Amherst, NY Movers


Amherst Moving Company

Amherst, NY is a small town located just outside of Buffalo in northwestern New York. The area is best known for its charming small-town vibe, lush, tree-lined streets and safe, friendly neighborhoods.

Before you work with a local Amherst moving company to relocate to Amherst, it’s important to get an idea of the community feel. In Amherst, the majority of the population is made up of singles and married couples between 25-45. While one-third of the population is comprised of families, the majority of residents here are not parents.

Amherst is a fairly affluent area, with a median household income of $77,960, compared with the new York median of $62,909. At the same time, homes in Amherst are reasonably priced, with a median sales price of $186,600. In comparison, the median for the rest of New York is more than $300,000! When budgeting for your new home, remember to take into account the price of professional movers in Amherst.

Like much of upstate New York, Amherst enjoys a full four seasons, including hot, muggy summers and bitterly cold winters. The Greater Buffalo area is also known for getting large amounts of snow, and in fact, receives more than 94 inches of snow every year. If you are planning a move during the winter months, be sure to talk with your Amherst moving company about snow plans and back-up availability.
