Moving you from New York to any location in Washington, D.C.


If you ever read moving company reviews, you could notice that #1 reason why people experience issues when moving long distance is that their moving company outsources the delivery to other transportation companies and therefore loses control over the stuff.

In a situation like that the moving company can’t know where the stuff is and when exactly it will be delivered.

That is why at Roadway Moving we have our own trailers and we do not outsource delivery to others.

We can move you directly from NYC to any part of Washington, D.C. and you can rest assured that your stuff will be packed safely, GPS tracked during the whole move and delivered on time.

Cost of living

A one-bedroom apartment costs around $1,800 per month, while a two-bedroom apartment goes up to $2,300. However, the good news is that the salaries offered in this city are much higher than in any other state or country. Compared with NYC, you can save some money with utilities, health care, transportation, and housing since the capital’s cost of living is around 35% less than in the city that never sleeps.


The average cost of housing in the home of the Washington Wizards is $550,000 compared to $700,000 in NYC. A two-bedroom apartment in NYC usually goes around $2,049 monthly, while in D.C., for sometimes even bigger apartments, you can pay about $1,665. Also, if you decide to buy a home in Washington, remember that D.C. has a 0.545% tax on assessed value.

Job opportunities

One of the most noticeable differences between these two cities is their job growth. D.C. offers a variety of federal government jobs, as well as education, technology, and health services. With the government hiring over 150,000 people. Being one of the biggest tech equipment consumers in the whole world, Washington’s family median income is around $96,000 higher than New York City’s $65,000.


With Georgetown, Howard, and American University by its side, Washington’s percentage of graduate or professional degree holders is the highest in the country at 70%. Washington offers some of the best education programs in the country. It is ranked 3rd on the top 10 list that attracts students with many political and professional organizations to join.


People in Washington usually use their cars, buses, or metro to get around. Uber and taxi services are well-systemized. Another perk of the availability of D.C. is that it can only take an hour to go on a road trip. On the other hand, if you want to take the bus, keep in mind that you pay based on entry and exit points. The only unfortunate thing about D.C. transportation is the metro that closes at night. No need to worry even if you’re a walker since they have a 98 walk score.

Fun times in Washington, D.C.

This is truly a place where you’ll understand what it means to be American. It’s hard not to while walking the same streets where all those historical moments and protests happened. Martin Luther King Jr.’s famous “I Have a Dream” speech, the White House, National Mall, the Washington Monument, Tidal Basin, and the Lincoln Memorial are only a few sights that make this city a historical legacy.
