Let our moving experts help you relocate across state lines
Headquartered in Brooklyn, NY, our courteous movers will expertly pack you in one day and move you on another day for long distance moves within 500 miles of NYC.

We can provide overnight storage at Extra Space Storage, where we also park our fleet. We don’t charge by volume or weight, but by the hour. Whether you’re moving within or beyond New York State, let our moving experts help you relocate within 500 miles of NYC:

- NYC to Boston

Because we love both NYC and going to new places, we don’t outsource any part of our long distance move operations within 500 miles of NYC. The same team that packs you for the move will be there with you in the end to unpack.
For moves down the I-95 Corridor to South Carolina, Georgia and Florida; and across the I-40 & I-80 Corridors to points West, we have nurtured strategic partnerships with private carriers. We pack and load in NYC and they deliver with the same care and attention to detail you have come to expect from JP Urban Moving. And our outstanding friendly customer service will see you from door to door.
What to expect on your Long Distance Move
What happens the day before the move?
As with local moves, the day before your move, you’ll receive a text confirmation from dispatch. In the hour leading up to the move, 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 day one of the move?
Dispatch will text you upon arrival of the crew, and will continue to text throughout the moving process to make sure everything is going well and to smooth out any wrinkles. After the crew has arrived and parked the truck, the foreman will come to your apartment/home to complete the paperwork, which is essentially comprised of clocking in and confirming your valuation choice. Next, the crew will prep the building as necessary, checking for pre-existing damage to the building, the apartment and your belongings. After getting supplies from truck, we will pack, disassemble and wrap as required before loading boxes, then furniture, onto the truck. Just before departing for overnight storage at Extra Space, we will check to ensure that everything to be moved has been loaded, and there is no damage.
What happens on day two?
Bright and early, the truck will depart Brooklyn. At the new location, we will prep the building as necessary, while checking for pre-existing damages. After unloading furniture and boxes, we 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 and heading back to Brooklyn.
Are you planning a long distance relocation?
Making a long distance relocation easier
- Planning ahead – If you know about your relocation well in advance, you’ll have the luxury of planning. And this isn’t something you should put off. Even with the best long distance movers Brooklyn, this kind of move can get complicated. Planning will allow you to fix any mistakes on time, and you’ll approach moving day with much less pressure and stress.
- Downsizing – Once you start looking for moving companies, you’ll realize that movers mostly offer quotes based on weight. So, if you get rid of stuff you don’t need, your long distance move will be much cheaper, to begin with. And this is important because costs can really stack up during a move.
- Deducting moving costs – Under specific circumstances, moving costs are tax deductible – so relocation may save you tax money if you know what you’re doing. Of course, you may need to consult a financial expert.

- Gino P. New York, NY
They moved me from a one bedroom in NY to a two bed in DC. From start to finish they were great. They were easy to communicate with and gave good quotes. It was easy to talk to them about details of the move. I've never felt like I've had an easy move before. These guys are great. Hire them. Seriously - stop looking for other companies and just hire these guys right now.
- Alice F. New York, NY
I was somewhat skeptical about all the 5 star reviews, but these guys more than earn it! We had a move from New Haven, CT to Ridgewood and they arrived on the dot at 8:30 AM. They brought two trucks and six men and finished up at 11:30PM with 9 men unloading and unwrapping with never a lack of cheerfulness and concern. I heartily recommend them!
- Hank P. Queens, NY
These guys are amazing! I went with them on recommendation of a friend for my move from NYC to PA. From first contact with Chris for estimate and scheduling, to the last box being delivered, I have nothing but great things to say. They were on time, very professional and friendly, hard working, fast working, efficient. Mine was a complicated move, but they handled it beautifully. They took better care of my belongings than I do! I strongly recommend these guys -- they are the best there is.
