Mario and his brother were so awesome! They arrived on time and were extremely efficient. They were able to move me out of my LA apartment down to my SD apartment in 5 hours including travel time. They also were the most well priced movers I got quotes from and stuck to their original quote with no hidden/additional fees. I was very impressed. I would definitely use them again and refer to friends! Thanks for a smooth and easy move!!

Our movers were great. They communicated with me before the move to make sure they brought everything they would need for our move. They were running 15 minutes late on the day of the move, but gave us a heads up. The two movers were efficient, worked hard and got the job done well. They were also pleasant and in good spirits the whole time which made moving day a little more tolerable. Thank you!

I received two reminder calls: one the day before and the second when the truck was en route. Very reassuring for someone in the middle of juggling a move. The truck arrived 30 minutes early (not late). The two gentlemen were polite and friendly. I appreciate the free wrapping of all my furniture. The only reason for 4/5 stars is that one couch leg was broken (I think it's salvageable but it will require some attention). Would use movers again. Also, the price was just right (and I shopped around).

From start to finish, the experience was exceptional! The quote was spot-on and reasonably priced. When the movers arrived they did a walk-through and informed me of their plans. Jesse and his crew were awesome and very neat. They carefully wrapped, packed and moved all my apartment belongings to my destination pretty quickly. They even disassembled & reassembled my and my daughters beds. The guys also placed all my furniture where I wanted and connected my washer and dryer. Except for the boxes that I have to go through, my new place is all settled in! What a relief!! After they left, I received a message thanking me for the business and asking if I was satisfied. I certainly was and would recommend News Moving Company to friends and family.

I didn't have a moving company that I knew would be fair and available. I did my research online but came up empty handed. A few days before my move I searched Yelp and found " Thumbtack". Thumbtack connected me with" Larry Quality Movers". Within 30 minutes ( it seemed less ) I received an email response. Larry asked me someone questions on my move and we were able to set up the exact time and place to move me. The day before the move Larry contacted me to reconfirm the time and location. The next day Larry & Dean were at my place prompt. Very smoothly they moved my things out. They got to my new location before I was there and were really to get my things moved inside. Larry and Dean are as professional as they come. They are fair with their pricing no nickel and diming you. You get the exact price that you are quoted, not like some of the other movers adding last minutes things. Larry and Dean thank you for such excellent service I will definitely let others know about your service it was a pleasure working with you!

I'm very satisfied with the entire process. They were able to adapt to my schedule on short notice, were very well mannered, and quite prompt, too. All furniture was moved to and fro without a mark appearing on anything. They were very gentle on my brand new hardwood floors and followed all my instructions to the letter. A refreshing experience compared to many of the horror stories I've heard about some movers. They did cost a little bit more than some other bidders but it is money well spent to get such service. I'm recommending them to my sister who needs furniture moved. Well done!

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.

We had a long move from Los Angeles to San Diego, and we were looking for a reasonably priced, no hassle movers. It was a good call for us to hire Mike & Shaw, and the company made it an easy and pain free experience. The guys were professional, efficient, courteous, and were willing to help out in anyway they could. Great communication throughout the whole process, from the initial thumbtack inquiry to the very end of the move. Would highly recommend.

I have moved many times and Happy Home Moving company is the best I've ever had. The office staff responded immediately to my inqiry about their services. On the day of the move the movers called 30 minutes before arriving just like they said they would. Upon arrival, the crew got straight to work and didn't dilly daddle at all. The movers were very conscientious and wrapped everything requiring extra protection. I will definitely hire these movers for my next move.

We moved three times in the last 1.5 tears. Safe N Fast Movers were fair in price and gave us excellent movers. They take care of your stuff and move carefully and efficient. They were fast with their quote and had a perfect time spot for me. I highly recommend them. Don't make the same mistake we did last time and use Cheap movers (probably with no license). Go for professional company. For Safe N Fast, there were only 3 men and they did a much better job in faster time than 4 men from other company. Ed and his team were awesome, I just can’t stress this enough. They were quick and helpful, with packing and moving. One of our new neighbors asked about a good moving company and we recommended Safe N Fast. She said she will book them soon. PS: You can thank me later guys😉. I definitely recommend Safe N Fast to friends and family.

Here's the thing...I hate moving and I have no time for it. I was so impressed with College Men Movers the first time, I called them again for my last move. They arrive, we do the paperwork, then the clock starts. And they get to it, I can barely keep up! They are polite and pleasant to work with. And they just keep moving and getting stuff done. I can't say enough about that. They don't stand around and yak, they just get it done! They also were careful with the few delicate items I had so everything arrived safely. I don't look forward to moving again, it'll happen, but when we do, we'll be using College Men Movers!

Appointment arrival time was between 7-9am. Four packers arrived at 7:45am and quickly realized that I am a packrat and hadn't pre-packed anything, and therefore needed a full pack, so the lead guy quickly called and asked their home base to send more help. He assured me that they would try their best to get it all done today, and they started right away. I don't remember all their names, but I do remember Micah, because he and the lead guy had to carry the heaviest stuff. The fifth guy arrived at around 1pm, and between the five of them, they packed up ALL of our stuff. And it was A LOT OF STUFF - big, heavy furniture and small stuff strewn all over. For them to pack up a 3-bedroom/3 bath (extremely cluttered) home in 9 hours was a bit of a miracle. They even carefully wrapped and boxed everything, took pictures of all the stuff they packed and now I can see pictures of all my "inventory." To top it off, the movers were super polite, nice, careful and efficient.

This is an extremely late review, but I steel feel the need to say this. This is an AMAZING COMPANY . I moved back to Los Angeles from Corona, and I needed professional services for all of my large furniture. I have a four bedroom fully furnished home, and there was no way I was going to be able to pack and move all of that furniture, even with a crew of friends. It was short notice, and I called at least five different companies .The estimated quotes were expensive from the other movers, and the customer service of some of them were questionable (I will review those companies on their respective yelp pages). From my first contact with the owner of Moving Packing Group , I knew I was speaking with a professional. I called and left a message, and he responded within 20 minutes. I told him my situation, and he was able to give me a reasonable quote considering the distance, and amount of furniture that I was moving. When the time came to move, the movers packed up the furniture and the items that I weren't able to, and packed all of my rooms in the moving truck in less time than google suggested it would take (Yes I google everything.. LOL). One thing that stood out was the care that the movers put into my belongings, and their level of professionalism. My furniture was delivered and set up the way that I asked for it to be, and in the SAME CONDITION that it was taken from in my previous home. Although this company is in Anaheim, they service all Orange County cities and Los Angeles. I would use this service again for cross country move. Moving is a hassle in itself, and I am happy that I had those experienced movers from Moving Packing to help me during this stressful time of relocating.

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.
