This company is wonderful. They moved everything quickly and safely. While moving into my new home, my neighbors came over to say hello. Apparently, they used the same moving company and they couldn't stop raving about Alex and his team. This company can meet all of your moving needs: value, safety, speed, and great customer service!

I talk to Matthew, the owner, and he is open and honest about his prices. He listened to everything I told him and we came up with a game plan and have got everything set up for our move on June 24 2017. He gives you an actual quote and not an estimate like most the big name moving companies do. The price is alot less than other movers. After our move i will update but from the research I have done on the company, they have received a 5 star rating from several people already.

Kathy had a HUGE task ahead of herself with my home! I am disabled & my home literally became an overwhelming, cluttered mess over time! I kept believing I would get it all done gradually, but after doing one room, it would end up the same way, never allowing me to get the whole house clean, all at once! It was exasperating, as well as too embarrassing to have someone come help me, the way it looked! Ultimately. I HAD NO CHOICE! I HAD TO hire someone to help me, because I had company coming on short notice! It took more than just one afternoon, to make my home peaceful & clean again, but Cathy was committed to get the job done! I really appreciated that, as well as her not making me feel worse than I already did! If anything, she made it seem like it wasn't as big of a deal as I had thought, although I knew it was! Sometimes I worked alongside her Cathy, and found her to be very personable. I definitely recommend her!

Hired Affordable Cleaning to make my life easier as we were moving around the holidays. Ended up having to repeat clean after her, wasted $120. Maybe there’s a misunderstanding about what it means to “move out clean”. Would have owed a lot of money if I did not reclean everything. Did not have a clear game plan of cleaning, has to constantly give her direction on what to do next.

Jason and Coston were our movers, which was just a rearranging of furniture within the same office rather than an actual move. They arrived on time, were very professional and worked diligently the entire time they were here. I would highly recommend them for any moving job.

Promt, professional, and very courteous...! I would hire again in a heart beat. Two critiques--Pricing model is incredibly flawed, yet still very reasonable and they are willing to work with you. The actual movers could use a tad more training on manipulating furniture inside of home. All in all very good service, and will use again in the future.

Charlie, Terry, and T.J. did an excellent job! They treated my furniture and items just like they would treat their own, and finished faster than I expected. They were courteous and knew exactly what they were doing. My experiences with other movers was nowhere as great as my experience with Moving Helpers of the Shoals. Keep up the good work guys! I will definitely use your company again! Thank you! Sherry

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What do moving companies do?

Moving companies provide a range of services to help you physically move out of one residence and move into a new place. But moving companies can do so much more than just haul your belongings across town in a truck. The national average for moving company prices ($250-$350 per hour) reflects the range of services provided. Here are examples of all the ways moving companies can help:

  • Packing: Moving companies can pack your belongings for you. They typically charge a flat rate for both the box and the labor to pack the box. The more time-consuming the belongings are to pack, the higher the cost per box. For example, books could be $5 per box, linens $10 per box, and fine china and glassware $18 per box.
  • Specialty moving: Safely move a baby grand piano, a oversize aquarium, or other specialty items with the help of pro movers.
  • Storage: Many moving companies can store your belongings while you wait for a new home to be remodeled or closing of your new home to be finalized. If you’re moving long-distance, they often provide short-term storage free for a specific length of time, and a set rate after that (such as $60 per square cubic foot of storage space used).
  • Long-distance moves: No need to rent a trailer and move your things; a long-distance moving company can haul your belongings across the country for you. Typically they charge by the cubic foot for moves, with prices based on your destination.
  • Unpacking: Moving companies can even unpack your belongings for you after they have moved them. This is not as common, and will definitely increase the price, but can be helpful if you’re not able to tackle this task yourself.

How much does a moving company charge per hour?

When you’re ready to make a major move, it’s time to research moving companies’ prices. A moving company may charge on average anywhere between $25 and $100 per hour, per worker, for moving services. The price will vary with regional labor rates, local cost to do business, and the level of service the movers are providing. Nationally, the average hourly rate for a moving company is $250-$350 per hour. This price includes a range of pricing, from all-in service with four or more movers on site to standard hourly rates for one or two movers. Other factors that affect moving companies’ prices are packing, stairs (or elevators), and distance. For a full-service move, you pay movers to pack your belongings for you. You may pay for the cost of the moving boxes and an hourly rate per worker, and there may be additional charges for packing fragile items. Stairs will also add to your moving prices. Lifting and carrying boxes and furniture up and down stairs takes more time and creates more physical labor for the workers. Moving companies may charge flat rates for flights of stairs, such as $50-$70 per flight. A moving company may also charge a one-time fee for moving things via elevator, such as $75-$100. If parking is not accessible in front of your home or apartment building, there may also be an additional fee for the added distance to carry your belongings to the truck.

How much does it cost for long-distance movers?

Long-distance movers transport your belongings across the country for you. No more renting a trailer and road-tripping from state to state with your entire house hitched to your bumper. Long-distance movers make the move happen so you can fly to your new home, suitcase in hand, and wait for your furniture to arrive. Nationally, the average price range for long-distance movers is $1,490-$2,230. The distance you are moving and the number of cubic feet the movers have to transport will both affect cost. Another factor in long-distance moving costs is whether you choose to pay for an exclusive move or a consolidated move.

In an exclusive move, which is more expensive, your belongings are the only cargo on the moving truck. The movers travel directly to your new house and deliver your belongings on a scheduled day. A consolidated move is more affordable because the movers transport your belongings along with those of other people, saving them time and gas — which means you save money. The downside is that your belongings typically arrive with a two-week delivery window rather than on a prescheduled day. Read reviews to make sure you can trust the company with your possessions to ensure a peaceful moving process.

How much does it cost to move a one-bedroom apartment across the country?

Professional movers can handle the hard work of moving your one-bedroom apartment across the country for you. You can determine what your move will cost by learning the rate your movers charge per cubic foot and how they factor distance into the total cost. Cross-country movers typically charge based on your belongings rather than apartment size because that determines how much work they will have to do. For example, a studio apartment that is crammed full of things will take more work and moving truck space than the contents of a three-bedroom apartment with very little furniture.

Cross-country movers may also have varying rates, depending on where in the country you are moving. For example, a company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. A one-bedroom apartment costs approximately $1,500 to move across the country.

How much does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving company may charge $5 per cubic foot for consolidated moves along the East Coast and $6 per cubic foot for consolidated moves from the East Coast to the central states or the West Coast. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.
