We hesitated to work with a relatively smaller company compared to FlateRate, etc (we’ve had our bike stolen and bed frame broken with other small moving companies) but picked these guys because of the greats reviews and I am so happy that I did. These guys are AMAZING. David was very prompt in getting back to me when making an appointment, negotiating a price, getting COIs and the actual move. They arrived in the morning and started loading at a lightening speed. I watched them carefully wrapping furnitures, TVs, mirrors and even my exercise bike! And they made sure if I had any fragile items in my boxes then took extra care when stacking them. My roommate and I were moving from one 2 bedroom to two different studio units and they made sure to separate each belonging. When we arrived at the new place, unloading was even faster and I got all my stuff carefully placed at where I wanted them to be. I normally don’t write online reviews like this but I decide to do so mainly because of their quality service and, smiles - throughout the whole move, on the hottest day. I move every two years and had worked with numerous moving companies and fair price movers was by far the best of all. Thanks for making our move a breeze.

Dariusz and company were excellent moving men. They took careful care of our old and valuable and extremely heavy furniture. We had items being moved from the basement, 1st, 2nd, and 3rd floor with no complaints, unlike other moving companies. They were prompt and on time even though the forecast called for rain. Highly recommended, 5 stars. Thanks

Paul and Chris were fantastic. I needed to move within 24 hours and Paul gave me a fair price and was able to do it the next day at 7am! His team were in and out in under and hour and there were zero problems. The most important part of working with Paul and his team is honesty. He’s upfront and will not try to scam you like many moving companies do. If I move again I’ll use them.

My experience was good, it was just a little hasty and sloppy. There are still a few stains on my couch that need to be cleaned. It just seemed really rushed. The guy I had was very nice and he did a good job, but there was water on the floor and my hardwood floors were scratched from moving the couch. Just would have appreciated a little slower pace.

Ryan and his team were fantastic. They were hands down the best moving company I've ever used and I've moved a lot in the last 15 years. His crew was polite, friendly, professional and careful. Everyone was on time and worked hard for the entire 7-hour move. I highly recommend using Warner's Moving Services and will call them again if I need any help in the future.

Josh was at my house exactly on time. He was knowledgeable and sounds like he lives pool tables. Our table is perfect Josh was also the best price I received for moving the table from one house to another, along with changing the cloth top. I would definately recommend and he was a true pleasure to work with ( and he's a US veteran)

Move Quick is a moving company that brought professionalism back in style.They are very efficient movers that really go the extra mile. To be honest, they made moving a simple process. I felt somewhat like a rock star as I sat and sipped my Starbucks, while the team of movers loaded the truck in an organized military fashion that even the toughest drill sergeants would be impressed. They arrived promptly on time, and one of the gentlemen instructed me to sit on down and sip my tea while they work their magic (sits down happily). They wrapped my kitchen items, had boxes with rails to hang my clothes, and unpacked my new place in no time. This is not a moving company that plays games and moves slow to drive up the cost given that they work on a per hour basis. Move Quick was precise and efficient. I was so pleased with their work that I referred my mother for a local move and another friend to get a car moved. They too, were exceptionally pleased with the stellar degree of professionalism of move quick. Moving forward (pun intended, lol), this is the one and only moving company that I will ever use for all of my moving/packing needs.They really took ALL of the stress out of moving, especially being a complainer, it's a little harder, but they set up my living room, bedroom and did not leave until I was 100% happy with everything. I did not strain any back muscles trying to lift, pull, carry or tug anything, which is worth a celebratory glass of wine. Clinks glasses up in the air...cheers!! Seriously, this is a moving company that goes the extra in all areas.Thomas and his team were simply phenomenal, kind and respectful to my home.They are reliable, honest, trustworthy professionals that have truly mastered the art of efficient moving.Thanks a million MOVE QUICK INC!!!!!!!

I contacted Tom early on a Sunday morning to see if he would be available to move a piano the same day after another company cancelled on me last minute. Not only was he available the same day, he responded right away, and picked up and delivered the piano to my house within a few hours! He was courteous, professional, flexible and very friendly and I'm thrilled with the piano that is now in my home. It was an absolute pleasure to do business with Connecticut Piano Restoration.

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.
