It’s moving year in NYC


The number of those moving outside of New York City is up 50 percent.

It certainly didn’t start out this way. In mid-March, when the grim realities of Covid-19 became clear, moving companies braced for a slow season. “Right in the beginning, we weren’t sure if we were allowed to work, and a lot of businesses were in limbo,” said Daniel Norber, the owner of Imperial Movers, based in the West Village. “Everyone was wondering if they should close shop.”

But later that month, Gov. Andrew M. Cuomo announced that moving was considered an essential service. “Within 30 minutes of the announcement I got a flood of calls,” Mr. Jahn said. Business hasn’t slowed since, and movers expect the trend to continue through the fall.

“The first day we could move, we left,” said Jaime Welsh-Rajchel.
