HASSLE FREE MOVERS is the best moving company that we have used and we have moved at least 5 times. Professional and clean cut. The price was well worth it also. We had 6 offices and 1 large file room. They provided boxes for us and eventually help pack 90 percent of the boxes. I just cant say enough good things about this company. Very knowledgeable about all aspects of the move. All 8 movers were respectfull in the highest manor. Courteous and allways smiling. We could not have moved our offices as smooth and without a hicup as HASSLE FREE MOVERS did. After about an hour it was like we knew these movers for ever. Moving is stressfull enough and they truely took all the stress away. We also tipped. 30 percent of the bill because of their impeccable service. An outstanding job and we will use and recommend them to everyone. Than you HASSLE FREE MOVERS.

All points Movers were on time, efficient, neat, and well organized. Their pricing was competitive with other local movers. They even moved a piano and took the time to have an expert on hand to tune the piano after it was moved. Bravo! I would hire them again.

Hired Jay and his team to help me pack and move boxes and furniture to my uhaul (was moving upstate). His business is legit and insured (important when hiring movers) and his team members were professional. This was a big job, and they knocked it out. Looking at hiring them again for a cleaning job. Highly recommend!

Great work. Fast and careful movers,even helped pack some things up I wasnt able to get to before they came. Efficiently and carefully disconnected and moved my brand new washer and dryer as well which i was very worried about and others were going to charge more for. Made moving at 9 months pregnant not as bad as it actually is.

Everything about this move went exceptionally well. The movers arrived on time and were highly efficient in executing move, while ensuring the greatest of care was taken with our possessions. These guys went above and beyond in helping make this move so easy. The movers noticed a crack in one of the legs of the headboard, and were so incredibly helpful in both stabilizing it (thanks Sean) and in moving it with such care. They were so good about assembling a bed for me that I had taken apart prior to the move (many movers won't do this). It was a pleasure working with this moving company. I interviewed twelve movers, and CT Moving Helpers were the 12th. I wish I had found them earlier as it would have saved a lot of time and effort on my part. Kudos to a job more than well done.

Fast, extremely efficient, and friendly yet professional movers, and Eric charged a very reasonable rate. They finished on time, honored their quote, and did it all with minimal damage, while also dropping off washer/dryer, a/c units and a bed at a storage unit, and taking a giant, heavy used fold-out couch off my hands. Will definitely be looking to use these guys again...

Ryan and his associate arrived on time and was extremely careful with the piano we needed moving. Unlike many movers, he was very calm despite the busy street, difficulty finding good parking, and heavy lifting. We were extremely pleased at how everything went. I highly recommend him. The price was very good too.

The movers were professional, hardworking and fast! They knew exactly how to move all our stuff without scuffing walls or breaking things. They took apart the stuff that needed to be. They loaded the truck professionally, with everything held down and the most weight in front. We moved from a colonial style house to a raised ranch with a ton of furniture and bags and boxes and beds and they did it all in 3 hours time. It was amazing, they really saved our butts that day, not to mention it was crazy hot and humid and they worked so hard right through only needing occasional water breaks. Would hire them Again in an instant! Thank you so much! Great great job!!!

Brian and his team are nothing short of a godsend - I cannot recommend them highly enough! My husband and I had a very large move, from West Hartford to northern Mass, and we required both packing AND unpacking services - and Brian made sure that we were being taken care of every step of the way. His guys packed our belongings with incredible care, and unpacked things beautifully. Nothing was broken, and my husband, cat, and I were able to live comfortably in our new home on the day OF the move - our kitchen was unpacked and ready, as were our closets and other necessities! Brian's team were courteous and professional, but still fun to be around and we thoroughly enjoyed working with them. We are already planning our next move when we buy a home next year, and you can bet that Brian will be our very first phone call!!! If you hire Phoenix Movers you will have an easy and efficient move!

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.
