★★★★★
We’d give them 50 stars if we could. Matt and his crew moved us yesterday from a 5th floor walkup apartment in Manhattan to a house 100 miles away. They made what could have been a difficult day for us into a total pleasure. Extremely professional, careful, competent, beyond the call of duty– in a word, perfect. And at a great rate. Pre-move communication was also prompt, friendly and accurate.

Although moves outside the city may also be considered local, we generally label moves within New York City’s five boroughs as “local moves“. We service all areas of the city. We consider anything outside the five boroughs to be a “long distance move”. This doesn’t mean you’ll pay more, necessarily– the local vs. long-distance classification is for our internal scheduling purposes.

Local Moving Services

The average NYC resident moves every six months. As residents of the city ourselves, we know a thing or two about moving efficiently in and between all five boroughs. We take pride in our ability to anticipate challenges unique to the Big Apple, which less-experienced companies may not be equipped to handle. We are seasoned locals who know how to navigate the city efficiently and safely.

NYC to and from Boston

Boston is our second most serviced metropolitan area on the east coast. We regularly help families and businesses transport belongings from one city to the other, and often back again. We’re familiar with the quickest routes, and we know how to avoid traffic. The commute associated with these routes is usually between 4 and 5 hours. Read more about our Boston moving services.

NYC to and from Philadelphia

The route between NYC and Philadelphia, PA typically takes about an hour, and usually not more than two. It’s a well-traveled route, and we often help individuals, families, and businesses relocate from one city to the other. We’ve found I-95 to be the most consistently reliable route from one to the other, but we’re always ready to detour if there’s anticipated traffic. Read more about our Philadelphia moving services.

NYC to and from Baltimore and Washington D.C.

Transport from NYC to Washington, DC, or vice versa, is estimated at 4 to 5 hours via I-95. At the moment, Washington, DC is the southern-most point of our service area. This means if you’re looking for transport to Virginia, North Carolina, and other southeastern areas of the country, you’ll have to look elsewhere. We’re happy to make a referral to a trusted partner in the industry. Fill out our quote form and we’ll point you in the right direction. Read more about our Washington D.C. moving services.
