I generally don't write reviews unless the experience is too good or too bad. The moving experience with Edgar and team was so good that I had to write a review. - Very reasonably priced. - Edgar and Enrique moved everything for a single bedroom apartment from San Jose to San Francisco in little less than four hours, and that too on a stormy day. - They did all with a great attitude and sense of humor. - They brought all the items safely. - Efficiency is the one word that comes to mind when I think of the way they executed the move. - Best of all, when we negotiated the budget, Edgar gave me a high level budget and completed within the specified amount. I don't know why anyone would want to use the high priced movers when these guys get the job done at a reasonable price. For my next move, if these guys are still available, I will definitely want to do business with them.

=== SUMMARY === I am a software engineer in Silicon Valley living in a one-bedroom apartment. The idea of moving all my packed boxes and large pieces of furniture, like my sofa, entertainment center, and bookcases, was extremely daunting. Do I hire friends to help me move? Do I hire expensive professional movers? Do I do it myself and get one of those PODS? "Ain't nobody got time fo' dat!" Steve and Joe from Albion Moving and Storage were able to move all my items into their truck and to their final destinations safely and quickly. Their truck was extremely large, so even the largest pieces had room to be properly lifted in and carried out. What made me pick Albion Moving and Storage over other competitors at first was their cheaper hourly rate and their 2-hour minimum. Whereas most other moving companies require a 3-hour minimum, these guys only required 2 hours. In my head, I felt the job would only take 2-or-so hours, so this made the most sense. Steve and Joe worked extremely quickly and efficiently, and the job legitimately took 3 hours. And that is great. It would have taken my friends and I all day (possibly two) to do everything these guys did in 3 hours. Steve and Joe are extremely nice and awesome. They made sure they knew where each item was going (new apartment or storage) and got everything to its final destination quickly and with great care. I am for sure going to be calling these guys again next time I need to move. This was my first moving experience living on my own, so I was extremely nervous. These guys put me at ease and have gained my trust. Thanks Steve and Joe! === DETAILS === They disassembled my dining table quickly and efficiently to have it all fit in my storage unit I was moving things to. They also let me purchase a sofa cover for $5 (very cheap compared to what the storage facility I was using charges for them). I actually had two places I needed my stuff moved to: A storage unit and my new apartment. This was no problem for them. They put everything into their large truck, went to the storage unit, put in everything that went there, and then drove to my new apartment, where they moved in all the remaining items. I was afraid this "moving items to two places" thing was going to be a problem, but it was not at all. They disassembled and reassembled my bed for me, which was very nice. They brought their own doorstops, and had all the equipment they needed to move even my heaviest piece of furniture (my entertainment center). They also have their own insurance, which is a very important detail when hiring movers. The whole process with them took 3 hours. I already had all of my stuff in boxes and all the furniture empty and ready to be moved. All they had to do was move things from my apartment to the truck, and then from the truck to the new locations. They were very efficient at putting the furniture into my storage unit. Had I been charged with storing the items inside, I would have done it in such a way where it wouldn't have fit. These guys assured me they could fit everything, and were able to make everything fit perfectly on their first attempt. (No rearranging was needed, they had already planned out what would go where as soon as they saw the storage unit and the space they had to work with.) Definitely will hire again!

For a move to be great it should be correct and affordable, with A2B Movers you are sure to get both. Our move was correct as there was no damage and the movers were on time with the pick-up and the delivery. Also the price of the move was the same and the company did not increase it by a cent. It quote is the most affordable and the company has a five star rating everywhere, this is something they deserve for sure. I would recommend A2B to all and for sure.

It was good. We have hired them. They were very polite and they took very good care of our stuff. It was expensive. They had three movers. It was a little high, but they were great that they did. They protected my floors when they came in. They were great. I had an appointment and they confirmed everything the day before. They called before they came. Guys told me when they're on their way.

Daniel was pleasant and professional to work with. Ours was his second job in the day but he came on time and set realistic expectations of how long the job would last and how much it would cost. We hired two movers and they worked as fast as they could, with the overall job lasting 6 hours. We would have probably been better off with 3 movers as it would have cost around the same as the job would have been quicker.

