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!!

Top Shelf answered my last minute request after Double J movers cancelled on me last minute (day before). I'm grateful for their flexibility and professionalism - glad the other guys cancelled!

I have to say they did an excellent job, they were able to show up early to the appointment and worked straight through for 5 hours with very little break until the job was done. When there was an issue they quickly responded and took care of the problem in a professional manner. For the amount of stuff we had, 5 hours was quick and most of it was very heavy items but they never complained once. They were also extremely careful with our belongings and were even willing to accommodate some special requests we made of them. I would have to say that what they charge versus the service they provide is a incredible deal to anyone looking to possibly hire some movers. So yes, I would definitely recommend them to others for their moving needs. And thank you guys for all of your help, we will surely call you again the next time we need to move.

The movers were on time, professional and very helpful. They disassembled my furniture, packed my garage and moved all my furniture. They used plastic wrap and blankets on all my items and we're very respectful of all my property.

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!

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.

Daniels' movers are hard working professionals that make sure that your items are well taken care of. They showed up in a 26' van with both power lift and ramp capabilities. They had to move all of our belongings out of our garage and they took the time to pack some of the smaller items that we had forgotten about. We had put out a call for "next day" service after a fire had destroyed most of the garage line that our garage was part of. Luckily we were on the end and both we, and the lad at the other end, were unscathed except for heavy smoke damage. Daniel sent his team out and they got everything packed into the van within an hour and a half. Due to time constraints Daniel offered to store our goods over night and deliver them the next day. You just can't beat that kind of customer relationship. If the need should arise again I will use Reliable Delivery LLC for certain. These men are super fast and very careful.

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.

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.

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!

Although the movers were quite a bit later than expected they did do a good job. There were a lot stairs to deal with and the guy were troopers. That’s mainly why a job that would have normally taken 6 hours took closer to 8.

I hired Sun City Muscle Movers on 8/1/2017. They were great to work with. Houston which is the owner was actually on the move along with another guy named Daniel. I couldn't believe that the owner was actually at my house assisting with my move. I told him that was very rare. I moved a couple times in the last past years and the owners I dealt with wouldn't give a hand or two nor come out and assist with my previous moves. He knew what he was doing when it came to packing up my house. My husband and I were very happy during and after the move was completed. Thank you, Sun City Muscle Movers. Keep up the great work!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
