How do I move out of an apartment in New York?

Pre-Apartment Move

  1. Begin by disposing of or donating any unwanted items. You can hire a junk removal company or donate items to a thrift store to declutter before your move.
  2. Create a checklist of items that need to be moved. Take note of large appliances and sofas that may be too heavy or awkward to move yourself. Enlist the help of a friend or family member for assistance.
  3. Measure your exits, entryways, and large furniture to determine which items will fit through doorways and which may need to be disassembled.

Disassembling Your Furniture…

Bed Frame

  1. Start by stripping the bed and placing all bedding in a moving box.
  2. Remove the base and mattress, which should be wrapped in a protective mattress bag.
  3. Unscrew the headboard and footboard from the bed frame, and mark the top of the bolt or screw with colored tape for easy reassembly. Mark the corresponding hole with the same colored tape.
  4. If the bed has slats instead of a base, roll up or unscrew each slat individually.


  1. Remove all upholstery, including cushions, pillows, and arm covers.
  2. Unscrew the arms from the couch using a Phillips head screwdriver.
  3. Remove the frame from the seat by unscrewing all six screws (three on each side), allowing the front side of the sofa to lift off.
  4. If the couch has legs, unscrew them with a screwdriver to reduce the dimensions.

While it may be tempting to save money by disassembling and moving items yourself, the associated stress and risk of damage may not be worth it. Our expert Staten Island movers at Drennan Movers are trained in the assembly, disassembly, and transportation of furniture. Let us handle the hard work while you relax and enjoy a hassle-free move.
