I used JP Moving Services for a quick small job of moving some heavy items from garage to top floor. Jiri was on time and very careful with my items. He's very personable and I appreciate him taking the time for a smallish job. I will use him again when needed and I will happily recommend him to others !!

Though the workers got stuck at another move, Ricardo stayed in touch and kept me thoroughly updated. He also gave me a discount for the trouble and once the team arrived, they were really quick, cheerful, and thorough. Finished the whole move in just over 2 hours! Also, they came with wardrobe boxes, blankets, and other useful equipment. I know that movers showing up with none of what they promised can be an issue, but with Larro's you get full service! I definitely recommend them!

Professional, friendly and understanding- the pod arrived late and they wanted to pick the pod up early so the movers had to work quickly and they did!

Patrick was on time and extremely easy to work with. As I kept adding on to the job {with added pay:)}, he never indicated anything but a can do attitude. I would recommend Patrick for all types of work from moving heavy items to assembling furniture in a professional manner.

Steve and his moving partner showed up on time & moved our items in a timely manner to the truck. We moved 1.3 miles away & the unloading took a bit longer we had a one bedroom condo with a couch bed, desk and a table w/ 4 stools along with some boxes from kitchen & bathroom the reason I gave only 4 stars was because of the length of time it took to unload our items it took 8 hours from 10-6 2 hours to load and 5 hours to unload????and cost us about $200 than we were expecting. That came as a shock but the service provided and the movers were kind to our items and hospitable. I highly recommend Albion moving but suggest a timeframe and pricing beforehand.

Peter and Artur were professional movers. They were able to disassemble and re-assemble my furniture within minutes without instructions (which took me ~2hours at best just putting together). I'm definitely recommending them to my friends when it comes time for them to move. The whole process of relocation could not have been made any easier. These guys are on my list for who to call when it comes time to move!

Professional moving and handyman company. I hired Harp and his movers when my movers did not show up. They came within 2 hours after responding my call. They moved my 750 pound piano, heavy furniture and sofa bed from 4th floor narrow stairs case to 2nd floor move in place. They also do handyman service. They also mount tvs and hang pictures at my new place. I recomend their service.

Michael was great to work with ! I had him move heavy furniture to the third floor. It all fit in a tiny elevator - but he could have done it up the stairs if needed. Very responsive , fast (but careful) load and unload and fantastic price ! I highly recommend DMC Hauling !

We were so grateful and happy with our furniture movers. They understand how to pack a trailer and move the items in a timely efficient manner. all of us at one time or another have injured our backs moving something. These guys were worth every penny they charged and we were thrilled to tip them above and beyond!!

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!

The movers were very fast and professional. The only problem I had was that even though I had explicitly asked for packing services in my request and also messaged the owner about packing -- the guys that showed up seemed to have no idea that they would need to do any packing. Once that was cleared up with the owner, they did proceed to pack very efficiently and move quickly.

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.

Hired Wally's to move heavy appliances - they did a good job overall, and we're willing to negotiate a fair resolution to compensate for some damage to my wall. Would recommend.

My movers just left and requested a review as quickly as possible. I assured them that I would provide then with a 10 out of 5 star rating. Most importantly, the young men were respectful to my husband and I. I am 67 years old so I was on the young men from start to finish - making sure they were respectful of my belongings and home. They wrapped all of my furniture and assisting with packing items that were not packed upon their arrival. I did notice a small hole in the wall at the pick up address. Tight corners so I did not complain. But I did want them to know that I noticed. Other than that, my belongings arrived in great shape. I will recommend to my friend Margaret who will be moving in about 2 weeks. I informed her to request Mark and Stephen. Thanks again for your hard work. Spend your tip wisely.

We ended up not going with them since we were looking for truck and movers for transporting a big couch, but fast response was very much appreciated. Thanks!

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.
