First of all, he was the most responsive and proactive about lining up the job. Being a business owner, I liked that initiative. Nery and his assistant were great! Showed up for the quote when he said he would and was on time for the job the following day. That alone speaks volumes. He lowered his original estimate 25% because the trees were a little smaller than what I had input into Thumbtack. I have all kinds of fancy landscape plants under my elm tree and he made sure none of them got smashed. Plus, he hauled away a big pile of junk (wood, metal, fencing) at the last minute for a very reasonable fee. I love Nery Ramirez. Don't tell my husband.

Great job! Rafael worked hard to get our job done quickly and effectively. He dismantled and removed our old metal shed completely and took everything away. He cleaned up when he was done and took away extra items for us as well. We highly recommend Rafael.

These guys were so great. I must admit that I am very late on this review, as I had a lot of personal stuff transpire right after the move. This company came recommended from my coworker. She moved with them in January and assured me they had no hidden fees and had professional workers. The company I used previously came with 1 young guy and two Hispanic men who did not speak a word of English. This was extremely frustrating, as I had delicate pieces that I wanted to instruct the movers on. This time 4 gentlemen (about 25-35 in age) arrived, were very well spoken, and two of the guys were on my coworkers move. For some reason, this consistency was reassuring. Same guys, for me meant same good move! This was exactly the case. They were wonderful! Thank you Trammel for taking such great care of my marble table. I was so worried. The gentleman that initially installed it, said taking it apart would be more difficult. It took all 4 men to disassemble, wrap, and move my table. It’s so heavy! There was no rush, no tugging at pieces, and no sticking tools in random slots. This was calculated, professional, and meticulous. Very impressive. Best part was, they didn’t take their time like the company in Burbank did. At EZ Moving, each mover was always doing something at some point. Every time we walked by or offered to lend a hand, we were asked to relax and given a smile. It was nice. I was exhausted from packing and planning this move, so to be asked to relax and be in a stress-free zone was nice. One of the gentlemen, Allen or Alex, did such a great job at packing. He fully packed my entire kitchen. He didn’t leave a single toothpick! We laughed at how bare our kitchen looked. His packing skills endured the 75 mile bumpy commute. Our new house is still having they pavement put in, so the current pathway is still all rocks and dirt. We were so worried about this. I think I asked them 20x about the glass. Not a single scratch! Not the pieces he packed nor the furniture they wrapped. I did not get a chance to look through any of the items as everything remained in their boxes and furniture pads. We moved in, but we had to leave out of the country right away. We are just now going through everything. Their boxes and furniture pads are completely free to use, but I asked if I could purchase both, seeing as how we would have no time to unpack. This entire move has been so rushed. But it could not have been smoother with EZ. We’ll be honest, we were anxious coming home from the trip, not seeing any of the pieces (each one was wrapped in entirety, not a millimeter was showing, so we could not see anything, scratches or not). So you can imagine our satisfied and happy faces. It was good rest of the day. There are no hidden fees, they will tell you upfront what is provided for free and what comes with an extra cost. They have flyers on the Internet that show the same prices, so there are no surprises or false information. They have all kinds of boxes too, this will come handy for the different items you may have. We did not pack our clothes because they come with wardrobe boxes where you just hang the clothes inside. The box opens up with a small metal rod inside, you hang your clothes, they close up the box. Very simple. My only suggestion for others is to book it in the morning or a time where they can avoid traffic, I requested a 3PM window on a Friday, so I kind of inconvenienced everyone with this. Overall, will continue to use and recommend.

I had a cross from the 1700's that had a arm damaged and the broken parts needed to be welded back on. Richard did such a fine job, you can even tell that the cross was ever broken. Richard also gave some great suggestions on how prep the cross prior to welding and after welding so that the chances of rust affecting the cross are minimal. He kept me informed every step of the way. I would do business with him again and I highly recommend him for your welding needs

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How does a welder work?

