No matter the distance or the size of your local move, Octomovers will plan it and have you moved in no time.

Long-Distance Moving

With our fleet of regularly maintained moving trucks, no distance is too far for us to cover. And because they are regularly serviced, you won’t have to worry about delays caused by faulty equipment.

We’ll also be thorough when planning your route. We’ll make sure it is the fastest one but also the safest one. We want your belongings to arrive safely on time and do this all at an affordable price.

Commercial Moving

Commercial moving projects are notoriously difficult to manage. But with Octomovers, you’ll be able to sit back, relax, and watch our expert team take care of it in no time.

We’ll pack your inventory carefully and handle your office equipment with expert care. We’ll also make sure to keep track of your belongings with a detailed inventory list and ensure everything arrives at your new destination. Octomovers also guarantees to keep your downtime to a minimum.

Packing Service

Why handle packing when you can give it to our movers and have them take care of it? We’ll pack your belongings swiftly and ensure everything is handled with care and packed securely.

Great Service, reasonable pricing and true professionals! Did not try to overcharge me like other companies because it was a last minute move so big plus for that. Milos in Customer Service was great! Big THANK YOU to Rodney and Xaviar that did the actual moving. They were on time for the scheduled window time and were very helpful, courteous and so careful with our stuff, real pros and so nice! No hesitation in using their services for the next move!

Octomovers was absolutely awesome! They helped me get all of my things from my apartment quickly and my request was very last minute. They also helped get my items shipped through Fed Ex. They waited until everything was shipped made sure that I didn’t get overcharged when I tried to ship my things through fed ex and quickly repackaged my items and even made my box smaller so fed ex couldn’t charge me more. I definitely recommend their service! Thank you again guys! 10/10 !!

Going through about 10 or more moving companies, I landed on Octomovers because of their rating, reliability, flexibility, priced quote, and my luck. I am so grateful to have found them during this busy time of the year because they made my stress go from 120 to 0 with their efficient way of communication. The move itself was spectacular- efficient and items handled with professionalism and caution. Everything wrapped up tight, sturdy, and delivered to my destination with care. The best part was... my storage unit space was tighter than the amount of items that I carried over... and they magically fit everything in. They did it. Everything fit in perfectly, safely, and logically. I'm moving to a new home in October and we'll be working with Octomovers once again. There's no need to search elsewhere. Octomovers is the answer. I wish I can advertise more for them because you will not regret it whatsoever. Just find the keywords here: reliable, flexible, efficient, cautious, careful, safe, logical. I look forward to my next move with them!!! Thank you so much!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If I could give Octomovers a hundred stars, I would. This is the first move of my life that I actually ... enjoyed! I've been through a few moves in my time - I was WOWED by the level of professionalism / expertise, genuine care, pure skill, and humor. I was ... kind of sorry when they rolled away! The administrative end was also truly excellent - great people: thoughtful, ethical, humane, and excellent problem-solving. I just can't say enough good things about Octomovers - I'd go out on Broadway with a sandwich sign for them.

I cannot recommend Octomovers enough! We moved cross country. When they found out that the carriers that were supposed to do the second part of our move, could not guarantee a date of arrival, they ended up taking care of it on their own to ensure an on-time delivery. They were courteous, professional and well-priced.

I don’t have enough room here to say how much I love Octomovers.A few weeks before I moved from Manhattan to Queens, I was searching for a reputable and fair priced moving company, and I just happened to see these guys moving someone else on the same block as me. I asked for their info and they gave me the owner’s business card (Ralph).I emailed Ralph on a Saturday and within hours he got back to me cc’ing his head of sales, Mike. From the moment we began communicating to after the move was completed, Mike was in constant contact with me, making sure I had everything I needed. The price was more than fair, and was much better than any of the others I spoke to. They didn’t charge me for the two COIs I needed (which many movers do) and provided wardrobe boxes.On moving day, they said they’d be there between 9 and 10, and arrived right on time at 9! They helped move my bed and couch into a U-Haul that my dad rented as he was taking those items to his house. All of my belongings were neatly packed into the truck with care, yet they did it so fast! I was amazed.We had an extra stop to make to pick up a couch which they worked into the pricing (still, a very fair price!) before our final destination. Once we got to the new place, they put everything in the rooms where they were labeled, and again, did it so quickly yet with caution. They were all such funny and nice guys too, we had fun talking to them all day.Lastly, I noticed the next day that the cord to my TV was missing and texted one of the guys to see if they had it. The owner, Ralph, personally called me the next day to tell me he found it and then he hand delivered it himself to my new apartment. Talk about good customer service!!I will be recommending Octomovers to everyone I know as the go-to moving company to work with, and whenever it’s time for me to move again, I will 100% call these guys.Thank you, OCTOMOVERS!

