About Us

When Michael Federico founded Liberty Moving on Liberty Ave. in Jamaica, NY in 1939, he wanted to offer local residents an honest and reliable company to handle the stressful process of moving. Now in our third generation, in an industry where so many companies come and go, Liberty Moving and Storage is the name that has withstood the test of time. At Liberty Moving, we realize that every moving or storage project we handle is unique. Our success and longevity is strongly correlated to our commitment to a core set of values: honesty, integrity, and reliability. No tricks. No gimmicks. No shortcuts. Our team members are continuously trained on delivering the personalized service and customized results our clients deserve during the stressful process of moving a family or a business.

Why Choose Liberty as Your Local or Long Distance Mover?

Liberty Moving and Storage was founded over 75 years ago, focusing on delivering the most value for our customers. Everyone knows companies can’t survive if they don’t deliver on their promises to customers. Liberty is still run by the same family today.

Liberty is a shareholder of the world’s largest and #1 relocation company, United Van Lines, a 2 billion dollar organization. United handles over 250,000 moves a year and employee relocations for 430 of the Fortune 500 companies. 43% of every interstate move in this country is performed by a Unigroup company. As the largest agent in New York, we service Long Island, New York City, Westchester and parts of Connecticut.
With both weight based or guaranteed upfront pricing, you either know exactly what you’re going to pay or just pay for the actual weight or time (local moves) you use. Our moving consultants will work with you to determine the best pricing option for your relocation or storage needs. Have it your way, everyone loves options.

Unlike other movers, Liberty offers a dedicated move coordinator, your advocate and single point of contact that will walk you through your entire move. Their only job is to make sure you are satisfied and have a stress free experience. This is why we have an A+ rating with the BBB, Angie’s list, and many positive online reviews.

Our crews are background checked and drug tested. Local or independent movers don’t have to follow the same rules and guidelines as we do. We always provide certified labor at both your origin AND your destination. We never hire undocumented or day labor, which is common with independent companies.

We own and operate modern, secure, and climate controlled storage facilities locally at our warehouse in Commack, Long Island. Our storage options range from temporary to long term and from residential to commercial. Through United Van Lines we have access to over 1,000 storage facilities in the United States and another 1,200 worldwide.

With a network of over 1,000 locations in North America and another 1,200 locations throughout the world, your shipment is under our authority and coverage from origin to destination anywhere in the world. Many local independent companies don’t own any long distance tractors and trailers, just local trucks. This is why we’re able to offer satellite tracking on your shipment, because we own the trucks. Competitors will transfer your shipment to a warehouse, then to a 3rd party freight carrier, then to another warehouse and finally to another local truck, handling it multiple times. This is where damage and missing items always occur.

All of our trucks, blankets, and moving materials are sanitized. You never have to worry about picking up any unwanted house guests when moving with us.

We offer full value coverage protection with NO DEDUCTIBLE. If we break something we replace it at today’s cost, not depreciated value or what you paid for it 20 years ago. Liberty and United are self-insured, so you don’t have to deal with a third party and fight for a settlement like with some of our competitors. Your goods are always under our authority and liability. Be cautious of companies that sub out your move to 3rd parties!

All the photos on our website are of actual Liberty crews and company vehicles. We only send United moving consultants into your home to give a thorough detailed estimate and set up a move plan to make sure your move goes smoothly. Many of them are former drivers and packers with over 25 years’ experience in the industry.
