    Very professional and likable crew, zero shady mover BS. No last minute price shenanigans. Packing and moving was seamless. It was a relatively large move with some difficulties(two crew members got stuck in my elevator for an hour) but everything was handled with competence and professionalism. Highly recommend.

    Don't have enough good things to say about this. They were timely, friendly and super quick. I ended up having quite a bit more to move than I thought I would and they were able to accommodate for only $50 more than my original quote. I hate moving but will definitely use them again and recommend them to anyone I know who is moving.

    Marvin and his team did a terrific job facilitating our move. I had a lot of anxiety about hiring movers for the first time, inspired by horror stories and concern about items of personal significance. Marvin and team were meticulous, professional, and will treat your belongings with the utmost respect, from assessing the move, calling in back-up if needed (which we did!), packing, moving, and unpacking and reassembly. Three thumbs up!

    I could not be happier with the move Harlem Express provided for my family. They gave me a great rate and team of 4 guys that could not have been more professional and friendly. They moved fast and came prepared for anything. We even had to make multiple trips back and forth in rush hour traffic, to a building where parking is non-existent. They are a class act and I recommend them to anyone if you need to hire movers. Thank you Marvin!!!

    Marvin Washington via @Harlemsmover is the perfect company. I can not recommend this company more highly. They are prompt, extremely professional, knowledgable about how to transport "difficult items" and extremely friendly. I've moved many times in this city and I have never experienced better service.

    First off, all the reviews about Marvin has been accurately true! Marvin and his staff are wonderful, they are professional and move extremely fast! I am so happy and lucky we found Marvin in such a short period of time and his rates are low and good compared to ALL other companies that were not responsive either. We probably would have ended up paying over $600.00 but we paid half of that. Marvin is a honest and trustworthy business man. Just dont forget us when you become the king of logistics. THANK YOU AGAIN so much for your hard work and help!!!! (I know you're reading this) =)

    I used Marvin and his company to help me move this past summer 08/2014) from Stuyvesant town to Hell's Kitchen. I was extremely impressed by their professionalism and efficiency. Marvin was very easy to work with and his entire team was very polite and courteous. I am recommending them to anyone i know moving. Yes, there are cheaper movers out there for maybe $100 less, but they can be sketchy (dirty trucks, dirty people, rude, last minute charges, etc). I didn't have any of those headaches with Marvin. He came with 6 additional people! They moved quickly and helped arrange all the furniture at my new place. If it wasn't for cross town traffic, the job would have been done in 2 hrs max. He arrived in a nice CLEAN truck and no last minute 'price adjustments' for the extra people or cross town traffic. I paid what we agreed on, and gave him another $100 for doing such a good job. I would highly recommend his services. Thanks Marvin. Hope you're still around for my next move!

    We booked Marvin the week of our move. He had an awesome rate, and it was flat not hourly (for our 1-Bedroom). The day of the move he and his team were supposed to arrive at 10:30am. Because there had been some snow they arrived an hour early to make sure they would find parking. They parked immediately and went straight to work. When they say they move fast, they mean it. Our apartment was packed up in an hour and 15 minutes. They wrapped everything very well and planned out stacking it the truck easily. When we got to the new apartment they were forced to double park (but cars were still able to get through) and walk through pretty high snow drifts. All of our stuff was moved in roughly an hour and 15 minutes later. Needless to say Marvin and his crew are awesome! They were excellent movers and on top of that all very friendly and fun guys. Can't say enough good things.

    Ive always moved myself, and this time i was smart enough to hire a company, and i could not have been happier. They arrived promptly within the time window. They wrapped everything, And well, did not skimp on time or shrink wrap, carefully loaded things, were friendly and courteous. Marvin, and his team of 3-4 young men including the driver, were a joy. They got my huge couch through a small doorway, and up two flights of stairs because it did not fit in the elevator. I have already recommended them to several friends. This was certainly a great decision.

Mr. Washington was on time, he and his assistants we extremely polite, and worked quickly. He was in constant contact with us as the move progressed from Virginia to NY.

    Marvin and his team truly exceeded all of the positive reviews I read before booking with them. They showed up early and waited patiently until our ABF truck arrived. I was immediately happy with my decision to use Harlem Express when they took charge the second the truck arrived. They helped measure the height of the loading dock, then directed traffic and helped guide the truck into the loading dock, which was above and beyond anything I expected. It was Marvin and 2 of his crew members, and they were all incredibly friendly and professional throughout our move. They moved our truck load of stuff gently and quickly; they placed the boxes and items throughout our place according to the notes we wrote on the boxes and were incredibly careful moving all of our belongings. Although we only used them to unload our truck, I would without a doubt contract them to help load and unload and coordinate any future moves of ours within the city. They are the real deal and well worth what we paid them. Don't hesitate to book Harlem Express, they are truly awesome!!

