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 Men and a Truck.

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.
