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.

All Round Professional Moving Company sent two guys to handle my long distance move. From Long Beach, CA to the Bay Area. I spent a lot of time talking to Jane who was extremely helpful and explained things like 'double-drive time.' One of the requests I had was that the movers pick my stuff up and drop it off the same day. It's about 5 1/2 hours driving time which they were able to accomodate. I agreed to pay a flat a rate of $1,700, and if the movers took longer than 6 hours to load and unload I would be charged additional fees per hour over. We agreed to have the movers start between 7 am - 7:30am. They should up at 7:45 which was fine because they started the time once they begun. The movers brought boxes, wardrobe boxes, blankets, plastic wrap, tape and dollies. I did most of the packing myself the night before. They used blankets and plastic wrap to protect my furniture. I offered them coffee and waters but they only wanted water. They didn't stop for breaks once. They finished loading at 9:20 am. They arrived at my new place at exactly 6pm. Unloaded within 2 hours so I wasn't charged extra hourly rates. The only thing could've gone better is the payment. When I booked the move I was charged a 50$ deposit to hold my appointment with them. I was told that I would be charged the flat fee we agreed upon later that day; but that didn't happen. Due to work I had to stay in Long Beach for a couple extra days so I did not follow them to my new home. My parents instead were there to help them out. Once the move was finished, the movers asked my parents to pay them. Then played phone tag for the next 20 minutes and spoke to three different people on when I was going to pay. One of the managers called me and said I needed to fill out a payment authorization form. Which I wasn't able to do because it was Sunday at 8pm and I didn't have a computer with me. Long story short I gave them my card number over the phone and had my parents fill out the rest of the form and then texted a picture of the form to the manager. It would've been easier if they had just charged me from the beginning or gave me the form to fill out when I saw them that morning. Other than that everything was great. I haven't seen or inspected my stuff yet but nothing was broken as far as I know! I would definitely hire them again!

Jesse and Frankie were my movers. First, I requested the News Moving Co. with Dalila, and she is very promptly and responsiveness to my messages. I ordered TWO pick up points which were my apartment and my boyfriend apartment. So, it is very helpful for both of us that we have people help us move all our belonging and furniture because we both don't know how to drive, and this is our first time renting an apartment together. Then, we do not actually know how to put all stuffs fit in one car. Jesse and Frankie are very professional, trustful, liable and punctual as I made an appointment. I did not​ have a chance to check up on them when they moved my stuff into my new apartment. I was surprised by how they organized the boxes. They did an excellent job. I am so happy and grateful that I found News Moving Co. I would recommend News Moving Co. to my friends or others who need help for moving. Thank you for your services! - Fiona

Larry is great!!! He and his son helped my parents move their small 1 bedroom apartment over this past weekend in 90 -100 degree weather. He delivered as promised and was extremely professional. He treated my folks and their belongings with respect and care. He also showed up on time; started quickly and got the job done quicker than expected. His rates are very reasonable for local moves. I have never had to hire movers before - always got family or friends to pitch in. So needless to say I was somewhat worried after hearing some bad stories about moving companies. However, I would definitely hire Larry again for my next move. Thanks again to Larry's Quality Moving!!!

I called them on a thursday evening, and they were on my doorstep the next morning at 8:30 am on the dot. The two gentlemen hustled efficiently and had everything packed up in good time. Nothing was damaged, all furniture was wrapped and protected with care. Unloading was even faster than packing up! Both movers were fast, efficient, kind, and it was the best moving experience I've had.

I hired Muscle Movers to move an upright piano. They had a competitive and reasonable price for a quick but difficult job. I noticed immediately how professional and courteous Christopher was over the phone and decided to hire them. The day of the move, they arrived 15 minutes early and completed the job quickly yet carefully. I would hire Muscle Movers again and will also recommend them to anyone that needs a great moving company.

A special thank you to Mike and Shaw for their kindness and assistance through a difficult transition. They made it much easier. From the company's first point of contact holding my hand and easing my fears and being calm and comforting while the owners and movers went above and beyond my expectations by helping me get everything packed and safely shipped out even after I had to leave the area. I had 2 days to find help and get my things shipped. It was a very stressful event but Mike & Shaw took away a great deal of pressure and for that I am forever grateful and have nothing but warm feelings and good things to say.

We had our floors refinished and needed to move furniture out of a few rooms into another room. I got many quotes that were expensive for this type of job. PTM Movers were reasonable and helpful. Dave is super-responsive and got back to me right away. The guys showed up on time and did the job very well. We're having them come back to move everything back into place. If you need a mover you can rely on, give PTM a call!

Just finished our move with this company and besides a few hiccups with miscommunication through (Chris or Alex the dispatchers or owners, not really sure who I was talking to the whole time) we are pretty pleased. First I chatted back and fourth on Yelp about the price quote and he had scheduled me and never told me what time so I had to call and approve the time since he just assumed his chosen time would work with me and never told me what time it was. Then I made it very clear I needed 30 minute notice before the guys show up, since my stuff was in a storage and I would have to have time to meet them there to let them in. Somehow, even though I had called him multiple times from my cell phone he managed to write it down wrong. Therefore I was not informed the movers were coming until they were there and I called the company and they called them to get the correct number. Anyhow we were VERY VERY PLEASED WITH CYLE AND ELIO as our movers, they were FRIENDLY, EFFICIENT and VERY PROFESSIONAL. They moved some very heavy things of ours with a long walking distance to the upstairs apartment and were really great, I just wish we knew we could have used 3 guys to take some of the load off these two and get it done a bit quicker. Lastly, the company did meet us in the middle and started our time 15 minutes later because of the mishap in the beginning, which saved me 30

I can't say enough good things about Gayle and company! They helped me (basically, they did everything!) move into my house after horrible movers left it all a shambles. I was totally overwhelmed and over emotional and Gayle arrived with a sense of humor and a "nothing shocks me" attitude which was just what I needed. In a short time she had my house completely sorted out, beautifully unpacked, and organized. More importantly, I never felt judged, put upon, or anything other than totally supported. I highly recommend this business. Thank you, Gayle. You're an actual organizational angel.

Appointment arrival time was between 7-9am. Four packers arrived at 7:45am and quickly realized that I am a packrat and hadn't pre-packed anything, and therefore needed a full pack, so the lead guy quickly called and asked their home base to send more help. He assured me that they would try their best to get it all done today, and they started right away. I don't remember all their names, but I do remember Micah, because he and the lead guy had to carry the heaviest stuff. The fifth guy arrived at around 1pm, and between the five of them, they packed up ALL of our stuff. And it was A LOT OF STUFF - big, heavy furniture and small stuff strewn all over. For them to pack up a 3-bedroom/3 bath (extremely cluttered) home in 9 hours was a bit of a miracle. They even carefully wrapped and boxed everything, took pictures of all the stuff they packed and now I can see pictures of all my "inventory." To top it off, the movers were super polite, nice, careful and efficient.

This was my first experience with having to move a piano. I looked around for movers and got a few quotes. Velazquez was fast at responding and quick to give me a quote. Their prices were excellent! I loved the fact that I was able to schedule the move even while I was out of town. They puntual and kept me informed every step of the way. I will definitely use them again and would highly recommend them!!!

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.
