Frank responded to my request right away. I chose Frank due to his proximity to me and his lower cost compared to other movers. After seeing how hard he worked and the care he took to make sure nothing was damaged, we were happy to pay him more than he asked. He is friendly, a bit chatty (but likeable), professional and he worked hard. Then he drove our large recycle items to the recycle center for us. We would definitely hire Frank again.

Dalila was extremely helpful in coordinating between the movers and I, she also had a quick response time. Jesse and Frankie were friendly and super fast in helping me move, we managed to load and unload at three different locations in about two hours. Would definitely recommend them and also use them again the next time I move!

What a great experience it was having 5 Star Movers work with us. They worked their butts off and everything was perfect clean and nothing was damaged or scratched. Everything about our moving experience with these guys was positive and most importantly for us : painless and stress-free. We will be using them for another big move for my family in couple of months.

Tony and his associates were very professional. Not only were they very reasonably priced but they did an excellent job. We originally hired them to move our piano. Not only did they move it, but they allowed us to add other furniture for a very reasonable price. Everything was delivered and put in the correct place. Thank you 101 Movers for making this move painless.

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.

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.

We used My American Movers for a local move recently. They showed up promptly at our apartment at the agreed upon time to start the move. All items were moved with the utmost care, and the staff were all very polite and respectful. All furniture was wrapped up in packing blankets to prevent damage. Even my huge TV made the move without a scratch. All in all a great experience! Glad I didn't do this myself!

I have moved many times and Happy Home Moving company is the best I've ever had. The office staff responded immediately to my inqiry about their services. On the day of the move the movers called 30 minutes before arriving just like they said they would. Upon arrival, the crew got straight to work and didn't dilly daddle at all. The movers were very conscientious and wrapped everything requiring extra protection. I will definitely hire these movers for my next move.

I called around for movers to help me with a Sunday move. I decided to go with New Life Moving because they had affordable/fair pricing and easy booking. I also liked how they didn't have hidden fees and charge a ton of extras. They do have a 3 hour minimum but I think that's pretty standard if you call around. It ended up taking around 4 hours and 15 minutes for the entire job. When it came to moving day, the movers had called me when they were on their way to the house. We had the pleasure to work with Abel and Eugene. Both guys were professional and hard-working. I have a thing for efficiency and they were working at a nice pace and were extra careful with our furniture/personal items. They wrapped up the furniture to make sure they wouldn't get scuffed/damaged and also had some boxes for us to use for our clothes. The truck that they came with was very large and we probably didn't even fill half of it. They packed up our smaller boxed items into a larger box they had as well. We had an extra stop for a pickup before our final drop-off and they were very helpful during it since it was a bit more difficult with the maneuvering and messy space. Abel and Eugene had good attitudes the whole time and didn't take any breaks. They were kind and very easy to work with. We definitely would use them again in the future. Fair pricing, efficient, professional and easy!

I chose Roadrunner because they responded to my request quickly and gave me the confidence they would do the job within budget. On the move day they let me know they were on their way 30 mins prior to their arrival and showed up within the window of time promised. You get a text confirmation the day prior. The move was completed under the estimated time. The movers were courteous, professional, and worked quickly. Jason, the owner, also checked in periodically to ensure the quality of the work being performed. Do not think twice about hiring Roadrunner for your move. They are good people doing good work, and I would hire them again. Thank you.

I was only moving a couple of miles and needed movers for my furniture and other large items. I looked up for movers in my area and they came up so I gave them a call. Felix was very professional over the phone and it sounds like he had lots of experience, so I gave them a shot. Samuel and Enrique arrived in the time window I was given and called me 30 minutes ahead of time to give me an ETA. Both of them were friendly, professional and on task. And they surprised me by being right on within the time window I was told I'd be charged by Felix in my original call. In short, I couldn't be happier. I will definitely use them in the future and I'll be recommending them highly to anyone who needs movers.

Joshua should consider changing the name of his company to…”Angel Movers” Moving is one of the most difficult things I had ever experience the whole process is a nightmare mentally fiscally and emotionally overwhelming but Joshua and his crew made it happen in a way I will never forget. Thank YOU I have to say that I lived in the City of Angels for 24 years…ironically on my last day in this city/country I ran into my first Angels 5 Stars is not enough to even try to give a fair review…I will try to be short in a review that I could actually write a book about On may 31-2016 We had a confirmed schedule of a shipping container to go overseas, for the last month I had store my house and my husband’s office in a container in a city of Lancaster, so I hired Joshua to do the transfer of the 40 foot storage container to the 40 foot shipping container at 12 noon, everything was logistically schedule to leave the country next day a 3am… Ohhh well when everything can go wrong it will go wrong…by the time we arrive in Lancaster we got the news that the container will be arriving at 3 PM…so already we are running against the clock with a moving company waiting….Joshua was kind enough to re- schedule last minute at 3pm without any charge…OK….3 pm came… container is no show…we have to be in LAX in few hrs and my whole life is sitting in a container in the middle of nowhere….I was breaking down, stress on high alert I felt that my mouth twitching …I had to call back Joshua to give him the news …no container till 7pm…at this point Im crying…planning on cancel flights and booking a hotel for my family…what Joshua said next was just an Angel taking to my ears… “Are you OK?” do you have a place to wait around? It is 100 F out there… I broke down and cry of gratitude on the phone, and he just simply say …If you guys need a place please come to my house…everything is going to be OK So we did, my husband and I drove to his place… He welcome us like we were family, reconfirmed us that no matter what everything will be Ok and that his crew will be ready to do the move no matter what 7:30 pm. We got the call…container is finally on location. Joshua and his crew came…it was already dark…we used the high car beams to light the storage and 3hrs later the move was done…Joshua and his professional crew made the impossible done in the worst imaginable conditions…in those hrs waiting for the container and through the move I got my faith back on God and good people…people who do good simply because is the right thing to do. By 11pm we were out of Lancaster with all our lives in a container in a way to the port…All this was just possible thanks to Joshua and his awesome crew. We were just on time to pick up our bags and head over to LAX…. We made it!!!!!!! Im forever thankful THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

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.
