For Moving a Single Shirt
Samuel King; 917-577-1637
Samuel King has a delivery niche: handmade suits and other custom clothes. A number of high-end shops — Greenpoint’s Outlier and British shirtmaker Turnbull & Asser among them — keep him on speed dial for when clients need their items quickly. “In my five years here, I have never gotten one complaint about our delivery service or Sam in any way,” a Turnbull & Asser general manager says, adding that King always manages to arrive for pickups within a half-hour. Jaqueline Queiroz met King about ten years ago on the job at de Corato Atelier, another client of King’s. Queiroz has since left the store but kept in touch with King. Any time she scores something on her local Buy Nothing group or on Facebook Marketplace, she calls him. For smaller items, like bags of clothes or an office chair, King’s rate starts at just $25; larger deliveries are also reasonably priced. Recently, Queiroz paid King to pick up shelves, plates, and an eight-foot-tall refrigerator from Brooklyn for her new Upper East Side restaurant. The job took about five hours, and the total came out to just $150.
