Excellent movers! Movers were kind, hard working, quick, on time, and even asked for extra ways to help with our remaining time: like setting up beds and taking down boxes. We will use this great company again! Highly recommended!!

The move took a little longer than I had hoped, but I can't blame the movers for that. The apartment complex I moved out of is tedious to move in and out of so I'm not surprised it took a while. The move to the new place was much quicker and easier. The movers did a great job handling my furniture and other items. They listened very well to what I asked and needed. They were courteous and friendly. They also understood where and how I wanted the placement of my furniture. Overall I am satisfied with the move and I'm glad I had good strong men to help me out. Thank you again! Much appreciated!

Angel and Marvin were fantastic; I couldn't have asked for a better crew. These guys were like the Energizer Bunny! Right after they arrived and introduced themselves, they were on the go, communicating with us throughout the process to ensure our belongings made it to the right place (to a no elevator, second floor apartment 20 minutes away, and a storage unit in a separate building). I was also impressed with the level of care they provided our belongings. Our furniture was wrapped in blankets and shrink wrap so everything arrived without a scratch. I'm still not sure how they got our behemoth of a couch up the stairs but they did, and that alone was worth every penny paid. Overall, I was very impressed with Angel and Marvin's professionalism and dedication to making the move a stress-free experience for us. I would hire them again in a heartbeat.

Great experience with Cube Moving! The owner was very responsive in preperation, promptly answering all questions and calls. The gentlemen that showed up for the move were polite, efficient, honest, and did their best to wrap and protect all of our belongings. Upon initial evaluation of our items, they were honest about the estimated time the whole move would take and worked to meet it. They were prompt, took no breaks, hussled, and were the opposite of all the horror stories I have been made to believe about doddling movers intentionally trying to increase time. Great team!

I enjoyed an excellent move with the Royal Movers. They were on-time, dedicated, and careful with all of my precious things. From the boxing and transport of the items to the moving van, the drive to the new address, carrying each piece upstairs and gently placing it in the designated spot; each mover was so professional, kind and caring. I would highly recommend Royal Movers to you. They are a valuable, quality outfit. Please use Royal. They are your neighborhood movers.

The movers called half an hour before arriving, and when they arrived, they were on time, professional, and efficient. A screw in my television was stripped and couldn't be detached. Instead of dismissing the issue, one of the movers was very adament about releasing it from the wall attachment and was successful. There was also damage to a piece of furniture, and Daniel made it a point to come fix it himself, as the damage was not covered by insurance. I'd definitely recommend Reliable Movers!

Dominant Moving Rocks, that is the best movers i have used. We had 3 bedroom 1800 sq ft condo full of furniture, because we moved from bigger house. We packed kitchen and bathroom by ourselves and left furniture wrapping to movers, in order to save money. We had 3 trained movers with a big truck(big enough for our condo). Guys worked fast and hard and most importantly they worked as a team, they knew what they were doing. The covered all my furniture with pads and stretch wrap. Whatever has to be taken apart, they did it with theirs tools. When we arrived to my new place,which is a 2 story house, movers did a walk through. They asked me where i want all my furniture to be placed. Then they put together my beds. Also they provided 10 WardRobe boxes for free, which was super convenient. The whole move took 6.5 hours, and i was more than happy with total amount. It was less than 2 hundreds than i budgeted, so i gave good TIP. Always tip movers, they deserve it much more than servers in restaurant, they work much harder.

Dave was fantastic. He was very punctual and communicated with me the day before we moved to confirm the time, location, and where he should park his truck and trailer for ease of loading. He has every possible dolly and device you could imagine to move an apartment, condo, house, motorcycle, etc. We moved an entire one bedroom apartment within a few hours, and, truthfully, I was very impressed with how quickly and efficiently we were able to finish the job, especially with a steep and narrow flight of stairs involved. Furthermore, I really enjoyed our time together - he is a good man with a friendly demeanour and my wife and I both enjoyed his company while we packed. Even if you think your move requires the services of a larger company with extra hands, I encourage you to give Dave a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised at how capable he is on his own and how quickly he can get the job done, and you'll save a lot of money while supporting a small business owner. Beyond any shadow of a doubt I will hire Dave for my next move and I will gladly refer him to my friends and family, and to you.

Velazquez movers took care of business. They moved my 1920 upright piano from Oceanside to Huntington Beach without a problem. The piano weighed in at over 450 lbs., there wasn't a scratch or ding on it when they completed the job. They did it professionally and at a really good price.

We hired Move Central to move and pack our 4 bedroom house. The movers were on time and they worked really hard to finish the move as fast as they can but at the same time not to damage any of our belongings. We could tell that the movers are experienced and know what they are doing. In general, it was very easy to work with Move Central. I would definitely recommend this company to anyone who needs moving services.

First let me say this has been a very difficult long distance move for myself and my family. Allen & his guys were beyond great and lifted so much weight off our shoulders. The window of pick up was easy and when they delivered our furniture & boxes everything was the same way, no damages or scratches! The guys were friendly, fast & professional. I definitely have recommended Cloud9 Movers to a few people who are in the moving process as well.

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.

These movers are the best of the best our there! Everything from start to finish went as sooth as could be, which was a huge relief to me as I was wrapping up my job and had a ton going on at the end of February when I used Easy Movers to help. Carlos and his crew of 2 movers (in addition to him) were super efficient and clearly knew what they were doing. I loved how they wrapped the chairs, dressers, nightstands, etc. carefully in plastic so they wouldn't deteriorate in the storage unit I moved into. The boxes and furniture I had ready to go went in the truck and right to the storage unit - no time wasted. When we arrived to the storage facility and I couldn't figure out the key lock in my personal unit, they even helped with that, which was extra nice. It's sometimes difficult to weed through moving companies online trying to find ones that aren't overpriced, and I feel like I hit the jackpot with Easy Movers! This is actually the second time I've used them (previous time was August 2013) and will continue to use them again when the need arises without hesitation. They're easy to work with, professional and very experienced. I cannot recommend them enough - they truly made my moving experience hassle-free!

Although the movers were quite a bit later than expected they did do a good job. There were a lot stairs to deal with and the guy were troopers. That’s mainly why a job that would have normally taken 6 hours took closer to 8.

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.
