What Lou Can Do for You
Why we're great
(Oops, I mean pretty good...)
Seriously – how much?
We were one of the first NYC moving companies to bring the sprinter van to New York City moving.
Now, you see all the big corporate movers in NYC companies trying to do the same thing.
Because it’s nice and thin for those tight streets that so many people live on. That way Because of this, we are typically able to double park close to the front entrance, saving us and you a bunch of time while doing the move.
New York apartments are known to be on the smaller side, so in most cases, we can fit everything in one trip. These vans can really fit a lot! Depending on how you are packed, we can typically fit a 1 bedroom apartment with no problem in the sprinter. If we can’t fit everything in one trip, we are more than happy to make a 2nd trip.
On average we get a one-trip move done in 3-4 hours. If the move takes two trips it’s usually around 4-6 hours (doesn’t happen often but it does happen. Our goal is to get the move done as quickly and safely as possible. We do not want to be on the move any longer than we have to but at the same time, we are not gonna cut corners that could possibly put your stuff at risk. It’s a delicate balance of working fast and hard while also taking good care of your belongings.
We have a great team of people who have worked here for a long time. Sweet Lou Moves You is an NYC moving known to pay some of the highest wages in the moving game. The reason why we do that is that this is hard work and we believe they should be paid well. Happy movers mean happy customers, happy customers mean busy movers, and busy movers mean happy movers.
We have a great track record, just check out our reviews on Yelp & Google.
Yes, those reviews are real, some movers in NYC offer discounts to customers if they will leave a 5 star review. I’ve heard some horror stories from customers who were like “the price jumped hundred of dollars but they promised to cut it down some if we left a review so we just did it to try and save some cash.” Our reviews are legit—we never pressure our customers to leave reviews.
New York City Moving and Storage Tips
Moving in New York City for the first time? Welcome home! This town is an awesome place to live but it can seem a little overwhelming at first, right? The good news is that it doesn’t have to be. Of course, if you’ve lived in the city for a minute already, you might feel like you already know the ins and outs of the city. But, trust us—every borough has its own unique vibe.
So, stop searching for “moving companies near me” and start following our advice and tips to get the most out of your move in New York City.
Did you find a chill new apartment or house? Sweet. Now, start planning for your move as soon as possible. It’s never too early to start packing. You’d be surprised how fast the big moving day will get here.
Schedule an appointment with your bank and credit card company to set up the new address before you actually move. Your mail will be forwarded to your new location, but it can take several weeks for this change to take place.
Make sure you know who your landlord and building manager are in your new home. If you have any questions about leases or problems with the building, this is the person to talk to (not Lou).
Don’t underestimate your need for moving boxes. You will need so many more than you think!
Be sure that your lease allows pets in your new home if it’s important to you and your family. New York City is full of dog-friendly housing and pet-friendly apartments for rent, but some areas are more welcoming and pet friendly than others.
Research your local New York City traffic laws before you move. If you’re planning to switch from a residential street parking space to a meter spot, or vice versa, make sure that you know the rules and regulations regarding parking in the area.
Get the low down on your new neighborhood so you feel at ease in your new place. We recommend checking out metro stops, local parks, and restaurants. This will help you feel right at home more quickly.
Take pictures of how your electronics are set up. You’d be surprised how much of a hassle it can be trying to reconnect all of those wires. A picture can give you something to look at while you reassemble your setup.
Create a moving budget and timeline for your move. When all of the details are on paper, it’s easier to decide how much money and resources you need for your move. You don’t want to blow your moving budget after all!
