You might think that unloading is just the transfer of your possessions from one place to another, but it is much more than that. Between caring for fragile items and making sure you don't accidentally injure yourself, many people find it is most logical to hire the pros to take care of the most backbreaking aspects of the moving process. There are many health issues that can arise out of failing to hire unloading help. Professionals have been trained to lift things correctly, so it is best to leave it to the pros. Your knees are very fragile and are at particular risk when you move. Many people find in their older years that their failure to take safety precautions causes them long-term pain. Not only can you avoid pain, but you can also relieve the burden from your shoulders by hiring a professional for assistance with unloading. With each handling of your valuable possessions, you run the risk of breaking something. If you are not trained in unloading, you could inadvertently break a precious family heirloom. Unloading of the moving van usually happens at the end of the day which means homeowners are even more likely to lose their heads when they've become frazzled later on. Unless you are completely skilled at unloading and carrying heavy loads, along with all of the necessary safety measures that come with it, it is recommended that you trust a professional to unload during your move. Sit back and relax while you leave the backbreaking labor to those who are trained to handle it better. Save your back and your breakable valuables with expert help.

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.
