Moving is stressful. You're fatigue and on edge so having someone else do the heavy lifting is beyond helpful! I was hesitant to trust 'students' with my belongings... don't let the name fool you! Jason was tenacious in explaining how these guys do this every day- they are professionals! They were personable, responsible, and didn't nick a single wall. I don't know how they can lift this stuff all day every day, but they did it with positive attitudes and made a very stressful time less chaotic. I highly recommend this company and being a realtor, I will refer them to all my clients moving! Great service and care.

I hired movers to help with the heavy stuff because of an auto accident I was in a few days prior to moving day. I was nervous trusting someone else moving my possessions but the 2 man crew sent to my house were amazing. I seriously was in ahhhh watching how quickly they worked. They were very gentle with everything and I am not sure I saw them take a 5 second break. What would of taken me 3-4 hours they did in 2. The company and the movers were nothing short of "THE BEST". I would recommend them to any one.

These gentleman are absolute rocks stars. I am single mom of 4 kids and it is very difficult to get stuff done around the house that requires heavy lifting. They were more than willing to help with clean up, loading things on my trailer that needed to be taken to the dump etc. No job was to big or to small. They were professional, hard working and I will definitely hire them again. I know that its difficult to hire people to come into your home that you don't know to do work for you. They are a newer start up company and did a great job. If you are looking for help I would highly consider giving these guys a chance. You won't be disappointed.

I had a 26 foot rental truck.It was as full as it could get with heavy furniture and household items. POG movers arrived on time with 3 men. Within two hours they had the truck unloaded, and had set up our large bed. They handled our belongings with great care. If I could give them more stars than the 5 allowed five, I'd give them ten. Thank you POG movers

They were the best moving company we have ever worked with. They moved us from Arizona to California. They communicated with us regarding arrival times and they stuck to the quote they originally gave us. They also never once complained about how hot it was or how heavy things were. Very professional. We would definitely use them again and recommend them to friends and family. Rodney & Mary Ann Gutierrez

Our moving project was a very heavy and akward hydraulic scissor lift transported from Phoenix, AZ to McAlester, OK. The unit arrived in three days as promised in excellent condition. Lonnie was very easy to communicate with, answered his cell phone each time we checked in and he even helped unload the heavier than expected piece of equipment. Lonnie's attitude and personality was a great plus to our project. I would recommend his services to anyone and everyone. Thanks Lonnie !!!

We hired Simple Moving to move our heavy furniture. Tremaime and his partner were very strong and put everything in it's place as requested without a single bit of damage. Tranaine returned our phone call within an hour and was available the day requested. He was on time. If we need any heavy lifting we will call Simple Moving again.

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.
