MEAA movers were great, they showed up on time, took good care of my stuff, lift and drop my furniture gently. Highly recommended. The truck they have is good for one bedroom apartment.

Steve the owner was great with his communication. They were fast, careful and efficient. Only thing I would recommend is if that British guy (one of the movers) would be nicer and more courteous. He was not that nice. Steve and the other guy was very accommodating and nice.

I had to move a sofa set from one house to another. The movers arrived on time, were very careful with my furniture, carefully packing the materials well. They were very friendly and happy to be doing what they were doing, and accomplished their task quickly and carefully. I would definitely do business with Scott's team again in the future for a similar move.

I highly recommend Ddt movers! They ensured our move went smoothly and didn't mind staying an hour longer because we had so much stuff and underestimated the time. It was really impressive to see how easy they made our move look! :-)

This was my first time trying to hire a professional via Thumbtack platform and it was a very good experience. After submiting the request, I received 3 quotes from different movers, and Pavel was one of them. He stood out among the three because of his responsiveness and reasonable price. Before hiring him, I was a bit concerned given that he had only one review before. But Im glad that I decided to hire him. Pavel was very careful with my stuffs, especially my computer (they also provided a small blanket to cover my table top) He was flexible as well when I asked him if he could stop by Ikea and Living Spaces store for me to pick up some furniture. Overall, I give Pavel and his crew 5 stars for their professionalism. I'll definitely contact him again for future move

I have moved many times and always something went wrong, and Silicon Valley Luxury Moving delivered the most professional service I've ever seen. The movers were quick and extra careful wrapping my furniture and getting it moved through our narrow doorways and taking it upstrairs at our new townhouse. Everything was placed where we told them and nothing was damaged or even scratched. They used their equipment to get it done fast, so they finished even before the estimated time. These guys are providing excellent services for very competitive price. I will definitely recommend this moving company to all my friends and will use them for my future moves! Our movers were Bogdan and Sergey, thank you guys for the great job!

Communication was great. They were running late and kept me up to date on the new expected time. Finally a group of movers arrived and did the job in half the time I expected! Great job and I'll definitely use their services again.

We asked for a move out special from Main Movers last week and I'm happy to report that it has been the smoothest move for us! It took the guys 6/7 hours total, Julian and his guys were effective and sensitive. We've had terrible experiences before with moving companies but Main Movers we've been worry-free. the payment was also declared up front and there were no "surprise" fees. We are very happy with MM and recommend it to one and all.

I hired MP Movers (Marquiz) to assemble a 6 drawer IKEA dresser. He arrived right on time and was very polite. The dresser came in 3 different boxes which had to be moved downstairs to my daughter's room, which he did for me. He was so conscientious that at one point the instructions didn't match the materials and he brought this to my attention. He quoted me a flat fee and stuck to that. All in all, I couldn't have been happier and I will definitely hire MP Movers again. I highly recommend Marquiz and MP Movers.

Excellent service! From the initial phone call the representative was friendly and extra polite. The movers were on time and very careful. They wrapped most furniture with blankets and plastic after we already had wrapped in plastic! They were careful, polite and effective. No surprises with cost, exactly as expected and they explained and itemized everything. Would recommend and use again!

Your fast and careful service saved our day, thanks! Our original movers cancelled, and amazingly you all were available on extremely short notice. Was over 100F, and service was still top notch. Impressive work and we are grateful. Highly recommended.

From the moving appointment to the moving day we had great communication. The prices are extremely fair and worth everypenny. They’re costomer service was amazing. There was always a smile on the workers faces which made my time with them very enjoyable. On the moving day the workers were all on time, and ready to work.

They worked all day no complain for 12 hours. I do not know what I would have done withthout the help of Rafel and hos movers. This company is amazing.

Dragon Sea helped me during my move from Sunnyvale to San Mateo for a 2-bedroom apartment. They arrived early and were very courteous. The move took about 4 hours with 3 movers. Their service is all-inclusive, they even covered the furniture with protection at no additional cost. I 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.

      Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
