I recently moved into a 2 story condo and needed a SUPER heavy treadmill (True ES900) moved up into my bedroom. I googled "furniture assembly" online and put in a request through thumbtack. Lucky Movesit-LA Moving Labor Only 24/7 responded immediately and drove all the way out from LA to Orange County to give me an accurate quote. He preplanned the move meticulously, making sure his crew had the physical strength to handle the job, protected my staircase, and printed out the manual to ensure my treadmill was not only brought upstairs but properly assembled. Lucky is trustworthy and reliable and I would recommend him to anyone. I have never met anyone so passionate about helping others and making sure the job is done to perfection. Lucky was exceptional, going above and beyond!

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.

Nery was awesome. Very friendly and professional. Due to moving I had to reschedule my appointment at the last minute and he was very accommodating. He showed up right on time and did an excellent job of trimming my palm tree. Also pricing was very reasonable. I can't say enough good things about Nery's Tree Service and I will be using them again in the future.

Hiring movers was the best thing I've ever done and 5 Star Moving made it such an easy experience! I requested a quote to move from Carson, CA to Sacramento, CA, which is roughly 400 miles. After I reached out to them, Mike came to my apartment for an estimate. Just a few hours later I received an estimate in my email. I was looking at another moving company that my parents had used previously, who had quoted us a lower quote. 5 Star Moving matched the price when I asked them! A day before the move they confirmed with me via email and everything was ready to go. Mike and Azo were extremely professional, hardworking, and fast. They're very friendly and polite, but didn't waste time chitchatting. They moved my 800 sq ft apartment on the 3rd floor in under 2 hours and I was able to hit the road earlier than scheduled. They showed concern regarding the stress put on my cats while they were emptying the apartment, which I really appreciated. The guys wouldn't let me carry anything so I just sat back and relaxed! Before they left, they explained how many rest stops they would be taking and how long their breaks would be. On the road, they kept me updated with ETAs through text. Of course since they were driving a truck I beat them to Sacramento, but I wasn't worried since I knew exactly when I should be expecting them thanks to their updates. They unloaded the truck really quickly and nothing had been broken or damaged. They were no doubt tired, but said they were going back to LA the same night! With a total driving time of roughly 16 hours round trip for them, I really appreciate the quick and friendly service Mike and Azo provided. I would recommend these guys and 5 Star Moving 100%. The only thing I'm sad about is that they don't have a base in the Sacramento area so I can't hire them again the next time I move! =)

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.

Barry and his team of guys were amazing! My fiancé and I moved into a new house and we weren’t 100% sure about how we wanted the furniture arranged. These guys were totally happy to shift things around for us here and there until we were totally happy. Really amazing considering all the heavy lifting and hard work. I would most definitely use Flash moving again and will reconmend then to anyone I know who’s in the process of moving. Thanks again guys!

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.

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!

My American Movers was not the first Moving Company that I hired. The first one was a company full of clowns and robbers. They don't have any thing good, all things that I can remember in them was their unkindness and rudeness over us while the moving is on progress. Thank God somebody recommended My American Movers. In fact, Gerson Sarmiento was their on the moving to check that the moving was going well and his men won't screw things. I never had hired this kind of company before. You can see their dedication and passion on the work. The professionalism was their, the even got humor when we are moving my things. The BEST MOVING COMPANY IN MY AREA!

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.

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!

What didn't we like is better question! This was our first time using Roadrunner and we were most impressed with their professionalism. We had a complex move that required a bunch of different moving parts and they were able to accommodate everything. They were efficient, fast, great problem solvers and very friendly the entire time. We will be using them ever move going forward. Lastly I would like to mention that we trusted them which is a big deal when you let strangers in your home :)

I would highly recommend this company to anyone! I was left high and dry on a Friday afternoon at the end of the month by another moving company. I spoke to Felix that same day and he was able to set me up for the next morning! From the initial call and follow up to the actual movers-Marvin and Caesar-everything was handled efficiently and professionally. I also had to move approximately 100 miles away and everything was handled seamlessly. This company saved me and insured I was into my new home and ready to start my new job on time. Call them! You will be glad you did.

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

How do you avoid stress when you’re moving... Hire GLOBAL TREE LOGISTICS CORP! From the moment they responded to my inquiry, to the time they unloaded the last box, everything was super easy and simply...simple. I don’t know how Benjamin and his crew are able to have such great attitudes and work so professionally... in 100+ degrees weather... AND having me, a total stress-ball, as a client. Thanks to Benjamin and Global Tree, our move was effortless. Nothing was damaged, everything was protected wonderfully, and they were nothing less than respectful... not to mention extremely reasonably priced! Thank you! Thank you! 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 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.
