We were moving from our 3 bedroom condo to a 4 bedroom house. The movers were a party of 4 and a truck who showed up exactly on time. They were very prompt and organized. We had packed most of our loose items in boxes. So they mainly had to focus on the big items. All the furniture was handled with care and neatly wrapped in plastic. They also did a good job of neatly assembling all the furniture at our new house. They made sure all the boxes and items were delivered to the correct room. They were quite friendly and acted very professionally. We had a lot of big items and they made sure the move and assembly was completed within a reasonable time. Overall my experience with MGB has been excellent. I would recommend them to any customer looking to make a hassle free move.

I found Tony's delivery and labor right here on thumbtack, he reached out to me after hearing about my 1bedroom apartment move. After going through tons of quotes with other companies, he gave me a great price. The movers were on time, very friendly and very knowledgeable. Tony even called during the move to make sure we were satisfied with just how everything was going. I'm extremely grateful to have found these guys. They saved us so many headaches that come with moving.

Mr. Andrew went well above his pay grade, and I mean that in the most good way. We had hired him for a busy Saturday and somehow he managed to squeeze us in. We told him that our home has alot of glass furniture and antiques and that we request only professionals as they cannot be replaced, he diligently listened and assured my wife and I that there will be only professionals at our home. When the movers arrived they were clean, professional looking gentlemen. We decided to check out the truck before we started and to much of our surprise it was fully STOCKED. The driver then stated that Andrew had them put in 15 extra blankets and 4 extra cases of stretch wrap and to make sure that everything was going to be fully protected and absolutely no damage should be done. This kind of care in the customer is what I like most about local companies. Customers I highly recommend Andrew, I'm hooked on his service and you better expect that I'll have everyone i know hooked as well. But a fair tip for future clients: We had all of our antiques and expensive items insured by an actual insurance company as movers carry only basic valuation, Mr Andrew was very specific about that, I'm glad he let us know because valuation is 60 cents? per damaged pound. Anyways go for this company! James and Marie

Moving went smoothly and great! Both guys were friendly and efficient. The only hiccup was with the start time. The movers thought we were starting at 7am, but it was scheduled for 9am. I rushed to my old apartment since they were already there, and didn't want them to have to wait or reschedule. Maybe a confirmation call the night before versus the day of so there's no confusion?

The best! My job was the job from hell! My ceiling fan was missing pieces, he ran to the store to buy the parts for me and refused to take my cash. Came back to finish job and the remote to my ceiling fan was broken. On top of all of my issues my house is wired really janky and all he wanted to do was help me and solve my problems. I felt terrible about everything, I apologized profusely and he was so kind courteous and understanding the entire time. He definitely knows his stuff when it comes to electricity. I will use him again and again if he's willing to come back to my house! 100% recommend!!!!!!!!

I would highly recommend Larry's Quality Moving! Larry was extremely responsive and professional in his work. I appreciate that he took proper care and handled my belongings with respect rather than carelessly throw them around as most movers do. Larry was also very honest in his pricing- upon completion, the total for my move ended up being less than what he had originally quoted me, so he gave me the lower/correct rate instead of trying to bend the rules and overcharge me! Thanks again, Larry!

The entire experience was flawless. The two movers that came to help were clean and very helpful. They made sure all the glass was wrapped and ensured that all furniture was strapped in truck. They moved us as though they were moving their own items. I would recommend them without thought. Thanks for the experience from the Admin person Garina to the two men that moved us. Moving is usually not a good experience but you all made it much better.

Ian arrived on time, did a quick review of the job and started in right away. The windows, screens and window tracks were all professionally cleaned. We're very happy with the results. He was very neat working inside our house and he also pointed out a few potential flaws with the newer windows we just had installed. In summary, we are very happy with the job done at a reasonable price.

The amazing reviews speak for themselves. I chose Qshark Moving (based on Thumbtack reviews) for my in-Orange county move recently, and I couldn't be happier. From the time I requested an estimate to wrapping up the move, I was a very happy customer. For starters, I knew these guys would be more honest and legit than other moving companies; they asked me for an inventory of my home, as well as entrances to both my old and current homes, which the other movers did not request. So I felt that their estimate, while higher than other movers I've used in the past, was more honest and accurate. The communication with management (Malcolm in particular) was above and beyond. My actual moving team (managed by Alfredo) was simply amazing. They were down-to-earth, easy to talk to, professional, helpful, and FAST. My entire move, including driving time, was 3.5 hours. Alfredo even helped out taking apart my crib and putting it back together for no additional charge. And his team helped carry some large items I was trashing to the garbage - without hesitation. I know they saw some embarrassing items laying around as well (haha), but they were professional and didn't say anything. Moving is already a super stressful event, it really helps to have really cool movers who go above and beyond to help you. I didn't feel like I was getting ripped off in any way, and the guys made me feel super comfortable. I moved from Seattle to California in 2012, and that was a horrific experience. These guys really changed my mind and trusted moving companies again, I would highly recommend anyone to spend a little more and go with these guys. I am going to recommend them to all of my friends and colleagues.

I hired Muscle Movers to move an upright piano. They had a competitive and reasonable price for a quick but difficult job. I noticed immediately how professional and courteous Christopher was over the phone and decided to hire them. The day of the move, they arrived 15 minutes early and completed the job quickly yet carefully. I would hire Muscle Movers again and will also recommend them to anyone that needs a great moving company.

The company called to verify our appointment the day before. The movers were on time. They were organized and had all of the right tools, like boxes and wraps. Very efficient, they knew their business. They were very friendly and very reasonable for top notch service. I will definitely use them again.

We had our floors refinished and needed to move furniture out of a few rooms into another room. I got many quotes that were expensive for this type of job. PTM Movers were reasonable and helpful. Dave is super-responsive and got back to me right away. The guys showed up on time and did the job very well. We're having them come back to move everything back into place. If you need a mover you can rely on, give PTM a call!

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.

Just finished our move with this company and besides a few hiccups with miscommunication through (Chris or Alex the dispatchers or owners, not really sure who I was talking to the whole time) we are pretty pleased. First I chatted back and fourth on Yelp about the price quote and he had scheduled me and never told me what time so I had to call and approve the time since he just assumed his chosen time would work with me and never told me what time it was. Then I made it very clear I needed 30 minute notice before the guys show up, since my stuff was in a storage and I would have to have time to meet them there to let them in. Somehow, even though I had called him multiple times from my cell phone he managed to write it down wrong. Therefore I was not informed the movers were coming until they were there and I called the company and they called them to get the correct number. Anyhow we were VERY VERY PLEASED WITH CYLE AND ELIO as our movers, they were FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT and VERY PROFESSIONAL. They moved some very heavy things of ours with a long walking distance to the upstairs apartment and were really great, I just wish we knew we could have used 3 guys to take some of the load off these two and get it done a bit quicker. Lastly, the company did meet us in the middle and started our time 15 minutes later because of the mishap in the beginning, which saved me 30

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.
