Very professional! In the past 10 years, used them for every move -- at least 4 times. Definitely is my go-to for moving. Ralph and his team are the best!

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 would highly recommend this company. They arrived on time and were very polite. Everything went smoothly with no issues. Great job!
21:23 19 Oct 21
Great service and communication! Super efficient.They were on time to both places to pick up boxes and furniture and everything went smoothly.
16:02 21 Sep 21
Amazing service. My planned moving company cancelled in the last minute because they did not provide a qualified COI. Octomovers came to rescue within hours and helped me move within the same day with an efficient service. High recommend.
19:52 05 Sep 21
Really nice people, did everything in kindness and respect. The pricing is fair and right. They wrapped everything for protection and brought everything safely from one place to the other. I would definitely recommend them to people I know. (don’t forget to tip them nice, they deserve it)

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.
18:46 01 Aug 21
Excellent services, very professional, and efficient.Received the quote within minutes of submitting the enquiry, replied to the emails quickly.The team was very efficient and did all the work very quickly and professionally.Also, they provided with the best possible quote! Highly recommend their services!

Octomovers just helped me move from NYC to DC. They were amazing! They gave me the best price, were professional, kind, on-time both days, didn't break or damage anything and nothing was missing. They were so quick and organized. I absolutely recommend them!
16:34 24 Jul 21
Super happy with Octomovers! They took the time to partially disassemble and reassemble my large and heavy kitchen island unit with great care. 5 stars!

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!
12:34 08 Jul 21
I highly recommend! They packed my apartment up flawlessly....everything arrived to the new place in perfect condition.
17:22 19 Jun 21
I had them help me move into my new studio apartment honestly I was sooo satisfied with their service please don’t hesitate to use them as your moving company they truly made my move go soo smoothly and the movers were so nice and professional.
23:25 03 Jun 21
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!
13:15 03 Jun 21
Rodney and his crew were fantastic in every way. They drew up and executed their plan very efficiently. They were quick, flexible, communicative, careful, and personable. Will absolutely be using them again if and when there is a move in the future!
17:32 28 May 21
Octomovers was amazing! Kind, professional, and meticulous. I would recommend them.
22:15 24 May 21
The move was seamless, the movers were outstanding -- on time, efficient, pleasant, communicative, helpful. Lifted the stress out of the process. I could not have been happier. 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!
00:43 06 May 21
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!
13:35 26 Apr 21
Rodney, Washington, and Xavier were a fantastic team. They couldn't have made our move any easier. This was my second move with Octomovers and I couldn't recommend them enough. The team is professional, responsive, and efficient.
12:59 22 Apr 21
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.
01:55 18 Apr 21
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.
00:40 12 Apr 21
We had a wonderful experience with our move! The movers are all kind and fun and amazing at what they do.
22:13 11 Mar 21
I was very happy with the professional moving service from the booking process to the day-of experience. My items were handled with care, wrapped and protected properly, and arrived safely. The move was fast, easy and stress-free. I have recommended Octomovers to friends already and recommend you should trust them too.

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.
00:18 22 Nov 20
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.
19:57 04 Nov 20
Professional, reliable and responsive. This is the 2nd time I use Octomovers. Moving is stressful, it is so refreshing to work with a company that doesn't add to the stress, they are flexible and accommodating. They make the process seamless. I highly recommend Octomovers!
15:00 22 Oct 20
We used Octomovers to move out of our old apartment, store our items, and move into a new place. At every stage they were careful and professional. They quoted us an accurate price and, when we moved in, double checked that everything had been returned.
14:03 20 Oct 20
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.

