Mariko W.
Verified review

Earlier this month, MGB Relocations helped with a 350 mile move that required an overnight stay. Mario and his team were very professional and very helpful. He worked with us on and our budget to accommodate our needs. His team brought all the materials needed to disassemble and reassemble furniture as needed, plus covers to protect the mattresses. We had not finished packing when his team arrived (our fault as they were on time) and they were able to plastic wrap some bookshelves with items still in it to make the move even easier. Mario said that his job is to make our move easy and he was true to his word. We appreciate MGB Relocations for helping to make a stressful event go smoothly. I recommend them for any move, whether long distance or local.

They were professional, respectful, accommodating and courteous. They were very aware of the time and my budget and managed it well. There were no hidden charges or extra fees. I had heavy items that had to be moved to an upstairs apartment, navigating narrow entryways and it went off without a hitch or ding :) I would definitely recommend this company and would use them again.

Moving is so stressful,and moving in 100+ degree heat makes it more so. Tony's drivers were so amazing, they took care of everything and kept our spirits up, by staying positive and keeping us laughing. I would recommend them for anyone looking for amazing movers in So Cal.

You know how everyone "hates moving companies?" You won't hate this one. From the moment I requested a quote to the second they shook my hand as they left my new house, 5 Star was above board, honest, and totally professional. I gave them my budget and they worked within it, and my stuff arrived in excellent condition. Will definitely use them again and tell everyone I know how great they are!

Aleks is like a real-life super hero. I was stuck on a flight when my new couch was delivered. The delivery guys left it on my patio while I was flying, so I needed a seriously strong team to get it upstairs and into my home that night before it got stolen or rained on. Aleks and his moving partner saved the day! They showed up within a few hours, brought blankets to protect my stair rail, and carefully hauled it up—no sweat! I imagine a lot of other movers would have walked away because it was a tricky space to maneuver and it was around 9 pm—when most people would rather be done for the day! These guys are seriously strong, no-nonsense, and focused! They also assembled a pesky table for me, cleaned up, and were friendly, polite, and professional in the process. They didn’t rush or get annoyed or frustrated. They simply got it done despite the time and were very nice from start to finish! Thanks, Alecks and Roman! You’re amazing!

Wow!!! Brett made this super easy and fast. Within a few minutes of putting my request into Thumbtack, he provided me with a price and we set everything up. He showed up promptly at the time we had specified, and he was in and out in a flash! Thanks, Brett, for getting rid of my old couch and chair!!

I hired Mike & Shaw based on their responsiveness to initial inquiry (and follow-up) and value (though slightly higher than others in consideration). What sealed the deal was their knowledge of moving a piano that did not require them to ask me about the weight, how many men would be needed and charging an additional hourly rate just to move the piano. Marie was amazing as the scheduling of the move was last minute and encountered obstacles on both our ends on two different days. Yet, they were committed to making it happen and the third day scheduled was the charm. While I moved from a 3 bedroom townhouse to a 5 bedroom home, I pared down what was moved to 1 bedroom of furniture, kitchen table/chairs, desk, piano, tv stand and end table along with boxes; the latter I requested all be put into the garage. My hope was this would be done within 4 hours as I was on a tight budget but it took an additional 2 hours beyond my expectation. Nontheless, the job was done to completion. Mike spent additional 15-20 minutes off clock trying to secure the footboard of my bed that was loose due age, wear and tear, and no doubt previous 4 moves of assemble and reassemble during the 12 years of ownership. Thanks!

These guys were the best. I reached out to them last minute and they responded very quickly. Three guys helped move from my place downstairs, up a narrow and tricky staircase upstairs. They handled all of my furniture with extreme care and worked very quickly, they finished in half an hour. At the end, they charged me $40 which is such a great deal considering all the furniture they moved and how heavy everything was.

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.

Moober moving company does it all!!! Me and my wife were moving from our 3 bedroom home to another beautiful home in Malibu. They came on time which was a 8:30 am on a Sunday.( All my other movers I have choose In the past never showed up at that time!!!!)Moober has great customer service, they came in told them everything I needed to be moved and was going in the truck. That was it they did everything with safety and teamwork. All my furniture was professionally wrapped and put in the truck like Tetris!! Hahah. Moober company moves everything and anything. I have a real heavy Grand Piano and they were able to take it outside wrap it and fit it in truck with no problem. I thought the packing process was fast, but they proved me wrong when they unloaded everything and put it exactly how I wanted. Moober moving company is a great moving company and the best I dealt with. Thank you EJ!!!!!!!!!!!!

Alex and company are amazing! We were being strung along by our big-name moving company, and needed to be in Missouri to start a new job. After yet another delay, and yet another "guarantee", we were desperate and found AmerApex Moving. Alex contacted us on a Monday and by Thursday, they were there! They were absolute lifesavers, and did everything they could to take care of our belongings and make us feel at ease. And then they were in Missouri by Saturday to unload everything in our new house! On top of that, they are incredibly friendly and made a stressful situation feel much lighter. We can't thank Alex enough, and wish every moving company out there could be half as professional and effective as his!

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 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.

How much does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving 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. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.
