Our movers were great. They communicated with me before the move to make sure they brought everything they would need for our move. They were running 15 minutes late on the day of the move, but gave us a heads up. The two movers were efficient, worked hard and got the job done well. They were also pleasant and in good spirits the whole time which made moving day a little more tolerable. Thank you!

Frank is the most professional, kind, courteous, polite, trusting, reliable and careful movers I've ever worked with. First, I must share with you that in the past 30 years, I've probably moved approximately 12 times using other companies. In each one of those moves, at least one appliance was damaged and something special was broken that couldn't be fixed or replaced. Frank is the first mover I've ever worked with who handled each and every item with very special care and DID NOT damage or break one item. In my book, that is one the most important things you want in a mover. I was also very impressed with how quick he was in responding to my request for a mover and his extremely fair pricing. He also followed up several times before the move to make sure he had every item required to make my move successful and smooth. He arrived at the exact time we arranged to start the move and worked non-stop until the move was complete. And, when the move was finished, he had me check each room to make sure I was completely satisfied and happy that every item was exactly where I needed it to be. And, one of the most impressive things Frank did that no other moving company has ever done, he made a follow-up call the day after the move to make sure I was happy with the move and if there was anything else I needed that was overlooked. Of course, I didn't need him any further as he did everything perfectly the day of the move. That is true professionalism! I only wish everyone I deal with in business was like Frank. My life would be happier and stress free. I recommend Frank to anyone who is looking for an outstanding moving company. Thank you, Frank, for such a great job. You are an amazing person and you did an amazing job!

Amazing company!! They moved my belongings into a storage without a hassle. I can't believe they were able to get it done so quickly and everything was in tact. The movers were very respectful and efficient. They are super affordable.... I will gladly use them again.

We contacted Larry when my husband had to have foot surgery the week we were moving. Larry gave us a full no nonsense quote. We moved a one bedroom apartment about 20 miles. Larry and his son showed up early and began hustling. They are not afraid to break a sweat!! They moved everything as quickly and efficiently as possible while still being careful with our belongings. Larry and his son were professional and caring with our belongings. They did not "milk the clock" like other movers do. I will be contacting Larry the next time I move and I suggest you do the same!

Great professional moving services. The three movers were quick, efficient and careful with my belongings. They took apart our master bedroom set and put it back at the new place. They worked very hard because my new place has not elevator and guys brought everything up thru the stairs. Tip them well . They deserve it :-)

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.

Mike n Shaw are awesome movers. They were patient and did the job perfect. It took longer than expected to pack and move but they didn't ask for any extra money. So they are professionals, cool guys. I liked their service and if any of my friends happened to need movers I will sure recommend Mike n Shaw.. thanks guys for your service.

Both Kevin and Tyrell worked as swiftly as they could. They came prepared with tools, and dollies (during the move, he went to his truck and got another dolly, which ate up sometime). Overall, both movers were professional in language, demeanor, appearance, and were very polite. A few pieces of critical feedback. We had our appointment scheduled at 7:30, and they arrived at 8:00. I do wish they moved a bit faster, because we originally only scheduled for 2 hours, but it took 3 hours, and on top of that my two roommates and I were helping. If you use them, ask them to bring a bigger floor dolly to move more at a time.

I was looking for a local moving company in South Orange County and came across Safe N Fast Movers. I checked and called a few others as well and compared their rates and fees. Safe N Fast made me feel the most comfortable because they answered my questions clearly and were pretty straight forward regarding what my rates would be, no surprises. Safe N Fast also came recommended from my Mom's neighbor, Dave, who did a move to Irvine from Laguna Beach. That was a huge move with multiple trucks and 6 or 7 movers, but mine was pretty small, just 6.5 hours. My wife was happy that they put all of our beds together, so we did not have to deal with that as we still had a lot unpacking to do. Something I thought was cool, that Safe N Fast provided the wardrobe boxes which probably saved us an enormous amount of time, as all the clothing from the closets was magically transferred on the hangers from our old apartment to the new condo. So if anyone needs movers, Safe N Fast can do the job. Gary Forhane

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.

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!

This was my first experience with having to move a piano. I looked around for movers and got a few quotes. Velazquez was fast at responding and quick to give me a quote. Their prices were excellent! I loved the fact that I was able to schedule the move even while I was out of town. They puntual and kept me informed every step of the way. I will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them!!!

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.
