Experienced in moving you from NYC to Hoboken NJ

Hoboken is small in size but it’s got a big town feel, with its own suite of high rise developments along the Hudson River, standing opposite the West Village and Chelsea.

About 53,400 people call ‘Mile Square City’ home, valuing its clean, walkable qualities and short commute into downtown Manhattan.

Piece of Cake Moving & Storage has been helping New Yorkers relocate into Hoboken’s townhouses, condos, new apartment complexes and single family homes.

With parking being a definite challenge in Hoboken, it’s worth choosing a mover with local knowledge to manage your relocation here, not to mention navigating all those multi-story walk ups in the area.

Our top moving tips when moving to Hoboken NJ

If you’re looking for a young vibe you’re in the right place. Hoboken residents have a median age of around 30 years old. Those aged over 60 make up less than 7% of the local population.

Other factors to consider when moving to Hoboken include:

  • Commuting to NYC. Between the PATH train, New Jersey transit buses and a ferry, you have multiple options for getting into your destination in Manhattan in 10-20 minutes depending on the mode you choose. Increasingly, locals are also heading into other parts of Jersey for work or study and with parking difficult, favouring public transport options. Perhaps for this reason, it’s worth noting Hoboken does not have a local Motor Vehicle Commission (MVC) so you’ll need to visit Jersey City, Bayonne or another office. If you’re staying local, Hoboken has a bike share program to help you get around.
  • Outdoor activities. You’re right on the Hudson so try postcard perfect Pier 13 for options like sailing, paddle boarding and kayaking or and the Hoboken Cove Community Boathouse offers free kayaking. Also on Sinatra Drive is the Hudson River Waterfront Walkway which provides an ideal location for staying in shape and enjoying the distance between you and Manhattan, or visit Pier A park, where locals even try their hand at fishing. All these outdoor options mean it’s also a very pet friendly location. In case you haven’t guessed, Sinatra Park is indeed named after its most famous son Frank, the legendary singer who was born here.
  • Education Options. The private research university, the Stevens Institute of Technology is based in Hoboken and its campus includes 7 residence halls and other properties, lending a strong undergraduate community to the town. Hoboken also has a comprehensive public school district including multiple Charter Schools and private education options such as the Hudson School and the Hoboken Catholic Academy.
  • History. The first official game of American baseball took place at Elysian Fields in Hoboken in June 1846 between the Knickerbockers and the New York Baseball Club. For the trivia buffs, the Knickerbockers lost 23-1. Hoboken’s historic train terminal has seen its own share of firsts including Thomas Edison operating the first electric train from here to Montclair. Other inventions which began in Hoboken include the Oreo, the zipper as we know it, and the waffle cone for ice cream.
  • Nightlife. With such a young population, it goes without saying there’s an active art and music scene as well as thriving nightlife. All that entertainment means you can expect some street noise, with the city boasting more restaurants and bars per square mile than even New York City. It’s a long running tradition when you consider the first patent for a Beer Brewery was issued by Peter Stuyvesant in 1663 to an operator right here in Hoboken.
  • Culture. From the Hoboken Historical Museum to the Monroe Center for the Arts, there are more than a few historic and cultural landmarks to explore. For less formal options, try the fairs, markets and cultural festivals in Hoboken throughout the year as well as Movies Under the Stars in summer or the Bow Tie cinema all year round.

    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!
