We moved from Carlsbad to Carmel Valley in one day. MGB movers were excellent. They arrived on time and worked very hard. They were extremely pleasant and delivered all of our belongings (including a baby grand piano) undamaged. They did not have any hidden fees. The final cost was very reasonable and was exactly what we were expecting. We are currently renting while we find the right house but when we move we will definitely use MGB relocations again.

Due to crazy life circumstances, I had to make a quick, and stressful move. Tony was available to answer all of my questions, even though it was Memorial Day, and he was able to schedule me in for that Wednesday. The movers came on time, calmed my frantic self down, and handled business like the pros they are. The move took longer than expected, due to stairs and truck height restrictions, but at no time did the team slack. Everything was moved with great care, and consideration. We'll happily use Tony's again!

I called 5 star after another mover canceled on me unexpectedly. They took my call right away and found a time that worked the next day. The two movers that came were good and kept the job at the 3 hour minimum. Would highly recommend them for any move as they are up front about pricing and include everything you need for a smooth move.

The entire experience was flawless. The two movers that came to help were clean and very helpful. They made sure all the glass was wrapped and ensured that all furniture was strapped in truck. They moved us as though they were moving their own items. I would recommend them without thought. Thanks for the experience from the Admin person Garina to the two men that moved us. Moving is usually not a good experience but you all made it much better.

I called Tony for a last minute move of my hot tub and a few other furniture items from San Fernando Valley to Kern County. Tony scheduled with me right away, arrived early, even before I did and moved my items with professionalism and care with no hidden costs. If you need someone good and professional, call Tony. He's the best!

Ron allowed me to reschedule my day at the last minute. When the time came he showed up on time and was willing and able to take care of my needs (taking apart furniture and filling his truck with junk from the yard and house to be taken to the dump.)He did it with a smile. This is the second time I have used Ron and would recommend him to anyone serching for someone to haul anything.

Chris and his associate had a refreshingly positive can-do attitude. They took special care with all my items, especially an awkwardly large, heavy framed antique print that has high sentimental value. They are the best movers I've used over my last ten moves in 6 years. I wouldn't hesitate to use them again and recommend them highly.

He moved a large, heavy credenza. It was turned down by 3 charitable organizations that wasted my time by assuring me on the phone it would be removed, but each time their movers rejected it. Brett is careful, professional and pleasant.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

I used My American Movers to move by 4 bedroom 3 bathroom house. Everyone was top notch from the salesman to the movers. They were all on time and finished ahead of schedule. Even with me asking them to move furniture from upstairs to downstairs and then I didn't like it and then had them move it back. They were awesome and I would definitely recommend them.

I have moved many times and Happy Home Moving company is the best I've ever had. The office staff responded immediately to my inqiry about their services. On the day of the move the movers called 30 minutes before arriving just like they said they would. Upon arrival, the crew got straight to work and didn't dilly daddle at all. The movers were very conscientious and wrapped everything requiring extra protection. I will definitely hire these movers for my next move.

Incredible movers from start to finish. Initial conversation was straight forward, via email and then phone. Simple rates, no hidden fees or strange add-ons. Just one all inclusive hourly rate. On top of that, they were extremely competitive in their pricing and extremely fast in their response times. They were also able to accommodate a relatively short booking time - we needed them within 2 days. The movers came on time, were efficient, patient, and professional in every way. Each mover went above and beyond in how they worked and how careful they were with our items. We have a large home, and a lot of items, and the guys worked their butts off for 12+ hours. I will always recommend this company "New Life".

I was very surprised on the quick response I received from Conrad's hauling and delivery service. With a last-minute move, he was able to arrange a team to move my things with the short notice and was also flexible with how I wanted to go about the move. The day prior to moving, Conrad made an appointment to view the propertyi was moving out of at no additional cost for a quick pre-inspection. At that time he also provided me additional boxes and packing supplies which I didn't think I needed at the time (and yes, I needed it). Considering I was not prepared for the moving company to move all of my things the day of, they were able to pack additional boxes for me. I appreciated their professionalism and quality of work, wrapping any large items that were not boxed to prevent any damage during the move. With a difficult situation at the new property, Conrad was able to come back at a later time to help me finish the moving process. This was greatly appreciated as I was not able to move some of my belongings by myself. I highly recommend this company and have kept Conrad's business cards handy for friends and/or any future moves.

I chose Roadrunner because they responded to my request quickly and gave me the confidence they would do the job within budget. On the move day they let me know they were on their way 30 mins prior to their arrival and showed up within the window of time promised. You get a text confirmation the day prior. The move was completed under the estimated time. The movers were courteous, professional, and worked quickly. Jason, the owner, also checked in periodically to ensure the quality of the work being performed. Do not think twice about hiring Roadrunner for your move. They are good people doing good work, and I would hire them again. Thank you.

Felix with A Plus Movers was great. Although we had a little slip up with our original time (it was due to factors outside their control: truck broke down), Felix and his team jumped on it and had us rescheduled for the very next day. The movers that did arrive were professional and quick. We were done in the two hours I had booked and I was satisfied with the work.

Amazing work by Ben for a very reasonable rate! I chose Ben because he was the most responsive, professional, and prepared - and it all turned out to be true! It's always nerve wracking to hire movers - you worry about time, the condition your stuff arrives in, the condition your door frame will be left in, etc. - but everything about my move with Global Tree Logisitics Corp was impressively worry free. The quote was no pressure. He was available short notice. He was timely. My stuff was delivered in perfect condition. I plan to use him for all my future moves! Thanks so much!

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.
