Let our moving experts help you relocate across state lines
Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, our courteous movers will expertly pack you in one day and move you on another day for long distance moves within 500 miles of NYC. However, depending on the size of the move, how well prepared you are and the distance you are travelling, we can also complete the move in one day. Some larger moves will take more than two days.
We can provide overnight storage at Extra Space Storage, where we also park our fleet. We don’t charge by volume or weight, but by the hour. Whether you’re moving within or beyond New York State, let our moving experts help you relocate within 500 miles of NYC:
- Long Island
- Upstate NY – Orange, Putnam, Sullivan, Ulster and Dutchess Counties
- From NYC to DC
- NYC to Boston
- NYC to Philly
- NYC to Pittsburgh
- NYC to Connecticut
- NYC to New Jersey
- NYC to Maine, Virginia, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, Ohio
Because we love both NYC and going to new places, we don’t outsource any part of our long distance move operations within 500 miles of NYC. The same team that packs you for the move will be there with you in the end to unpack.
For moves down the I-95 Corridor to South Carolina, Georgia and Florida; and across the I-40 & I-80 Corridors to points West, we have nurtured strategic partnerships with private carriers. We pack and load in NYC and they deliver with the same care and attention to detail you have come to expect from JP Urban Moving. And our outstanding friendly customer service will see you from door to door.
What to expect on your Long Distance Move
What happens the day before the move?
As with local moves, the day before your move, you’ll receive a text confirmation from dispatch. In the hour leading up to the move, dispatch will send a group text linking you, the driver and the foreman via which you can all communicate during the course of the move.
What happens on day one of the move?
Dispatch will text you upon arrival of the crew, and will continue to text throughout the moving process to make sure everything is going well and to smooth out any wrinkles. After the crew has arrived and parked the truck, the foreman will come to your apartment/home to complete the paperwork, which is essentially comprised of clocking in and confirming your valuation choice. Next, the crew will prep the building as necessary, checking for pre-existing damage to the building, the apartment and your belongings. After getting supplies from truck, we will pack, disassemble and wrap as required before loading boxes, then furniture, onto the truck. Just before departing for overnight storage at Extra Space, we will check to ensure that everything to be moved has been loaded, and there is no damage.
What happens on day two?
Bright and early, the truck will depart Brooklyn. At the new location, we will prep the building as necessary, while checking for pre-existing damages. After unloading furniture and boxes, we will unwrap furniture and re-assemble, position and unpack as required. Lastly, we will clean up and ask you to check the truck to ensure that everything has been unloaded before settling up and heading back to Brooklyn.
We are responsive to online estimate requests, during which questions are answered timely. Once a job is booked, you decide what level of valuation is appropriate for the move, after which all building issues are addressed, including issuance of Certificates of Insurance (COIs), deadlines, elevator windows, floor protection requirements, etc. Finally, the move is put on our schedule.Learn More About What To Expect
What Happy Customers Say
Used JP Urban Moving to move from NYC to Philadelphia. Sal and crew were very professional and extremely careful with my belongings. The dispatcher was in constant communication and made the process very easy. I would recommend JP Urban Moving to any that is move across the street or to a different state. Great job guys!!
- Gino P. New York, NY
They moved me from a one bedroom in NY to a two bed in DC. From start to finish they were great. They were easy to communicate with and gave good quotes. It was easy to talk to them about details of the move. I've never felt like I've had an easy move before. These guys are great. Hire them. Seriously - stop looking for other companies and just hire these guys right now.
- Alice F. New York, NY
I was somewhat skeptical about all the 5 star reviews, but these guys more than earn it! We had a move from New Haven, CT to Ridgewood and they arrived on the dot at 8:30 AM. They brought two trucks and six men and finished up at 11:30PM with 9 men unloading and unwrapping with never a lack of cheerfulness and concern. I heartily recommend them!
- Hank P. Queens, NY
These guys are amazing! I went with them on recommendation of a friend for my move from NYC to PA. From first contact with Chris for estimate and scheduling, to the last box being delivered, I have nothing but great things to say. They were on time, very professional and friendly, hard working, fast working, efficient. Mine was a complicated move, but they handled it beautifully. They took better care of my belongings than I do! I strongly recommend these guys -- they are the best there is.