I HIGHLY recommend Octomovers. I hired them for a one-bedroom move from Queens to Manhattan and the team led by Robby got the job done so quickly and efficiently. The guys were also super nice and friendly, and put a lot of thought and care into making sure NOTHING got damaged during the move. When we got to my building, we found out the lobby and elevator was closed for the day for renovation but they took charge, spoke to the building manager, and worked out a solution to get everything done. Really reasonable rates and it’s always great to support a local business that’s focused on doing quality work instead of just trying to get a job done as fast as possible. Thank you Ralph, Robby, and team and I will definitely be referring my friends to them!

They even had the forethought to mark the China box that contained the coffee maker -- so I was all set the next day! Also, the price quoted was exactly what I was charged. These guys are the best!

Great moving service - Ralph and his team were incredibly professional and careful with all of my belongings and furniture. They also work quickly and are very reasonably priced.I stored two bedrooms worth of furniture at Octomovers storage location while in between apartments during Covid and it was very clean, safe, and great value. Amazing experience and will definitely be using Octomovers for my future moving/storage needs!

I urgently needed to clear our studio for building work to commence immediately. I had to coordinate it from London and had difficulties, for all sorts of reasons - time zones, payments with a UK credit card, lack of insurance on some vendors' parts. By chance, I happened upon Octomovers on Google, rang and Milos got the forms filled out within half an hour, two removal men booked for a couple of hours later that day, for a fair price and kept me updated all the way through. I'm really impressed with them, actually, and grateful for their help. Definitely would use again.

Octomovers were 100% worth every dollar. The coordination from beginning to end was thorough and professional. The moving team that came to pack, move, and unpack on day-of was incredibly friendly and positive, which made the whole day enjoyable. They were helpful and communicative every step of the way. Moving is considered one of the most stressful parts of life but this coming truly made my experience easy. I would use Octomovers again and highly recommend them to anyone who wants a seamless process.

I had a long-distance in-state move with Octomovers. The experience was great. I had to change the moving date after booking and they were very accommodating. Not only able to work with the new schedule but also kept the same original quote which was a very competitive rate. I did my own packing for the boxes. On the day of the move, they were on-time, moved everything efficiently, and packed my furnitures carefully. It was a next-day delivery. They arrived and delivered everything on-time. Set up my furnitures quickly. The whole process was so smooth and worry-free. Sales team and movers were both very friendly too.

This review is for my second time using Octomovers as I prepare to book them for a 3rd job. Ralph’s team did an excellent job moving all my possessions out of a storage unit and into a 4th floor walk up. Punctual, friendly, respectful and very mindful of what order I wanted things moved in and to what location. Nothing broken, damaged, or dirty except a couple incidental dings in some cheap metal furniture that was easy to put back into place. They were a 2-person team (usually a 3-person job) but got everything up with no stalling on the job. It was amazing. It’s always a smooth experience with them. Moving can be really stressful. I trust them to make the day a lot easier.

I requested a quote on Wednesday and after negotiating a few points, I reserved a pick-up for that Saturday. Everything on the moving end went smoothly. Octomovers team arrived at 9 am and we were moved out of our office into the storage unit by noon. We had our boxes color coded and Xavier and his team were thoughtful in organizing the loading and unloading by the colors. We will definitely be using them for the move out.

Octomovers has moved us into a new apartment twice now (one month ago and the first time 3 years ago). Professional, friendly movers, and more importantly, highly ethical. After our last move, we had mistakenly thought our smart TV was damaged in the move. We informed Ralph, the owner, and he immediately took full accountability for the cost of repairing and potentially replacing our TV. He found a repairman and had his movers bring the TV in and out of our apartment, at no cost. When we found out that the TV was in fact NOT damaged but simply not working because it was connected to a light dimmer switch, I apologized and offered to reimburse him for the costs and trouble. He declined payment and was simply happy to know that our TV was working. Based on our two moving experiences and how well the TV situation was handled, I would definitely use them again, knowing that if anything went wrong, things would be resolved in a civil way. Highly recommend them to anyone looking for a mover that is highly accountable, will move your things safely, and won't overcharge you.

We had an excellent experience with Octomovers. They were professional, efficient, and always courteous. They made a typically stressful experience a breeze. All of our belongings made it safely to our new apartment thanks to their meticulous packing and care. We were able to agree on a flat rate for our move and that was exactly what we payed. Their transparency to me was the most impressive aspect; one that often lacks in this industry. Thanks again to the whole team, we will absolutely use their services in the future and recommend to all our friends.
