Long Island City movers

Great choice for your next Move

5.0 based on 72 reviews

A once heavily industrialized area of Queens, Long Island City is now a thriving residential neighborhood with plenty of housing options and a youthful, creative, and family-friendly atmosphere. What were once abandoned factories have been renovated into studio spaces, lofts, and art galleries. Long neglected waterfronts have been transformed into riverside parks and communal areas.

While the majority of the businesses that once made up Long Island City’s economy have long since disappeared, there are still traces of the area’s historic manufacturing identity, with a few factories still in operation. With the rise of tech and many other popular industries, there is also plenty of new employment opportunities to be found in Long Island City.

    Enjoy you new home

    After the moving truck has left and your furniture and boxes have been unloaded and arranged in your new home, you can finally start to enjoy your new space. Have the essentials at hand, take the time to settle in, and get to know your new home and surroundings.


  • Do movers pack your clothes for you?

    Yes, we can bring wardrobe boxes on the day of the move and put your clothes into those boxes. You can either purchase or rent this type of box from us.

  • Can I request an in-home estimate?

    Sure thing! If you are looking for interstate moving services and your moving size is greater than 2 bedroom apartment, we provide on-site estimates. One of our managers will schedule an appointment with you and come on a certain day and time.

  • How do I choose a professional moving company?

    Nowadays, we search for everything online, and moving is no exception. Check out reviews online, and you will better understand which company is worth relying on. For example, Born to move has over 1,000 five-star reviews online, and we are proud of our online presence.

  • How do professional movers load a truck?

    We have a strategy to load a truck based on our experience and years in business. First come boxes, totes, and containers. Then we load stackable furniture such as nightstands, desks, bookshelves, and tables. In the end, we put all items which could not be stacked. We use straps to fix everything inside the truck. No single item will be loose during the transportation.

  • What to Expect when MOVING?

    We know that sometimes during the moving process, some of the items may get damaged. At Born to Move, we never leave our customers one-on-one with the problems after this kind of issue. We have a claim department that will go through the claim process with you and ensure you get reimbursement for any damages that happened.

  • How to pack a kitchen?

    If you decide to pack up your kitchen, please use cardboard boxes to put the dishes and glassware. Use as much packing paper and bubble wrap as needed so that it would be broken during transportation. Please mark those boxes as fragile, so we will not put other boxes over fragile ones.
