Movers, Not Shakers! has been helping people relocate into, out of, and around New York City since 2002. Our business has grown every single year. We love working for our clientele and, make no mistake, the primary driver of our growth is the word of mouth we enjoy as our customers pass our name along to their friends and family.
We charge a flat fee because we understand in New York time itself has a value like nowhere else. If we finish a move ahead of schedule, we both win.
In December of 2007, we issued a press release announcing our GREEN initiatives. They were 1. Biodiesel 2. GothamBoxes™ (reusable bins we clean, deliver, and pick up from you) and 3. Carbon Offset (We are contributors to NYC’s parks and Green Spaces).
If you haven’t tried them you owe it to yourself to try our GothamBox™ method for moving. Call us and we will help you determine how many you need. Then, approximately one week before your move, we will drop off the GothamBoxes™ to your door. They arrive clean with a fresh piece of blue painter’s tape on each one for easy labeling. Imagine packing in a bin with a hinged lid that requires NO TAPE TO MAKE A BOX. Easy, right? On move day we wrap your furniture and move the bins. Give us a call and about a week after the move, we come and pick up the empty unpacked bins. Congratulations – you have just moved and saved anywhere from 25 – 200 lbs of cardboard, not to mention the tape.
We are the first licensed moving company in New York to use bins instead of boxes for residential moving. We are one of the few to be using Biodiesel in our regular trucks. At the end of the month we may need to rent a truck or two to handle demand, and they may not be running on Biodiesel, but the intention is there.
We pay our people a living wage. That means you get a better class of mover, and we all get to enjoy the benefits of contributing to the upward mobility of all our citizens.
After 10 years serving New York, we have what it takes to move you locally or long distance. Give us a try: fill out the form on our site, or just call us. When it comes to moving, Movers, Not Shakers! is the new industry standard.
