From the time Steve the owner showed up to look to see what had to be moved, to the end of the move when Steve stopped by to make sure everything was going well, I was very impressed with this company. I had a lot of stuff and the estimate was just under the time it took. The team couldn’t have made the move any faster and I was ok with the little extra time. One flimsy thing that shouldn’t have been moved didn’t make it and there was total communication from the team, I was hopeful but didn’t expect it to make it. Call it a lesson learned.
Danielle in the office, was great when I needed to change some things, the team that showed up was nice, courteous, professional and respectful & the move went very well. I would recommend the BCM Team, and when the next move happens, I hope the same team is still in place, I would use again & recommend them now.
***Used Blue Collar a SECOND TIME*** AND THEY ARE AMAZING! This company should be on the cover of Forbes, as the best moving company on the planet. Rob, and his awesome crew loaded my truck flawlessly, at a reasonable price. They are very professional, and know how to do their jobs better than any other company! Danielle is also fantastic with keeping you up to speed. My brain is going to explode trying to come up with all the great things to say about this company!!! 5 STARS!
So impressed with the crew we had today. Fast, professional and moved us out and into the new house in under 4 hours. So happy to have found them and will recommend to our friends!
My family used Blue Collar Moving for a long distance move from Huntington on Long Island to Hillsdale in Upstate NY. The process was seamless from the estimate, to the packing a large portion of our house, to the delivery to a storage unit the following day. All workers were very professional and showed great attention to detail skillfully packing, loading the truck, and then loading our belongings into a storage unit in a manner which utilized every square inch.
We could not have been happier with our experience with Blue Collar Moving and have already recommended them to friends and family. Choosing any other moving company would be a mistake!
I highly recommend this professional, well-managed moving company!! The entire process was seamless from getting the quote to the move. The entire staff is friendly, courteous, professional, punctual and hard-working and the rates reasonable. I’ve moved several times in my life and this company is top notch!! I wouldn’t use anyone else!!!
We live in Montauk and used BCM to move in August from one house to another in the same area and could not have been happier with the whole experience!! They provided us with a timely, reasonable quote, contacted us to confirm the move the day before, followed up with a call the morning of move to inform us that they were on the way but due to traffic they could be a few minutes late (they were not but we certainly appreciated the call!!). The gentlemen who arrived were professional, careful, courteous, & got the job done ahead of schedule (so we paid less than quote!!!) Thanks Christopher, Ramon & TJ!!! As if this was not enough we got a follow up call from the owner to inquire if we were satisfied and a hand written note via mail to thank us! We could not have had a better experience! Thanks BCM!!
AHHH-MAY-ZING!!!!…As a serial mover, I have used many companies but none like this one. Steve and the crew that helped me move were top notch. I actually came on the page to contact them because I am moving yet again and wouldn’t think of calling anyone else. Now that I know what the best looks like, why would I? Oh and have to add not only did they make moving easy, they made it fun, these guys had jokes, movie reviews and were such a joy to hang out with. Thanks so much…
Rob and his excellent team completed our move from Suffolk to Nassau. We found them on Angie’s List…their great reviews were spot on. They were prompt, proficient, polite and professional. The move went exactly how Rob projected it would including the cost (which was competitive). They went out of their way to make sure we were 100% satisfied. We would not hesitate using Blue Collar again.
This is a local business, young owners, excellent customer service/focus. Everything happened as promised, hard working and likable crew, not a single issue with the move. Steve and team do A+ work, absolutely recommend this business.
I have moved all over the country using both national and local movers. This company is by far the best and most professional I have seen. They arrived a bit early and did not waste a minute from start to finish. My furniture has never been as cared for and well protected. What sold me in deciding on a mover is that Rob (one of the owners) stayed to oversee the entire move! You could not want more friendly, courteous, efficient and professional movers than Rob and his men. I highly recommend them and would only use this company if I had to move again.
