I received two reminder calls: one the day before and the second when the truck was en route. Very reassuring for someone in the middle of juggling a move. The truck arrived 30 minutes early (not late). The two gentlemen were polite and friendly. I appreciate the free wrapping of all my furniture. The only reason for 4/5 stars is that one couch leg was broken (I think it's salvageable but it will require some attention). Would use movers again. Also, the price was just right (and I shopped around).

Team was friendly and efficient. Showed up on time and went straight to work. Moved furniture where needed and replaced. Cleaned closet doors and bathroom mirrors at no extra cost. Price for the work was more than fair. Will ask to return for routine cleaning.

We had a long move from Los Angeles to San Diego, and we were looking for a reasonably priced, no hassle movers. It was a good call for us to hire Mike & Shaw, and the company made it an easy and pain free experience. The guys were professional, efficient, courteous, and were willing to help out in anyway they could. Great communication throughout the whole process, from the initial thumbtack inquiry to the very end of the move. Would highly recommend.

Pat was the best mover I've ever had! Brought my stuff from Los Angeles to San Francisco and the move was a total breeze! From the start Pat gave a great price (significantly lower than other movers) and was easy to communicate with. During the actual move he instantly relieved my stress and moved my stuff quickly and efficiently. Can't recommend him enough. Excellent mover!

I used movers more than 10 times, and they never give you a price or an estimate on the move, Cloud 9 they came thru for me and my family like no one else. they gave me a price and stuck with it even it took them longer than the estimate. I love those guys and I will recommend them to everyone that I need's movers.

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.

We had a great experience using First Choice Movers. We had the movers move all of our furniture from our garage to the first floor of our condo. The movers arrived on time, were extremely efficient, and they were also careful....we have a difficult staircase to maneuver but they did not nick our walls at all! Plus, they were very nice guys. We were really happy that we chose First Choice Movers!

I had such a hard time finishing reliable movers. But once I came across this company all my worries went away. I received the best customer service possible. I was quoted an amazing price and they always touched bases with me day before. The day of the move they arrived on time and ready to get the job done. It was literally less than 2 hours I couldn't be more satisfied I would totally hire these guys again !!!!!!!!!!!

Greek Movers went well above and beyond my expectations. We needed a single, very large, extremely fragile, item moved about 50 miles. Their communication was phenomenal and they were both very friendly and professional. They do not have a truck but were able to secure one for an additional fee so keep that in mind when booking. For additional labor needs on any moving project, I would highly recommend Odd Job Industries: Greek Movers for your move.

This is an extremely late review, but I steel feel the need to say this. This is an AMAZING COMPANY . I moved back to Los Angeles from Corona, and I needed professional services for all of my large furniture. I have a four bedroom fully furnished home, and there was no way I was going to be able to pack and move all of that furniture, even with a crew of friends. It was short notice, and I called at least five different companies .The estimated quotes were expensive from the other movers, and the customer service of some of them were questionable (I will review those companies on their respective yelp pages). From my first contact with the owner of Moving Packing Group , I knew I was speaking with a professional. I called and left a message, and he responded within 20 minutes. I told him my situation, and he was able to give me a reasonable quote considering the distance, and amount of furniture that I was moving. When the time came to move, the movers packed up the furniture and the items that I weren't able to, and packed all of my rooms in the moving truck in less time than google suggested it would take (Yes I google everything.. LOL). One thing that stood out was the care that the movers put into my belongings, and their level of professionalism. My furniture was delivered and set up the way that I asked for it to be, and in the SAME CONDITION that it was taken from in my previous home. Although this company is in Anaheim, they service all Orange County cities and Los Angeles. I would use this service again for cross country move. Moving is a hassle in itself, and I am happy that I had those experienced movers from Moving Packing to help me during this stressful time of relocating.

I had a great experience with Wemove from beginning to end. When I reached out to them, they responded promptly and were very accommodating, despite pretty strict rules from my buildings. Great customer service from Eddie! They were also available on relatively short notice and had very competitive prices. On the day of the move, the movers communicated with me frequently, were perfectly on time, and moved everything in an efficient manner. Mike, Nick, and Alex were all fast and adaptable- I moved from a building with a tiny elevator to a 4th-floor walk-up, and they were great. They finished my move (2BR apartment) in under 5 hours. Low prices, great services, and reliable movers- highly recommend!

We moved from our apartment in Irvine to Newport Beach. I really didn't want to use a mover but I remember the last time I moved myself and it was not fun I called 21st century Van Linesand got a quote from Robert he was very thorough and explained all the charges to me. when the guys arrived they saw that it was an elevator and a long walk to our apartment but they didn't seem to care they moved our items pretty quickly and then when they delivered it they placed it where we wanted it so I was very happy I would recommend James and Ruben for your job they were very friendly and courteous it cost actually less than I thought it would so thanks again 21st century

The movers were excellent! Very friendly and professional. The owner could have explained the cost and charges at time of hire a lot better. The move ended up costing me several hundred dollars more than expected.

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.
