Tips for Moving to Staten Island, New York

When you’re committed to a move to Staten Island, it can be hard to know where to start with your planning. You have to check a lot of things off your to-do list before you can settle into your new home. There’s no need to fret. This comprehensive guide will tell you everything you need to know about moving to Staten Island, New York.

Staten Island is one of the five boroughs of New York City. It sits across the harbor from Manhattan, and it is bordered by Brooklyn and New Jersey. There are close to 480,000 people residing on the island, making it the least populated of the city’s boroughs. Popular residential neighborhoods on Staten Island include Huguenot, Great Kills, West New Brighton, and Todt Hill.

Staten Island is known for being more calm than its neighboring boroughs, and it has a strong historic presence. Historic homes and other buildings give the island a unique charm. The strong presence of families with Italian and Irish descent make for some tasty fare in the island’s restaurants.

When you’re moving to Staten Island, New York, having the following useful information at your disposal will make life so much easier.

Update Your Address

One of the most important (but also one of the most overlooked) tasks on people’s moving checklists is to update their addresses. Changing your address will ensure you get the bills you need and do not experience any complications with existing services.

Schedule a few hours to pick up the phone, fill out an online address change form, or stop by the company’s local branch to request a change of address. It will take time, but it’s best to do it in one fell swoop. You will need to change your address with:

You should also update your address with your local:

  • Banks
  • Loan providers
  • Utility service providers
  • Subscription services
  • Insurance
  • Office payroll department
  • Social Security Administration
  • IRS
  • Pharmacy prescriptions

Find New Utility Services

Setting up your new utilities is another top-of-the-list item. Plan to have a few days of buffer when setting up your services, because it could take the service providers some time to process your account and prepare the services in your new home. You don’t want to be without water or electricity for even a day.

The utilities that require setting up include gas, water, electricity, internet, security systems, cable TV, and possibly a home telephone. There may only be one service provider option, or you could have several companies to choose from. It’s best to discuss the options with your real estate agent, property management company, landlord, or former homeowner and then make a decision.

Once you know which service providers you want to use, call them to start your service or change your service from your old residence to your new one. It’s common for some technicians to stop by your residence to set up what you need. When it comes to electricity, it is best to have an electrical technician come to your home to perform an energy audit.

The audit includes an intense walkthrough of every room, examining some of the electrical work to ensure it is safe and up to code. They might also tell you where you are losing energy and suggest fixes in order to be more energy efficient so you can cut costs. These are some common service providers in Staten Island.

While you’re scheduling the start of your new service, don’t forget to pay the utility bills for your current location. Pay overdue bills and schedule a time for your utility companies to do a final reading of your water, gas, and electric meters. Keep a copy of the meter reports.

Prepare Your Pets

Whether you’re moving down the street or across the country, the move can be stressful for your pets. Plan ahead and prepare your pets. First, you should update your pets’ ID tags with your new Staten Island address. Get all the vet and vaccine records from your current veterinarian. If your pet has any medication for your pets, collect it before the move.

It’s also a good idea to find a pet boarding place in case of emergency. You may need to board your pet during some part of the move, so shop around until you find one that you feel comfortable with. Get the phone number and address of a veterinarian close to your home, too.

Know Move-In Rules for Neighborhood

You won’t know if there are any move-in restrictions unless you ask. Contact your real estate agent, landlord, property management company, or previous homeowner about any move-in regulations you need to be aware of. There might be restrictions on when and where your moving truck can park, for example. Ask in advance so you can prepare ahead of time.

Find a Storage Facility

You might need to use a storage facility during the moving process, so have a company on standby. Whether it’s for temporary or permanent storage, there are several options to choose from in Staten Island.

This has been a great company. I would give them a ten if possible the pricing was reasonable and the customer service excellent. Stephanie, Matt and Dan were the people I mostly communicated with and all my question were answered the same day either by email or phone. The moving crew was excellent they took great care in package my mother's belongings and made sure to be careful with her things. They even have schedule the delivery for 9 days after pick up which I found amazing. I would totally recommend them for a cross country move.

I work for a small non-profit and supervise a team of 15 people. We hired Whiteglove to move our entire team to a new location and wow, this moving company was wonderful. Rick was our initial coordinator for our move; he was so helpful, understanding of our situation (non-profits are always on a tight budget) and reassuring that the move would go smoothly so that all of my stress was kept at a minimum. On the day of the move, Sebastian and his crew of 8 were professional, kind, hard-working and some of the most efficient movers I’ve ever used. They arrived promptly at 9:30 in the morning and finished moving everything to the new destination by 2 in the afternoon. I highly recommend this company for any moves that you have, small or large.

We recently moved from Bergen County to Monmouth County and using White Glove Moving & Storage was the easiest part of the process. They were punctual, professional and did a tremendous job all around. All items in the house were moved seamlessly and all returned to the proper rooms in our new home. No items were damaged or broken during the move and having the same foreman (Alfredo) at both locations made things very efficient and he did a terrific job.The original quote was spot on and executed by Lukas in a very timely manner. We would highly recommend using White Glove Moving & Storage.

Had an exceptional experience working with White Glove on my move from NYC to Austin, TX. Their price was very competitive with other quotes received and the service was excellent, particularly from Sean who walked me through the full process and was always available and extremely responsive for questions and help. The pickup crew was very careful packing everything, incredibly efficient and left the apartment clean upon departure. They were in and out of my two bedroom apartment in just a few hours. The delivery was right on time in the middle of the arrival window and the delivery crew was also exceptional. They carefully placed everything where it was supposed to go and expertly unwrapped and set up all the large items. Everything arrived in perfect condition with no damage or issues whatsoever. In short, the entire process was first rate and could not be happier with the move and the customer service throughout. Thank you White Glove for making this long-distance move as stress free as it could be.

I had White Glove pickup furniture and contents from Williamsburg Brooklyn; then store it all in their New Jersey warehouse for a month; and deliver all items to Cape Cod Massachusetts (after a last minute pickup in Boston area) Since we were not sure of the final delivery destination, White Glove provided an alternate quote for a Los Angeles delivery, as well as special provisions for our special circumstances. Their price was in the middle low end of three estimates. Just wanted to confirm that the delivery persons did an outstanding job yesterday for the new pickup and the full delivery in Massachusetts. Even though there were only two of them, they were diligent, prompt, careful, responsive and professional. No complaints by them despite terrible rainy weather, tricky staircases and a long delay before they could have lunch.. Nothing was damaged throughout the move.The pickup crew wrapped everything in careful and meticulous manner and the delivery persons took time to make sure everything was located where I wanted it, in good condition, and that they removed all debris etc before leaving. They protected the floors and walls as best they could. In short, I could not have asked for a more capable move with a focus on customer service. .With this final chapter of the White Glove service of contracting, pickup, storage and delivery, every aspect was performed in an excellent manner. Everyone we dealt with in this first rate company was helpful, responsive, reasonable and customer service oriented to make this entire move process with minimum stress.
