Since 2012, Dumbo Moving has booked 1376 jobs on CityMove which makes them one of the most successful moving companies on the platform. We want to celebrate our successful relationship by shining a spotlight on Dumbo and its operations. Dumbo was founded in 2007 with one truck in Brooklyn, NY, and has been disturbing the New York moving industry ever since. The green trucks and shirts have become familiar to New Yorkers as Dumbo has become one of the largest moving companies in the area. The company now owns 55 trucks and relocates its customers locally, as well as long-distance to popular destinations such as Florida, California, Illinois, Texas and others. If you want to get a quote from Dumbo using CityMove, start by posting your move, and top NYC movers including Dumbo will be securely and privately provided with your move plan and they can offer you quotes within the platform – without being able to contact you directly. There is no credit card required and no obligation to book.

Dumbo is a licensed moving company, and its federal licensing information can be found on Safersys. You can contact them at their primary phone line which is (718) 222 – 8282. Their sales office is open Monday to Friday 8AM to 8PM, and Saturday and Sunday 8AM to 6PM. If you have questions outside of those hours you can also reach them at their email address: sales@dumbomoving.com. More general information about the company can be found on their website.

Affordability without sacrificing quality

One of the mottos of the company is “affordability without sacrificing quality”. Dumbo almost exclusively offers flat-fee quotes for their services. Based on the number of items and boxes, distance, and conditions at each location, they calculate the total flat-fee for the move ahead of time. While maintaining quality, they are able to offer unbelievable savings to their customers using their business model. If you are worried about creating a list of items to move, you can contact Dumbo and schedule a video-chat estimate. The advantage of the video-chat estimate is eliminating potential misunderstandings that sometimes stem from written communication. According to their sales team, “this saves the customer a lot of hassles and provides a more accurate moving quote then if a person filled out the inventory themselves.”

Well, the cheapest time to move is during the middle of the week and from September to April. Never get a move by the hour unless you are moving with in the same building. Movers can really take advantage of that, and drag out a move. Dumbo Moving only offers a set price for moves.

Take advantage of set prices for Dumbo moves

You can get the best moving quotes during the less competitive time of the year: middle of the week (Monday to Thursday), and from September to April. This is when moving companies are generally not as busy, and Dumbo accounts for that in their flat fee system. Dumbo tries to dissuade people from going with hourly rate moves, which shows a lot of confidence in their team. According to the Dumbo PR team, “never get a move by the hour unless you are moving with in the same building.  Movers can really take advantage of that, and drag out a move. Dumbo Moving only offers a set price for moves”. This model works perfectly with the CityMove system – because we also believe that flat fee estimates are the most competitive and can save you the most money while booking your move. All quotes provided via CityMove as of 2018 are flat fee estimates.

Community support

Dumbo has a company moving team called Dumbo Moving FC where the movers and sales team are playing together in a league. Over the last 4 years Dumbo Moving FC has won almost every tournament, promoting cohesion and support within the company. Dumbo sponsors NYC FC – the New York City MLS team as well as the Brooklyn Nets – the Brooklyn NBA team. This shows the vast community outreach from the company. The company sports teams activities are elaborate, dynamic and have participants from all department of the company from the CEO, to mover to the sales reps – the company is a strong winning team in every aspect.

A company born in Brooklyn knows how to handle any move

NYC has its own unique set of challenges when it comes to moving. The Dumbo team knows the city well. They can handle difficult walk-ups, navigate tight Brooklyn blocks (and do they really get much worse than the cobble-stone streets of DUMBO – the neighborhood where the company is headquartered?), and do the heavy lifting. Pianos tend to be the most challengings household items to move. The Dumbo teams are equipped with special Piano dollies and boards, and they know how to protect it for transport to keep your instrument sounding as well as the day you got it.
