The Bellhop team I had to help me move was wonderful. They were quick, thorough, and made moving into my 5th floor walk up look easy. I was so impressed with the way the team took care with my items and appreciated their kindness and professionalism. Due to unexpected weather, the schedule we had established before hand had to be changed. The team of movers I had were quick to adapt and they communicated with me throughout the process which really helped me feel at ease about everything. I will be recommending Bellhop to all my friends and family.

Booking a last-minute move? If your move is booked for three days out, we'll only charge you the deposit/cancellation fee if we've assigned a team to you prior to your cancellation.

Easy enough, right?

Frequently asked questions about NYC Movers

In order to ensure a smooth move, it's important that you hire a moving company at least two months before your scheduled date. If this isn't possible, then four weeks is the minimum amount of time before which you should schedule an estimate or quote with a moving company and have them help with moving day logistics.

Hire Bellhop to make the process more enjoyable and less stressful. They will bring their supplies, pack your things for you, take care of lifting heavy items, and move them from point A to B all while reducing stress to create a swift and stress-free experience.

When hiring a professional moving service, make sure you understand the type of moving service type you need (are you looking for commercial moves, inter-state moves, long distance movers to help you get from Queens to Los Angeles, California, or short-notice moves and same day moves?), check out the company's customer satisfaction track record and online reputation, and make sure they provide clear up front rates and fees as well as a pre-move walk through. The best-rated moving services will also be able to provide a customized move plan and hassle-free full-service move. Also, check online reviews. Read the customer reviews on Google, Yelp, and Foursquare to see what kind of moving experience past customers have had, and if the company places a priority on customer satisfaction.

How long does it take NYC Movers like Bellhops to move a 3 bedroom home? On average, if you dedicate your days solely on packing and moving, it will take approximately 3-5 days. Keep in mind that this is not 1-2 hours of work each night as you are expecting; more like dedicating yourself completely over the course of 5 full working days without any other distractions. Hiring professional movers to help with packing, especially the heavy items, bulky items, or specialty items, can help save you valuable time and create an efficient moving experience.

It's important to remember that the actual time it takes for a professional mover varies greatly from move-to-move. For example, local moves for a studio apartment might take about 2 hours on weekdays while moving a three bedroom apartment with one van can take up to 7 hours or more depending on what you're planning on taking with you and how far your new home is away from where you are now.

It’s difficult when looking at all of this information in one big chunk! The individual breakdown by size provides us with much less overwhelming numbers for each type of residence we may need help relocating such as studios & 1 bed apartments (2 hrs), two bedrooms homes (3–5 Hrs) and finally 3+ bedroom residences which could be between 5-8 hours.

Bellhops NYC movers provides a complete packing experience. They'll take care of all packing and unpacking so that nothing gets broken or lost during transit. And their trained team will get things done in half the time it would have taken if you had to do it yourself! Unpacking services can make for a smooth move across the five boroughs. Our full-service movers are the best when it comes to handling delicate items like glassware, art pieces and other fragile goods--because they know how these types of moves require special attention from professionals who understand what's at stake.

Now it’s your move.

We understand that every move is unique, which is why you have the ability to tailor your services to best fit your needs. Not sure where to begin? Let us help you unpack your options.
