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!

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.

They made my day go by fast and efficient. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone. Thank you Kyle for conducting a very smooth and effective move. Thanks again Fresh Start Movers!

My Move did a long distance move for me from California to Boston. I have about a studio's worth of things, and their quote was the lowest by several hundred dollars. Richard was very helpful and responsive in helping me arrange my move, and they picked up my things from California with no problem. The reason I'm rating them four stars is because once my things were picked up from the California location, it was difficult to get updates on the progress of my move. Every time I wanted an update, I had to request one, even though I was told I would receive updates closer to the delivery date (at the time I requested the first update, the drivers were a day away from Massachusetts). Planning the delivery takes coordination, and I would have appreciated more communication towards the end of the process. Otherwise, my things arrived safely.

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.

ML Movers were professional, on-time, and efficient movers. Working with Miguel was actually delightful. From the moment I started my project on thumbtack, Miguel was incredibly responsive. His quote was very straightforward and easy to understand. He runs his business professionally, sending the contract, insurance and other legal documents via DocuSign before the move. He was also able to accommodate my request for a move on a very short notice (less then 7 days from first speaking to Miguel to the move date). He and his team of two movers arrived 5min early and since I had packed a good amount of items they were able to finish packing and package up my furniture, move and reassemble my furniture in 2.5 hours (my move was only 2 miles away). His team was even able to move my really heavy couch up 2 flights of stairs. He wrapped up with a final checklist review and was on his way. He also gave me a discount for paying cash. Overall would highly recommend Miguel and ML Movers!!

J was amazing at communication. He showed up on time, actually he was about 15mins early. This is amazing considering the last movers I hired were about 4 hours late, but not J. I hired J to handle a within the same complex move. He and his partner moved a two story apt on one side of our complex to a glad one floor apartment on the opposite side. They were fast, no nonsense and again reliable. I would not hesitate to hire them again.

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.

    I had a complicated move, from two locations to one and over a long distance. These guys were so thoughtful and careful with both loading and unloading, and I knew my things would be secure. It was such a relief to have it all arrive safely. I highly recommend them!

      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.

      I have used North Bay Movers several times in past years and this past move was the best yet. Movers were energetic, competent, patient and didn't hit a wall or gouge any furniture. They worked well as a team and seemed to enjoy their job. They moved one truck of furniture and after loading it, moved another near truckload from the second floor to the main floor with not a hitch. I am very pleased with the way David runs his company. Hopefully I will not be moving again for a long time, but he would be my first and only choice. Since you asked for what could have been better, I will say that I didn't know I would be charged extra for shrink wrap. A small negative in a large positive experience.

      Paul and Katelyn managed all of our requirements with timely responses and quality service, at a price far better than the other quotes we received. They even dealt with an unexpected snowstorm without missing their delivery time. We would highly recommend Paul and his company for any long distance move.

      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.
