I’ve decided to Move! Now what?

Once you are decided on a new residential space for you and your family, or a new office space for you and your employees, you are ready to look towards the next steps of the moving process.

The first thing you will want to do is look into moving companies of the city. Your top priorities of selecting a moving company should be experience and insurance. Braha has both - ensuring a stress free and easy move.

Getting the Process Started...

Once you submit for a quote or give us a call, a Braha professional will officially take you along every step of the way through your Braha moving experience. This includes an in-home estimate service.

During this, our movers will gain a better perspective on your current space and the amount of items you will be packing and needing to move.

This begins our inventory list of your items, so we can accurately record and keep track of your items through your move.

This in-home estimate also gives us an idea of the amount of boxes and moving/packing materials will be necessary to complete your move.

Once the in-home estimate is complete, we will coordinate the time and date for your move.

This is when details of your move become important and can affect the way move in day goes. Let us help you optimize these details for you.

Things like packing, ensuring you have all the proper insurance, and making sure your new space is ready for you to arrive are all the details we can help you with.

After handling these administrative details of your move, you can look towards you current space - and figuring out what the heck you are going to do with it all.

Moving is a great time to go through all of your things, get rid of some of the old, make some room for the new, and donate anything you can.

When you begin the packing process, take it a room at a time. In each one, make some piles of what you need to bring to the new space and another of what you can donate.

Do not let yourself get overwhelmed! Packing is a large task, even when you take it room by room.

Braha is here to make sure that your move is completed stress free - from the moment you call us until we bring in the last moving box into your new space.

If you need assistance packing, we've got your back. If we arrive on moving day and you still have a few last things to get into boxes or a few boxes that need to be taped up - no worries, that is what Braha is here to do for you. Do

Worried about Valuables?

We understand that moving is most often times a new experience for people. With over 20 years of experience, we have the knowledge on how to pack certain things.

From antique pieces of furniture, to grand pianos, and delicate displays of art or paintings, Braha has the experience and will be able to handle moving any and all valuables you may have.

Decluttering and Looking to Donate?

If you have any homegoods, tools, shoes, clothes you are looking to donate, check out this list of resources you can go to to donate your things!

When completing a move, decluttering and donating old things not only is helpful for you to become more organized but it makes the packing and unpacking process a little easier!

Not only will you feel better and more on top of things, you are also supporting and giving back to your community. That is what we like to call a nice win-win situation.

NYC Organizations open to donations

DonateNYC is an organization that makes it easier for New Yorkers to “donate and find second hand clothes, shoes, accessories, and textiles” easily.

Not limited to NYC residents, DonateNYC is open to nonprofit community organizations as well if they are looking for donations.

New York Cares is an organization that drops off second hand clothes to charities in order to reach out to men, women, and children in need around NYC.

Their annual coat drive has accumulated and distributed 2 million winter coats to New Yorkers in need over the past 30 years.

Beyond the many organizations and nonprofits that accept donations to distribute to New Yorkers in need, you can also bring your items for donation to a church or a class Goodwill Store and Donation Center. Regardless of where you drop your items off, decluttering your space through donating items is an excellent way to prep for you upcoming move! Check out where you can drop off your donations to help out New York Cares.

Don’t do it yourself!

In the midst of Pinterest and Instagram DIY videos, you may be considering a Do-It-Yourself move.

While this approach may be great and creative for some endeavors, DIY moving is just not the best of choices.

With heavy lifting, lots of planning, and many potential problems that may arise, choosing a moving company to handle everything is your best bet.

Heavy Lifting

Don’t underestimate the amount of belongings you own!

The mere size of furniture and the weight that packed clothes adds up to can be overwhelming and sometimes just impossible to move on your own.

Add that onto the obstacle of a few sets of NYC apartment stairs and you will be regretting your DIY choice.

Braha professionals will handle any and all lifting so you don’t have to break your back.

Remember, moving is supposed to be an exciting time, so leave all the hard work for us.

Lots of Planning

Coordinating the logistics to get from point A to point B can cause major headaches. There are also details of organizing moving trucks and making sure they are packed efficiently.

Once you arrive at your destination, you will want the unpacking process to be as smooth as possible.

This is why Braha professionals will pack your belongings and boxes in the truck in the most efficient way for moving into your new residence or office space.

Unexpected Problems

When you are in the middle of a move, the last thing you want to worry about is handling large, awkward and heavy furniture - stressing that your measurements were off and your couch actually will NOT be fitting through the door.

These unexpected problems are stressful to handle on your own.

Braha professionals not only have the experience of these types of issues but also have the expertise on how to react and solve these situations.

It is easy to be bombarded by the abundant amount of choices available for you. Finding a new place in the city is a stressful task already.

Preparing yourself for it can be just as daunting, if not more.

When looking at your options, it is important to think about who knows the city the best, who will be the most supportive, and who has the most experience.

How do I choose a moving company?

Choosing a company is easy when Braha has over 20 years of experience as NYC movers.

Our movers will be there each step of the way, from packing, transporting, the heavy lifting, and all the steps in between.

At the end of the day, Braha is simply here for you to prevent and solve any issues during your move. It will make your move much more of a stress free experience.

Check to See if the Company is Certified and Insured

Beyond our experience, we are a certified and licensed moving Company. Through the New York Department of Transportation and the U.S. Department of Transportation, Braha is licensed for all moves from local to long distance.

What is a Certificate of Insurance? Do I Need One?

When preparing for your move, it is important to make sure all the details are worked out. One of the most important can be a Certificate of Insurance (COI). A Certificate of Insurance is a document from a moving company’s insurance company.

It establishes the insurance of the moving company and outlines the uses and conditions of the insurance. It includes simple information like the name of the moving company and the street address of the property, but it is extremely important.

Most NYC residential buildings require a COI to insure their own property

Typically, building owners or managers of the property do not want to be held liable for any damages that may occur on the premises during the moving process.

If it is required, you and your moving company will not be allowed on the premises if you do not have the necessary documentation and COI.

Not having all of this straightened out can create delays for your move. Let Braha help you sort it out!
