The Best Local Moving Company in New York
Moving, in general, is stressful, but moving in New York City is a triple threat. After all, you have to deal with the horrible traffic, hard-to-find parking, and difficult building management. It’s no wonder that many people would rather deal with rising rents than finding a new place to live. Luckily, we can make your moving experience a lot easier.
At Great Moving, our experienced and professional staff can make moving in NYC a snap. Simply call us and we’ll guide you through the process and our services. Most people are more than happy to just have us load and unload their belongings, but we also offer other options such as packing/unpacking, storage, plastic bin rentals, and moving supply purchases. We’re your one-stop-shop for all things moving.
Hiring movers at first might seem expensive and we’re not going to lie – it isn’t cheap. However, you receive a lot of benefits of hiring professionals:
- We have appropriate liability insurance so if anything gets damaged in our old or new place, we cover the costs.
- Should we receive a parking ticket, you will not be required to pay for it!
- Since the movers are doing the work, you don’t have to worry about potential injuries
- Our movers are highly trained in appropriate moving and packing protocols so there’s less chance of broken or damaged items
- We have experience moving in both elevator and walk-up buildings!
Our Local Moving Process in 4 Steps

Before you hire us, the first thing you should do is fill out our online form to receive your free quote. One of our moving specialists will contact you via phone or virtual home appointment to walk through your belongings. It’s important that you show us everything and let us know exactly what you need from us so we can provide you with an accurate quote. The more details you can provide, the better. Some things to mention include:
- Whether your old and new building is in an elevator building or walk-up. If you’re in a walk-up, let us know how many flights.
- If your old or new building will require a certification of insurance
- Your apartment size (studio, 1 bedroom, etc)
Get a Customized Move Plan
Once you receive the quote, it’s up to you to decide whether it fits into your budget or not. Our basic loading/unloading services are our most popular, but we do offer other services such as:
- Plastic bin rental
- Moving supplies purchase
Check through the services to see if any of them make sense for your move. Many of our customers like to add on the packing/unpacking services as it saves them a lot of time and stress. All we ask from you is to create an inventory of all your belongings so we can check to make sure we don’t miss anything on packing and unpacking. Even if you can’t afford using our full-service packing/unpacking option, we’ll work with you to pack specific rooms or areas that are challenging. We’re always happy to work within your budget so just give us a call and our moving specialist can figure out how we can make your moving experience hassle-free.
Manage Your Move
After you have signed the moving contract, we’ll get everything in place for you. If you need a certification of insurance for your buildings, our moving specialists will send them over to building management and set up any necessary elevator/freight entrance schedules to make sure we don’t run into any snags the day of the move. We’ll also find the appropriate crew for your move. A few days before moving day, we’ll reach out to you to let you know the time frame the movers will arrive at your current home to load your belongings. While packing, it’s a good idea to keep an inventory of all
Track Your Move
On moving day, you can easily track your move as all of our trucks are equipped with GPS. Our crew will always contact you if there are any delays due to traffic or inclement weather. If they haven’t gotten in touch, you can call our customer service line to see where they are or to ask for the foreman’s number so you can talk to them directly. Once they have arrived at your new home, always make sure that you have all your items by checking your inventory. If possible, check on the fragile items first to make sure they aren’t damaged. If they are, make sure to let us know as soon as possible! Once everything checks out, sign the bill of lading and make the final payment. Don’t forget to tip the movers for their hard work!
