long distance movers that care about your experience.

Moving in or out of the Big Apple? We have you covered! Boston, Washington DC, Philadelphia or anywhere in between – we love moving our customer’s personal possessions up and down the I-95. Our professional drivers and well maintained trucks are made to go the distance for you! Work with our experienced moving consultants to ensure that your quote is 100% correct before you lock in your move. We offer several long distance moving solutions to fit your needs, and most importantly – your budget.

Long distance moves differ from local moves a whole lot. Logistics take more time to plan, items need to be protected much better, delivery windows are longer (depending on the type of service you opt in for) and finally the price for a long distance move is always much higher than if you were to move locally. 

Our moving consultants will help you optimize your move to the best of our abilities. We do this for a living, so we know what to look out for and advise you when you decide to make your big move.

As a NYC based moving company, we offer same day deliveries for majority of the East Coast cities. We’ll get you to Philadelphia, Boston, Washington DC, Buffalo or Baltimore by the dinner time. Some of the further locations, such as Charlotte, Atlanta, Pittsburgh and Cleveland will require us to plan an overnight move. For those farthest destinations (we’re talking Los Angeles, Miami, Denver, Chicago and others) we will provide you with an estimated multi day delivery window and keep you posted on the each step of your delivery process. We are proud to offer USA wide long distance deliveries by partnering with some of the most reliable shipping companies to get your items cross country as fast and safely as possible.

Packing service

Moving last minute, or just have no time to pack? We have you covered! Our trained professional movers will supply the boxes and other packing materials, pack up your belongings & proceed to move you to your new place.

Storage solutions

Take advantage of our flexible NYC storage solutions. Need storage in transit, or maybe for a few months? With no long term contracts, Otter Moving & Storage is the perfect solution for you!

Our long distance movers cover the tri-state area, East Coast and continental USA.

FAQ

We tried to put ourselves in your shoes and answer all of your questions in this section. Follow the link below to see the full list of frequently asked questions (and answers), or contact us using the buttons below.

Yes. Otter Moving & Storage is fully insured and licensed with the US DOT and NYC DOT.

Yes, we provide the certificate of insurance (COI) free of charge for as many locations as needed.

Yes. Our movers will protect all non box-able items for you. This includes your TV, mirrors, dressers, mattress, lamps, etc. We use thick moving blankets, plastic wrap and cardboard to pad the items. The protection of items is included in all quotes at no additional cost.

Yes, we disassemble and reassemble all of your basic furniture at no additional cost. This includes basic beds (non storage), sofas, desk and tables with up to 8 screws or handling time shorter than 20 minutes. For more complex furniture there might be a handling fee applied, so make sure to inform your moving consultant about it upfront.

Our fixed rates are based on the list of items, logistics of the move and the date of the move. Once you provide this information to your moving consultant they will present you with an all inclusive transparent rate that will not be subject to change unless the details of your move change (eg. adding items, changing date, etc).

 

The beauty of the fixed rate is knowing your total cost upfront and avoiding any surprises on the day of the move.

Our fixed rates do not include the gratuity, moving of not listed items & supply and packing of boxes (this can be added as additional service). 

If you have more questions about the quote, make sure to ask your dedicated moving consultant.

We recommend scheduling your move approximately 1-2 weeks in advance for non busy dates. If you are looking to move during the peak dates (end & beginning of the month) we suggest reaching out 3-4 weeks in advance in order to secure the most affordable rate. 

Of course, most of the time we’ll be able to accommodate next day moves, and even same day moves if the schedule allows us.

Yes – we work seven days a week, as well as on all national holidays. We have you covered 365 days a year.

As in many service industries, the recommended gratuity for a job well done is 15-20% of the move price (amount is then equally split between all movers). Of course, the customer is always encouraged to tip their movers any amount that they find appropriate based on crews’ overall performance.

We do not expect our customers to secure the parking spot for our trucks, however if you are able to secure one that would be greatly appreciated as it will help the move go faster and smoother.

About us

We spent the last 10 years doing what we do best – moving New Yorkers. We got to work with some amazing people, we got to know thousands of customers, and we believe we learned what it takes to make a moving day a positive experience. It’s simple – being kind to each other takes the nerves out of the moving day and makes everything just a tad easier.

Armed with kindness we set out to open our moving business. We believe that every customer deserves a transparent moving quote & kind, professional movers – so we made our process just that. By combining our values with care for people we employ, we created a culture based around making the customer satisfaction our #1 priority. 

Finally – we decided to be more than a regular moving company. Our mission is to make moving more sustainable by minimizing waste, volunteering in the community and donating 1% of our gross sales to environmental non-profits. We’ve made this official by becoming a partner in the 1% for the planet organization.
