Helpful Information for Moving and Living in Brooklyn, NY

U-Haul has locations in every borough in the tri-state area and more than 30 within Brooklyn itself. Here are a few tips that may help you when moving to the Brooklyn borough.

  • Avoid broker fees. Paying a broker a percentage to show you an apartment is an expense you can avoid. If you start searching for a place to live early enough and do research on the city, houses, apartments and cost of living; you’re already ahead of the game.
  • Self-storage in Brooklyn. If you have a lot of belongings, you may want to look into renting a self-storage unit to store things you don’t use every day but don’t want to get rid of.
  • Cost of living. Comparable to most cities in America, it seems like almost everything is just a bit more expensive in Brooklyn. Be prepared to pay more for even the little things such as morning coffee.