Took me a little while to have time to write this because my life has been so crazy, but Blue Collar gave me peace of mind during this stressful time. On march 18th, they moved me form Selden to Farmingville. They made it so easy for me, I recently had major surgery and was not able to pack all my belongings. They packed what I couldn’t. All my furniture was disassembled, moved, and reassembled. There were absolutely no damages, no scratches.. completely perfect. They began at 8 am and were done by 12:30 pm. I sat on my couch reading and playing on my phone. It was very strange as I always have to be doing something, but due to my surgery I knew I had to take it easy. The price was amazing as well. I highly recommend them and am so grateful for their assistance and muscles.. Thanks guys!!!
All I can say is “Amazing!” Rob and his crew were prompt, courteous, careful, hard working and very pleasant. They handled both sides of our move. They expertly wrapped and packed up our furniture and just as carefully unloaded all items in our new home. It was a 10 hour day but they never complained or stopped working. The entire crew remained professional and courteous the entire time. I give my highest recommendation. Thanks for making such a chaotic day extremely manageable.
Great experience! Everyone was friendly, responsive and punctual. The movers were extremely professional and made an extra effort to pack the moving truck within the allotted time frame.
I would definitely recommend this company and give them a “5” Star rating!
Thanks for everything!!
This is one of the very few times I’m actually excited to write a review! All I can say is, “WOW!” Blue Collar Movers completely surpassed my expectations. They were a dream come true during a very difficult time for me, where I really did not want to move from my apartment into my new one. They made moving day for me less stressful, given that I had not one worry about my belongings in their hands. Steve, one of the owners of the company came over to give me an estimate first. He wanted to make sure he gave me an honest estimate with as much information as he could get, which is why he came over to look over everything, instead of giving me a quote over the phone. He didn’t underestimate the quote just so he can get the job and then end up charging more at the end, like other moving companies do. Steve was very friendly and seemed trustworthy from the very start. On moving day, he had three guys come; JJ, TJ, and Eli. They were all amazing! Not only did they come early but they did everything so swiftly while taking special care of my furniture. Steve was there as well, pitching in a little and making sure all was well. They worked really hard. I was even asked which items I wanted wrapped up and which ones I thought were fine to go on the truck without being wrapped, saving time, which would end up saving me money. All of the guys were super friendly and JJ went above and beyond, which I was so grateful for. There was a drawer in my nightstand that I had not been able to open in years! It was so stuck, nobody was able to get it open. I told JJ about it and within minutes, he was able to figure it out and open it. (And it wasn’t just a simple fix!) Then, when we got to my new apt, unfortunately my boxspring didn’t fit down the stairs, into my apt in the basement. (A boxspring doesn’t fold like a mattress can, which is why my mattress fit but not the boxspring.) Since I had no boxspring, JJ asked my permission first and then took wood slats from a trundle bed frame I wasn’t using, to screw into my bedframe, so I could sleep on my mattress on a sturdy frame, instead of on the floor. He is very handy and likes to be helpful. The guys finished up in under the estimated time, so it even cost less! All of my furniture and mirrors arrived in perfect condition. These guys are real professionals; they really know what they’re doing and since Blue Collar is a smaller company with only several men, when you read reviews of their work, you can be assured that you’ll have the same well rated guys coming to your home. You don’t get that peace of mind with large companies. These guys are just so incredible, I would’ve tipped them $100 each if I was able to afford it! As long as I stay on Long Island, I will never choose any other moving company. Blue Collar Moving is the one! Thanks so much guys!
Fantastic, Wonderful, Amazing!! This company is the epitome of what a moving company should be. I am SO grateful to Steve, Rob and the 3 terrific gentleman that made this extremely difficult time for my family, much easier and stress-free! They went above and beyond what you expect from a moving company. The prompt next day response I received from Steve after the initial e-mail inquiring if they had this date available, was only the beginning of this great experience! He was there that afternoon to provide an estimate and the communication about the move was ongoing to make sure everything was in order. I was confident that it would go smoothly. And so it did and more! The 3 gentleman- and I say that because that is exactly what they were: polite, kind, respectful , hard-working gentleman- did an amazing job packing the truck with the many boxes and wrapping every piece of furniture and more with the padding they provided. They were so careful with everything. When we got to the storage unit and I realized that it might be a little too small for all the things on the truck, I started to panic. But Rob, who oversaw everything, assured me that they would make it work and be able to fit all of it. Well, not only did that happen and with perfection, but we even had some room left over for some items we needed to store that weren’t on the truck. I cannot say enough wonderful things about Blue Collar Moving. I consider myself and my family very fortunate to have found this extraordinary moving company. THANK YOU SO MUCH!!!
