The movers were very friendly and were very efficient. They moved our stuff much faster than I expected and the price was very reasonable. They had to carry boxes up three flight of stairs and didn't slow down their pace at all! I really liked how they let us borrow wardrobe boxes instead of making us pay for them. The manager was very attentive and called a few times during the move to make sure everything was going smoothly. The only criticism I had was that the movers did not speak a lot of English and this caused some communication problems. Several boxes wound up in the wrong part of the house because they were misread.

Zebna Movers price was in the middle and they seemed very professional. I also see their truck around town a lot, so I figured a lot of other people were using them too. The moving coordinator was very competent, and everything worked out the way he said it would. The pick-up and delivery crew were very good and friendly. My stuff went into a storage facility. I would recommend Zebna Movers.

I have never heard of NK Movers... but I thought this company was great! Although the two movers did not speak English, they were nice and quick. I was impressed with the amount of furniture they were able to get out at one time. We finished within the three hour time frame. I was also impressed with the cost to move. It was not as expensive as I was quoted by other movers. They were reasonable and did an awesome job! I would definitely recommend them.

I was beyond impressed with the professionalism and care of this team. As someone who never hired movers before, I was not sure what to expect. These movers were kind and prepared to get the job done, arriving a half hour early. They were able to get the whole job done in 2 hours exact and didn't waste any time. They took the time to wrap my furniture to ensure no damage or marks in the process. 10/10 would recommend them to any friend.

Great experience with Moving with us. These guys arrived on time, packed everything and got my belongings to my new place safely. I was very weary because I have expensive items and sentimental items. Instead of doing the move myself I decided to try a moving company and was recommended to these guys by a friend. And he was right, the movers were professional and very reliable. One of the movers told me he'd been doing this work for over 6 years, so these guys are experienced and top notch. Nothing was damaged, nothing stolen. I will definitely be using their services again!

I used Ground Force One to move our piano - My questions were answered almost immediately, it was the best price, the movers were on time, friendly, polite and efficient. The movers were concerned about tracking in wet feet and asked to have something to wipe their feet on. I would use them again, and highly recommend Ground Force One.

We thought our apartment was going to be an issue for the movers as we lived on the 4th floor and the building had no elevator. The movers from VKH Movers arrived on time and started packing. We weren't really concerned about that part though. When it came to carrying big furniture down 4 sets of stairs, we started to panic. But the movers seemed quite unmoved. They put their efforts together and handled the job quite efficiently. There was no delay anywhere and they managed to deliver on time as well. I don’t know how they do it but our move with them went perfectly.

Gary arrived at the peak of a terrible storm but that didn't stop him from getting loaded up. He was polite and professional throughout his whole time here. He responded promptly to my texts and updated me as he approached the drop off destination. After the drop off, he sent me pictures showing that the items in fact had been unloaded at designated destination. It was a pleasure working with Gary and I would recommend him to anyone needing a mover.

Pick Up Movers moved all my stuffs, one of the movers asked me to write a review for them if I was pleased with their services. The fact that I’m here pretty much proves that I was very pleased. These guys are amazing. I have hardly seen such hard workers before. All 3 movers were very creative with the packing process and very efficient at taking the pieces out of my house through a tricky front door. I wasn’t fully convinced of their efficiency till all my stuffs were delivered in perfect condition. I got lucky with this company and I’m happily writing a recommendation for them.

My two movers showed up and gave 100% the entire time they were there! Would definitely recommend this company to my friends. The only negative I have is that on Thumbtack and my responses the price states $89 and yet when I went to website is say $99. When I asked about it, I was told that the price they quoted was wrong and they still charged me the $99. They should either change the price on here or honor the price they advertised.

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.
