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.

Our movers were great. They communicated with me before the move to make sure they brought everything they would need for our move. They were running 15 minutes late on the day of the move, but gave us a heads up. The two movers were efficient, worked hard and got the job done well. They were also pleasant and in good spirits the whole time which made moving day a little more tolerable. Thank you!

The 2 movers were very friendly, thorough, and careful with my personal belongings. Due to unexpected traffic jams, the movers called and texted me ahead of time to alert that they might be late. They kept me in the loop on their arrival status. The movers were efficient. It did not take long to move my 1 bedroom apartment. And it took even less time to unload my things in the new apartment. I had some bulk items for donation that Salvation Army wouldn’t take. But the movers were kind enough to haul those things away as well. I’m always skeptical of services that charge by the hour. But this unit worked efficiently, as previously noted. I use online services quite a bit, but rarely leave comments. However, I was so thankful to have found News Moving Co., that I wanted to sing their praises (online of course). We all have so many choices of vendors that it is easy to be overwhelmed. I like to give the small/local companies my business when possible, and I was rewarded in the professional yet personal service that this company showed me. If you are needing to move small items or have a really big moving project, News Moving Co. is the way to go. They are fast, friendly and affordable priced. I’m hoping to stay in my new place a few years, but when it’s time to move, New Moving Co. will be the first call I make!

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!!!

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.

Highly suggest this moving company. The movers were efficient, careful and very caring. This move was for my grandmother with Alzheimer's to get her from her 4 bedroom house into a 2 bedroom apartment. It was a very stressful situation but the movers went above and beyond to make my grandma feel comfortable and secure. I am beyond impressed and can't thank them enough for helping us in such a professional yet caring manor. Look no further for a 5 star moving company because it is all here.

I have moved many times and Happy Home Moving company is the best I've ever had. The office staff responded immediately to my inqiry about their services. On the day of the move the movers called 30 minutes before arriving just like they said they would. Upon arrival, the crew got straight to work and didn't dilly daddle at all. The movers were very conscientious and wrapped everything requiring extra protection. I will definitely hire these movers for my next move.

The movers at AmerApex Moving could not have done a better job moving our belongings over 2,000 miles away. The crew was on time, polite, very careful, and kept the move fun and in good spirits. Nothing was damaged and the price did not budge a penny. Thank you again for making my move across country stress free. I will be recommending AmerApex Moving to all my friends and family!

Jay and his associate, I forgot the name, were great. I will definitely recommend and use them again next year. They were quick and efficient with moving my belongings. There were a couple blemishes but I did not expect everything to be perfect. Their supervisor called me after the move was completed and provided a discount on my next move for the minor issues. I appreciate feeling valued as a customer. The movers worked their butts off. Again, I will recommend and use again.

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.
