Wow, from their first phone call to me, to leaving my new house... this company was amazing! We had a very stressful move out / move in situation due to EXTREMELY tight time lines of closing two homes at the same time. Lenders, escrows, buyers, sellers.... everyone had there own agenda and timeline and wouldn't budge - so THESE GUYS STEPPED IT UP! 1st off, they sent over 2 trucks and 4 guys. 2nd, they came early - time was of the essence! We had just a few hours to load a HUGE house before a termite company was coming to tent the house. These guys were on it! Then the unloaded and put furniture together at our new house. It's been a week, and I have yet to find anything broken! :) Everyone was very nice, pleasant, helpful, personable, and far exceeded any experience I've had with moving companies. They bent over backwards for us! Did I mention that out of 6 quotes, they were also the best priced?!?! Amazing! I'd say they have a client for life with us, but I'm hoping to never move again! haha. But I will recommend them to everyone I know that does move!!!!

Our move was going to be a complicated one, and while moving is never desirable, I knew this undertaking could not be done alone. Globe was the second quote received, with a lower quote than most. I was rather skeptical and wanted to know if there were any additional cost. No additional cost :) Globe representative, Michael and I spoke via email, and telephone to arrange a day to receive an on-site quote. He came out to my home to make an evaluation, and recommend the number of movers for the size of the house. He recommended 4, I felt only 3 were needed. He did not pressure my decision to have 3 instead of 4. He contacted me the day before the move to confirm the appointment. His crew of three movers came, did a walk through and discussed a plan. They were very efficient in moving us. They were conscientious, very courteous, and made life easier for us. I also liked that Michael and I spoke throughout the day on progress that was being made and he wanted to make sure that we were satisfied thus far. This was very important to me to have contact with the person who I originally met. Thanks to Globe Moving Group, our move was a success. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a professional moving company. They are truly hard workers and well worth the money.

I had several gym equipment to move from garage to a room. Since these were large, the job Required taking apart, moving, then putting them together. Most moving companies would not even consider the job, or charge a minimum of 3 hours when my estimate was 1-2 hours. Rod was very responsive on thumbtack, asked me about the equipment, and actually looked up how to videos before getting back to me with a quote. When I hired him, we agreed on a date and time, not a 4 hour window. On the day of move, he was running behind by 30 min but called me in advance so that I didnt have to wonder. Rod showed u with Diego, both were courteous. The move when very well, no damages or mess left behind. They had little bit of time till the next job, so we agreed on a side job to put up some shelving. They finished that too without any issues. Overall it was a great experience and I would hire them again for various projects and moving needs!

Dave Harkins did a fantastic one-man job of moving our piano from one room to another. He was careful and no mishaps occurred as the heavy piano was expertly perched onto his dolly and moved across wood flooring onto an uneven tile flooring surface and placed in its new location. I would absolutely hire Dave in the future for any kind of job requiring the moving of heavy or awkward items. As a bonus, he's just a nice guy and was right on time as agreed.

I went through many searches for a moving Company but got the fastest and most consistent response from Credo Moving. They didn't ask for any up front deposit, etc. and showed up timely (texted me there progress to show up at my house). Were very professional and cooperative when I moved into my new place and asked to rearrange furnishings to best fit my place.

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!

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!!!

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.

Out of all the movers that I contacted for our long distance move, Mr. Houston was the best! He couldn't have been more pleasant and easy to work with. When you are dealing with something as stressful as a move it's nice to have someone who is so even keel and communicative about the whole process. He stayed in touch with me the entire move and was very accommodating to all my requests and questions. He gave me a flat rate quote that included everything so there were no hidden fees. His company moved our 4 bedroom house and vehicle from Oceanside, California to Phoenix, Arizona. They showed up on time with materials and completed the job in a little over 24 hours (loading truck, driving to Arizona, unloading into storage). I would highly reccomend their services. It was a pleasure to work with them!

These guys were wonderful and very respectful of my property and myself. My project was moving a large piece of furniture up a tight staircase without incident. They did all of that and more. They took time to do some installation of the feet of the unit and did a great job of that too. I wish I had found these guys weeks earlier when I hire company X and then needed to hire a painter to repair the walls and repaint after their botched job. Please give these brothers a try and you will be as pleased as I am.

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.
