Wow! Ricardo was amazing. Was always very quick to respond and answer any question I might have. Showed up right on time and was able to pack everything up and deliver it to my new apartment in less time than initially quoted. The two movers disassembled and reassembled all my furniture as well and not a single item was scratched, broken, or lost at the end. Do yourself a favor and hire Larro's moving services! They will take all the stress out of moving!

Two Friends Movers packed our entire apartment quickly and professionally. I actually had to grab something out of a box shortly after they packed it and was shocked with how well every single item was well-packed within the box. I'll definitely use Two Friends 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!

Steve and his moving partner showed up on time & moved our items in a timely manner to the truck. We moved 1.3 miles away & the unloading took a bit longer we had a one bedroom condo with a couch bed, desk and a table w/ 4 stools along with some boxes from kitchen & bathroom the reason I gave only 4 stars was because of the length of time it took to unload our items it took 8 hours from 10-6 2 hours to load and 5 hours to unload????and cost us about $200 than we were expecting. That came as a shock but the service provided and the movers were kind to our items and hospitable. I highly recommend Albion moving but suggest a timeframe and pricing beforehand.

I had to move a sofa set from one house to another. The movers arrived on time, were very careful with my furniture, carefully packing the materials well. They were very friendly and happy to be doing what they were doing, and accomplished their task quickly and carefully. I would definitely do business with Scott's team again in the future for a similar move.

Professional moving and handyman company. I hired Harp and his movers when my movers did not show up. They came within 2 hours after responding my call. They moved my 750 pound piano, heavy furniture and sofa bed from 4th floor narrow stairs case to 2nd floor move in place. They also do handyman service. They also mount tvs and hang pictures at my new place. I recomend their service.

Professional, courteous, efficient. Trustworthy. This group knows exactly what they're doing when it comes time to pack up your items and get them safely to the next location. If you're not sure of the next location, store your items at their warehouse. The movers genuinely care about your items and consider different options on how to best protect what you're moving. Be available to answer any questions, but otherwise, get out of their way because they're the experts.

My original movers cancelled on us the day we were set to move. I called D&J moving that morning and they were at the house within 2 hours. Very responsive and saved the day! They were quick and meticulous about the job. Great people to work with. I would highly recommend them for any of your moving needs.

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

This was our first time ever using movers, so researching a great company and affordable pricing was very important for us. I stumbled upon this Drew and his company through Thumbtack and they offered the best moving rates out of the other 9 companies. I contacted them, got a response very quickly and after putting up with all my questions and concerns, they still seemed liked the best fit. Communication responses were quick and made decision making easier. Moving day came along and he sent Anthony and Tony as movers. They went above and beyond with loading and unloading everything we had. Couldn’t have asked for better movers. The challenges they endured moving everything to the top floor was out of this world. Very thankful for a successful 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!!

We hired Byron to replace our front door -install door and frame, new locks, peephole, plus painting. We also asked him to do an additional lock for our back door. He did a great job - love our new door! He also offered to pick up additional items from Home Depot for us (primer, etc). Very responsive. Would work with him again.

These guys were very friendly and helpful. The moved our junk out very quickly. It was a bit pricey when you compare value to all the work our apartment movers did for us recently, but it was worth it because they came at short notice even though they'd clearly had a long day. Would recommend them to others.

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.

Yes, would definitely hire again! We had a terrible time with our first movers and were very hesitant about hiring movers this time around but we were very pleasantly surprised and will use them again the next time we move.

I recently used Anthony for a local move and him and his crew were fantastic. The movers showed up on time, were incredible professional, careful and fast! They moved mostly furniture appliances for me, as I moved a lot of the boxes myself. They took apart the furniture, carefully wrapped everything and put it all back together in the new house. If you are looking for great movers, this is the right person to contact.

Flat Rate Movers arrived on time to our old apartment. They packed all of our things very professionally and fast. They also assembled all of our furniture, and all of our things were well taken care of! No damage on our wooden furniture! Our move was very fast and stress free! Both Dema and his partner were great! We are very grateful to have found this company. Superior service and very honest and reasonable quote. We will definitely recomend them to our friends and family.

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.
