The movers arrived on time and were fully prepared. They were courteous, professional, and expeditious in moving our boxes. Many items were art pieces and they took extra care in loading and unloading. Not one single item was damaged or knicked. This was amazing given there was one flight of stairs to deal with. Top Shelf is "tops" and I would not hesitate to use them again. Thank you for great service!

I have to say they did an excellent job, they were able to show up early to the appointment and worked straight through for 5 hours with very little break until the job was done. When there was an issue they quickly responded and took care of the problem in a professional manner. For the amount of stuff we had, 5 hours was quick and most of it was very heavy items but they never complained once. They were also extremely careful with our belongings and were even willing to accommodate some special requests we made of them. I would have to say that what they charge versus the service they provide is a incredible deal to anyone looking to possibly hire some movers. So yes, I would definitely recommend them to others for their moving needs. And thank you guys for all of your help, we will surely call you again the next time we need to move.

Angel and Marvin were very courteous and professional. They adequately explained the purpose of each step, especially time and care needed to properly wrap and prepare household goods and pack them into the truck. So, I really appreciate the effort and care provided. I was very satisfied with the total moving process overall. Key areas of satisfaction were: care and quality of service, adequately addressed customer concerns, performed entire move in a reasonable time (expedient but not too fast). I will recommend Flash Movers to my friends and relatives when they need moving services. Job well done !!!

Cube moving was great from start to finish. James communicated well and our three movers, Anton, Andre and Sergei (?). We're careful, communicative and efficient. They loaded everything without a scratch and got us moved 100 miles in nine hours, counting double drive time. In reality, they were done by 2pm. This is a great moving company and I highly recommend them to anyone.

The three movers were professional, fast, and efficient. They worked very hard. The only issue was there was some scheduling issue that delayed the movers so they arrived a couple of hours late. Since we had a bunch of friends waiting at our new address to unpack, they had to wait because of the delay. The movers were fantastic despite the scheduling hiccup.

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!

Very professional. They took the time to individually wrap all the table parts before storing in my garage. Have moved this table twice before and neither mover had this much caring in their work. Would highly recommend California Billiards for your pool table needs.

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!

Dmytro and the Packing Bees team are fantastic. I've used them for a couple of moves and have referred others to them. Every experience has been perfect. They're very friendly and flexible. They work fast but are also very careful with your belongings. Pricing is super reasonable. Couldn't recommend them more. You'll never want to pack your own stuff again.

Very polite and responsive movers! Joseph and Matthew worked hard and were very helpful to me. I would definitely hire again. Small areas for improvement - either because of my own poor description or another misunderstanding, they seriously underestimated the time it would take to do my pack and move (into a POD on my driveway). They also didn’t bring nearly enough boxes. However, this may just as easily be an issue with my communication, so I am not unhappy with them. I would just suggest that you do a better job making the size of your move clear than I did, so it’s more of a lesson learned that I am trying to share! :) I hope to bring the guys back when my floors are down to move my things back inside. Many thanks!

I initially booked because Grizzly offered the best quote while also having some of the best reviews around. Fortunately, they did not disappoint. The confirmation email I received after booking had ALL of the information I needed regarding the move, which meant there were no surprises when the movers arrived and started working. The crew assigned to me was a few minutes late, but they called ahead to let me know what was happening, which let me adjust my schedule accordingly. They also worked their butts off, climbing stairs at both locations for several hours straight! All in all, I would definitely book with Grizzly again.

These guys were wonderful and very respectful of my property and myself. My project was moving a large piece of furniture up a tight staircase without incident. They did all of that and more. They took time to do some installation of the feet of the unit and did a great job of that too. I wish I had found these guys weeks earlier when I hire company X and then needed to hire a painter to repair the walls and repaint after their botched job. Please give these brothers a try and you will be as pleased as I am.

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.
