The team was great and responsible. I was moving out of a building without a functional elevator and the guys did a great job getting everything on the trucks relatively fast. Very physical and demanding job but the guys always kept a great attitude and smiles. It make my home transition less stressful than expected. I highly recommend this team. I will hire them again if necessary.

we had a particularly challenging move with a difficult set up in the apartment building we were moving out of. We also had two stops to drop off some furniture on the way to our final destination. A1 was cooperative and helpful. One of our stops involved a third floor apartment with stairs and a very difficult doorway. The team spent a lot of time coaxing the sofa into the apartment. They went above and beyond. they were punctual and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend them and would use them again.

Smart Moving helped us move some large and heavy equipment from Alexandria to D.C. They did a great job for a very reasonable price. They showed up on time, brought enough staff and tools and were very careful when moving the equipment. Items arrived in great condition, no dents or scratches. I highly recommend Smart Moving for your moving needs.

I'm so glad I hired PROAH to help me with a moving. Bede and his guy were great, he answered my messages immediately whenever I contacted him, and the day of the moving they arrived at my place early. They did the whole move (1 bedroom apartment) very quick and diligently. I totally recommend their services and would use them again in the future if necessary.

After having a very stress free and accurate move, I decided to write this comment. I hired Skyride Moving to move my house a week ago. The movers arrived on time with the packing materials. Movers did not waste a minute. They immediately started packing and loading my furniture. They packed everything with great care, carefully moved my sofa, shelves, bed. In the end they completed the move well within the estimated timeline and stored everything perfectly at the new place. It was a spotless performance at a very good price. I would like to thank them for being so efficient, friendly and polite.

You kept those guys on track and that was not unnoticed. Greg I can't thank you enough for being there from beginning to end. You did exactly what you promised you would do....you got me moved no matter how long or difficult. You are a man of your word and that's important to me. To the rest of your team, thank you so much for working so hard to finish the job. You guys were awesome! I will refer Relocation Solutions to all my family and friends when in need of a moving company. I'm moving again in 18 months, there is no question about it, Relocation Solutions is the moving company I will be calling. I wish you all the best and will definitely be in touch soon.

This was one of my easiest moves to date, and I've moved all over about once every other year for 10 years! Unfortunately, I injured my knee and wasn't able to do much moving, but Moving With US was so quick, they moved me in less time than I had previously encountered (with me helping). The truck was huge and they had additional packing materials for my large glass desk and TV's. They are very responsive and will provide you with great service. I will be recommending them to all of the neighbors in my new community.

On a 1-10 scale with 10 a perfect score, Ground Force One Moving is an 11! Richard and his partner were professional, courteous, punctual, and performed flawlessly. They were hired to pick up and return a 350 lb. elliptical machine to a store. They protected the floor with blankets, carefully avoided hitting doorways, and placed it where the store manager requested. With confidence, I highly recommend this family owned and operated moving business for all your moving needs, small or large.

The team arrived promptly, immediately got to work moving each piece of furniture carefully, and always asking if the placement was exactly how I wanted it. Vlady and Petro had such a positive attitude and really wanted us to be pleased with the changes in our home and their service. They removed excess furniture which was no longer needed.

Adrian and his team mate Brad were excellent with their service. They moved my 1 bed room apartment to a town home in the space of 3 hours. Brad was able to hold a 8 foot sofa all by himself as both of them moved it through the gallery of our apartment on the 2nd floor. They were really fast with their moving and I would definitely recommend them to anyone. Very punctual and excellent with communication :)

I am very appreciative for the work bone by the moving team. All transaction went well. I had quite a few stuff to move and was worried that a moving company will charge a lot for the work. After screening reviews and comparing prices, decided to go with Newray moving. Staff was friendly and quickly sent me the quote. After agreeing to it, she scheduled my move. Guys arrived on time (by the way manager gave me a call day before the move to confirm the move and ask me if I need extra boxes and other staff). The movers worked diligently but in a good pace but it took them longer given I had couple large dressers that need to be accurately moved since it had fragile mirror door. They packed them well and were able to get it downstairs from second floor without a scratch. The total hours were slightly higher then estimated but given I saw how they work I was fine with it. I highly recommend this moving company, team is really devoted to their job.

Pick Up Movers handled our last move very professionally. They gave us a very reasonable quote which they stuck to in the end. The movers were great. They packed up all our belongings in no time and then loaded everything onto the truck. They were quite literally in and out of our house on the moving day. They delivered everything on time and I was glad to see that none of our things suffered any damages. The movers even helped us unpack and assemble the furniture. It really turned out to be the easiest move possible.

I had a last minute emergency at work and needed to move an item from one office building to the other as to not hold up a deal. I contacted all the well known companies (jk moving, collegehunks, etc.). Everyone was booked. I came on here and Ken was very responsive. Sent the addresses, he arrived within an hour of the original request. The item was transported quickly and free of damage. He was also extremely courteous and understanding. I could only choose 3 highlights, but I was satisfied across the board. I would certainly recommend his services and use him again in the future. Thank you Ken.

I had an excellent experience when it came to both the coordination and execution of my long distance move with M&M Moving and Hauling. They were the first company to provide me with a quote, and were able to complete the job for a very reasonable price. My father, who oversaw the pickup location side of the move, even commented on how efficient they were at loading everything. Even if you are moving into a walk-up with narrow stairwells, no need to fear— Marvin and his assistant dealt with it spectacularly. I wouldn’t hesitate to hire them again.

Our two helpers were great for moving our large items upstairs. They were quick, made a good team, and were very friendly. My only issue was that they weren’t as familiar with putting the furniture back together, and my husband had to do most of the work on that front. Would definitely hire again!

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 does it cost to move across the country?

The national average cost for hiring cross-country movers is $1,490-$2,220. A number of factors can affect the cost. One factor is the distance you want to move. For example, an East Coast-based moving 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. Another factor is how many belongings you have. Most cross-country movers charge by the cubic foot.

The type of move you want is another consideration in cost. You can have your belongings moved exclusively and delivered on a set day, or you can opt for a consolidated move, which is less expensive. In a consolidated move your belongings are stored and transported with the goods of other customers who are moving to your general vicinity during the same general time frame as you. Your belongings should arrive within a one- to two-week window, rather than on a set day. If you want the cross-country movers to pack your belongings for you, the cost will also increase.
