LIMSA — We'll Help You Make the Right Move.

We’re Long Island’s premier group of moving and storage professionals, dedicated to providing you with honest, reliable service.

Long Island Movers you can trust


Are you looking for Long Island Movers? LIMSA (Long Island Moving and Storage Association) is an association of licensed professional Long Island movers who adhere to LIMSA’s strict Code of Ethics which promises you honest treatment at fair prices. A recent study shows that LIMSA members made more than 51,000 moves a year. According to the N.Y. State Department of Transportation, only nine minor complaints were filed related to those moves. All were resolved to the customers’ satisfaction.

The best way to get an honest estimate from a Long Island Moving company is to contact and compare no more than three licensed and professional movers who serve your area, not operators thousands of miles away trying to look like they are your neighbors.

The easiest way to do this is to click the “LIMSA Members” link above and call or check the web site of three LIMSA movers in or near your community. LIMSA members serve all of Long Island, as well as Queens and Brooklyn.

We created this Web site to help you find Long Island movers you can trust, warn you about Internet sites and phone directories that use false advertising, and to advise you how to avoid mistakes that can make your move a very stressful experience.

The Long Island Moving and Storage Association was the first moving industry association to create a consumer information web site in early 1996. This site, a Golden Web Award Winner, is dedicated to helping you make the right long distance or local move.

If you ever have a legitimate complaint about one of our members, our Grievance Committee will immediately address it.

Why Should You Hire Only Licensed Movers?

States have regulatory agencies that qualify and license members of certain professions to protect the public. Doctors, dentists, lawyers and, yes, even movers are among those who must be licensed to operate a practice or business serving consumers. Professional licensed movers spend time learning their profession. They follow state and Federal rules regulating their business, train their workers and invest thousands of dollars establishing a real place of business, paying experienced help and operating expensive trucks and other equipment.
Unlicensed operators may make you an attractive offer but think about letting people into your home who are not back-ground checked, not legitimate employees, and not insured. They most likely would not qualify to work for a legitimate employer who pays for workers’ compensation insurance, health insurance and other benefits that tend to attract solid citizens. You have little recourse if there is a problem with an unlicensed operator as they are insulated by cell phone numbers, no real place of business, rental trucks and no internet posting. Understand that allowing people like this into your home comes with significant risk and no recourse.
