Common Questions Regarding NYC Moves

When Is the Best Time to Move in NYC?

There is never a bad time to live life as a New Yorker. New Yorkers enjoy a true, four-season climate. The sun shines bright nearly 230 days a year, but be prepared for the rainy days and an occasional snow storm. Move with FlatRate and your movers will ensure your belongings are relocated to your new home safely, whether it is hot, cold, windy, raining or snowing.

Most moves take place at the end of the month or beginning of the month, so finding a date in the middle may prove to be more cost effective.

One thing to keep in mind, though, especially when moving around major holidays like Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Years, is that street closures for parades and celebrations are normal and could delay transit. This site, as well as your local movers, can keep you in the loop on any festivities happening around the time of your scheduled move.

What’s the Deal With NYC Traffic?

If you choose to live in Manhattan and own a car, you are not alone (and you are very brave). However, owning a car is not necessary. On any given day, the traffic landscape can be completely different than the day before, but this site gives you the real-time info on any of the five boroughs.

Ask your realtor/landlord for any shortcuts to your new place, or download the Beat the Traffic app on your smart phone to get personalized traffic information on which routes work for you. But the best advice we can give is to get to know the subway system. You don’t have to worry about finding a parking place, waiting on pedestrians or following strict traffic rules – like how you CANNOT make a right turn on red.

Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in NYC?

Local liquor stores and big-box retailers are a haven for cardboard boxes, but FlatRate makes it even easier to get boxes for your New York move. We can deliver high-quality moving boxes (in a variety of shapes and sizes) to your front door, faster than you can say, “Where’s the packing tape?”

All of our boxes are brand new, and designed to protect all of your items during a move.By ordering through FlatRate, you’ll save yourself time and the grief often associated with using compromised boxes. Your belongings are too valuable to literally fall through the cracks!

Where Can I Park in NYC?

Be careful parking, or be prepared to pay a fine. This website lets you put in your parking parameters (start time, end time, etc.) and then it gives you a list of parking options and prices. Pay close attention to the exact addresses, as one lot may have a different rate than a neighboring one. Also be sure to pay close attention to parking signs – especially the fine print. Even spaces with meters have no-parking clauses for a few hours a day, so if a spot seems too good to be true, it probably is.

It’s much cheaper to pay for overpriced parking spots that it is to recover your car from getting towed. Remember to park 15 feet away from fire hydrants and keep your tires entirely outside of the crosswalk markings. And make sure you keep meters well-fed! Parking tickets are issued 24/7!

Moving to NYC? Tips for the Relocater

The “City So Nice, They Named it Twice” also happens to be one of the most exciting, diverse, and culturally rich places in the world. Manhattan is home to Central Park, and is the city’s administrative and financial center. The Bronx boasts the nation’s largest metropolitan zoo and Yankee Stadium, and Brooklyn is well-known for its independent art scene and cultural, ethnic, and social diversity.

The New York Mets and a collection of unique villages and towns founded by the Dutch are appreciated in Queens, and then there is Staten Island, which offers unparalleled views of the Statue of Liberty, as well as one of the city’s last undisturbed forests.

If there’s something you’d like to know about this wonderful city, call our office or ask your movers – NYC has everything you could ever want or need! Let us make our home, your home.

NYC’s Top Companies

NYC has employment opportunities in nearly every industry. You just need to get here and find them! New York City is one of the three command centers for the entire world’s economy. In fact, as of 2013, the city was home to 52 Fortune 500 Companies.

Silicon Alley is packed full of high-tech companies involving digital media, Internet, software development, financial technology, telecommunications and more. Tourism’s economic impact on the city exceeds $55 billion annually, creating countless jobs in hospitality. The country’s largest municipal health care system is here, as is one of the largest natural harbors in the world.

Don’t let anyone tell you the Big City doesn’t have job opportunities. They’re all over the city waiting to be found.

NYC Top Attractions

More famous icons are packed in Manhattan alone than any other city on the planet. From the Metropolitan Art Museum to the Empire State Building, this borough offers countless attractions. Don’t forget about Times Square, which earned NYC its nickname of the “Center of the Universe.”

The arts scene in New York is incomparable. It‘s the birthplace of endless cultural movements and has more than 2,000 arts and cultural organizations. Broadway is comprised of more than 40 theaters and the Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts is home to 12 very influential arts organizations.

FlatRate offers unparalleled packing and unpacking services to give you ample time to get started exploring all that your new home has to offer.

NYC Public Transit

One of the reasons NYC movers are so high in demand is because very few people have a car (although with all of the traffic, it’s hard to tell). While you can take public transportation everywhere, you can also hop on your two-wheeler to take advantage of the city’s extensive network of bike lanes, paths and greenways. New York City DOT also issues a free publication annually of an updated city bike map. Ask your movers for transportation tips around the city – they know the shortcuts!

NYC Parks

Technically a park, Central Park is home to Central Park Zoo, Brooklyn Bridge Park, Trump Rink,SummerStage and so much more. But that’s not the only green space in the city! The High Line is a 1.5 mile-long park built in Manhattan on an elevated section of a disused New York Central Railroad spur. And as of 2014, the High Line attracts nearly 5 million visitors a year.

Additionally, Staten Island Greenbelt offers roughly 28 miles of hiking trails, and the Gateway National Recreation Area includes several parks, such as Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, Rockaway Peninsula and Great Kills Park.

NYC Food and Drink

New York City is paradise for food lovers. The city’s extensive immigrant history influences the huge variety of international cuisines. New York-style pizza, cheesecake and bagels – and not to mention more than 4,000 mobile food vendors – became icons of the city, thanks to Central European and Italian immigrants. Whether you are looking for Middle-Eastern, Polish, Chinese, Mexican, or any other type of food, you will find it in abundance here.
Check out this list of 25 must-eat places around the city. And be sure to ask your NYC movers for their recommendations—locals know the hidden gems.

NYC Sports

Love ‘em or hate ‘em, NYC is called the “Capital of Baseball” for a reason. As the home to the iconic New York Yankees and the New York Mets, avid sports fans will never be far away. Football lovers root for the New York Jets and New York Giants, both of which play at MetLife Stadium (technically in New Jersey).

The New York Rangers and the New York Islanders both heat up the ice at Madison Square Garden and Brooklyn’s Barclays Center, respectively. And the New York Knicks and Brooklyn Nets give NBA fans plenty to cheer about during basketball season.
