Arpin of Rhode Island has been your trusted neighborhood movers in RI since 1900. Whether you’re moving around the corner or "all the way" across the state, Arpin of RI is one of the best moving companies you can find to make all aspects of your move stress-free.

Arpin of Rhode Island is the largest and longest-serving moving company in the state of RI. We are fully insured, bonded, and licensed movers in RI with a 5-star rating with the BBB.

What is a Local Residential Move?

There are two types of moves; interstate and local. Local moving is typically defined as a shorter distance move within your own state’s borders, while an interstate move generally is a longer distance move from one state to another.

Arpin of RI prides itself on speed, hard work, and efficiency. Our crews are extensively trained and are very experienced, so they can do significantly more work in the same time frame than other moving companies who may advertise "cheaper" hourly rates

Residential Packing Services

Arpin of RI also offers packing services in addition to our local and long-distance moving services. We have the perfect cartons for every item you may have, whether it is a fragile vase, an antique oil painting, or a 65" TV. Our packers are the best in the business and are renowned for their ability to pack quickly and efficiently. Arpin RI also has a hybrid packing program where you can do all of the packing yourself, we pack everything, or combination in between.

Local Moving & Storage Options

We offer full-service storage solutions as well if you during the moving process. Unlike most self-storage, which are metal garages built on cold concrete slabs, Arpin of RI’s warehouse will store all of your items in wooden vaults above ground. Unlike self-storage where all of your belongings are stored, unwrapped, all your non-carton furniture items are wrapped in quilted furniture pads, and all upholstered items are wrapped in plastic stretch wrap in Arpin of RI’s one-acre warehouse. Whether the storage term is long or short, you’re storing a little or a lot, Arpin of RI has a storage solution to fit every one of your needs.

Getting a Residential Moving Quote

Residential Moving SpecialistArpin of RI offers you two ways to get a local moving price quote. The conventional method is to make an appointment for a local moving specialist to visit your home for a no-obligation in-home moving survey. During this time, you will provide the moving specialist a guided tour of your home to determine the items that need to be moved and packed, as well as truck access. When completed, our moving specialist will furnish you with a written estimate for the services requested.

We can also perform a "virtual estimate" without any person to person contact. With a virtual moving estimate, you and your moving specialist will meet screen to screen using a mobile app similar to FaceTime. At this time, you can provide the same guided tour using your cell phone camera as the eyes and ears for our moving specialist.

We stand behind the accuracy of both options and encourage you to choose whichever option you feel most comfortable with.

What Our Customers Say About Our Service

I was extremely pleased with our residential move with Arpin of Rhode Island. Tom provided the initial quote for the move which was professional, competitive & accurate. Gabrielle coordinated the timing of the move & answered our many questions with kindness & patience. We were able to get boxes from the facility free of charge which was extremely helpful. Communication was excellent. Everything was timely, no waiting & wondering. Our moving professionals - Ron, Nick, Pierre & Johnny - were awesome. They were so helpful, professional & careful during the entire move! We had absolutely no damage to our homes or our personal items. Everything ran so smoothly & there were no surprises! Following the move, they picked up all the boxes & packing paper for a very reasonable fee. I would not hesitate for one second to use the services of Arpin for any future needs. I can’t say enough good things about the people and services. If you’re moving, give them a call. You won’t be disappointed!!

I used Arpin moving services twice in the last 14 months. I requested the same crew for the 2nd move . All the guys were professional, courteous, and conscious of our new home. They laid blankets down on our carpets as it was raining on the day of our move. I would absolutely use them again.

Checked in to pickup a load going to Miami FL. Immediately told to back into a door. Went inside the warehouse and James Trimble load me asap. Another gentleman helped but I didn’t get his name. Speed and efficiency is second to none. Great job guys!Large space to maneuver a 53ft trailer and able to park overnight on site.

Great experience with the move! Team was friendly and professional. Easy process from beginning to end, from making appointment for the price quote with Customer Service, to the initial walk through for the price quote, to the end of the process of the movers showing up and moving. They were fast and efficient and even through a couple of deals/money off towards me and my Fiancé. I would highly recommend Arlin of Rhode Island to family and friends! Great Company!
Ryan H.
I was so impressed with the professional organizational skills of the three men who helped me move I could not have been happier. They worked very well together and made light of having to cover furniture and even left me with the covers so the furniture would not get ruined. They totally took control of moving from two different locations and knew of short cuts that were advantageous to me.
Joanne S.
At each step of the move, the Arpin team was helpful and friendly.From the availability of used(gently) moving boxes to offering tips for how we could save money on the move. The final cost for the move was significantly less than the estimate. We recommend Arpin to everyone we know considering a move.
Francis M.
The movers were hard working and professional. When something went wrong (I’ve moved many times and something always goes wrong) they took accountability and made it right. You can’t ask for more than that. Pricing was competitive and the service from their back office (Steve F. and team) was super. I would recommend them to my friends.
Rick S.
They were there when we needed them. Very professional moving us from a large storage unit to a a two floor townhouse. Arrived on time and finished early. Good two truck team with four movers. Adjusted final price downward as they completed the job earlier than anticipated. Fair and honest.

Liberty Moving and Storage/ Arpin of Rhode Island is a great place to work. I have been with them for almost 9 years. Great people
Jimmie D.
Having spent 28 years in the Army I have made many, many moves. The best moving experiences I have had is with Arpin. I just stood out of the way and they did it all. Three times I moved in NYC and it was incredible how the driver was able to maneuver the big rig 18-wheeler in some of the tightest spaces I have ever witnessed. As in all the moves with Arpin, the crew was totally professional and packed, then unpacked, my belongings with great care. Their techniques used to move the large items and a grand piano, demonstrates a very a high level of skill I have never witnessed with other DoD contracted movers. I will always call on Arpin of Rhode Island to move me again. I can't say enough good things about this excellent company and the crews they train to care my most precious belongs. Thanks guys; You know who you are.

My experience with Arpin of Rhode Island was a very positive one! The driver politely initiated the process, and everyone was extremely helpful and very professional! I would highly recommend using this them.
Anne L.
We contacted several large moving companies to select one to move us from RI to FL and selected Arpin based on pricing and initial service. They were fantastic! The packing crew and driver were so professional and careful with our items and our home. The delivery time was excellent, and the crew that delivered our furniture was just as great. I would highly recommend Arpin to everyone.
