New York City is a town of movers, and many of us move every few years. But there are lots of details to think about every you pack up.
For example, what if you’ve found a great place, signed the lease, but failed to notice how narrow the left turn is out of the elevator? People rarely measure all the twists and turns that movers will have to navigate once moving day arrives.
NY Couch Doctor -- the latest subject of our Real.Est.List Spotlight series -- is exactly what it sounds like: An on-call contractor that literally takes apart your furnishings in order to move them from one location to another.
According to NYCD, most clients call while their furniture is in storage, because it just couldn’t fit in the elevator, or worse, it’s still sitting in the street out front after trying to get inside. Others have their furniture delivered straight from the store to NY Couch Doctor for disassembly and final delivery.
How it works
For a fixed price that starts at $250 (custom pieces typically cost more), a contractor or a crew of contractors will come over, carefully disassemble your loft bed, priceless antique armoire, that gorgeous sofa that you bought from ABC Carpet & Home, or even last week’s steal from Craigslist.
