Moving in Long Island City

Welcome to Long Island City

Welcome, one and all, to the dazzling and magnificent Long Island City! While it has the distinctive and independent ‘City’ title, and has the size, hustle, culture, and economic power of most American cities, Long Island City is, in fact, a large area within the Borough of Queens. Long Island City has an illustrious and long history, even outside of the scope of being a part of the Greater NYC Area.

A Guide to the perfect LIC move

So, how do you go for that truly perfect Long Island City moving experience? Well, that would mean making sure to do a few things. Everything, at the end of the day, comes down to planning and decision making. Sometimes in life, we can’t plan a move as far in advance as we’d like; life happens.

Planning is key

When at all possible, of course, make sure you plan your move at the right time. This means to, both, plan for when is most convenient for you and your schedule, but also at a time of year when you’re likely to get movers the most easily.
At Perfect Moving, we will always work our best to be available whenever you need us, but if you order movers for a quieter time of year, it definitely increases your chances of getting more people and vans (or the van you want) if needed; we don’t have an unlimited supply!

Know our city well

Planning well also means to pay attention to your Long Island City (and New York City) surroundings and schedules. Our trained and dedicated team will always do the physical moving work as quickly and efficiently as you could imagine, but any driving and parking situation within New York City can be a terror.
If you schedule your move in the mid-afternoon (or even night) instead of morning or evening rush-hour traffic, then the driving and parking/unloading times will be exponentially quicker, and hence, your move will be finished even quicker too.

Go over everything with us pre-move, absolutely everything

Neither you nor our moving team want any surprises along your next move, so make sure you go over all relevant details when planning your big move with us (and getting your free quote!) Make your best estimate of what needs to be moved, the overall size of the move, and if there are specific boxes and/or items that will need our special attention or equipment (like a piano, pool table, aquarium, etc.) The more our team knows, the more accurate your quote will be, the more equipped and ready we will come for your move in its entirety, and the quicker and simpler your move will be.
