Jesse and Frankie were my movers. First, I requested the News Moving Co. with Dalila, and she is very promptly and responsiveness to my messages. I ordered TWO pick up points which were my apartment and my boyfriend apartment. So, it is very helpful for both of us that we have people help us move all our belonging and furniture because we both don't know how to drive, and this is our first time renting an apartment together. Then, we do not actually know how to put all stuffs fit in one car. Jesse and Frankie are very professional, trustful, liable and punctual as I made an appointment. I did not​ have a chance to check up on them when they moved my stuff into my new apartment. I was surprised by how they organized the boxes. They did an excellent job. I am so happy and grateful that I found News Moving Co. I would recommend News Moving Co. to my friends or others who need help for moving. Thank you for your services! - Fiona

I called them on a thursday evening, and they were on my doorstep the next morning at 8:30 am on the dot. The two gentlemen hustled efficiently and had everything packed up in good time. Nothing was damaged, all furniture was wrapped and protected with care. Unloading was even faster than packing up! Both movers were fast, efficient, kind, and it was the best moving experience I've had.

My two movers showed up and got to work right away. Due to unannounced street repair, they had to park around the corner and didn’t miss a beat. They gladly helped me move some things that were going to charity and not even making the trip. The cost was the cheapest quoted and definitely worth every penny paid. I’ll definitely look to hire them on my next move.

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.

A special thank you to Mike and Shaw for their kindness and assistance through a difficult transition. They made it much easier. From the company's first point of contact holding my hand and easing my fears and being calm and comforting while the owners and movers went above and beyond my expectations by helping me get everything packed and safely shipped out even after I had to leave the area. I had 2 days to find help and get my things shipped. It was a very stressful event but Mike & Shaw took away a great deal of pressure and for that I am forever grateful and have nothing but warm feelings and good things to say.

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.

Just finished a move with these guys today and it was definitely a great experience.   Pre-move: The manager Li kept in constant contact with me to ensure that the appointment time would be correct.  I verified with them 2 days before and the day before to make sure we were still scheduled.  The day of the move which was today, they showed up exactly on time and prepared which was excellent: During Move:  The movers were great.  They came with all the required equiipment to get their job done quickly and efficiently.  They had dolly's, those 4 wheeled cart things, and a bonus blankets with tape to wrap up your valuable furniture.  They wrapped and protected the couches, TV's and mirrors to ensure that they survive the trip.  THey were also very quick to getting things out of my old apartment and into the movers truck, and finally into my new location. Overall, it was a great experience using these guys for your move.  They actual movers were super friendly and not sketch looking which made me a little more comfortable letting them handle my goods.  They defintely made the moving experience, which is already freaking stressful as it is, very simple and Im glad this whole ordeal is over. Thanks Guys!

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 had a simple, one-item move. The owner and movers were very easy to work with and handled my sofa quickly and carefully. I knocked a star off because they said they would be there at 3pm and arrived at 5pm. Also one of the movers reminded me that they work for tips. I understand that movers work really hard so I had already planned to give them one. As you can imagine, I was a bit turned off by that reminder.

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!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Amazing work by Ben for a very reasonable rate! I chose Ben because he was the most responsive, professional, and prepared - and it all turned out to be true! It's always nerve wracking to hire movers - you worry about time, the condition your stuff arrives in, the condition your door frame will be left in, etc. - but everything about my move with Global Tree Logisitics Corp was impressively worry free. The quote was no pressure. He was available short notice. He was timely. My stuff was delivered in perfect condition. I plan to use him for all my future moves! Thanks so much!

Really fast movers! They do not play around. They even showed up 10 minutes early (that literally never happened with any other moving company before) George and his helper moved my 2 bdr from Studio City to Irvine in 6 hours (plus double drive something). Not one lazy moment....they knocked that shit out lol Total was $700 which is damn near good price for how fast it was! Best moving and packing experience ever!

The guys picked up the piano at the pick up location at the time we agreed, they unloaded very carefully and even helped me make sure the piano didn’t scratch the floor. They were sweet to my kid and very friendly. 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 should you tip furniture movers?

Moving furniture is hard work and potentially dangerous unless you’re properly equipped. For anyone not ready to handle their heavy oak armoire alone, professional furniture movers can safely and efficiently move your items to another room in your house or across town as needed. The national average cost to hire heavy furniture movers is $150-$200 per hour. This rate could include multiple furniture movers working as a team to move items such as beds, armoires, billiards tables, pianos, shelves, tables, entertainment centers and more. Hourly rates can vary by region. If your furniture movers have arrived on time, done a great job, kept your home and belongings protected from scratches and dings, and completed the move as planned, a tip will be greatly appreciated. Moving companies suggest approximately 10 percent of the total bill as gratuity for those doing local moving jobs, which is also a good guideline for tipping heavy furniture movers. If the total bill for heavy moving was $100 and two workers were onsite, consider giving them $10 total, or $5 each for a job well done.

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.
