I was totally impressed by these movers. I called the day before I wanted to move, and they were able to book me the exact time that I wanted. I decided to go with the hourly rate because I wasn't done packing and was unsure of how much stuff I had.
My movers were Alex & Frank, and they were extremely professional and courteous. They arrived just on time in the middle of the 2 hour window, and they only took 2 hours to move me from my old apartment into my new one. Two hours to move my one bedroom apartment down 2 flights of stairs, drive everything across town, and move me into the new place. I was worried they would drag out the move because I went with the hourly rate, but they were very speedy! The whole move took me less time and money than the movers who only moved me into my first apartment in Brooklyn. Fantastic!
Thank you City Express Movers....

Last weekend I moved into a pretty small loft studio in a walk up building. Being a girl moving out on my own, I had lots of anxiety about the excess furniture and clothing I had. I was bugging out about whether or not everything would fit in my new apt and also wondering how the heck it would even get up to my apt with the tiny hallways and room in the actual apt.
Cameron and Dan from City Express Movers showed up right on time and the entire day was a complete breeze...at least for me! I kept looking at my mom thinking "wow, this day really isn't as stressful as I imagined it to be"! They were extremely friendly, calm and easy going which was immediately refreshing not to be spending the day with sketchy movers....I experienced that the last time I moved. Then they manuevered my furniture up narrow stairs and lifted my heavy furniture through the air, over railings, not making any dents or scratches to get everything into my little loft apt!! They seriously made moving out on my own so easy and not stressful. Not to mention they also put together my bed as a last minute request on my end.
I definitely recommend City Express Movers, they are responsive over email, thorough, hard working, chill and make your moving experience stress free!!

My man and I used City Express Movers almost exactly one year ago, moving from our two separate apartments in Queens to our new house in Brooklyn, NY. We still talk about how the move was, by far, the easiest part of our house buying adventure. Frankly, it was almost fun.
NICE GUYS: It's been long enough (shame on me!) that I don't remember the names of our movers. But they started out with 5 young men for the load in, and reduced to 3 for the load out. (Just one of the smart and cost effective things they did during this move.)
They showed up early, ate their breakfast in their truck (how's that for making sure you're on time!) and didn't start charging us until they started moving us. They all introduced themselves, and were just really nice guys. They even complimented us on our furniture, my man's art, and our new house.
During the load-in at the house, they admitted to having broken something. From the look on the guy's face, I was worried. Turns out, it was a $2 citronella candle that I'd forgotten was still stored away inside my gas grill. They actually offered to credit us the value!!
FORWARD THINKING: My apartment was up one skinny interior flight of stairs that contains a hairpin turn at the bottom. They were very smart about how to package and turn the furniture so it would fit around the bend. In one case, they realized a bookshelf I had (one I'd constructed inside the house) wouldn't fit around the turn. So they measured it, looked at the picture window in the front of my apartment, and asked if they could give it a try. It fit wonderfully, right out the window and into the truck! Now, that's some smart thinking.
In the new house, we instructed them to move all of the boxes to the first floor only. We never had to repeat those instructions. In the two rooms that we filled with boxes, they stacked and sorted them in such a way that we could still walk through the rooms, and also get to every box. Nothing was buried. It was kind of amazing, because we had A LOT of boxes. One of them must have been a physics or geometry major!
SAFE AND RESPONSIBLE: They treated even my crappiest furniture like it was priceless. Everything was wrapped in blankets and/or plastic. I had to stop them wrapping some things that just didn't warrant the extra attention. And they checked in with each other when carrying things, making sure that they had enough hands on the heaviest stuff. (I was actually pretty surprised at how strong these skinny kids were!)
At the new house, they again planned around a skinny internal stairway with TWO sharp turns...and two 105-year-old stained glass windows. Watching them work so carefully and responsibly, I didn't even worry.
BEST QUOTE OF THE MOVE: As they were carrying our unwieldy, plastic-wrapped, Queen sized Tempurpedic mattress up the stairs, one of them laughingly called out, "I can't hold it! It's conforming to my hands!" But even Swedish engineering couldn't phase these guys: they got the mattress upstairs just fine. :)
