When you decide to book them the contract has a clause that you must tip 20%. It's mandatory. We would have tipped anyway but I just didn't like that it was in the contract. Also if you pay by credit card it's an additional 5% fee. The team arrived 10-15 minutes early and got started right away. They start by having you sign a maximum amount that the price should not exceed. We moved from a tri level 2 bdrm 2.5 bath in SSF to 2 story home in San Jose. I am pregnant so I couldn't finish packing but they offered packing services also which we took advantage of. You just have to pay for the hourly rate, of course. They also provided wardrobe boxes, wrap your furniture for you, disassemble and reassemble your furniture, which was a huge plus. They were making good time until they thought they finished loading the truck. We still had a quarter of the kitchen we wanted them to pack and move for us. They ran out of boxes due to a miscommunication between myself and the owner. So we decided to pause for lunch and they went to get more boxes. We offered to go to Home Depot close by but I guess it's in their policy that they need to provide their own boxes (unless you had them already). They didn't charge us for the lunch time. The guys are a good team. I would definitely refer them but you just need to be clear in what you need/want from them. I could have been more prepared and clearly communicate with the owner. We didn't mind paying the additional time. As long as we did the move at one time, that was all we cared about and they were able to get the job done after some negotiation.

Working with Two Friends Movers was incredible! They showed up on time and immediately started getting to work packing everything efficiently and meticulously. We hadn't finished putting everything in boxes yet but they helped us pack and brought the right equipment and extra tape and boxes. They unpacked everything at our new place carefully without damaging a single item. Payment was super easy (they accept credit cards for an extra 4%). From start to finish, it only took 4 hours to move our entire apartment. And they did this in the rain! I highly recommend working with these guys!

I hired Albion Moving and Storage for my move on my first home. They came on time (early even!) and was very responsive with any questions or concerns I had. I was stressed with working and packing, but their 2 man crew moved everything I needed so quickly. I have extremely narrow stairs in my new home and they did not make a scratch on it. I'm very impressed with their efficiency and quality of work. Definitely would recommend to anyone and will reach out to them in any future moves!

I hired the moving and packing services of Scott. Scott was very prompt replying to all my messages (usually within 5 minutes) and we were able to setup a time and date for the move quickly. I requested a specific time for the move to be done because of my unique circumstances, and Scott accommodated the request. 2 movers turned up right on time. They were super friendly and accommodated all my requests. They brought all the packing material and boxes. They spent every minute packing/moving and the move was done very quickly. I highly recommend Scott and his moving/packing services. I would definitely recommend him to all my friends and also use him again for any move.

A2B Movers must be one of the best moving companies. Their movers were expert and experienced. On moving day, they arrived on time. The crew knew what they were doing. The moving crews showed respect to our belongings. They brought all supporting tools to get help for packing. A2B movers have very qualified staffs. I am sure, they will never dissatisfy you if you were to choose them. If you want to get reasonable price with extreme customer care, then I am sure you have to go with a company who is strongly spoken for. I recommend them for sure…

Jeff and Jesus (Dan was not available) were simply fantastic. Very friendly and exactly what we needed. They showed up on time and unloaded our Relo packing cube, bringing everything into our new apartment. They were professional (came prepared with their own tools), and handled our items with great care. They even helped put together a few of our tables which was a big time and stress reliever. Would definitely work with them again!

Michael was very prompt and thorough in describing his services and he kept his word. I needed help packing up my stuff for a move while I was unexpectedly out of town. He put my mind at ease by packing everything up in a very organized and helpful manner. He listened to what I asked for but also operated independently. This put my mind at ease and took a huge weight off my shoulders. Definitely recommend!

overall lots of care to packing our large art and piano. One thing that was a bit disconcerting - a very expensive and brand new Briggs and Riley suitcase was packed by them and somehow never made it out of the box. Also, pack your own wardrobe boxes. They stuff a whole bunch of other things in with the clothes and about 1/2 of my professional and dry cleanables were totally smashed and wrinkled and I had to have them re-pressed and cleaned. Also, a brand new blouse had it's sleeve sticking out of the wardrobe box and was snagged, thus ruined. And the tag was still on it! Also, make sure that you get an accurate bid from them. They grossly under-bid our job and were over halfway through the packing procedure before they let us know they needed another truck. This made the total bid go up by at least 1/3 of the total. What were we going to do? Say, "never mind! unload the truck?" Not likely. The other thing is that one of their moving trucks left a huge oil stain on our brand new driveway. It wasn't the fault of the truck, but an operator error. Phone service was great, but when we talked to them about compensation for the driveway, the shirt and the suitcase, they said to file a claim. I hope they honor it, but when we talked with them about the suitcase, the first few phone calls, they remembered it, but by the 4th or 5th call, they denied ever having seen it, even though I was specific about that suitcase during packing because I had intended to use it for a business trip a couple of weeks after the move. I wish I would have moved it myself. I do have a picture of the suitcase in context of the other items that needed to be packed, but it then becomes a case of "he said she said." We shall see. Claim will be submitted. If they make it right, I will give them 5 stars.

I needed a 60" and 32" flatscreen mounted on walls in two rooms. Brian was very professional and affordable. He gave some suggestions on ideal locations for the mounting the TVs in the rooms and was very careful with the TVs. He even let me use one of his tools to help mount a light I was working on while he was working on the TVs. I highly recommend using his services if he is available!

They were very punctual and quick in packing up several large items (china hutch, curio cabinet, recliners, etc.) we had moved to Tracy. Had several items with glass and nothing was broken or compromised! I would definitely use them again! They also hauled off two items to the dumps. Very convenient, the two services they offer!

The guys were very nice and professional. I had to go back to work so I left them the key and a list of things to do. They did a grate job of packing all of our belongings in boxes and wrapping all the furniture. It took 14 hours for both locations. it was 100% quality work (VERY IMPRESSIVE). I would highly recommend them to everyone. Thank you team!

I've used a lot of different moving services before and Clutter is easily the best. The movers showed up at the very start of their arrival window, which prevented me from waiting around. They sent a group of 3 movers and each of them were courteous, professional, and hard working (no waiting around or wasting time). They brought all the equipment they needed, plus extra boxes, bubble wrap, and packing paper for fragile items, which was very convenient and helped prevent me from running back to the store to get more of these supplies. Even before the movers got there, the customer service over the phone was excellent and their use of text messaging updates gave me a lot of peace of mind. Their "down to the minute" pro-rated billing felt very fair. I'll only be using and recommending Clutter for moving after this experience.

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.
