Mario was super responsive and easy to work with. He had a quote for me in a few minutes. Oscar and Jorge showed up right on time and they both hustled! Wrapped my furniture in shrink wrap so it didn’t get damaged, unhooked my refrigerator, washer, and dryer for me. They organized their 26’ truck for two stops to make it easy and efficient. Great guys, super helpful, and friendly. I’ll be using them again In the future! Thank you!

Wesley and team are super..my move was made much easier due to these guys. They showed up on time and did not leave until the job was finish...even if it meant staying longer than had predicted due to snags that were out of their controls. Wesley used his personal truck to move a few small things that I had forgotten, and this is after a full day of moving...he did this with a smile.

If I could give Tony's moving service 10 stars I would . We found Tony on Thumbtack , and I must say he and his employees Luis and Chris exceeded our expectations! They were prompt , courteous and handled our furniture and apartment items with great care. Luis and Chris worked hard to ensure the time we paid for was 100% productive. They carefully wrapped every item and asked us for feedback along the way. We moved a one bedroom apartment im Anaheim, and for not knowing a soul there - Tony and his crew made us feel safe and cared for ! Thank you so much ! Price was very reasonable as well !

I'm very pleased with this company! The owner is nice and friendly, and his workers are fast, efficient, and charming. Also, if you're like me and only moving a small apartment worth of furniture, these are the best people to choose. Every moving service I spoke with said that they'd charge me a minimum of 3 hours, even though I know from several past experiences with other moving companies that my moves NEVER take a total of three hours. This was the only company that agreed to use whatever remained of the minimum three hours I paid for to help me assemble new furniture. :D Very cool and MUCH appreciated. My apartment would not look as cool without these guys' help. :)

Lucky was hands down one of the nicest and hard working people I have come across in a long time. He got to work immediately and continued working thoughout the day with speed but efficiency. He broke down one bed, proceeded to reassemble it in the next room and assembled another bed and a couch that I would have ended up returning if I had to do it myself. I will be calling lucky for any further moving and assembling service and recommend everyone to do the same. He's rates were so good it was unbelievable, when you come across a gem like him, ALWAYS give more than quoted rate. Worth every penny plus more

Alex and his team moved my client from LA to Dallas. It was a full service pack of a 1500 sq ft, 2/2 with study. The best part is, there was NOOO waiting! The move happened on a Wednesday and the items were delivered by the following Monday! They were friendly, informative, and a great price! My only advice or take aways from it was that I wished they would have labeled the boxes and kept them separate--all kitchen items, or all guest room items. That's what I have had in previous full service moves. I am huge on organization so I would have preferred things be separate and labeled by room/area, to make the unpacking easier, but the most important part was nothing was broken or missing :). I would definitely refer them to anyone moving from Cali

Their rates were lower and they were the only company that could give a specific time for delivery which was important to me. I was very pleased with the whole move. They would definitely be my first choice for moving my piano again and for other moving services that they offer.

I needed to move from SoCal to Northern California. The team was very responsive and was able to work around my time line. They showed up on time and took very good care of my furniture. They work efficiently and even with the long drive we’re able to get me in and my stuff set back up. I plan to use the service in the future when moving my company teammates. I was VERY happy with their service!!!

Not only were they affordably priced, they were on time, hard working, nice as could be and brought a truck perfectly sized for the clean out of our 2 car garage. It was unorganized and FULL. We didn't have the space to go through everything prior to them arriving we had to do that as we worked. They were beyond helpful. I guarantee you will want to hire this team for any haul job you have...Thank you again for helping us and makeing this move so much easier...

I found Safe N Fast movers here (Thumbtack) and definitely very happy with their service. My gf and I had a 2 bedroom to move but with a slight complication - upright Piano. Its my fathers old piano, so I was very worried that something could happen to it. Originally I searched for piano movers, only to move my piano and deal with the rest later. But Safe N Fast guys told me that they can do both, and ON THE SAME DAY! That was an amazing news for me. The movers arrived on estimated time, were very polite and cautious. They moved everything quickly and moved my piano with no problems (it was my biggest concern). It kind of looked very easy the way they've done it. I expected a mess to be honest. And my gf also was amazed with how efficient they were. We supplied them with ice water and gatorade to keep them cool, but they kept moving the whole time. They had the tools they needed to get the job done. The unload also was very quick and easy! Great service, great moving company for your buck.

Shout out to mark and stavo! These guys were the best. This was my first time hiring a moving company and will continue to hire this company for the next time. They were so professional and kind from start to finish, I loved how organized they were in setting up my appointment for my move. They gave me all my fee quotes accurately with no hidden fees and were open to all my questions with no hesitations. Mark and stavo arrived to my home at the arrival time give with big smiles that melted my stress from the big headache of moving, not only did they handled my job with nothing but professionalism and kindness they assured me that there was no job they couldn't handle. I praise them both for helping me with moving day , I could not do it alone and was completely ecstatic with the outcome. I will recommend everyone to this moving company and tell them request mark and stavo. It's safe to say I give them 5 stars.

Moving across the country is stressful. Great Nation made things so much better. I read horror story after horror story about every moving company, scary. Finally, I just went with my gut, which was guiding me to Great Nation. I was afraid of standard things like items breaking or being charged way more than expected, but mostly I was nervous about my things arriving in a timely fashion so I could begin my new job and feel organized. I was picked up and delivered 3 days later. It was super fast and I was almost afraid they would get to Texas before me. I would not hesitate to hire this company. My contract was spot on and I had zero issues, no damage, no scratches, no breaks! They take extreme care with wrapping all my furniture so I was very happy to see everything arrive in perfect condition.

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.
