Excellent movers! Movers were kind, hard working, quick, on time, and even asked for extra ways to help with our remaining time: like setting up beds and taking down boxes. We will use this great company again! Highly recommended!!

My movers were so professional and friendly. My move took about six hours and for as much stuff they to pack and move that is really good. It also only cost me about $600 (including a $40 tip I gave to each one of my two movers because they were just that awesome). I would definitely use this company and recommend them to anyone planning a move.

I had moved a few times but never hired a professional movers.. This was my first time hiring one and I was very lucky that I chose Flash Movers. Angel Sampol, the owner and his crew are both friendly and courteous. I received a phone call half hour before arrival time. They moved my one bedroom stuff i so fast but carefully. I paid what was quoted and there were no hidden fees. My son and I were both very pleased and highly recommend Flash Movers.

If you are looking for the best professional and quality movers, then seriously look no further!! I hired Joel and his movers last minute because my other movers cancelled on me (and now I am glad they did). Although it was a bit hectic trying to find someone so last second, Joel made the process stress-free and he was very easy to communicate with. Joel and his movers showed up early and got to work quickly. I highly recommend them and I look forward to hiring them again for my future moves.

Great experience with Cube Moving! The owner was very responsive in preperation, promptly answering all questions and calls. The gentlemen that showed up for the move were polite, efficient, honest, and did their best to wrap and protect all of our belongings. Upon initial evaluation of our items, they were honest about the estimated time the whole move would take and worked to meet it. They were prompt, took no breaks, hussled, and were the opposite of all the horror stories I have been made to believe about doddling movers intentionally trying to increase time. Great team!

Very Fast and efficient moving service. My movers were Vlad and Ernesto and Todd. I was approximately estimated for 6 to 8 hours of moving service, but this crew was able to finish everything moving everything from 3 bedroom townhouse for a little over than 5 and a half hours. They protected all my furniture with wrap and blakets and did not charge asingle penny for that.

The Clean Move did a great job. We have an unusually heavy stand-up piano that needed to go up a flight of stairs. Joseph's team moved it up and put in place without an issue. He was far more reasonably priced than all the other movers. I highly recommend them.

By far my best moving experience! We scheduled our move through Sharon and she took care of the rest. We received a call the day before to reconfirm. The day of, the movers even showed up a little earlier which was great! They were friendly and professional. My belongings were handled with care and everything was wrapped. I will not look for another moving company! Thank you Sharon for taking care of our move

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.
