How to choose a moving company?

It's important to choose an international moving company with a good reputation. Doing so ensures that you know your goods will be safe when in transit. There are countless consumer reviews websites that allow you to develop an understanding of which companies can be entrusted to help you with your international move

Experience Matters

Choose an established moving company. Sure, choosing a new company may help you grab a deal that's cheaper than industry averages, but it may also leave you vulnerable to errors or a poor service.

Clear Pricing

Find a company that's open with their pricing structure. It's an unfortunate fact that many businesses hit you with hidden charges and fees.

Timely Moves

Get as much information about pick-up and delivery times as possible. This is vital for any move, let alone an overseas one.

Assigned Coordinator

Work with a company that will assign you a coordinator or manager. There's nothing worse than having to deal with a different employee every time you make contact and doing so may cause something to go wrong

Coverage Discussion

Discuss the company's liability coverage. If something were to go wrong with your household goods during the move, their liability coverage could make the world of difference and save you from being substantially out of pocket

Online Insights

Check out customer reviews online. Get a feel for the quality of customer service provided by a moving company, as this is often a good indicator of the overall quality of service you should expect from them.

Elate Moving - your best decision for moving in Washington Heights, NYC

If you are moving to Washington Heights in NYC you might meet lots of different challenges. This diverse, culturally rich neighborhood at the northern tip of Manhattan is known for its steep hills, historic architecture and bustling streets. However, navigating the logistics of moving in this area can be daunting due to tight streets and limited parking spaces, which can turn a simple move into a complex operation. But if you hire the best moving company, they will bravely face all the difficulties instead of you. What kind of challenges are we talking about?

Challenges of moving in NYC in Washington Heights

Navigational challenges

First of all, the geographic layout of Washington Heights can be a real problem. It has numerous hills and narrow avenues that often complicates the transportation of large items and furniture. Also, the dense population also means that moving during peak hours can lead to significant delays, which can complicate the loading and unloading process.

Parking and permits

There are lots of requirements for a moving truck to park well near your new home. It often requires advanced planning and may involve obtaining special permits from the city. Moreover, this can be especially challenging for newcomers who are unfamiliar with the bureaucratic processes of NYC.

Building regulations

You should also know that many buildings in Washington Heights are pretty old, have strict rules about moving times, elevator usage, and noise levels. So new residents must navigate these regulations to avoid fines and ensure a smooth transition into their new apartments.

How Elate Moving can help you with these challenges

Elate Moving provided excellent service from the second I called them through the completion of the move. They showed up on time, came prepared (with packing supplies, blankets and other tools), were nice and efficient. They also provided the best quote out of all the movers I called. Highly recommend their services for your next move.

The two gentlemen arrived in their 20 foot truck a half hour early today. That was excellent! These guys packed everything up neatly. They got it all on the truck in a more organized manner than I could’ve ever imagined. Absolutely phenomenal service
