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 Philadelphia to any part of NYC 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

It’s no secret that the cost of living in New York City is high compared to Philadelphia. You can expect to pay at least $3,000 for an apartment or house if you want to live in a decent part of the city. However, there are ways to save money when living in New York. If you work in retail or some other low-paying job, consider moving into an apartment that is near public transportation hubs like subway stations or bus stops.


A wide variety of housing options are available for people moving to New York City. If you’re looking for something cheap but decent, you might want to consider living in either Harlem or the Bronx. Both of these areas have some great apartment complexes that can fit your budget without sacrificing too much in terms of comfort and style. If you want something more upscale but affordable, then Midtown Manhattan is definitely where you should be moving!

Job opportunities

If you’re thinking about moving to New York City, then chances are you have a job lined up before making a move. But what kind of jobs can you expect to find in NYC? Well, there are many employment opportunities in New York that you may not be aware of if you aren’t from here. For example, there are many more non-profit organizations in New York than anywhere else in the country. There is also a great deal of diversity when it comes to employment opportunities here. There are jobs for people of all different backgrounds, whether you have a degree or not!

And if you want to save some money, several public school systems offer free education, including college tuition, when applicable. Some of the best schools in NYC include The Dalton School, Brearley, and Spence. And some of the best universities are Columbia University, New York University, and Cornell.


The transportation system in New York is one of the best in the country, so you will be able to get around for less if you live close enough to public transportation. The New York transportation system consists of the subway, buses, and taxis. The subway is the most efficient way to get around New York City. There are six lines that run on the IND Eighth Avenue Line (A, C, E, 1/2/3/4/5), which connect all throughout Manhattan and into Brooklyn as well. These trains can get you anywhere within 25 minutes or less.


The nightlife in New York City is one of the best out there and makes living here very enjoyable. Some bars and clubs stay open late into the night and provide their patrons with various entertainment options, including live music and comedy shows. If you want something more low-key but still fun, then there are also many great boardwalk activities that you can do, like taking a ride on the Ferris wheel at Coney Island.


New York has a very diverse population that includes people from all over the world.
