Luiz and his team kicked butt! I would not wish my flight of steps (38 of them to be correct ) on anyone. My apartment was cleared out and all my stuffed taking to storage and organized within 4hrs. Incredible service, I would definitely hire them again and I would recommend them to anyone looking to move at affordable price.

Our move was going to be a complicated one, and while moving is never desirable, I knew this undertaking could not be done alone. Globe was the second quote received, with a lower quote than most. I was rather skeptical and wanted to know if there were any additional cost. No additional cost :) Globe representative, Michael and I spoke via email, and telephone to arrange a day to receive an on-site quote. He came out to my home to make an evaluation, and recommend the number of movers for the size of the house. He recommended 4, I felt only 3 were needed. He did not pressure my decision to have 3 instead of 4. He contacted me the day before the move to confirm the appointment. His crew of three movers came, did a walk through and discussed a plan. They were very efficient in moving us. They were conscientious, very courteous, and made life easier for us. I also liked that Michael and I spoke throughout the day on progress that was being made and he wanted to make sure that we were satisfied thus far. This was very important to me to have contact with the person who I originally met. Thanks to Globe Moving Group, our move was a success. I highly recommend them to anyone needing a professional moving company. They are truly hard workers and well worth the money.

I would highly recommend using Rod Rodriguez to anyone who needs furniture moved or moving out of their house. Rod is highly professional, very pleasant, hard-working, affordable, honest, straightforward, and meticulous about preparing the area before undergoing the task. His moving assistant, Rob, was also fantastic! Such hard workers, and not even a single scratch on the furniture or the house. It was not an easy job because they needed to carry two large pieces of furniture up a hairpin-turn staircase. We are moving from our home sometime within the next two to three years and I will definitely call Rod again!

Artur, Pocket, and Gregory (in training) helped me with my move. Very friendly and professional. They arrived on time and got to work right away while Artur went over the paperwork with me. I've never used movers before (usually do it myself with friends) so wasn't sure what to expect. They were very professional and right away felt secure in that they knew what they were doing. They carefully wrapped all my furniture and loaded all my belongings. Most of my stuff is IKEA and they usually don't survive traveling and moving very well but everything made it in one piece without any damage. They did note to me that since it was IKEA that they current guarantee and I appreciated them letting me know that upfront. But it all went well which was a relief. Anything that I needed to know I was well informed of. Even before the move I was emailed a confirmation along with documentation so I knew what to expect on the day of the move. Artur was very thorough in explaining everything as well as answering any questions that I had. They quoted a very fair price as well as a fair "not to exceed" quote on the day of which we were well within. It was a 1 BR 350 sqft move into a 2 BR 900 sqft and took about 3 hours minus the drive time. It took a bit longer than expected because they took extra care with my furniture which I completely understood and appreciated. They placed everything where I wanted it and did a good job of cleaning up (packing materials) afterwards. If I ever need to move again I will definitely keep them in mind and would recommend. Thanks Grizzlies!!!

I can't say enough good things about our experience with Best Fit. More specifically, our moving team of Kol, Sam and Patrick. These guys were motivated. We thought it was going to be an easy move. Moving out of an apartment on the east side of downtown to a higher apartment downtown. They showed up early, shook hands and were professional from the beginning. They wrapped everything securely, even stuff we didn't really mind needing wrapping, and they were quick but careful. Their truck didn't fit in the loading dock so they even had to haul it out into street and never complained once. What really surprised us is they knew our names and were very courteous. Seriously, like the best experience moving ever.

I had a great experience with Moving on Moving Company. They were very flexible in working with my schedule and were able to work me in when I needed them to. Jacqueline came out and assessed my belongings which none of the other movers did, and that made me feel like they knew what they were doing from the start. The guys were great, very professional, friendly, and hard workers. I am planning to use them again.

These guys did a great job! We moved from Cali back to Az and they were awesome all the way through. Houston did a great job keeping his word on everything regarding the move and accommodating our schedule. The 3 guys that helped move us were professional, respectful, courteous, hard working and fast. We have used other movers in the past and these guys have been the best so far, we will be using them again. It was a tough decision to leave Cali, thank you so much for making the physical portion of our move a lot easier. I would definitely recommend Sun City Muscle Movers. Thank you again.

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.
