    Your Manhattan Moving & Storage Company

    Manhattan may feel huge when you walk its streets but imagine this! The entire island measures only 23 square miles and contains more than 70,800 people per square mile. That’s a lot of people living in a super small area. And when you have to move, things get really complicated.

    Whether you’re trading the West Side for the East Side, heading uptown from the Village to Harlem, or leaving Manhattan for another borough or state, you have a lot of planning to do. Not only are there all kinds of parking restrictions in each neighborhood, but there are also myriad building restrictions dictating how and when you can move. Luckily, Samba Moving has been relocating people to and from Manhattan for more than a decade and brings an unsurpassed level of expertise to every job. We’ll handle all the details for you so your Manhattan move will be smooth and stress-free, guaranteed!

    Tornike, George, Beka were awesome! Super friendly and professional. Showed up on time, moved everything quickly and gently. We have a huge couch that hardly fit through the door, but they got it into our new apartment no problem and with no damage. They made our moving process pain free and for a good price, I’d highly recommend them.

    Tornike and George did a fantastic job. Quick, professional and they took great care of my things. Samba’s pricing was significantly more affordable than competitors and their service didn’t disappoint. I’ll definitely go back to Samba for my next move.

    The contractors from samba were great. One of their names was Joe. They did a great job at wrapping up all of the furniture we needed to move from my grandparents home to my own including a treadmill and a grandfathers clock. Would use again and would highly recommend using Samba Moving!

    A big 5 stars! Thank you so much... Joe and Nicholas’ team did a perfect job and in the best way - I apologize as I don't how to write the first name of the third person who was absolutely amazing as well. They even gave their best shot to move a quite big piece of furniture through the stairs. Super helpful and polite; no stress but fun instead. They took very good care of all my belongings and I cannot thank them enough for that.

    Absolutely amazing! I loved my experience with Samba Moving! Erika helped my mom and I get everything in order prior to the move, she was very nice and responsive - answered every question we had along the way. And moving day was a breeze! Joe and Nicholas did a LOVELY job, they were extremely friendly and really took care of my things. I could not be happier. Usually I have awful, exhausting, stressful, and anxiety-inducing moving days - not this time. I was so happy with their attitudes towards the job, they were great!

    One of the best moving experiences I have ever had! Kristin was amazing to work with prior to the move. She was very pleasant, professional, quick to respond and produce the necessary documentation. Tornike and his crew were kind, on time, professional and packed up my apartment in no time. They broke down and rebuilt all of my furniture all before 12pm that same day! 10/10 for me and I will most certainly use and recommend them to anyone! Moving has never been so simple!
