I hired Precious Possessions to move our 2 story home in Phoenix. We have some very heavy pieces & items that needed to be disassembled. The company sent Vince & Eddie for the move & we could not have asked for two men that worked any more efficiently. They arrived on time, were professional, polite, & wasted no time throughout the day. After about 13 hours of very hard labor, everything was moved with care, reassembled, & nothing was left incomplete. I would highly recommend this company for any move.

We found/scheduled Express Moves through the Thumbtack website, and received excellent, responsive service from the initial reservation to the very end of our very labor-intensive office relocation. We had to change the date and truck size on very short notice, and Robert and his teams provided us with outstanding service, going 'above and beyond' to ensure that our office relocation was fully completed in the tight timeframe required in our circumstances. And although it took every bit of 12 hours to do so, Robert and his crews were consistently patient, pleasant, flexible and extremely hard-working throughout the entire day. We highly recommend Express Moves Movers!!!

I moved locally over Labor Day Weekend. I hadn't hired movers in a very long time because of horrendous past experiences with some in the East Valley. Had I not searched through Thumbtack, I would have never found this gem of a moving company. Compared to other moving companies wanting to charge me upwards of $400+ just to move a small amount of things from a one bedroom apartment to another one bedroom apartment (that was literally 4 miles down the road), this one was extremely reasonable. Sylvester and Ricky came to help me and they were exceptional. They were extremely professional, polite, and respectful to me and my belongings. They made sure to ask me exactly how I wanted things and even offered to throw away some of my trash. It was hard for me to let them do these things, even if they were included in the price of the package, because I am so used to doing them myself and I can't just not help. They completely changed my views on local moving companies. I would recommend them to anyone!

These guys did an amazing job with our move. We moved a three bedroom two bathroom house and these guys whipped out the work. Our moving crew was extremely efficient and nice. They showed up early with our permission (it was nice that they checked in first to make sure that would be okay). Also, very affordable pricing. This is in part due to how quickly they got the work done which kept the hourly charge at a minimum. You will not sacrifice quality for price if you choose this moving company.

Instead of paying to rent a u-haul truck, spent the money to have Moving Done Light do all the moving and labor for less. Great Value and responsivness to requests. Two younger stronger guys, better than two older and out of shape folks. Give them a fair chance and be surprised of the work they can do.

Trickshot Billiards is above and beyond what a pool table company should be. Frank took our used table and made it look amazing. It ended up taking more time and labor than any of us knew and Frank made sure to keep us in constant contact and it was well worth it. I recommend them to ANYONE looking to have any work what so ever done to their table. If you chose another person to do your work, you will regret it. He is an artist and a true professional. He will forever be our go to company.

Jason did a good job moving a challenging wardrobe cabinet set. We required an early evening delivery, but he was quite late due to working other jobs. Recommend scheduling with him for first thing in the morning if punctuality is important.

Daniel and his team did an outstanding job moving my mother from Peoria to Sun City, AZ. The entire move was orchestrated from Florida, and Daniel responded to every email, text and phone call in a timely and professional manner. Daniel and his team arrived at the appointed time and called to let me know he was on his way. My mother was extremely pleased with every aspect of the move. Everything was handled with loving care; nothing was broken or damaged. The cost of the move was very reasonable. Highly recommend Dignity Moving.

I got lucky and Sean and his crew were able to squeeze me in at the last minute for a move. Friendly, responsive and excellent work!!! They wrapped and covered all my furniture and beds at no extra cost and didn't complain a lick about moving 40+ boxes weighing over 40lbs each from an upstairs house. Would definitely use again.

Oscar and his coworker drove the Pienske moving truck to my house for me, loaded everything as instructed, and worked HARD. They carefully wrapped all the furniture and were excellent at planning the placement of the contents onto the truck. You can trust that they will do a good job for you too!

Carnell showed up on time with his friend and moved all my boxes and stuff with no problem at all. I am very happy with his service. He also accommodated a last minute request from my room mate and helped her move as well. Definitely hire him. I felt it was good value for my money considering how hot the weather is in Phoenix now which makes moving on your own so hard. He also had a good attitude overall from the first time we communicated tilk end of the move.

OK - I admit, I didn't wind up using them - but I give them a five star rating all the same. I had placed a request for moving assistance in my own home because I was doing a flooring reno project and had to have all the furniture out of the bedrooms. Of all the moving companies contacted by Thumbtack, only two responded, one of which refused to help.I suppose this was too small of a job for them. Bellhops at least contacted me with a very reasonable offer for assistance. If I ever do move, I will use Bellhops.

I have had several AMAZING experiences with NorthStar Moving. I have used this Professional Moving Co and their storage for my own move! I moved from Woodland Hills to the Central Coast. I utilized their storage facilities! Both of my adult daughters in Sacramento & Sherman Oaks have used NorthStar & we are a very HAPPY family. I highly recommend Northstar Moving!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
