The Sofia family boasts a New York City heritage stretching back more than a century. In 1880, the family’s ancestral patriarch, Theodoro, emigrated to The Bronx from Italy, joining millions of others in search of a new life and streets flowing with apple pie and hot dogs. After marrying his childhood sweetheart, he bought a stable with his three sons, eventually transforming it into a moving and storage business in 1910. The growing business weathered the Depression and two world wars, and gained prestige when its movers were trusted to transport the Mona Lisa to the Met, to shuttle the King Tut exhibit around the country, and to move the Atlantic Ocean to the East Coast. The family eventually phased out its moving services in favor of storage facilities, which are still run by third-generation Sofias. Today, the company's four storage locations in Manhattan and Brooklyn safely store closet overflow from New Yorkers' oft-cramped apartments. Each facility hosts lockers and storage rooms that range in size from 4’x4’ spaces to entire floors, and boast amenities such as natural-gypsum or terra cotta lining. An outside security company monitors each building at all times, and renters can opt to buy a lock or bring their own. Storage tips, packing materials for sale, and the option of custom shelving in each unit help patrons pack their belongings with long-lasting care, while easy access and complimentary use of hand carts facilitate stuff retrieval.
The moving process can be incredibly wasteful, whether in regards to space, time, and raw materials such as cardboard boxes and pet dragons you've grown too old to keep. Green Boxes Plus endeavors to end that cycle of waste. The company rents out heavy-duty plastic boxes that are both secure and reusable so that clients can simplify the moving process and give Mother Earth a big bear hug in the process. Green Boxes Plus delivers the large, stack-able crates right to their clients' doorsteps along with dollies, zip ties, and labels––all of which are picked up again post-move at no additional cost.
It's easy to recognize the people who work for Bubble Wrap Movers, and not just because they show up in a moving truck. They each wear a black t-shirt designed to look like a tuxedo, except without the white doves stuffed into the sleeves. In this garb, they carefully transport items small and large, such as sectional sofas or mirrors. Their work also has an educational benefit: all of Bubble Wrap Movers' employees are hard-working college students.
