Here at Unpakt, you know that we are committed to making your moving process as smooth as possible by gathering all the information you need in one convenient, consolidated place. Hiring a moving company is one of the most important and pivotal decisions you’ll make in your moving process — and moving company reviews are a great place to go to when you’re looking for a trustworthy mover to make it all go right. We compiled this list of the best moving companies based on actual customer reviews to honor May’s best movers. Big-city residents know the importance of reliable movers, so all of this month’s moving companies are based in or near New York City. Here they are!
Active Moving Inc.
Based in Brooklyn, New York, Active Moving Inc. services all five boroughs — and they know the ins and outs of navigating a moving day in New York. They can handle your move no matter how complex and are prepared to move delicate things like pianos, artwork, or even dismount your art and electronics from the walls.
Jacob had this to say: “The movers showed up on time and were very quick and efficient with their work.” Straightforward and simply put, a great experience.
Grand Merci Moving
Based in New York, New York, Grand Merci Moving has five trucks available — ensuring that you use only as big of a truck as you really need for your move and taking care that you have the proper space for all of your belongings. They will disassemble and reassemble your furniture, pack your art, and do their best to make sure you “feel that you got more than what you paid for”.
Sonia used Grand Merci for her move to New Jersey, saying, “Movers were good, communicated clearly about their arrival (they called when they were in traffic and realized they’d be later than expected). Movers were efficient and quick, but did not damage anything – even our electric keyboard, which we had been concerned about, was perfectly fine after the move. We were satisfied with how they wrapped our furniture (plastic wrap, blankets, tape, etc.) and placed things where they belonged in our new place (they asked for the direction where we wanted things to go).”
Based in Staten Island, Go To Moving & Storage was started by an entrepreneur who’d been working in the moving business since he was 17. He made a commitment to do it better, with his own standards and his own company — and his years of experience have made Go To Moving a reputable company in New York.
Ashish moved from Princeton, NJ, to Fairfax, VA, and had this glowing review: “Go To Moving were incredible consummate professionals. They came on time in the morning, packed up our fully furnished 3 bedrooms, drove 4 hours and unpacked it all. Amazing and highly recommend these guys. Can’t really say enough.”
American Power Moving Inc.
A Brooklyn-based company, they come highly recommended by Yelp reviewers. They’re known for their friendly attitudes and their ability to help out in a pinch, with professional packing and wrapping for all of your precious belongings.
Jenny says, “I used American Power Moving twice already, once for my house and once for my business. Mike and his crew are very professional, reliable, and kind. The guys arrived 6 in the morning, very energetic and ready to work. The guys packed everything very carefully and I have a lot of fragile stuff for my business. The price was very affordable and the service was amazing.”
Sven Moving, Inc.
Based in Brooklyn, Sven Moving, Inc. has a funny story — they are a crew of artists, musicians, and comedians whose work as movers supports their passion for the arts. That also means that they are creative, positive, and cheerful movers who are committed to making sure each customer is fully satisfied.
Rutendo’s move with Sven went very well: “Sven Moving did an amazing job moving us. By far, this was the least stressful move I have experienced in NYC. Sven is great at communicating and is also quick to respond to all inquiries. The moving crew; Scott, Miko, and Brent, did such an amazing job. They were quick, professional, and arrived on time. I would recommend these movers to anyone and will definitely use them again.”
Good luck with your upcoming move, and check back next month for more top-notch movers.
