Wow, from their first phone call to me, to leaving my new house... this company was amazing! We had a very stressful move out / move in situation due to EXTREMELY tight time lines of closing two homes at the same time. Lenders, escrows, buyers, sellers.... everyone had there own agenda and timeline and wouldn't budge - so THESE GUYS STEPPED IT UP! 1st off, they sent over 2 trucks and 4 guys. 2nd, they came early - time was of the essence! We had just a few hours to load a HUGE house before a termite company was coming to tent the house. These guys were on it! Then the unloaded and put furniture together at our new house. It's been a week, and I have yet to find anything broken! :) Everyone was very nice, pleasant, helpful, personable, and far exceeded any experience I've had with moving companies. They bent over backwards for us! Did I mention that out of 6 quotes, they were also the best priced?!?! Amazing! I'd say they have a client for life with us, but I'm hoping to never move again! haha. But I will recommend them to everyone I know that does move!!!!

I am very pleased with my entire experience with MovingWithLove (MWL). MWL was very responsive and informative over the internet and booking phase. I only had a small job which all the other moving companies were quoting a 3 hour minimum. MWL quoted a 2 hour minimum, so I was able to save some money (which is always a good thing). Once the booking was completed I received an eta of 2:20. KT and Jamal arrived at 2:17. Now that's what I call being punctual! It was hot but they were ready to get the job done and they did! I had some very large pieces of furniture which I wanted moved from the second story down to the garage. I have wanted these things gone for years, but it just seemed overwhelming to try and find a company to do the smaller type jobs, and move them without damaging the house, walls, etc. Thank you Thumbtack for pointing me in the right direction in order to find the right company to do the job! Thank you MovingWithLove!!! KT and Jamal came with great attitudes and ready to get the job done. They did a fantastic job and I would/will definitely use this company again!

Great Moving company. We had to move from our 4 bedroom house about 4 ioles away. We know it would be a hard move because of the large amount of stuff we have with our 2 boys. Mikhail took the time to come over before the move to meet face to face and get me a estimate of time. I knew we were going to need a lot of help, so we decided on 4 movers. The moving day was stressful, we still had a few boxes that needed to be packed. Mikhail's team helped to carefully pack the remaining items. They also have a ton of moving blankets and boxes, and made sure all the furniture was wrapped before moving. Mikhail also let us keep everything in the truck overnight, so we could finish getting the new house ready with some last minute cleaning. This really helped us a ton. The Globe crew was steady, they did no move so fast that they hit walls or dinged furniture, the moved at a steady pace were they were careful but quick. I highly recommend Globe Moving. They make the move less stressful, they listen, and a very professional.

I had several gym equipment to move from garage to a room. Since these were large, the job Required taking apart, moving, then putting them together. Most moving companies would not even consider the job, or charge a minimum of 3 hours when my estimate was 1-2 hours. Rod was very responsive on thumbtack, asked me about the equipment, and actually looked up how to videos before getting back to me with a quote. When I hired him, we agreed on a date and time, not a 4 hour window. On the day of move, he was running behind by 30 min but called me in advance so that I didnt have to wonder. Rod showed u with Diego, both were courteous. The move when very well, no damages or mess left behind. They had little bit of time till the next job, so we agreed on a side job to put up some shelving. They finished that too without any issues. Overall it was a great experience and I would hire them again for various projects and moving needs!

What a great local company!!! We're a military family and have been through MANY moves & Reliable is top notch. One of the best experiences we've ever had. We worked with Dan before our move. He communicated with us very clearly and we knew exactly how things would operate. On moving day, Seth and his crew were awesome! It was the Saturday this July when it poured rain for most of the day. The crew was super respectful of our possessions and our new home. Friendly, hard working guys who knew what they were doing. They were all very patient with our questions and concerns. Even after the move, Dan handled follow up questions promptly and to our complete satisfaction. In my book, there is no other moving companies in San Diego. This outfit is top notch. I would recommend them to my own family, friends, and coworkers without hesitation. Reliable Movers is aptly named and we're SO happy we chose them for our move!!

