We had a big move requiring two trucks, a big house and a trip from Alabama to Georgia. Matt and his crew did an outstanding job! After evaluating our home with a thorough walkthrough, he gave a very affordable quote. The office manager, Kim stayed in contact with us and quickly responded to all our questions. On move day, 3 men worked from 10:30 to 7:30 packing the trucks. The added perk was storing our furnishing overnight in Birmingham and then driving to Atlanta the next day for unloading. They quickly and efficiently unloaded and the whole process was complete. I would definitely recommend Moving On as an alternative to the "big" moving companies!

We'd never had our house deep cleaned before and decided to hire a pro instead of attempting it ourselves. Jennifer spent the better part of 2 entire days working well into the night cleaning every square inch of our home. Most other companies said they could be in and out in less than a day's time which tells me they would have done a sub-par job. Jennifer's obsession over cleaning everything (including places you'd never know were dirty to begin with) set her apart from the other companies that offered me their business and is the reason we are scheduling her to come periodically clean from now on. Highly recommended.

Able Body did a GREAT job with our move. They worked at a steady pace, didn't break anything, which is important to us, as we had another moving company who broke LOTS of things one time! Able Body's entire moving crew was just as courteous and friendly and the cost was very competitive! We would definitely use them again and we highly recommend them.

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.

Five stars for Trib Express!!! I was so happy and relieved when Nathan called in response to my plea for help with a small move between Montgomery and Birmingham. I could not have been more pleased....I recommend TribEspress and look forward to calling on Nathan in the future. It was a pleasure and a very fair price. Thank you, Nathan and John!

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.

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!

A+ service! Drew was the first pro to show up after having several people to not appear at all. He’s very polite, punctual and professional. I figured what I needed to have done would take several hours but he got the job done in no time. I’m planning on hiring him again in the future for other projects and would definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a reasonable and dependable pro.

The McCann Brothers did an awesome job! We had some confusion regarding pricing on the front end due to the limitations of the website. However, they honored the originally quoted price. They were professional and moved our piano without any damage or problems.

    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 should you tip furniture movers?

    Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.

    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.
