Best Astoria Movers

Wherever you’re coming from you’ll find a place here in one of the most diverse neighborhoods in the city. Hailing from the northwest corner of Queens, Astoria was historically known as a part of the city with a large Greek population. However, today, people of so many other ethnicities call this part of the borough home. With such diversity comes fantastic culinary flavors and cultural opportunities, great for residents of all ages to start or continue their NYC adventure.

The good news is that you don’t have to blaze your own trails when it comes to your relocation. Give Piece of Cake Moving and Storage, an NYC-based moving company, a call and you’ll have the best, affordable, experienced Astoria Queens movers in your corner. There’s no staircase too narrow and no NYC parking rule that we can’t navigate. With our flat fee and full range of moving support services, including moving supplies, plastic moving bin rental, packing, unpacking, and storage options, we’ve got your Astoria move covered.

Our Top Astoria Moving Tips

Astoria is one of the crown jewels of this borough, bordering along the East River facing Manhattan. Moving inland from the shore, the neighborhood stretches east to West 81st street. Going south to north, it extends from 36th Avenue back to the East River. Nearby, you’ll also be close to Woodside to the east, Sunnyside to the southeast, and Long Island city to the southwest. Beyond its borders, Astoria’s got a lot in store for you, such as:

  • Arts and culture. Manhattan’s Upper East Side may have Museum Mile, but across the river, you’ll have your pick of some significant cultural institutions here, too. Featuring the history and art of film, you can visit the exhibitions and even catch a movie screening at the Museum of the Moving Image. Close by, you’ll also take note of Kaufman Astoria Studios, a movie studio that’s been home to the Sesame Street production since 1992. There’s also great sculptural art to be appreciated at the Noguchi Museum, honoring American artist Isamu Noguchi. If you’re ready to catch a stage show but aren’t interested in making your way across the East River to the city’s theater district, you can catch one of the local productions at the Astoria Performing Arts Center. Queens may have a different pace than some of the other NYC boroughs, but it’s not lacking in creativity.
  • Food and drink fit for a Queen(s resident). If you like to eat from a diverse plate, you’ve come to the right place. Historically, Astoria has had a large Greek and Middle Eastern population. Currently though, there’s much more of a melting pot of culture running through this thriving neighborhood. That said, you can still get some of the best Greek food in the city here. If you’re wild for moussaka and baklava, then you’re going to want to make your way to the well-known Taverna Kyclades. You also won’t have to travel to Little Italy to get some fresh Italian fare. Locals rave about Cassinelli Food Products, which has its own in-house line of pastas including ravioli, tortellini, sauces, and cheese. Gotta hankering for some grub that’ll please both the meat-eaters and the veg-heads? Comfortland is serving up quirky dishes from breakfast time to when the dinner bell rings. Try their rainbow cookie crumb cake, fresh donuts, or their breakfast po’ boy sandwich to start your day (or save it for later)! Another classic must-go spot in the neighborhood is a great place to share a cold one with your pals: Bohemian Hall & Beer Garden. It’s one of the oldest beer gardens in NYC, serving up Czech and Slovak dishes alongside the pints of hoppy suds.
  • Cost of living. Living in NYC has a higher cost than most places you may call home. However, when you compare across boroughs, Queens comes out as one of the more affordable parts of the city to live in. As you consider what your dwellings may be like, you’ll find plenty of pre-war brick apartments, single-family homes, and townhouses in Astoria. Some luxury apartment buildings are in the mix as well. Housing cost-wise, the average rent for a one-bedroom will run about $2,595 in the area. If you’re in the market to purchase a home, the median listing price is currently at $777,500. Both aren’t exactly cheap, but are much more affordable, relatively speaking. What is pretty affordable is getting around from Astoria to other parts of the city. You’ll have ready access to the N and W subway train stops that’ll get you to Midtown Manhattan in about 15 minutes. For those who use air travel frequently, you’ll be happy to know that the M60 express bus will take you to LaGuardia Airport in no time. With that kind of service, you won’t bat an eye at the $2.75 a ride price tag for your easy commute.
  • Sanctuary in the city. When you’re ready to break free of the concrete jungle, you won’t have to go far to find greenspace and outdoor recreation. Astoria Park, a 60 acre spot along the East River, boasts playgrounds, a skate park, and an Olympic-sized public outdoor pool. With a historically large Greek population, it’s’ no surprise that a park in the area was erected and named after the capital city of Greece: Athens Square Park. Bring your little one’s there to enjoy a playground flanked by sculptures and large columns. Yet another spot where you can marvel at the art of sculpture is Socrates Sculpture Park. What was once an abandoned riverside landfill and dumpsite was reclaimed by sculptor Mark di Suvero into a thriving artist studio and exhibition space for all to enjoy. No matter what excites or soothes the senses, you’ll find it in Astoria.

