The Steinway Story

Providing Legendary Service to NYC and Beyond

Our History

Founded over 90 years ago, Steinway Moving & Storage provides professional and accredited moving and storage services for both luxury residential and commercial clients throughout New York City, the Tri-State and greater Northeast areas.

At the helm is Matt Schwartzberg, who has been an integral part of the company’s growth over the last 26 years. Responsible for leading sales and marketing efforts, Schwartzberg’s focus is to continue to build and maintain the company’s impressive client base in the New York Metro region.   

For Schwartzberg, continuing to cultivate his vision and develop the company culture is of paramount importance, but he emphasizes that this is strictly a team effort. Along with his business partner Tim Gurtner, leader of Steinway’s Commercial Services Division, and Laurie B. Koehler, VP of Business Administration, he has built a company that prides itself on service “from the first contact to the last piece in.”

Everyone, from the movers, drivers and packers to the coordinators and administrators, contributes to the face of Steinway Moving & Storage, many of whom have been with the company for more than a quarter of a century.

Their collective focus on quality, attention to detail and a genuine hands-on approach is designed to create a seamless transition for clients as they go through what can be a stressful ordeal. Schwartzberg estimates he has moved close to 100,000 families and businesses through the years, with a tremendous percentage of those being repeat customers.

This commitment is what sets Steinway Moving & Storage apart from the competition, and is the key reason they have been able to build lasting relationships with clients throughout the last five decades. Their reputation for being honest, reliable and fair precedes them.

Simply put, Steinway Moving & Storage has never lost sight of what matters most: the people they are serving.
