Summary: 1 bedroom move, SF to Walnut creek, total move time: 3 hrs + .5 hr return to bay bridge. Total cost: 377.50 (tip not included) I needed my one bedroom moved from SF to Walnut Creek. Items to be moved were: 1x bookshelf 2x 3-drawer dressers 1x standing desk 1x small dinner table 4x chairs 1x recliner 1x dresser 5x moving boxes 1x nightstand They were super flexible. Unbeknownst to me, my apartment has weekday moving hours starting at 10, and the movers were supposed to arrive between 9 and 10. When they arrived at 9:20, I explained that we would not have usage of the parking spot, or the elevator. They double parked on the street, laying out safety cones, and got started, using the stairs and moving items via elevator when necessary. The van was packed by 10:40, and on its way to Walnut Creek. After we arrived at ~11:15 (they arrived at the same time I did, no dallying), the unload took another 50 minutes or so, and we were done. Total charges: 3 hrs x $85 moving .5 hrs x $85 return trip $80 travel fee $377.50 total + additional tip. I expected only 3 hours, so it was a little more expensive than I had been hoping to pay (I didn't know movers wrapped things), but their flexibility and efficiency was worth it. I would hire Larro's again.

Santos and his team of movers Jorge and Miguel went above and beyond to work with me. After first having gone a different direction originally AND even after a couple reschedules, Santos was extremely flexible with his availability and willing to work with us. His team was quick and efficient despite three flights and no elevators!!! They were upfront about all their costs and it was all very straightforward with no hidden stairs fees or additional gas fees! We were less than 10 miles from point A to point B and they even didn't charge me double drive time like other movers had quoted me. I would highly recommend Two Friends Movers to anyone I know for their moving needs.

We had to move out from apartment to self-storage, we looked at various movers in ThumbTack, I have never been so happier with the choice. These guys are friendly. Edger is very nice guy. I was delighted by the over all experience, it's complete opposite to my past experience. I can say this with no doubt, that these are the best movers so far. We never expected our move to be so easy. They showed right on time, and went right to work. They planned pretty good and arranged the furniture in order and stuffed blankets between furniture in the trucks. Their trucks and equipment is well maintained and clean. Guys were really professional. They were prepared to sort through a mess - I had gotten organized, and they were happy to get moving as fast as possible. Moving is very stressful, it's very important to find good movers. I'll confidently recommend MEAA movers.

Hands down the best movers we have ever had (and we move a lot... 4 times in the last 2 years)They were on time, they are fully equipped to move all kinds of things. They have blankets and wardrobe boxes to use. They also come equipped with every kind of tools to disassemble and reassemble. They kept all the hardware and pieces together and use tie straps to keep everything secure in the truck. Very professional! We moved from San Ramon to Redwood City and had the best experience with Albion movers! They were very efficient and worked great as a team! We will be using them again in the future and I would highly recommend!!!

We had a lot of stuff to move and we were like deer in the headlights. Scott came over to give us an estimate and also gave us a lot of tips and guidance on how to get going. A Pro Tip from Scott; plan early and call him early! We did a lot of packing ourselves, but Scott can also provide packers to make your job easier! (I wish I knew this earlier, it would have saved my back!) On the day of the move, Thomas and Shane showed up on time and began to move us. Those guys were the most professional and friendly people you would ever want to work with. They made the whole tedious task a lot easier for us to deal with. When they got to our storage place, they carefully arranged our stuff to maximize the space. Scott said he was trying to see if we could avoid getting another storage space (we had a LOT of stuff!) I enthusiastically recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I look forward to using him and his crew to move from storage to our new home.

George and his team were rockstars! They arrived within the time they had arranged with me and called before to let me know they were close. They got started immediately and had our two bedroom apartment emptied within 2 1/2 hours (packing, wrapping, loading) not to mention we were moving out of a narrow SF apartment with a long flight of stairs. They were very careful with all of the furniture and didn't rush the job. Once we arrived at the new house they started unloading right away! The new apartment was up two flights of stairs and they worked to bring all our items in quickly and asked me for directions for all the pieces (which room I wanted things to go into). Granted my boyfriend and I had prepared a lot of the packing before the movers arrived but we wanted to save $ and the job was complete in exactly 4 hours. Totally worth it and will recommend Smart Move SF to friends!

I hired their moving and handyman service when my movers cancelled in a last min. Harp and his team came with 4 movers and truck. They moved my heavy antique armoire, very heavy Marbel dinning tanks top and pianos from 6th floor apt to my 3rd floor unit. They also helped in mounting Tv and shelves at new place. Highly professional and they know what are they doing.

This was my first time trying to hire a professional via Thumbtack platform and it was a very good experience. After submiting the request, I received 3 quotes from different movers, and Pavel was one of them. He stood out among the three because of his responsiveness and reasonable price. Before hiring him, I was a bit concerned given that he had only one review before. But Im glad that I decided to hire him. Pavel was very careful with my stuffs, especially my computer (they also provided a small blanket to cover my table top) He was flexible as well when I asked him if he could stop by Ikea and Living Spaces store for me to pick up some furniture. Overall, I give Pavel and his crew 5 stars for their professionalism. I'll definitely contact him again for future move

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

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 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.

I had Drew's team move contents out of two separate storage units 2 miles apart and then drive them across the bay to my new home. They were so efficient that it took less than two hours to clean out both units entirely, drive to Contra Costa County, and unload everything in under 2 hours. I'd absolutely hire these guys again.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
