We had a great experience with Mike and his helper Dave. I had been forgotten by another moving company and had to find someone last minute. Adelphia movers came, although the guys had been on a couple previous moves, the found time later on and delt with my awful stairs.

Wow! These guys were amazing! My original movers cancelled last minute (8pm on moving night) on me but when I got in contact with Lanre he had a three man crew at my place at 10pm that night!! The guys worked fast and were very friendly and professional. I couldn't have been more pleased with the service. The most incredible thing was I had been searching everywhere that day for money that I could not find. The guys showed up to the unloading location with the money I had lost. It's hard to find such honest people! Thank you so much Lanre you are a hero!!!

Those guys were great! The movers I had set up called and cancelled the day before I had to be out of my apartment. I called these guys and they were there the next day! The movers were super laid back and pretty funny. I've never actually had fun moving before! Every thing went smoothly and it was enjoyable to boot. I'd hire them again any day.

Excellent communication. Very professional and friendly staff who made the move in Philadelphia easy. I would highly recommend ( I am hard to impress). After a long day.....the movers asked, "before we leave, is there any piece of furniture we could reposition for you." Very pleased with the whole experience and would hire again.

Excellent movers. Tiamokkee and his team were great. Fast, super careful with my belongings, friendly, and the price was more than fair. They went above and beyond - example, had a really heavy bookcase that didn't fit through my door - they took time to explain why and show me the measurements - then took the bookcase to my friends house for storage. I don't know many companies that would have done the same. I cannot thank them enough for making a stressful day so much less so!

Jide was professional and knowledgeable during the initial walk through of my current home. He provided a flat rate quote and assured me that all my belongings would be moved safely. He and his team arrived promptly and worked tirelessly for 8 hours, with a lunch break on premises. They provided materials for wrapping furniture to prevent any damage. Their attitude was positive and they were all respectful, of my furniture and of my friends and family who were helping me gather last minute items. I highly recommend Moving Hands to anyone, whether a small job, or an entire 3 story home like mine.

Ryan and his team took incredibly care in moving and setting up my antique nine foot pool table. It needed a fair amount of work and Man Cave Movers took the time to make sure the table was sturdy and functional and still retained its antique character. They spent several more hours working on the table than originally estimated and stuck to the originally quoted price for the job. I really can’t say enough about the quality and care they put into the job and the friendly, professional way they treated me. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone!

I called On-Demand Movers the day before I had to move (not my choice). Lanre had his men there the next day and I had no complaints or problems with them. My original mover, Amish, backed out at the last minute leaving me in a bind. On-Demand was local so I gave them a call. Luckily they could do it, last minute. They moved me to a storage unit & I will definitely call them again when my home is ready, hopefully not at the last minute again. Thanks Lanre and On-Demand.

Michael Todd personifies the meaning of a pro ~ he was timely, knowledgeable, and most importantly patient. I was a few minutes late getting home and I was pleasantly surprised to meet a nice smile instead of a display of annoyance. My bench was assembled perfectly and fast. I will definitely call on this pro, Michael Todd again.

I was hesitant at first because I could not find Yelp reviews or much information on this company. After my move, I will no longer use any other movers. Their price was $200 lower than any other competitor and their attention to detail and care of my belongings was far superior than any other mover I have used in the past. I had a 9 foot credenza that kept me up for nights before my move because I wasn't sure if these guys were going to be able to move it out. They not only got it in record time, but they also took the time to wrap it and plan out their approach. I cannot say enough great things about this company. You will not regret hiring these guys.

Carl was a lifesaver! He not only single-handedly moved a large, heavy piece of fitness equipment for me (he’s very strong!), but he also kindly agreed to move a large number of unexpected additional items at the last minute. He is 100% professional, responsive to emails, kind, calm and a good person who genuinely enjoys helping people. I can’t recommend him highly enough!

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.
