Mario and the group are so smart, so professional, so strong, so nice, so hard working, so great! I give 5 stars only because there are only 5 stars for me to choose. With 3 people moving, the price is very very fair, no any hiding fees. He is the only one I would recommend for moving. Talked with a person who wanted to move from northern CA to southern CA with another moving company, the price is almost double as what Mario's group. It's the NO.1 in my moving history. Thank you Mario and your group!

I called Wesley on Saturday morning after another mover flaked out. Wesley made it happen! The next day at 11am, our moving crew was on the spot! Wesley and Shift It, are life savers!. A few nicks and dings, but we made our move, and we are happy. That Shift It crew is so much fun, my room mate bought lunch, and we are planning to invite them for the housewarming party!

Moving is so stressful,and moving in 100+ degree heat makes it more so. Tony's drivers were so amazing, they took care of everything and kept our spirits up, by staying positive and keeping us laughing. I would recommend them for anyone looking for amazing movers in So Cal.

Excellent customer service! We had a misunderstanding about a small stand-up piano that the movers wanted to charge me extra for, even though I had already discussed it with a customer service agent. I called Mike and he took care of everything so quick, I was extremely grateful. I have used movers before, and most were just OK, one was awwwwful, but THIS move was very nearly painless, for the first time EVER in my life. I gave the movers a very strict timeframe to get things done, since you pay by the hour, and they really tried to honor what I was asking. I mean, I was also watching them like a hawk the whole time, but they were really trying and working hard. I really appreciate their effort and the great customer service. A+ Only down side was that one piece of furniture did get damanged while in their truck because it fell over while they were stacking things - I watched it happen while they were loading everything up, but honestly this has happened to at least one piece of furniture every time I've moved, it's just part of moving. This is why I buy cheap IKEA furniture. For the price, this was a great company to use. I would recommend to friends.

Ron contacted me within minutes after I submitted my request on Thumbtack. I needed help moving a dresser to the upper level in my apartment. He was available the next morning. The price was very reasonable. He showed up at the time we agreed; I couldn't believe how smooth it all went. Definitely giving highest mark!

Brett was fantastic in completing our junk removal job. It turned out to be a more difficult job than expected, and it was a particularly hot day. Yet Brett completed the job for the original quoted price and stuck with it until finished. We strongly recommend him to anyone seeking a trustworthy, hardworking, and reliable resource for waste removal or hauling.

Mike and Shaw responded immediately to my thumbtack inquiry and were able to accommodate any last-minute scheduling. They were extremely professional and reasonably priced. Moving is always stressful, but if you have to do it and you live in the greater LA area, I highly recommend calling Make and Shaw.

Had an amazing move, just wish I would have known you get a discount with cash payment. They did such a great job and stuck to their word so I still give them 5 stars. I had to reschedule twice due to escrow and they didn't even hassle me about it. Would hire again.

I had a lot of things to be stressed out about this weekend, but moving was not one of them! The guys at New Life did an excellent job picking up my life and hauling it across the bay. They were careful with my fragile stuff. I had already packed things before they came, but they did their due diligence to double-tape some containers they didn't think were secured enough. I appreciated that! The movers were really friendly and weren't shy about striking up conversation- about painting (I have a lot) and about how to not get scammed out of a security deposit, about checking in with me to make sure the furniture and everything is where they should be. They came to my car to help me with my bags and smaller boxes, not just relegating themselves to the moving tuck. I can tell these guys worked really hard. The whole affair took a little over 3 hours, and they came well within their arrival window of 8-10 am (Arrived at 830am) so I had plenty of my day left to organize. Would definitely work with them again! Thank you again!!

I was very surprised on the quick response I received from Conrad's hauling and delivery service. With a last-minute move, he was able to arrange a team to move my things with the short notice and was also flexible with how I wanted to go about the move. The day prior to moving, Conrad made an appointment to view the propertyi was moving out of at no additional cost for a quick pre-inspection. At that time he also provided me additional boxes and packing supplies which I didn't think I needed at the time (and yes, I needed it). Considering I was not prepared for the moving company to move all of my things the day of, they were able to pack additional boxes for me. I appreciated their professionalism and quality of work, wrapping any large items that were not boxed to prevent any damage during the move. With a difficult situation at the new property, Conrad was able to come back at a later time to help me finish the moving process. This was greatly appreciated as I was not able to move some of my belongings by myself. I highly recommend this company and have kept Conrad's business cards handy for friends and/or any future moves.

Thank you to Jason and his team, I couldn't have asked for harder working, clean, fast, joy to be around workers! You truly took the dread out of moving at an affordable cost; a full packing job, disassembled/assembled furniture, HEAVY furniture up my fire escape into my apartment in, the Arts District of DT Long Beach. Stairs, stairs, stairs didn't stop this team, Gilbert, you ROCK!! If I could give 10 stars I would!! Thank you and I will use you again and recommend you to everyone!

I would highly recommend this company to anyone! I was left high and dry on a Friday afternoon at the end of the month by another moving company. I spoke to Felix that same day and he was able to set me up for the next morning! From the initial call and follow up to the actual movers-Marvin and Caesar-everything was handled efficiently and professionally. I also had to move approximately 100 miles away and everything was handled seamlessly. This company saved me and insured I was into my new home and ready to start my new job on time. Call them! You will be glad you did.

Great worker. Ben gets to the point and wastes no time. I’m happy with his work. The only think I had a problem with was that my appointment was at 9:30pm the day before and I didn’t move until the next morning. But he made up for it and I’m really thankful. Keep up the good work. Also FYI they charge extra for plastic for the mattress, which I wasn’t aware of or told by the girl that I made the appointment with. Also it isn’t an actual moving truck but I didn’t have a lot of stuff the attachment that he had to his truck worked. But other than that they are great and cheap.

Really fast movers! They do not play around. They even showed up 10 minutes early (that literally never happened with any other moving company before) George and his helper moved my 2 bdr from Studio City to Irvine in 6 hours (plus double drive something). Not one lazy moment....they knocked that shit out lol Total was $700 which is damn near good price for how fast it was! Best moving and packing experience ever!

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.
