Roy is easy to work with, he is pleasant and professional. He was very flexible with my crazy work schedule. His crew of Angel and Leo were amazing. They were on-time to the job, very competent, professional and personable. I wrapped most of my furniture, but they made sure it was done right! I would highly recommend Roy and his crew for moving services. I will be using them in the future.

I hired Globe Moving Group to pack my home. They did an incredible job. Michael is very responsive. He came out to provide an estimate. Sent four people to pack, who arrived on time and with all of the packing supplies. I also hired Globe Moving Group to move some furniture from a storage unit into a home. Again, they were punctual, fast, put furniture together for me and just pleasant to work with. I would definitely recommend Globe Moving Group for your move or packing needs.

Joel and his staff were amazing!! In my 36 years of living on this earth and over 12 moves, this was by far the best experience I have EVER had. Joel and his staff came over the day before the move and packed our entire 2 bed/ 2 bath 1,500 sqft condo in about 5 hours. My wife and I didn't do anything. They brought the boxes, the shrink-wrap, the tape, and they properly organized and labeled everything. It made unpacking so so much easier. The day after they were done packing, they moved us from Hillcrest to Little Italy all in one day. The loaded, and unloaded, then even helped us unpack at our new home. One of our sofas was too big to fit on elevator becuase of the way it was assembled. But that was no problem for Joel! Him and his guys properly and safely hoisted our very expensive couch from our 2nd floor balcony into the alley. Give Joel a chance, and watch him work his magic! I promise you won't get better value anywhere in SoCal. Thank you Joel!!!

Rod came to help me on very short notice. He placed my new 200 lb tool chest where I wanted it and took away all the packing materials. Today he followed up about a small problem in an exceptional way. He is very professional, dedicated , and a pleasure to do business with. By all means hire him to do your moving.

I contacted the company on short notice and Josh was very accommodating to my needs. Allen and Kevin did a very good job in packing. I was overwhelmed at the task and didn't have enough packing material to do the job. They brought plenty of boxes and paper. They were professional and I am Very pleased.

This moving company was amazing. I had a wonderful experience. All our furniture was nicely wrapped in moving blankets, mattresses and sofas shrink wrapped, beds disassembled and reassembled, they even let us use their wardrobe boxes for free. I lived in my home for 20 years. I definitely needed help with packing and the packing crew did such a grear job - all fragiles and china was nicely packed. I moved from a 2500 sqf home, needed to store my belongings for 3 months while I was looking for a new home. They handled the packing, move into storage and move out of storage. Everything went smooth, I'm very happy with my choice and will definitely recommend them to anyone I know. Thanks

Luis and his team KILLED IT with our move. We requested their services about 36 hours in advance and were so thrilled they could work with us with such short notice. My husband and I were so impressed with their rapid work pace and organization, despite the 95 degree day and having to lug everything out of our 2nd floor apartment. They didn't lag at all throughout the day, and were happy to help me rearrange some furniture around the house when I changed my mind. Moving can be extremely stressful, but Just in Time made it a breeze. I'm so thankful for Luis and will definitely recommend him to my friends.

Amber arrived on time and brought all the supplies (we had just moved out and left nothing in our old apartment). She was thorough, estimated the time needed well, and we got our full deposit back. More than that, her personality was awesome, full of smiles and really pleasant, seemed happy to chase down my dust bunnies. If we hadn't moved out of the city, I would have contracted with her on a regular basis.

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.

Such great service. Easy booking, no hidden fees or drive time fees. Courteous and profession. They called when en route and even updated if they were running a little behind schedule. I went over my 2 hour allotted time by 30 mins. and they added in the extra time with no hidden costs. I would highly recommend Easy packing and moving to my friends and family and would use them again.

Dmytro and the Packing Bees team are fantastic. I've used them for a couple of moves and have referred others to them. Every experience has been perfect. They're very friendly and flexible. They work fast but are also very careful with your belongings. Pricing is super reasonable. Couldn't recommend them more. You'll never want to pack your own stuff again.

I hired Sara to help me organize my room and closet about a month ago. I really wanted to take the time to write a thorough and excellent review. Hiring Sara was truly a life changing experience and I could not be anymore pleased by her service. She came in with a smile and such a positive attitude when I met her! She was so excited to help me organize my room; I started to feel the same! Sara is extremely helpful, creative, and insightful- she knew what to do to maximize every inch of my closet to make it look more organized! She came in extremely prepared with bags, tools, and other supplies. Not only did she help me organize my room, but she walked me through the steps on HOW to organize. Ever since I met Sara, my life has been less stressful and more at ease. I’ve keep my room extremely organized and have used what she had taught me in other settings. I highly recommend everybody to hire Sara because she is EXCELLENT. In addition, she even took time out of her day to send me photos and other ideas on how I can restructure my room to use the space for organization. GREAT service, you MUST hire her :) She’s great! Thanks again Sara!!! I never knew organizing could be so fun until I met you!

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 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!

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.
