In the beginning, Hoboken was a bucolic island of trees and green pastures, separated at the west by marshes and ponds. The land was inhabited by the Lenni Lenape Indians who camped on the island in the summers.
In 1609, Henry Hudson’s ship, the Half Moon, took harborage in Hoboken Cove, by the border of Weehawken, where the navigator noted the island and its green serpentine rock. Hudson and his crew were the first Europeans known to have seen Hoboken, but soon after, others followed, including Peter Stuyvesant, the Dutch governor of Manhattan, who bought all the land between the Hackensack and Hudson rivers in 1658.
More than a hundred years later, in 1783, the “island” was purchased by Colonel John Stevens for 18,360 pounds sterling, about $100,000 today, and settled on the name Hoboken. From 564 bucolic acres, he and his descendants led in the creation of this thriving 21st century city.
Today, Hoboken’s unofficial nickname is the “Mile Square City”,but it actually covers about 1.25 square miles (3.2 km2) of land and an area of 2 square miles (5.2 km2) when including the under-water parts in the Hudson River. During the late 19th/early 20th century the population and culture of Hoboken was dominated by German language speakers who sometimes called it “Little Bremen”, many of whom are buried in Hoboken Cemetery, North Bergen.

After calling around and getting multiple quotes from movers, Amir, owner of Movers 201, sounded the most reliable and truths worthy. The Movers 201 team was on time, efficient, safe, and personable. Crew was absolutely amazing and I would recommend to ANYONE! They made our move from Hoboken to Manhattan SO easy. HIGHLY recommended!

Movers 201 is awesome. They’ve been donating their services to my local elementary school for the past several years. They’ve taken on the delicate task of moving a grand piano. They’ve been on time professional and speedy. And best of all super friendly!

The 3 man moving team at Movers 201 that did my move 2 weeks ago was first class! Joshua, Randi, and Darwin worked as a true team with speed, efficiency, and genuine care and concern for the task at hand and the items being handled. I was very impressed w this squad and would recommend them to anyone in need of movers.
I moved with Movers 201 across the states. The whole process is very smooth. The inventory website is easy to use and Amir has been very responsive. The delivery window is 10 business days and I’m happy that my stuff get delivered on the 1st day of the delivery window. There is no hidden fees, but be aware of there is long distance carrying fee although I was not charged. The moving staff is professional. I would highly recommend Movers 201.
From the very beginning of the whole process starting with the quote process, everyone was very professional. The day of the move four guys showed up, They were all amazing and truly devoted to what they do. We could not have asked for a more efficient crew for our move. We will hire them again!

Very professional business. The 2 man crew arrived on time and made the moving process easy. They were very careful with the handling of our items and made sure that the furniture was wrapped up properly so it wouldn’t get scratched during the move. I would highly recommend them and would definitely use their services again.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! 201 Movers were excellent and had great communication.

We used Movers 201 for a move within NJ and we were very happy with their service. They were very fast with loading and unloading of all of our items but still very careful, taking the time to propely wrap and unwrap the furniture to avoid any damage – all that in 85F heat and with multiple flights of up/down stairs involved.
At the end, the bill ended up to be a few hundred dollars under the estimate.
Can’t say enough good, feeling very grateful to have found this company on YELP. Darwin & Edwin have a can do attitude & found a way to answer yes to all of our requests. Booking was easy, a confirmation call the day before, the crew was in touch the day of, giving me an update on the estimate time of arrival. Showed up on time, ready to work. The pricing was fair. Excellent Mover’s!

Used these guys to move me few weeks ago. Very professional, a real moving company, not just a bunch of guys with a truck. They showed up on time and completed the move within the estimated time frame. Everything was as you would expect from a reputable company. I will definitely use them again the next time I move.