Extremely happy with the experience with Rob and Blue Collar Moving! We hired a crew of 3 people from Blue Collar Moving to load a 28 ft. trailer we had rented to take the first load of our belongings on a move from Long Island to Massachusetts. We did much of the prep work for the move before they arrived, boxing and wrapping many of the furniture pieces. Rob and his crew arrived right on time, and worked well in wrapping remaining furniture pieces we had had not gotten to. They were very professional and careful with our belongings, and packed the trailer well, leaving very little extra space (always a good thing!). We appreciate the work they did, and are having them return in a couple of weeks to load another trailer for the second stage of our move. Would highly recommend Rob and Blue Collar Moving. Rob was great in returning my phone calls when I had questions, his quote was right on (no surprises), they arrived right on time, and his crew was very friendly and professional. They did great work!
These guys are absolutely fantastic. Rob was extremely accommodating, especially considering that we had a very short time frame and then had a blizzard interrupt our plans afterwards. All this taken into account, Rob was always willing to work with our changing schedule, even going so far as to give me his cell phone number to keep him up-to-date. Once we got to the actual move, all 3 of the movers were very professional, very fast, and very polite and friendly. And on top of all this, the price that was quoted was the best we found and they even finished under their estimated time! I will definitely use these guys again, without question, and will be my first recommendation to anyone I know looking for movers. You will not go wrong with Blue Collar Movers!
I moved from my house of 52 years in Hauppauge to an apartment in Queens on January 16. Dealing with Rob one of the owners and the crew, JJ, Eli and Ricky made this move super smooth. These guys wrapped everything and really made sure it all arrived undamaged. All this and they finished under the original estimate which was more than fair to begin with. I would highly recommend Blue Collar Movers and will definitely use them again for my one more move.
Wow! My second experience with BCM and I could not be more pleased! They were quick and efficient and the moving men worked extremely hard! They exceeded my expectations for a second time and I will not hesitate to hire them again or suggest them to friends in the future!
Great job and thanks for the T-Shirt!
Everything went great. The owners showed up to see how things were going and even gave a hand gratis!
A couple of hard working young guy’s making a name for themselves in the moving business!
I definitely recommend these guys and would use them again!
I felt I needed to take the opportunity to praise Blue Collar for the outstanding and professional job they did. I hired them to move ALL of my contents of a 3 bedroom home into a HUGE storage unit. They worked at a very reasonable pace while being diligent with all of my belongings. I have very expensive furniture which they handled with excellent care. They were courteous and friendly-They arrived early the morning of the move! They exceeded all of my expectations which needless to say was a major relief. Thank you thank you thank you to Steve and Rob and their amazing employees! I will certainly be using you again and will recommend you to everyone I know! 🙂
Excellent moving company. We really loved that the owner took time to come out in person to assess our home items to provide an accurate estimate. They even provided us with a high end estimate in case the job ended up taking longer than expected on moving day. Both owners were present the entire time of our move. The staff of 4 movers who accompanied the owners were all friendly, professional and worked their butts off from start to finish. They also offered some suggestions for alternative options when our queen bed box spring was unable to fit in our new home (we used their suggestion).
Even if other companies provide an initial lower quote, Blue Collar Moving will ultimately end up coming in under or as comparable to the other guys, but with a much better attention to detail and work ethic.
After hearing horror stories from all over the Internet and friends who’d used movers in the past of missing drivers and ignored estimates, I was very nervous to hire someone to move a few things from my in-laws home to our new home a few towns away on Long Island. We’d moved most of our things ourselves, we were down to two large and heavy antique dressers and our king-sized mattress. After nearly killing ourselves getting them into the house, we swore that we’d never move them alone again.
