Great Experience with a good crew. Moved my stuff into storage and out. Would def use them again!

Excellent company. They arrived on time, packaged and loaded everything quickly and efficiently and then at my destination, they unloaded and placed everything where requested. I would highly recommend this company and its workers. This is my second time using them

I had a great experience with Schleppers, which my friend recommended I use. They were on time, moved efficiently, and placed everything carefully in the new apartment. They even made it fun--we were listening to music and talking as they wrapped and moved. I already recommended them to a friend, who had a great experience as well.

A very professional experience with Shleppers from beginning to end. I was recommended Shleppers by a friend. After my initial phone call, one of the representatives came in and went around the apartment making notes on their ipad. Within 15 minutes of the visit, we had an accurate and reasonable quote. Booked them on the spot. On the day of the move, the movers arrived on the scheduled time, and packed everything with great care and organization. The unloading and furniture re-assembly was quick and flawless. Would easily recommend this to friends. You know that they have done a great job many times, and are very reasonably priced at the same time.

Great experience and the move price came in right in line with his quote. After *checking around* I was much happier giving a hard working local guy my money then some franchise that only cares about how much money they ring rather than caring about the customer. The movers were professional, - which has become hard to find nowadays. Thanks guys!

Highly recommend not only was the price great but the move was flawless...not even a mark on anything. They protected my stuff as if it was there own. Highly recommend I will use again if I do not resign my lease next year.

I have had Shleppers move different members of my family 3 times in the last 2 months. Each time they have been very professional and don't a great job. I would highly recommend them.

I find it strange how much I like this moving company! As our 4th Manhattan move approached with them, we were relaxed knowing that the variety of men they have on staff are so sweet and sincere about doing a good job. Great attitudes! I love that they do not care if you forget tape or boxes, nothing seems to phase them and the bill does not go up. How weird to look forward to a move and not feel anxiety because they are all so nice! The execution of the moves was excellent too of course!

I have used Shleppers multiple times and never had anything but positive things to say about it. I have used them not only for moving services, but also storage inbetween moves and during a sublet period. They have been timely, friendly, and packed everything so carefully. Nothing was broken, lost, or damaged between the three times I have used them as movers, and the two times I have used their storage services.

On top of that, they were speedy. Moving in New York is such a headache and they made it feel so easy every time. I will definitely be using them going forward for all of my moving and storage needs, and would recommend them to anybody in need of a moving service.

I used Schleppers to move my daughter's 1 bedroom apartment in NYC to another apt 1 block away. We were under time constraints since the one apartment building's service elevator couldn't be used until after 9am, while the other building service elevator shut down at noon. My daughter and I were extremely nervous about the timing of the move. Shleppers had 3 men there at her apt at 8:45am waiting for the service elevator to be able to be used at 9am. By 9:45 her apt was cleared out, by 10:30 everything was moved in new apt. Very impressed with the professionalism of the moving crew we had, we will most certainly use Shleppers again!

Did You Know

Question In 1895 Karl Benz designed and built the first truck in history by using the internal combustion engine. Later that year some of Benz's trucks gave into modernization and went on to become the first bus by the Netphener. This would be the first motor bus company in history. Hardly a year later, in 1986, another internal combustion engine truck was built by a man named Gottlieb Daimler. As people began to catch on, other companies, such as Peugeot, Renault, and Bussing, also built their own versions. In 1899, the first truck in the United States was built by Autocar and was available with two optional horsepower motors, 5 or 8.

Question Trucks and cars have much in common mechanically as well as ancestrally. One link between them is the steam-powered fardier Nicolas-Joseph Cugnot, who built it in 1769. Unfortunately for him, steam trucks were not really common until the mid 1800's. While looking at this practically, it would be much harder to have a steam truck. This is mostly due to the fact that the roads of the time were built for horse and carriages. Steam trucks were left to very short hauls, usually from a factory to the nearest railway station. In 1881, the first semi-trailer appeared, and it was in fact towed by a steam tractor manufactured by De Dion-Bouton. Steam-powered trucks were sold in France and in the United States, apparently until the eve of World War I. Also, at the beginning of World War II in the United Kingdom, they were known as 'steam wagons'.

Question Signage of business routes varies, depending on the type of route they are derived from. Business routes paralleling U.S. and state highways usually have exactly the same shield shapes and nearly the same overall appearance as the routes they parallel, with a rectangular plate reading "BUSINESS" placed above the shield (either supplementing or replacing the directional plate, depending on the preference of the road agency). In order to better identify and differentiate alternate routes from the routes they parallel, some states such as Maryland are beginning to use green shields for business routes off U.S. highways. In addition, Maryland uses a green shield for business routes off state highways with the word "BUSINESS" in place of "MARYLAND" is used for a state route.

Question The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) issues Hours of Service regulations. At the same time, they govern the working hours of anyone operating a commercial motor vehicle (CMV) in the United States. Such regulations apply to truck drivers, commercial and city bus drivers, and school bus drivers who operate CMVs. With these rules in place, the number of daily and weekly hours spent driving and working is limited. The FMCSA regulates the minimum amount of time drivers must spend resting between driving shifts. In regards to intrastate commerce, the respective state's regulations apply.


The concept of a bypass is a simple one. It is a road or highway that purposely avoids or "bypasses" a built-up area, town, or village. Bypasses were created with the intent to let through traffic flow without having to get stuck in local traffic. In general they are supposed to reduce congestion in a built-up area. By doing so, road safety will greatly improve.
A bypass designated for trucks traveling a long distance, either commercial or otherwise, is called a truck route.
