Jersey City America’s Golden Door
Jersey City, the second largest city in New Jersey, is the site of the first permanent European community in the state. Starting in the 1630’s, fur trappers, farmers and agents of Dutch investors left their home base in New Amsterdam for new frontiers on the west bank of the deep, wide river now known as the Hudson. Conflict with the native Lenapes doomed these early settlements, but in 1660, under the aegis of Peter Stuyvesant, governor-general of New Netherland, a fresh start was made atop the Palisade Hill in a new town known as Bergen. From this beginning, farms spread throughout the region, and a school, a religious congregation, and the apparatus of self-government developed rapidly. Despite the construction of a major stage coach road in 1764, and the town’s precarious position between the forces of the British and American Revolutionists, the quiet and essentially rural nature of Bergen persisted until the early years of the 19th century. Then, in 1804, the west bank of the Hudson once again began to attract attention. A group of investors, led by three New Yorkers, purchased land along the waterfront for a new development which they called the Town of Jersey.
Robert Fulton, the investor and entrepreneur, soon bought land in Jersey for a dry dock and in 1812 began to run his steamboats to and from Manhattan. Linking with the stagecoaches to Newark and Philadelphia, the Fulton ferries were the harbinger of Jersey City’s future as a major transportation terminus, and the mainland connection for people and freight headed to and from New York. By the mid-1830’s, with the simultaneous arrival of both the railroad and the Morris Canal, Jersey City’s role in the regional economy was sealed. Good transportation and access to fuel from the coalmines of Pennsylvania attracted industry which, in turn, drew a growing population. By 1838, the young town was sufficiently robust to separate from Bergen as the new and independent municipality of Jersey City. In the 1880’s, Irish and German immigrants, fleeing famine and revolution in their homelands, gave the city another boost and established a pattern which endured. To this day, Jersey City remains the first home for many newcomers to America.

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.
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!
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!
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.
HIGHLY RECOMMEND! 201 Movers were excellent and had great communication.

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.

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.

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!
