All three men were very professional, friendly, efficient, and strong, while also providing suggestions where to put items in a new home. I recommend MGB highly. Every step was confirmed, they confirmed the move several days before, and confirmed the arrival time. They arrived on time and did not rest until the whole job was done. (They are very considerate: even a spider gets their respect. Awesome!) Moving is not easy...they understand it. All three guys have a sense of humor. I was very happy with their help, which was very reasonably priced. As a matter of fact, they charged less than I had expected. They worked very hard, and some of our furniture was of very heavy wood and marble. Just great guys! Thank you!

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!

I was searching for a moving/delivery company that was licensed and insured for what seemed like forever. Most of these guys are either cheap and uninsured or insured and crazy expensive! I finally decided to try thumbtack and am extremely glad I did!! Tony and his mover were very helpful, came on time and got the job done with style and elegance! I highly recommend using him and his team for anything you need! :] 5 STARS!

Excellent customer service! We had a misunderstanding about a small stand-up piano that the movers wanted to charge me extra for, even though I had already discussed it with a customer service agent. I called Mike and he took care of everything so quick, I was extremely grateful. I have used movers before, and most were just OK, one was awwwwful, but THIS move was very nearly painless, for the first time EVER in my life. I gave the movers a very strict timeframe to get things done, since you pay by the hour, and they really tried to honor what I was asking. I mean, I was also watching them like a hawk the whole time, but they were really trying and working hard. I really appreciate their effort and the great customer service. A+ Only down side was that one piece of furniture did get damanged while in their truck because it fell over while they were stacking things - I watched it happen while they were loading everything up, but honestly this has happened to at least one piece of furniture every time I've moved, it's just part of moving. This is why I buy cheap IKEA furniture. For the price, this was a great company to use. I would recommend to friends.

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!

I was moving from Oxnard Ca to Las Vegas Nevada 4 bedroom + garage and backyard patio. I recieved quotes from various moving companies stating that my belongins would needed to be loaded into an 18 wheeler and they did not do next day deliver so i had to wait a week for my furniture. I was under the pressure of moving quick and I needed my items within a week(I run a business from home) delivered to my house out there in Vegas. I was told that i was asking for an unreasonable request from various company representatives. So in a last effort I went on Craigslist hoping to find someone to help me. Sure enough I did. I called 101 relocation services and spoke to Tony, he sent me a link to his thumbtack page, I had seen that they had strong reviews. With the exception of the 2 one star reviews, I decided to take a chance. I called Tony and he was quick to assess my situation. He was able to come the next day and load up a 28 foot truck no problem. Everything got wrapped and stacked properly into the trailer. I have moved variouse times and I can tell when there is quality work being done and these guys sure have. My items got delivered the next day around 10 am safely. The move was done so efficient and quickly that I tipped the guys very generously, They had saved me a couple thousand so the least i could do was return the favor. I was glad to have found 101 relocation services they live up to their name. I would definitely recommend these guys. Thank you Tony and his helpers.

Ron contacted me within minutes after I submitted my request on Thumbtack. I needed help moving a dresser to the upper level in my apartment. He was available the next morning. The price was very reasonable. He showed up at the time we agreed; I couldn't believe how smooth it all went. Definitely giving highest mark!

Brett was fantastic in completing our junk removal job. It turned out to be a more difficult job than expected, and it was a particularly hot day. Yet Brett completed the job for the original quoted price and stuck with it until finished. We strongly recommend him to anyone seeking a trustworthy, hardworking, and reliable resource for waste removal or hauling.

Mike and Shaw responded immediately to my thumbtack inquiry and were able to accommodate any last-minute scheduling. They were extremely professional and reasonably priced. Moving is always stressful, but if you have to do it and you live in the greater LA area, I highly recommend calling Make and Shaw.

My American Movers was not the first Moving Company that I hired. The first one was a company full of clowns and robbers. They don't have any thing good, all things that I can remember in them was their unkindness and rudeness over us while the moving is on progress. Thank God somebody recommended My American Movers. In fact, Gerson Sarmiento was their on the moving to check that the moving was going well and his men won't screw things. I never had hired this kind of company before. You can see their dedication and passion on the work. The professionalism was their, the even got humor when we are moving my things. The BEST MOVING COMPANY IN MY AREA!

I called around for movers to help me with a Sunday move. I decided to go with New Life Moving because they had affordable/fair pricing and easy booking. I also liked how they didn't have hidden fees and charge a ton of extras. They do have a 3 hour minimum but I think that's pretty standard if you call around. It ended up taking around 4 hours and 15 minutes for the entire job. When it came to moving day, the movers had called me when they were on their way to the house. We had the pleasure to work with Abel and Eugene. Both guys were professional and hard-working. I have a thing for efficiency and they were working at a nice pace and were extra careful with our furniture/personal items. They wrapped up the furniture to make sure they wouldn't get scuffed/damaged and also had some boxes for us to use for our clothes. The truck that they came with was very large and we probably didn't even fill half of it. They packed up our smaller boxed items into a larger box they had as well. We had an extra stop for a pickup before our final drop-off and they were very helpful during it since it was a bit more difficult with the maneuvering and messy space. Abel and Eugene had good attitudes the whole time and didn't take any breaks. They were kind and very easy to work with. We definitely would use them again in the future. Fair pricing, efficient, professional and easy!

I was very surprised on the quick response I received from Conrad's hauling and delivery service. With a last-minute move, he was able to arrange a team to move my things with the short notice and was also flexible with how I wanted to go about the move. The day prior to moving, Conrad made an appointment to view the propertyi was moving out of at no additional cost for a quick pre-inspection. At that time he also provided me additional boxes and packing supplies which I didn't think I needed at the time (and yes, I needed it). Considering I was not prepared for the moving company to move all of my things the day of, they were able to pack additional boxes for me. I appreciated their professionalism and quality of work, wrapping any large items that were not boxed to prevent any damage during the move. With a difficult situation at the new property, Conrad was able to come back at a later time to help me finish the moving process. This was greatly appreciated as I was not able to move some of my belongings by myself. I highly recommend this company and have kept Conrad's business cards handy for friends and/or any future moves.

I would highly recommend this company to anyone! I was left high and dry on a Friday afternoon at the end of the month by another moving company. I spoke to Felix that same day and he was able to set me up for the next morning! From the initial call and follow up to the actual movers-Marvin and Caesar-everything was handled efficiently and professionally. I also had to move approximately 100 miles away and everything was handled seamlessly. This company saved me and insured I was into my new home and ready to start my new job on time. Call them! You will be glad you did.

Great worker. Ben gets to the point and wastes no time. I’m happy with his work. The only think I had a problem with was that my appointment was at 9:30pm the day before and I didn’t move until the next morning. But he made up for it and I’m really thankful. Keep up the good work. Also FYI they charge extra for plastic for the mattress, which I wasn’t aware of or told by the girl that I made the appointment with. Also it isn’t an actual moving truck but I didn’t have a lot of stuff the attachment that he had to his truck worked. But other than that they are great and cheap.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
