Customer Testimonials

Dumbo moving has moved me twice (along with several of my friends) and they are phenomenal. They always go above and beyond with their service to make sure you are happy.

When looking for quotes, they are the most affordable company in Manhattan! Pricing is based on your inventory not per hour (like other companies). This system has worked out for me since I don't have much heavy duty furniture to move. You schedule a time window for the move and both times the crew has been on time! They move quickly and efficiently no matter what type of building you live in (I used them moving into and out of a 5th floor walk up). They take the time to wrap all furniture and did not damage any of my belongings. If you want, they will also provide two free wardrobe boxes which you can hang your clothes in (and not have to take them off the hangers). I am so thankful I used Dumbo as they made my moving experiences easy and pain free.


I recently did an interstate move from South Carolina to Virginia and had unknowingly hired a moving broker for the move. Dumbo was the contracted moving company that brought our stuff to Virginia and unloaded everything. I had no interactions with Dumbo management but my driver/mover Max and his team (I never got the name of his assistant!) were great. They communicated well and arrived in the time frame they had specified the day before. They were fast and efficient and moved everything up within 1.5 hrs. They were friendly and professional. I really can't speak about Dumbo themselves, but I would definitely use Max and his team again!


These guys are AMAZING, truly. The rate they quoted me was more than fair, and there was zero sketchiness. The office guy took an inventory on the phone, generated a quote, and there was no bait & switch later (I and just about everyone I know in NYC have had nightmare experiences).

The moving crew -- Jason, Neil, and John -- were FABULOUS. Courteous, professional, and tireless. Nothing but smiles and helpfulness, even by the end of the move when they were sweaty and tired. Jason (the crew chief) in particular was fantastic; fast and obviously very experienced. That guy can build boxes, beds and bookcases in record time. All of the guys obviously like working together, and their easy camaraderie results in a laid-back casual vibe, all the while moving super fast to get the job done for the customer.

I have not one complaint, honestly. I will never go anywhere else for movers. I will recommend Dumbo to everyone I know.


I have not 1 complaint about my move. I got my rate and 2 days later I am moved into my place! The price was fair, the entire staff very professional. The movers were courteous and polite. I saw a few reviewers stated they felt pressured to tip but the guys who did my move did no such thing. I was referred to dumbo by a friend and will happily do the same.


Excellent service. Called them 2 days before the move, and they set everything perfectly. The price was cheap as well. Filip Brajkovic and Igor Nikolic were my movers, and they went above and beyond. They did an amazing job moving a ton of furniture in a quick and efficient manner, while also handling each piece with care.


I hired Dumbo for a move out of a doorman building into a 2nd floor walk-up. The staff arrived when they said they would, they were thorough and extremely friendly. They could tell I was stressed about the situation, and immediately put me at ease. They were so organized and packaged everything so carefully. They were also super attentive to my needs to help organize the furniture/boxes in the new unit so I could unpack seamlessly. Extrmeely affordable, quick, and great service. Will use next time I move for sure!


My daughter moved from a fifth floor walk up with a steep, tight stairwell to an elevator building about 10 blocks away. I was present during the move as she was unable to be away from work. The team was prompt, with excellent communication regarding arrival time. They were all friendly, professional, and worked steadily and tirelessly on what was not an easy move out. Her belongings were carefully handled and arrived safe and sound at her new place. It was a much easier move in with the elevator--but I was amazed that the job was completed so quickly. All in all, a very smooth experience!!


Thank you to Lasha, Otto, and Ernest for a successful move today! They were efficient and professional by treating our possessions as if they were their own. They carefully packaged everything up and made sure our furniture was secure. I have moved 4 times in the last 5 years and this was defiantly the easiest move with an all star team of movers.
Dumbo movers gave us the best rate and was extremely flexible with our timing. Ben was quick to respond and helped us with a short notice move.
Thank you Dumbo Movers, We will surely be recommending you to our friends and family!


We had an excellent experience with Dumbo last week and would highly, highly recommend them. It was a difficult decision to select a moving company but we are happy that we went with them, even though their costs were a little higher than other quotes we received. Alan and his team were FANTASTIC. We loved them from the moment we met them. Very efficient, friendly, and trustworthy. I highly recommend their team of guys if you're able to choose specific movers.


I was extremely satisfied with my moving experience from NY to NC. They were patient with my requests, worked with me to get the job done, and carefully delivered my valuables. Drisdain Essor and Shannon Jones did such a great job driving the truck to my new neighborhood and unloading my stuff from the truck into my new apartment. I couldn't ask for better movers! Thank you!


I don't tend to write reviews but I'd like to share a truly great experience I had with dumbo moving. This was the 2nd time I used this excellent service. I never imagined that moving in NYC could be such a pleasant experience... The Dumbo movers constantly kept a positive attitude while perfectly handling all our furniture from a 5th floor walk up. At some point, they even took the time to fix a piano wheel which was coming loose. I was quite amazed. I’m never moving anywhere without these guys!!


As someone who had never used a moving service in New York, I wasn't sure what to expect when letting other people handle our furniture and other household valuables. We booked Dumbo Moving last minute and we're very happy to say they were nothing short of incredible. Our 3 movers were extremely careful, friendly, and fast - talk about a quick and stress-free move! They even pulled down shelving and took apart our beds, tediously wrapped all of our belongings and hauled all our items up and down stairs without taking a break. I'll be recommending Dumbo to everyone. Thanks guys