Mike and his team were simply amazing! From the moment i reached out and requested a quote to the final item being safely placed in my new apartment, everyone was professional, friendly and very helpful.I highly recommend them to anyone planning a move in NYC!!
16:22 09 Oct 20
Ralph and his team are amazing. I highly recommend them to anyone with moving needs!
17:56 06 Oct 20
Had a great experience with Octomovers. They were professional from beginning to end - the sales team was especially communicative and had the COI on hand for my building. The movers were friendly and wore masks throughout. They also did a wonderful job packing our large breakable belongings/furniture for a cross-state move.Nothing but good things to say - would highly recommend.
19:30 05 Oct 20
Octomovers were very professional. They responded quickly to all my inquiries, showed up on time and were very efficient in moving me
19:16 05 Oct 20
Plain and simple: If you are moving, use this company.I worked with Milos. Him and his team are absolutely amazing. They responded with a quote within an hour- always available at the drop of a hat to answer a call or email. I had to change my move in date last minute from a Wednesday to a Friday and they were able to accommodate me with Rate was incredibly fair, service was fast. A third floor walk up one bedroom apartment to a fourth floor walk up apartment and they were done in a little over 2 hours.Covid Precautions: Movers were wearing masks the whole entire process.
17:04 05 Oct 20
I had a very positive experience with Octomovers. I had a tight deadline, and I was able to get a move scheduled for the middle of September. The process of setting that up was easy.The move itself was great. Truck showed up on time. Guys were very professional. They took care of everything I needed.I would highly recommend these guys. The whole job was outstanding and handled quick and efficiently. I am very happy with the job they did!
12:28 01 Sep 20
These guys are the best! On time, courteous, efficient and very careful

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.

Excellent service, great responsibility for a very competitive price. for my next move I would hire your services again. Thanks Gays !!!!!
19:58 03 Jul 20
Spectacular experience from start to finish! Milos was wonderful from my first call. Good price, on time, excellent communication from half hour call before they came to constant texts re. progress from NY apartment pick up to my son’s house where stuff was unpacked. My son raved about the 3 men on the job! I highly recommend this company!
01:54 02 Jul 20
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.
01:21 30 Jun 20
I highly recommend Octomovers. From my first call inquiring if they moved people out of New York State the level of responsiveness and professionalism was top notch. Xavier, Ralph, Paco and Juan skillfully wrapped my velvet couches and other expensive items. Not one item was damaged in any way. They worked quickly and professionally and moved me from Queens to South Jersey. They set everything up when they got to my new location. They had to have been tired but they really made sure everything was where I wanted it, they went the extra mile in every way. Price wise they were the lowest estimate I received. Look no further for quality movers!
19:18 15 Jun 20
An excellent moving company! Already did 3 moves with them (including one from NJ) - always accurate, courteous, always have enough supply, and provide with extra boxes or wardrobe boxes upon request. Will definitely use them again, and highly recommend to friends and family!
00:18 27 May 20
Octomovers is the ONLY service that you should trust for your moves. I have been using their services for over a decade - YES - a decade in New York City. They have completely orchestrated 3 apartment moves, about 7 summer moves (NYC to the Hamptons), and countless one-off jobs (moving a mattress and furniture from NYC to the Catskills, moving heavy furniture in the Hamptons from one room to the garage for construction, picking up items and then putting them in my storage unit, and going into my house to collect donations and then delivering on my behalf). Ralph and his team are top notch....A+. I have even trusted them to enter my house or apartment even if I am not home.Whatever you need moved - even across the country as now Ralph is doing long distance moves - Octomovers should be your number one choice. Big or small - they will get the job done and at a very reasonable price. I could not be happier with their continued white glove service....and during this difficult time, his team comes with masks and gloves to ensure maximum safety.Thank you Octomovers!!!

I used Octomovers this past weekend to move me from one city to another. The owner was incredibly responsive through the planning process. His crew, who were kind and professional, showed up on time and got the job done efficiently. There were no mishaps and none of my belongings were damaged. The owner checked in with me a couple times throughout the move to ensure that everything was going swell. I highly recommend them!
21:59 08 Mar 20
The entire experience, from the one-step online quote to delivery at the end of the move, was so seamless that I kept wondering what the catch was. No catch. What a change from prior moves with different companies! Everyone I interacted with at Octomovers was professional, efficient and friendly. The mover were extremely patient and persistent with a couch and a tricky staircase. I would absolutely use Octomovers again, and I would not bother with a quote from anywhere else.
