I needed to move a huge, heavy glass-top desk from my apartment in SOMA to my office a few blocks away-- on foot. JP was great from the start. He arrived with a plan and got the job done in under 20 minutes! Every piece was handled with care, and the cost was much lower than quotes I got from big moving companies. I'd definitely book again.

I needed to move within a week and wasn't sure what day I would be getting the keys. The owner contacted me late Saturday night to see if I still needed help on Sunday. While, he couldn't assist me at the time I needed (early morning), he got some of his contacts to help us. The movers that came (Tony + assistant) were good and careful. The move took a lot longer than expected. I moved a 1 bedroom with washer and dryer and it took them 8.5 hours. They planned for 2-3hrs. While they might have been able to move all the things in one trip, they suggested doing two trips, stating it would be faster that way. I don't really think it saved us time by doing two trips but I was willing to try it. My only feedback is, please say CASH ONLY if you will only accept cash. After a long day of packing and moving, we had to drive out to the ATM to get cash to pay them. Inconvenient on all accounts. Otherwise, I would say these guys did a good job and came through last minute.

Leclair Moving is the best!!! Used them for a Craig's list buy (big sectional couch) . They got back to me quickly with the best quote to pick up the couch at the sellers, move it to my house (about 15 miles away) and take the old couch away . The best thinks was that they charged a flat fee for the move. Other moving companies had a per hour charge with minimum number of hours (3 hrs). Giving other movers no incentive to finish the job quickly. Leclair was quick, on time , and easy to work with. Thanks for a great experience Leclair. I would use you again.

We were thrilled with M.P. Movers. Marquis Philip was responsive to messages, showed up on time, moved things from one place and Ikea to our home 1-1/2 hours away and assembled an Ikea day bed. He is reliable, a hard worker and a very nice guy. He did an excellent job. We would hire him again, and will refer him to others.

Nicholas is one of the best moving and delivery guy in the bay area. Within hours after I contacted him, he arrived on time and was prepared to remove our huge load of bags of soil. He has the capacity to move all sizes of furniture and other various items. Nichols is the one to call for a quick and efficient removal service.

They were very punctual and quick in packing up several large items (china hutch, curio cabinet, recliners, etc.) we had moved to Tracy. Had several items with glass and nothing was broken or compromised! I would definitely use them again! They also hauled off two items to the dumps. Very convenient, the two services they offer!

I had to move all the contents of my entire classroom into a storage unit this past Thursday, July 19th. Six years of my life stuffed into small, medium and large boxes plus a bunch of plastic containers and miscellaneous. After 3 days of intense packing I was left with a few hours to search for a moving company and storage space. I was simply overwhelmed. That's when I came across Rafael and his wife Nara. They were the best thing that happened to me this past week. We agreed to meet at the school in South San Francisco at 9:00 am sharp. I arrived at 8:50 and found Rafael and Natalia already in full gear (padded gloves holding a dolly and blankets) waiting by the truck. They both greeted me with that strong handshake and warm smile so characteristic of Brazilians. I felt at home! After I showed them to my room and explained what I needed done they started carrying the boxes to the truck. They were diligent, extremely careful and professional. I was very impressed and relieved, as I had a painful experience with a moving company two years ago when we settled into our new home in Newark. When they were done storing all my items, Rafael informed me he made sure all the boxes were facing out so I could see their labels. That was something I was actually going to ask them to do, but ended up forgetting amidst all the commotion of saying goodbye to some of my work colleagues. The final touch was when Rafael asked me whether I was happy with the way he arranged the boxes inside the unit. I thought that was very thoughtful of him. They charged me a fairly reasonable price with no hidden fees. At the end, both parties were happy! I strongly recommend Rafael and Natalia's services and will definitely contact them again once I need my classroom supplies moved to a new classroom (which I hope will happen soon). Patricia M.

I had a small moving project that needed to be coordinated like a Swiss watch movement: a very nice antique bookcase (that I just had refinished) and was transporting myself via a uhaul truck on a Friday morning to a destination some 70 miles away, had to be carefully unloaded and moved. More, I also had to get the displaced furniture moved to the garage (a small entertainment unit and small wooden book case) AND get capable people to do it with basically one day’s notice! The pressure was on! I literally posted my request on Thursday at 3:49 am (couldn’t sleep!). Elite Power Washing came to my rescue! They were the first to respond with a very reasonable quote, agreed to an 8:30 am appointment on Friday, and reassured me that they were up for the task. Mike and Juan arrived promptly, took direction on my suggestions on how to transport the piece (after I had watched how my furniture refinisher and his cohort had moved it), and placed it gently in the right spot. Mike and Juan are calm, courteous, considerate, and caring. They are professional, punctual, and take pride in what they do. I will definitely add them to my roster of professionals that I can count on, and will contact them for future jobs. I will assess my gutters and power washing needs as well... Happy and Relieved!

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.
