Teradon and Matt were professional, personable, quick, careful and did more than I thought 2 guys could do in one day to get me loaded up at my old house and unloaded into my new house! I would highly recommend Precious Possessions to anyone in the Phoenix area looking for reliable and reasonably priced moving help.

I have to say that Jason was simply amazing! We have never used a moving company before and to be honest, I was extremely skeptical of doing so. I found Jason with Student Helping Hands on Thumbtack and he replied right away with a qoute. I found Student Helping Hands to have the best prices in town. Now don't let that scare you. Just because he has the best prices doesn't mean you'll get anything less than the best! His company goes above and beyond and Jason is completely upfront with you on everything. There are no hidden costs. They moved our 2 story house in no time and took pride, care and responsibility for our belongings. That made me feel so at ease. I felt as if my family wasn't just another job for him. He called us by name and took any concerns we had and made them disappear. If you are looking for an amazing moving company, that is affordable, friendly, on time and who will take care of you and your belongings, then I would go with Student Helping Hands. You will not be disappointed and you will thank me that you did! Thanks again Jason for everything. If we ever have to move again, you will be the ONLY person I call.

The move went great! I would use on my next move. Jason was very honest and upfront with the whole moving process. There were no hidden fees. The weather was pretty bad on my moving day, but it didn't slow Jason and his team down.

Mastermind Moving were a tremendous help during our move. Jim & Tim are strong hard working movers. We couldn't of done it without them!! Moving from a large two story house into another large two story house. Most of our large furniture went up stairs. They had extremely positive attitudes and were very careful with our belongings. They worked with us on our budget and made sure we were completely comfortable with the rate. I would highly recommend Mastermind Moving for your moving needs. Jose was very quick to send correspondence and make sure the move went smoothly. Thanks Mastermind Moving, job well done!!

I had scheduled a job with another mover on Thumbtack but they did not come through. I sent another email requesting quotes and Mike send me an email stating that he could pick up my book shelves and deliver them to me. I was skeptical but I agreed, not only did he deliver on his word but he called the furniture store to get it set up for the next day. He calmed my fears and anger after I had been stood up by another moving company. My faith was restored in Thumbtack and I have recommended Mike to 2 others and I will use him again in the future. Thank you Mike. If you want honest trustworthy and a man of his word use Mike.

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.

The best moving experience I've ever had, from start to finish. Their quote was significantly cheaper than what I'd received from other moving companies, and they were very responsive to my questions in the days before the actual move. This was a local move within Phoenix. We went with the full packing and moving service, and the 4 movers were very friendly, thoughtful, and careful with our valuables. The pack went very smoothly and efficiently. The next day, the same 4 guys showed up, and they got everything out of our large 2-bedroom apartment in under 4 hours (even with the additional challenge of 3 narrow flights of stairs!) Moving into our new place was exceptionally smooth and easy, and they placed our large furniture items where we wanted them. Everything else was neatly stacked in such a way as to allow us to move around the apartment while unpacking. Everything was packed and moved safely, and nothing was damaged or broken. I HIGHLY Valley Student Movers!

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 moved with Northstar 2 times now and every time has been a great experience. From the sales call to the crew that arrived at my house everyone was respectful and very helpful in making my decision to use them easy. The moving crew arrived on time and helped me with whatever I needed. I will definitely be referring them and hope to use them again in the future.

We can't say enough about the DiMuras team who handled our move from Fountain Hills to Scottsdale. With moving being one of life's most stressful experiences, your team endeavored to make it as stress free as possible. In addition to being professional, we appreciated their considerate and caring demeanor. All the movers, and especially Tommy were sensitive to my stress level and spoke in reassuring terms. It's great to have the owner of the business there throughout the entire move! We also appreciated the care that was taken to prepare the property with protective runners for the traffic in and out of the house. I understand that our move involved some challenges, one of which was moving a long dresser and a pool table up a turn staircase. Our daughter who was present for the duration of the move and who has moved a number of times within New York City and within the UK and Europe noted that she has never experienced a move that went as smoothly as ours. Much praise is due especially to Tommy who coordinated the moving process and to his assistant.

Alex and company are amazing! We were being strung along by our big-name moving company, and needed to be in Missouri to start a new job. After yet another delay, and yet another "guarantee", we were desperate and found AmerApex Moving. Alex contacted us on a Monday and by Thursday, they were there! They were absolute lifesavers, and did everything they could to take care of our belongings and make us feel at ease. And then they were in Missouri by Saturday to unload everything in our new house! On top of that, they are incredibly friendly and made a stressful situation feel much lighter. We can't thank Alex enough, and wish every moving company out there could be half as professional and effective as his!

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

We are so glad we chose "Best Damn Movers" to move our piano and heavy 3-recliner couch. Samuel and Kendall were organized and prepared and worked as a team to handle our antique 1941 piano and our extra large new leather couch. They were very careful not to mark our wood floors while moving and were efficient and professional and completed the job in less than an hour and even offered to assist with anything else after the job was complete. We would not hesitate to call them again or refer them to anyone needing these services. 5-Star Company 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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
