Mr. Rodarte was a LIFESAVER!. I had this recliner that I needed to get rid of. I called a bulk moving company who wanted to me detach the recliner and leave it outside on the curb for a pickup. Well, I am a senior citizen, living alone, so that was out of the question. I contacted a pickup service (ex: Goodwill, Salvation Army) who assigned me a date, but it would be up to the discretion of the driver whether or not to take it, and I needed it OUT! I was desperate, so I did a search engine request for a Handyman and came across Thumbtack. My request was answered in 2 hrs. by Mr. Rodarte. He was wonderful! He told me "no problem, I will take care of it". My prayers had been answered. He was at my apt. on time, picked up that recliner, (no detaching) and left. I feel I have made a new friend with Mr. Rodarte and would recommend him highly! I know I will use him in the future again. Thank you so much Thumbtack. You really delivered

I am the type of person who fastidiously researches before I act. When my family and I were moving back into our home post-renovation, I researched all the local moving companies through thumbtack. I made my usual spreadsheet with prices, reviews, licensed vs. insured, years in business & whether background checked; and reached out to my top choices. The family business News Moving Company quickly became my obvious first choice. From start to finish, Delila handled each & every question and concern I had with patience & diligence. She was very responsive and reasonable. Their reviews speak for themselves: over 90% are 5-Star reviews. They understood better than any my unique situation of not needing to move from one place to another, but rather move from Pods in my driveway back into my home. On the day of the move, Frank, Jesse, and one other mover showed up on time. The move was amazing - they were fast, yet super careful & conscientious. They handled our unique situation as if they’d done it a million times and kept in communication throughout. Unlike other companies in the past, they didn’t dilly-dally or stretch the time. They finished in the quoted minimum time and charged the exact fair price we had discussed. I highly endorse and would recommend News Moving to any friend, loved one, or reader like you! You will not be disappointed.

I have never taken the time to write a review, however 5 star moving was worth my time. I can honestly say that I have had my fare share of dealing with moving companies from United Van lines to hiring local workers in front of Home Depot. I have moved so many times in my life from west coast to east coast and all over California. In addition to all of my moving experiences this is why I would highly recommend 5 Star Moving company. I was first recommended by my storage company (Magellan Storage) in DT LA about this company. I spoke to mike over the phone, he was polite and extremely professional. He was very prompt in returning my calls and emails. I explained the amount of furniture in my storage unit and he was able to email me a contract with in the day. In comparison to 2 other moving companies he was reasonable and seemed to be the most honest. When 5 Star arrived I was surprised to see how their conduct and appearance were professional. Not to mention how calm there energy felt as a team. What I appreciated most was how careful they handle my furniture and how their attention to detail in pointing out existing flaws or scratches on my furniture. All in all they are truly good at what they do.

Very professional and friendly moving company. I really enjoyed their service. They came with the packing material and necessary tools. They nicely wrapped and boxed everything and carefully loaded on the truck. They have completed the move within the estimated time and asked me to check the inventory. I checked everything and I was really fortunate because I did not find anything damaged or broken or missing. It was a perfect move which cost me a very reasonable amount. I highly recommend Flash Moving

Hired Frank and his guys for a move. Liked the fact that he stopped by for an estimate first, so when it came time to quote me a price there were no surprises. They were there when they said they were going to be and everyone on the crew were hard workers. If your moving and you don't at least give Frank a shot to earn your trust, you might be left out in the cold.

I was moving from Oxnard Ca to Las Vegas Nevada 4 bedroom + garage and backyard patio. I recieved quotes from various moving companies stating that my belongins would needed to be loaded into an 18 wheeler and they did not do next day deliver so i had to wait a week for my furniture. I was under the pressure of moving quick and I needed my items within a week(I run a business from home) delivered to my house out there in Vegas. I was told that i was asking for an unreasonable request from various company representatives. So in a last effort I went on Craigslist hoping to find someone to help me. Sure enough I did. I called 101 relocation services and spoke to Tony, he sent me a link to his thumbtack page, I had seen that they had strong reviews. With the exception of the 2 one star reviews, I decided to take a chance. I called Tony and he was quick to assess my situation. He was able to come the next day and load up a 28 foot truck no problem. Everything got wrapped and stacked properly into the trailer. I have moved variouse times and I can tell when there is quality work being done and these guys sure have. My items got delivered the next day around 10 am safely. The move was done so efficient and quickly that I tipped the guys very generously, They had saved me a couple thousand so the least i could do was return the favor. I was glad to have found 101 relocation services they live up to their name. I would definitely recommend these guys. Thank you Tony and his helpers.

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.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

This was a "rush" job, though I am sure they all are, when you are moving out. This is a start up company. I knew when they arrived, they had already been working, and working hard. There was no fancy van or truck driving up with them. Did I get my monies worth? Absolutely! They spent a few hours on my cleaning and seemed fully invested. Were a few minor things missed- yes, but nothing of tangible note. Would I ask them back? Yes! They are doing everything right. P.S. my neighbors have nicknamed your van the "sticker van". Thank you, to you both! :)

This was my first time hiring a moving company. Sergei and Edward were very punctual, courteous, friendly and extremely efficient. They wrapped all necessary furniture in blankets and saran wrap to protect it from damage. They brought a huge truck that had more than enough space. I moved into a three story town home, 50 miles away, and they got the work done in 3-4 hours. My door way is a bit narrow with a lot of stairs, but they managed to move in all my stuff without damaging anything. Even though it was a hot day they hustled the entire time. I would highly recommend their services to any of my friends, and would definitely use them for the future. Thanks again for making my move easy!

After another moving company backed out a few short days before my move, I contacted Ben Hur hoping for a miracle. And they delivered. They accepted the job on short notice. They arrived at my place the day of the move and just powered right through it, even when there were a few things I realized I had forgotten to mention. To top it off, the pricing was more than reasonable. In the future, I will not scramble around trying to find movers. I will go right to Ben Hur without hesitation. Thank you guys!

They were excellent communicators, efficient and cheerful! Had a 50 mile move completed in one day. They arrived on time, keeping me well informed with phone calls, wrapped all my furniture and loaded boxes and furniture into truck, and then unloaded everything in one day for my one bedroom. Everything arrived in great shape and I felt well taken care of. Would definitely hire again.

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

I was referred to this company by friend who used them twice in a past and now I know why :) Not only they were super professional, fast with great work ethic but also very polite and friendly! My whole move took little under 5 hours considering tons of things both packed and unpacked, not to mention garage full of toys and random nick-nacks. Honestly, it felt like as if I was getting moved by friends. Price is very affordable but you get top notch service which is priority when shopping for a moving companies. Also, Eric at the office was extremely helpful and patient when I tortured him with jillions of questions. Highly recommend! Thank you guys for your hard work and positive attitude you made my life much easier today!

Dear Clutter and all potential customers, This is the best moving experience I've ever had. Ideally, a moving company will treat your valuables as their own: They Do! The person who set up my quote was knowledgeable, polite, and efficient. Furthermore, the prices are reasonable. My moving team was Kainon D, Denez H, Ralph S, and Manuele T. They were careful, efficient, and polite. They can pack, take apart, and reassemble anything you need. If I ever move again, I will use this company. If you're moving and in the Seattle/Tacoma area, you should use this company. Other companies will try to purposely slow down to hit you in the pocket book, Not Clutter. My moving team treated my whole move like they were moving their own family. That's Rare and Great!!!! Moving is a stressful experience and by definition it uproots your life. The Clutter Team took the stress out of my move and I appreciate it! They treated my valuables with care! 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.

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.
