What to expect from your NYC local move

What happens the day before the move?

The day before your move, you’ll receive a text confirmation from dispatch. In the hours leading up to the move, our dispatch will send a group text linking you, the driver and the foreman, via which you can all communicate during the course of the move.

What happens on the day of the move?

Dispatch will text you upon arrival of our Brooklyn local moving crew. They will continue to text throughout the moving process to make sure everything is going well and to smooth out any wrinkles. After the JP Urban Moving crew has arrived and parked the truck, the foreman will come to your apartment/home to complete the paperwork. This paperwork is essentially comprised of clocking in and confirming your valuation choice.

Next, our local movers will prep the building as necessary, checking for pre-existing damages to the building, the apartment and your belongings. After getting supplies from truck, we will pack, disassemble and wrap as required before loading the boxes, then furniture, onto the truck. Just before departing, we will check the apartment and building to ensure that everything has been moved and there is no damage.

What happens once we arrive at the new location?

At the new location, we will prep the building as necessary, while checking for pre-existing damages. After unloading furniture and boxes, our Brooklyn residential movers will unwrap furniture and re-assemble, position and unpack as required. Lastly, we will clean up and ask you to check the truck to ensure that everything has been unloaded before settling up.

We are responsive to online estimate requests, during which process questions are answered timely. Once a job is booked, you decide what level of valuation is appropriate for the move, after which all building issues are addressed, including issuance of Certificates of Insurance (COIs), deadlines, elevator windows, floor protection requirements, etc. Finally, the move is put on our schedule.

What Happy Customers Say

- John B. W. Brooklyn, NY

I had hired several local and coast to coast movers before, both small and big name companies, JP Urban is by far my favorite! I am also highly supportive of their plastic bin option, very convenient, easier to pack, stack and earth friendly; will recommend this moving company to anyone without any hesitation.


I don’t usually write reviews, but I had such a stellar experience w/ JP Urban Moving, I felt I had to…I moved within the same Brooklyn neighborhood and saw them on YELP. First off, it was super easy to book an appointment. I was pleasantly surprised by the level of communication throughout the move. The crew of movers were very friendly and extremely efficient. They were affordable, and that’s important! If I could give them more stars, I would, 5 is not enough! Don’t waste time looking for another company, book and get packing. Oh, wait, they can pack for you too!
