New York City has special requirements.
New York City’s urban environment creates a number of unique moving conditions. Many buildings, having been constructed in varying time periods, have also been built to different standards. Some buildings, run by co-op boards, place restrictions on movers. Apartment buildings often insist that protective coverings be installed for floors, walls, and hallways. The city can also pose problematic driving conditions in the form of traffic jams, bridges, and tunnels.

Building regulations: Ask early.
Many building require residents to move at specified times or reserve a time slot. Some buildings restrict the use of elevators and loading docks. Inform superintendents or doormen about your move, ahead of time. They may be able to help secure parking space on the street.
