Man With A Van® Ethos: To offer honest, excellent moving services at a fair rate.

What exactly do you do?
We are a full service mover – licensed and insured.
We can deliver a couple of boxes, single items of furniture – such as that sofa you just bought on Craigslist – or move your entire apartment or office.
Our fleet is a mix of Mercedes Benz Sprinter vans and box trucks. The Sprinter vans are HUGE; the cargo area is 14′ long x 6.5′ high x 6′ wide, and our box trucks have up to a 26′ cargo area.
We come with blankets, shrink-wrap and tape to wrap and protect your belongings. We will do basic disassembly/re-assembly.
Our crews are usually 2 or 3 people, depending on the size of the job; but we’ll assign as many as you and we agree on.
Our rates are hourly and vary by date, location, job specifics and crew/vehicle size ranging from $90hr to $210hr.

Do you pack?
For a standard move you pack the boxes and we blanket and shrink-wrap the larger and fragile items.
If you want us to pack any loose items we just charge for the time, plus any boxes and materials used.
You can also buy moving supplies from us and rent plastic moving boxes at Toto Boxes.
We can do a full “pack & move”, but that usually requires packing one day and moving the next, and an onsite estimate.

Do you know what you’re doing?
As a matter a fact, yes. Our drivers are smart, strong, experienced and highly motivated.

Payment?
For most jobs, you don’t have to pay us until the job is finished – as we charge by the hour, we won’t know the total until the job is complete.
Terms are cash, check, or credit card paid on completion to your driver (they have credit card payment app on their phone).
If you won’t be be present at the drop-off location, you can pay through this website, or call us with your credit card information (we prefer that if you know in advance that you will not be at the drop off that your provide us with payment information in advance).

What about insurance?
See our insurance page for details; but we are fully licensed and insured.

What about bedbugs?
We take no chances. If you are moving an unwrapped mattress or box spring we charge $8-$12 for a mattress bag and/or wrapping. We will shrink-wrap any furniture items.

What areas do you serve?
Currently:

  • Metro New York (incl. northern New Jersey and southwest Connecticut),
  • Greater Philadelphia (incl. southern New Jersey and northern Delaware),

but with near-term plans to cover the Northeast Corridor.
