Had a great time using Precocious Possessions to move across town yesterday! Greg was great at explaining their method and how much it would cost. No hidden charges! On moving day the two movers came and walked through the house with me to plan what was moving. They took great care of my furniture and made sure to point out any defects they noticed, including helping us glue a panel back on a dresser we didn’t know was loose. For an extra $20 they also safely packaged my large screen TV. They were quick, friendly and professional. It didn’t feel like they were dragging their feet to get more money. They drove to our new house and quickly unloaded the truck. They reassembled our beds and TV and left. In both houses they ensured they were protecting the floors, walls, stair guard rails and everything else. When they billed us there were no hidden charges. It was exactly what Greg had quoted me over the phone and nothing more. Also, significantly cheaper than all the other large moving companies. I’ll definitely use them again if I move any time soon!

The movers were on time, professional, made me feel relaxed through the whole process, close to the same price I would have paid to move myself, and all done in a little over 2 hours. When I move again, I will definitely go through these movers again. First time hiring movers and I wish I had done it with previous moves!

I was in a bind with not much help and no truck. I decided I needed a mover at the very last minute. Jason responded almost immediately and came in with a very reasonable quote. He was responsive when I had questions and I knew right away after speaking with him, what a professional he was. He and his teammate saved the day! The were careful, efficient and worked hard. I will be recommending him to anyone I know who moves. Thank you Jason!

Daniel and Lynn were my movers and displayed the utmost professionalism and quality work ethic. The previous movers I had had three movers and took 7 hours to do the total move. Daniel and Lynn took 3 hours and and charged $450 less. They were efficient and courteous and did an amazing job. I will use these guys again and will recommend them to everyone I know. Thank you!

I sold my home and needed help moving things to a storage unit. I found the rates with Momentum Movers to be very reasonable, even with three movers on a Sunday. They were very careful not damaging anything in my home (put padding along the stair railings) and very cautious when moving things around corners.....even an elliptical machine. Not only were they efficient they were fun. It seemed they enjoyed their job and kidded around with each other. They were very careful when unloading my things into the storage unit as well as making certain items were available to me when needed (e.g., a dresser to put clothes in towards the front of the storage unit). I wouldn't hesitate recommending Momentum Movers to anyone.

Overall, everything went well and the movers were good. It seemed at times they took a little longer then necessary explaining what they were going to do, rather than just doing it. It was obvious that one of the movers were being trained, he did a very good job and worked hard, but it did slow the job down a bit. We appreciated the attention to detail the guys provided Thank you!

Sun City Muscle Movers LLC came through last minute and helped me out when I was in a bind. I hired another moving company on Friday that didn't show up. Brian and Chris came to my house and were very professional and handle my things with care. They took their time and made sure the job was done professionally as possible. I am very satisfied with their services. They didn't take any breaks and finished my move within the fraction of the time. I will refer this company to my family and peers. Thank you guys so so much.

I was actually quite taken back at the other reviews that people left. People complained about having to pay more for more time and work needed by the company. Well yeah of course if the job description was inaccurate then the quote changes. It’s just a quote. This is common sense. The workers were very professional, friendly and detailed. They were very clear about the cost and that there may be additional fees that apply in case we came across things unmentioned in my request. I did agree to pay more to have them Disassemble and reassemble 2 large pieces of furniture. I was reassured by No limit movers that I was not obligated to have them do so if the quote was out of my range, although he gave me the option to continue with the job, the new quote was given to me right away to help me make my decision to continue or not. I chose the new quote, there’s no way i would be able to do it on my own. I will be needing movers again soon and will definitely rehire No Limit. I’m glad I made my decision to choose No limit without the words of the other reviews. They must be the type of people you can never please. I run my own company and understand what it’s like having customers like that. Don’t let them keep you from choosing this great company. I know I’ll be back for their services again

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.

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.
