Jiri and his team helped my partner and I move large and small items 3x within the span of 6 months, and worked with us on price quotes to fit within our budget. However, because Jiri and his team are becoming more popular because of their efficiency in moving furniture, etc... and the careful, yet quick speed in which they pack their van, the demand of their services has been two-fold. Fortunate for his business, but on the third hire, Jiri had to postpone my moving date two times because of scheduling conflicts with another client in the Bay Area. But when he did arrive, he and his team of 3, carefully packed their van and my small car to fit 20 boxes of various sizes and weight, queen size bedframe, mattress, and box spring, dining table and chairs from my condo to make what would have been two trips into one. Other than a scheduling conflict and prolonged wait time, I would continue to hire Jiri and his team again because they worked within our budget, showed professional and careful packing and unpacking skills, and communicated when there was a time delay.

We had to schedule a move quickly and on a budget. Our move was perfect! Everything was packed carefully, furniture well-wrapped and delivered in perfect condition. Also, our delivery time was more than twice as fast as any other competitor. I can't give Brandon enough stars to reflect how happy we are!

Thanks a lot to Santos and Manuel! They work really fast and are very professional and friendly, the whole moving was super smooth thanks to them. They were exactly on time at pick up place and they even drove me to the new place as I do not have a car. Price is great too as they do not have hidden fees, my moving was under 40 miles so was not charged for drive to destination. If you are still looking for the right mover, I strongly recommend Two Friends Movers. I will definitely contact them again in case I need moving services. Thanks.

4.5 stars. Little trouble getting hold of him initially so had to follow-up. But, very professional and friendly team and was well equipped for the moving. Me and my friend didn't mind helping to move stuff to get things done in my budget. Would recommend him.

Jeff and his team are truly excellent. They are everything you hope for in a moving team: they were quick to respond to my request, they made themselves available for any questions or communication ahead of the move, they were on time (always a few minutes early!) and completed our project with the utmost professionalism. I'll be using Jeff's services again and again for any moving projects I have in the future. Thanks Jeff & Thumbtack for helping us get our moving project over the finish line.

Pavel and his guys SAVED the day!! Because of his amazing crew, I did not have to take a day off from work to move when another moving company screwed us over. Well, I am sad to report that another moving company booked through Thumbtack cancelled on us at 7:30 AM on the morning of the move. Initially stressed out, we ended up lucking out with Leclair Moving. Pavel answered the call at 10 AM offered us a a cash flat rate for 2-3 guys and completed the work in less time (4 hours including driving and breaks) than the other company had quoted us. We couldn't believe it. We saved time and money. The main challenge was that they were a few hours later than promised. However, given that they squeezed us in at the end of a long hard day, we were very grateful that they helped us out. Another difference that my girlfriend noticed is that they were a little bit short on the typical accoutrements of moving companies (wardrobe boxes, moving blankets). Thus, some of the items were not wrapped as much as she was used to. However, that did not matter a lick to me because all my furniture showed up in excellent condition. They helped me arrange the furniture in the new place, which my girlfriend was really grateful for. They worked really hard at both ends (two flights of stairs on either side!) We gave them a $100 tip for their commitment and professional execution of the job.

Drew and Benny(sp?) called if they can come earlier since they were available. They rolled up in a pick up truck with a huge trailer. It took almost 2 hrs to load, mainly our big items (beds, dressers, mattresses, dining table+chairs, book shelves, and some boxes and storage bins). It took about an hr. to unload. They were professional AND what we love best was their attitude. It made our "stressful" moving time bearable. Thank you so much for your service!! They have THE best deal!! Will definitely hire again, and recommend their moving service.

Do not hesitate to call G B Construction for gutter cleaning and replacement and leaf guards. They are prompt, quick, thorough, friendly and professional. Their charges are reasonable, and they do not upsell. I understand that they also do tile and wood floors, painting and household moving. I will be using them again and again.

We were thrilled with M.P. Movers. Marquis Philip was responsive to messages, showed up on time, moved things from one place and Ikea to our home 1-1/2 hours away and assembled an Ikea day bed. He is reliable, a hard worker and a very nice guy. He did an excellent job. We would hire him again, and will refer him to others.

The event was an adult dance party with friends and local residents so going in we knew everyone would be pretty respectful and helpful. So there was the question of whether we should even hire Roddy given our tight budget. But we were so glad that we did because we found his service to be invaluable. He showed up to the party early and dressed professionally, he helped set up, during the party he cleaned, he refilled and restocked drinks, he even ran to Safeway twice for forks and ice. After the party, he cleaned and did whatever we asked. He was always polite and had a smile on his face the whole time. Roddy kept the party running smoothly and it was awesome having him there. Roddy handled any issues that came up which allowed me to hang with my friends and dance the night away. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone considering using him.

Alfonso showed a level of skill and willingness to help that I was not expecting from someone from Thumbtack. He was eager to do more work and the detail he put into the job made me feel I was getting value and quality within my budget, and he brought all the equipment needed to do the job right, much of which would be a significant investment for me if I did it myself. I am hiring him to do two or three more lines of ethernet, and I look forward to looking him up for even more work in the future.

They were great! No banging of furniture on walls. Moved things very carefully and went above and beyond for me. Only suggestion I have us is carry tools and useful resources you may need during a move. Otherwise, job well done!

We called Clutter to help us move between apartments. The set up process was seamless and the person on the other end was great and funny. On moving day Alex S, Alex P and Darnell W came in on time, were extremely efficient and were fun to talk to. We were done in 4 hours! Alex being a magician with the ikea set up helped a ton too! They were great at navigating the tricky corners and didn't miss a beat even in the 90 plus heat. We loved the experience with clutter and we will definitely call on them again! Way better than all the last movers combined!

Paul and Katelyn managed all of our requirements with timely responses and quality service, at a price far better than the other quotes we received. They even dealt with an unexpected snowstorm without missing their delivery time. We would highly recommend Paul and his company for any long distance 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 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.
