Moving to Brooklyn, New York

Many New Yorkers decide, at some point, to take the pilgrimage from the expensive and overcrowded isle of Manhattan and move to the more peninsula-like borough of Brooklyn. And why not? Brooklyn is New York City’s hippest borough, and Oz Moving & Storage can help Manhattanites cross the bridge, say goodbye to high Manhattan rents and say hello to more space, serenity and soul in Brooklyn. Deciding to move might be hard, but moving to Brooklyn is easy with Oz Moving & Storage, the best Brooklyn moving company this side of the Hudson.  

Who is Oz Moving?

Oz Moving & Storage has been offering moving services within Manhattan, Brooklyn, and the rest of New York City for almost 25 years - since 1993. One of Oz Moving & Storage’s first outposts was on Greenpoint Avenue, by the John Jay Byrne Bridge, so we know Brooklyn very well. In our 20+ years of moving around the borough, Oz Moving & Storage has become one of the most trusted moving companies in Brooklyn.


Since its humble beginnings in ‘93, Oz Moving & Storage has grown from a single truck and a small group of employees to become the very best Brooklyn, NY moving company. Oz currently directs parts of our crew of over 200 employees with 50 trucks in and out of Brooklyn every day, treating each Brooklynite’s move as our most important. (Spread love, it’s the Brooklyn way!)

We used Oz Moving for a move from Brooklyn to Jersey City. Sebastian's team was fantastic and made a stressful moving process much easier and more organized than we've ever experienced.

Biking in NYC

Brooklyn is a lovely borough to explore on the seat of a bicycle. With plenty of bike lanes and greenways, most of Brooklyn could be considered a cyclist’s paradise. Thinking about doing some bike riding yourself? Here’s a few tips on biking in NYC from our friends at Brooklyn Bicycle Co. (Should we link to their site?)

  • Grab the vital accessories before riding: a helmet, bell, and lights (for nighttime rides).
  • Lock up your bike everywhere you go. Thieves can pop up even in unexpected places.
  • Riding along with traffic whenever possible. If need be, take the lane.
