Well, my boyfriend and I are still shaking our heads in amazement with how incredible Mike, Nelson and Jake were! As it turned out, we had greatly underestimated the amount of stuff we had to pack. The guys didn't blink an eye and didn't stop for a second, and had great attitudes the whole time to boot! They really went above and beyond.

NYcityVan was one of the worst experiences of my life.
Let me first start off by saying the Gabriel the mover and his co-mover were very nice to us and seemed liked good guys.
Now onto the management of this place.
These guys are a joke Paul who seemed to be a nice guy on the phone gave us a quote. The quote seemed reasonable, and when he actually said to us on the phone that it should come out to 450 dollars and maximum 500 we said great we will book with you guys.
The quote came to us saying 100 and hour, and 1.5 hours travel time, because that is the distance from the first location to the last one (we had on extra stop in the middle) Is what we thought the quote meant. So to our understanding it was going to be 150 for the travel time and hopefully 3 hours to move everything to and from the truck.
Then after arriving at the first place on time it took them a bit longer to pack up the stuff, but this is completely understandable. Then to do a 45 min drive to the first stop it took them OVER 2 HOURS. They claim this is because their cars are not allowed on all the roads. Don't you think they should have known that when giving us our quote.
After arriving at the second location, again took a bit longer than expected to pack up stuff but no big issues there. Then they left for our final drop off location. Again another 45 min drive is there is traffic, can be done in 30 easy without traffic. It took them 2 and a half hours for this part of the trip.
Now that it was so late and we had been waiting in our apt all day for the furniture to arrive, we actually went down and helped them unpack the truck to make the process go faster. When all was said and done we asked for the price and they said well its 100 an hour, and we have been working from 9am until now 5PM.
THAT IS 8 HOURS. Plus 1.5 travel time. They were going to charge us 950 dollars from our 450 price quote. After yelling at the managers Paul and Mark and having them hangup on us because they didn't want to deal with us. The claim the 1.5 travel time is for their truck to get to the place not the actual driving once they start working. And they claimed this was all explained to us before hand which is most certainly was not.

All in all i will never deal with this company again they have everything backwards and robbed us of 500 dollars. Make sure if you ever use them to get everything in writing and you understand what their prices mean, because they are a joke.

Excellent experience. I called on Thursday for a weekend move, requesting early in the morning and was scheduled by Paul for 6 AM on a Sunday. A young personable man showed up on time and we drove to Princeton, loaded the furniture, drove back to NYC and were unloaded without stress by 10:30 AM. THE PRICE WAS CHEAPER, EVEN WITH THE COST OF THE HELPER THAN HERTZ BY $250 AS TO WHEN I DROVE MY FURNITURE TO PRINCETON MYSELF, WITHOUT HELP.

This was my first move in the city, from midtown to downtown NYC. The process was very straightforward and smooth from start to finish.

Paul responded promptly to my initial email asking for a quote. The hourly rate was reasonable and my request to file insurance certificates (for both buildings), was fulfilled within a day.

The movers (Nick, Steven, and Ter[r]ence) arrived exactly on time and were courteous and professional. They finished the job of moving my 1 BR from a 3.5 floor walkup (elevator mysteriously broke) in two hours flat, taking less than 45 min to clear everything out, and less than 45 min to install it all in my new place. No complaints about my large, heavy, and awkward items either.

Thanks NYcityVAN! I would definitely use them in the future and I would recommend them to anyone.

Nothing but good things to say. I was able to arrange everything over email. Paul gave me a 1 hour arrival window, and our movers showed up on time. They wrapped the sofa that was being moved, handled it with care, and had it delivered to my apartment very quickly. Highly recommended.

Beware these guys are illegal movers. It is New York State law that all movers must apply and receive household goods moving authority issued by the New York State Department of Transportation. I spoke to the owner two weeks ago, asked if he had a license along with his NY DOT number and he stated no. He also stated there are a lot of illegal movers, no one cares. Well I guess he will care when he gets his fine from DOT as I filed a complaint with them.

