I had 1 bedroom apartment plus additional queen sized bed and furniture. Overall process was effortless. Brandon offered me with really competitive quote and it was just unbeatable. No hidden charges or anything over quoted price. I specified all the items on project and ended up adding few items after Brandon provided me with quote and yet it was unchanged. My experience was amazing. None of my friends believed movers cost and experience being so great. I would definitely hire safe moving and recommend my friends to use services. Josh and T were really hard working and friendly. Quick to load unload and assemble the furniture back. Great service.

Frank Washington came through in a big way. His people were polite and careful with all our belongings. They put these pads on our doorway so that the furniture & house weren't damaged. Frank supplied wardrobe boxes to use & return. His crew were truly what their name says. We had the house all packed up but it took only 3.5 hours to move us from West Sac to Roseville--a three bedroom house. AND, they were half the price than all the other movers I looked at. Great!

I think that they are priced fairly...The movers were not seasoned professionals, but were polite and made sure to ask questions. I would recommend them if you don't have lots of money and want someone who will be straight forward about cost. In researching movers I found that many companies have hourly rates and then hidden fuel fees, drive time fees, fees to use furniture protection...I appreciated that the price quoted included everything. Alysha was very nice and also listened to my needs and budget. They are a smaller scale company, but was very nice and straightforward.

Keavan was professional, showed-up at the time agreed to, was efficient in the removal of all the misc items to be hauled away (items were hauled away in approximately an hour). Because it is an estimate through Thumbtack, it is understandable that the actual cost may be more. Keavan was upfront about this, so there were no surprises, and was able to provide a more accurate amount once pictures were sent to him. Very satisfied, would hire him again.

Ralph and Dion were very careful with all my things and careful to avoid hitting walls, etc. They provided a hand truck and offered to help by putting beds together and anything I needed. All of this and friendly and affordable, too!! Thanks guys!!

These guys were great. They were honest with estimate and even did last second change with no complaints! (They helped move my brother's furniture at same time since his moving company was horrible and left it). Very experienced and professional. The movers obviously knew their job and were friendly on top of that. It was 15 hour move. They never took a break or slowed down the whole time. I'm so lucky I picked the right company!

I did a lot of research on moving services and initially chose Sac Elite Movers because their rates were one of the best & they owned their own moving truck. What I appreciated most was that the owner (James) responded within minutes to every one of my inquiries. He quickly confirmed dates & times and...sent confirming text when he was enroute to my home. This company is dependable. Additionally, they used stretch plastic wrap & furniture pads to protect my furniture and were very careful when loading & unloading all items. NONE of my furniture was damaged or scratched in this move. I had an "all glass" antique china cabinet that I was particularly worried about. It was no problem for these guys as they clearly had experience in handling fragile pieces. Overall, I couldn't have asked for better service by courteous professionals. These guys were great & I'd highly recommend them to my family & friends. I've used them twice now and they will be my go-to movers in the future. You just can't beat the price or the service.

Kevin responded promptly to our request for help moving and assembling our home gym. I was impressed that he had looked up the gym equipment online, downloaded the assembly instructions, and reviewed them beforehand. Our belongings were kept neatly organized during the moving process. Movers were friendly and polite, and the rates were very reasonable. I can confidently recommend Proficient Moving.

We had to pick up some really heavy furniture (Bed-Set) from Modesto and get it to Tracy. Gary contacted me through Thumbstack and gave a quote which was agreeable given his legitimate track record. We met at the gate of the Seller exactly at 8:30 Gary came in with James 5 min prior to me reaching the venue. They went about carefully analyzing the furniture and then taking them apart wrapping them with shrink-wrap and blankets. It took around 3 hrs to get this done and another hr to reach my place but this is where the fun started, the furniture was not just heavy but also kind of cu-to-cut with the space available to take it upstairs. Gary made some really accurate calculations and using his expertise got everything up without any kind of damage to the wall nor the furniture. This process was another 2 hrs with installation. So in all from 8:30 by the time we got done it was almost 3:10. But the best part is Gary stuck to his original estimate and did not charge even a single penny more. Above all he and his team were cautious and friendly in their approach. So if anyone wants a legit heavy movers Gary is the best choice.

Pat was great! We requested his services last minute because of issues with the moving company we had booked, and others we had looked into. Despite high ratings on Yelp, these companies had questionable practices that manifested as the moving date got closer, and further research revealed low ratings on BBB and noteworthy complaints. Unlike these companies, Pat was very transparent and very responsive. It only took an hour or two after our initial phone call for him to provide us with the requested information and a draft of the contract, which helped with our initial reservations of him as an independent mover. He even included a detailed checklist of items to be transported, and easily provided references when we inquired about where else we could find more information about his services. The references spoke of him very highly and warmly! He hired help on both ends of the move-- both nice, hardworking guys who went straight to work. Pat made sure our furniture and miscellaneous items were packed well in the trailer. Things went smoothly, and we are so happy to have found him! We were comfortable with him throughout the whole process. His rate was also the lowest among all the movers we had checked out, which seems to reflect the honesty of his work.

    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.