I called a few movers off Yelp, most were based out of Manhattan and would charge extra to come to the suburbs. I called three movers on Long Island, one gave a lower estimate, and one gave higher. When I called Blue Collar, only they came out to the house; something I thought was a bad omen for such a small move. He looked over everything, and gave us a number that was much closer to the lower number than the higher, plus he moved us that Saturday, on Fourth of July for the same price!
The movers came right on time (ten minutes early!) and spent most of the first hour just taping up the furniture, including the mattress. Moving the heavy furniture out, which we had struggled over by ourselves, took minutes, and without any damages. Even though we had said that we would move most of the other things by ourselves, we asked them to take two or three extra pieces which wouldn’t fit into our cars, which they gladly accommodated.
We didn’t even watch them unpack our things, they were so quick. And, because they beat the already low estimate by a half hour, they saved us another fifty bucks! Can’t say enough great things about these guys, hopefully everything goes as smoothly with our new home!
Steve and his crew were great! They showed up right on time (even a little early) and had everything packed up ready to be put in the truck within an hour. They helped bring up an extra fridge and exercise equipment from the basement. Everything was done quickly and professionally, without damaging anything. We would recommend them to anyone and would use them again in the future.
This Company was great. Steve, the owner and the two movers – Ricardo and JJ were prompt, professional and did more than I expected. Even hung a mirror for me. They were all extremely pleasant and I will be using them again.
They moved bedroom furniture that was close to 100 years old to another apartment. They even fixed the legs of one of the pieces that was loose without me even asking. Not a scratch to the furniture and went very smoothly
Def A+ movers
Blue Collar Movers were amazing to work with! You hear so many nightmares about moving companies, but we had nothing but a great experience. Steve was extremely professional and gave us a great competitive price to move from one home to another. His crew showed up on time and they took great care with all of our furniture and things. Nothing was broken or damaged and they made our whole moving process stress-free. Thanks Blue Collar!
Blue Collar moved the contents of my daughter’s 3 bedroom apartment in West Babylon to my home in Dix Hills. They shrink wrapped all the furniture and mattresses, and relocated her belongings into parts of my house, garage and attic.
Blue Collar arrived promptly and worked without wasting any time. They handled her belongings with care, everything arrived in
perfect condition. The job came in under time and for less money than the estimate. The owners were on the job and everyone in the company was polite and eager to please. I will surely use them again and recommend them to my friends and neighbors!!
The grand summary is that this company provides a friendly and fantastic service. I contacted them and Rob immediately got back to me and made himself available to see the place and provide an estimate. From the first contact, it was already an immediate like. He was fast, punctual, friendly, polite and cared about the apartment floors.
He provided an estimate, we scheduled a date … I had of course plenty of questions (what to do with this, can I leave cloth in drawers, etc …) and Rob answered immediately via text. We were cracking jokes from time to time and this made me feel very comfortable. Punctuality is a plus for me (actually, a must) and there were no surprises or wait time here – a little text before coming was confirming the arrival as a bonus.Rob appeared as expected and right on time and came to deliver my set of free boxes.
On the scheduled date, we of course had one of the many snow storm of winter 2014-2015. We texted back and forth with Rob and moved the schedule by one hour to make sure the roads are cleaned by then (we rescheduled for 10 AM instead of 9h30). Him and his team came on time then, the whole crew started to get to work immediately and the packing and moving of boxes took about 2 hours. They covered the floor with some rubber strip, wrapped my furnitures in blankets, dismounted bed and table in no time and even handled my Ikea desk (and reconstructed it all in the same state). At the destination, they also put the protective floor covers (I had the wood floor remade) and they had to climb stairs to move things in but handled this really well. The unpacking about 3 and we were done by 3 PM. All through, the crew was friendly like you would not believe. I am relatively inquisitive and, as they worked, we exchanged stories and jokes. The whole experience (I expected would be stressful) was a breath and the time passed by barely noticeable. By the end of the moving, I knew something of nearly each of the guys life and it felt like friends were helping me move rather than an obscure bunch of people. It was a good feeling – the move took less time than expected. Rob and crew were simply awesome.
