I would highly recommend Pete's Moving Services!!! They go above and beyond and provide exceptional customer service! I first heard about Pete's Moving Services through a close family member who moved from San Jose to San Diego. I was impressed that they were happy because they tend to be very critical, but they were blow away by their hard work, knowledge, and friendly staff. After hearing about how happy my family members were, I decided to give them a try when I moved to a different home. I called the owner/operator, Pete, and he was very friendly and helpful over the phone when going over the moving details. The day of the move, the guys showed up at 7am sharp, and ready to work. They were very efficient with their time and made sure I was a happy camper! Oh and all of my antiques and collectibles arrived at their new home without a scratch. Once again, I highly recommend these guys!

Manuel is a very intelligent, very strong, and very hard worker. He has a long track record of helping me - doing odd jobs including construction, electrical, plumbing, landscaping, moving assistance (packing, loading the truck etc). He also excels at computer technology and photography. In my years working as a Realtor, Manuel was my go to guy - there was almost nothing that he could not do. He always shows up with a smile on his face, eager to get to work and not just do the job, but do it correctly. Yes, he is something of a perfectionist - which is very refreshing in a world where a lot of people just don't care enough to do a job right the first time. Manuel takes a lot of pride in his workmanship. He has very high ethics and is completely honest, loyal and dependable. I would trust him with everything I owned. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

    I met Carolyn Slater when she was doing janitorial work for the building I worked in. I admired her work ethics and asked her to come work with me. Carolyn has worked for me over 5 years She is reliable, trustworthy and a hard worker. I trusted her to completely pack up my house when I had to move sooner than anticipated, while I went on a pre-planned vacation. She took on the daunting task and accomplished it with success and not one thing was broken or lost. When I had surgery she came daily and did cleaning, laundry etc. and caregiving for me. She helps me weekly with unpacking, organizing and cleaning. She's a talented artist as well, and has chalk painted several pieces of furniture for me and I receive compliments on those pieces. I would heartily recommend her for anyone looking for someone who needs a caregiver, housekeeper, organizer or general helper. She is awesome!

    First and foremost, along with my services, you can expect to get trust, reliability and quality work. I provide customers with a variety of services including general cleaning, deep cleaning, packing and organizing. I do this kind of work because not only do I like it, but I also love it. It's a very gratifying feeling inside to see the reaction and appreciation from customers, knowing that I, in some way, made someone's day better or sort of made a difference in their life. The one thing you will get without a doubt is a new friend. I also do some cooking and light errands if needed, so, why not make the right choice and choose me, Leilani, to help you while you help me. It will be a win-win situation in the end.

    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.
