Luiz and his partner showed up on time and carefully packed my 3rd floor, 2-bedroom apartment into a 16' moving truck. I drove the truck 400 miles and nothing was damaged during transport. They did an amazing packing job and were very careful with my things. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

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.

The team of three got straight to work moving boxes and breaking down the beds while loaning me as many wardrobe boxes as needed. Cube wrapped and covered with moving blankets loose items before moving into the van. At then destination of the local move, the team moved the boxes & furniture the right room/floor. I would use Cube Moving and Storage again and would recommend.

My originally planned movers did not show up and Hector with Vazquez moving was able to put together a crew to move me into my home at the last minute. The crew was meticulous in protecting my belongings and were very careful not to damage my home moving out and moving in. Mosley is a great crew lead and you'll be lucky to have them manage your move. I would recommend them ... they are good people and did a great job!

I was extremely pleased with my experience with David Harkins and Venture Concepts. He came in with the lowest quote by far but the move from San Clemente to San Diego went effortlessly and was done with extreme care . He is a true professional and great guy. I will recommend him highly for any of my future moving needs.

This was an unexpected move that I didn't have much time to think about, and Move Central made it all happen with hardly any effort on my part. Daniel called me on a Sunday afternoon to explain the process, costs and planning, and was able to fit my move into the schedule within 3 days. The crew packed my entire house in one day and moved it all the next. Everyone was on time, efficient, neat and careful. The entire move went smoothly and Anthony and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Moving is never fun, but Move Central took all the pressure off. Thank you!

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 had a great moving experience with Husky moving and storage. They showed up on time and got straight to work. They were professional and fast and did the job better then what I was expecting them to do. They dissembled and put everything back at my new place. I highly recommend using these guys for sure.

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.
