I hired Safe Moving for packing, help to storage and to my new place. Things quickly went bad. Omarion, I believe, told me he was packing though wasn't his job. I explained that on my communications it was. Then I get a sorry. After buying them lunch, giving the two many items, low and behold only 1/3 of my storage was moved. I left for an hour , and while I was gone , my friend told me they were sitting in the truck! At $85 per hour. When I asked if I could see what was left in the truck before leaving the storage, I was declined. They packed so slow that 6 hours quickly passed. I ended up paying for 12 without an invoice at $1100!!! Am I upset, you bet ya! I'm disabled and asked for help finding my medication. Again, Omarian chimed in " Get it yourself!"!Please help! I'm not well and way past the hour to take my medicine. He told me to use the flashlight on my phone. He turned his in and said " Yours has one too!" I'm flabbergasted. As I expected to pay $500-$600 max, all of a sudden I'm being threatened they were phoning the police if I didn't give them what they asked for. I should have let them phone except I'm a new tenant. Now I paid $1100, they worked slow to run the clock, no invoice and threatened a single disabled woman with phoning the police. Would I ever recommend this company. NEVER! EVER! NEVER! I'm 57, generous, never yell, disabled and that's what happened to me. What do you think may be your experience?

Frank was a pleasure to work with. Our house sold while we were abroad and I coordinated packing and moving of items from a 7k sqft house in El Dorado hills to the bay area with Frank and his team. He was able to schedule 2 full days of packing and moving within a week of my request and did it at a very reasonable price. All parties who worked with him on both ends of the move enjoyed his professionalism. Will definitely recommend to others.

Ruben and his team did an excellent job moving my items with care. His team arrived before there scheduled time and was ready to work. My condo is on the third floor and Smooth Movin'Ruben had no problem taking the stairs on. This move was a eight hour job which the team wanted to work until the job was finished but I had to make them take a break and eat something. I will refer Smooth Movin'Ruben to any one that ask me about a moving company.

One of the absolute best moving companies we have ever worked with. Always on time and super-hard working, very reasonably priced. Postive attitudes and humor. We felt very comfortable with them right away and like old friends the second day. They really went yhe extra mile for us, not only bringing in boxes and furniture but also putting furniture together and helping place it. We highly recommend this family company. We will definitely call on them again.

Excellent experience. Having used a number of moving companies over the past decade, CWM is exemplary. My reasons are simple: 1. Transparent and Affordable- I genuinely appreciated the all-inclusive rate (labor+supplies+gas) that helped me to predict my overall spend for moving. 2. Professional Service- The movers handled our belongings- particularly the wall art and 60" TV- with more care than even I would if I were able to lift those fat hogs. :) 3. A Small Business that Pushes the Limit: by comparison to other moving companies, CWM not only nips at the heels of larger competitors, but surpasses them with high quality service, affordability, and professionalism. It would be nonsense to move without considering CWM.

Ralph was great! He and his assistant were friendly, efficient and so helpful. He helped me move a two bedroom house into a uhaul to drive to Arizona. He was amazing at fitting everything in and securing it for the 13 hour drive! I arrived with everything just how it was packed No broken or overturned items! I would use Ralph again for any packing and moving needs!

We just needed a couple big items moved, were moving within Sacramento and did most of it ourselves, had our own moving truck, just needed a couple extra hands. Easy Pro responded asap, showed up within the hour, helped us load and unload the heavy items, everything went smoothly. Would definitely work with them again.

Do not hesitate to call G B Construction for gutter cleaning and replacement and leaf guards. They are prompt, quick, thorough, friendly and professional. Their charges are reasonable, and they do not upsell. I understand that they also do tile and wood floors, painting and household moving. I will be using them again and again.

Needed a cat door put in my wall to outside of house and just moving in my tools where packed. Got hold of Mike and he came out the next day. I showed him what I wanted and he did the job in an hour and a half. I'm really happy (no more cat box smell) and so are my wife and daughter. Thanks again Mike. Will call you again if I need anything else I don't have time or knowledge for a project.

M&M Movers is an excellent company. I would definitely use them again, and definitely recommend them to anyone who is moving. I moved from East Bay to the Phoenix area. I had 6 different moving companies provide cost estimates and explain to me how they will handle my household goods. I have many pieces of furniture I purchase from all over the world and to me they are priceless. JR is the only one who convinced me that he would treat my furniture with the care I believe it deserves - and he followed through. And another plus, is that the price he quoted was the price I paid. All other companies gave me estimates that could not be guaranteed. JR delivered my household goods within 3 days of pickup - he could have delivered sooner but my house was not ready for a quicker delivery. All other companies told me that it would be 7-10 days before they would deliver - this was not acceptable. The only "complaint" I have is that at delivery, they didn't fully set up my adjustable bed; they didn't connect the power cord to the underside of the platform. I called JR and he said that one of his folks would return to complete the setup. The guy never showed up. The platform for the bed is too heavy for me to move, but a neighbor helped. That's the only thing that I could say didn't go well. There was no damage to anything. This is the best move I've ever had and I've moved a lot! I surely recommend M&M Movers.

They were great! No banging of furniture on walls. Moved things very carefully and went above and beyond for me. Only suggestion I have us is carry tools and useful resources you may need during a move. Otherwise, job well done!

Verified review

Pat was great! We requested his services last minute because of issues with the moving company we had booked, and others we had looked into. Despite high ratings on Yelp, these companies had questionable practices that manifested as the moving date got closer, and further research revealed low ratings on BBB and noteworthy complaints. Unlike these companies, Pat was very transparent and very responsive. It only took an hour or two after our initial phone call for him to provide us with the requested information and a draft of the contract, which helped with our initial reservations of him as an independent mover. He even included a detailed checklist of items to be transported, and easily provided references when we inquired about where else we could find more information about his services. The references spoke of him very highly and warmly! He hired help on both ends of the move-- both nice, hardworking guys who went straight to work. Pat made sure our furniture and miscellaneous items were packed well in the trailer. Things went smoothly, and we are so happy to have found him! We were comfortable with him throughout the whole process. His rate was also the lowest among all the movers we had checked out, which seems to reflect the honesty of his work.

Love this company! James is a true professional. He let me know by text every step of the way of our upcoming move and how soon the movers would be there. In today's world, you rarely find the professional conduct, ethics and follow-through like James' company. His workers were friendly, fast and efficient and nothing was damaged. I will use this company again and recommend them highly.

Cherish Moving did a fantastic job moving our things without incident. We had a long distance move so were hesitant to use them instead of a national moving company. This was much better! They were on time and the move out/move in job went well. They are fully certified and insured and we will definitely use them again. Emily and Sergio were fantastic to work with, very responsive and helped us out with everything. I recommend them for either an interstate or intrastate move!

Paul and Katelyn managed all of our requirements with timely responses and quality service, at a price far better than the other quotes we received. They even dealt with an unexpected snowstorm without missing their delivery time. We would highly recommend Paul and his company for any long distance move.

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.