This was my first time trying to hire a professional via Thumbtack platform and it was a very good experience. After submiting the request, I received 3 quotes from different movers, and Pavel was one of them. He stood out among the three because of his responsiveness and reasonable price. Before hiring him, I was a bit concerned given that he had only one review before. But Im glad that I decided to hire him. Pavel was very careful with my stuffs, especially my computer (they also provided a small blanket to cover my table top) He was flexible as well when I asked him if he could stop by Ikea and Living Spaces store for me to pick up some furniture. Overall, I give Pavel and his crew 5 stars for their professionalism. I'll definitely contact him again for future move

Awesome move! They showed up on time. They ran up and down flights of stairs for hours. They were fast and friendly. I would recommend them. Only a few notes: They did not bring enough wardrobe boxes. Thought I told them I needed them. They broke a few plants that were not packed well, (our fault) then he was just going to leave the box in the garden area. I had to ask him to please get rid of it. I did also find a few items broken but really it was because of how we packed, quickly! Lol. I offered to buy lunch, but they didn't take us up on it. Seemed like one guy was in training and didn't move as fast as the other 2, but those guys were so quick it didn't really matter. Lastly, and it was minor detail also...they didn't bring any tools to take things apart. We had to loan tools for the sake of time. We have drills and such, but they were packed. All in all a good move, fairly priced and no joking around, well run move, no real concerns, they were professional, very fast, fair prices and good movers! If you want fast, efficient and a good/quick move you have found the right team!

I have moved many times and always something went wrong, and Silicon Valley Luxury Moving delivered the most professional service I've ever seen. The movers were quick and extra careful wrapping my furniture and getting it moved through our narrow doorways and taking it upstrairs at our new townhouse. Everything was placed where we told them and nothing was damaged or even scratched. They used their equipment to get it done fast, so they finished even before the estimated time. These guys are providing excellent services for very competitive price. I will definitely recommend this moving company to all my friends and will use them for my future moves! Our movers were Bogdan and Sergey, thank you guys for the great job!

Had a impressive experience with My Move. First, the sales Rep. Richard is very responsive and responsible. His quote is fair and reasonable, lower than many other movers. For moving your stuff, you don't want to go for the extremely low quote as some of your personal memories simply cannot be replaced. Richard also went beyond and forward to respond my follow-up emails during and after the move. It's quite nice to have him acting as a "case manager", I appreciate this personal touch. Their moving team is also efficient and detail-oriented. They disassemble and assemble our furnitures with care. The moving went pleasant and smoothly. No water damage, no boxes broke. Totally 5 star!

This was the first time using Thumbtack and MP Movers delivered far beyond what I expected. They were professional and had all of the tools needed to complete the job. Communication was great and they were proactive in making sure that everyone was on the same page. I specially liked that they were prepared to take payment through credit card. I would absolutely hire MP Movers again.

Moving is extremely stressful as we all know, but the pros at Southwest really mitigate a lot of that anxiety. I dealt with the nicest people from Mandy, who was my initial contact and provided me with the moving quote, to Ajay, who provided me with an update and ETA on the arrival of the movers, and then the three movers themselves, Joe Robert and James, who worked tirelessly and efficiently and went above and beyond packing our belongings and going the extra mile (or two), it couldn't have gone better! Thanks Southwest.

Adarsh did a great job getting me set up for my move with Unirelo, and the movers did an excellent job as well. He responded to my request for a quote promptly, and was able to get me scheduled quickly. What I thought would be a stressful situation turned out to be very easy. I will definitely use them again for my next move.

Having my beauty salon relocated with American Choice Van Lines Movers cost me twice as cheaper than with other companies in Jersey. I relocated my salon to Chicago and it was done in 7 days. It was a pleasant moving and wonderful experience, well organized and professional. They would be my primary choice for a mover company in the future. The goods reached us absolutely damage free and when we checked the inventory there was nothing missing. I would surely recommend them to all, they are an ace service provider and must be selected for a comfortable move.

We hired Best moving van lines to help us with the move in February. My main concern was that the company had some bad reviews online. But they really were efficient. The movers just meant business. Nothing was overlooked by the 4 movers who came to work on such an excellent hourly rate. Even their vans were quite reasonable priced to hire. I was very impressed to see how all my beloved pieces of furniture were wrapped perfectly and loaded in the vans. They delivered on time as well. Bad reviews or not, I will definitely hire them again.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
