Movers were punctual and very professional. The rates were great compared to other quotes. I am very meticulous with my furniture, I noticed after the movers left that some of my furniture and walls got a few scratches. Hence I am giving them 4 stars, but overall, I am very satisfied with their work.

I needed help moving into my new house. They responded quickly and had an affordable price. They showed up right on time and didn't hesitate to start clearing out my apartment. Moved everything in exactly where I wanted and even set up my bed. They took no time at all to move me in. I couldn't have asked for a better movers. I will definitely use again for future moves.

These guys were beyond awesome! We hired them to move items from an on-site storage pod to our second-floor apartment. Our storage company ended up delivering the pod to our apartment complex over 2 hours late and we were terrified that the last minute change would mean that our movers wouldn't be able to make it. Michael at Globe told us not to worry and made time to do the move at no extra charge. He and the other mover were punctual, courteous, and very professional. They took great care of our stuff! We already plan on hiring these guys for the next time we move.

Movers were right on time. All things were moved with out any issues or damage to my furniture. They arranged the big pieces as I requested and were open to me having them arrange it in different ways until I was satisfied. They completed all work within the time allowed and were friendly the entire time,

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!

I sent out a request for a pool table mover to travel to West Hollywood, pick up a table and bring it back to San Diego where it was to be reassembled. Cris responded quickly and was able to do the job for us. The price of the move seemed more than reasonable for the time spent on the road and assembling the table. Cris was precise and detail oriented. He was also very accommodating when I had to reschedule late the evening before. Would highly recommend their services and will call them again when we need any servicing.

Two movers arrived on time to move our two bedroom 700 square foot apartment. The move was within 10 miles. The movers were very polite, extremely quick packing up and unloading the truck, and efficient. My only complaint was a slight ding on my bedroom dresser, however the movers are the ones who pointed it out and they ended up giving a very small discount towards our move since their insurance would not cover the ding.

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.

Great move, good guys, fast and helpful. They didn't damage or lose any of our stuff and were willing to take direction with where we wanted things to go in the new place. They even re-positioned a couple of giant desks for us that we erred on when we first asked the movers to place them. (Sorry Winston, but thanks for being a champ and not getting upset with our indecision!) Winston, Miles, and Junior helped us. Would use them again for sure. Thanks 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.
