Why did you call the company “DUMBO Moving”: As a musician my recording studio which was my first business was located in Dumbo. These were the times when DUMBO was a very different place than now full of artists. I just called the company after the neighborhood where I started my first business venture.

I started DUMBO Moving with my first truck in 2007 and since then it has grown into a moving company with 200 trucks, 800 employees and 500K of storage facilities. We are the official Movers for The Mayor’s Office. Our headquarter is in Fort Greene.
