Add-ons to the hourly rate:

Heavy Lifting and Loading

Your affordable movers will do all the heavy lifting and loading for you. We also provide additional blankets or wrapping for your already packed belongings, in order to ensure their safe transport.

Building Paperwork

In NYC, most apartment buildings require a Certificate of Insurance (COI) in order to move in or out. If your building falls into this category, don’t worry — we will take care of acquiring the required paperwork and filing it on your behalf. Plus, we take extra care to protect the building and its common areas during your move.

Add-ons to the hourly rate:

Packing Supplies

If you need packing materials, we can provide them for you at an additional cost. This includes items like a cardboard box, tape, bubble wrap, etc.

Parking fees or tolls

With Empire Movers at the helm, you don’t have to worry about parking fees or road tolls. Everything will be taken care of by our professional team of trained movers.

Hourly Pricing vs. Flat Rate Pricing

1. Hourly Pricing Might Cost More

While hourly pricing may sound appealing at first, it’s important to keep in mind that this pricing structure can end up costing you more money in the long run.

2. FlatRate Pricing - Know Everything Upfront

On the other hand, with flat rate pricing, you’re charged one price for the entire move, regardless of how long your move takes or what issues pop up. This means that you will know the total cost of your NYC local move up front, without having to worry about any unexpected charges.

3. Unforeseen Expenses

With hourly pricing, you’re charged for every single minute your moving company is working, which means you could end up paying for NYC traffic snags, elevator delays, and other unforeseen circumstances that are out of your control.

4. FlatRate Pricing is More Advantageous

When it comes to NYC local moves, we believe flat rate pricing is the best way to ensure a fair price. When you decide on Empire Movers & Storage as your moving company, you can trust that you’re getting experienced professionals at a price that won’t break the bank.

Frequently Asked Questions | NYC Moving Companies

Have questions about your NYC move? We’ve got answers! Check out our NYC moving FAQs for information on everything from how to choose a moving company to what to do on moving day.

First of all, you should make sure they are a legit company and not a scam. You can do so by checking their credentials on the Better Business Bureau’s website. Secondly, always try to compare quotes between companies. Don’t just go with the first quote you get, try to shop around a bit and see what other companies have to offer. Thirdly, know what sort of movers you need. There are office movers, apartment movers, house movers, and each are different.
You can ask friends and family for recommendations, or look for reviews of the company online. Either way works fine.
You should pick the right movers for your move, look for licensed moving companies and, most important of all, you should pick movers that know New York City like the palm of their hand.
Usually, the moving company handles the type of truck. They will come to your apartment, or office, or house, see how much there is to be moved, and then bring a moving truck based on their estimates.
Trying to move alone, not checking to see if the moving company they’re hiring is legitimate, and not packing their items properly.
Empire Movers also offers office moving services for those who need them. We are the #1 office movers in New York City, and our fleet of trucks, equipment and, most importantly, our trained crew, are second to none in New York.
Don’t worry! Empire Movers also offers long distance moving services.
A representative of our company will come to your house/office/apartment and draft up a rough estimate of how many items there are to be moved. We will then create a personalized plan for solving al of your moving issues and woes, depending on the type of services you have chosen (whether you want packing services or not, or the size of the truck needed for the move, for example). After that, once moving day is upon you, we will come to your location and start the move!
