Loading & Unloading Services in NYC

Every move is unique, and sometimes while you may not need a full service mover, you still need a little extra help. Whether you are renting your own truck, moving with a POD or simply relocating items within or outside your home, our team is here to provide you with expert loading and unloading support. Here’s a few ways we can help:


Loading or Unloading Your Own Truck

Some customers choose to rent their own truck to move themselves. While this offers some flexibility and its own benefits, the logistics of loading and unloading can be challenging. Our skilled movers can:

  • Properly disassemble, prepare, and load your furniture and packed boxes onto your rented truck.
  • Provide expert packing services, especially for fragile items, art, and other valuables.
  • Assist with unloading and setting up your items in your new residence.


Loading or Unloading PODs

Some customers use PODs for long distance moving. While this can be a cost-effective solution, it also comes with strict time frames and longer delivery schedules. We have extensive experience in handling PODs and can help you with:

  • Preparing and loading your furniture and packed boxes onto a POD within the designated drop-off time/schedule. 
  • Ensuring everything is securely packed to withstand the journey.
  • Unloading and placing your items in your new home when the POD arrives.


In-House Moving and Same Location Moves

Renovating your home or office? Need to move items from one floor to another or to a temporary storage? Our in-house and same location moving services are perfect for:

  • Moving furniture and items to different floors or rooms during renovations.
  • Ensuring everything is moved safely and efficiently, minimizing disruption to your daily life.
  • If you need temporary storage, we can move your belongings to a storage unit and return them once your renovation is complete.

Loading & Unloading Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some frequently asked questions (FAQs) that can help address common concerns when it comes to hiring professional movers for assistance with loading and unloading trucks, PODs, and handing in-house or same building moves:

  1. How do you prepare furniture for moves into Trucks, Pods or Storage?

Before placing furniture in trucks/PODs or storage, we disassemble and carefully protect them using proper materials such as double corrugated cardboard boxes and paper pads (instead of blankets) and bubble wrap. If you need certain items to be retrieved first/quickly, we will be sure to load them last so that they are accessible.

  1. How do you handle furniture for in-house or same location moves? 

When relocating furniture within or around your home or office, we ensure your items are properly protected to prevent scratches, scuffs, or damages. While most items can be moved as they are, we may need to disassemble and reassemble large furniture and wrap them for safe transport. During renovations, customers can request floor and wall protection in specific areas. Please let us know in advance if you need this. 

  1. Why do you bring your truck if we are not using you to move?

We bring our truck to transport our crew and all necessary supplies and equipment such as dollies, moving blankets, tools for disassembly/reassembly and boxes and packing materials. This ensures we have everything needed to safely and efficiently work on your job. Besides, it would be challenging for our crew to use public transportation to carry all these materials with them. 

  1. How do you handle time-sensitive POD loading and unloading?

POD companies will give you a 4-hour window slot to load or unload your items. We are experienced in working with the strict time frames set by POD companies and making sure all your items are handled within the schedule. However, we recommend that you book the morning slot for these types of moves, as we are able to guarantee arrival for morning jobs.

  1. Can I start my POD move in the afternoon? 

If you are booked for an afternoon job, the arrival time is based on when our crew completes the day’s morning job. So we would NOT recommend this option as we cannot guarantee the exact arrival time to afternoon jobs. While on some days, we have opportunities to conduct afternoon jobs, they are suitable for small local (Brooklyn-based) moves that do not have any deadlines or schedules. Given that PODs have a very strict loading and unloading deadline, you will be better off booking a morning slot or finding alternative support.
