Moving in Manhattan

Manhattan is the centerpoint of New York City, the hub where all the excitement happens. At times, that makes it feel like the centerpoint of the world, if not the universe. Manhattan has been Oz Moving’s bread and butter for more than 20 years. We’ve been on every street, from Crosby St to Amsterdam Ave, Wall St to Riverside Dr, enough times to know our way around without Waze or Google Maps. We’re friends with all of the building managers of NY’s largest residential buildings. After offering moving services in Manhattan for two decades, Oz understands the ins-and-outs of NYC’s busiest borough and is prepared for any kind of move on “the island” you may undertake.

Who is Oz Moving?

Oz Moving & Storage’s first chapter began in 1993, when our founder Avi Oz left a job in the moving industry to start his own company. Now in our 24th year of service, Oz Moving & Storage is one of the largest moving companies in Manhattan and New York City.

Since its humble beginnings in 1993, Oz Moving & Storage has grown from a single truck and a small group of employees to become the very best Manhattan moving company. Oz currently directs our crew of over 200 employees with 50 moving trucks out of our Manhattan offices, ensuring with preemptive research and quality control that each of our moves in Manhattan is a success.

Having OZ Moving and Storage move us was a great experience. They were on time, quick, and careful with our belongings. The best thing I can say is that when I move again they will be who I call.

Moving Into a Studio Apartment

Manhattan living means space is at a premium. Sometimes, movers to Manhattan will have to sacrifice space to get their preferred location. Moving into a small studio isn’t a death sentence, though. Here’s a few ways to thrive in a smaller space:

  • THINK VERTICAL - Use all 3 dimensions for storage! 
  • GET VERSATILE - Furniture with built in storage really comes in handy.
  • DOWNSIZE - Who needs all that stuff anyway?
