General Concerns

Why should I hire Queens County Long Distance Moving Company?

Long Distance Moving Company of Queens Co. was the first to offer an all-inclusive flat charge — there are no hidden fees with us: our pricing is customized for your goods and includes all labor and travel expenditures. Our fleet of vehicles and high-quality materials set us apart from other moving firms, as do our team of moving experts and cutting-edge technology.

Which days of the week are the greatest for moving?

Wednesdays are the greatest day because there are fewer requests, followed by Tuesdays and Thursdays. Fridays and weekends are typically the busiest days, resulting in rivalry for elevator access and potential delays. Weekend limitations are prevalent in NYC buildings, so it’s smart to check with yours before arranging a date.

How far in advance should I plan my relocation?

When moving locally, Long Distance Moving Company of Queens Co. recommends leaving at least three weeks in advance. We recommend four weeks for long-distance or international travel.

Do you transport pianos?

Absolutely, we are professionals at moving pianos, with a skilled staff handling the entire process.

Can you relocate me over state lines or to another country?

Absolutely, we provide both local and long-distance moving services.

Can the weather have an impact on my move?

When it comes to adverse weather, it’s vital to consider delays and traffic, but your relocation WILL NOT be canceled unless the city issues a travel/weather alert.

What do movers charge?

Your price will be determined by your merchandise, distance traveled, and the intricacy of the transfer. Furniture size, amount of major objects, and level of fragility all play a factor in deciding the cost of your relocation. As long as your inventory remains constant, the estimate provided by your Relocation Counselor will be the final pricing. Whenever your inventory changes, the rate will be adjusted upfront to ensure there are no surprises.

What is the number of hours included in the flat rate?

How many hours will it take to properly transport your inventory? We do not charge by the hour and instead offer an all-inclusive flat rate tailored to your move. Recognizing that relocating can be unpredictable, Long Distance Moving Company of Queens Co. decides to prioritize efficiency over time limitations.

Is Long Distance Moving Company of Queens Co.’s moving pricing inclusive of boxes and packing?

Some things will always be packed for you as part of our all-inclusive moving service, and the boxes will always be provided free of charge. We also provide comprehensive moving services, which include all packing and unloading of your belongings. Our specialists are trained to pack your belongings quickly so that your dishes, pots and pans, books, fragile items, papers and photographs, Televisions and electronics, lamps, small mirrors, sculptures, artwork, and any glass or marble pieces are fully protected. If you plan on doing your own packing, you may get the exact boxes we use on every move from the box store.

WHILE AND AFTER THE MOVE

How much gratuity should I leave?

Local services should account for 10-20% of your move, according to industry standards. For long-distance moves, a 5-8% split between the pickup and delivery teams is recommended. You can leave a tip on the Long Distance Moving Services of Queens Co. website during or after your move.

How will the movers know which objects to bring and which to leave behind?

During the initial meeting, your Relocation Professional will create a list of your inventory, labeling all things that will be moved or not.

Can the movers set up my furniture in my new house?

Absolutely. We also provide bespoke floor plans and furniture arrangements upon delivery.

Do the movers take a break for lunch?

Yes, if it’s an all-day job. You will not be charged for their lunch breaks because Long Distance Moving Company of Queens Co. does not charge an hourly cost.

Can I bring liquids? Should I bring food?

Food is not permitted for long-distance movements due to state rules. Food and beverages should be the final items packed for local moves.

Queens, NY FAQ

The complete schedule can be found here. What are the best days to move to Queens, New York?

Your moving experience in Queens, New York, will differ based on the day of the week, the month, and the season. Weekends are often the busiest days of the week for moving, while Tuesday through Thursday is the least crowded. It is advised to attempt to avoid moving during the beginning and last days of the month. Because many leases begin and expire around this period, moving companies are in high demand. Moving companies often regard October through April to be “off-season.” This implies that movers will be more readily available, and costs may be reduced, making now an excellent time to relocate.

How can I locate a trustworthy moving company in Queens, New York?

Locating a reputable moving company in Queens, New York, necessitates some investigation. Because of the city’s narrow areas, high-rise buildings, and other problems, such as limited parking, NYC movers must be properly trained and skilled. A few things to check for when investigating a moving business are licensing and insurance, choosing a company that understands the city well, and reading reviews and customer testimonies.

How do I traverse Queens, New York, narrow and congested streets, with a moving van or truck?

After you’ve done your research and have a decent sense of where you’re going and how to get there securely, it’s crucial to remember to take it slow and stay watchful during the actual move. Keep an eye out for pedestrians and bikers, and be prepared to come to a complete stop. Using GPS can help you keep on track, and if you have someone with you who can sit in the passenger seat and help you navigate, it will relieve some of the responsibility, allowing you to focus on driving.
