Cheap Local Movers In New York City and New York

Three Movers is among the finest movers in New York City. Our local operations can provide moving services for your residential or business move, whether you are making a local or long distance relocation.

Long distance New York City moving companies

There’s no question that New York City is one of the world’s most exciting places to live. It’s the biggest city in The United States—the City that never sleeps. So many people occupying such a small space. If you are joining them or had enough, Three Movers has the expertise to help with your long distance move to or from New York City.

When you plan your move here, you want to ensure that you are engaging a reputable vendor with the experience to do the job right. Long distance and interstate moves to or from NYC require extra trust in your mover since you can’t be watching over them the whole time as they transport your belongings to their new home. Ensure that you thoroughly investigate the companies you are considering by checking references and making sure they are appropriately licensed.

Local New York City movers

When you hire a mover in New York City, you want a company that knows the City’s ins and outs—the streets and neighborhoods, the parking issues, etc. It’s no place for a stranger. Three Movers knows New York, and we can help you with your local move. Call us for an estimate—we price local jobs based on how long it will take to get the work done, and we can offer you tips on how to make the relocation more comfortable for you. If you prefer to have us do the packing, we can provide a quote for that. If you want to pack, we can supply the boxes and other materials you need.

How much will my New York City move cost?

Moving long distance or locally is expensive, like most things, and the best way to know about the cost of movers in NYC is to ask for estimates from a couple of good moving companies. The mover will need to assess the amount of stuff you are moving, plus the logistics of your move. If you live in a walkup with several flights of stairs, there may be a fee for that, and if your high-rise has an elevator that the movers must wait for, they will charge for that. All of these items will be detailed in your written estimate from Three Movers.

In New York City, Three Movers offers these services:

Long Distance Movers In New York City and New York

Types of Moves Offered In New York City, New York

Residential Moves

If your move involves changing from one type of home to another, whether it’s an apartment, a house, flat, or condo, it will be considered a residential move. These are the type of moves where you go from one residence to another. Many moves fall under the residential flag, such as local, long-distance, interstate, and even international moves.

In New York City, Three Movers can tackle all sorts of residential moves. How the move will be charged will depend on whether it’s local, long-distance, or international, as each has its own factors to consider in terms of the cost.

Office/Commercial Movers in New York City, New York

New York City is filled to the brim with offices and businesses, and sometimes those need to be relocated as well. If you own your business office, or rent an office space, and need to move it, Three Movers has experience with this process. Since these moves often involve transporting sensitive documentation or equipment, you’ll want to work with a company that has an excellent track record of commercial moves.

For commercial moves, we’ll assign you a corporate move manager to help you figure out how to start and make the entire process much easier on you.

Military movers in New York City, New York

Military moves that are managed by yourself, or with the assistance of a moving company, are known as personally procured moves or PPM. You’ll have the option of doing the whole thing solo, renting equipment, letting a moving company handle the transportation, or hiring the company to do the entire move.

If you plan the whole thing right, you could even make a profit from your move. A good place to start is working with a company that has affordable rates and knows its way around a military move. Like us. With Three Movers, we’ll help you figure out the steps of a PPM.

International movers in New York City, New York

An international move is no child’s play. There are many more factors at play than just the distance or weight of your items. Unlike local or long-distance moves, this type of residential move often involves shipping your items through containers and a lot of paperwork.

Starting an international move from New York City gives you the advantage of having a lot of ports and airports more readily available, which will end up reducing the cost. Speaking of which, the cost of the move will depend heavily on the method of transportation for your cargo and the destination country. Speak with us to figure out how to start.

Flat-Rate and Hourly Movers

Hiring a flat rate mover might seem like an excellent option, as you’ll know from the get-go what you’ll be dealing with in terms of cost. However, you should be mindful of the distance as flat rate moves can end up being more expensive for long distances.

Workers for local moves are traditionally paid by the hour, though they can give you a flat rate based on an hourly estimate of the amount of work necessary.

Three Movers can accommodate you based on what you feel would work best for you. While we do have crews that work on an hourly-based rate, we can also arrange flat-rate moves.

Packing and Crating

Packing up your stuff is a quintessential element of a move. This can be an arduous process, from procuring the necessary moving supplies to making sure everything is properly packed, it can take you hours to pack and crate up all of your belongings.

