New York: Cross Country Moving Guide

Are you ready to switch coasts? You’re not sure which one has better reviews? What if I told you that our experts from Cross Country Moving Company crafted a neat list of things you should know before moving out of New York and relocating to Los Angeles. Both NYC and LA have their own distinctive features and qualities, both have a lot to show off, but here are some facts you will need to bear in mind if you decide upon long distance moving. We don’t wish to scare you or anything, there are just so many details to pay attention to, and if you want to find out more, don’t shy away from giving us a call. Cross Country Moving Company is there to make sure your transition goes smoothly and safely.

From our perspective, this comparison looks a little like the clash of titans, and it is difficult to even assume which one will prevail. We will try to take all aspects of life into account here, so buckle up, it’s bound to be an enthralling ride. 

The weather

It’s safe to say that there’s no contest here. Weather in LA will forever be sunny and bright, while NYC experiences more than an occasional storm.The average maximum temperatures in these cities differ greatly, LA’s 75.2 degrees Fahrenheit compared to 62.6 that is the maximum average in New York. Los Angeles also accounts for a lot less rainy days annually, meager 36, compared to 122 days of precipitation that New Yorkers experience during a course of one year.


Let’s put it this way. You won’t be presented with many outrageous choices if you decide to move to LA for school and expertise. The city of New York will give you 18 different opportunities and university choices, variety of educational facilities and everything that goes with it. 

Transportation and population

The less congested of the two, LA has a population of just under 4 million, compared to NYC’s 8.5 million. Naturally, the population density is way higher in NYC. For a more comfortable, less crowded lifestyle, with enough space in public transportation, choose LA. The cost of a single ticket here is also cheaper, in addition to monthly transport ticket, which can save you more than 30 dollars. On the other hand, New Yorkers will have to brag about higher salaries. 


It would be a tough one if you love both the urban sprawl of the city on East coast and palm beaches, picturesque hills and suburban mansions of the West coast gem. NYC could appear a little claustrophobic, and it lacks the lake and mountains with lush forests and waterfalls that Angelenos find nearby. 


A dollar in LA, turns out, brings more to the plate, as well as more square feet of rental properties. We’ve already mentioned the lower prices of transportation fees, and public places that require a fee to get in are also more pocket friendly.
There are many, many more reasons why you should consider both cities, and why you might get compelled to move there, but we have tried to gather the bare essential ones now. After this pondering is done, and you decide on moving, we will be waiting ready to take you to your destination of choice. Our services even include auto shipping, interstate moving and storage as well as moving help, just to name a few.