As I did not expect a moving could be made to look that easy and comfortable, I would highly recommend those guys. You simply cannot go wrong so, don’t settle for anything else.
When I contacted Blue Collar, Rob quickly made arrangements to come to our house to perform a walk-through and provide a price quote. He was patient with all our questions and provided suggestions to make the move go smoothly.
The closing date ended up being a couple weeks later than originally planned, but they will still willing to work with us. Snow was forecasted for the day we were scheduled to move, so Rob was quick to contact me and offered to change the move to the day until the day after the snow, which turned out to be much better for everyone.
The day of the move, Rob and his team showed up on time, they were all in uniform, friendly and professional. They put protective covering on my floor, wrapped all my furniture with blankets, dismantled my china cabinet and reassembled it at the new house. They lent me clothing rack boxes and were willing to do as little or as much as you wanted them to.
They completed the job in less time than originally estimated, which cost us less than quoted. I would definitely recommend them for all moving services and would use them again if needed in the future.
I was very happy with the services provided by Blue Collar moving company. They showed up before the appointment at the storage facility and they began on time. They were fast, efficient and kept me in the loop on any potential problems. All of the men were friendly and professional. When they moved my belongings to my new apartment they stacked everything neatly and one of the workers, JJ put my bed together for me and even showed me what to do if I had any future problems with the frame. They were prepared and were able to complete the job under the estimate that I was given. I would definitely recommend them for moving services and I will use them again if I need to move sometime in the future. I also found their prices to be very reasonable for the excellent service that I was given. They made my move very pleasant despite some problems that I had with the storage facility that had my belongings.
They arrived on time and completed the job in less time than quoted, which resulted in a savings for us, but at the same time they didn’t rush. They carefully and properly wrapped and prepped everything for the move. Within an hour and a half, our apartment was packed up and on the truck. Upon arrival to our new home, they carefully unpacked the truck and moved all the boxes and furniture to where we wanted them to go and patiently worked with us while we were making final decisions. Everything went smoothly and everything was in the same shape they left our apartment in. The team and owner were very professional and helpful throughout the entire process. I would highly recommend them to anyone considering moving services.
I found Blue Collar LLC on Angie’s list as I was shopping for a moving company. The company was quick to reply and gave a quote on the spot to move a few pieces of furniture from Nassau to Suffolk County, New York.
The service was excellent. Blue Collar arrived exactly on time. The movers arrived in uniforms with company logo. The furniture was carefully wrapped in protective blankets. They even took the time to dismantle one piece for easy transportation and put it back together. One of the pieces was an expensive buffet with a few pieces of glass. All was handled with care.
Overall, I was very pleased with the service and the price was exactly as quoted. I would certainly recommend Blue Collar, LLC and hire them in the future if I need a moving company.
From the very first contact by phone Blue Collar LLC was extremely professional, courteous and very helpful. They arrived at our house in uniform, and exactly on time. They immediately asked if our pets were secured, and that impressed us because we are always very concerned that our indoor cats will get out. They treated our furniture with outstanding concern, wrapping each and every piece very carefully. They worked hard not to scratch any of our walls and even removed pictures from the walls that could have been damaged, which we appreciated. All of this attention to detail showed how much respect they had for our house. We’re very happy to recommend them and we’ll refer them to our family and friends for all their moving needs!! What else can we say but they are EXCEPTIONAL movers!!
We used Blue Collar Moving a few weeks ago on a move to Islip Terrace in Long Island and from start, (initial phone call to Rob) to finish, (the unload) it was all smooth as silk. Polite, courteous and careful, and early on a Sunday morning these two guys carried heavy boxes and furniture up the second floor steps and arranged everything as requested. Got done with a 26′ truck in about 2 hours and they didn’t miss a beat.
They showed up on time, the price was right and the move was over in no time. I couldn’t ask for more. Thank You!!
