NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--FlatRate Moving, one of the country’s most trusted, all-inclusive moving services for more than 20 years, today released a list of the trendiest New York City neighborhoods to move to this Spring. Using customer data from more than 35,000 moves, FlatRate compiled the most booming (and bustling) neighborhoods in the Tri-State area.
“Spring is always a fresh start for New Yorkers - and it’s the busiest time of year for the moving industry,” said Sharone Ben-Harosh, Founder of FlatRate Moving. “This year, we’re moving our customers into hot neighborhoods in Brooklyn where exciting construction projects such as luxury apartment buildings, trendy restaurants and family-friendly living are attracting movers of all ages and lifestyles. Areas like Soho and Tribeca have dropped in popularity - likely due to high rent and cost of living.”
To compile this list, FlatRate Moving compared more than 35,000 total requested moves from the last 12 months, year-over-year, to identify the neighborhoods with the highest percentage increase of movers. The top five most popular locations include:
1. Bushwick and Williamsburg (+38.6%)
2. Greenpoint (+37.7%)
3. Flatbush (+27.2%)
4. Central Harlem (+26.1%)
5. Northwest Queens (LIC) (+23.8%)
This spring, fewer New Yorkers are moving to Soho and Tribeca (-3.1%), Northwest Brooklyn (-3.0%), West Central Queens (-2.7%), East Harlem (-2.3%) and Downtown Manhattan (-1.1%).
“Moving is exciting, it shouldn’t be a burden - physically or financially,” said Ben-Harosh. “There are some best practices to make the process more seamless - for example, never move on a Friday, use professional moving boxes and don’t forget to reserve your building’s elevator and a parking spot. Preparation is also key – booking your move and beginning the packing process earlier means better rates and less stress.”
To help New Yorkers move this spring, FlatRate Moving is offering 40 percent off of box and packing material deliveries or 25 percent off packing services.
