Manhattan Moving Company & Storage Since 1993

Manhattan is the centerpoint of New York City, the hub where all the excitement happens. At times, that makes it feel like the centerpoint of the world, if not the universe. Not only is Manhattan where Oz Moving & Storage made our name, it’s where we’re based. We’ve been on every street, from Crosby St to Amsterdam Ave, Wall St to Riverside Dr, enough times to know our way around without Waze or Google Maps. We’re friends with all of the building managers of NY’s largest residential properties. After offering moving services in Manhattan for two decades, Oz understands the ins-and-outs of NYC’s busiest borough and is prepared for any kind of move on “the island” you may undertake.

Moving in Manhattan

For anyone changing homes, it doesn’t get more hectic than moving in Manhattan! The US Census estimates close to 70,000 people on average share each square mile of Manhattan, making it by far the most population dense region in the United States. All these people and things mean there’s activity going on everywhere. People who move in Manhattan have to evaluate their surroundings before they do just about everything. Every part of the process can be complicated for a would-be DIY mover. From acquiring a truck, navigating infamously NYC traffic, finding an adequate parking space, maneuvering through the small spaces of a typical apartment building, by yourself? And we didn’t even mention carrying your items up the stairs of those pesky walk-up buildings.

Oz Moving isn’t just a moving company; we’re a stress removing company. Once you call Oz, all your anxieties about moving in a place as crazy as Manhattan will quickly go away. With over 20 years of experience of moving in Manhattan, we know how to deal with everything this city can throw at you (and trust us, it’s a long list). Oz’s dedicated project managers will research the circumstances of your move to ensure nothing unexpected comes up at the last minute to hinder your moving day success. One call to our Manhattan offices at 212-452-6683 could be the end of your moving stresses.

Having OZ Moving and Storage move us was a great experience. They were on time, quick, and careful with our belongings. The best thing I can say is that when I move again they will be who I call.

Excellent moving experience! The movers arrived promptly and got right to work. I thought picking up from two locations would be stressful, but they made it easy. Will gladly consider them in future moves and recommend them to family and friends.

Moving Into A Studio Apartment

Manhattan living means space is at a premium. Sometimes, movers to Manhattan will have to sacrifice space to get their preferred location. Moving into a small studio isn’t a death sentence, though. Here’s a few ways to thrive in a smaller space:

  • Think Vertical - Use all 3 dimensions for storage! 
  • Get Versatile - Furniture with built in storage really comes in handy.
  • Downsize - Who needs all that stuff anyway?

Moving from Brooklyn to Manhattan

Out of the five boroughs, two seem to constantly spar with one another for greatness: Brooklyn and Manhattan. We are not taking sides, but when considering a move between the two boroughs, here is what you should know:

  • Manhattan has some of the best public schools throughout the city.
  • Manhattan has many art exhibits and wonderful museums.
  • The transit system is more centralized in Manhattan, translating into improved commutes.
  • Brooklyn is bigger, and more populated than Manhattan.
  • Owning a car and finding a parking space is easier in Brooklyn. More Brooklynites own a car than Manhattanites.

Moving from Manhattan to Westchester

Living in the suburbs can provide more real-estate space and a safer environment while saving you money. If you’re planning on moving from NYC to Westchester, here are a few things to consider:

  • Westchester has some of the best Public Schools in the country.
  • Houses in Westchester have more space and can offer your family direct access to a backyard.
  • Parts of Westchester county are some of the safest neighborhoods in the country
  • The proximity to the city allows easy access to urban amenities, and Metro-North transit system provides a convenient commute to New York City.
