Jared was easy to communicate with and quick to respond and schedule. I needed a piece of furniture ~60 kgs carried up 2 floors from the garage to the apt. Jared and Jesus showed up the very next day and were very careful in bringing it up the flight of stairs and setting it at the desired location in the apt.

It was a pleasure using Larro's Moving Services for our move. Not only were they very quick with moving the items, but they also took great care to not damage anything as they transported the furniture. Can't recommend them enough! Would definitely use them again.

I lost sleep over planning for this move from SF to Oakland and couldn't have done it without MEAA movers. Their rates were extremely economical and the guys worked hard. We moved my 1bdr apartment with furniture and 25 boxes DOOR TO DOOR in less than 3 hours. Amazing experience with MEAA!

Patrick and an assistant helped us unload a truck of furniture and boxes into our 1 bedroom apartment. They showed up right on time, worked hard and fast, and took less time than we expected - less than the minimum time they bill (which we thought we would need only for unloading). So they were able to help us start unpacking boxes, and setting up things within the apartment that we were originally anticipating we would have to do ourselves. Thank you!

It was a pleasure doing business with Scott and his crew; they were hard-working, congenial, respectful, and always willing to skillfully adhere to special requests and changes as the job moved forward through its completion. Even given special circumstances of requiring a host of items to be delivered to a storage unit while other household furniture and goods were relocated to the residence, the team worked together harmoniously and effectively. I'm grateful that I chose this mover and encourage anyone in need of relocation services to contact Scott Merrill at Moving Services Transport.

Daniel was prompt in responding to my request. I asked him to send me a copy of his company's insurance and he did so within the hour. They came right on time, and though it was a small move (studio) they handled all my items with care. I asked them if they could drop off a couple pieces of furniture at the local Salvation Army, and they were happy to do so. My new studio was on the top floor (yes!) and they handled it with gusto and within the 2 hr timeframe. Highly recommended!

We had the best experience with Leclair Transport. Our crew was punctual, nice, clean and professional. All of our large gear was wrapped in blankets and/or plastic wrap, packed in to the truck with plenty of extra room at the end. We moved from a one bedroom, third floor, no elevator and had a couple really heavy items (especially the dresser). Before I met them, the only thing that I was worried about was being their first customer on thumbtack - but I am so happy I chose to work with them. These guys handled everything with a smile and a great work ethic. 10/10 will use them again for every move.

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

I had an excellent experience with Wally's moving and Junk removal service. Wally and team came on time (early actually) and worked very efficiently. They packed items I had not packed and disassembled (and re-assembled) large furniture. All furniture were nicely wrapped to prevent any scratches. I will not hesitate to recommend Wally's services.

I had a small moving project that needed to be coordinated like a Swiss watch movement: a very nice antique bookcase (that I just had refinished) and was transporting myself via a uhaul truck on a Friday morning to a destination some 70 miles away, had to be carefully unloaded and moved. More, I also had to get the displaced furniture moved to the garage (a small entertainment unit and small wooden book case) AND get capable people to do it with basically one day’s notice! The pressure was on! I literally posted my request on Thursday at 3:49 am (couldn’t sleep!). Elite Power Washing came to my rescue! They were the first to respond with a very reasonable quote, agreed to an 8:30 am appointment on Friday, and reassured me that they were up for the task. Mike and Juan arrived promptly, took direction on my suggestions on how to transport the piece (after I had watched how my furniture refinisher and his cohort had moved it), and placed it gently in the right spot. Mike and Juan are calm, courteous, considerate, and caring. They are professional, punctual, and take pride in what they do. I will definitely add them to my roster of professionals that I can count on, and will contact them for future jobs. I will assess my gutters and power washing needs as well... Happy and Relieved!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
