifestyle and budget to NY’s speed is the only way to live to tell the tale.
The average home prices are around $600,000, while rent averages at $1,400 per month. There aren’t any suburban neighborhoods in the metropolitan area, so the area is densely urban; because of this, 67% of NY’s population are renters, while 33% are homeowners. Around 56% of residents claim that there’s enough home variety in NY, but only 12% feel there’s enough parking available.
The five boroughs are divided into different areas and neighborhoods, so if we recommended Brooklyn, its 2,7 million residents would ask – where exactly? Crown Heights, Flatbush, or Bushwick? We’ve narrowed it down to the five highest-rated neighborhoods, which are:
If you feel like Gil Scott-Herron, who sang “New York is killing me” a decade ago, you can contact our movers in New York to help you move out. It’s OK to want to change environments since fast-paced and chaotic living isn’t for everyone. At State to State Movers, we offer the opportunity to leave NYC and get our high-quality relocation services whenever you want. All you have to do is contact our customer support or submit a free quote on our website. Moving interstate isn’t easy, so it’s better to make this significant life change with professional movers’ help.
I am very satisfied from this company after they helped me ship my vehicle cross country. All along the way they were very supportive, transparent, reasonable with terms and fees and friendly. Especially their agent Tom.
I’ll definitely turn to them again any time I need moving!
Thanks to State to State I was able to carry out the move of a 2br apartment inexpensively and quickly. Friendly salesperson provided me with a free quote based on all the furniture and other items. On the day of the move movers were working together very harmoniously. From the very beginning I was properly asked about the amount of work and offered the appropriate price and truck option to transport my Nissan Murano. The movers arrived in time, things were packed quickly and accurately, we did not have to worry about the fragile things – my collection of vases, crystal glass table – they all made it to my destination safely. I will recommend to all friends!
We were moving to a new beautiful house in Ohio, and because of the lower prices over there, we decided to transport the most necessary: 2 baby beds, 2 drawers, some electronics, boxes with books and personal stuff. Also had a few artwork pieces crated, which is a must when you are transporting valuable fragile items. Good feedback on: customer support, packaging quality, loading speed, price. This is the best company on the long distance moving market which saves the nerves of people planning to move. I do not like to move, but once again it is necessary, then just take advantage of this company’s services, and you won’t be disappointed.
I will recommend this company to all friends and colleagues. I got promoted and I had to move to another state to start the work in the new place. So I was moving from Nevada to the City of Angels – the dream of every single person is to live there. I went to State to State by the recommendation of my fellow colleagues who used their services before. 1 truck, 4 people, 9 hours of working process. Honestly, I was pleasantly surprised by the level of service and the reasonability of the price. The company has fully justified its name, transferring me from one state to another in a timely professional manner.
During the move, we have taken advantage of the free services of this company. We ordered an in-home estimate to make sure we are being quoted exact price. They also don’t charge you for any packing supplies, which is great, unless you want to order some supplies directly from their website. The movers were polite and neat, even though we had a few very heavy furniture items. In general, we are satisfied. Thank you for your assistance in moving, you’ve done a perfect job.
First of all, my mistake was that I completely forgot about the time of this in-home estimate appointment and when they called me in the morning I was like “Oh man what should I do now”. But I was surprised that they said that it’s okay and they can reschedule, after I apologized. We moved from Oregon to Montana, but we had a lot of things, so we wanted to get an exact quote. State to State Movers were very accommodating and professional! Thumbs up.