I used Dominant Movers for a local move of my 3 bedroom 2 story house within Bay Park, San Diego. After very detailed consultation over the phone, we agreed for 3 movers and big truck for $97/hour. The whole moving process was very smooth: guys took care of all my concerns, no damages, no scratches. Everything was assembled and arranged properly. I am very happy with process. I expected my move to take about 6-7 hours, but it was almost 9 hours. And I have NO complaints. They worked reasonably fast, very efficient and accurate with furniture. Movers told me that a lot of customers expect unreal from them, for example: Moving 3 bedroom house for 4 hours. J Sure, most of us want to pay less and have all your furniture delivered safely, but it is impossible. It’s either you rush and break everything or you take your time and deliver everything in the same conditions. Once again these guys were reasonably fast. Also when I was booking with them, their coordinator on the phone told me that my move is going to be around 9 hours. And he was right with his estimate. I will definitely recommend them to my friends. I used different top rated moving companies, but they were not efficient as these guys were. And I tipped them $40 each, they deserved every penny and even more. Great Job Dominant Movers, the BEST MOVING COMPANY IN SAN DIEGO.

Dave Harkins did a fantastic one-man job of moving our piano from one room to another. He was careful and no mishaps occurred as the heavy piano was expertly perched onto his dolly and moved across wood flooring onto an uneven tile flooring surface and placed in its new location. I would absolutely hire Dave in the future for any kind of job requiring the moving of heavy or awkward items. As a bonus, he's just a nice guy and was right on time as agreed.

Had a wonderful experience with Move Central for my recent move. The crew handled my difficult move with professionalism and care. I had a couple large pieces that they wrapped and made secure and safe in the truck. All the boxes were stacked nicely in the truck and got to my home without damage. I would highly recommend Move Central if you need a good, professional moving company.

After weeks of trouble with our long distance moving company, Cloud 9 movers were able to step in and save the day delivering our things into our home. Dwayne and Pedro were great, professional, and helped us unwrap and assemble furniture pieces taken apart by the first company, fold moving blankets for the first company to collect, move boxes around so we could find the things we wanted to unpack first, and take recycling to an outside dumpster. This move has been very stressful for us, and having movers who were calm, helpful and in good spirits was much appreciated. All our items were handled with care and placed where we requested. Price was very reasonable. They were late to the meeting site, but we hired them only 4 hours before the move was to take place, and the driver of the original truck our stuff was on refused to give an ETA so given those facts, it's amazing Cloud 9 was able to help us at all. Would hire again for local or long distance moves.

These movers are the best of the best our there! Everything from start to finish went as sooth as could be, which was a huge relief to me as I was wrapping up my job and had a ton going on at the end of February when I used Easy Movers to help. Carlos and his crew of 2 movers (in addition to him) were super efficient and clearly knew what they were doing. I loved how they wrapped the chairs, dressers, nightstands, etc. carefully in plastic so they wouldn't deteriorate in the storage unit I moved into. The boxes and furniture I had ready to go went in the truck and right to the storage unit - no time wasted. When we arrived to the storage facility and I couldn't figure out the key lock in my personal unit, they even helped with that, which was extra nice. It's sometimes difficult to weed through moving companies online trying to find ones that aren't overpriced, and I feel like I hit the jackpot with Easy Movers! This is actually the second time I've used them (previous time was August 2013) and will continue to use them again when the need arises without hesitation. They're easy to work with, professional and very experienced. I cannot recommend them enough - they truly made my moving experience hassle-free!

I went through many searches for a moving Company but got the fastest and most consistent response from Credo Moving. They didn't ask for any up front deposit, etc. and showed up timely (texted me there progress to show up at my house). Were very professional and cooperative when I moved into my new place and asked to rearrange furnishings to best fit my place.

They were also very kind and professional. I will definitely hire again and I have already recommended this company to all of my coworkers and friends.

It was a last-minute call, we couldn’t handle our move which was two blocks away from our first place that we found out when we already started moving a bunch of small stuff. It’s really hard to find an available moving company on weekends, but ProMovers Group gave us this opportunity. They arrive on time, without asking any questions they already knew what to do, and just started helping us out for our relocation. They helped us a lot, I like their professional approach, all our furniture and fragile items were wrapped up with blankets to protect them. Victor and his crew made our life so much easier, definitely would recommend them to everyone!

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!!!

Out of all the movers that I contacted for our long distance move, Mr. Houston was the best! He couldn't have been more pleasant and easy to work with. When you are dealing with something as stressful as a move it's nice to have someone who is so even keel and communicative about the whole process. He stayed in touch with me the entire move and was very accommodating to all my requests and questions. He gave me a flat rate quote that included everything so there were no hidden fees. His company moved our 4 bedroom house and vehicle from Oceanside, California to Phoenix, Arizona. They showed up on time with materials and completed the job in a little over 24 hours (loading truck, driving to Arizona, unloading into storage). I would highly reccomend their services. It was a pleasure to work with them!

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.
