Make sure that you have moving permission from the building if you need it. Many New York buildings have rules about moving times, and which doors can be used. If there is an elevator on either end, and it needs to be reserved through your building management for moves, remember to reserve it.
Protect your valuables. Fragile items (dishes, pictures and glass) should be protected. Wrap glass pictures in cardboard and/or bubble-wrap.
Be Packed. Don’t pack a giant box full of books. Use small boxes or only put some books in the box, and fill the rest with lighter items.
If you need to use garbage bags, use contractor bags (find them in any hardware store)
Dismantle your bed and futon frames ahead of time.
Empty all drawers.
Don't wait until the last minute!

Stride helped move me in to my current apartment in Brooklyn a few years back. Olson is hands down the best. I don't even know how he managed to get our couch into a basement around an impossible corner of rough cement walls without a single mark, but they did and made it look pretty effortless. Everything was well taken care of and they listened to us and planned out the move perfectly. Moving is an art and these dudes are masters. They're also really level headed and have worked as movers for years in the city moving all types of folks from well off financial people with expensive everythings to your run of the mill musicians with day jobs like myself before venturing on to start his own company. If you're lucky enough to be able to book these folks for your date, then take them before anyone else. Highly highly recommended!

Don't look any further! I've worked with Stride on several different occasions and all times were EXCELLENT. They are my go-to movers and heavy lifters! I manage a high end furniture showroom in Soho and brought Stride in as our regular movers. They understood the delicacy of handling our very expensive items but always finished the job ahead of schedule! I also used them on several residential projects where they moved, assembled, and installed a variety of pieces for myself or my clients. James has an eye for space and when someone else says you need two trucks or two trips to get the job done, James makes it happen in one! He doesn't do this by cutting corners. He does this by using his brain and years of experience!!!

Amazing. Professional, experienced, lovely. A thorough, long-distance job from NYC to DC with a stop at my New York storage unit. Have worked with pricey, reputable companies in the city and found Stride Movers to be just as wonderful and a fraction of the price. Olson, the owner, clearly knows what he's doing and is wonderful from start to finish. My furniture was beautifully wrapped and protected and he went above and beyond to make sure everything was organized, safe, and stress-free for the client. I highly recommend Stride Movers. I almost felt guilty for how easy they made what is usually such a stressful endeavor. They treated me and my things with a care and respect that exceeded expectations. Excellent value, excellent service. Whether you're working with a budget or simply looking for NYC's best movers, this is who you should call.
