    Moving to New York from Toronto can be an exciting and challenging experience.

    There are many reasons why people choose to make this move, including better job opportunities and a prestigious career position, a change in lifestyle, or simply wanting to be closer to family and friends.

    Regardless of the reason, there are a few things that you should keep in mind when making the transition from Toronto to New York.

    One of the biggest differences between Toronto and New York is the cost of living.

    Pros and Cons of Living in New York


    • You will get a lot of job opportunities here.
    • There are many things to do in this city, which makes it interesting and exciting to live in.
    • The public transportation system is very good.
    • New York has good schools and learning institutions
    • The health systems are quite advanced and appropriate


    • The cost of living is high, so you need to have a good financial plan in place
    • The weather is quite unpredictable and it can be quite cold in winter
    • There is a lot of noise and pollution in this city, so it can be tough to find peace

    Best Locations for Moving from Toronto to New York

    If you're moving from Toronto to New York, you'll want to choose a location that's right for you. There are many different neighbourhoods in New York, each with its unique character. Some of the most popular areas for new arrivals include:

    • Brooklyn
    • Manhattan
    • Queens
    • Chelsea

    • The Upper West Side

    When choosing a neighborhood, it's important to consider your budget, lifestyle, and interests. Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan are all great options for those looking for a lively and vibrant city experience.

    Moving Yourself vs. Hiring a Professional Moving Company

    Thinking about moving on your own? There is no real financial benefit when you do a long-distance move yourself from Toronto to New York by renting a mover's truck. And here's why:

    • Rental is more expensive. When you rent a moving truck, you have to return it to the same place it was picked up. Otherwise, you'll pay a lot more than you expect. 
    • Assistance in packing and loading: you need experience in packing your belongings, loading it into the truck, and securing the boxes. And also several pairs of hands, because it's almost impossible to do it alone! Otherwise, you'll be stressed trying to fit everything in the truck to get your stuff in one piece!
    • Most of the roads to New York are toll roads. You can expect to spend at least a few hundred US dollars on it. Also, it is not a rare occasion to run into some wildlife while driving. Deer are very active there, especially during the nighttime.
    • Traffic and parking issues. Driving in New York is hectic. You need skills and a lot of patience. You can avoid all this hustle by hiring professionals.
    • Custom procedures are quite complicated and can be costly. Imagine, for example, that you need to move a piano. We, at High Stream Moving, know how to avoid any customs delays and problems.

    Also, consider all the possible problems that can arise during a long trip from Toronto to New York:

    1. Flat tire.
    2. Engine problems.
    3. Unforeseen situations on the roads.
    4. Shortage of gas supply or misculation.
    5. Difficult weather conditions (blizzard, ice, etc).

    Imagine if any of the above happened to you in the middle of nowhere without phone service!

    High Stream Moving offers the best prices in the market by combining multiple loads that go in the same direction. Give us a call now for the best moving rates!

    If you're still thinking about driving a rental truck yourself for cross border moving from Toronto to New York, just make sure it's cheaper and safer than hiring professionals who have done it many times.
