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.

Roy was FANTASTIC to work with. He was proactive and very professional. The building I was moving out of has an HOA that can be quite a pain to deal with regarding move paperwork, and Roy was extremely accommodating to provide insurance docs etc. On the day of the move, the moving crew was on time, fast but not too fast that there was any carelessness, and very careful by wrapping all my furniture etc. I would 100% recommend Top Shelf to my friends, and use them again in future moves.

Working with MovingWithLove moving company was an absolute pleasure. I had a serious problem I needed to solve, which required that I find a mover within a 24 hour period, and that the mover would work with me remotely (the move in San Diego while I was out of state). Not only did MWL respond to my SOS request through Thumbtack immediately, they then made room for me in their schedule the very next day, worked with me to find the most economical way to make our move, and then showed up spot-on-time and just got to work. I’ll always be grateful to this crew for the kindness and professionalism they exhibited through their flexibility and good will. I needed help, and MovingWithLove provided the personal and professional integrity I could trust.

I was looking for a piano mover and from past experience knew these are rare and also that moving a piano can be difficult without proper tools and personnel. While I had never used Thumbtack I gave it a try and found it easy and responsive. Almost immediately I received a response from Thumbtack saying such piano movers are rare in my area. However almost immediately afterward I heard from Angel of Flash movers who provided a very detailed and complete proposal. We communicated after that and he was prompt in responding and very professional and friendly in his communications, which instilled confidence in making our plans for the move. On the day of the move he was prompt and efficient and did a perfect job of making the delivery. I would use him again and highly recommend him to others.

Using Cube Moving was very simple and fast. I called about 2 weeks prior to my move, and I did not have a "moving to" location yet as I am putting my things into storage, and hadn't secured a place yet. I called Cube and explained my situation--it was absolutely no problem. The day arrived for the movers to come--they were a few minutes late, but had called about 20 minutes prior to the agreed time to let me know they would be late...honestly I did not even consider a few minutes past, late. However, still very courteous to call and I appreciated their promptness. I was moving a one-bedroom, and 2 young guys came, I believe their names were Andre and Johan. They were very friendly, and most importantly thorough yet efficient. The entire move from my home to my storage unit (which was about 6 mi from my home) took 3 hours almost to the dot. Because most companies make you pay a 3 hour minimum anyways, I paid exactly what was quoted for me. Also because I used yelp, I was able to use a $20 discount being offered on yelp at the time. The price was excellent, service was excellent, and I felt my furniture was safe in their hands! Thanks guys!! You were awesome!

I used Thumbtack to connect with SD Royal Movers. They gave me a flat quote for the 6 furniture items, no extra fees for mileage/fuel. While other companies were requiring a 2-3hr minimum. They were easy to work with from the beginning. On moving day I had Edber and Hector. They were efficient and careful with my items. They were friendly communicators and I appreciated when they would confirm where I liked the furniture placed. I will definitely use their services again.

I would highly recommend using Rod Rodriguez to anyone who needs furniture moved or moving out of their house. Rod is highly professional, very pleasant, hard-working, affordable, honest, straightforward, and meticulous about preparing the area before undergoing the task. His moving assistant, Rob, was also fantastic! Such hard workers, and not even a single scratch on the furniture or the house. It was not an easy job because they needed to carry two large pieces of furniture up a hairpin-turn staircase. We are moving from our home sometime within the next two to three years and I will definitely call Rod again!

What a great local company!!! We're a military family and have been through MANY moves & Reliable is top notch. One of the best experiences we've ever had. We worked with Dan before our move. He communicated with us very clearly and we knew exactly how things would operate. On moving day, Seth and his crew were awesome! It was the Saturday this July when it poured rain for most of the day. The crew was super respectful of our possessions and our new home. Friendly, hard working guys who knew what they were doing. They were all very patient with our questions and concerns. Even after the move, Dan handled follow up questions promptly and to our complete satisfaction. In my book, there is no other moving companies in San Diego. This outfit is top notch. I would recommend them to my own family, friends, and coworkers without hesitation. Reliable Movers is aptly named and we're SO happy we chose them for our move!!

Great moving experience.. My friend reccomended using this company. We needed to move 4 bedroom house, so we called Dominant Moving one week ahead . They send us 3 guys for $ 93 an hour. They arrived on time. Their supervisor explained once again all terms of moving. I signed few papers and move began. They were so swift. While I was signing the paperwork, they began loading boxes. Then they wrapped all furniture with their materials, protected my flat TVs and mirrors, took apart beds and then put them back together at my new house. Furniture had NO single scratch after they arranged it in my new house.Finally it took 5 hours and 40 minutes to move me.. My bill was about $560, less then my budget.. so I Saved some money. Great Job.. I would recommend using this company!

Dave Harkins did a fantastic one-man job of moving our piano from one room to another. He was careful and no mishaps occurred as the heavy piano was expertly perched onto his dolly and moved across wood flooring onto an uneven tile flooring surface and placed in its new location. I would absolutely hire Dave in the future for any kind of job requiring the moving of heavy or awkward items. As a bonus, he's just a nice guy and was right on time as agreed.

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!

We will be starting tomorrow for the moving process. As it sits at this moment because we have not met or moved yet. The process of getting this started with cloud 9 is awesome. They have worked with us so far. Very nice and courteous. Very generous and kind. Moving is very hard work. When this is all done, I will be able to write a review. But, so far I have zero complaints and only good words.

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!!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
