These guys are amazing. Hands down the best movers I've ever worked with. They were thoughtful with all of our belongings, taking care to wrap and protect everything. They moved efficiently and quickly, refusing to take breaks. They also have the best spacial awareness I've ever witnessed. We have two oversized sofas that were near impossible to get in/out of a doorway and they navigated it with no issue. I would recommend them 1000x over and will use them when I move back!

Carlos was prompt, courteous and on time. He and Jorge moved a heavy sofabed from a freind's house in San Jose to Palo Alto. I would recommend Two Friends as reasonably priced, reliable movers.

The guys came over earlier than expected so I wasn't quite done packing, but they were so great about it!! They looked at the apartment, strategized, and then went on a roll. I especially liked the "small stuff" box they used because it probably saved me about 50 trips up/down the stairs to get things from point A to point B. My biggest worry with movers is usually timing (since they charge by the hour and tend to take their sweet time), but these guys did not waste a minute! I originally thought they had another move scheduled after mine, thus the fast-move, but it turns out I was their last one. It is hard to find movers who do NOT have a minimum # hours (which I wanted for the very short-distanced move). Great service and unbeatable prices! Pro tip: I totally missed that there is no pro-rating of the movers' time, so if it goes past the hour you're paying for the entire hour. My move was completed in 2.5 hours so the guys + myself thought it was time to wrap things up and I let them go.

At first I was a little wary about how cheap the quote was and expected there would be lots of add-ons or poor service... However, I could not be happier with my experience. Smart Move SF made my intracity move so easy and hassle free and I am recommending them to all my friends in SF. To start, the online booking process was quick and easy. I instantly got a response back from Sam with a quote confirming my requested date. There were no hidden surprises and the move stayed true to the advertised price. My movers, Johnny and Sergei, were also fantastic. They were punctial and explained how the move would go. They took apart and wrapped my furniture, carried lamps, packed my closet into the FREE wardrobe boxes, and carried everything through my narrow Victorian apartment hallway and down three flights of stairs. I'm still amazed at how quickly they moved everything! In the end, they moved my 1 bedroom apartment and reassembled the furniture in 3.5 hours. I am certainly never moving myself again, and will definitely use Smart Move SF for my next move.

DDT Moving was beyond what I hoped for in my apartment move. In planning the move, Daniel was extremely responsive, efficient, and flexible in scheduling the dates and times. The pricing is more than fair, especially for the work value you're getting from them. Leading up to the move, Daniel confirmed the job and clarified all details. On the day of the move, they were right on time and got straight to wrapping the furniture and packing up the truck. I really appreciated that they were aware of time and were working hard to stay on track. Everything was wrapped carefully and handled safely. They also came super prepared with other materials (like wardrobe boxes) that we might not have had. Their work ethic is extremely impressive, and I would highly recommend them to anyone. Thank you DDT Moving!!

I experienced excellent service with Leclair Moving moving company today, 8/10/18. To be honest, I had a list several moving companies, but when I called Leclair to inquire about pricing, I spoke with Horatio who was more than happy to answer all th questions I had. He was kind, professional, polite and patient with all my questions. When I met him in person (he was one of the movers) he was a delight to talk to you. Horatio was what made me choose Leclair moving company. It’s employees like these who make a difference just On the initial contact! If considering a move, Inhighly recommend Leclair Moving Services! Thank you, Horatio and Kevin, for a great move. You made it so easy! My daughter so appreciates it and so do I! Rebecca Dahlgren

Everything about my experience with this company was 5 stars across the board. From receiving the quote almost instantly to them showing up right on time for the job. I just needed a pool table moved from one location to another and the gentleman that showed up knew what they were doing and handled the table with the utmost care. I would use them again and recommend them to anyone looking for movers.

Overall my experience was excellent, great price and the movers were all professional and quick! The one con was I had been told my things would arrive in two weeks or less, it ended up being around 3 weeks, so it was an extra week I didn't account for.

We were thrilled with M.P. Movers. Marquis Philip was responsive to messages, showed up on time, moved things from one place and Ikea to our home 1-1/2 hours away and assembled an Ikea day bed. He is reliable, a hard worker and a very nice guy. He did an excellent job. We would hire him again, and will refer him to others.

I hired this amazing team of movers to haul some items from a warehouse in San Francisco. I couldn't speak more highly of their professionalism, their commitment to getting the job done, and how easy it was to communicate with them. From the very first phone call to updates all along the way to the final delivery this was an absolute A+ experience all the way around and I look forward to hiring them again for any of my future moves.

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use 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 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.
