Larro’s Moving did my recent long distance move from the Bay Area to Sacramento. The crew was phenomenal. I never once felt like they weren’t doing their “best work” or slacking off. We had a really long day and throughout it all the team was professional, courteous, careful with our belongings and super helpful with our last minute move. Thank you Jose, Rudy and Ricardo!

We were very nervous about hiring movers. We chose Two friends because of our original meeting and pricing! Santos was professional and friendly and very informative. Our schedule changed a bit and they were very cooperative & flexible. Our long distance move went off without a hitch. Everything arrived safely and in a very timely manner- These guys worked very hard and efficiently. I've already recommended them to the people who bought our house! Great Job and a big THANK YOU to everyone at Two Friends Movers!

Edgar and his team helped me move my stuff in a U-box shipped long distance from another state to an apartment here in San Francisco. Because the U-box arrival date was only tentative I had to reschedule my moving time with them twice. Edgar was very responsive and understanding to my requests and tried his best to make the time work. On the moving day they arrived on time, did the job faster than expected, and were professional about handling stuff. They are also very cheerful, which makes it pleasant to do business with them!

I highly recommend using Albion Moving and Storage! Steve and Joe were great movers. They were on time, quick, and knowledgable about the best way to move / pack our furniture. Our move was particularly difficult given the location (3rd floor apartment and far from storage location) and they were still able to complete the move in their estimated / quoted time with ease. Would definitely use them again in the future!

The owner Scott is very responsive and accommodating. Within a day of my call, I had three movers at my house. I needed a very heavy armoire moved upstairs. The movers were on time, professional, and made sure the armoire and floors were protected from any damage. They wrapped the armoire and put furniture pads down to ensure no damage was done to the hardwood floors. I would definitely use this company again and would highly recommend.

We recently hired Smart Move for a short distance move of our 2-bedroom home. Booking the job was easy with Alex who was both quick with his responses and patient with all my questions. For the move itself we had VS, Beric, and Arthur who were all friendly and hard-working. We did hit a few snags along the way but Alex was incredibly apologetic and has been doing everything in his power to make our moving experience a good one. Plus, their transparent pricing cannot be beat! Further, they will haul away extra furniture for you at a small cost and lug away your cardboard boxes too. We'll definitely be using Smart Move again as their customer service really can't be beat. And this is from someone who has moved 3 times in 2 years!

Last minute job request after I broke a toe. I've moved 22 times in the last 18 years including 5 international moves. For this job I needed help to move boxes from 1st floor to garage and then pack them into minivan. Sounds simple, but some movers clearly don't spend enough time playing tetris. Mike and Morgan worked hard to fit as much crap as they could into my minivan. You get it, when you just want to drive some stuff to the next place.. so you don't need it mega bubble wrapped but you still don't want it break. Not to be sexist but as woman who has moved so many frickin' times, having Morgan on the job, she understood and oversaw the items that were important to me.

Drew and his crew arrived in time. I live on the 3rd floor and have an elevator, but of course on the day of the move it was out of order (first time in 5 years). His team was professional and continued the job using the stairs. I truly appreciated the flexibility, hard work and dedication. It made my long distance move less stressful.

People who represented this company were personable and informative for the most part when I spoke with them on the phone. They were flexible as to the timing of the move, which was not a big job so had to be added to other shipments or loads. Items were delivered a bit earlier than the estimated date, which was good in our case. This was a long distance move and given it was a fairly small load, I think it took a few days to get an estimate of time of arrival, but they did get it to us in advance and arrived when they said they would.

I wish I could do 4.5 stars... these movers were close to perfect with just a little room for improvement. Excellent customer services takes it to 5. John and his team helped us move from Sunnyvale to San Francisco. We provided boxes and box packing materials and had some of our stuff boxed already. They packed the rest of the stuff, drove it up to SF, and brought the boxes into our new apartment. They also hauled away some items from our old apartment that we couldn't keep or donate. ~ the excellent ~ John and the team were prompt and friendly. They packed the items we needed help with quickly, and they treated our fragile items with care. They also lifted a couch over a fence because it didn't fit through the door - problem solving! And they were happy to pick up things from two stops: my old apartment and my roommate's old place. John was readily available through phone calls or texts and communicated well. ~ improvement ~ During the hauling process, our floor got scratched a bit. It was minor and no one noticed until the movers had left, so not sure how they would have handled it. Also, it would help if the movers label boxes they packed. A few unlabeled things ended up in the wrong room at our new place (not a big deal). ~ overall ~ Efficient moving service at a great price. I definitely recommend Mr J Moving.

Movers were 1.5 hours late, and I had to call a few times to verify they were coming. Once they did show up, they were efficient and they worked hard. Only thing is that they demanded 30$ tip for each mover (so extra 90 for 3 movers.) I would recommend them to a friend since they did a very nice job wrapping all furniture and did not break anything or scratch anything.

These movers were fantastic. The handled the furniture with care and their expertise. They followed our instructions and listened to our requests. They were polite and respectful. This was a long distance move from Bay Area to Northern California. The drive is about four hours each way and they arrived only five minutes after us. If you need the services of a moving company please call California Bear Moving Company!

They are obviously a 5 star rated company. They executed a fast move for us but the rate was fairly reasonable. I booked them a week ago but despite, having their busy time they fixed a schedule for me. It was a long distance move and there are very few movers to whom I could rely on. American Choice Van Lines proved their credibility to my brother. He moved from New York to Maryland and then after being referred by him I hired them to move from Santa Fe to Phoenix. They did awesome. I had experience before with so many companies who shows something but does something others. This mover doesn't belong to those types of companies. I strongly recommend them.

Long distance moving can often be very crucial. Some friends suggested me to sell all my stuffs before moving. I would have had to buy everything locally then. Thankfully there is one moving company who specializes in long distance moving. Best moving van lines has been in business for long enough to transport your valuables to pretty much any corner within the USA. I hear they even have special arrangement for people moving to whichever state. The men who work there seemed very enthusiastic and they knew their jobs very well. And I also must add that their quote was the lowest!

Great service. Scheduling my move was easy, Tim provided all necessary information and was courteous and professional throughout the conversation. On the moving day, two movers came on time, they called me before arriving too. It took them 1.5 hours to load my studio apartment and another hour to unload everything at my new apartment. They disassembled and put together my bed and dining table and blanket wrapped ALL of my furniture. Will definitely recommend to a friend.

    Ivan Hernandez did an amazing job with my move recently. Ivan was very professional and was very careful with my stuff. He showed up on time with his crew and they moved at lightning speed. All the crew were very professional, careful, kind and respectful. All in all, I hate to move and havn't had to for a long time. I always think about movers slamming my stuff around, BUT not this crew. Ivan and co.did a stand up job and we even had a laugh or two. I hope i don't have to move again, but if I did, or if I was you, I would hire Ivan without a doubt.

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
