Jiri and his team did a great job moving our 200 pound table into our home. They worked quickly and carefully. Plus they offered the best rate in SF - major bonus! I will definitely use them again for any moving needs.

This is my third time using Larro's moving services. The first was to move boxed items from my house in SF (Glen Park) to a secure storage facility in south SF. The second was to move 10" x 20" worth of stacked boxes, cabinets, couches, bookshelves, BBQs, TVs and computers, etc. from the storage facility to Marin. The third job was packing and boxing my remaining items at home (beds, dressers, garage items, critical kitchen equipment) and relocating those to our new place in Marin. During each job, his crew of friendly, cheerful guys arrived on time, then worked quickly and carefully to complete the job as efficiently and pleasantly as possibility. They even stayed 20 minutes after stopping the clock to help assemble my bed. Given they make a living where they are paid by the minute, this truly was going above and beyond. Price is very fair- hourly for 3 guys, plus a fixed day fee for a huge truck. Today they actually brought 2 trucks and 4 guys, but charged me only for 1 truck and 3 guys. Very much appreciated! So yes, I recommend them, for sure, for any Bay Area moving jobs.

I hired these guys for a local moving from Sunnyvale to San Francisco. They showed up about on time and did the job pretty efficient. They are friendly, too. But my floor mirror is broken during the move (although Edgar told me it's the first thing broke on him in the past 4 years. I guess it's just my luck?). It could have been 5 stars if nothing was broken.

Anthony and Jose arrived on time and got to work right away. Loading the truck took a little more than 2 hours and we were off to the new place. Scheduling a move on a Thursday proved to work best for navigating parking for such a large vehicle in a residential area. Offloading the truck took less than an hour, total bill was less than I paid some other guys two years ago to move into the old place. Highly recommend them. Thank you!

To be honest I have very few words to describe the services provided by A2B Movers when it comes to moving houses. Thinking of the amount of effort and thing to be moved used to give me the creeps. I have 3 children and all are school going. It is impossible to get all their toys packed; they just seem to find ways to keep removing them again. At that point of time I contacted A2B Movers based on their recommendations. A2B were just excellent from the very beginning. A rep from their company came down the very next day and was quick to jot down the volume of goods, manpower and time involved with the move. I received a quote the very same day, which was by far perfect and close to what I wanted to spend. The move was damage free and just text book, a big thanks to A2B once again.

Working with Leclair moving was a great experience. Pavel was very prompt to answer questions beforehand. On moving day, Horatio and his crew showed up about 10 minutes early. They were prompt, courteous and professional about wrapping and moving my dressers and super flexible when we had to reroute since there was a hiccup at our second pickup stop. Horatio was very friendly. The guys even proactively assembled my new bed frame even though that wasn't part of the agreed upon service and I didn't request it. Getting a 3 man crew for the price was a great deal and I would definitely use Leclair again. These guys are really easy to work with and super accommodating to last minute requests.

Drew, Jimmy and Penny did an excellent job moving my house. They took very good care of furnitures as well as walls and doors. There were some scheduling conflicts but it all worked out eventually. I would advice you to pick earlier schedule than later in the day, meaning second appointment puts you at risk of first job taking time and more effort for the boys leaving you at risk.

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

Main Movers was extremely professional and prompt from the move I contracted them from the Bay Area to Los Angeles. On-time and actually below the quote they gave us. They had a professional contract and were very efficient. I would highly recommend there service. They actually came out and inspected the house before moving us I had a very bad experience with a mover before these guys (A company called "A better Moving Solution") This other company was a complete FRAUD and there account was been taken down from Thumbtac. My mistake with a "A Better Moving Solution" was that I did not request a copy of there CA drivers license. If anyone ever tries to use a very small cut-rate organisation that does not use there own truck, make sure they send you a copy of there CA drivers license. If your looking at this Mr Deon Bell ... your a FRAUD who should be held criminally liable. He uses Rocket Lawyer for his on-line contract ... another mistake I mad was I did not do a reverse lookup of his IP address, it showed the contract was initiated in Modesto and not Sacramento like he claimed. Kudos to Thumbtrac for immediately deleting his account. He uses the name Deon Bell and his Burner phone number is 1-916-280-8074 ... He will try to go by another name so be careful. He also uses the following email address LAMDEONBELL@GMAIL.COM and one other phone number.

Nicolas was easy to work with, was not only on time, and was friendly. He and his other mover did a great job picking up furniture for me in another city, then brought it to me. They also helped me move furniture around after just moving in a week ago. I would definitely use them again.

The team at Wally's was very responsive (jumped on my job with less than 6hrs notice) and tactical about moving my apartment. They took the time to wrap, and protect, all of my belongings before moving them and came well prepared with extra boxes/blankets. Amazing experience. Would use again and am referring friends! Note, they do have a minimum charge.

I've used a lot of different moving services before and Clutter is easily the best. The movers showed up at the very start of their arrival window, which prevented me from waiting around. They sent a group of 3 movers and each of them were courteous, professional, and hard working (no waiting around or wasting time). They brought all the equipment they needed, plus extra boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper for fragile items, which was very convenient and helped prevent me from running back to the store to get more of these supplies. Even before the movers got there, the customer service over the phone was excellent and their use of text messaging updates gave me a lot of peace of mind. Their "down to the minute" pro-rated billing felt very fair. I'll only be using and recommending Clutter for moving after this experience.

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.
