We ended up having more furniture and items to move. They were really helpful, quick, and even got another person to come help last minute and get the job done efficiently.

Due to illness I was not able to keep up with yardwork, it looked like a jungle. Ociel and his brother Adolfo came out the next day and did an excellent job. I was very happy with what was accomplished. I will most likely use Ociel's services in approximately 2 months for yard upkeep.

Ox Moving Services recently handled my move. This is hard to rate as there were some issues out of their control. Their performance was right there between 4 and 5. The day started an hour late due to a flat tire on their truck. They resolved this issue by renting a truck and communicating to keep me in the loop as to their delay. Andrew had 2 movers call in sick, so he jumped in and covered the move personally. This meant we started an hour late and had only 2 movers rather than 3. Andrew adjusted the hourly rate accordingly. When Andrew arrived I was greeted with a smile and a very upbeat attitude. As the day went on it was clear that Andrew understands moving can be a stressful experience. He goes above and beyond to make the day fun for his clients and employees. They were both very professional. I had the priveledge of having the owner of the company manage my move. I also had the pleasure of seeing him work one on one with an employee. This young man, 17 years old, is very skilled in his profession, What I really enjoyed was watching Andrew as he took every opportunity to compliment his young colleagues work, and to teach him a few new tricks of the trade. They were as respectful of each other as they were of me. I was also impressed as to how they worked with me. I was a participant in my move. The hours were coming out of my pocket. I had to load my own vehicle while they loaded their truck. They never made me feel like I was in their way. They helped me and allowed me to help them as much as I needed for my piece of mind. They managed to accomodate my every need. It was a long day, but a good experience and I have Ox Moving Services to thank for that.

I even changed the day on him last minute since it was going to rain the following day and he didn't blink. They were both very thoughtful about what they were doing and moved my stuff in to the apartment in a timely manner. I am very happy with what they accomplished. I will hire again when I need them. For sure. Very hard workers and conscientious taking care of other people's stuff. I am very impressed.

They did great! I'm very hesitant when it comes to hiring movers but they did not let me down. Quick move that would've taken other larger operations longer to squeeze out more dollars from your wallet. Definitely Recommend hiring!

I contacted Ashley for a last minute deep stove/oven and kitchen cleaning and I was very satisfied. My stove had been neglected for 5 years and her crew brought it back to life on 1 days notice. Great work, I will use her again.

We recently booked a move with A & L Transport last minute due to the fact that the original moving company we had made arrangements never showed or called. I googled them on the internet. Best choice we've done. Excellent company. They wrapped all our furniture in blankets and plastic wrapped the sofas. Got the move done in a timely matter and mo damage to our belongings. Thank you Adrian and crew. wonderful job.

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.
