Delivery Time Frame Calculator

See when your items will arrive to your new home.

Step 1:
Enter your out of storage date:

Step 2:
Enter your 'Earliest Delivery Date':

'Earliest Delivery Date':
This will be the first date that you are able to accept delivery. The purpose is to make sure that we are not arriving before you (or your 3rd party) are physically at your new location to accept delivery.

If you are ready for delivery ASAP, please enter the next date, after your 'out of storage' date, as your earliest delivery date.

* If you are ready for delivery ASAP, your delivery time frame
  will be 5 to 15 calendar days. Please make sure to read our 'delivery time frame policy' below.

Delivery time frame policy

Option 1: on your 'out of storage' form you will find an 'Earliest Delivery Date' field. You will be asked to select a date. If you are ready for delivery ASAP the delivery time frame is 5 to 15 calendar days.


Option 2: due to logistic reasons, when entering 'Earliest Delivery Date' which is 8 calendar days or greater from the day after your 'out of storage' date, delivery time frame will be 'Earliest Delivery Date' + 7 calendar days.

** Count starts the day after 'out of storage' date.


Example: if your 'out of storage' date is 03/20 and you requested an 'Earliest Delivery Date' on 03/28 the delivery time frame will be 03/28 + 7 calendar days.

Late Delivery Compensation: $100 for every day late per policies described above.

Basic Insurance

Image Not FoundBasic insurance is provided by California New York Express Movers at
no extra cost. This insurance is mandated by the Department of Transportation and values all lost or damaged goods at sixty cents per pound per item.

Replacement Value Insurance

Insurance is one of those things you'd rather have and not need than need and not have.

We highly recommend purchasing insurance. If you choose to purchase full value replacement insurance, we request that you obtain coverage for your goods as early as possible. In any case, insurance must be purchased prior to your actual moving day. Don't wait for the last minute as some insurance companies, for their own reasons, refuse to insure you on moving day itself.

1) Maybe you already have insurance
If you have renter's or homeowner's insurance, you may already be covered or be able to purchase a coverage policy through your personal insurance agent.

2) Purchase full value replacement insurance
In lieu of the basic valuation, which is already included with your move, we highly recommend you to purchase actual cash value or full value protection which is a more robust coverage. This coverage is only sold by a few specialized insurance companies.

Our experience has led us to recommend two companies: Baker
& for the purchase of this product, although you may choose your own insurance company to work with.

Please accept our apology in advance, as we are prevented from giving you more details and pricing about this coverage. Both companies are separate entities and any information given by us might be in conflict with their prices & practices.

Understanding The Meaning of Basic Insurance

The Department of Transportation (DOT) mandates all moving companies to provide basic insurance. This insurance values all lost or damaged goods at sixty cents per pound per item. All moving companies are required to provide the exact same insurance.

In order to refund clients with a sixty cents per pound per item, companies first need to know how many pounds your item weighs. To determine your items weight, all moving companies use the same official DOT chart, containing standard household goods weight and volume. (it is the same chart they use originally to determine your move price. See pricing page). Once weight has been determined, moving companies then multiply it by 0.60 cents.

For example: in the DOT chart, a large box is considered to weigh 31.5 lb. Companies multiply 31.5 lb x $0.60, which comes to $18.90. Disregarding the content of the box, this will be your refund for any claim you might file for a large box after your shipment was delivered (according to the basic insurance terms and conditions).

What the DOT had in mind when they created the basic insurance model
When a moving company gets paid by you to move a large box, its charging you approximately the same ($18.90), but the content of the box may be much higher in value, just for example lets say $750.

If moving companies only got paid $18.90 each time to transport a box, but had to pay $750 when a box was damaged, the industry would collapse. The DOT understood this and stepped in to create the basic insurance model. On one hand, this allows companies not to go bankrupt, and on the other hand it holds them responsible for their work. They refunded the customer the exact amount they charged him for that box, but in actuality the company lost since they already spent so much money on transporting the shipment, paying the movers, the trucks, the fuel, etc. in order for any company to survive the moving business, it must mature and become highly professional.

On this last note, we understand that explaining the "moving company's side of the story" might not always comfort you, and because of that we highly recommend buying a full value replacement policy.

For your consideration - These are the two most common issues with basic and full insurance (applicable to all moving companies)

Furniture made from particle board: Some furniture are made from this material, and due to its' perishable nature, tend not to survive a
cross country move. You can of course attempt at shipping these items, however both basic and third party insurances exclude these items from their coverage.

PBO boxes (boxes that were packed by owner): Since moving companies do not know which items were packed inside such boxes, the condition of the items, and the way the items were packed - they are unable to assure their safe arrival, and therefore exclude them from both basic and full coverage. Third party insurances limit the coverage for such items (approximately $250/box, please speak with your broker). For this reason, if you have items that are especially delicate or expensive, we strongly recommend to have the movers pack them for you.

Storage Fees & Policies

Delivery Radius (150 miles)
We only deliver within 150 mile radius from our NY/LA/SF branches. If your final destination is outside this radius, you will need to make arrangements (at your own cost) to pick up your items yourself or by a different moving company.

Storage at Pick Up City
1 month of FREE storage is included (count starts on the pick up date). Once your free storage has expired, the monthly storage fee is $0.63 per cubic foot, per month, plus tax (min $150/month). Charge is prorated at a daily rate based on a 30 day cycle. For delivery time frame please read our policy in the link below "Delivery Time Frame Calculator & Policy". (free storage applies for long distance jobs only).

Storage at Destination City
For a one time transfer fee ($250 min - $500 max; based on $1 per cubic foot) your items will be transferred and stored at your destination city. Once ready, and upon your signed request, items will be delivered within 5 DAYS GUARANTEED. 1 month FREE storage included (count starts on the pick up date) & the monthly charge is the same as "storage at pick up city". Important: Keep in mind that it takes 7 to 15 days from your PU date for your shipment to arrive to Destination storage.

Default Storage Location
All storage jobs, by default, stay at pick up city (although CNYX reserves the right to store goods at destination storage).

When Ready for Delivery
When ready for delivery, please contact our office at least 15 days in advance to fill out a 'Storage release form'. Before filling out the form please click the link below. The "Delivery Time Frame Calculator" will assist you in best determining your preferred EDD (earliest delivery date), and understand our delivery policy. Indicate your preferred EDD on the 'Storage release form'. Last charged date for storage: If stored at the pick up city, your EDD will be your last charged date for storage. If stored at the destination city, your actual delivery date will be your last charged date.

 Delivery Time Frame Calculator & Policy 

Accessing Storage
Since we are not a self storage, every time a client wants to access his items, he needs to make an appointment with our local branch and to be accompanied by one or two of our crew members. For this reason, an hourly fee of $30 (min 1 hour) will be charged to gain access to stored items.

Storage Payments
Storage payments can be made by credit card only and are billed on the 28th of each month for the previous month. For example, the last few days of April and the full month of May will be charged on May 28th. However, we will prorate according to the actual days occupied when entering and leaving storage, as explained above. Storage balance is separate from the move balance and must be paid in full before released from storage. A $15 late fee per month is imposed on late payments. A $20 fee is imposed on any instrument of payment returned unpaid. Annual increase of 7% will be added to monthly storage fee every 12 month cycle counting from your pick up date. If storage is unpaid for 3 months, items will be auctioned.
