How can I get a Certificate of Insurance from Expo Movers?

Ask your super or building manager of BOTH locations if a Certificate of Insurance is required. This certificate assures the building manager that Expo Movers is insured in case of damage to the building and/or personnel, and protects the building against liability for damage.

If one or both buildings require a Certificate of Insurance, please forward the information to our Customer Service Department at:

Phone: 212-321-3976
E-mail: info@expomovers.com

Please allow 24-48 hours of processing time and include at a minimum the following requirements: Name, Phone Number, Email Address, and detailed information about your request.

How soon should I call the NYC moving company professionals at Expo Movers?

The earlier you call, the better. The more lead time you can give, the more likely we will be able to meet your preferred pick-up and delivery schedule and be ready to address all your moving needs.

Can I get a free on-site estimate?

Yes. Upon request, we will send one of our relocation consultants to your home. Expo Movers’ relocation consultants are trained to assist you with all your moving & storage questions. Our relocation consultant will provide you with a written binding estimate that specifies all costs and services included.

What is a binding estimate?

A binding estimate guarantees, in writing, the cost of the move based on the services requested or deemed necessary at the time of the estimate. If additional services are requested or required at origin or destination (such as adding items, additional packing, or shuttle service to a location to which a full-size van cannot access), additional costs will apply for these specific services.

What is the difference between hourly, weight, and volume estimates?

Local moves are normally conducted and charged on an hourly basis. Long-distance and international moves are normally performed by weight or volume. Ask our relocation consultant which way your move will be performed.

What should I pack by myself?

The term “packing” refers to small objects and loose items. It does not refer to furniture. The level of packing you should do is entirely dependent upon the amount of time, money, and energy that you may want to spend.

You can

  • leave all the packing to us,
  • pack partially, or
  • pack everything yourself.

Most customers prefer the movers to pack all artwork, lamps, electronics, breakables, and delicate objects. When you receive an estimate from our relocation consultant, do not forget to describe all the items that need particular care.

How will the movers protect my furniture?

Our company provides full protection service for all furniture. All furniture will be fully wrapped with heavy duty moving pads. Glass, marble, and delicate surfaces will be put into cardboard or wood crates by the movers. When you receive an estimate from our relocation consultant, do not forget to describe all the furniture that needs special care.

Should I dismantle and reassemble my furniture?

You can if you wish to save some time, but disassembling your furniture is not necessary. In fact, most clients leave all dismantling and reassembling work for the movers. The movers will reassemble all the furniture that was dismantled.

Do my appliances need special attention?

Most refrigerators, washers, dryers, and other electrical or mechanical appliances require special servicing to ensure safe transportation. Any moving parts, such as motors on major appliances, washer drums, or mechanical arms, should be securely fastened for shipment. Gas appliances need to be serviced and disconnected prior to your move. Expo Movers will perform these services using either our own qualified personnel or an authorized service company. Ask our relocation consultant about servicing your appliances for moving.

My new location is not ready yet. What should I do?

If your new home is not ready, you have two options from which to choose. One is to extend your stay at your old location. The second is to store your goods until the new location is ready. Whether you require overnight, short-term, or long-term storage, Expo Movers provides perfect storage solutions for your needs. Check with our relocation consultant which storage service best suits your situation.

What type of payment do you accept?

We gladly accept payments in certified check, money order, cashier’s check, or cash. For long distance moves, 50% of the payment is required upon pick up and the remaining balance is due upon delivery.

Are my goods protected against loss or damage while in transit?

Yes, but you will need to determine the type and level of protection. There are two primary options: Release Value Liability (weight based) or Full Value Liability. Our relocation consultant will explain to you all the protection options and rates. Third Party insurance is also an option. If you have homeowner or renter’s insurance, inquire with your insurance agent about “in-transit” coverage.

What happens if I must reschedule my move?

Expo Movers is aware of the complexity of moving and choosing a moving date. Therefore, we are always ready to accommodate any change to your moving schedule. Please contact our relocation representative, as soon as you know about the required change in moving arrangements.

I am fairly sure that every one of us wakes up on moving day wishing we could simply leave and return to find everything had magically been packed, moved, and sub sequentially unpacked for us. I am here to tell you that Saturday, I did just that. Ivan and his team are truly a dream. Planning the move, date changes, COIs and other building snafus snuck in and they were more than accommodating. Day of, I let the movers in to my old apartment around 10:00 AM, and returned to my new apartment at 3:00 PM to find a near clone of the former. The tchotchkes on my upright piano were arranged the same, the cabinets of dishes in the same order, and the TV rehung in the proper place. Few things are worse than moving, and after my experience with Expo Movers I can say that few things are better than a thorough, trustworthy moving company. I cannot say enough good things about them. I contacted them after a raving recommendation from a colleague, who had also learned of them through a referral. Jump on the hype train – you will be glad you did, and surely be sad if you didn’t come moving day.

moving reviews

Expo movers did an amazing job packing and moving my things this week! The lead mover, Adrian, started by telling me to relax and not worry because they would take care of everything for me, and they did! Not only did they do a great job moving everything, Adrian took extra time to fix a cracked piece of wood holding the mirror to my dresser, which is something people working for a large moving company would probably never do. I highly recommend Expo Movers!


Highly recommend!!!! Ivan was in my area and came by to check out my items so I didn’t have to worry about listing everything over the phone! On the day of my move the movers came on time, were extremely careful with my belongings, friendly, and most importantly so quick/accommodating to my needs!! I called a lot of places and these guys were by far the best price!! Adrian even called after my move to make sure everything went as I expected! I’m really glad I chose them! Thanks again guys : )
