Tips for Moving to Manhattan, New York

Moving to Manhattan? It can be an exciting time, but not completely devoid of stress. Cities don’t get busier than Manhattan — it’s constantly bustling with energy and people at all hours of the day. As you navigate your new move, here are some tips to keep in mind when moving to Manhattan, New York.

Manhattan is one of the most important business, entertainment and cultural capitals of the U.S., and it is also the country’s most densely populated county. Approximately 1.6 million people call Manhattan home, but the island is only 23 square miles. It is divided into three sections: uptown, which includes the area next to and north of Central Park; midtown, which is a large commercial and media district; and downtown/lower Manhattan, which includes the financial district, SoHo, Little Italy and Chinatown.

Use the resources below to make sure everything you need is at your fingertips when you make your big move to Manhattan.

Update Your Address

With finding an affordable residence in Manhattan, packing up your old place, and dealing with every other aspect of moving, it can be hard to remember the little details. One of the most important things to not forget to do when moving is to update your address.

Take an afternoon to make phone calls or stop by local branches of the various entities that require an address change. Below is a list of all the places that should be on your address change list.

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

It’s never too early to start looking for new utility services. In fact, it’s best to give yourself a few buffer days when setting up your new services so you don’t go without water, electricity or Wi-Fi. It might take a few days for the service providers to process your request and get the services ready for your new home.

Home utilities include water, gas, electric, sewer, internet, cable TV, security systems, and phone lines. Depending on the utility, there might be one singular company to go through or multiple options to choose from. Talk to your real estate agent, the previous homeowner, or the landlord to see which providers they recommend. Call each utility company to create a new account or transfer service from your old residence to your new one. You’ll need to tell them the end date of your current services as well as the start date of your new ones.

Typically, a technician will stop by your new home or apartment to take care of any set-up needs. It’s good practice to schedule a time for a technician to visit your home to conduct an energy audit. They will be able to ensure the electrical work is safe and up to code, limiting the risk of outages, electrocution and house fires.

During an audit, a technician will inspect every room in your home, searching for energy loss and faulty wiring. You will then be able to decide what updates you want to make to increase energy efficiency and safety in your home.

When setting up your new utility services prior to your move, make sure to pay any overdue utility bills. Schedule a time for your current utility companies to perform a final reading of your gas, water and electric meters. Keep a copy of the meter reports for your own records.

Prepare Your Pets

Your pets will need some care during the move, too. Make sure your pets have proper ID tags with your updated address before you leave for your new home in Manhattan. You should also collect any vet records from your current vet, as well as any necessary pet medication.

During the move or immediately after, you may need to board your pet. Find a pet boarding location that fits your needs and will take care of your furry (or scaly) members of the family. It’s also important to find a veterinarian close to your new home and keep their contact information easily accessible in case of an emergency.

Know Move-In Rules for Neighborhood

You might need a parking permit for the moving truck, or there might be other moving regulations in your Manhattan neighborhood you need to be aware of. Ask your real estate agent, the previous homeowner, the landlord or the property management company what moving rules and regulations you need to be aware of. Ask ahead of time to avoid last-minute changes to the move-in date.

Debbie Murray

First leg of the move was amazing! Ralph who visited the house to give the estimate, Mike and Darwin in sales and Stone and team who moved my belongings to storage were amazing. I was practically on the phone with Mike or Darwin everyday. They were very patient with my questions, changes, arrangements for my paintings. I will post another review once I get my belongings out of storage and move them to LA.

If you need to move? This company should be your 1st & only call! From the initial consultation with Frank in the office to the actual move day with Julio & his team was extremely seamless, stress free and the most professional & efficient display of team work I have witnessed utilizing a moving service! White Glove knows what they are doing, no complaints about the pricing whatsoever! They did not scratch, dent or damage any of our possessions & helped us pack! I could go on & on about them and what they did right! Stay away from uninsured amateurs and get the right people for the job! “You get what you pay for..” rings completely true here! Thank you again Frank & Julio! We are forever grateful!

We had a FANTASTIC moving experience. Everyone I talk to has said they have never heard of a move so well done. We had a fantastic team of movers and they were so helpful the entire day. They worked quickly and took great care of all our items. They even made sure we had a chance to look at all furniture to advise on placement and were happy to adjust as needed. Overall, we had a great experience working with White Glove. Even the lead up was very easy - the representative we received the quote through was always available to answer questions and help us modify the quote. Thanks to the whole team!

