I am very pleased with my entire experience with MovingWithLove (MWL). MWL was very responsive and informative over the internet and booking phase. I only had a small job which all the other moving companies were quoting a 3 hour minimum. MWL quoted a 2 hour minimum, so I was able to save some money (which is always a good thing). Once the booking was completed I received an eta of 2:20. KT and Jamal arrived at 2:17. Now that's what I call being punctual! It was hot but they were ready to get the job done and they did! I had some very large pieces of furniture which I wanted moved from the second story down to the garage. I have wanted these things gone for years, but it just seemed overwhelming to try and find a company to do the smaller type jobs, and move them without damaging the house, walls, etc. Thank you Thumbtack for pointing me in the right direction in order to find the right company to do the job! Thank you MovingWithLove!!! KT and Jamal came with great attitudes and ready to get the job done. They did a fantastic job and I would/will definitely use this company again!

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.

I had several gym equipment to move from garage to a room. Since these were large, the job Required taking apart, moving, then putting them together. Most moving companies would not even consider the job, or charge a minimum of 3 hours when my estimate was 1-2 hours. Rod was very responsive on thumbtack, asked me about the equipment, and actually looked up how to videos before getting back to me with a quote. When I hired him, we agreed on a date and time, not a 4 hour window. On the day of move, he was running behind by 30 min but called me in advance so that I didnt have to wonder. Rod showed u with Diego, both were courteous. The move when very well, no damages or mess left behind. They had little bit of time till the next job, so we agreed on a side job to put up some shelving. They finished that too without any issues. Overall it was a great experience and I would hire them again for various projects and moving needs!

Overall, everything went well with moving our household goods from both a second-floor apartment and storage facility to a third-floor apartment and garage. Three-person team was on-time, professional and worked in an expedient and safe manner. Rates were competitive with other similar type moving businesses. I would consider this business for a future move.

They were professional, quick and so helpful. I appreciate the service. I'm very hard to please (lol) so it means a lot that I would recommend their services.

Dave was fantastic. He was very punctual and communicated with me the day before we moved to confirm the time, location, and where he should park his truck and trailer for ease of loading. He has every possible dolly and device you could imagine to move an apartment, condo, house, motorcycle, etc. We moved an entire one bedroom apartment within a few hours, and, truthfully, I was very impressed with how quickly and efficiently we were able to finish the job, especially with a steep and narrow flight of stairs involved. Furthermore, I really enjoyed our time together - he is a good man with a friendly demeanour and my wife and I both enjoyed his company while we packed. Even if you think your move requires the services of a larger company with extra hands, I encourage you to give Dave a shot, you will be pleasantly surprised at how capable he is on his own and how quickly he can get the job done, and you'll save a lot of money while supporting a small business owner. Beyond any shadow of a doubt I will hire Dave for my next move and I will gladly refer him to my friends and family, and to you.

I was very nervious about hiring movers because I have heard horror stories of them taking a long time to rack up more money from you. I was on a very tight budget and needed to move right away. We moved out of an apartment that was on the top floor that only had stairs. We moved 10 minutes away into a apartment that had an elevator and once again on the top floor. Move Central told me they would send three guys and a truck. My biggest consirn was the hourly rate of 125.00. Once the guys arrived they were very nice and ready to get to work. I was completely amazed at how fast and professional they were. They even had wardrobe boxes ready for us. These guys worked their butts off and they wrapped all my stuff so well that i even let them take my big screen TV in the truck. I was going to take that in my car but they really cared about how they handled my stuff. This was the best decision that i made hiring this company!! The three guys that moved us are Lanley, Edber and Austin. They move everything within 4 hours. Since i was so short on money i was only able to tip them 20 each and i felt so bad about that because they deserved 100 each. Thank you so much for making my first time using a moving company such a amazing experience.

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!

I went through many searches for a moving Company but got the fastest and most consistent response from Credo Moving. They didn't ask for any up front deposit, etc. and showed up timely (texted me there progress to show up at my house). Were very professional and cooperative when I moved into my new place and asked to rearrange furnishings to best fit my place.

I would like to say that I am extremely grateful for this moving company. I am a 65 year old man, I usually do the moving on my own but I'm not as nimble and handy as I use to be. I was skeptical at finding a company that'll be able to handle moving my entire home across town while handling my valuables with care. These men were on time, and assured that my valuables would be well taken care of. These men had an entire systematic process and moved with a sense of urgency, care and confidence. Well done guys!!!!

It was a last-minute call, we couldn’t handle our move which was two blocks away from our first place that we found out when we already started moving a bunch of small stuff. It’s really hard to find an available moving company on weekends, but ProMovers Group gave us this opportunity. They arrive on time, without asking any questions they already knew what to do, and just started helping us out for our relocation. They helped us a lot, I like their professional approach, all our furniture and fragile items were wrapped up with blankets to protect them. Victor and his crew made our life so much easier, definitely would recommend them to everyone!

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.
