These guys were awesome! I needed to move from my storage unit to my apartment on the second floor. I messaged them and they had it done the next day. I definitely recommend them!

I hate moving. I absolutely hate it. I especially hate it when I have to temporarily put things in storage for a move as well. I have to say, however, this was one of the smoothest moving experiences I have ever had. I had boxes that had breakables, and I had to give specific instructions for stacking boxes. Jose and Miguel were excellent. They were prompt, polite and were very hard working. They were 5 stars in every way possible. I have to do another move in August, and I am going to call Larro's Moving Services again for sure. I am going to be begging for Jose and Miguel to be the staffers who will be doing my next move too. Thank You for doing an excellent job on my move guys!

They did a fantastic job! This was a bit of an unusual move, because I needed to empty out my mobile storage container from a somewhat remote storage facility, but they found the place and were even nice enough to let me ride in the truck with them back to the city! I had about a studio apartment's worth of stuff, and they loaded and unloaded it in less than 2 hours, plus travel time. I was a little nervous at first because they arrived with a fairly large truck, and was worried that it wouldn't fit anywhere in SF, but they managed to find space. Everything was handled with care, and arrived perfectly intact. Can't go wrong with Two Friends Movers!

Edgar and his helper were super efficient! They started and finished exactly on time, were well prepared for small unexpected things, and were in good spirits throughout on a hot summer day. In all, highly recommend their help. I paid $190 for a 2hr, 2 person move from my storage unit to my apartment (within 5mi). $65/hr + one time truck rental of $60. Works out even better for a slightly longer move!

Patrick was great to work with. I was moving down the hall of the same building and didn't want to pack/ unpack. He was really flexible, helped me move all the big furniture, put a bunch of things in storage and even helped me put away some stuff!

Albion Moving & Storage : Steve and his crew were courteous, efficient & amazing! - They came on time, moved expeditiously, and got us moved in within 6 hours ( 2 bdrm & loft - 2 bath)! They used a creative moving concept of two moving trailers which made it easier for loading as we had a sloped driveway and several flights of stairs. I recommend sending photos of entry's, stairwells and any sort of building issues before getting a final quote - do your own packing/boxing to save money & time - we did and it worked out great! I will admit, I was initially concerned about Steve who is the more senior of the crew - but he kept moving like a machine and kept driving the team moving at a clip too. These guys are down to all-business and no fussing about or lazing 'round. They ask questions, placed boxes where we asked and offered to take apart and/or reassemble furniture too - ( We did it ourselves to save $) BONUS: The charming Manchester accent was an extra bonus! Cheers Gentlemen for making our move a success!!

We had a lot of stuff to move and we were like deer in the headlights. Scott came over to give us an estimate and also gave us a lot of tips and guidance on how to get going. A Pro Tip from Scott; plan early and call him early! We did a lot of packing ourselves, but Scott can also provide packers to make your job easier! (I wish I knew this earlier, it would have saved my back!) On the day of the move, Thomas and Shane showed up on time and began to move us. Those guys were the most professional and friendly people you would ever want to work with. They made the whole tedious task a lot easier for us to deal with. When they got to our storage place, they carefully arranged our stuff to maximize the space. Scott said he was trying to see if we could avoid getting another storage space (we had a LOT of stuff!) I enthusiastically recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I look forward to using him and his crew to move from storage to our new home.

I would not recommend this company what so ever. My movers were incredibly unprofessional, rude to staff, rude to me, and were the absolute worst movers I have ever dealt with before. One mover yelled at the woman running the storage unit I was moving things from, and did not pack my items properly in their budget truck. They broke two pieces of my furniture and my rug is missing. I had to call the cops on them since they were holding my furniture hostage after I said I would complain about the broken furniture. After that, the mover was rude the whole time and called me names/got up in my face and was very confrontational. Trust me, never use this company.