We chose White Glove Moving and Storage as a recommendation from a friend. My first experience was with Chris and he was very pleasant and informative. He made it easy to arrange my move and followed up promptly to every additional question... They allowed my to move my date and were pleasant when I did so. They showed up on time and were efficient and professional. They took everything apart and wrapped everything perfectly so there was no damage.. They were patient with me when I wanted to hold them up to put felt on the furniture as it arrived. They worked hard and did not waste any time. There were no surprises at the end when it was time to pay my bill. Everything was as they said it would be. Overall I am very happy with White Glove Moving and Storage and would use them again!!

I highly recommend White Glove! This is our second time using them and the service is exceptional. Everything is wrapped and well cared for. They are reliable. Oscar and his crew were very patient. We had too move some furniture around from the original place and they did it with no problems. Moving is stressful enough, higher a great company.
They provided excellent service, arrived in the time they said they would and handled everything with care. Will gladly use again.
White Glove made my move extremely easy and convenient. They're leading the way in moving in NJ and it's very clear from the initial phone call coordinating an estimate that they know exactly how to move any item from your house or apartment. Easy, efficient, and careful with all items and aspects of the move. Would absolutely recommend using this company if you have an upcoming move around the area.

We did a detailed walk through before and after and the team didn’t miss a thing. I also appreciated the follow-up call to check on my experience. If you need a moving company I highly recommend White Glove Movers.

I used White Glove for multiple moves and storage. Whether it was moving from my house to my apartment, moving items to storage, or a long distance move from NJ to SC, they were professional, courteous, and highly supportive. I highly recommend their services whether small or large.
I was very satisfied with White Glove from start to finish- from dropping off boxes in advance of my move, to the day of the move, to help make what is typically a stressful process, as seamless as possible. I highly recommend.

White Glove provides flawless service from start to finish. White Glove even made the packing process easier by dropping off boxes and tape after I reserved my date. Marton and his moving team were beyond fantastic. They treated all my belongings with such care, wrapping all my furniture precisely, and communicating consistently with my partner and I so everything ended up in the correct rooms. I truly could not recommend White Glove highly enough. Their service is absolutely worth the money.

The entire experience was a pleasure from start to finish, with the project manager taking his time to understand the needs of the move. He didn't try to rush me, and at times Frank even pointed out certain things I could have been missing.The crew itself was extremely professional and efficient. They took their time walking through the apartment both, before packing and before unpacking.At the back-end, they did not leave till I was satisfied with everything.I'd definitely recommend them to anyone else who is looking to move.

White Glove did a fantastic job moving us back from our rental to our newly renovated home. We used a different company to move out & I was so worried to move again after that experience BUT White Glove and our crew eased my mind. The crew was professional, quick, organized & respectful. They did a great job and I am so happy that I decided to give White Glove a chance.
The team that did our move was fantastic ! They made everything feel easy on that stressful day for us. Emad and Ezazat were super helpful and very efficient. Definitely recommend to use White Glove for any move !!! FIVE STARS ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

From the first call I was impressed with the attention I got from Mike my salesman. This was followed by Lukas working with me on estimate to make sure I had all the information tto make an informed decision about needing 1 or 2 trucks since I was moving staff from 2 locations. Then the moving day came. The movers came on time, they introduced themself and Marton ( the leader of the crew)walked with me around to make sure they know what exacly to pack, explained to me the wrapping process and taking some of my furniture apart. I was very happy with White Glove services and would recommend them to anyone.

Everything about our experience with White Glove moving was exceptional. From the initial estimate to the final move day. They were extremely communicative throughout the process and our moving crew on the big day were kind, careful, and efficient. 10/10!
This was the first time my husband and I ever used a moving company and we were so happy that we chose White Glove. Every step of the way was nothing but professional. We were able to set up an appointment for someone to come to our home (we were local) and give us an estimate. Many places we called did not offer this as an option. Rick was on time, upfront about prices and had a quote for us the next day. Moving day was phenomenal. Jonathan and his crew were amazing. They were professional, efficient, and friendly. Moving is always a difficult process but these guys made it so much easier. Worth every penny! Highly recommend.

White Glove Moving Company is a class act. From the initial consultation over the phone to the initial meeting and move, I was thoroughly pleased. Tyrone and his crew was professional, quick and attentive to all of my questions and needs. So well worth the time and support.
