Not exactly sure how this company can be "reported closed" because I just used them last week!
Mine was a short, small move (5 blocks out of a studio apt). They were terrific from the first phone call inquiry - got right back to me and provided a complete and accurate quote. We were able to communicate via email and they handled getting my new building the insurance info required as well as reserving the service elevator (and followed up everything with an email copy to me).
On move day, the 3 guys (Sebastian, Antonio and Kalsang) were early, polite, professional and FAST! They juggled the old building's elevator (no freight), parking (5 pm on a weekday) and my stuff with ease.
I had most things packed but during a move things get crazy, so not everything was quite mover-ready; no problem for these guys. I had a couple of things that were somewhat fragile - pointing them out to the guys got them treated with special care and everything arrived at my new place intact and faster than I could have imagined. They finished the job an HOUR earlier than estimated!
I've used Oz three times and will not hesitate to use them again. Thanks guys -- you made an incredibly stressful move a breeze!
As for tips - I usually look around the internet for what other people do, so I was prepared to pay 20% of the total move bill -- they work for it and there shouldn't be a surprise when they expect a tip at the end of the move. You should MOST DEFINITELY add an additional 15 - 20% to the original estimate you're given to tip the guys. The reason people become so aggressive in asking for tips is when people before you haven't tipped appropriately ... so it goes to reason.
The best moving experience I've ever had. – My experience with Oz Moving - and, in particular, David Donen - prompted me to come online and create a citysearch account just to tell people how absolutely amazing their service is. Do not even bother looking elsewhere; you won't find better. Believe me.
I've moved many, many times - in Boston and in New York - and this was far and away the best moving experience I've ever had. Period. And I was not the easiest of moves, either. Not only did I change my move-out AND move-in dates several times (building issues), but I had to contact David the day before my move to change my move entirely - to storage for a day before moving to my new apartment. If I had been dealing with another company, I would have been completely hysterical. Dealing with Oz was absolutely seamless. They showed up at 7:50 for an 8:00 am move, and the foreman (Joe?) showed me the paperwork and explained all expenses while the two other guys began moving my stuff right away. The whole move was completed in a lot less time than I originally anticipated.
Please, do yourself a favor and do not waste your time looking at any other moving companies. I've used them and they aren't good. You simply cannot find a better moving company.
Amazing service with a professional manner – As a person who is in the customer service and in the shipping industry, I was overwhelmed by the fantastic service that was provided in my move this past weekend.
I required a pick up at 4 locations that began on time at 8am, we were completely offloaded by 2:30p. The 4 man team, worked quickly and never once got lost in the process from location to location and nor did I ever hear a complaint.
I was pleased from the quoting process to final delivery and would recommend OZ moving to anyone that asks for said services.
Thank you for making a process that can be strees, very easy for my family.

Will never move without Oz – When moving my boyfriend and I had decided to do it ourselves. We were moving from Midtown Manhattan to Westchester county. We got up early, headed to Uhaul and were prepared for the day. When we got to Uhaul the place was a madhouse, the truck we rented wasn't there and the line was out the door. While standing in line I looked up moving companies on my phone and called Oz. In the time it took us to get back to our apartment Oz was already on their way!
They showed up, same day, within an hour of us calling, packed up our apartment and in a whirlwhind had us on our way to our new place. Everything was packed securely, shrink wrapped and put on the truck.
We realized after we got to our new place that driving the uhaul would have been a nightmare, we wouldn't havfe been able to take any of the roads we knew to get to the new place because we would have been driving a truck!
Oz showed up, unpacked everything, unwrapped everything, set up our furniture and that was that.
They were professional, courteous, efficient and friendly.
I reccomend them to anyone that tells me they are moving!
Excellent Moving Service – I have used Oz twice for one local and one out of town move. The movers were extremely fast and courteous. They were also careful with out belongings. In the past, I have had movers leave my things on the street while the workers took breaks and treat our things roughly. Not Oz. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I recommend them very highly.
Great experience with Oz Moving – My fiancee and I have decided to use Oz moving for our recent move. We moved two apartments into one and dreaded choosing movers after we heard some horror stories from friends. We got some good recommendations for these guys and called them for a price. I spoke to a very helpful lady who took a list of our belongings and gave me an estimate based on hourly rate. The rate was very close to other companies we called but the estimated time was a little more than other companies. At the end of the move it was clear that our move could not have been completed within the time estimated by some other moving companies we surveyed. We decided to use Oz because of our friends’ recommendation and gut feeling. Oz movers arrived at my place fifteen minutes early and took the time to explain the paperwork we were signing, survey the apartment and prepare their equipment before they started working on the scheduled time. After loading my stuff they drove to my fiancee’s place and loaded her stuff before going to our new place.
The move took all day and the guys did not stop for a minute, they wrapped all of our furniture with these pads and moved everything quickly and efficiently. The head guy, I think his name was Mike or Mark, was on top of his guys for the whole time and orchestrated a well-done operation.
A day we thought would be horrific ended up being one of the easiest days surrounding the whole moving process.
Now we just have a mountain of boxes to unpack. Maybe we should have had them do it too.
I warmly recommend Oz moving for a peace of mind. We definitely got ours.
GREAT JOB, THANK YOU DAVID DONEN – THE GUYS AT OZ SHOWED UP EARLY AND DID MY ENTIRE MOVE FROM THE UPPER EAST SIDE TO SOHO IN UNDER 3 HOURS. THEY HANDLED EVERYTHING FROM WRAPPING TO HELPING ME UNPACK THE HEAVY FRAGILE BOXES. I ONLY WISH I USED THEM FOR ALL MY PREVIOUS MOVES....
The only moving company I`ll use – I used to use another known moving company for years.
I schduled an appointment to price the move and they never showed up or called, so I decided to try Oz - from the first call to the last box that was moved to my new place it was a great experience, everyboby was courteous and helpful and the crew was caredul and quick.
I will definitely recommend Oz to all my friends and family.
I live in Jersey City, I have four children, and I needed to move. Doing it myself was out of the question. I work for the Neiman Marcus Group and one of my co-workers used Oz several months ago. She had nothing but great things to say about Oz Moving, the initial estimate was accurate and the movers were great. The foreman on the job whose name was Boris found $1000 that she forgot about and gave it to her, she was completely shocked. I have never heard that type of honesty, especially in the moving industry. I had to give them a shot... Oz exceeded all my expectations, they arrived early and put all my fears to rest as the three man crew they sent worked tirelessly to make an otherwise difficult task look so easy. I would recommend Oz Movers to anyone in search of an honest quality moving service.
Thank You Oz!!!
Great Job ! – David D. was great, the price was exact, the guys were on time , efficient and nice....in and out.
Use these guys.
