Mario and his crew just moved me and my belongings from Ventura CA to Eugene OR. In a word, Mario's service was superb! He and his crew are professional in demeanor and in the quality of their work, from packing and protecting to loading to transporting to unloading and placing items within the new house. This move was 900 miles and it took Mario and his crew just over 30 hours to complete the job from start to finish. He was prompt, went well beyond that which I expected as he suggested a number of ways to better pack my belongings and did things for me that were not contracted for. Mario and his crew are polite and thoughtful, and simply good people. I recommend Mario Borjas and MGB Relocations in the utmost terms and without any reservations. I have already recommended him to friends, and if I move again, I will call upon Mario to help me do so. Thank you Mario, Erik, and Juan! Kipp Preble, Eugene, OR

The team worked hard to get us out of our old place and into our new one in a timely and efficient manner. We did packing of most of our belongings they wrapped and were careful with wrapping and protecting our artwork and furniture pieces that required special care. The team was friendly but not wasting time. I would have confidence recommending them for a solid no frills move.

Tony and his moving crew did a wonderful job moving my beloved piano! I could not have asked for a better job! They were hardworking, professional, understanding, and took very good care when they were packing the piano up! Also, he was always very easy to get in touch with...I really appreciate his help and will definitely be using Tony's with all of my moving needs in the future!

1) Communication was outstanding. From the time I accepted Frank’s bid he made sure he had all the information he needed to facilitate an extremely smooth move. He offered suggestions that were very helpful to make things easier on our part. 2) Punctual. He and his foreman arrived exactly as promised. He thoroughly reviewed the layout of our new space with us so they would know where to put out things once the truck arrived. 3) Efficient. The truck was unload in the most efficient manner and everything moved into the space in an organized manner so we had a very easy time locating exactly what we needed as we unpacked. 4) Careful. NOTHING was broken or damaged. They were very careful with both our belongings and new home. They made sure floors were covered and protected. They even protected the concrete on the driveway so it wouldn’t get damaged by the unloading ramp. 5) Professional. Frank obviously has a lot of moving experience. He could not have made things easier for us. They even removed all the boxes and packing materials we had unpacked before they left. They moved furniture around for us, with a smile, after we changed our mind on it’s placement. I overhead our truck driver ask Frank for a business card because he was so impressed that he wanted to recommend him to people. Frank has a great work ethic and a lot of pride in what he does. His goal was to make our move as easy as possible and to ensure we were happy with his work. I definitely recommend Frank and will hire him again for our next move.

I highly recommend News Moving Co. to anyone looking for a quick and painless move. I had a great experience starting with receiving the initial, and very affordable quote to signing the final paperwork once my move was completed. Dalila was fast to respond while scheduling and provided outstanding customer service. The movers were also very nice and efficient. I will definitely use their services again in the future!

Very professional (both Larry and Dean). I couldn't get them to take a break, they just kept moving. Hire them, you will not be disappointed.

Flash moving did a great job getting us moved. They were 15-20 minutes later than we expected but they made sure to text us and let us know so it was fine. 3 guys showed up and they worked their hearts out all day long. They moved a 3 bedroom house in 6 hours. Nothing was damaged and they did a great job wrapping everything. I have a hutch that has glass doors that I was worried about but they made sure it was moved without even a scratch! Our living area and bedrooms are upstairs so a TON of stuff had to go upstairs. They didn't complain once about having to take so much upstairs. They were fast, efficient and so polite. 3 guys for $119 an hour is a really good deal. All the packing supplies, gas and insurance were included so there were no hidden costs. The only thing I would say was a negative and it wasn't that big of a deal was some of the wrapped furniture didn't get unwrapped (2 pieces, so not a lot) and they did leave the plastic that they did take off in the garage rather than taking it with them. Very minor issues though. Hoping I never have to use them again but I would definitely recommend them!

I needed to move my piano from a house I was about to rent and I needed it ASAP. Alex was very easy to communicate with. He moved my piano out quickly, effectively and safely to my new house. I would definitely recommend his services to move a piano or move in general. He was very friendly and a pleasure to work with.

I found them on Thumbtack and Michael and Mot did a very good job moving my apartment across town. They were very hard workers and did everything from packing my hanging clothes, wrapping all my furniture, and even fit my couch through a doorway that seemed impossible to fit through. .  Overall, they got the job done well, worked hard and took care of every part of getting my things from Point A to Point B.

Gayle and her assistant were delightful. I only gave them 2 hours to pack as much as possible. They were successful in packing 20 boxes of kitchen items. My only complaint is, my 2 very large Costco cooking oils were put on there sides instead of upright and the oil slowly poured out, saturating the entire bottom of the box and the box below that we stacked it on. Other than that, they did a satisfactory job.

Moober moving company does it all!!! Me and my wife were moving from our 3 bedroom home to another beautiful home in Malibu. They came on time which was a 8:30 am on a Sunday.( All my other movers I have choose In the past never showed up at that time!!!!)Moober has great customer service, they came in told them everything I needed to be moved and was going in the truck. That was it they did everything with safety and teamwork. All my furniture was professionally wrapped and put in the truck like Tetris!! Hahah. Moober company moves everything and anything. I have a real heavy Grand Piano and they were able to take it outside wrap it and fit it in truck with no problem. I thought the packing process was fast, but they proved me wrong when they unloaded everything and put it exactly how I wanted. Moober moving company is a great moving company and the best I dealt with. Thank you EJ!!!!!!!!!!!!

My movers just left and requested a review as quickly as possible. I assured them that I would provide then with a 9 out of 5 star rating. Most importantly, the young men were respectful to my husband and I. I am 67 years old so I was on the young men from start to finish - making sure they were respectful of my belongings and home. They wrapped all of my furniture and assisting with packing items that were not packed upon their arrival. I did notice a small hole in the wall at the pick up address. Tight corners so I did not complain. But I did want them to know that I noticed. Other than that, my belongings arrived in great shape. I will recommend to my friend Margaret who will be moving in about 2 weeks. I informed her to request Mark and Stephen. Thanks again for your hard work. Spend your tip wisely.

Amerapex was recommended to us by a friend. We thought we could do this move on our own but figured out in the middle of it we were going to need help. It wasn't just last minute it was during the move that we called for help and Alex was able to get a crew to us in no time!!! I cannot thank them enough and will recommend to anyone needing a moving service!

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.
