Relocation Allocation

Changing homes doesn’t have to be the worst day of your summer.

June is one of the busiest moving months of the year in New York. It’s one of the most unpleasant experiences of adult life, along with taxes and dental work, particularly if you have gonzo movers who show up late, gouge you on bubble wrap and boxes, then refuse any method of payment but cash. Paul Kennedy’s NYcityVAN moving service eases the agony. No job is too small, and his sympathetic, friendly staff, described on the quirky Website as “courteous, odor-free gentlemen,” are mostly writers, musicians, and artists. Which means they’ll appreciate your taste and get it safely to its next home (a two-bedroom intra-city move runs about $800 to $1,200; 917-664-9173).
