We were moving from our 3 bedroom condo to a 4 bedroom house. The movers were a party of 4 and a truck who showed up exactly on time. They were very prompt and organized. We had packed most of our loose items in boxes. So they mainly had to focus on the big items. All the furniture was handled with care and neatly wrapped in plastic. They also did a good job of neatly assembling all the furniture at our new house. They made sure all the boxes and items were delivered to the correct room. They were quite friendly and acted very professionally. We had a lot of big items and they made sure the move and assembly was completed within a reasonable time. Overall my experience with MGB has been excellent. I would recommend them to any customer looking to make a hassle free move.

These guys had a bad day and thus arrived 2.5 hours late, leaving a very small window of time for moving out of my apartment before it needed to be vacated. But they worked very hard -- Wesley in particular. Their bad luck extended to the next day (one of two movers called in sick) and poor Wesley had to unload the truck into my storage unit all on his own -- all the furniture and stuff from a two-bedroom apartment! Problems aside, he was apologetic, honest, communicative, and worked super-hard to honor our contract.

Tony was great! I was in New York on business and found out last minute that I had to move to a new unit in my building. Tony was great in organizing two movers for that upcoming Saturday. The guys showed up...they were super professional, and did a meticulous job moving my apartment upstairs. Nothing was broken, everything was put in its proper place. At one point I noticed that the floor was scuffed from a piece of furniture. The guys took no time in cleaning the floor, and honestly it looked better than new! What was supposed to be a 3 hour job, lasted only 2 1/2 hours. I HIGHLY recommend Tony and his men for a move!!

Frank is great! Very punctual and prompt , and above all very quick and efficient in completing the work. We had a bed frame that needed to be dis-assembled in one apartment, then moved over to another apartment and then re-assembled. He finished the entire work in less than an hour and also did some additional work like fixing our broken box spring and moving some furniture around. Overall, he exceeded our expectations and was outstanding!

We contacted Larry when my husband had to have foot surgery the week we were moving. Larry gave us a full no nonsense quote. We moved a one bedroom apartment about 20 miles. Larry and his son showed up early and began hustling. They are not afraid to break a sweat!! They moved everything as quickly and efficiently as possible while still being careful with our belongings. Larry and his son were professional and caring with our belongings. They did not "milk the clock" like other movers do. I will be contacting Larry the next time I move and I suggest you do the same!

Mike and two young men who,moved me from one apartment to a larger, nicer Condo were extremely respectful, considerate of my wishes and easy to work with. They tried to honor my time schedule and took their time to do,it right, asking me where each item should be placed. I know so spent more than if friends had moved me, but feel that with the stairs and a few,heavy items they did the best they could and it was well worth the cost.

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.

Working with movers cane be quite stressful especially in terms of finding someone who is effective both when it comes to cost and the actual job itself. We needed to move from our 1 bedroom in North Hollywood to a 2 bedroom in Burbank and they came in and swiftly packed/moved everything in their truck and onto our new place. They were also extremely helpful in scheduling last minute which we appreciated. Mike and Shaw are stand up guys - great to talk and will make the move seem effortless and pain free! Highly recommend Mike and Shaw!!

Just finished a move with these guys today and it was definitely a great experience.   Pre-move: The manager Li kept in constant contact with me to ensure that the appointment time would be correct.  I verified with them 2 days before and the day before to make sure we were still scheduled.  The day of the move which was today, they showed up exactly on time and prepared which was excellent: During Move:  The movers were great.  They came with all the required equiipment to get their job done quickly and efficiently.  They had dolly's, those 4 wheeled cart things, and a bonus blankets with tape to wrap up your valuable furniture.  They wrapped and protected the couches, TV's and mirrors to ensure that they survive the trip.  THey were also very quick to getting things out of my old apartment and into the movers truck, and finally into my new location. Overall, it was a great experience using these guys for your move.  They actual movers were super friendly and not sketch looking which made me a little more comfortable letting them handle my goods.  They defintely made the moving experience, which is already freaking stressful as it is, very simple and Im glad this whole ordeal is over. Thanks Guys!

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.

The experience with Luis at JIT was absolutely wonderful. From the point of initial contact to the concluding 'hug', he was on it. I liked how he constantly communicated with me and actually showed up EXACTLY at the appointed time, with preceding communication. I would recommend him.

Just finished our move with this company and besides a few hiccups with miscommunication through (Chris or Alex the dispatchers or owners, not really sure who I was talking to the whole time) we are pretty pleased. First I chatted back and fourth on Yelp about the price quote and he had scheduled me and never told me what time so I had to call and approve the time since he just assumed his chosen time would work with me and never told me what time it was. Then I made it very clear I needed 30 minute notice before the guys show up, since my stuff was in a storage and I would have to have time to meet them there to let them in. Somehow, even though I had called him multiple times from my cell phone he managed to write it down wrong. Therefore I was not informed the movers were coming until they were there and I called the company and they called them to get the correct number. Anyhow we were VERY VERY PLEASED WITH CYLE AND ELIO as our movers, they were FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT and VERY PROFESSIONAL. They moved some very heavy things of ours with a long walking distance to the upstairs apartment and were really great, I just wish we knew we could have used 3 guys to take some of the load off these two and get it done a bit quicker. Lastly, the company did meet us in the middle and started our time 15 minutes later because of the mishap in the beginning, which saved me 30

I had such a hard time finishing reliable movers. But once I came across this company all my worries went away. I received the best customer service possible. I was quoted an amazing price and they always touched bases with me day before. The day of the move they arrived on time and ready to get the job done. It was literally less than 2 hours I couldn't be more satisfied I would totally hire these guys again !!!!!!!!!!!

Clutter was awesome from start to finish. We used them for a straightforward, A - B move, and the customer service was impeccable from the booking process through to the payment process! Mo made booking a breeze, gave us an accurate quote--and to make things even better, you can reserve your date/time slot in advance and cancel up to 48 hours before your move if necessary! Not a lot of companies allow for that flexibility and it was greatly appreciated. The guys that ran our move were equally as impressive-- Dallas was the lead mover and did a great job explaining the charges and time tracking. Clutter does a stellar job of keeping things as straightforward as possible with no hidden fees or scary add-ons. Both Ralph and Sadiqi were with him to help move our apartment and all three of them were fantastic! Quick, efficient, and polite! Our stuff made it over without a scratch or any issues. Dallas made sure we were aware of a promotion happening at the time and helped facilitate a call with Customer Care to be sure we were charged correctly. Tammy was our customer service rep and she took great care of us. All in all, a really easy process and we couldn't be happier with the results. Thanks guys!

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.

Even in 95+ degrees and close to a quarter mile of truck to door, these guys didn't slow or get down, they just got it done. Thank you Veteran Movers, we were luck to have you getting our backs!

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.