I learned of him through a person I was buying a couch from in SF and she mentioned that she had a 'great' mover available she'd worked with for years if I needed help getting it to my place. I got the movers info and spoke with Daniel the owner. I explained to him I had some stuff in a storage in San Jose I needed him to grab, then to come to SF and grab a couch, make a third stop to grab another piece of furniture I'd bout in SF, and finally deliver everything to my 3rd floor apartment.... he gave me a ridiculously fair deal (almost the same cost if I'd have rented a Uhaul and gotten a helper for 5 hours and done all the driving an loading/unloading). Daniel was amazing! He was very easy to reach (both phone and email) as well as willing to accommodate my special requests. He gave me updates along his route at the different stops and showed up when he said he would... Best of all, him and his team had packed everything carefully (I could see the wrappings they'd put on furniture when they brought it up to my apartment), handled everything with care, and where extremely respectful of my stuff. Daniel and his crew are top class. I've already introduced him to another friend, and I will absolutely be using him again and recommending him to others.

Mike is super nice and professional and everything went super smoothly on his end. It was a little less smooth on my end in a handful of ways, and he was super patient, and made me so much less stressed. It was a small but strange move (we were converting a room from a guest room to a nursery for our new puppy, and had some cabinets in storage to come in and a queen sized bed going into storage), and Mike was totally with me on the whole swap situation. Very happy overall!

So happy this company was there for me when I need last minute movers to move my 2bedroom home to storage! Not only were they 15 minutes early and patiently waited (i was 20 minutes late), they moved all my things quickly and were happy to do so. All my things were packed with out me present so a lot of odd shaped items and thing I still had to decide to keep or toss. I also had two very large Work benches that they moved no problem. The best was besides being totally easy going and kind, is that they charged me a flat fee of $300 for 2 guys for 3 hours of work. No travel fee, no tax, no extra anything!! I tipped them of course as they definitely deserved it! I can’t wait for them to help me move all that stuff from storage to my new place in Walnut Creek.

We were really pleased with the work Matt did. We had a handful of projects that he completed for us: -Painting and installing trim and a dowel in our laundry -Adding reinforcements, a bike hook and shelving to a storage unit -Hanging floating kitchen shelves He has a great attention to detail when it comes to things like tight seams, clean edges and making things level. He was also on time, friendly, polite and cleaned up after himself. I will note that while we did pay the amount he initially quoted us, it worked out to more than his listed rate of $50/hr, but still seemed reasonable for the job. We'd be happy to use Matt again for future projects!

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.

Nicholas is one of the best moving and delivery guy in the bay area. Within hours after I contacted him, he arrived on time and was prepared to remove our huge load of bags of soil. He has the capacity to move all sizes of furniture and other various items. Nichols is the one to call for a quick and efficient removal service.

I had to move all the contents of my entire classroom into a storage unit this past Thursday, July 19th. Six years of my life stuffed into small, medium and large boxes plus a bunch of plastic containers and miscellaneous. After 3 days of intense packing I was left with a few hours to search for a moving company and storage space. I was simply overwhelmed. That's when I came across Rafael and his wife Nara. They were the best thing that happened to me this past week. We agreed to meet at the school in South San Francisco at 9:00 am sharp. I arrived at 8:50 and found Rafael and Natalia already in full gear (padded gloves holding a dolly and blankets) waiting by the truck. They both greeted me with that strong handshake and warm smile so characteristic of Brazilians. I felt at home! After I showed them to my room and explained what I needed done they started carrying the boxes to the truck. They were diligent, extremely careful and professional. I was very impressed and relieved, as I had a painful experience with a moving company two years ago when we settled into our new home in Newark. When they were done storing all my items, Rafael informed me he made sure all the boxes were facing out so I could see their labels. That was something I was actually going to ask them to do, but ended up forgetting amidst all the commotion of saying goodbye to some of my work colleagues. The final touch was when Rafael asked me whether I was happy with the way he arranged the boxes inside the unit. I thought that was very thoughtful of him. They charged me a fairly reasonable price with no hidden fees. At the end, both parties were happy! I strongly recommend Rafael and Natalia's services and will definitely contact them again once I need my classroom supplies moved to a new classroom (which I hope will happen soon). Patricia M.

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

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.
