Mario and his crew just moved me and my belongings from Ventura CA to Eugene OR. In a word, Mario's service was superb! He and his crew are professional in demeanor and in the quality of their work, from packing and protecting to loading to transporting to unloading and placing items within the new house. This move was 900 miles and it took Mario and his crew just over 30 hours to complete the job from start to finish. He was prompt, went well beyond that which I expected as he suggested a number of ways to better pack my belongings and did things for me that were not contracted for. Mario and his crew are polite and thoughtful, and simply good people. I recommend Mario Borjas and MGB Relocations in the utmost terms and without any reservations. I have already recommended him to friends, and if I move again, I will call upon Mario to help me do so. Thank you Mario, Erik, and Juan! Kipp Preble, Eugene, OR

The team worked hard to get us out of our old place and into our new one in a timely and efficient manner. We did packing of most of our belongings they wrapped and were careful with wrapping and protecting our artwork and furniture pieces that required special care. The team was friendly but not wasting time. I would have confidence recommending them for a solid no frills move.

Tony and his moving crew did a wonderful job moving my beloved piano! I could not have asked for a better job! They were hardworking, professional, understanding, and took very good care when they were packing the piano up! Also, he was always very easy to get in touch with...I really appreciate his help and will definitely be using Tony's with all of my moving needs in the future!

I highly recommend News Moving Co. to anyone looking for a quick and painless move. I had a great experience starting with receiving the initial, and very affordable quote to signing the final paperwork once my move was completed. Dalila was fast to respond while scheduling and provided outstanding customer service. The movers were also very nice and efficient. I will definitely use their services again in the future!

Great service from an impressive crew. Meder, Kalys, and Hamzat provided great professional service. My wife and I were nervous at the age of the movers, but they were strong, efficient, and professional. Wrapped our items well - nothing damaged. I relied heavily on Thumbtack reviews in choosing 5 Star and I was not disappointed. My one critique would be that 5 Star could have done a better job of communicating what materials I needed to provide and what they were providing. There was some misunderstanding regarding what packing materials the movers were to bring with them. However, the crew were very creative and packed everything well even without the ideal supplies.

If you are in LA and need packing, loading, or local moving, this is who you call!!! I had a horrible experience last Saturday with Long Distance Relocation Services (nightmare)...tried to swindle me in the middle of the job. I had to kicked them out of my house. Had to switch course and execute Plan B, I found this guys on Thumbtack. I needed furniture, bulky items packing and loading a 28 feet semi full of things including my heavy gym machines. Frank and his crew at EXPERIENCED MOVERS MOVING SERVICE saved me today. Efficient, friendly, professional, hard working....made everything was smooth and stress-free for me. I highly recommend them!

I found them on Thumbtack and Michael and Mot did a very good job moving my apartment across town. They were very hard workers and did everything from packing my hanging clothes, wrapping all my furniture, and even fit my couch through a doorway that seemed impossible to fit through. .  Overall, they got the job done well, worked hard and took care of every part of getting my things from Point A to Point B.

We moved three times in the last 1.5 tears. Safe N Fast Movers were fair in price and gave us excellent movers. They take care of your stuff and move carefully and efficient. They were fast with their quote and had a perfect time spot for me. I highly recommend them. Don't make the same mistake we did last time and use Cheap movers (probably with no license). Go for professional company. For Safe N Fast, there were only 3 men and they did a much better job in faster time than 4 men from other company. Ed and his team were awesome, I just can’t stress this enough. They were quick and helpful, with packing and moving. One of our new neighbors asked about a good moving company and we recommended Safe N Fast. She said she will book them soon. PS: You can thank me later guys😉. I definitely recommend Safe N Fast to friends and family.

Gayle and her assistant were delightful. I only gave them 2 hours to pack as much as possible. They were successful in packing 20 boxes of kitchen items. My only complaint is, my 2 very large Costco cooking oils were put on there sides instead of upright and the oil slowly poured out, saturating the entire bottom of the box and the box below that we stacked it on. Other than that, they did a satisfactory job.

Really fast movers! They do not play around. They even showed up 10 minutes early (that literally never happened with any other moving company before) George and his helper moved my 2 bdr from Studio City to Irvine in 6 hours (plus double drive something). Not one lazy moment....they knocked that shit out lol Total was $700 which is damn near good price for how fast it was! Best moving and packing experience ever!

My movers just left and requested a review as quickly as possible. I assured them that I would provide then with a 9 out of 5 star rating. Most importantly, the young men were respectful to my husband and I. I am 67 years old so I was on the young men from start to finish - making sure they were respectful of my belongings and home. They wrapped all of my furniture and assisting with packing items that were not packed upon their arrival. I did notice a small hole in the wall at the pick up address. Tight corners so I did not complain. But I did want them to know that I noticed. Other than that, my belongings arrived in great shape. I will recommend to my friend Margaret who will be moving in about 2 weeks. I informed her to request Mark and Stephen. Thanks again for your hard work. Spend your tip wisely.

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.
