Long Island, NY Local Movers

Nobody likes packing. Except for us! Our local Long Island movers understand that packing can be extremely stressful, and take up precious time that you’d rather spend thinking about your new home and chapter in life. So we offer a full range of packing services to our clients, from offering packing supplies to DIYers, to partial packs of difficult rooms like the kitchen. Or, if you want to relax completely, we can pack the whole house, down to the smallest knick knacks on your vanity.

We use the best Long Island packing supplies to ensure all your precious belongings arrive at your new home damage-free. We’ll carefully wrap every glass, photo frame and vase, so you’ll never have to worry about a thing. Have large, unwieldy items?

When we move your piano, it’ll arrive ready to play. Plus, we’ll set it up wherever you like!

Larger items like tables and bedframes can’t be moved in one piece. Our local moving services include disassembly of large furniture items. We’ll individually wrap each piece in protective blankets and stretch wrap, and keep track of screws and bolts needed for reassembly. When we get to your new home, we’ll put everything back together!

We can pack and move your office, too! Our commercial moving experts is trained to handle every office move, whether you run a call center, bank or tech startup. We’ll break down desks and chairs for easy transportation, and work with you and your IT department to ensure careful moving of technical equipment.

Just because your moving, doesn’t mean your doors can close to customers. That’s why our local Long Island commercial movers can move your office after hours or on the weekends. With our moving services, you won’t lose a moment of business.

Moving to Long Island, NY

One misconception people have about Long Island is thinking it is small. When we say Long Island, we mean it! Long Island is actually bigger than Rhode Island, and is home to 7.6 million people. Geographically, Brooklyn and Queens are on the Island, but culturally, locals consider them totally separate. “Proper” Long Island includes two huge counties, Nassau and Suffolk, each with plenty of wonderful neighborhoods to choose from. Some of our favorites are Great Neck, East Hampton and Ronkonkoma.

Wondering what to do on Long Island? The real answer is: anything you want. Of course, with NYC just a train ride away, you can enjoy hit Broadway musicals, concerts at Madison Square Garden, shopping for every budget, and an array of food and drink opportunities. But the Island has its own great activities as well! Long Island is home to great wineries, casinos, restaurants and outdoor activities. But one thing Long Islanders all have in common is being close to the beach. Whether you’re walking the pier in Port Jeff, enjoying an upscale vacation in the Hamptons or fishing off the shore at one of many  Long Island fishing spots, the beaches here have something to offer to everyone.

If you’re ready to begin life on Long Island, we’d like to be the first to say “Welcome!” When you’re ready to get moving, call (718) 600-3482 for a Long Island moving quote, and we’ll take care of everything.

  • 5 star ratingExcellent experience with these guys.  They worked at a good pace, but not so fast as to damage items.  Really appreciate how they reassembled the bed.  Will not hesitate to use them for our next move.
