Since 2009 LightningVan has provided Five Star moving service to thousands of New Yorkers and become the modern template for urban man with a van services. We’re striving to grow our reputation and expertise starting with your next move.

Our Mission

New York is a tough city. Though we all try to keep it together throughout our bustling daily routines there comes a time when you have to reach out for assistance. LightningVan is there for you. We provide the strength, knowledge and equipment right when you need it most, moving day. We’ve become the friendly, empathetic moving company that provides relief and respite from the horrors of uncaring or antagonistic movers. We will bend over backwards to accommodate all your needs from your first email to getting the couch cushions in place. Our goal is to end the move and hear, “That was great!” or even better, “That was fun!”.


Colin and his team are super professional and offer stellar service! They responded with a reasonable quote very quickly and were flexible with my schedule for pick up and delivery. They went above and beyond carrying a couch many flights of stairs. I definitely recommend them, they are awesome!
