I used JT Removal (Justin) for a long distance move from San Francisco, CA to Reno, NV. Not only was Justin's price the most affordable and drastically less expensive then the "big box moving companies"...but he was wonderful to work with. Justin was extremely prompt and professional when contacting me about my move, and was happy to answer all my questions and addressed any concerns I had. On the day of the move, he arrived 30 minutes early (which was great), and he and his associate were quick and efficient in loading his truck. He definitely worked some magic making all of my items fit in one moving truck, as I had A LOT of things crammed into my one bedroom apartment. Justin drove straight to Reno after loading the truck (a 4 hour drive), and quickly unloaded all of my items. Overall, I was very impressed with Justin's service and would definitely use him again. He was very professional and super friendly (an added bonus!). I highly recommend him for long distance moves.

THANK YOU DAVE 1 AND 2, AND THANK YOU WILL, BRAD, RON AND SEAN! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING! We hired All Dixie to move us from a 3 Bedroom condo to a 4 Bedroom condo up the street. It wasn't a really complicated move except that we had 2 huge beds to disassemble and reassemble, and some pretty expensive decorative items items to be moved. Dave Sr., the father of the owner, came and gave us a quote for 2 days of work; first day packing and the second day moving. We were a little put off by the pricing of labor, charging a flat rate for the first 3 hours and hourly after that, but we went with it anyway. For the first day of packing there were two guys, Will and Brad, who boxed up everything, but left the dismantling and wrapping of furniture for the next day. Will was extremely conscientious about our most delicate items, and carefully packed them, checking with me for approval. They worked all through the day, with a short break around lunch, and they were both polite and very professional. The following day they came back with 2 more guys, Ron and Sean; a crew of 4 guys to pack the furniture and load the truck. The move to our new condo went very well, the beds reassembled, all the furniture unwrapped, the boxed items mostly unpacked; and while we did bump up against the time limit for deliveries at our new condo, the crew handled the conflict with professionalism and humor. I appreciated their hard work and the fact that only one item in the whole move was broken. Again, the company handled this with professionalism and kindness. And here is the next chapter: I had another move scheduled from CT to FL. That moving company gave me a serious run-around, and gave me extreme heartburn. I only had 15 items coming down, but this other company did not communicate with me as to when they would be deliver. When I finally heard from them, I was in CT, not FL! Their truck driver called me to say they wanted to deliver that evening. I did not know what to do as they also needed to be paid the balance of their job -- in cash!! I turned to All Dixie again. This time I dealt with Dave Jr. and he was fantastic! He sent a truck to meet these other movers and they off loaded my things from the CT truck to one of their trucks, AND they even paid the balance after I had provided the money via credit card!! Two of the movers that I knew, Will and Ron, have just delivered our things to our new condo. They called to check in and they really wanted to make sure I was happy. Again, they were professional, really easy to deal with, polite and on the ball. I absolutely trust All Dixie and their professional team of movers. It is obvious that from the owners to the crews, this company wants to please their customers, and they all sincerely enjoy seeing a job done right and done well. I thank you from the bottom my heart, All Dixie! YOU GUYS ARE AMAZING!!!

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
