WOW is the best word I can use to describe my experience with MGB movers. Mario and his crew were careful with all our furniture and powered through one of the hottest days of the year so far. I would not hesitate to recommend them for a move--big or small. We couldn't be more pleased.

In preparation for our move, Wesley was prompt to respond to my questions. On moving day, the team if 2 movers were on time, friendly and professional. The price was right and service was perfect. I recommend Shift It Moving to anyone searching for movers.

I received two reminder calls: one the day before and the second when the truck was en route. Very reassuring for someone in the middle of juggling a move. The truck arrived 30 minutes early (not late). The two gentlemen were polite and friendly. I appreciate the free wrapping of all my furniture. The only reason for 4/5 stars is that one couch leg was broken (I think it's salvageable but it will require some attention). Would use movers again. Also, the price was just right (and I shopped around).

Frank responded to my request right away. I chose Frank due to his proximity to me and his lower cost compared to other movers. After seeing how hard he worked and the care he took to make sure nothing was damaged, we were happy to pay him more than he asked. He is friendly, a bit chatty (but likeable), professional and he worked hard. Then he drove our large recycle items to the recycle center for us. We would definitely hire Frank again.

I had an excellent experience. The company replied to my Thumbtack request immediately. They also communicated well through email and text messages as we got closer to the date. The movers were quick and professional. The movers also removed a curtain rod and put one up at the move-in location. I was extremely pleased with this company!

I would highly recommend Larry's Quality Moving! Larry was extremely responsive and professional in his work. I appreciate that he took proper care and handled my belongings with respect rather than carelessly throw them around as most movers do. Larry was also very honest in his pricing- upon completion, the total for my move ended up being less than what he had originally quoted me, so he gave me the lower/correct rate instead of trying to bend the rules and overcharge me! Thanks again, Larry!

What a great experience it was having 5 Star Movers work with us. They worked their butts off and everything was perfect clean and nothing was damaged or scratched. Everything about our moving experience with these guys was positive and most importantly for us : painless and stress-free. We will be using them for another big move for my family in couple of months.

He moved a large, heavy credenza. It was turned down by 3 charitable organizations that wasted my time by assuring me on the phone it would be removed, but each time their movers rejected it. Brett is careful, professional and pleasant.

We had our floors refinished and needed to move furniture out of a few rooms into another room. I got many quotes that were expensive for this type of job. PTM Movers were reasonable and helpful. Dave is super-responsive and got back to me right away. The guys showed up on time and did the job very well. We're having them come back to move everything back into place. If you need a mover you can rely on, give PTM a call!

Honestly I would recommend these guys over and over again. I called them with a 24 hour notice of moving a 1bdr and they were the only moving company to be able to accommodate my needs. I had Edward and Sergei as my movers and these guys were professional, friendly and hard working and made this whole stressful situation into a more relaxing experience. They handled my belongings with great care and took the time to make sure I understood all that was being done.

I called around for movers to help me with a Sunday move. I decided to go with New Life Moving because they had affordable/fair pricing and easy booking. I also liked how they didn't have hidden fees and charge a ton of extras. They do have a 3 hour minimum but I think that's pretty standard if you call around. It ended up taking around 4 hours and 15 minutes for the entire job. When it came to moving day, the movers had called me when they were on their way to the house. We had the pleasure to work with Abel and Eugene. Both guys were professional and hard-working. I have a thing for efficiency and they were working at a nice pace and were extra careful with our furniture/personal items. They wrapped up the furniture to make sure they wouldn't get scuffed/damaged and also had some boxes for us to use for our clothes. The truck that they came with was very large and we probably didn't even fill half of it. They packed up our smaller boxed items into a larger box they had as well. We had an extra stop for a pickup before our final drop-off and they were very helpful during it since it was a bit more difficult with the maneuvering and messy space. Abel and Eugene had good attitudes the whole time and didn't take any breaks. They were kind and very easy to work with. We definitely would use them again in the future. Fair pricing, efficient, professional and easy!

Our trip was from Irvine to Lake Elisnore. Both of the movers (Edward and Adrian) went above and beyond to make sure all items were packed safely. So far we are on the 2nd day of unpacking and nothing has been broken or scratched. These guys worked really hard to protect our furniture and boxed items, almost 85% of the boxes were marked fragile items, plus some of the items were really heavy to load. We really appreciated their help and we would highly recommend them. Thanks again! CF.

I was only moving a couple of miles and needed movers for my furniture and other large items. I looked up for movers in my area and they came up so I gave them a call. Felix was very professional over the phone and it sounds like he had lots of experience, so I gave them a shot. Samuel and Enrique arrived in the time window I was given and called me 30 minutes ahead of time to give me an ETA. Both of them were friendly, professional and on task. And they surprised me by being right on within the time window I was told I'd be charged by Felix in my original call. In short, I couldn't be happier. I will definitely use them in the future and I'll be recommending them highly to anyone who needs movers.

My movers just left and requested a review as quickly as possible. I assured them that I would provide then with a 9 out of 5 star rating. Most importantly, the young men were respectful to my husband and I. I am 67 years old so I was on the young men from start to finish - making sure they were respectful of my belongings and home. They wrapped all of my furniture and assisting with packing items that were not packed upon their arrival. I did notice a small hole in the wall at the pick up address. Tight corners so I did not complain. But I did want them to know that I noticed. Other than that, my belongings arrived in great shape. I will recommend to my friend Margaret who will be moving in about 2 weeks. I informed her to request Mark and Stephen. Thanks again for your hard work. Spend your tip wisely.

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.
