How to choose a reputable Mover in New York City?

When planning a Move, it is most important that you choose a reputable mover for the job.  Whether you are moving to or from Brooklyn, Moving to Manhattan, Moving to Queens, or Moving to the Bronx or Staten Island. The quality and professionalism of your moving company will make or break your moving experience. A trusted moving and storage company, (such as Usantini movers) is a “MUST” when you are moving. Use our four simple rules to choose a reputable mover in New York city:

Moving, pet moving, U.Santini moving and storage, moving to brooklyn
Move your pets responsively









  • Get a written estimate from several movers.
 – The estimate should be based on an actual inspection of your household goods.
  • Make sure the mover has insurance and is licensed by the proper authority.
 – For moves from one State to another, a U.S. DOT number is issued by FMCSA. You can double-check a mover’s license on www.protectyourmove.gov. For moves within a State, requirements vary. Check with your State, county or local consumer affairs agency or your State attorney general.
  • Remember your priorities when choosing a mover. 
If you hire a mover based solely on the cheapest price, you may be sacrificing other things that are actually more important, such as getting your possessions moved and delivered on time. And remember, movers are required by law to deliver your goods for no more than ten percent above the price of a non-binding estimate. This is known as the 110 percent rule.
  • Do your homework. 
Read “Your Rights and Responsibilities When You Move,” a booklet from the Federal government that your mover is required to give you if you are moving from one State to another. This booklet also has information you’ll need if your goods are lost or damaged during the move. Finally, check the mover’s complaint history with local consumer advocacy organizations, such as the Better Business Bureau.

Avoid the following types of movers:

  • Movers that do not have a website. – Most companies have websites that list their services, service history, destinations they will move to, and roughly how much it will cost. This is a great place to get background information and to start compiling a list of potential companies. Also, most companies will list contact information, including e-mail addresses, allowing you to ask questions and be provided with a written response.
  • The mover doesn’t offer or agree to an on-site inspection of your household goods and gives an estimate over the phone or Internet—sight-unseen. If these estimates sound too good-to-be-true. They usually are. Insist on a house visit for your move.
  • The moving company demands a large amount of cash or a large credit card deposit before your move. These types of companies probably suffer from a large number of pre-move cancellations. Avoid these kinds of companies.
  • The company has a website but the website has no local address and no information about licensing or insurance.
  • The moving company does not offer insurance and claims that all of your goods are covered by their insurance.
  • When you call the mover, the telephone is answered with a generic “Movers” or “Moving company,” rather than the company’s name. These are probably lead brokers who harvest moving leads are sell them to moving companies. They are not movers and might expose you to numerous disreputable moving companies that will call you day and night and promise the world in order to get your business. Avoid these kinds of establishments.

The most important thing about finding a good moving company is to “do your homework”. Ask your friends and family who they moved with, find a company that your friends and family liked working with. Check its credentials with local and federal authorities and get a written estimate for your move.

Organize your new house
Organize your new house









Welcome to your new house! Now it is time to give it that special individual touch, so it will feel like your home. For the past 83 years U. Santini, a full service moving company in Brooklyn, has been helping people move and feel comfortable in their new homes. Moving, in itself can be stressful, but moving in Brooklyn, Manhattan, well New York City, in general, takes it to a whole new level, as space here is VERY limited, and spacious apartments are rare luxuries.

Here are 12 tips that we have used time and again, to help you to start organizing your new place in a very efficient manner that is easy to maintain. Consider using  these tips unless you intend to get a storage unit in Manhattan or Brooklyn.

  1. Use pretty baskets, mason jars and boxes to contain bathroom clutter and toiletries. Lotions, razors, hair spray, etc. can easily be placed under the counter. They will be out of sight but easy to reach and use.
  2. Keep bath items in the tub/shower area by hanging an organizer over the shower head or in the corner of the tub. These are inexpensive and easy to use.
  3. Use decorative baskets or magazine racks for reading materials. These also are handy to store television remotes, tissues and other items out of sight.
  4. Use pants hangers to store boots. Simply clip the top of the boots and hang in the closet where they are accessible but out of the way.
  5. Install hooks or use over the doors hooks to keep coats, towels, robes and the like organized.
  6. Consider hanging a shoe organizer over the back of a door and fill it with cosmetics.
  7. Clothing should be sorted by season and items not being used can be sealed in vacuum bags. They will take up less room and will be safe from mildew and moths. This works well for extra comforters, quilts and blankets also.
  8. Clear bins, totes and tubs are great for organizing a room, an entire home or a garage. They allow the contents to be easily identified and stack to conserve space.
  9. Install pegboard in the kitchen, kid’s rooms or just about anywhere. Utilize these to hang items so they are off the floor or counters and easily retrieved.
  10. Use chalkboard paint to create a bulletin board on a door or wall. Write family activities, daily chores, schedules and other information on it so everyone can see and know what is happening each day.
  11. Install a tension rod under the kitchen sink and in cabinets. There are no tools required and they are easily removed. Use these to hang cleaning products, set spices on them or to stack plates.
  12. Install a magnetic rack in the kitchen to hold knives and other sharp utensils. They will be out of the way and children cannot reach them. Use the same idea in the garage.

The Basics of the Long Distance Move

Whether you are moving across the state or across the country, a long-distance move can be more complicated than moving to a new home in the same city. While it is possible to make last minute arrangements with Brooklyn moving companies, it is a bit more difficult to arrange a last minute move across state lines. It is important that you do your research and make decisions about moving and packing companies well in advance.

When you move within the city you have the luxury of making multiple trips between homes, which adds a bit more flexibility into your schedule. When you are moving further you want to make sure you rent a large enough truck to fit all of your belongings, and that you are completely packed and ready to go when moving day comes.

Packing is a Family affair…









This includes getting rid of any extra belongings that will not be making the move with you. After deciding what you will take along, you should book a one-way moving truck from a reputable Brooklyn moving company.

Try to book at least a month in advance, and try to schedule your move during an off-peak time, like the middle of the month. Make sure you know what services are included in your moving quote to avoid any unpleasant surprises the day of the move, and if possible, ask for a walk-through price quote. This will help to reduce the expense of moving and make sure that you get to your destination on time.

When moving a long distance you have to be sure that your items are securely packed. Although items should be packed well no matter the distance they are traveling, it is especially important to pack and load fragile items in a way that will handle bumps well and avoid shifting when being shipped long distances. If you are packing on your own be sure to read a packing guide, get as much advice as you can from experts, and buy proper packing materials. Alternatively, you may want to invest in packing services from professionals. This can save you time and reduce your stress.

A long distance move requires balancing multiple schedules in multiple cities. It can be a complex operation, and you will have a lot to think about besides the logistics of moving your stuff. Whether you complete your move on your own or look into a long distance moving company to take on the gritty details of your move, the best thing you can do is plan early, and plan in detail.
