I have never had such a good experience with moving than I had with MGB. Mario was such a nice person, and he brought a great crew of 3 more guys to work with him. They PACKED our whole house for us, loaded and unloaded EVERYTHING and were pleasant and accommodating the whole time! We had a VERY LARGE house and a lot (I mean a lot!) of stuff, and they never said anything about it, but just kept working. If I could give them 10 stars, I would! I recommend them HIGHLY. Their price is incredible, too!

I called Wesley on Saturday morning after another mover flaked out. Wesley made it happen! The next day at 11am, our moving crew was on the spot! Wesley and Shift It, are life savers!. A few nicks and dings, but we made our move, and we are happy. That Shift It crew is so much fun, my room mate bought lunch, and we are planning to invite them for the housewarming party!

Excellent local moving experience with Chris and Steve from Tony's delivery and labor. Tony called to confirm the day before the move and even checked in with me at the halfway point. I would definitely use this service again.

I couldn't be happier! Frank is extremely professional, he knows what he's doing and his rates are fantastic. Plus he's a extremely friendly guy--an attribute that can take a lot of stress away when moving into a new space and trying to assemble furniture etc. He was communicative throughout the day, showed up early and built a fairly complex IKEA bed in less than two hours. All at a great rate!! I could not recommend Frank enough. Thanks again sir!!

I am the type of person who fastidiously researches before I act. When my family and I were moving back into our home post-renovation, I researched all the local moving companies through thumbtack. I made my usual spreadsheet with prices, reviews, licensed vs. insured, years in business & whether background checked; and reached out to my top choices. The family business News Moving Company quickly became my obvious first choice. From start to finish, Delila handled each & every question and concern I had with patience & diligence. She was very responsive and reasonable. Their reviews speak for themselves: over 90% are 5-Star reviews. They understood better than any my unique situation of not needing to move from one place to another, but rather move from Pods in my driveway back into my home. On the day of the move, Frank, Jesse, and one other mover showed up on time. The move was amazing - they were fast, yet super careful & conscientious. They handled our unique situation as if they’d done it a million times and kept in communication throughout. Unlike other companies in the past, they didn’t dilly-dally or stretch the time. They finished in the quoted minimum time and charged the exact fair price we had discussed. I highly endorse and would recommend News Moving to any friend, loved one, or reader like you! You will not be disappointed.

Hiring movers was the best thing I've ever done and 5 Star Moving made it such an easy experience! I requested a quote to move from Carson, CA to Sacramento, CA, which is roughly 400 miles. After I reached out to them, Mike came to my apartment for an estimate. Just a few hours later I received an estimate in my email. I was looking at another moving company that my parents had used previously, who had quoted us a lower quote. 5 Star Moving matched the price when I asked them! A day before the move they confirmed with me via email and everything was ready to go. Mike and Azo were extremely professional, hardworking, and fast. They're very friendly and polite, but didn't waste time chitchatting. They moved my 800 sq ft apartment on the 3rd floor in under 2 hours and I was able to hit the road earlier than scheduled. They showed concern regarding the stress put on my cats while they were emptying the apartment, which I really appreciated. The guys wouldn't let me carry anything so I just sat back and relaxed! Before they left, they explained how many rest stops they would be taking and how long their breaks would be. On the road, they kept me updated with ETAs through text. Of course since they were driving a truck I beat them to Sacramento, but I wasn't worried since I knew exactly when I should be expecting them thanks to their updates. They unloaded the truck really quickly and nothing had been broken or damaged. They were no doubt tired, but said they were going back to LA the same night! With a total driving time of roughly 16 hours round trip for them, I really appreciate the quick and friendly service Mike and Azo provided. I would recommend these guys and 5 Star Moving 100%. The only thing I'm sad about is that they don't have a base in the Sacramento area so I can't hire them again the next time I move! =)

He moved a large, heavy credenza. It was turned down by 3 charitable organizations that wasted my time by assuring me on the phone it would be removed, but each time their movers rejected it. Brett is careful, professional and pleasant.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

I was in desperate straits in a need to move all the furnishings of one duplex (that would be two fully furnished units) - into to a larger back unit in very short order. I was recommended to PTM Movers here in Los Angeles by a friend. I spoke at length with the proprietor, David L., and it became readily apparent to me that by the end of our conversation that David of PTM Movers - highly valued the reputation of his company and they services offered. At that point I decided to take the gamble, particularly given the fact that I had delicate furniture items that were at once weighty, unwieldy, and required kid gloves in order to get them from point A to B. Within the short request time of 24 hours, PTM Movers sent his team; T&T Moving Co., and I can only attest that in my days of moving, I have never been more content. I've got to say that Tim and his crew don't bump and grind and clobber. They glide effortlessly and follow a very structured efficiency hierarchy established by Tim himself. Although it may not be obvious to the naked eye of the nervous home-owner or renter who values their possessions, there is skill to moving, and the distinction between experienced and not becomes quickly obvious. And Tim and his fellas come very, very prepared and take every precaution. You practically have to implore them to rest for a few moments and rehydrate - that's how devoted to do a great job they are. You want your moving job done properly by a company that understands and respects the power of "word of mouth" and stakes their reputation on it, then I highly endorse PTM Movers of Los Angeles.

I was looking for a local moving company in South Orange County and came across Safe N Fast Movers. I checked and called a few others as well and compared their rates and fees. Safe N Fast made me feel the most comfortable because they answered my questions clearly and were pretty straight forward regarding what my rates would be, no surprises. Safe N Fast also came recommended from my Mom's neighbor, Dave, who did a move to Irvine from Laguna Beach. That was a huge move with multiple trucks and 6 or 7 movers, but mine was pretty small, just 6.5 hours. My wife was happy that they put all of our beds together, so we did not have to deal with that as we still had a lot unpacking to do. Something I thought was cool, that Safe N Fast provided the wardrobe boxes which probably saved us an enormous amount of time, as all the clothing from the closets was magically transferred on the hangers from our old apartment to the new condo. So if anyone needs movers, Safe N Fast can do the job. Gary Forhane

Great Nation Moving seems to be a pretty popular moving company, so I'd recommend calling as early as possible in order to get your desired move date. Setting up the move was very easy and GNM had no issues when we wanted to change our move to a later date. Our crew was scheduled to arrive between 8-9am on 6/20 and they showed up right around 8:30am. We had a four-man crew, all were super polite and were extremely helpful getting our place ready for the move (we were mostly packed, but due to some issues with our house we hadn't completely finished). They wrapped all of our furniture and helped us pack the last few things that we needed. I thought that they did a great job, especially considering the limited space in our town home. We also had some things at a storage unit and they took care of those things quickly and without complaints. All in all I was very pleased with the loading process. Unloading at our house they didn't have to navigate the maze that is my former town home had. They made a real effort to make sure that everything was unloaded in its proper place (not always as easy as it sounds when you don't even know where to place items yet). For all the issues that we've had getting set up in our new place, it was really nice to have something finally go really smoothly. We had a great experience with Great Nation Moving and we'd definitely hire them again. From start to finish it was a 5 day turn around to Minneapolis, MN .

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
