The Move Gurus team did an amazing job moving my furniture from Tuscaloosa to Birmingham. Since I moved for a job, I could not be there, but that did not matter because the Move Gurus team was trustworthy, reliable, and responsive. They did a great job and I will definitely be using them again in the future!

I have nothing but good to say about Moving On. They moved our belongings from a town home to a 3-story old home in Pennsylvania, and were able to do so in part without our supervision because we could not arrive at the house as fast as they could. This was wonderful. They checked everything with us by phone during the day various times, so when we arrived most everything was unloaded, in the right room and this saved us a lot of wear and tear. They checked again when we arrived in case we wanted objects changed and finished the move with delivering boxes and a couple items of furniture at a second location nearby. Anything we asked, we always got a smile and a yes, both from Matt the owner and from all his staff. Would use again in a second. Highly recommended!

This was my first time using Motivated Movers and I will be using them again. I had Johnson and Myles as my movers and they were punctual and very professional. They arrived right on time and got to work immediately. I was moving from the terrace level to a third floor and they accessed the area to see which would be the easier and quicker way to get everything moved. Once they started they were on a roll. If I had to use the company again I would request those two.

I hired them for moving large, heavy furniture. They were so good and professional, I am trying to find other jobs for them to do around the house. If you get the chance, use them.

Sorry I am getting to this a few days late. thanks to the crew of Shaw, Markezz and Devonte for not only moving furniture, but also relocating all the boxes at old house to the basement- saved me soooo many steps. You were open and helpful to anything that needed done and made it look "easy"

Pick Up Movers was super professional during my move. They packed every single item with care even glassware. We hired them for packing and moving our very full 2-bed apartment into a new house, and the service was polite, efficient and flawless. Not a thing broken and everything that was taken apart was built back with care. Would highly recommend this great moving service.

I had a 4th floor apartment move to a 2 story home and needed movers. The Move Mavericks came highly recommended from a good friend as he had just used them and raved about the service. They made a usually painful experience completely painless. Professional movers showed up on time, worked hard all day, and took care of my belongings as if they were their own. I've moved all over the United States, and this move experience was easily the best my family has ever experienced. We will never use another moving company. Thanks Jim, Cannon, and Team Move Mavericks!

I needed some heavy furniture moved from my garage into my basement. They came within a week! Very friendly and professional. Payment was taken care of online and I could even leave a tip. I would use them again, for sure.

    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.