    February 12, 2013 Marvin's Harlem Express did an excellent job. The move was scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 9th from Port Jefferson located at Exit 62 from LIE to the City. It was in the morning after the day of the major snowstorm. Nevertheless, Marvin and his men were able to carry on with the job. They arrive strictly on time, which was simply amazing given challenging road conditions. They uploaded our stuff very quickly; got back to the city; unloaded even faster and very efficiently. I could not be happier! Harlem Express was the easiest, the nicest, and the most diligent movers I have ever dealt with. July 25, 2014 I have used HarlemExpressInc a few times for moving within the City and also from Long Island. It has always been great experience. Most recently I moved to a new 2-bedroom apartment. Marvn gave me a very good quote and was very flexible regarding the time as I had to change the move-in day twice. On the day of the move Marvn and his team showed up exactly on time with a lot of wrapping material. I have a few fragile pieces like a credenza with glass doors and a leather couch. Marvn's guys wrapped everything very thoroughly, but still worked very fast. My new apartment has a very narrow hallway and I was very concerned about potential damage to the walls by moving big pieces. Marvn's guys worked very professionally and there was absolutely no scratches or damage to the furniture. It was my easiest move. I would absolutely recommend Marvn to my family and friends.

    Marvin was on time, courteous, and flexible. He made a seemingly impossible moving situation possible. I still don't know how he was able to fit that huge couch into my door and narrow hallway, but he and his assistant worked a miracle. In spite of the fact that the couch could not fit into the elevators as planned and they had to carry it up and down several flights of stairs, he was gracious and cut me a deal for the additional cost incurred. I will definitely contact him again for any future moving needs.

They confirmed immediately, which was a sigh of relief being that I called them on such short notice (Monday, September 24th for my sister needed to move out literally three days later, Thursday, September 27th at 10AM). I would definitely consider hiring Harlem Express again as well as highly recommend them to friends. Thanks A Mil, Harlem Express INDEED lives up to it's company namesake!!! SC

    It gives me pleasure to write a review of Harlem Express, Inc. I found my communications with Marvin Washington to be clear and I found his organization to be most reliable. He understood my needs and met them expertly. This group did what they promised, showed up on time, and carried out the job professionally. Their charges were also reasonable. I would recommend them to others and I would not hesitate to use them again. After a bad experience with just negotiating with one of your other members, it was refreshing to deal with honesty and forthrightness. Rebecca Williams

    These guys were great! They showed up on time, were polite, and had me moved from door to door in under 2 hours. I will never move by myself again.

    I received very prompt and courteous service. I appreciated the price quote that was based on my small, local move. I'll definitely use Harlem Express again and refer them to others in need.

    I had a very good experience using Harlem Express. I had a last-minute move (under 24 hours) that I posted on thumbtack.com and Harlem Express contacted me right away. Marvin understood my situation and was able to accommodate my move from Manhattan to Queens for early the next morning at a very affordable flat rate. I was moving the contents of a 1 bedroom apartment without any furniture or appliances. The driver who arrived for the move was very professional and friendly. He even took care to make sure my fragile items and mirror were properly secured, even though I hadn't indicated I would have fragile items beforehand. The move was completed quickly. I was very satisfied with Harlem Express. I would recommend them to anyone and would use them again.

    Best movers ever! They worked many his to make sure we got into our new apt with no issues. They even came back after they took the truck back to make sure we got settled in. Thanks again to Marvin and his crew. Best regards, The Toulon Family

    Marvin and his helper were great! It just so happened that on my moving date from a 4th floor unit in a walkup the unit above me was also moving out. On top of that two other apartments across the street had moving trucks come in. With all that commotion Marvin did an amazing job and managed to get all my stuff loaded into a trailer (we didn't think it would fit but he did it). I would definitely recommend him!

    Marvin was great! Professional, quick and efficient. They moved my stuff out so fast I could have blinked and missed it. They were also super careful with everything. I'd hire him again in a heartbeat!

    Marvin and his friends were very helpful and they were good at organizing our stuff. They helped us for over 4 hours and they were nice people. I would definitely recommend Harlem Express if you are asking for a decent deal.

    Marvin and his team were friendly, professional, and quick. Made moving from NYC--LA a little easier. Moving is stressful and he is relaxed and gets the job done quick and efficient. They loaded a small portable unit and manged to fit all my stuff. I was ready to either ship/or trash things that didn't fit. I would recommend them or if I was in NY hire them for future jobs. Thanks!

Q&A

How did you get started doing this type of work?
Well it was a job of luck actually! I actually was approached to work a nite time commercial job and the end i was asked if wanted to come back later that ,orning and i saud yes! ~ ive had other ventures in the time but they all pay secon fiddle to the moving game! Im your problem solver! With out breaking your bank!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Small moves // a van load maybe 2 trips and loading an unloading jobs and package pick up and delivery....
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
Actually its one of thumbtacks leads brenda v , i was given the wrong measurements for a peic we were picking up and had to come up with a quick fix to solve the problem by hoisting the large peice on top of the van and strapping it securely to the top and transporting it from bk ny to qns ny without a hitch.....
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Well the best thing i can say is to make sure you have everything in a box as much as possible becouse it saves you a lot of time!
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That ive been a mover for over 15 years and have vast knowledge of all aspects of the moving industry i just like helping people move and starting anew//
