two weeks ago i hired Yankee movers to move me from west village to midtown. Even though they were 15 min late, as soon as they arrived ( Billy, Alex and Sam) organized the move in few minutes. They wrapped every peace of furniture in blankets as they said they would, and protected it from any damage. The hard working guys finished the move very fast. Highly recommend Yankee moving Inc. for professionalism and hard work. Thank you!
Worst experience ever...paid double what Yankee quoted !!! Will never use that company again!
Pack a suitcase- For each member of the family moving, pack a suitcase as if you’re all going on a 3-day vacation, including changes of clothes, medications, eyeglasses, toiletries, etc. Keep the suitcases separated from all the other items to be moved, such as in your car, at your new workplace, etc. so you’ll have everything you need for the first few days without searching through boxes.
Create “Open Me First” boxes- Pick one or two boxes per room as "Open Me First" boxes. Put in them the things you'll need first at your new location. Then mark the sides of the boxes so you'll know which ones are which.
One at a time- Wherever possible, work on packing just one room at a time (instead of several all at once) to keep things focused and organized.
Less is more- Use packing as a way to clean out belongings for donations, a yard sale, and/or the recycling center. Aim to eliminate 1/3 of your belongings. You'll save time and expense.
Off the floor- Instead of the floor, use a completely cleared-off table top or counter in each room for packing boxes. You'll find you get much more accomplished.
Tracking small parts- When taking apart items to be moved, such as tables, securely tape screws and other small parts securely to the underside of the item. You'll always know where to look and save time putting things back together.
Save space- Use towels, pillows and t-shirts you’re packing as extra padding around fragile items. It will save room in your boxes.
Criss-cross tape- Tape boxes along the seams where the flaps meet together. Then tape perpendicularly at the center of the first tape, forming a cross.
Stacking- Stack boxes with the heaviest on the bottom, lightest on top to prevent crushing.
The 30-pound rule- Keep each box below 50 pounds absolute maximum and below 30 pounds wherever possible. Heavier boxes lead to injuries, are much more likely to burst their tape or seams and tend to get dropped.
Scale- Keep a bathroom scale in the room you're packing so you can keep the boxes below the weight limits.
They mean strictly business! – The 3 young movers ( Robbie, Zach & Ming) swiftly carried loads of heavy boxes, clumsy big furniture, racks of loose clothing, and miscellaneous loose items from a fourth floor walk-up to a two floor walk-up on a freezing day in less than 3 hours. They did so with ease, precision, resourcefulness and at a fair price.
Third time using Yankee Movers and same crew in all three of my moves, and I could not be happier. I wanted to thank Sam, Briston and Jampa for the excellent service you provide in all of my moves. Long story short... appreciate the professionalism, respect and commitment to customer satisfaction (which is very rare these days) in any service.
Dependable, Reliable and Trustworthy – I moved Lama Accounting office a year ago. I watched the movers. They performed the best job. They are fast rapid moving company. I am 100% satisfied with their work. Their performance level is standard and professional. Please use Yankee Movers for your moving needs.
True professional and reliable moving companyâ?¦. – Careful, professional, and eager to please their customer, Yankee Movers did a top notch job! First time experience with a moving company and they did not fail us, they were terrific and hardworking! The 3 men crew Eddie, Britson and Jampa sufficiently accommodated all my needs and I was fully satisfied with their service. They wrapped all my furniture carefully and even added packing paper to some of my boxes that they thought were poorly packed. They cleared my 1.5 apartment in Park Slope in less than 4 hours and another 2 hours to unload in my new apartment in Manhattan. I would have to say I was totally pleasant with the entire moving process from start to finish. Please feel free to put me in the list of your satisfied customers as a reference!
Moving Company Worth Every Penny! – This review was long overdue. Yankee Movers moved me a week before Christmas to my new house in Dix Hills. It was an all day move with packing, wrapping, crating, loading, unloading, etc. The team of 6 movers lead by Sam arrived 5 minutes after the schedule time, but since the move was a binding estimate we were not worried about them being 5 minutes late. Once all paperwork were signed, the movers got right to work. A female packer, Cynthia was packing all the kitchen items, 3 of them wrapped all the furniture’s in the living room, dining room, and the 2.5 bedrooms. The other 2 was helping carry all the wrapped furnitures along with boxes in the truck while Sam was organizing both trucks to make sure all our goods fitted perfectly in both the trucks. From past experiences, the movers I hired treated my items like garbage bags. Such was not the case with Yankee Movers.
All six movers were very careful with our belongings and treated them with extreme caution. Once loading was finished, they headed straight to my new home in Dix Hills and started unloading. The manner in which the movers carried out the entire moving procedure showed the dedication and pride they had in their work. All the furniture’s were unwrapped and placed carefully to my orders. It was a long day of manual labor and all credits goes to the movers of Yankee Movers along with their office agent Steven who was cooperative and super friendly throughout the move. Thank you again for the job well done and will absolutely recommend all my friends/relatives to your company.
Exceptional Service & Professional Moving Team! – I recently scheduled a small business move in midtown mahattan that had to take place after business hours.I had agents from different moving companies visit our office to provide an estimate, and was fortunate to find Yankee Movers. The agent, Dennis was very professional, answered all of my questions,and provided the necessary insurance requirements for the building. He gave me a 8:00 to 8:30 window when his movers would arrive, and they showed up right at 8:00. Eddie and his assistant were courteous, hard working and finished my move without any problem. The estimated time was about 8-10 hours of work but it took an extra hour of work due to elevator issue.
I would definitely recommend Yankee Movers should I need to move personally. Nice job and thank you.
Made my move completely painless! – Moving is never an exciting experience. This was my first time hiring a moving company. A friend who had previously moved recommended Yankee movers. She had used them a couple months earlier and had a great experience using them. At first I was a bit hesitant even though her move with this company seemingly went ok didn’t mean mine would too. I had expensive items and other fragile items that I was worried they would get damaged. I went on their website to check it out and still wasn’t convinced enough so I gave them a call. The representative I spoke to was professional, he was very informative and the rate was good so I decided to book with them. On the day of the move they were a little late but I didn’t make a big deal of it my only concern was that my items would be handled with care and reach safely without any damages.
I kept eye on the movers throughout the entire process. The movers seemed to know what they were doing; they wrapped and packed all items accordingly. They quickly and carefully moved all my stuff without anything being damaged. I would highly recommend Yankee Movers to anyone looking for a moving company.
