Expert Guidance, Unmatched Care, and a Touch of Fun.

Teddy, your friendly neighborhood moving company.

Welcome to Teddy Moving, where we take the stress out of your move and replace it with a big bear hug of reassurance.

Our furry mascot, Teddy, is here to guide you through the bustling streets of New York City and ensure your move is as smooth as honey.

Follow our bear-y moving guide and move without surprises!

Step 1: Plan Like a Pro

At Teddy Moving, we know that a great move starts with great planning. Our comprehensive moving checklist will help you set a timeline and budget that fits your needs. Whether you’re a DIY enthusiast or prefer the expertise of professional movers, we’ve got you covered

Step 2: Declutter and Pack

Clear out the clutter and make room for the new! Sell, donate, or toss items you no longer need. Gather your packing supplies – boxes, tape, bubble wrap, and don’t forget the markers. Pack one room at a time and label your boxes. Remember, fragile items need extra love and care, just like our Teddy.

Step 3: Building Logistics

Reserve Elevators and Loading Docks

Moving in NYC often means dealing with high-rise buildings. Here’s the scoop:

  • Contact Building Management: Find out the moving policies and reserve the service elevator. Early birds get the worm (or in our case, the best time slots)!
  • Loading Dock: Secure a spot for your moving truck. No one likes a parking ticket on moving day.

Certificate of Insurance (COI)

Many buildings require a COI. Here’s how to handle it:

Please note that cash is the preferred method of tipping for our movers. While some customers may opt to include gratuity in the total cost of the move, providing cash directly to the movers ensures that they receive the full amount of your generous tip.

Step 4: Handle Utilities and Services

Change of Address

Notify the USPS, update your address with banks, insurance companies, and subscriptions. Don’t forget to tell friends and family about your new den!

Utilities

Arrange to disconnect or transfer your utilities. Set up new services in your new home – electricity, water, gas, and internet. Nothing says “home” like Wi-Fi.

New York through and through.

Moving in NYC can be an adventure, and we’re here to make it memorable for all the right reasons. Teddy Moving infuses a touch of the city’s unique spirit into every move we handle. So, while you focus on enjoying the vibrancy of NYC, we’ll handle the logistics, ensuring your local move is a seamless, New York-style transition.

Step 6: Settle In

Unpack Strategically

Start with essentials. Room by room, turn your new place into a cozy haven.

Utilities and Safety

Ensure all utilities are up and running. Install new locks, smoke detectors, and carbon monoxide detectors if needed.

Step 7: Post-Move Tasks

Update Documents

Update your driver’s license, vehicle registration, and voter registration. It’s the final step to making your new place truly home.

Explore Your New Neighborhood

Get to know the local spots – grocery stores, hospitals, and schools. Teddy recommends checking out the nearest parks for a bit of relaxation after the move.
