Mario and his team did an awesome job. They packed, moved and unpacked for my local move. They were prompt and worked quickly and carefully. I am very thankful for the way their efforts helped eliminate a great deal of the stress that moving can bring. The rates were fairly competitive and well worth paying, to avoid the hassles of a DIY project.

I hired Shift It for a local move within Los Angeles. They were wonderful to work with. They were on time, efficient, courteous, flexible, and focused on getting the job done. We worked directly with Wesley - he asked all the right questions and took direction well. Prompt, fast, courteous, and detail oriented. All items arrived at our new home undamaged and without any issues. Would highly recommend.

Excellent local moving experience with Chris and Steve from Tony's delivery and labor. Tony called to confirm the day before the move and even checked in with me at the halfway point. I would definitely use this service again.

I couldn't be happier! Frank is extremely professional, he knows what he's doing and his rates are fantastic. Plus he's a extremely friendly guy--an attribute that can take a lot of stress away when moving into a new space and trying to assemble furniture etc. He was communicative throughout the day, showed up early and built a fairly complex IKEA bed in less than two hours. All at a great rate!! I could not recommend Frank enough. Thanks again sir!!

I am the type of person who fastidiously researches before I act. When my family and I were moving back into our home post-renovation, I researched all the local moving companies through thumbtack. I made my usual spreadsheet with prices, reviews, licensed vs. insured, years in business & whether background checked; and reached out to my top choices. The family business News Moving Company quickly became my obvious first choice. From start to finish, Delila handled each & every question and concern I had with patience & diligence. She was very responsive and reasonable. Their reviews speak for themselves: over 90% are 5-Star reviews. They understood better than any my unique situation of not needing to move from one place to another, but rather move from Pods in my driveway back into my home. On the day of the move, Frank, Jesse, and one other mover showed up on time. The move was amazing - they were fast, yet super careful & conscientious. They handled our unique situation as if they’d done it a million times and kept in communication throughout. Unlike other companies in the past, they didn’t dilly-dally or stretch the time. They finished in the quoted minimum time and charged the exact fair price we had discussed. I highly endorse and would recommend News Moving to any friend, loved one, or reader like you! You will not be disappointed.

My originally planned movers did not show up and Hector with Vazquez moving was able to put together a crew to move me into my home at the last minute. The crew was meticulous in protecting my belongings and were very careful not to damage my home moving out and moving in. Mosley is a great crew lead and you'll be lucky to have them manage your move. I would recommend them ... they are good people and did a great job!

I was extremely pleased with my experience with David Harkins and Venture Concepts. He came in with the lowest quote by far but the move from San Clemente to San Diego went effortlessly and was done with extreme care . He is a true professional and great guy. I will recommend him highly for any of my future moving needs.

He moved a large, heavy credenza. It was turned down by 3 charitable organizations that wasted my time by assuring me on the phone it would be removed, but each time their movers rejected it. Brett is careful, professional and pleasant.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

I was looking for a local moving company in South Orange County and came across Safe N Fast Movers. I checked and called a few others as well and compared their rates and fees. Safe N Fast made me feel the most comfortable because they answered my questions clearly and were pretty straight forward regarding what my rates would be, no surprises. Safe N Fast also came recommended from my Mom's neighbor, Dave, who did a move to Irvine from Laguna Beach. That was a huge move with multiple trucks and 6 or 7 movers, but mine was pretty small, just 6.5 hours. My wife was happy that they put all of our beds together, so we did not have to deal with that as we still had a lot unpacking to do. Something I thought was cool, that Safe N Fast provided the wardrobe boxes which probably saved us an enormous amount of time, as all the clothing from the closets was magically transferred on the hangers from our old apartment to the new condo. So if anyone needs movers, Safe N Fast can do the job. Gary Forhane

This was my first time using movers and if I move again I will definitely do it again. The two gentlemen showed up right on time and went straight to work. They were very responsive leading up to the move and on the day of they got in and out very quickly. They were careful with all of my furniture and placed everything right where I wanted it. It was a great experience.

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.
