Jared was easy to communicate with and quick to respond and schedule. I needed a piece of furniture ~60 kgs carried up 2 floors from the garage to the apt. Jared and Jesus showed up the very next day and were very careful in bringing it up the flight of stairs and setting it at the desired location in the apt.

Luise and Mario did a great job. It was raining outside. They packed all our furniture carefully and covered our carpets. They worked very quickly and also helped us to disassemble/assemble the furniture. The team is very polite and positive. We were not sure about furniture placement in the new apartment and guys provided great suggestions! The price at the end was what we initially agreed on. No hidden fees. I would definitely recommend this team to my friends. Thank you for the excellent experience!

The cost and time effectiveness was great. However, the tops of my bedposts were lost during the move making my furniture look pretty ridiculous now. My bedroom furniture is antique and cannot be fixed/replaced. Upon calling the moving company after my move to inquire what happened to my furniture, they were unresponsive and did not follow up with me or call me back. Pretty disappointing experience.

I lost sleep over planning for this move from SF to Oakland and couldn't have done it without MEAA movers. Their rates were extremely economical and the guys worked hard. We moved my 1bdr apartment with furniture and 25 boxes DOOR TO DOOR in less than 3 hours. Amazing experience with MEAA!

Patrick was super flexible, very accommodating, and extremely fast and efficient at assembling a large piece of furniture from IKEA. He was very nice, punctual to the T, and did not need any direction from us. I would definitely use him again in a heartbeat.

If I could give Albion Moving 10 stars, I would. They are by far the best movers we've used so far, and we plan on using them in the future as well. They came on time, and got straight into moving our furniture. We have some pretty heavy pieces and all of them got moved without any fuss. Most of our upholstered furniture is also white, making it more challenging to move. We got all furniture delivered to our new home, spotless, and without any dings or other structural damage. Two thumbs up for Albion Moving!

Don't show up 4 hours late. Don't make me drive from SF to San Mateo just to make sure that the Public Storage Unit isn't open at 10 pm when I specifically told you it is not. You are the one that turned up late and because the storage unit closed before you finished packing at 9 pm. When you move my furniture into my 10x30 garage the next morning, where I have created an empty walkway right in the middle so I can access my stuff easily and with the garage 1/3 full, don't stuff all my furnitures/boxes to the front of the garage where it blocked the entire entrance with a furniture leaning against the garage door. And then tell me that I should I have told you earlier.

Professional moving and handyman company. I hired Harp and his movers when my movers did not show up. They came within 2 hours after responding my call. They moved my 750 pound piano, heavy furniture and sofa bed from 4th floor narrow stairs case to 2nd floor move in place. They also do handyman service. They also mount tvs and hang pictures at my new place. I recomend their service.

Although they showed up a bit late (as is expected with SF traffic), Jeff and Jesus were amazing. They were so quick with unpacking our cars and U-Haul, they delicately handled all fragile furniture and boxes, and they were enjoyable to work with! We don't have an elevator and required lifters to move heavy furniture up one flight of stairs, along with around 30 boxes of stuff. They were able to get all the furniture up. HUGE BONUS: we had a piece arrive from Restoration Hardware at the same time we were unpacking. Jeff and Jesus actually ended up helping the three guys RH had sent to get our piece moved in. It was really cool to see them volunteer their time and strength to help us get all our furniture in. **We're already set on using these guys for any move we ever have to do again in the Bay area.

Daniel (and his associate) were very professional and got the job done extremely well. They both worked tirelessly and nearly non-stop for 4 hours moving me and my wife from one apartment in SF to another. There was a bit more furniture (and heavier furniture) than Daniel expected so he ended up charging me a bit more than quoted, but it was completely understandable given how hard they had to work to get my very large couch and solid wood armoire up the winding small steps and tiny door of my new apartment! One thing to note is that the truck they brought just barely fit all my stuff (from a large 1 bedroom), so be sure to give Daniel a heads up about that or let him know if you have anything extremely heavy or tricky.

They were able to schedule me in for the next day. They arrived on time and got the job done impressively quickly. Mike googled a piece of IKEA furniture and was able to take apart the couch very fast. They did well carrying heavy furniture in/out a tight staircase with an akward corner. The price was very fair, and they even hauled way extra stuff/furniture. I originally moved out everything myself and rented a U-Haul. They provided a truck and were professionals and did it in about an eighth the time that it took me! Highly recommend!

I took Nick's help to assembly around $2000 worth of IKEA furniture. Nick was very quick, professional and got the job done efficiently at a fair price. He also makes very interesting conversation as he goes about with his job :) I strongly recommend his services.

I'm a real person, I work at a tech startup in SF, and just having moved to a new part of the city - didn't feel like assembling furniture AND having to unpack. I had some NON-IKEA, but similar, furniture that needed to be assembled. I had looked at some other popular task sites but they were showing me candidates that didn't exactly look "handyman-capable", and were conveniently charging ridiculous hourly rates. That's when I searched another local list and found Chao's post for "handyman services"; we easily negotiated a fair arrangement and he was able to come that SAME DAY. I was initially nervous waiting for him to arrive but when Chao showed up - I felt like I won the lottery. He brought his own tools and didn't want to waste time on small talk. THIS GUY IS SERIOUSLY A PROFESSIONAL HANDYMAN, & FURNITURE ASSEMBLY SUBJECT MATTER EXPERT. Within his first 5 minutes on site, He took that first furniture box with 1000 pieces and had methodically and systematically placed them in an orderly fashion and quickly began assembly -- paying strict accordance to instructions detail. WHEN CHAO WAS DONE, THERE WERE NO EXTRA OR MISSING PIECES!!! And, even though this furniture was "cheap", it was assembled as best as possible. Chao is an expert. I had some difficult space constraints that he had to work within but he just adapted. He had lots of tricks too, like unfolding the packaging box to protect my floor. Using a piece of cardboard to protect the furniture during hammer-assembly steps, etc... This guy is PROFESSIONAL and I highly recommend him.

They did a great job moving my furniture and boxes. They were even able to disassemble my ikea furniture because it wouldn’t fit out the door. The entire move took less than two hours. Would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for movers.

Simply awesome. Arrived 15 minutes ahead of the appointment time, brought their own blankets and other stuff to protect heavy furniture. We have a really bulky and fragile sofa and the place we moved out had incredibly narrow hallways and stairways, so taking it out was quite an ordeal. Felix did everything fast and efficient without any damage. Highly recommend him and will hire him again. Thanks again Felix!

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!!

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.

Zhong Xin Moving Company made our move seamless and stressfree! They arrived on time, got all the packing supplies, offered us additional boxes to pack and were extremely careful with the boxes and furniture. Their truck was large enough to accommodate around 40 boxes. They did a great job in moving these up the stairs. Would highly recommend using them for your next move!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
