Carlos & his team were outstanding. They showed up early, were very hard working and did a great job moving our 1800 square foot home. We had a hard couch that wouldn't fit through a door and without any hesitation they were able to lift this using a pulley system up through the upstairs balcony. I will use two friends movers again when I move for sure! Great guys.

This is a review of my first experience with this company that took place a few months ago (09/06/2016). I was scheduled on a Wednesday at 10AM. Before any moving had been done I was already very pleased with the way they handled their business. Even though I contacted them last minute and needed their services ASAP they were extremely accommodating and found a date/time that worked best for me. My two movers, Sergey and Bogdan, gave me a heads up phone call to let me know they were on the way. They arrived right on time about 15 minutes later. I needed to move out all my belongings in my bedroom and a few pieces of furniture (bedset: queen mattress, bedframe, nightstand, computer desk, dresser) out of the bedroom right next to mine. Both rooms were at the top floor of a 3-story townhouse, and the only way to move my belongings into the truck was through 4 sets of stairs (that were super small, narrow and difficult to work with). They started on the empty room with the furniture first because I actually wasn't even fully done packing my room yet. My boyfriend supervised and said that they carefully wrapped everything and used a lot of bubble wrap and shrink film to make sure everything was very protected. My room was a more complicated because I still had random items and clothing articles scattered around, but Sergey and Bogdan did not mind at all and packed literally EVERYTHING without a single question. I can't imagine how difficult it was for them to get my ridiculously furniture down those stairs (I already get tired just carrying my laundry from the garage). After everything was packed up in their truck, they headed to my new destination. They arrived around the same time I did so I could tell they didn't try to delay their drive time. Sergey and Bogdan immediately began unloading everything into my new apartment. Whenever they did ask me questions, it was about how or where I preferred certain items to go. I was so surprised when they told me they had finished because they worked so fast and quietly. They were very kind and gave me a discount on top of the first discount they had given me already. Overall, their staff were friendly, very professional and polite and they work exceedingly well. In the future I will ONLY use Silicon Valley Luxury Moving for all my moving needs!!

My wife Maureen and I are very pleased we have hired Tony, and have many more jobs ahead for him. He was on time, on budget, kept his commitments, and is a super great guy. He co-worker Rudy cranked out the work, never stood around, always working. They cleaned up a very large yard, built two redwood fences. Can’t wait to get going on the brick patio next week.

Main Movers was extremely professional and prompt from the move I contracted them from the Bay Area to Los Angeles. On-time and actually below the quote they gave us. They had a professional contract and were very efficient. I would highly recommend there service. They actually came out and inspected the house before moving us I had a very bad experience with a mover before these guys (A company called "A better Moving Solution") This other company was a complete FRAUD and there account was been taken down from Thumbtac. My mistake with a "A Better Moving Solution" was that I did not request a copy of there CA drivers license. If anyone ever tries to use a very small cut-rate organisation that does not use there own truck, make sure they send you a copy of there CA drivers license. If your looking at this Mr Deon Bell ... your a FRAUD who should be held criminally liable. He uses Rocket Lawyer for his on-line contract ... another mistake I mad was I did not do a reverse lookup of his IP address, it showed the contract was initiated in Modesto and not Sacramento like he claimed. Kudos to Thumbtrac for immediately deleting his account. He uses the name Deon Bell and his Burner phone number is 1-916-280-8074 ... He will try to go by another name so be careful. He also uses the following email address LAMDEONBELL@GMAIL.COM and one other phone number.

Justin mounted a large 65" TV for us in our family room. He was on time, reliable, knowledgeable, and very detailed oriented. He was able to complete the project with no issues. We will call Brian again for other projects that we have coming up. I recommend Brian if you want to hire an experienced, honest professional. He will be back to do more for us. His prices are very reasonable. We did paid Brian more than what he quoted us for his work, because it entailed extra things and he was very flexible with helping us out. Brian did an excellent job!!!

I recently moved into my new home that needed minor repairs. I heard of Art from a neighbor of mine who got his new light fixtures installed by him. He presented himself in a professional way with ideas and knowledge of what my house needed. With few drywall repairs and new paint to most bedrooms he was always on schedule. He also helped assemble my ikea furniture and mount my tvs in the bedrooms. He was always on time and did way more than he was asked. It seems there isn't a thing he can't do. He is a talented young man with a very fare prices. I would hire him again when I find more work around the house.

The event was an adult dance party with friends and local residents so going in we knew everyone would be pretty respectful and helpful. So there was the question of whether we should even hire Roddy given our tight budget. But we were so glad that we did because we found his service to be invaluable. He showed up to the party early and dressed professionally, he helped set up, during the party he cleaned, he refilled and restocked drinks, he even ran to Safeway twice for forks and ice. After the party, he cleaned and did whatever we asked. He was always polite and had a smile on his face the whole time. Roddy kept the party running smoothly and it was awesome having him there. Roddy handled any issues that came up which allowed me to hang with my friends and dance the night away. I would definitely use him again and recommend him to anyone considering using him.

      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.
