Unpakt is committed to making your moving process as smooth as possible by providing reliable information and a one-stop shop for all of your moving needs online. Hiring a moving company is arguably the most important step in planning a successful move after you’ve decided where to go — and moving company reviews are a great place to go when you’re looking for a trustworthy mover. We compiled this list of the top moving companies based on actual customer reviews to honor (and highlight!) this month’s best movers. Once again, New Yorkers know the importance of a good mover, so all of this month’s moving companies are based in the City. Here they are!
- TB Moving Inc., based in Brooklyn, NY, is all about financial transparency and taking the best possible care of your belongings as they can. With flat-rate fees, one month of free storage, and free packing of your fragile items, you’re guaranteed to have a smooth and straightforward moving experience.
Stefanie T. moved with TB Moving Inc., and she had this to say: “I had an awesome experience with this move! They were delicate with my fragile items and took great care to wrap up my furniture to ensure nothing happened during the transfer to the truck! I’d recommend TB Moving Inc. to any of my NY friends!”
- FlatRate Moving® has been in business for 25 years, moving people within New York as well as across the country — so they are highly experienced and have their moving process dialed. They also have flat rate moving packages to suit every need, so whether you’re moving your antique piano or a bunch of boxes, you won’t get hit with hidden fees. What’s more, if you need storage they’ll arrange to get your belongings to a climate-controlled, private facility that they own.
Megan moved from NYC to San Diego with FlatRate Moving® and says: “The movers themselves were excellent, fast, efficient and very thorough in wrapping everything very well. I was extremely happy with how the move itself went, they arrived exactly on time and had everything done in about an hour. Overall, I’m very happy with Flat Rate thus far, and would recommend them to anyone making a long distance move.”
- Dyno Moving Inc. is based in Staten Island and was started by a group of moving professionals who saw a need for a different kind of moving company: one focused solely on the needs of its customers. They won’t charge you extra for last-minute moving, and they pride themselves on being fast and efficient — meaning less waiting around for you.
Dawn agrees: “These guys are fantastic! Just moved yesterday – from Queens to upper Manhattan. The movers arrived at 9 and were completely done with the move by noon. They were really easygoing and friendly. They took great care of my furniture. The price was just what I expected based on the original estimate. I couldn’t have asked for a more stress-free experience. Highly recommended.”
- Elate Moving is based right in the center of New York, but also has locations in New Jersey, Connecticut, and Toronto — so whether you’re looking to move within the city or longer distance, this highly experienced company can take good care of you. They will take care of crating your precious artwork, and they can also facilitate corporate moves — a one-stop shop right in Manhattan.
Selena sang their praises on Yelp: “Professionalism and expertise! Elate Movers are #1. I have never seen a more professional team of movers than Slava, Steve, and Boris. They were early, organized, and took extreme care in preparing my furniture for transport. I was amazed at the amount of care these gentlemen took wrapping and preparing my irreplaceable pieces. My furniture arrived in perfect condition. Zero mishaps and they even managed to get my 7-foot solid wood armoire into the bedroom (I am still amazed).”
- Lift NYC Movers is a family owned and operated moving company based in the West Village of NYC. Because they only do local moves, they excel at navigating the high rises and oddly-shaped buildings of New York. They’ll bring plenty of movers to do the job, and offer flat rate pricing so there are never any hidden fees.
Christine had a great experience: “These guys were great. They sent five movers and were professional and did everything they could to protect my stuff and try to get my gigantic couch out of the apartment. I would highly recommend them!”
