NYC Mefites: What are the best options for moving a sofa from Brooklyn to the West Village? If you've used a good "man with a van," please recommend, but any suggestions are appreciated.

define "best". Cheapest? Safest? Fastest?

Cheapest (and possibly fastest) is getting a friend with a Zipcar account to rent a pickup truck and paying the cost of the rental and some decent beer.

Yeah, my suggestion was also going to be the zipcar route. If you're looking for moving company recs, though, I had fantastic service from Oz Moving, but it wasn't cheap.

If you've got six friends, you could probably do it via subway.

Sven Moving is my go-to for this sort of thing.

Intense Movers. They are fantastic, smart, fast, fun. You won't regret it.

We use Ken Cushman, with his van, his CELL #: 646-713-4258.

This guy was the cheapest, by a mile, extremely decent price, just the thing for when I moved from Bushwick to FiDi: http://www.freewebs.com/kevinsvanservice/kevinsvanservice.htm

We used Band With a Van when we moved. Rob was very friendly & reasonably priced.
