I had organized and confirmed a move within midtown Manhattan for my boss with Jet Moving Systems over a month in advance. They contacted me through a post I had made through Billy.com asking for quotes. The Sunday evening, before the move on Monday morning, I was contacted as promised to confirm the arrival time at 5.10pm. I was then called again an hour later at 6.15pm to tell me they could not make it after all as their truck was broken down due to a snow storm 2 nights before. They did try to reschedule for the following Tuesday but this was not an option.
I would not recommend this moving company as I had to spend 3 hours on a Sunday evening trying to find another moving company on such short notice for the following morning....
Oh, and they never replied to my email or called to follow up and apologize.
The happy ending: Petros at Move -It 4 Less was able to confirm and accomodate my move that evening and had arranged for the movers to arrive first thing on Monday morning. He was in touch with me every step of the way and provided the necessary insurance papers to the management buildings before they arrived.
Not only did I save $350 with this Move-It 4 Less, but they also did the move in less time than had been estimated with Jet Moving.
I notice their previous reviews are less than complimentary, but in this instance they were amazing.

I have used Move It 4 Less twice since I have lived in New York, the past 5 years, and both times I have been very happy. My most recent experience in June 2012, was no exception. I had a very complicated move where the movers were required to pick up items in one location on UWS and deliver to 3 different locations (2 on the west side of Manhattan and the third stop in Astoria). I was charged $85 and hour for 3 movers (I think it was a mid month moving special). The three movers were amazing, they showed up on time, completed the job in 5 hours and didn't break a thing! They were courtesy and had a good attitude and my boyfriend and I were both very very impressed with them.
Additionally setting this up with Petros, the owner, was quite easy. He was very communicative, supplied one of the buildings I moved to with an insurance certificate without question, and made me feel assured that this move would happen on schedule. (I noticed some moving companies charge you for a certificate of insurance which I find ridiculous. If you have insurance, then it should not cost anything to email a scanned copy of the certificate over to a building. I think many of those companies that charge but insurance for you move and are not a company with legit insurance). Another reason I was very pleased with this company.
Petros and I did, at the end of the move, have a misunderstanding about how much extra the drive time was (he thought I was quoted and hour and I had in writing a half hour) and that shrink wrap and tape was extra which I was unaware and thought I had been told otherwise. After some discussions, Petros only charged the 1/2 hour and refunded the packing materials. Though I wasn't thrilled with a misunderstanding and having to deal with this detail at the end, Petros ended up handling it well and has made me a repeat customer who just recommended this company to 2 sets of friends. For my next move, instead of dealing with quotes from 6-8 moving companies, as I did this time, I will simply book this company.

From the initial email communication to the actual moving day, Moveitforless.com made my move SO easy. I had lots of original artwork in frames, and tons of glass dishes, and everything arrived, in absolutely perfect condition. The gentlemen who moved my belongings were professional and everything about the experience was positive. Hire them to move you! You will be grateful, especially if you've seen rates from the other movers around here... yikes!
