I needed to move a huge, heavy glass-top desk from my apartment in SOMA to my office a few blocks away-- on foot. JP was great from the start. He arrived with a plan and got the job done in under 20 minutes! Every piece was handled with care, and the cost was much lower than quotes I got from big moving companies. I'd definitely book again.

Ricardo was very communicative before moving day and the movers were professional, kind, thorough and fast! They made moving day so much easier! I was only moving from one small apartment to another in the same town and it took 2 hours. Thank you to Ricardo and your awesome team!

This is my second time using this moving company. The movers are very nice and reliable. The company is also very responsive and accommodating with times. My second move (with same amount of belongings) took 2 hours longer than my first move with same amount of movers (3). They only have one of the movers assembling furniture which adds a lot of time to the clock. It seems as though they could do things a lot more efficiently to decrease time and $$ spent.

I had a very good experience. It was a small move. Most of the companies have minimum. MEAA movers did not charge a minimum. The prices were modest. Edgar and his crew were considerate, communicated in timely manner and did a really good job. Also i had made a mistake with the check. Edgar drove back so that i could correct it

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.

Recently used Smart Move SF to move from a house to a condo. The condo required the move to be completed by a specific time, which most other moving companies said they wouldn't be able to do. Smart Move SF accomplished the mission - they moved us in time and they did an outstanding job. We previously used several other moving companies and we're happy we tried a new company this time because Rocket Moving was the best by far. Their 'all-inclusive' pricing was truly all-inclusive. There were no surprises, no haggling, no hidden fees. They were professional, showed up on time and packaged everything quite well (ie nothing was damaged). Highly recommended!

I hired Harp and his friend to move a couch and dresser for me. They were very efficient and Harp was easy to reach, but they put a big scratch in the side of the dresser while moving it. Still, I would probably hire Harp again for a small moving job and just ask him to be a bit more careful.

An amazing experience. Never thought moving could be so easy. They took the job last minute, the day before, when my scheduled moving company cancelled. Very polite, very professional, very respectful. Highly recommend them. I will absolutely use them for future moves. Very satisfied

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

1. The rate is great. They charge a fair amount and they currently offer deals. 2. As a start up bussiness, they really work hard to earn their reputation. We were given a quote of about 3h working time and they finished the job under 3h30. During this time, they worked non stop, even skipped lunch. 3. They are professional. Some moving companies wouldn't bother wrap up all furnitures, but they took the time to take care of our belongings. I should also mention that they work incredible quiet. I'm sure our neighbors will appreciate it. When they enter the new apartment of ours, they even got a protective carpet ready for high traffic areas. After the work, they took out every piece of trash for us, leaving us a perfectly clean living space. 4. Extras. One thing I'm absolutely thankful for is the wardrobe boxes they provided. My husband and I ended up using four of them. May I add that the ideas of matching outfits assured in a very subtle way for us to be able to recognize our movers with ease. BTW guys, you both looked good in red. -------- My husband and I started moving smaller object and boxes by ourselves before professional movers came in. If you do have a lot of things like us, it may financially be more friendly to you. But other than that, I'm confident in concluding that this moving company definitely took the pressure off of our mind. Their work is nothing short than perfection.

Vyron and his team did an excellent job for my hallway bathroom and molding and doors for three other rooms. They did a pretty awesome job in tiling our bath room and fixing the drain problem considering our tile is quite big. They are very polite and easy to work with and they do show cares to our home and was able to fulfill all our requests with high quality job. Vyron also came back to finish a bunch of small stuff and brought me the leftover paint I needed and two duct covers they accidentally sprayed when painting the door. This is true customer service and will definitely use again or recommend to friends!

I am so happy that I saw the Thumbtack billboard next to the freeway. Golden Eagle Moving Company were so good. They were early, packed everything professionally. Everyone from Annie, who set the appointment, to the movers were more than accommodating. Everyone was very nice. And it all worked out as I was promised. If I ever have to move again I will call them first and recommend them to friends.

Nick and team arrived on time and were efficient in moving me from a third floor apartment to another third floor apartment. They wrapped all of items and took great care of my belongings - no dents or dings along the way! Above all they had a great attitude and were very professional. I would hire them again for my next move in a heartbeat.

Andrew helped me move some furniture around my apartment. One was a quite large entertainment center, which he moved by himself. He confirmed our appointment the day before, and showed up promptly that morning. He worked hard and completed my tasks quickly and perfectly. If I ever need help again, I would absolutely request Andrew.

She went far and beyond and organizing. We recently moved into a smaller home and she outdid herself and moved so many boxes opening them and putting them in their rightful places I didn’t even have to tell her where things go she just knew and that’s what’s amazing about her. She will go far beyond for you and truly is well worth the money. I can’t tell you enough how great she is and what a blessing it is to have her in my home. Thank you so much Elizabeth for all you’ve done for my family.

Jonathan and his colleague worked very hard to diligently complete my job. Moving and transporting 1000 bricks is no small feat. They overcame a challenging uneven surface over which to move the bricks. They would have benefited from better planning or tools, but they made it work and I'm happy.

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.