Movers must have a license. This is to protect you the customer from being ripped off, having crack heads in your home near your kids, and to cover your personal belongings. Call the Dept. of Transportation to ensure your mover has a license. 518-457-6503

Unbelievable. I'm a recent University graduate and was moving from campus housing into an apartment -- with five stops along the way to pick up furniture I was buying from my classmates. Incredibly, this logistically complex and practically improbable move was coordinated without a hitch through horrendous gridlock NYC traffic and the impending end of the world on May 21.

Keith and Kelvin, the two guys who moved my stuff, were organized, professional, and prepared for everything. They disassembled, packed, reassembled with speed and dexterity. They had blankets, tools, equipment, etc. Nothing got broken or even so much as dented.

Moving day is, without a doubt, the worst day of any New Yorker's life. The entire 6-stop move was accomplished quickly, efficiently, and affordably. The only two things that didn't cooperate were the weather and the traffic, and I wouldn't put it past these guys to make sure even those were lined up if given enough notice.

These guys rock.. Paul, though we had only spoken once, was very responsive to my every email.. Ladies, I know it is difficult to find trustworthy people, for a move. I was once left to find movers to replace my scheduled guys on the eve of my move..and there were the Russian guys who were going to cancel after they arrived and then held my heavy items hostage until I got them more money.. "yes, I have seen most of the dishonerable in NY"..So, to say I was fearful of this move from NY to NJ, is just a fraction of what I was feeling.
NOT any longer, Paul gave me name and contact number of my "man" and I called to leave word and my number Sat. night, when I heard nothing by 30 min. before arrival time, I called Paul (the first time we had spoke) he was off the phone in a flash and within 5min. my driver (not the same man) was calling and letting me know he was within 30min away.. I was impressed!! And Jasson and Josa arrved in that 30 min.. , kind, respectful, cleancut and halled ass!! We were packed and ready to go in less than an hour, they made it look so easy.. I do have to add that I had removed most of the smaller things in the weeks prior, but you know how it is..always so much more than you think.

We traveled from UWS to West NJ and even after arriving J & J were happy and not one uneasy moment.. They even helped remover a couch, my friend had, to the curb. My friend was pleased wtih how respectful they were of her home and I was very pleased with the price of my move I believe Paul is very fair in his fee and if your able to work around his schedule you will find him more than fair.

So, Ladies and gents.. Use these guys (two of my neighbors will be calling them, we lived in a dump;) when you use them remember not to be cheep to the men who work so hard, like Jasson and Josa.. Thanks again Paul.. God Bless LS

I was delighted by my purchase of two fab dressers off of Craigslist until it hit me that I have no friends agile enough to navigate the narrow stairs of the seller's duplex apartment with a 7 foot long solid wood dresser. So I went back to Craigslist and found NYcityVan. I sent an email at midnight and got a response from the owner, Paul, a few minutes later with a very reasonable quote. I emailed Paul the following morning to inquire as to whether it would be possible to schedule the move that same day - totally expecting the answer to be no. Lo and behold, I got a positive reply within minutes and three hours later, the very heavy dressers and a bunch of other stuff I decided to buy from the seller at the last minute were safely in their new home - mine ! Wonderful service - I recommend highly.

im terrified of using movers. lived in nyc for 13 years and only had to use movers once before. needless to say, i was traumatized then.

so ive never used movers again, but now that im getting up there in age and cant ask my adult friends to help me move, i found these guys on yelp.

there were easy to set up with thru email and worked around my terms and gave me options for hourly or flat. since i know moving pretty well i was able to estimate pretty well how long the job would take, so i opted for hourly.

they arrived within the window they gave me and even called over an hour ahead to let me know when to expect them exactly. they were on time and very good guys. wesley and sean were my movers. both were personable, intelligent, polite, and effecient.

thank you guys so much. just wish i hadnt cheaped out and taken you up on the offered extra hour. woulda saved me alot of pain finishing the job without your help!

The service I received from NYcityVAN was exceptional. From the first time I called their office, to moving day, to their follow up emails, they were professional and courteous. The movers came an hour early and were extremely efficient! (My roommates were shocked by how fast they worked!) Moving can be really stressful (and awful) but NYcityVAN made my move so easy!!
