NYC Apartment Moving Checklist

So you decided to move to the Big Apple, eh? Congrats, and welcome to the city! Your first order of business is to find a place to live. Keep our apartment moving checklist close at hand to easy your search!

When you think about it, packing involves cardboard boxes. And a lot of plastic tape. Katz Moving only uses recycled plastic materials and crates – which are friendly to the environment!

Perhaps the coolest, and most customer-friendly service, this company provides is their Stuff Cam. Thanks to technology, you can watch your items be loaded, transported, and unloaded in real time – right from a Katz Moving truck!
