2021 Makin' Moves Report

This report analyses data from over 35,000+ moves that Piece of Cake facilitated in 2021.

New York you made some big moves in 2021

The 2021 Makin’ Moves Report is the first annual survey of moving data and trends issued by Piece of Cake Moving & Storage, NYC’s fastest growing and highest rated moving company.

For The City That Never Stops Moving, Piece of Cake has proudly provided local and long distance moving and storage services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
As an essential business Piece of Cake was among the first movers in the USA to provide contactless moving services. Piece of Cake Moving has been consistently vigilant about health checks of our movers, the sanitization of our trucks and moving equipment, offices and storage facilities.

Makin' Moves 2021 - Piece of Cake Moving and Storage annual report

This report analyses data from over 35,000+ moves that Piece of Cake facilitated in 2021, with additional analysis and anecdotes from internal customer surveys.

Compiled from customer move zip code data, the report dives into statistics and trends by neighborhood, borough, city, county, and state. What we found was that while more people were moving than ever before in 2021, that didn’t necessarily mean that they left New York. In fact, the most common move New Yorkers made was within NY. Of course New Yorkers did also move out of state, our long distance moving data and trends can be found within this report.

In a unique moment in history Piece of Cake was trusted to keep New York moving.

Excellent service from start to finish. Crew was on time, courteous, and not a single thing broke in transit. They were very helpful and took pride in what they did. Pricing is transparent, and everything was well documented and staff was highly responsive.

These guys are incredible. The movers are friendly, thorough, and extremely fast. In multiple situations, they went above and beyond, offering a level of help and service I've never seen in a moving company. Even from the get go, the communications was fast, clear, and concise. They truly made moving into a six story walk up a piece of cake. I couldn't recommend them highly enough, and I actually felt happy when I tipped them and was able to thank each mover individually. 5/5 stars without a doubt.

From the very beginning, Piece of Cake was truly that to work with. Daniel could not have worked harder to make sure that I felt comfortable and that I had my moving anxieties eased. He was incredibly responsive to all of my questions and accommodated all of my estimates with fair pricing. On the day of my move, PoC was in touch with me before, during, and after my move to make sure everything was transparent. My movers were polite, professional, and efficient. I will 100% use PoC for my future moving needs.

Moving really was a 'piece of cake' with this company! They gave me a competitive quote and a breakdown of what it involved. They were communicative throughout the process, knew about insurance matters that I wasn't aware of, gave me a time window and stuck to it. The two moving guys who arrived were polite, super efficient, and fast. Everything was done as well as it could be, thank you!

Incredibly professional movers from beginning to end. The initial call and communication before the move was by far the best from anyone we talked to in the city. They even checked in during the move to see how it was going! The guys were very quick and careful with all of our things, very courteous and professional.

These guys really are incredible and deserve the high ratings they receive; I never thought I'd say that about a moving company. The entire experience was great. The customer service was amazing, they were always super responsive in answering any questions on calls or emails. The price was exactly what they quoted and was competitive compared to others I received. The movers were on-time, very quick and professional. I would absolutely use them again and highly recommend them.
