Just used them to move over this weekend. It was the most efficient move Ive ever had in NYC!!

This was an amazing experience! 3 guys swooped down on my apartment where I lived for 50 years, swiftly and professionally packed my piles of stuff in boxes, wrapped up my furniture, loaded it up and drove it 150 miles! Then they carefully unloaded everything, carrying heavy furniture up a flight of stairs! A special thank you to Rodney for making me feel calm when I was so stressed out, and to Xavier and Edison who worked tirelessly, and to all of them for taking such care handling my belongings!Also thank you Milos, for being so patient with my last minute changes to the inventory! I knew when I spoke to him that this was my moving company. I highly recommend Octomovers to my fellow New Yorkers!!!!!

There are many movers in NYC and several have very good reviews. This company was not originally one I reached out to directly for a quote but since I submitted through Yelp, they were put in the mix. They were the first to respond, quoted a very fair price which did not get adjusted during the process and were extremely efficient professional and pleasant to work with. I highly recommend them and would use them again.

Octomovers is excellent. Reasonable prices, responsive management, very professional ... They safely and efficiently handled a very complicated move for my girlfriend and I within a very tight time window.

I have used Octomovers twice now to move my office. They are very careful and take pride in their work. The first time I used them, they came early. They could do that because I was moving things out of storage, so they didn't have to wait for access to the freight elevator. So if you want a smooth move, use them!
19:26 08 Sep 22
We had an amazing experience with Octomovers. They are extremely professional and have very personalized customer service. They provided excellent follow up after our move to ensure everything was satisfactory. I can't recommend them enough!
01:39 06 Sep 22
We had a great experience moving our one bedroom apartment (with very heavy furniture) from our NYC apartment to the suburbs. Xavier, Erikson and Angel were prompt, extremely helpful and took great care of ours furniture. I would recommend this company and will look to use them in the future.
23:36 01 Aug 22
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!
22:14 26 Jul 22
Thank you so much for moving my things so carefully in just 2 hours. There were no hiccups and the team even fixed a broken doorknob 🙂
20:02 29 Jun 22
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 !!
13:20 15 Jun 22
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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
16:59 17 Apr 22
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.
15:06 30 Nov 21
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!
01:52 27 Jul 21
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'm very grateful for the service provided, I 100% recommend Octomovers. I used it twice and, the service and professionalism were perfect. thanks a lot for your service.
01:26 06 Dec 20
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!
