Affordable and experienced moving service
As a New Yorker, you’re likely already aware that city living isn’t cheap. Rents are among the highest in the country, even your typical takeout order bill is high. High prices and NYC are synonymous in some ways. With that in mind, would it be reasonable to expect that you’ll need to pay a pretty penny for reputable and reliable moving services?

Finding Cheap Movers in NYC
You want your items to get to their drop off destination in intact, and you don’t want to pay a high price for the service. That doesn’t necessarily have to be a tall order when it comes to finding cheap movers in NYC.
Taking some time to get to know your (potential) movers and understand the quotes they give you will help you make an informed decision about your relocation budget.
We have summarized the following strategies to get the best price for your next move:
- Talk to several moving companies and compare quotes. Yes, this means reaching out to more than one moving company in the city. As soon as you know you may be planning a move, start reaching out to companies who are insured, licensed appropriately, and are registered with the US Department of Transportation. These are signs you’re dealing with reputable professionals. Then, when you get quotes, take a look at the bottom line. Is the total cost too good to be true (in other words: really low)? It might be a tell-tale sign you’ve encountered some fly-by-night movers who may not be reliable. When you review your quotes, look for what you need and prices that seem reasonable for what you’re getting (in comparison to the multiple quotes you received!). Prioritizing quality service over the lowest quote will likely reap a final cost for your move that you can trust.
- Get clear about what’s included in your quote and how the charges are estimated. Once you get your quotes, take a gander at all that is included in the total price. The last thing you want is to be surprised with hidden fees and paying for services you don’t need. That said, be aware that there are some necessary services that you’ll be quoted for that will cost a bit extra, such as moving heavy items, getting those items down several flights of stairs, navigating elevators, and the like. It’s also good to keep in mind that moving quotes measured by the cubic feet of space that your items to be moved take up (i.e., measuring by volume), rather than their total weight will result in a more accurate estimate for your relocation costs. Further, are there services included that you don’t need? Anything you don’t quite understand about what is being offered? This is a perfect time to ask some questions and get some clarity. Trusted and reputable movers will be transparent about what’s included in their quotes.
Additionally, some factors that influence the price of a moving company’s services may be ones you can change to meet your budget and inform your arrangements. Do you have any flexibility on:
- Timing. Not worried about rescheduling your relocation for the winter? What about the time of the week or month? If you are, you may be able to avoid making arrangements during the busiest part of the year (summer, early fall, weekends, and month-end) to move and it’ll likely save you some bucks. Check out our best time to move guide.
- Distance. Lastly, no matter the timing of your move, the distance you are planning to go will significantly impact your moving bill’s bottom line. Going the distance when it comes to relocation will cost you more. That’s just the long and short of it. It’s good to enter into the budget conversation with that in mind. Check out our flat fee moving formula and how the distance between your locations influences your move.
As an informed consumer, you can find the best prices out there for your move. And, it’s not an urban legend — you can hire reputable movers at a reasonable rate in NYC. No matter the circumstances, Piece of Cake knows what it takes to make your move one that you can afford. We’re ready to help you assess your needs for your next move and understand the costs associated with various services.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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.
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!
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!
