The owner Scott is very responsive and accommodating. Within a day of my call, I had three movers at my house. I needed a very heavy armoire moved upstairs. The movers were on time, professional, and made sure the armoire and floors were protected from any damage. They wrapped the armoire and put furniture pads down to ensure no damage was done to the hardwood floors. I would definitely use this company again and would highly recommend.

Well Walter was very professional and the movers showed up 45 mins after the time window which was not bad. The move lasted 6 hrs to a one bedroom apartment which I felt was a bit too long. Some of my stuff got damaged as I saw after I started resetting my home so movers could use some extra caution. I know one guy was very cautious but not the other who I feel caused the damages I noticed later to my stuff and the apartment door and walls as they moved things into my place.

I needed help with moving some heavy furniture around my house (I have a 3-story house with narrow staircases) and also needed some larger furniture transported to a charity that I like (but unfortunately no pick-up service). I found the entire experience both convenient and very professional. Their website is great, very easy to set up an appointment and the text reminders were very helpful as well. Edward was also very responsive to my initial text before I had the website info. The movers showed up exactly on time and were very efficient (but careful with my furniture!) with the move. I had originally booked 2 hours but the entire move took much less time. Both movers were extremely polite, professional and helpful...the entire experience was very positive...I wish more services ran this professionally. I felt that their prices were very reasonable as well...I've spent far more money renting Uhauls and bribing my friends with food/drink to help ;-). It was very apparent that the owners of this company care very much about their company and customer service...I will definitely be using them again and highly recommend this company!!

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

Tony was the first to respond to my inquiry about painting the outside of my cottage. He came over the next day to evaluate the job. We easily agreed on a price for the whole job, and came to an understanding that it needed to be completed in the next two weeks. Despite some rain, which complicated the schedule, Tony and his team arrived on time, powerwashed the house, went above and beyond and repaired some rotting areas, did an excellent painting job, cleaned up thoroughly and put everything back as requested. I will definately use Tony's Handyman Services again for this, and for other projects. My sense is Tony is quite competent and can do carpentry, stonework, floors, fenches, irrigation systems -- pretty much anything I might need. Thanks Tony!

We asked for a move out special from Main Movers last week and I'm happy to report that it has been the smoothest move for us! It took the guys 6/7 hours total, Julian and his guys were effective and sensitive. We've had terrible experiences before with moving companies but Main Movers we've been worry-free. the payment was also declared up front and there were no "surprise" fees. We are very happy with MM and recommend it to one and all.

Southwest movers were on time, hard workers, and communicated well. Price higher than original quote but still extremely reasonable. It cost us just under $1000 to move a almost full truck. Definitely worth not having to move that much stuff ourselves! We recommended them to my parents and they used them as well.

I wish I could do 4.5 stars... these movers were close to perfect with just a little room for improvement. Excellent customer services takes it to 5. John and his team helped us move from Sunnyvale to San Francisco. We provided boxes and box packing materials and had some of our stuff boxed already. They packed the rest of the stuff, drove it up to SF, and brought the boxes into our new apartment. They also hauled away some items from our old apartment that we couldn't keep or donate. ~ the excellent ~ John and the team were prompt and friendly. They packed the items we needed help with quickly, and they treated our fragile items with care. They also lifted a couch over a fence because it didn't fit through the door - problem solving! And they were happy to pick up things from two stops: my old apartment and my roommate's old place. John was readily available through phone calls or texts and communicated well. ~ improvement ~ During the hauling process, our floor got scratched a bit. It was minor and no one noticed until the movers had left, so not sure how they would have handled it. Also, it would help if the movers label boxes they packed. A few unlabeled things ended up in the wrong room at our new place (not a big deal). ~ overall ~ Efficient moving service at a great price. I definitely recommend Mr J Moving.

They showed up on time and worked hard to get all of our stuff moved in safely. We were supposed to have 3 movers, but the night before they let us know they only had 2 available, so it took longer than we had expected, but overall we were very satisfied.

Armando is very detail oriented, thorough and extremely gracious. Initially he painted two bathrooms and one bedroom. He was the only painter to notice that my daughter's bedroom walls were painted, rather than wallpapered as multiple other painters who bid on the job assumed; this had significant impact regrading how to proceed. He and his team are pleasant, respectful, responsive, and easy to have around. When asked, they kindly cleaned and replaced some light bulbs in fixtures that are extremely hard to reach. We have already hired him to paint the entire exterior of the house and WILL HIRRE HIM FOR ANY FUTURE PAINTING.

Moving can be a stressful and hiring movers can be even more so. I've had a couple bad experiences before, so I was a little unsure what to expect on thumbtack. Ken wasn't the first to reply to my request, but of the half dozen responses I received, he was the only one who wanted to see what we had to move in person. I had been considering another mover, although that fell through when that mover became unavailable for a two week period without any prior notice. Ken's quote was also more than reasonable, and I felt comfortable with him, so we scheduled the move. Our time was not specific (sometime mid morning). I don't know if that's typical for him, but it didn't bother me once we knew when he was on his way. Ken doesn't text, so you'll actually have to pick up the phone to reach him. I think that's probably better than email as well. I like texting, but I think Ken's old-school about that. Ken showed up as promised with a second mover, Theo. His quoted rate was for two people, not per person as with the other quotes I received. I later found out Ken (and Theo) are involved in scouting, which explains the ethics I saw Ken display before, during, and after the move. I was extremely pleased with the work Ken and Theo did. They were professional and amenable to all the extra requests I made of them. We ended up using them to help move some additional items, so the move took pretty much all day. And at the end, Ken didn't try to pad the hours or demand extra money (or any kind of tip--which I gave them anyway because they deserved it.) Ken charges mileage for his truck (fuel costs at 9 mpg) and return travel time from the origin of the move, which is pretty standard fare. Only one quote I received didn't do this, but their hourly rate was almost triple. You do the math. He also did not require me to commit to a minimum number of hours (although this move ended up taking more than 9 hours.) They weren't the fastest movers, but they weren't the slowest, and they were careful with our belongings, which I really appreciated. What's the good of hiring movers only to have your things damaged in the move? We also had difficult stairs at both the from and to locations. Ken doesn't charge extra for stairs, etc. It takes longer to be careful negotiating the tight corners, but that's to be expected. They put blankets down on all the railings. I think they might have run out of blankets, but I'm not sure. One suggestion: Be sure you've got everything packed and larger pieces accessible. They're used to moving furniture (I think Ken specializes in moving antique and high-end furniture) not packing boxes. Part of what slowed us down was that we were not completely ready for them, and we kept adding new items as they became ready to move. Still, Ken and Theo just smiled and asked what else we had. I would highly recommend Wood Frog Transport to anyone looking for a good mover. Ken made our experience a positive one, which may be the very first time that has happened for me in dozens of moves over the years.

Best moving van lines took away all of our stress while they helped us move. Their skills started showing from the moment I called them for the first time. The woman on the phone seemed really friendly and helpful. She really seemed keen to help me with the price and we finally settled on a number that was really reasonable. On the moving day, the movers showed up right on time with proper equipment. They were very creative while packing everything. They were fast and thorough. The foreman was a very experienced man. It was so good to know that I was in such experienced hands. It really paid off during the delivery. Not one thing was damaged! I just cannot thank these guys enough.

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.
