I needed to move a huge, heavy glass-top desk from my apartment in SOMA to my office a few blocks away-- on foot. JP was great from the start. He arrived with a plan and got the job done in under 20 minutes! Every piece was handled with care, and the cost was much lower than quotes I got from big moving companies. I'd definitely book again.

I needed to move within a week and wasn't sure what day I would be getting the keys. The owner contacted me late Saturday night to see if I still needed help on Sunday. While, he couldn't assist me at the time I needed (early morning), he got some of his contacts to help us. The movers that came (Tony + assistant) were good and careful. The move took a lot longer than expected. I moved a 1 bedroom with washer and dryer and it took them 8.5 hours. They planned for 2-3hrs. While they might have been able to move all the things in one trip, they suggested doing two trips, stating it would be faster that way. I don't really think it saved us time by doing two trips but I was willing to try it. My only feedback is, please say CASH ONLY if you will only accept cash. After a long day of packing and moving, we had to drive out to the ATM to get cash to pay them. Inconvenient on all accounts. Otherwise, I would say these guys did a good job and came through last minute.

I hired the moving and packing services of Scott. Scott was very prompt replying to all my messages (usually within 5 minutes) and we were able to setup a time and date for the move quickly. I requested a specific time for the move to be done because of my unique circumstances, and Scott accommodated the request. 2 movers turned up right on time. They were super friendly and accommodated all my requests. They brought all the packing material and boxes. They spent every minute packing/moving and the move was done very quickly. I highly recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and also use him again for any move.

Leclair Moving is the best!!! Used them for a Craig's list buy (big sectional couch) . They got back to me quickly with the best quote to pick up the couch at the sellers, move it to my house (about 15 miles away) and take the old couch away . The best thinks was that they charged a flat fee for the move. Other moving companies had a per hour charge with minimum number of hours (3 hrs). Giving other movers no incentive to finish the job quickly. Leclair was quick, on time , and easy to work with. Thanks for a great experience Leclair. I would use you again.

We booked Alex very last minute because another moving company bailed on us at 9:30pm the day prior to move date. He gave us a very fair and reasonable price and his crew went ABOVE AND BEYOND our expectations. We definitely plan on using them again when it comes time to move our baby grand piano and HIGHLY recommend their services to all!!

They were very punctual and quick in packing up several large items (china hutch, curio cabinet, recliners, etc.) we had moved to Tracy. Had several items with glass and nothing was broken or compromised! I would definitely use them again! They also hauled off two items to the dumps. Very convenient, the two services they offer!

This guy was definitely on top of it, definitely knows the ins and outs of moving and packing. Even corrected some things that I overlooked to keep my stuff safe and intact. Wife and kids even got a kick out of him and enjoyed his company at the same time. He's obviously a family guy. They say moving happens in threes and I've already recommended two other people to Robert. This guy has worth ethic and common courtesy in which you don't see in people anymore. Robert definitely deserves the work if you're looking for his services! 100 percent money well spent!

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 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.
