As Seen In:
We’d give them 50 stars if we could. Matt and his crew moved us yesterday from a 5th floor walkup apartment in Manhattan to a house 100 miles away. They made what could have been a difficult day for us into a total pleasure. Extremely professional, careful, competent, beyond the call of duty– in a word, perfect. And at a great rate. Pre-move communication was also prompt, friendly and accurate.

Metropolis Moving is the best moving company I have ever come across. I have moved 4x before this within NYC and never had the same kind of customer service and positive experience. They were quick to respond, efficient, and flexible while scheduling. They were affordable and flexible on adding/changing items to my move last minute. The movers were so sweet, nice, and got the job done quickly. I would HIGHLY recommend them for any move you have.

Moving is such a stressful time but Metropolis Moving made it a little bit easier. They were on time with a fair price and were communicative all the way through. Since COVID started, it was rough to find movers. They were accommodating and fast. I highly recommend them to anyone!

This was my second time using them for a complicated, 3 part move and I was so impressed with the service from start to finish. When moving day came, Chris, Darryl and Nate arrived early, were friendly, took all COVID precautions very seriously, and handled all of our belongings gently but efficiently. We could not believe how fast but well the team worked. I got quotes from numerous places and Metropolis’ price was very fair, and having a no-stress move situation is worth a lot! I am so glad I went with Metropolis and will definitely use them again next time we need to move.
I used Metropolis Moving to move from Brooklyn to New Jersey this week, and I couldn’t have asked for better movers! The quote I received was great and they were transparent about pricing (fixed rate + cost for gas/tolls + COI). No hidden fees whatsoever. They confirm your final moving list multiple times (I found this to be extremely helpful!) and I even had some additions to my list and they kept my price flat which was very much appreciated. Moving out of my old apartment and moving into my new one was seamless thanks to these guys. If you’re looking for movers, I highly recommend Metropolis Moving!

15/10 would recommend Metropolis Moving – I used them 3 times over the last 7 years and they always have the best quote, the best team, and are incredibly communicative. They consistently have the best pricing and do not try to swindle you into a higher quote. As you can imagine, moving in COVID is stressful but the whole team was so respectful, wore masks – even took off shoes when entering into my roommate’s bathroom. They made my move completely seamless and I really appreciated their thoroughness. This is def the best moving company in NYC!

I can’t recommend Metropolis Moving enough.The customer service leading up to the move was great. My new spot was an hour and a half drive from the old spot, and they had no problem with that at all. The communications were clear, concise, and quick. It was a long day for the three of them, moving heavy things from my fifth floor walk up and then making the long drive. They remained so kind and positive throughout which helped with my stress. Five stars all around.

I cannot say enough about Metropolis moving! These were the nicest, most professional young men I have ever dealt with. They were even very fair in price when counting inventory (I had A LOT more boxes than I expected!) I have moved 7 times in the past 18 yrs I have been here and this by far was the best service. Thank you guys seriously your sweet dispositions, politeness and wonderful customer service are very much appreciated!

Five stars isn’t even enough!! Once again Metropolis was AMAZING!!! Paulie and Nate were like lighting getting everything packed and unpacked. But even more, they were so helpful and kind. When they saw our elderly neighbor in the hall they politely made small talk (even though they were in the midst of moving up and down 4 flights) and told her to bring a light sweater if she goes out! Seriously, I will never move without Metropolis. Highly recommended.

I would highly recommend Metropolis Moving to anyone considering a move in NYC or the surrounding area. I recently completed a move from NYC to a PA suburb. The team was very professional and treated my items with such care. The team was very organized, and prepared for my move, it made the experience as stress free as possible. I would definitely trust Metropolis and would be my go to for any other moves in the area.

Highly recommend Metropolis Moving! My husband and I moved from Astoria to Connecticut during the pandemic and Will & Dan made the process so seamless and stress-free for us. They were incredibly professional, punctual and efficient. Would 100% use them again –and if you’re reading this review, you should too : )

Fred and Will delivered an extremely delicate and large piece of furniture from Mid-town Manhattan all the way to LI East End. The piece was carefully and thoughtfully moved and set up on the new location. BTW-Uzzi at Metropolis’ main office was also especially thoughtful. This company and their employees rate 5 stars easily. Oh, one last thing, they found the wedding ring of the now passed owner and returned it to the family.
