Mario and Juan are fantastic. They were punctual in their arrival. They are clean cut guys,no creeps. My original mover bailed on me last minute. Mario gave me a quote that was $160 less than my original mover!!! And we coodinated all of this 12 hrs before my move. In addition to moving my property, Mario and his partner also helped move my fridge into my neighbors apartment talk about a headache!!! All in all, the entire move took 3.5 hrs!!!! It was incredible. I have nothing but wonderful things to say about my experience and will continue to use Mario for any future moves.

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.

I couldn't be happier! Frank is extremely professional, he knows what he's doing and his rates are fantastic. Plus he's a extremely friendly guy--an attribute that can take a lot of stress away when moving into a new space and trying to assemble furniture etc. He was communicative throughout the day, showed up early and built a fairly complex IKEA bed in less than two hours. All at a great rate!! I could not recommend Frank enough. Thanks again sir!!

We are so glad we hired this company - our move was quite a big job for such a small space (one bedroom moving into a two)! All along the way we received great advice and assistance, and all three guys were hard working and ready to push through the long day. Solutions were easily found for a number of tricky furniture moving issues, allowing my husband and I to sleep soundly in our new home. Thanks so much!

Very convenient to get quite online. I just took pictures of what need to be moved and they gave me a quote within 24 hours.

Barry and his team of guys were amazing! My fiancé and I moved into a new house and we weren’t 100% sure about how we wanted the furniture arranged. These guys were totally happy to shift things around for us here and there until we were totally happy. Really amazing considering all the heavy lifting and hard work. I would most definitely use Flash moving again and will reconmend then to anyone I know who’s in the process of moving. Thanks again guys!

He moved a large, heavy credenza. It was turned down by 3 charitable organizations that wasted my time by assuring me on the phone it would be removed, but each time their movers rejected it. Brett is careful, professional and pleasant.

It was a last minute moving request. We have booked an appointment with other moving company, but they didnt show up in the last minute. These guys really helped us. They quoted the lowest for moving between LA and Irvine out of 10 other moving companies that i talked to. The loading just took around 1 and half hours for one bed and unloadingn was faster than that. This is my second moving in last two years and all the previous movers were hourly based and took 2-3 hours just for loading alone. Over all it was a happy experience. I would like to recommend these guys to anyone!

I found them on Thumbtack and Michael and Mot did a very good job moving my apartment across town. They were very hard workers and did everything from packing my hanging clothes, wrapping all my furniture, and even fit my couch through a doorway that seemed impossible to fit through. .  Overall, they got the job done well, worked hard and took care of every part of getting my things from Point A to Point B.

Honestly I would recommend these guys over and over again. I called them with a 24 hour notice of moving a 1bdr and they were the only moving company to be able to accommodate my needs. I had Edward and Sergei as my movers and these guys were professional, friendly and hard working and made this whole stressful situation into a more relaxing experience. They handled my belongings with great care and took the time to make sure I understood all that was being done.

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!

All I can say is wow these guys are great! I was planning on doing the move from Los Angeles to San Francisco on my own, but once I found out how much it would cost me to rent a truck and buy all the boxs as well as equipment need to do the job I was left dumbfounded. It's turn out it was a lot better to just hire a company. This moving company-was able to squeeze me in last mintue when others would not with out charge me this crazy fee.They were able to move a lot of my large furniture like if it was notting. Over all I did not have a single negtive remark to say. The whole experence was enjoyable as far as any move goes. I would recommand these guys in a heart beat. Once again thank you Moober moving company.

They arrived a little late, due to traffic, which was fine. The three men: Elmer, Alex, and Afir were competent, knowledgeable, and hard-working. They worked together effectively and transported everything without any significant issues. We moved into an upstairs apartment, so they effectively managed the piano, refrigerator, and large sofa challenges. We're moving into the apartment while we house hunt and will be hiring them back for the big move.

My Clutter team was just outstanding. DeAndre and Jay were so careful, thoughtful and organized in packing up my son’s apartment. These men are pro’s! I highly recommend “Clutter” for anyone who wants a smooth packing experience! Do not hesitate to purchase the packing supplies. I would have bought 20 moving boxes and some tape for all that was provided by purchasing supply package from Clutter. Strong, clean boxes, fresh packing blankets, packing tape. “Clutter” delivered on everything they promised! I’m so grateful (and relieved) I choose “Clutter

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.
