MGB was perfect! They came and did everything they said they would fast and efficiently. Not once did we feel stressed about the move. Mario and his team were kind and nothing but smiles despite how hard they were clearly working. We will definitely use MGB for all of our future moves.

Our movers were great. They communicated with me before the move to make sure they brought everything they would need for our move. They were running 15 minutes late on the day of the move, but gave us a heads up. The two movers were efficient, worked hard and got the job done well. They were also pleasant and in good spirits the whole time which made moving day a little more tolerable. Thank you!

Just finished with the movers. Great experience! I haven't moved in 21 yrs. Forgot what a hassle it is. Thanks to Tony for responding so quickly. The guys he sent me were great. Doug and Chris did a fantastic job moving my mom's antique furniture . They were very patient, especially when we ran into a "snag" & the street i was moving to was closed off. Great service and well priced. Would highly recommend Tony and his crew. Thanks guys! Will definitely use them again. <3 D

Lucky was prompt in answering my request. Explaining his services and price, he was very thorough and polite. His movers were timely, courteous, and professional. The move went smoothly. What more could I ask? I would use them again. Thanks, Lucky.

Moving went smoothly and great! Both guys were friendly and efficient. The only hiccup was with the start time. The movers thought we were starting at 7am, but it was scheduled for 9am. I rushed to my old apartment since they were already there, and didn't want them to have to wait or reschedule. Maybe a confirmation call the night before versus the day of so there's no confusion?

The entire experience was flawless. The two movers that came to help were clean and very helpful. They made sure all the glass was wrapped and ensured that all furniture was strapped in truck. They moved us as though they were moving their own items. I would recommend them without thought. Thanks for the experience from the Admin person Garina to the two men that moved us. Moving is usually not a good experience but you all made it much better.

They did an awesome job!!! I’ve hired a few movers before and they were the only ones who have been on time. They moved a 6 foot long couch for me over 10 miles and only took about an hour. Would definitely hire again!

I hired Muscle Movers to move an upright piano. They had a competitive and reasonable price for a quick but difficult job. I noticed immediately how professional and courteous Christopher was over the phone and decided to hire them. The day of the move, they arrived 15 minutes early and completed the job quickly yet carefully. I would hire Muscle Movers again and will also recommend them to anyone that needs a great moving company.

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.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

Moving is SO stressful! I've moved over 5 times in the last 10 years for jobs and have hired movers each time, so I have some experience. Top Notch was the only one (on this current Thumbtack project) who asked to come get an estimate first which I thought was smart for both of us. The estimate came via email about an hour after he left. Paul arrived right on time for both the estimate and the move. He showed up with 2 super strong and super friendly guys who worked really fast! The whole thing was done in under 4 hours, both load and unload and the total was less than the estimate. They even moved our super heavy pull-out couch up and down stairs! All those details - punctuality, estimate, value and professionalism - made the move much less stressful for me. I also liked they all had a great sense of humor. Super impressed and would hire them again in an instant.

I needed to move and didn’t want to go through with it on my own so I decided to hire movers. PTM did the job well and got me out of my place and in a new one in no time and no hassle. I’d call them again though I hope I don’t have to move again, any time soon. Great service.

Our first movers decided not to show up today and we scrambled together and posted on Thumbtack. These guys responded right away and let us know they were just finishing a job then could come right over. It took 5.5 hours to move but they were very professional and wrapped all of our big items and moved our stuff carefully. Thank you for your help. Hire these guys.

This company is SO GREAT!!! I really didn't believe a service like this could exsist! It does!!! They were very punctual,nice,friendly informative. On time. Very resourceful. Clean uniformed and accurate. Everything about this company screams 5! My customer service representative "Wally" was so patient with me. He explained every detail to me,he answered all my questions as many times as I asked them. When the movers Jared and Greg showed up they were so nice. They were calm and did not seem in rush. They handled my items with experience. They talked to us the whole time my son really enjoyed talking to Jared about football,basketball and moving furniture stories. Clutter.com made a would have been stressful situation a cool breeze. Thank you!!! I can't wait to reschedule my relocation move!

We’ve moved a lot and have never used movers ... mainly because we have six sons and I have Scottish (frugal) husband. But with this move I decided to look into movers. I use thumbtack for the first time and was connected with DOWNTOWN MOVERS. They responded immediately, offered a competitive rate, and worked with me on scheduling. JOE and ADAM arrived and were absolutely amazing! I can’t say enough positive things about these two. I will never move without them again! I highly recommend this company for anyone doing any kind of move.

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.
