Manhattan Movers

We’re not your average Manhattan moving company. There’s a reason we’ve got a 5 star rating on Yelp and have been named Best New York Movers by New York Magazine. 

  • WE CAN TAKE ON ANY CHALLENGE: Whether it be a tight deadline, an unexpected snowstorm or a smaller-than-usual doorframe, our team is trained to handle all sorts of Manhattan-specific moving challenges. We’re experts at maneuvering busy sidewalks, narrow hallways, tiny elevators and even 6-floor walk ups, all while carrying your belongings with precision and care.  
  • WE PROTECT YOUR PROPERTY. We take great pride in how we handle our clients’ belongings, and that extends to how we treat your home. We take additional care to protect floors, walls, and corners when moving. We arrive with moving blankets, dollies and plastic wrap to ensure that nothing gets damaged during the move. 
  • WE COME PREPARED. No need to worry about packing supplies. We can deliver all the necessary packing materials (wardrobe boxes, book boxes, packing tape, bubble wrap etc) to your doorstep. We also can provide eco-friendly reusable moving bins upon request. 
  • WE’LL HANDLE THE COI. If your building requires a certificate of insurance (COI), we can help you file and submit all the required documents before the move. 
  • WE ALWAYS MEET DEADLINES: Moving in NYC can involve serious time constraints, especially when it comes to reserving elevators, vacating units and issuing the COI. We always arrive on time and work efficiently to meet all of our deadlines.
  • WE PREP YOUR FURNITURE FOR FREE: To ensure maximum safety throughout the move, our movers will securely wrap and protect large furniture pieces at no extra charge. 
  • WE ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE. We understand the stress of moving and keep ourselves readily available to our clients for any of their moving concerns. We are reachable before, during and after the move.
  • WE’RE A TIGHT-KNIT TEAM. We carry out all moves with special attention and supervision. As a smaller company, we pay attention to the details our competitors may overlook. Our movers complete a professional training course before they go out on the job, regardless of how long they’ve been in the industry. 
  • WE PROVIDE TRANSPARENT & PREDICTABLE PRICING: When you request a free quote, we provide a thorough and accurate moving estimate to avoid any surprises on moving day. We tailor our estimates to the specific requirements of your move. 
  • WE’RE PACKING PROS. When it comes to packing, sometimes it’s best to leave it to the experts! We can do partial packing services (for example, just packing up the kitchen and bathroom) or pack up absolutely everything if needed. 
  • WE LOVE OUR LOYAL CLIENTS: We enjoy watching our clients move onto new phases of their life and helping them get there. We not only value our loyal clients, we offer discounts for referrals and for those who move with us again.

Below you’ll find a selection of answers to frequently asked questions that may help you plan and arrange your move:

  • Do you provide hourly or flat rate estimates?

We provide hourly-based estimates with a 2-hour minimum charge. Flat rate pricing is also provided with limited availability, subject to seasonal conditions. Contact us for more information.

  • How far in advance should I contact you to book my move?

While we are sometimes available for last-minute requests and can handle any size jobs, we get booked very quickly. It’s better to contact us as early as possible, especially to book for prime moving dates like the end of the month, beginning of the month, or the 15th. Prime moving dates are often booked 3 – 4 weeks in advance.

  • Can I get a quick estimate/quote over the phone?

We do not provide quotes over the phone. Based on the information you submit on the estimate request form, we’ll prepare your quote and send it by email. Once you receive your estimate, we’re happy to review it with you further and answer any questions you may have.

If a question is not answered in our moving F.A.Q, contact us directly and we can assist you with any of your moving-related questions.