If you select Three Movers’s packing service we will take care of everything, from bringing the necessary supplies, to packing up everything properly, and then loading them up in the truck.


Moves are really safe nowadays, but accidents happen to anyone. That’s why movers are required to carry basic insurance for the move. However, this insurance doesn’t cover everything, and if you took care of some of the moving on your own you would be liable for those items.

Your best option is to request our full insurance service, that way no matter what happens you’ll be fully covered. Ask your moving manager about our insurance coverage and options.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Accurate Are Your Moving Estimates and Are They Considered Final?

It depends on how detailed your inquiry is. But most of the time our moving estimate is 90 percent accurate after the initial call. It could go up to 99 percent after doing the physical inspection in your place.

What’s the Best Time to Move in New York City, New York, and how far ahead should I plan my move?

The best time to move to New York City is between Memorial Day and Labor Day when the weather is at its nicest and most dependable.
However, there’s a chance that moving companies are busy at that time. So, make sure that you book a mover weeks ahead. The best time to contact a moving company varies on the distance of your relocation; 2-4 weeks for a local move and 4-6 weeks for a long-distance move.

How Do I Know if My Move Is Local or Long-Distance?

A relocation is called long-distance when it spans over 100 miles. Local movements cover shorter distances, such as 100 or 50 miles.

Is There Anything That a Moving Crew Won’t Accept to Load?

Plants, animals, chemicals, and combustible items are not permitted to be moved by a moving firm. These items are prohibited according to the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) interstate relocations and other regulators for in-state transfers.

Who Regulates Moving Companies in New York City, and Where Can I Verify a Movers’ License?

The New York State Department of Transportation regulates moving firms in the state. To find out if movers are licensed and insured, contact (800) 786-5368 or send an email to
Also, make sure to check the moving firm’s USDOT Number.
You can verify if the moving company is legitimate by checking their USDOT Number on the FMCSA website. The USDOT Number of an interstate moving firm is usually shown on their website. If it’s not available there, you can ask for it personally.

I Had an Emergency and Now I Need a Last-Minute Move. Is That Possible?

Yes, because many moving companies provide same-day moves as part of their service. After you give the moving firm notice, you may anticipate them to begin packing or loading your belongings.
However, bear in mind that relocating is a difficult operation and that many individuals move every day. There’s a chance that the moving business is completely booked on the day you’ve picked.

I Don’t Have Enough Boxes to Package Up My Belongings. Where Can I Find Moving Boxes in New York City, New York?

You can buy moving boxes in supermarkets or grocery stores. Also, you can check online websites like eBay or Facebook Marketplace.
If you’re in a hurry, we can also provide the moving boxes.

What Documents Do I Need to Have on Me on the Day of the Move?

Basically, you need the documents provided by the moving company. Most of the time, the moving crew will check the documents first before they pack or load your items. They are doing this to prevent misunderstandings, especially regarding the agreement on how the belongings should be handled.
To make sure that you prepare all the necessary documents, contact your moving manager. They know all the things about your moving procedure.

I Want to Add/Remove Some Services Before Moving Day. Is That Possible?

Yes, moving companies sometimes approve changes if they are possible. But if you ask for same-day changes, you might not get approval.

Do I Have to Be Present During the Move or At the Destination?

Yes, because you need to sign forms or documents from the moving company. However, you can also ask your moving manager to oversee the entire moving process for you. 

I’m Not Ready to Move All My Items to the Destination Yet. Who Provides Storage Services in New York City?

You can choose to keep your items in our storage area temporarily while you figure out your new living conditions.

A Moving Company Defrauded Me! How Can I File a Complaint in New York City?

You can report the incident to the New York State Department of Transportation, Motor Carrier Compliance Bureau. 
But before you file a complaint, try to resolve things with the moving company first. Also, make sure to check your contract and see if there are agreements that are indeed violated.
If the moving company violates the contract, you can then proceed with the filing of the complaint.

Customer Reviews

I want to take a moment to say thank you to the extremely hard working crew that handled my move. I admit I was skeptical of hiring a company to move my household stuff but I was so pleased with the services. These guys packed everything up and had it loaded and delivered in no time at all. Everything was taken care of from start to finish and my wife and I were able to take some much needed time to check out the new town without having to worry about getting things unpacked. Three Movers took care of everything and we really appreciate it!
