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!!

If you are looking for the best professional and quality movers, then seriously look no further!! I hired Joel and his movers last minute because my other movers cancelled on me (and now I am glad they did). Although it was a bit hectic trying to find someone so last second, Joel made the process stress-free and he was very easy to communicate with. Joel and his movers showed up early and got to work quickly. I highly recommend them and I look forward to hiring them again for my future moves.

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!

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.

I hired 3 movers with reasonable rate. They came on time. Max and other two movers are very kind. Actually I felt working with my old friends. They made me very comfortable and relaxed during moving. They know what customer wants. they are really professional movers. I recommend Credo Moving very strongly. Thanks! Max

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!

The Clean Move did a great job. We have an unusually heavy stand-up piano that needed to go up a flight of stairs. Joseph's team moved it up and put in place without an issue. He was far more reasonably priced than all the other movers. I highly recommend them.

They are a 5 star team, I recently moved into a new apartment and is my first time out on my own, and my sister told me to use movers. I could not be more happy with husky moving and storage. Eric and Vladi helped me out with the move and were great. I could not have done it with out them they made it look simple and clearly they know what they are doing.

I had a great experience with Moving on Moving Company. They were very flexible in working with my schedule and were able to work me in when I needed them to. Jacqueline came out and assessed my belongings which none of the other movers did, and that made me feel like they knew what they were doing from the start. The guys were great, very professional, friendly, and hard workers. I am planning to use them 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.