Astoria Queens Moving Service Reviews

  • star star star star star

    From start to finish my move was a great experience. I immediately got a quote. The scheduling was easy, and they provided me with information regarding insurance coverage (and took care of the paperwork my building provided). The move itself went like clockwork. The movers arrived on time and texted me when they were on their way with an ETA to the delivery site. They moved everything up the 3 flights of stairs into my apartment quickly and safely. A great company that provides great service at very reasonable rates.

  • star star star star star

    They were awesome! They take everything apart and then re assemble for you.They wrap up your tvs and glass shit professionally. They take the legs off your couch so it fits through doors. Everything's wrapped until it's inside so it doesn't ruin the paint on your walls if they rub against them.Not even a wine glass was chipped.

  • star star star star star

    They came at zero hour after the moving company I initially hired and paid a deposit to canceled. I was freaking out about my move not happening at all but they did get this done and my stuff arrived more or less intact and accounted for. They handled changes and snafus gracefully and earned their money. Hopefully I won't be moving again for a long time but if I get forced into that again, I'll remember this experience.

  • star star star star star

    Was very easy to call and set up a move. The price was good to. I had some mix-ups and needed to add items and even change the date, but they were able to easily accommodate. Day of the move the crew was super nice and professional. They quickly packed up the entire apartment with ease, I didn't really lift a finger. They made what is usually a stressful day pretty easy.

  • star star star star star

    I was amazed how efficient the guys were. they sorted out my items to be removed and, went straight to work. We will definitely use A Piece of Cake multiple times in the future until, we officially make the BIG MOVE! THANKS FOR YOUR HELP....YES, IT WAS A PIECE OF CAKE! NO STRESS INVOLVED...JUST SWEET SERVINGS.....

  • star star star star star

    Piece of Cake Moving was phenomenal to work with. From the initial sale, to the follow up, to the day of delivery. The moving crew themselves were a dream to work with. I honestly don't know how they managed to move everything we'd accumulated over the years in such a short (relatively) period of time. Will definitely use them again (in hopefully 7-8 years).

    Jose and his team did a great job moving my husband and I. They arrived on time and were very organized. They were professional, courteous and moved us quickly. They wrapped our furniture very well. They took apart and put together our bed and sectional couch. We were very pleased and would recommend them.

  • star star star star star

    Nicholas and Giga made this moving experience an easy one, especially since I was moving alone. They were punctual, kind and very thoughtful. When we arrived to my apartment? They helped unwrap all the packing tape and set up my furniture and bed - something that would take probably days for me. They delivered excellent service and went beyond my expectations.

  • star star star star star

    Excellent moving company. I hired 2 men for 2 hours to complete 1 bedroom move. They arrived early, were extremely efficient, helpful, personable, strong, and careful. They finished the job with 45 min to spare. Everything went extremely smoothly. I would hire Piece of Cake again.

    Great move with POC movers! I rented their pink bins which was an excellent choice, they provide plenty of packing paper, zip ties, and tags. My team arrived right at the start of their arrival window and quickly and safely packed all my bins and furniture into their truck. The team just as efficiently unloaded everything, leaving the bins in the labeled rooms and re assembling my bed frame. I definitely recommend renting their bins. I would definitely use Piece of Cake movers again and recommend them to a friend.

    The movers were so professional, friendly and quick. They took such great care of my stuff. I happened to move on one of the hottest days of the year and felt so bad. They were gracious and so still worked quickly. Pls make sure you tip your movers good, they work hard and were really great!

  • star star star star star

    I had made an appointment from another moving company that completely screwed me over the day of. I called every moving company in New York freaking out, and Piece of Cake was willing to come at 7pm to help me move, last minute. I genuinely don't know what I would have done if they didn't go out of their way to fit me in. Anytime in the future I will be using piece of cake moving! They boxed and unboxed so fast and efficiently, it was amazing!
