I hired KP Quality, Inc to move from New Jersey to Florida. I dealt with Paul Sztukowski the business owner and later his brother Kevin. Both are Great n honest people who work "like dogs" to please the customer. Paul gave me a price $1,000 below a competitor. They packed r belongings and transported it. They were timely, neat, and courteous. I asked if they would drop some things off at storage locker about a 1 1/2 from t Condo. They said "No Problem" n did not add on a charge or change attitude. They handled everything like Pros. They give u a time of pick up n delivery n are on time. They do not hand off or sub contract; they handle the whole job. Great people who do s great job. I highly recommend these Gentlemen for a job well done.

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.

They were absolutely incredible! They even drove 65 miles to get to us when somehow we were allowed to book them outside of their range because they didn't want to leave us without coverage. Never stopped moving the entire time they were there and stayed longer than originally scheduled to make sure we had the entire truck loaded. They took such great care and wrapped many of the large items with plastic wrap so they didn't get damaged on our long move. I don't know how the managed to fit everything in so perfectly, but nothing shifted at all during our move and not an inch of space was wasted. The best part? They are kind, trustworthy and so funny. They made a stressful move for us so stress free. You need these moving helpers!!

Darryl and his crew were absolutely incredible. They weren't just the best movers I've ever had, the whole move was some of the best customer service I've ever had. I had a bit of an odd move - we had to first move out of a 1 story walk-up in the East Village, then out of a storage unit about 15 blocks away, then all the way to the Upper West Side. But they were absolute pros. They showed up 15 mins early, which in NYC is crucial, because you never know what can go wrong on the day of your move. They were extremely polite and courteous as they assessed the amount, then went to work. They were extremely careful with everything, and even helped me take the AC out of the window, AND made sure to drain it of excess water before putting it on the truck. They did all the little and thoughtful touches perfectly. At the storage unit, they were able to make a tight fit to park it in the loading bay - we're talking by an inch or two, yet they pulled it off in one try. When they delivered everything to the new place, they were just as careful, and placed everything in a way so that we could easily access key areas and unpack in a more efficient way. And above all, they were all extremely nice, polite, courteous, and great to chat with, as well as a great value. I was being quoted higher prices for a truck and 3 movers, and even a truck and 2 movers. You absolutely will not go wrong picking this company. Thanks again to Darryl and the guys!

I’d hire this moving company again in the future. 2 young men showed up on time and finished the job one hour earlier than I expected. They did not take breaks, all they did was work until the job was done. I had done a lot of research and I found this to be the cheapest moving company around in Hartford. Thank you for a great experience Advantage Moving!

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!!!!!!!

Great service at a great price. My movers we’re professional and took great care of my furniture and items during the move. Managers were easy to work with and made sure to confirm my move date ahead of time. Both of the movers were nice and personable people which seems like a rarity and went a long way towards easing my anxiety about the moving process.

From the moment I called I was treated with respect and was given a fair and reasonable estimate that was pretty spot on.....my two movers were brothers who said they had been working with their dad since they were kids...they did an excellent job and were obviously very knowledgeable.... they actually hoisted a sofa through my second floor window... very impressive... they were really nice kids also. Met my expectations and more .. highly recommend this company

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 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.

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.
