WOW is the best word I can use to describe my experience with MGB movers. Mario and his crew were careful with all our furniture and powered through one of the hottest days of the year so far. I would not hesitate to recommend them for a move--big or small. We couldn't be more pleased.

Wesley and his crew did a fantastic job and met all of my expectations. They were a bit late due to uncontrollable circumstances, but Wesley was constantly in touch with me via both text and phone. I didn't mind the lateness because of how great his communication was. He never left me hanging or wondering, which I appreciated very much. It was an incredibly hot day, but they worked quickly and without complaint. I have a very large, very long sofa that needed to fit up a stairwell and into an apartment with a tricky, narrow doorway. While it took some time (and some convincing on my part that it could indeed be done), Wesley and his team got my sofa in and where I wanted it. I could not have been happier. Shift It Moving was an excellent choice, the right choice. They were friendly, efficient, smart and kind. I could not have found better movers. Thanks, Wesley!

This was my first time hiring movers and Tony's guys were great! Tony was very helpful with scheduling movers with less than 24 hours notice. His guys were on time and fully prepared (moving pads, crates, dollies, etc) with a large truck. They were incredibly fast (and safe), getting the job done so much faster than if I had done it myself.

Frank is the most professional, kind, courteous, polite, trusting, reliable and careful movers I've ever worked with. First, I must share with you that in the past 30 years, I've probably moved approximately 12 times using other companies. In each one of those moves, at least one appliance was damaged and something special was broken that couldn't be fixed or replaced. Frank is the first mover I've ever worked with who handled each and every item with very special care and DID NOT damage or break one item. In my book, that is one the most important things you want in a mover. I was also very impressed with how quick he was in responding to my request for a mover and his extremely fair pricing. He also followed up several times before the move to make sure he had every item required to make my move successful and smooth. He arrived at the exact time we arranged to start the move and worked non-stop until the move was complete. And, when the move was finished, he had me check each room to make sure I was completely satisfied and happy that every item was exactly where I needed it to be. And, one of the most impressive things Frank did that no other moving company has ever done, he made a follow-up call the day after the move to make sure I was happy with the move and if there was anything else I needed that was overlooked. Of course, I didn't need him any further as he did everything perfectly the day of the move. That is true professionalism! I only wish everyone I deal with in business was like Frank. My life would be happier and stress free. I recommend Frank to anyone who is looking for an outstanding moving company. Thank you, Frank, for such a great job. You are an amazing person and you did an amazing job!

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?

I didn't have a moving company that I knew would be fair and available. I did my research online but came up empty handed. A few days before my move I searched Yelp and found " Thumbtack". Thumbtack connected me with" Larry Quality Movers". Within 30 minutes ( it seemed less ) I received an email response. Larry asked me someone questions on my move and we were able to set up the exact time and place to move me. The day before the move Larry contacted me to reconfirm the time and location. The next day Larry & Dean were at my place prompt. Very smoothly they moved my things out. They got to my new location before I was there and were really to get my things moved inside. Larry and Dean are as professional as they come. They are fair with their pricing no nickel and diming you. You get the exact price that you are quoted, not like some of the other movers adding last minutes things. Larry and Dean thank you for such excellent service I will definitely let others know about your service it was a pleasure working with you!

I called 5 star after another mover canceled on me unexpectedly. They took my call right away and found a time that worked the next day. The two movers that came were good and kept the job at the 3 hour minimum. Would highly recommend them for any move as they are up front about pricing and include everything you need for a smooth move.

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.

First let me say this has been a very difficult long distance move for myself and my family. Allen & his guys were beyond great and lifted so much weight off our shoulders. The window of pick up was easy and when they delivered our furniture & boxes everything was the same way, no damages or scratches! The guys were friendly, fast & professional. I definitely have recommended Cloud9 Movers to a few people who are in the moving process as well.

Honestly I would recommend these guys over and over again. I called them with a 24 hour notice of moving a 1bdr and they were the only moving company to be able to accommodate my needs. I had Edward and Sergei as my movers and these guys were professional, friendly and hard working and made this whole stressful situation into a more relaxing experience. They handled my belongings with great care and took the time to make sure I understood all that was being done.

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 !!!!!!!!!!!

Appointment arrival time was between 7-9am. Four packers arrived at 7:45am and quickly realized that I am a packrat and hadn't pre-packed anything, and therefore needed a full pack, so the lead guy quickly called and asked their home base to send more help. He assured me that they would try their best to get it all done today, and they started right away. I don't remember all their names, but I do remember Micah, because he and the lead guy had to carry the heaviest stuff. The fifth guy arrived at around 1pm, and between the five of them, they packed up ALL of our stuff. And it was A LOT OF STUFF - big, heavy furniture and small stuff strewn all over. For them to pack up a 3-bedroom/3 bath (extremely cluttered) home in 9 hours was a bit of a miracle. They even carefully wrapped and boxed everything, took pictures of all the stuff they packed and now I can see pictures of all my "inventory." To top it off, the movers were super polite, nice, careful and efficient.

We’ve moved a lot and have never used movers ... mainly because we have six sons and I have Scottish (frugal) husband. But with this move I decided to look into movers. I use thumbtack for the first time and was connected with DOWNTOWN MOVERS. They responded immediately, offered a competitive rate, and worked with me on scheduling. JOE and ADAM arrived and were absolutely amazing! I can’t say enough positive things about these two. I will never move without them again! I highly recommend this company for anyone doing any kind of move.

Even in 95+ degrees and close to a quarter mile of truck to door, these guys didn't slow or get down, they just got it done. Thank you Veteran Movers, we were luck to have you getting our backs!

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.
