Moving, in itself, is so enormously stressful. It sucks, and I regularly do everything I can during an apartment hunt to avoid moving at all costs - aka, finding a place that I'm going to stay in for as long as possible. But there are moments in life when it's just unavoidable, like when it's time to move into your own home as a single mother. Which means moving stress is inevitable. Conrad is a God sent. I can't even begin to describe how incredibly awesome, wonderful, and hassle-free he made my moving. He finished the unload at my new place about less than 24 hrs ago and OH MY GOD I am so grateful to him and his guys for rocking it. I didn't want to waste money on paying movers to move when I could move them myself, but they were experts with the big and bulky pieces and storage bins and boxes....CONRAD OVER EXCEEDED MY EXPECTATIONS....which was fantastically priced compared to others in the area. I should mention too that my request was last minute yet he immediately offered to show up with his crew, a big broad smile, strong helping hands and very accommodating on price. Even better yet, he did it so fast in the scorching heat. ENORMOUS THANKS AND LOVE to conrad. Truly, you made the conclusion of my move so stress-free and easy that my sorrow of leaving my old place and concern of unpacking in my new place is just totally gone. I will absolutely use you...I hope not....😊 in the future and recommend them to any and all people moving. God bless Leonie

WOW! These guys were on time, professional, quick, polite and courteous, and can get the job done with service above and beyond what was expected. Honest quotes and exceptionally reliable. Hailed a piano from Ventura to SB and up a bunch of stairs in no time with ease. Good business practices, loyal, and well priced :) Thanks Cody's Movers. Will never call another moving service again, you're out "go to" guy!

JC is really nice guy. The customer service was great. The first mover I contacted showed up with a pick up truck and said he couldn't do the job. Therefore I was left a terrible pickle. So I went back to Thumbtack and called JC. Luckily he was coming back from LA and agreed to meet me in Goleta. The move was very efficient. I wish everything got into the truck but all the big and heavy furniture items were moved. JC and his guys took great care of our stuff. They also unloaded each item in the room that we requested. Overall we were very happy with our experience with West Coast Movers. That is why I give them five stars and would recommend them to my friends.

Magnificent Movers made my move simply that, Magnificent! They arrived early, hustled and hurried, were extremely careful with my belongings, and even super patient with me even when a was extremely stressed. I can only imagine how stressful my move would've been without them. Thank you Mag Move team!!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.
