Due to crazy life circumstances, I had to make a quick, and stressful move. Tony was available to answer all of my questions, even though it was Memorial Day, and he was able to schedule me in for that Wednesday. The movers came on time, calmed my frantic self down, and handled business like the pros they are. The move took longer than expected, due to stairs and truck height restrictions, but at no time did the team slack. Everything was moved with great care, and consideration. We'll happily use Tony's again!

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!

They did an awesome job!!! I’ve hired a few movers before and they were the only ones who have been on time. They moved a 6 foot long couch for me over 10 miles and only took about an hour. Would definitely hire again!

Alex and his partner showed up on time, got our piano delivered quickly, and were a pleasure to work with. The rate they quoted was very competitive, and there were no extra fees tacked on, despite the fact that we had a tricky driveway situation. I highly recommend Alex's movers, and they'll be the first ones I call the next time I have any heavy moving to do.

This was the first time I ever used Thumbtack and if everyone is as great as Mike / C.M.N Construction, I'll be using this site a heck of a lot more. Right away Mike's bid stood out from the rest, I appreciated that he took the time and wrote exactly what he would be providing, time it would take and itemized the price. After selecting his bid, Mike immediately opened up communications without me first having to pester him. He worked with my crazy schedule and would always emailed me back immediately when I had a question. On the day of the move, he texted me in the morning to confirm our time, then again 15 minutes before arriving to let me know he would be on time. Mike and his partner were organized, fast and really cool when I asked if I could move even more than I originally anticipated. He even asked if I wanted more things moved without trying to upsell me on his bid price. At the final destination, Mike once again careful yet fast getting everything unloaded and neatly set-up in the new location. After finishing, he genuinely seemed surprised when I asked how much more I should add to the original price for all the extra work he performed. I really hate moving... but Mike and his partner made this experience so much easier. They were extremely professional, courteous and pleasant to be around. I would have no problem highly recommending them and plan on using his services again in the future. Mike, if you read this - thanks again for the great job and being such a great sport!

Although I was slightly nervous at first due to some of the negative comments on this page, my boyfriend and I decided to take a chance on Mike&Shaw due to their unbeatable price. We compared with 5 other moving companies in our area and they provided us with the lowest price for our move (more than $400 in savings). From the first comment/question regarding the move, Marie was very attentive and timely with her responses. She was very honest and direct regarding cost, supplies provided and overall expected time frame of our move. She contacted me several times during the move to ensure we were on track and that we had no concerns. In addition, all the movers who assisted us were also very professional and timely. 2 men moved us out in 4 hours (from a 3rd floor apartment with no elevator access) and 2 men moved us in in 2.5 hours (into a 2nd floor apartment with no elevator access). Very hard working and honest professionals. Only negative was the length of time it took the movers to drive the truck to our new apartment. Took them 9 hours (with a regular car usually is 5 hours) due to having to drop off/pick up different movers in the process. Despite this delay, we are definitely glad we took a chance on this company and will no doubt hire them again for future moves.

It was a pleasure working with Jordaz Cleaning Services. They were able to schedule me in at last minute, worked around several wrenches thrown that made it more difficult, stayed until THEY were convinced I was satisfied, and did it all with a smile and kind word. I do not have enough positive things to say about them.

I do not know where to start of. Ed and David we're amazing. They moved me safe,fast,and for a low cost. I can see why they call this company the Safe and Fast Movers. The next time I will ask again if this company will move me next time also because the company I used before made the move very slow, broke my table, and tried to rip me off for almost 100 dollars and they were not paying for my broken table. Thank you Safe and Fast Movers!

Jerry was able to paint my side yard fence as soon as I contacted him. He was prompt, actually a few minutes early. He even went to Home Depot to pick up some wood to fix the fence. He went right to work, completed the job within a fee hours, and cleaned up afterwards. Jerry did a great job, and I would recommend and use him again.

Old heavy couch removal from a corporate apartment. I had last minute job that had to be taken care of in 2 days. They were responsive, accommodating, professional, very pleasant, on time, AND their price was the best. For a same job I got a bid of more than 3+ of the cost. .. :0 No hesitation in recommending and I probably will use them for another job for myself (my residence).

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.
