A-1 Professional Movers were a godsend. They were not only professional and thorough in their walk through but went above and beyond. The quote we received was excellent (Florida to Washington State). On moving day they were scheduled to show up at 8:00 am and they were there at 8:00 on the dot. The crew of 3 were very professional and courteous. They made sure to check before taking items to the truck in case it was something that we didn't want to take which we really appreciated. We had already packed our things but they will pack your things for you if you need that service. Because we were catching a flight I did not have time to thoroughly clean...but not to worry....A-1 can set this up as well!! They arranged for the final cleaning as well as power washing of our pool deck and cage. We are selling the house so this was very important. The price was great and the house is sparkling...and they also installed a new garbage disposal we had not been able to get installed before we left...without even being asked! How many companies would do that? We would recommend A-1 Professional movers 1000%!! They are professional, trustworthy and very fair with their pricing. Moving is stressful enough and with A-1 they take a lot of the stress off your shoulders! Thanks A-1!!

Marc was very prompt in responding to my request for a quote. His quote was very reasonable and a single rate rather than hourly. He and his partner worked very hard & did not rush to get the job done. They were very careful with placement of large & fragile items. Overall, very affable, able, and available! I would recommend to anyone looking for honest, hard-working movers in the Gainesville and surrounding areas.

I gave 3 stars based on being quoted one price and charged another. The movers themselves Akeem and Nile were GREAT!! Before I scheduled I asked here on Thumbtack were there any other fees like truck fee, gas fee, travel fee and was told, "NO, it is $85 per hour with a 3hr minimum." So I had the exact amount in cash to pay plus tip. Well after they finish the job I see there was a travel fee and taxes added. I've used other companies and the price quoted included all of those fees upfront. I was very happy with the job but would not hire them again based on business practice. When a price is quoted and the customer asks are there any other fees just be honest. The movers were great though!

Our move with CheckMate movers was a good one. Ryan was very professional. We had furniture moved from one house to another about 2 blocks away. Then had furniture from new house moved to old home. There were a couple of small hiccups during the move but Ryan was very understanding and worked with us on a solution. I would recommend the company to others without a doubt.

    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.

    Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
