• The Humane Society of Westchester’s Holiday Adoptions

    ny-westchester-12-29-16

    While some animals get quickly adopted from the human society, for others it can take quite some time before they find a home. For the rest of December, the Humane Society of Westchester will be offering discounted adoption fees for their “Lonely Heart” animals (any pet staying there more than 4 months or any pet 7 or older). If you’re looking for a pet, stop by at the humane society before the end of the month and help a lonely animal find a new home. Once you’ve got a pet for your new home, give Seamen’s a call and we’ll help both of you move there!

  • Excellent 10 Tips before you move

    1. Get rid of things you don’t need- this is the perfect time to clear clutter.
    2. Make a list of things you need to do prior to do the move.
    3. Take pictures of all your rooms to remember where everything was and for memories.
    4. Take pictures of the new place and decide where you want everything to go.
    5. Set a date with Seamen’s Moving for an onsite Survey and choose the best day for your move. Call them at 203-374-3334.
    6. If you pack some of the things yourself, pack the boxes of the same room, label the boxes with color coded stickers and keep them together. It is better to use color stickers than only writing on the boxes, it will make your life much easier when you unpack.
    7. Stop buying perishable food 1 week before the move and defrost your refrigerator.
    8. Make plans to disconnect all hoses from dryer, washer, dishwasher and other appliances.

  • Nolita

    nolita

    Nolita, which is a neighborhood in Manhattan, was once considered part of neighboring Little Italy and even had its name derived from being just north of Little Italy (orth of Little Italy).  Many Italians have moved out of Manhattan which has caused Nolita to lose some of its old Italian flare.  The neighborhood is now home to some of New York’s wealthiest population that wants a quiet neighborhood in southern Manhattan to reside in.  Apartments are sold and rented at a premium in Nolita.  For that reason, the demographic in this upscale Manhattan neighborhood is shifting towards more young, successful professionals.  Is Nolita your next neighborhood? If so, call us to help you relocate into your new home.
