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.

Jason was amazing to work with. He was communicative throughout the entire process, responsive and timely and affordable. The job I asked him to do was on the handyman side of things to hand grind nearly 1,000 sq feet of cement so we could stain the concrete - he showed up with his crew, worked all day long, and cleaned up and left the spot better and cleaner than when he arrived. We had several issues with tool rentals I rented that he took the initiative to handle, overcome and resolve without me having to get involved right away. Hands down one of the best handyman services I've ever encountered. Can't wait for another project to come up to use him again! Best money spent.

Mike and his crew were prompt, courteous, and they treated our home's contents as if it was their own. The crew anticipated our needs, and volunteered to help us with assembly of bedding, dresser mirrors and our sectional sofa without being asked. They emptied our truck in an orderly fashion in under four hours! Another great thing about Mike is his "no job too small" attitude. If you require minor moves or pictures hung, or even minor handyman tasks, these men are the men for you! Another great thing is, at well over 6 1/2 feet tall, these men don't need ladders to reach anything! I highly recommend this very reasonably priced Company if you are in need of moving services!

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!

The Moving Guy moved my 3 bedroom house with ease! I stressed a ton about hiring movers after hearing so many horror stories! Justin and his team made the whole process pain free for my family and I. They were professional, punctual, and friendly, but also affordable. The guys left my belongings in excellent condition and helped arrange my home exactly as I wanted it! We will definitely be using them again.

Carnell saved the day! We had been deep cleaning our condo and bags of trash and clothes, boxes, carpets and more were placed on our back patio. Last night, I realized after all of the recent rain everything had gotten soaked/destroyed. I thought I’d be able to take it to the trash myself but boy was I mistaken. I frantically started looking up trash services and Carnell was the one of the few to respond (and at 8pm!!). He answered all of my questions and gave me detailed information and was available to come early the next morning and finish in record timing. Extreme added bonus - MUCH more reasonably priced. Definitely will use him again and refer him in the future for trash services or just moving!

I was refereed to these guys by a co worker who had used several months back. I called to get an estimate from Jacob who is one of the managers. It was reasonable and affordable compared to the two other quotes i had gotten from other movers. On moving day Jacob and Jonathan came on time, worked non stop, and got the move done faster than i had anticipated. I will most definitely use them again.

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.

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.

Best moving company I have ever used! I've moved 3 times in the last 5 years and I used a different moving company the first time and hated it, so I tried Affordable moving after that and LOVED them so I used them again! I would advise everyone to use this company when they decide to move. The workers were very friendly, hard working and very gentle with all of our belongings. Definitely a 5 star company!

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 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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
