Luiz and his partner showed up on time and carefully packed my 3rd floor, 2-bedroom apartment into a 16' moving truck. I drove the truck 400 miles and nothing was damaged during transport. They did an amazing packing job and were very careful with my things. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

Angel, Leonardo and Cody were super professional, on time and personable. It made moving day a lot less stressful and it felt more like friends helping us move than just a moving company. Thank you so much guys for braving the many staircases with a smile! And thank you Ron for setting us up with the best of the best.

Working with MovingWithLove moving company was an absolute pleasure. I had a serious problem I needed to solve, which required that I find a mover within a 24 hour period, and that the mover would work with me remotely (the move in San Diego while I was out of state). Not only did MWL respond to my SOS request through Thumbtack immediately, they then made room for me in their schedule the very next day, worked with me to find the most economical way to make our move, and then showed up spot-on-time and just got to work. I’ll always be grateful to this crew for the kindness and professionalism they exhibited through their flexibility and good will. I needed help, and MovingWithLove provided the personal and professional integrity I could trust.

I had to say, Angel and Jacob (the pop star ;p) serve the best moving service! Our story is a bit complicated...we actually was scheduled with another mover originally and guess what, they called cancel the day before our moving day! Unbelievable isn't it! They told us on Friday that they were "too busy" to move us on Saturday. So we were like, WTF?! How are we gonna find a mover in such a short notice, not to mention good rate & service...we tried to call several movers and of course nobody was able to do it in less than 24 h notice. We were in a desperate place when we called Flash Mover...and...here comes Angel for the rescue! He was like, don't worry we'll be there 8am tomorrow morning with all your needs. He was extremely clear about explaining every detail of the cost in the phone and also sent an email right away. And they were at our place 8am on Saturday right on time with full packs of any tool you would imaging for moving. Angel went over the cost details and the paper work with us again, then they started working. We were very much impressed again in 5 min after they started working. They are extremely professional. By professional I meant, very careful, very efficient, very cognitive about the path, make decisions fast and correctly. They wrapped our furniture so well like rocks cannot damage them. Our stairway is tricky for anyone to move, and they nailed it like a piece of cake. Not only this. We were in a rush when we did the quote with them on Friday that we didn't mention we'll have to stop at 2 places to pick up furniture. When we told them on Saturday morning Angel accommodated our needs right away. He modified the cost details on site on paperwork with clear explanation. They followed us for the two stops and wrapped the furniture carefully. When we reached the house they asked our opinion where we want everything go. They unload, unwrapped, and placed every piece of stuff right at the spot and direction we want it to go. The whole process, from our home to the two stops to destination took only 3 hours. AMAZING. They treat us like people not money. They think the customer thinks. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!! Thank you so much Angel and Jacob! Our new home will remember your service :)

Using Cube Moving was very simple and fast. I called about 2 weeks prior to my move, and I did not have a "moving to" location yet as I am putting my things into storage, and hadn't secured a place yet. I called Cube and explained my situation--it was absolutely no problem. The day arrived for the movers to come--they were a few minutes late, but had called about 20 minutes prior to the agreed time to let me know they would be late...honestly I did not even consider a few minutes past, late. However, still very courteous to call and I appreciated their promptness. I was moving a one-bedroom, and 2 young guys came, I believe their names were Andre and Johan. They were very friendly, and most importantly thorough yet efficient. The entire move from my home to my storage unit (which was about 6 mi from my home) took 3 hours almost to the dot. Because most companies make you pay a 3 hour minimum anyways, I paid exactly what was quoted for me. Also because I used yelp, I was able to use a $20 discount being offered on yelp at the time. The price was excellent, service was excellent, and I felt my furniture was safe in their hands! Thanks guys!! You were awesome!

I used Thumbtack to connect with SD Royal Movers. They gave me a flat quote for the 6 furniture items, no extra fees for mileage/fuel. While other companies were requiring a 2-3hr minimum. They were easy to work with from the beginning. On moving day I had Edber and Hector. They were efficient and careful with my items. They were friendly communicators and I appreciated when they would confirm where I liked the furniture placed. I will definitely use their services again.

I used Michaelson Moving to move a new mattress & foundation into my master bedroom from the garage. The foundation is a motorized unit that is extremely heavy and then needed some assembly. They were very nice and respectful of my home. They had to decipher the assembly a little, and were very patient. Once the job was finished, Michael made sure that the box trash was cleaned up and that all of the spare parts were organized & left in an orderly manner. He even helped me set up the remote control to an app on my phone through Bluetooth. It was clear that Michael and his son take pride in their business and strive to do their best for their customers. Now, I just can't wait to try out my new bed! :)

Last month i had to move my home and i went online again to search for affordable moving services in Carlsbad and San Diego to get a ballpark idea of what is would cost to hire moving company. I asked for a quote through the Thumbtack. A couple years ago i used Dominant Moving but i was hoping to find something cheaper. Their pricing was higher but they gave me returned customer discount. I did not hesitate and decided to hire Dominant Movers again.  At the moving day our movers were Vlad, Jose and Marvin. Very punctual, friendly guys that worked non stop for about 6 hours. They took a great care of all our furniture. Dominant Movers are best movers in San Diego. I will be calling you again. Thanks for your service.

My originally planned movers did not show up and Hector with Vazquez moving was able to put together a crew to move me into my home at the last minute. The crew was meticulous in protecting my belongings and were very careful not to damage my home moving out and moving in. Mosley is a great crew lead and you'll be lucky to have them manage your move. I would recommend them ... they are good people and did a great job!

Artur, Pocket, and Gregory (in training) helped me with my move. Very friendly and professional. They arrived on time and got to work right away while Artur went over the paperwork with me. I've never used movers before (usually do it myself with friends) so wasn't sure what to expect. They were very professional and right away felt secure in that they knew what they were doing. They carefully wrapped all my furniture and loaded all my belongings. Most of my stuff is IKEA and they usually don't survive traveling and moving very well but everything made it in one piece without any damage. They did note to me that since it was IKEA that they current guarantee and I appreciated them letting me know that upfront. But it all went well which was a relief. Anything that I needed to know I was well informed of. Even before the move I was emailed a confirmation along with documentation so I knew what to expect on the day of the move. Artur was very thorough in explaining everything as well as answering any questions that I had. They quoted a very fair price as well as a fair "not to exceed" quote on the day of which we were well within. It was a 1 BR 350 sqft move into a 2 BR 900 sqft and took about 3 hours minus the drive time. It took a bit longer than expected because they took extra care with my furniture which I completely understood and appreciated. They placed everything where I wanted it and did a good job of cleaning up (packing materials) afterwards. If I ever need to move again I will definitely keep them in mind and would recommend. Thanks Grizzlies!!!

Nancy and her team were exceptional. Her vision and follow thru was superb. I was hesitant to stage my house initially. Selling my home in 6 days, 20k over the asking price makes me know I made a great decision! I'm a total believer of Nancy and her skills.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
