The short answer is, it’s best to ask. You will need to confirm with your building’s property management to see if a COI is required for your move. Most buildings in NYC need one in order to protect their property for damages. You can also check your move-in paperwork to see if one is required. Your building management team may provide you with a COI template that outlines the information they want included. When you call us to schedule your move, make sure you mention that a COI is required but it will be one of our top questions when finalizing your booking (You will also receive a COI Request from your moving consultant after booking your job). This is one factor that can cause an unnecessary delay as your movers will not be allowed to enter the building on the day without it. Be proactive and find out if you need a COI to make sure the day goes off without a hitch.
