We know timing is important, especially in New York. Our expert crew is ready to make even the most complex move easy.
We’re based in Brooklyn and can help you with local moves around NYC or long-distance moves in or out of the city.
For over 20 years and 20,000 moves, Movers, Not Shakers! makes your move stress-free – with as little or as much help as you need.
Our founder, Mark Ehrhardt, started Movers, Not Shakers! to change the way moving is done. We are New York’s first Green Movers. We use eco-friendly methods to reduce the carbon footprint of your move. Our affordable, waste-conscious methods make moving a more positive experience for clients, citizens, and community.
We’re one of the few licensed movers using Biodiesel: a clean, renewable, carbon- neutral alternative to gas that cuts emissions by as much as 80%. It’s biodegradable, non- toxic, and ultimately better for our health. Our provider, Pureair Diesel by Diesel Direct, collects cooking oil from local restaurants, refines it, and provides us with the clean alternative.
We provide reusable bins so you can pack in a more efficient and eco-friendly manner. One week before your move, we deliver the bins to your door. On move day, we wrap your furniture and move the bins. Give us a call after the move and we’ll come pick up the empty bins.
E-waste is responsible for 70% of the toxins found in landfills, and the textile industry is one of the leading producers of greenhouse gases. We reduce this impact by dropping off bags from Wearable Collections in advance of our moves. We donate your discarded items to our partners.
We won’t shake you down for a higher price. In New York City, time is money. That’s why hourly companies have no incentive to finish on time. Our experienced sales team will work with you to provide an accurate estimate. You owe it yourself to move forward with Movers, Not Shakers! New York’s first green moving company.
We offer VIP service at a midrange cost. Once we get your inventory, we evaluate the below factors and give you a price. If your circumstances remain the same, so will the quote.

We are an insured and licensed moving company. However, your building may require us to present that information in the form of a “Certificate of Insurance.” It is a legal form that needs to include information held by the building, the staff of which either gives that information to you to forward to us, or provides it directly to us, depending on the amount of legal verbiage involved. The document indemnifies the building in the unlikely event something occurs during the move.
Once you’ve signed your lease or closed on your new home or apartment, here are some good general guidelines to follow to help make your move go smoothly.

Our reusable bins save over 80 pounds of cardboard with each move and save more than 1,000 trees each year.
We have successfully completed over 20,000 moves since 2002. Stress-free move no matter the situation.
