Other than a slight delay in the arrival time of the movers, which was due to weather and road conditions everything went very well. The movers were professional and took the time to wrap furniture items before loading them. All items arrived at the final destination safe and undamaged. I would recommend Safe Moving to anyone needing a reliable professional and fairly priced moving company.

I had a great experience moving with Spartan. I called a few weeks ahead of my moving date and was able to schedule the move without any issues. They immediately sent a confirmation email with all the details and tips on how to pack and prepare. I also got a discount by scheduling my move on a weekday. On moving day they called in the morning and let me know they'd be arriving around 9:30am. They showed up on time and immediately got to work. The foreman took charge of disassembling the furniture and wrapping all the tv's and furniture, while the other two guys hauled everything into the truck. They even brought wardrobe boxes for our closets, and packed up a couple boxes of loose items that we hadn't managed to pack. It took them about 4.5 hours to load up our large 2 bedroom + storage unit and we were on our way to the new place. Unloading at the new house was much quicker, taking them about 2.5 hours including reassembling all the furniture. No items were missing or broken. All in, it took about 7.5 hours to move from SF to Tiburon, plus about $100 in extra packing materials and boxes. Moving sucks, it's the absolute worst, but Spartan made it tolerable. I will definitely use them next time I move.

Albion was great. After finding them on thumbtack I called and asked them about our planned move. They gave us an estimated time, talked through the things we could do to help, and said they'd be there at 10am on moving day. A week and a half later at 10am exactly they knocked on our door. The whole move went great, they moved our TV, a custom built computer and many other things we had trouble packing. It turns out they had to share an elevator at the new building, which slowed them down a bit. Had this not been the case I think their original estimate would have been spot on. Even with this slow down it wasn't that far off. On top of that their rates are very reasonable. Go with Albion.

DDT Moving was beyond what I hoped for in my apartment move. In planning the move, Daniel was extremely responsive, efficient, and flexible in scheduling the dates and times. The pricing is more than fair, especially for the work value you're getting from them. Leading up to the move, Daniel confirmed the job and clarified all details. On the day of the move, they were right on time and got straight to wrapping the furniture and packing up the truck. I really appreciated that they were aware of time and were working hard to stay on track. Everything was wrapped carefully and handled safely. They also came super prepared with other materials (like wardrobe boxes) that we might not have had. Their work ethic is extremely impressive, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you DDT Moving!!

These guys are great. They quoted the lowest out of 12 companies, then gave me a discount when they couldn't make the original pickup due to mechanical problems. When they were back up and running, they showed up on time, were really friendly, and cleared out my garage super fast. Two big thumbs up!

I experienced excellent service with Leclair Moving moving company today, 8/10/18. To be honest, I had a list several moving companies, but when I called Leclair to inquire about pricing, I spoke with Horatio who was more than happy to answer all th questions I had. He was kind, professional, polite and patient with all my questions. When I met him in person (he was one of the movers) he was a delight to talk to you. Horatio was what made me choose Leclair moving company. It’s employees like these who make a difference just On the initial contact! If considering a move, Inhighly recommend Leclair Moving Services! Thank you, Horatio and Kevin, for a great move. You made it so easy! My daughter so appreciates it and so do I! Rebecca Dahlgren

The crews came to my house showed great professionalism. They carefully handled our furniture and other bulky items from a large electric piano to garden patio set. Only thing I didn't like was some communication gap b/w their manager and myself. I initially asked if it's possible to take shoes off so that crews don't bring any dirt into our house. He practically declined for safety reason, I would understand. In exchange, he offered to bring many pads so that their main paths will be covered with it. Also, he mentioned that they start at 9:30 am. On the moving day, the crews arrived before 9 am because their manager said starting time is 9 am. Also, they didn't bring any pads for the floor. They said their manager didn't mention anything about it. These were very disappointing. Again, the crews worked hard and did jobs well done. The other thing is how they count the hours. It's somewhat weird that adding the doubled driving time on top of the total duration time. The total duration already includes driving time. If the driving time should double, then adding portion should be just another driving time, and it shouldn't add double since it makes a tripled time in the end. Also, the appointment was 9:30 am, but they wanted to count from 8:30 am because they started at that time. That didn't make sense, and I asked I don't understand, we settled to charge from 9 am instead. I don't know if these are a standard practice of moving industry, but I wish they could explain more clearly beforehand (the estimate didn't say anything about those details.)

I talked to Kyle prior to hiring them. He is very personable, and I liked that they charge by the hour from their office and back. They also offered a 10% senior discount which I appreciated. They had a big truck, and all the supplies one would need. They wrapped up the furniture that needed wrapping for a long time in storage, and also to protect it during the move. They moved all my furniture down two flights of stairs and into a storage unit. So...they showed up on time, worked hard, didn't charge me for their breaks. I was very happy with this moving company!

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.

I hired MP Movers (Marquiz) to assemble a 6 drawer IKEA dresser. He arrived right on time and was very polite. The dresser came in 3 different boxes which had to be moved downstairs to my daughter's room, which he did for me. He was so conscientious that at one point the instructions didn't match the materials and he brought this to my attention. He quoted me a flat fee and stuck to that. All in all, I couldn't have been happier and I will definitely hire MP Movers again. I highly recommend Marquiz and MP Movers.

Nicolas was easy to work with, was not only on time, and was friendly. He and his other mover did a great job picking up furniture for me in another city, then brought it to me. They also helped me move furniture around after just moving in a week ago. I would definitely use them again.

Chris was great, very efficient getting the job done and I would hire him again. The one note I would suggest to Chris moving forward is to be clear about price and offer a revised estimate once onsite. In my case he quoted $90 for a truck load, I asked if it was the truck in the picture and he simply said a regular truck. He arrived in a truck like the picture. I had a sectional sofa, a chair, small dresser and 4 stacking chairs and at least a standard truck load of debris. In the end Chris charged me $240 which was more than I anticipated but I paid the bill, Chris had done a good job and all my junk was gone. All in, he was at my home 1.5 hrs. After the fact he told me he charged by the truck load. If I had understood that going in I might have purged a few more things!

We called Clutter to help us move between apartments. The set up process was seamless and the person on the other end was great and funny. On moving day Alex S, Alex P and Darnell W came in on time, were extremely efficient and were fun to talk to. We were done in 4 hours! Alex being a magician with the ikea set up helped a ton too! They were great at navigating the tricky corners and didn't miss a beat even in the 90 plus heat. We loved the experience with clutter and we will definitely call on them again! Way better than all the last movers combined!

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 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.