A welder is person who works (typically) with metal. Welding can be done with a wide variety of metals including aluminum, wrought iron, stainless steel, carbon steel and galvanized steel. A welder uses extreme heat to meld together metal pieces to repair or create metal structures. Welding is used for automotive, structural, plate, decorative, pipe, restoration and other metalwork projects. Some items that are made by welding are custom fences, metal gates, interior decorative metalwork, and safety features such as window bars or safety gates for children or pets. The average national cost for welding services ranges from $100 to $150, although pricing can be higher depending on project scale and whether the cost of the metal is included. Hourly rates for welding services can range from $65 to $125. Welders may have a minimum service fee, especially if they are performing the work at your location. Welding can be dangerous work without the proper safety equipment, so welders work with protective masks and body coverings to prevent damage to their vision or skin. Some examples of welding repairs could be $25-$30 for tacking together small items (such as patio chairs), or $35-$100 for larger repairs on metal furniture. Bigger projects, such as a baby gate to seal off the top of a staircase, could cost $550-$750. This price would include one full day of metal cutting, one full day of welding and construction, one to one and a half full days of grinding and painting, and a few hours of installation.

How long is welding training?

Because there are different paths to learning to weld, there’s no single timeline for welding training. Some people attend school part-time while working their current job, while others can focus full-time on their welding training courses. People interested in learning how to weld as a hobby can also take classes from professional welders, such as at KCMA & Services in Waterloo, Indiana.

Expect to take at least two years to go from welding newbie to American Welding Society Certified Welder. A junior college Certificate of Completion welding course is two semesters full-time, or 10 units of coursework. With this certificate, students are qualified for an apprenticeship or internship, rather than a full-time entry-level job. Welding apprenticeships range from 6,000 to 8,000 hours long, equalling three to four years at 2,000 hours per year. Some junior colleges, such as Cerritos College in the Los Angeles area, offer more in-depth welding programs that lead to different welding certifications, such as arc welding and tungsten gas arc welding. These take three to four semesters to complete, so you could be qualified for an entry-level job in about two years of full-time study. Alternatively, you can prepare for employment more quickly through an intensive vocational program at a trade school. For instance, Ohio’s Lincoln Electric Company offers a comprehensive program that prepares people for a welding career in just 20 weeks and 600 hours of hands-on instruction.

How many types of welding are there?

Welding is a method of fusing together two or more pieces of metal using electricity or flame. Welding is used to construct buildings, make metal sculptures, build and repair cars, make gates and furniture, and for many other practical and aesthetic uses. There are multiple types of welding. Here is an overview of the most popular methods:

  • Stick welding: Formally known as shielded metal arc welding, stick welding uses extreme heat applied at the seam of two separate metals to melt them together. A third (intermediary) metal may also be incorporated for added strength. As the metals cool, they are bonded together.
  • Metal inert gas (MIG) welding: Formally known as gas metal arc welding, MIG welding uses a tool to feed metal wire into the weld puddle while an electrical arc melts the wire, which will fuse to the base metal upon cooling.
  • Tungsten inert gas (TIG) welding: Formally referred to gas tungsten arc welding, TIG welding is a similar process MIG welding, but instead of using a tool that continuously feeds metal wire into the weld puddle, the welder must hold and manually feed the stick.
  • Gas welding: A mix of flammable gas and oxygen is used to heat metal to the melting point.
  • Forge welding: Forging metal is an ancient art that involves heating two pieces of metal until they are molten, then hammering them together.

Where can I take welding classes?

Your options for welding classes depend on where you live and whether you’re willing to travel. Many skilled professionals offer private or group welding classes across the U.S. Some high schools offer classes for teens, but many people learn from a private trainer or in a junior college or vocational school. Students learn basic welding, machining and fabrication processes, including using gas and arc welding equipment, and qualify for an apprenticeship or internship. Other colleges as well as vocational schools have two-year associate’s degree programs that prepare you to take the welding certification exam and seek full-time employment.

How much is welding training?

The cost of welding training depends on where you take your classes and how quickly you want to complete the program. In general, junior college welding classes are the least expensive, but may take longer; trade schools offer intensive classes that lead to certification more quickly, but are more expensive. For example, Cerritos College, a junior college in Los Angeles that offers a welding training course, charges an average of $46 per unit; most of their welding certificate programs require 19 units of coursework, so cost about $875 each to complete. Pro-Weld, an on-site welding school in Idaho, offers three different welding courses. The 36-week welder fabrication and the 24-week gas tungsten arc welding courses each cost an average of $3,300, while pipe welding costs an average of $2,500 for a 24-week session or an average of $4,500 for a 52-week session. The 20-week comprehensive program at the Lincoln Electric Company in Ohio costs an average of $9,500. Many programs require students to purchase approximately $120-$200 worth of personal welding equipment in addition to textbooks or other class material fees.
