There comes a time in everyone’s life that the fun-loving, beer-soaked couch you have had since your first college apartment isn’t going to cut it anymore. You want something nice, without breaking the bank. You want something contemporary. You want something that doesn’t smell like your 20’s.
If you’re lucky you might be able to find a winner on Craigslist, which in most cities is great: not so much in New York. The odds of having a car here, or even knowing someone who knows someone who has a car are very slim. New Yorkers walk, take public transit, or take cabs on those special occasions. But New Yorkers (at least most New Yorkers) don’t drive. Day-to-day this is an amazing gift. There is no traffic for you. There is no car insurance, or ridiculous gas prices. However, when you’re looking to move a big piece of furniture the subway isn’t going to cut it.
Fortunately, there is a company that has taken all these problems and solved them for us. AptDeco is not only a great place to find high quality used furniture at a reasonable price, but they will deliver it to you as well, sometimes even for free! While we will miss watching youngsters try and tote a couch 15 blocks, then up four flights of stairs, we are so glad we will never have to do it again. Here are some great pieces we found at a quick glance at AptDeco. Dainolite Coffee Table, $100. Jennifer Black Loveseat, $150. Ikea Bed, $145.
Whether you need to sell some old furniture that is still in great condition, or are in the market to buy some new stuff, this should definitely be your first stop. Check out all the categories and refurnish your entire place for pennies on the dollar. Moving furniture without a car has never been so easy.
