Jiri in the office quoted 2 men for $80 an hour, or 3 men for $105 an hour. I gave Jiri explicit information and asked for an estimate on what he thought the final cost would be. Jiri said because of afternoon traffic, it could cost between $250 and $300. It took 2 hours, the men worked fast, wasted no time and worked quickly and professionally. However, Jiri charged $300 for the job anyway. Not the 2 men at $80 or $160 total quote. I paid the men $240, because they were good and it was not their fault but it was Jiri in the office I had the problem with. Plus, at this point, I was then told there was a $240 minimum. First I heard of that, and it should have mentioned before and been put in writing. I have my notes, no, never mentioned that. The men told me to take it up with Jiri. I was ready to give them a big tip but by then I was frustrated and annoyed. Not my first rodeo, Jiri. I've moved before. You don't get away with that. Stick to the quote, don't give an estimate of the job that is inflated and then try to stick to that, and if there is a minimum, put that in writing on the quote. Or was it possibly just a misunderstanding? In that case, you owe me $80.

The movers were highly professional and finished moving my 2 bed apartment after 4 hours only. I really liked how they assembled my furniture at the new house. The only thing I disliked is that the manager told me that I will pay a fixed price for the travel fee of 120$ and after the movers were on there way I discovered that I also need to pay for the way from the apt to the new house an additional 50$

Professional, friendly and understanding- the pod arrived late and they wanted to pick the pod up early so the movers had to work quickly and they did!

Steve the owner was great with his communication. They were fast, careful and efficient. Only thing I would recommend is if that British guy (one of the movers) would be nicer and more courteous. He was not that nice. Steve and the other guy was very accommodating and nice.

Had to move Joerns hospital bed from San Jose to Mtn View .Movers were on time and Friendly. They took direction well and delivered this heavy bed without any problems. I give them five stars because they were early in the time window and didn't waste any of my time. I will call Scott again.

I would not recommend this company what so ever. My movers were incredibly unprofessional, rude to staff, rude to me, and were the absolute worst movers I have ever dealt with before. One mover yelled at the woman running the storage unit I was moving things from, and did not pack my items properly in their budget truck. They broke two pieces of my furniture and my rug is missing. I had to call the cops on them since they were holding my furniture hostage after I said I would complain about the broken furniture. After that, the mover was rude the whole time and called me names/got up in my face and was very confrontational. Trust me, never use this company.

My original movers cancelled on us the day we were set to move. I called D&J moving that morning and they were at the house within 2 hours. Very responsive and saved the day! They were quick and meticulous about the job. Great people to work with. I would highly recommend them for any of your moving needs.

We were so grateful and happy with our furniture movers. They understand how to pack a trailer and move the items in a timely efficient manner. all of us at one time or another have injured our backs moving something. These guys were worth every penny they charged and we were thrilled to tip them above and beyond!!

We had a particularly challenging move, getting a washing machine out of a basement where the machine barely fit through the doorway and stairwell. The Leclair movers were careful to pad the glass portion of the washer to protect it and were persistent and found a way to get the washer out.

I have moved many times and always something went wrong, and Silicon Valley Luxury Moving delivered the most professional service I've ever seen. The movers were quick and extra careful wrapping my furniture and getting it moved through our narrow doorways and taking it upstrairs at our new townhouse. Everything was placed where we told them and nothing was damaged or even scratched. They used their equipment to get it done fast, so they finished even before the estimated time. These guys are providing excellent services for very competitive price. I will definitely recommend this moving company to all my friends and will use them for my future moves! Our movers were Bogdan and Sergey, thank you guys for the great job!

I hired MP Movers (Marquiz) to assemble a 6 drawer IKEA dresser. He arrived right on time and was very polite. The dresser came in 3 different boxes which had to be moved downstairs to my daughter's room, which he did for me. He was so conscientious that at one point the instructions didn't match the materials and he brought this to my attention. He quoted me a flat fee and stuck to that. All in all, I couldn't have been happier and I will definitely hire MP Movers again. I highly recommend Marquiz and MP Movers.

These guys were very friendly and helpful. The moved our junk out very quickly. It was a bit pricey when you compare value to all the work our apartment movers did for us recently, but it was worth it because they came at short notice even though they'd clearly had a long day. Would recommend them to others.

I would highly recommend this company. I had a great experience with this moving company. There punctuality and professionalism made my moving experience a breeze. From the moving appointment to the moving day we had great communication. The prices are extremely fair and worth everypenny. They’re costomer service was amazing.

They moved an impossible gigantic and extremely heavy piece of furniture thru a small doorway and sharp turns in a tiny area any up L steps to my second floor den. I was told it couldn't be done before these guys came along! I really can't believe they did it. They were the nicest guys. I put in my request at the last minute too. I would highly recommend. Good price too.

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
