I can not say enough good things about Safe Moving! After reading horror stories about some of the major moving companies I was a little worried about finding one to move my stuff cross state. Safe Moving blew past my expectations. Nothing was damaged, they came on time, and moved out/in my stuff in record time. So happy I went with Safe Moving!

I would rate Albion as superior. They were on time and extremely efficient (hence overall lower cost). I have moved several several times and I only wish other moving companies could take a page from their book.

I experienced excellent service with Leclair Moving moving company today, 8/10/18. To be honest, I had a list several moving companies, but when I called Leclair to inquire about pricing, I spoke with Horatio who was more than happy to answer all th questions I had. He was kind, professional, polite and patient with all my questions. When I met him in person (he was one of the movers) he was a delight to talk to you. Horatio was what made me choose Leclair moving company. It’s employees like these who make a difference just On the initial contact! If considering a move, Inhighly recommend Leclair Moving Services! Thank you, Horatio and Kevin, for a great move. You made it so easy! My daughter so appreciates it and so do I! Rebecca Dahlgren

Do not hesitate to call G B Construction for gutter cleaning and replacement and leaf guards. They are prompt, quick, thorough, friendly and professional. Their charges are reasonable, and they do not upsell. I understand that they also do tile and wood floors, painting and household moving. I will be using them again and again.

I used this service a week ago and I will say they did an excellent job. They were on time, before starting they spoke to me about the cleaning products they used and gave me a variety of options because I have small kids and they are even retuning to help me organize. If you have a busy life call these ladies! Total life savers! I don’t think my house has been this clean in months!!

They were so completely wonderful and professional. They met me at IKEA to get my cumbersome bed. They assembled part of it at their location and then showed up the next day to put together the pre-assembled pieces. That made it really convenient for me in my small house and kept it quiet as well. They were so friendly, kept to their times we had established, and professional every step of the way. I look forward to using them for other building/handyman/etc tasks at both my home and my business. Highly recommended!

They moved an impossible gigantic and extremely heavy piece of furniture thru a small doorway and sharp turns in a tiny area any up L steps to my second floor den. I was told it couldn't be done before these guys came along! I really can't believe they did it. They were the nicest guys. I put in my request at the last minute too. I would highly recommend. Good price too.

I was referred to Tamah Vega by an organizer out of San Francisco who spoke very highly of her. Tamah is in the east bay which made it convenient for me as I live in San Leandro. We hit it off immediately on the phone and got along great in person. She's easy going and has a great sense of humor. I was nervous about how she would work with me once we got to emotionally charged items. She NEVER made me get rid of things; rather she asked questions that helped me make decisions about whether or not I wanted to keep things. I have 25 years of accumulated stuff and although we're not done yet, my house feels so much better and I am much happier in it than I've been in years. After working with Tamah for awhile, I am able to organize better with all her tips. She makes recommendations for organizing and will research to find tools that work specifically for my needs. She can be as much or as little involved as I want and will give me homework, so I can work at my own pace. Tamah is a wealth of information and has a fantastic website which is a great tool for re-cycling (rather than throwing out) what you don't need. I highly recommend her - whether you have a small or a large project, whether it's about paperwork or things or a combination of them. She moves at your pace in a gentle non-threatening way and is up to any job. Give her a call; it will be one of the best organizational decisions you make.

Love this company! James is a true professional. He let me know by text every step of the way of our upcoming move and how soon the movers would be there. In today's world, you rarely find the professional conduct, ethics and follow-through like James' company. His workers were friendly, fast and efficient and nothing was damaged. I will use this company again and recommend them highly.

Cherish Moving did a fantastic job moving our things without incident. We had a long distance move so were hesitant to use them instead of a national moving company. This was much better! They were on time and the move out/move in job went well. They are fully certified and insured and we will definitely use them again. Emily and Sergio were fantastic to work with, very responsive and helped us out with everything. I recommend them for either an interstate or intrastate move!

    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.
