Luiz and his partner showed up on time and carefully packed my 3rd floor, 2-bedroom apartment into a 16' moving truck. I drove the truck 400 miles and nothing was damaged during transport. They did an amazing packing job and were very careful with my things. I'd hire them again in a heartbeat.

Roy was FANTASTIC to work with. He was proactive and very professional. The building I was moving out of has an HOA that can be quite a pain to deal with regarding move paperwork, and Roy was extremely accommodating to provide insurance docs etc. On the day of the move, the moving crew was on time, fast but not too fast that there was any carelessness, and very careful by wrapping all my furniture etc. I would 100% recommend Top Shelf to my friends, and use them again in future moves.

Working with MovingWithLove moving company was an absolute pleasure. I had a serious problem I needed to solve, which required that I find a mover within a 24 hour period, and that the mover would work with me remotely (the move in San Diego while I was out of state). Not only did MWL respond to my SOS request through Thumbtack immediately, they then made room for me in their schedule the very next day, worked with me to find the most economical way to make our move, and then showed up spot-on-time and just got to work. I’ll always be grateful to this crew for the kindness and professionalism they exhibited through their flexibility and good will. I needed help, and MovingWithLove provided the personal and professional integrity I could trust.

Angel and Marvin did a fantastic job moving my mom. I had brought a few things that I decided not to keep and they had no problem taking them back down stairs and putting them in my truck to haul off. If anyone is researching a mover this is the place! On time and worked without a break to finish in a timely manner. Thank you Flash Movers!!

I had few items to deliver to my mom last night , but my move was scheduled for today. All the companies were giving me 3 hours minimum of labor for the job that will literally take 1.5-2 hours. Cube movers offered the same , but they used extra hour for packing my boxes and get my stuff ready for todays move. Hopefully I will get the same crew today ( it was Vlad and Sergio), they should move the rest to my new apartment today at 10 am. The most important thing- they are licensed and insured ( I didn't know it will be difficult to find one). Few companies that gave me quotes are not even licensed, I don't trust those businesses!

I am a repeat client and I just can't say enough good things about Michaelson Moving. All of my plans got completely messed up this past weekend and this company was absolutely as professional as it gets when responding to my problems and my needs. I will not hesitate to contact them again! Save yourself a lot of headaches and just call Michaelson Moving first!

I used Thumbtack to connect with SD Royal Movers. They gave me a flat quote for the 6 furniture items, no extra fees for mileage/fuel. While other companies were requiring a 2-3hr minimum. They were easy to work with from the beginning. On moving day I had Edber and Hector. They were efficient and careful with my items. They were friendly communicators and I appreciated when they would confirm where I liked the furniture placed. I will definitely use their services again.

I had a great experience with Moving Relocation Specialists. Rod was very responsive prior to the job. They also were quite flexible and understanding as I had to change the moving time last minute. They arrived on time, and were prepared with tools to dissemble my furniture (mine were already packed). They remained positive/fun and helpful as the move encountered a few obstacles. I did not feel that I got the deal of the century but I didn’t feel gypped either. The pricing was fair and they worked very hard. Hiring these guys made things much, much easier on me. I would absolutely recommend Moving Relocation Specialists.

Reliable Delivery did a great job moving my mom into an assisted living apartment. They wrapped everything, and were very efficient. It all went well, everything arrived in one piece, and they did it within the quoted time and price. It took some patience on their part, and they were very accommodating. Highly recommend them!

Very reliable moving service. Hired this company for a small move in San Diego and was very pleased with their service and courtesy. The guys moved my 2 bedroom for just a little less than 4 hours and they worked non stop. Wrapped all the furniture and delivered everything in perfect conditions. Will recommend to all who is looking for reliable and affordable local moving services.

Dave did a fantastic job moving my piano! I made a mistake, and had a big mixup on the times for pickup and drop off, and Dave was so kind and flexible to work with me. He was quick and very careful with the piano, and I couldn't have asked for more. The price can't be beat either!

My originally planned movers did not show up and Hector with Vazquez moving was able to put together a crew to move me into my home at the last minute. The crew was meticulous in protecting my belongings and were very careful not to damage my home moving out and moving in. Mosley is a great crew lead and you'll be lucky to have them manage your move. I would recommend them ... they are good people and did a great job!

This was an unexpected move that I didn't have much time to think about, and Move Central made it all happen with hardly any effort on my part. Daniel called me on a Sunday afternoon to explain the process, costs and planning, and was able to fit my move into the schedule within 3 days. The crew packed my entire house in one day and moved it all the next. Everyone was on time, efficient, neat and careful. The entire move went smoothly and Anthony and his crew were a pleasure to work with. Moving is never fun, but Move Central took all the pressure off. Thank you!

Was able to receive a quote and schedule the move very easily through Allen. Was told the movers would arrive between 10-11am on the day of the move and they arrived right on time. Both movers were friendly and professional and did a great job with handling several pieces of heavy and antique furniture. They both worked hard the entire time with only stopping for a quick lunch break, which they didn't count as our moving time. In the end the move took a little longer than our original quote, but it was well worth it to have their help as they were hard workers and took the time to even put furniture back together and move it when I requested. Would gladly hire them again and recommend for anyone looking to move soon!

We set a time 5pm. I got out early let him know last minute I was available he still made it at the new time 2pm. Was not expecting Miguel to patch the wall I had my gas line moved so he had to make a hole I was prepared to patch however he did it he left everything spotless great job. Clean and upfront about what the charge was. I am going to be doing 1 more project and I’m picking Miguel for sure.

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.
