I had a great experience with LA Muscle Movers. The movers came 15 mins before appointment and moved stuff quickly. My 1 bed room was moved in less than 2 hours. I would recommend these guys.

My fiance and I were a bit hesitant to book a moving service but we lived on the third floor of our apartment and when we saw the rates for Mike's Moving we decided to give it a try. We'd only pay a little more for movers than a Uhaul and we'd save time and energy! The movers were fantastic-very professional, broke everything down and handled everything with great care. They really worked hard especially moving our things down three flights of stairs! The movers were friendly, pleasant and got the job done very quick. They moved our 2 bedroom apartment 20-30 minutes away into a house and got the job done in less than 2.5 hours. We were downright amazed! I would hire these guys again in a heartbeat. My only concern was that while Mike's Moving was fantastic booking me just a few days in advance because we were moving a bit last minute, we didn't know what time to expect them as they said 'afternoon' and would not give me a better time frame. However, this may be because we booked only days in advance and the job before us may have been unclear. The movers were very nice to give us a call 45 minutes ahead of time-they were quite early! Mike had told us afternoon and the movers arrive minutes after 12:00-we were a bit rushed at the end! However, it is better to be early in my opinion, my only piece of advice is to try to give a better time frame but again this may have been due to our last minute move. Overall, a great bunch of guys, and as someone who has never hired movers before that was very nervous to do so, I can say with confidence I would not at all hesitate to call these movers again.

I never like saying anything bad about anyone and luckily there is nothing bad to say about Embrey's Moving Solutions! They showed up promptly to start with smiles on their faces and a lot of energy. Thirteen hours and 3 trips later they could still smile. They relocated the furniture exactly where we asked, placed the boxes where it was easy for us to stage the unpacking, and followed up the next day to ensure everything was satisfactory. They continually praised us for "being ahead of the game with packing" and ensuring everything was ok. Not only was I the prime person of importance that day, but I was left with the feeling that I still was even after the move was over. Its no wonder they are at the top of the list for local movers or that so many others have given raving reviews. They fill ALL of the squares, Bonded, insured, professional, more than capable, and caring and personable. I hope I never have to move again, but if I do I know who I will always recommend to friends and use.

I have never written a review before, however these guys - hands down - deserve one. From start to finish the experience was smooth and helped make my move as seamless as possible. The women who booked my move was very nice and efficient. They were also very flexible as far as scheduling. I went with a different apartment complex at the last minute and they gave me no hassle to make the appropriate changes. The day of the move I got a phone call about an hour before my scheduled appointment from a very pleasant gentlemen letting me know they were on there way and how far out they were. When they arrived they were very respectful and all around polite and genuinely nice guys. The movers were SOOO fast. They arrived at 12:45 and the truck was all packed and ready to go to the new place at 1:10. To give you an idea I did not have sofas and it was a 1 bedroom apartment move but I had a 7 large heavy boxes, dining room set, 3 breakfast bar stools, bed, frame, dresser, large mirror...a good amount of stuff that would of took my boyfriend and I a couple of hours to pack up in a truck. The same was true with unloading the truck super quick. I didn't even use the minimum 2 hours that I booked. ****Most importantly the price you can not beat, two men and a truck and other quotes I got from local movers were just not reasonable for me. THANK YOU DYNAMIC MOVING SOLUTIONS!

BAM, Cash and Alan were great! Handled all of my furniture and items with care and helped set up everything how I wanted it. The only small thing that is worth noting is that I had requested tv boxes and mattress covers when i set everything up (agreeing to pay the extra fees for them), but somehow this was not communicated to the movers so they didnt have them upon arrival. With this said, they still handled my items with care and they were fine without the boxes/covers. Just worth mentioning for those who are really needing/wanting these things....still worth 5 stars though aside from this minor set back. THANK YOU!

Destiny answered all my questions and made it really easy to schedule. The movers, Maurizio & Kwai, were friendly and showed the utmost care when moving a really tall, heavy 2-part piece of antique furniture in my house. It was a simple task, but they didn't take any risks which really reassured me. No bumps, nicks or even a scratch on the floor. Thanks, guys!

I was in need of a same day move. Even though they were completely booked. He still tried to get movers for me. Even called me and gave me tips and pointers to help me. I would definitely revisit if I'm in the need of movers again.

Dustin and All Around Movers did a fantastic job with a multiple stop move completed on July 28th, 2018. Unfortunately his truck broke down and one of his movers got sick, but that didn't stop him from meeting his commitments. He setup a Uhaul truck that I had to pick-up locally, but provided the labor. It ended up being about the same price, but he didn't falter and leave me hanging. That's the important thing. It may have been a few extra steps on my part, but he was extremely professional in making sure one way or another my stuff was getting to the new address safely, and on-time. Great job guys! Would absolutely use them again!

Bellhops were professional from the first phone call to the invoice. Booking was easy and efficient. The movers called to confirm and showed up on time (actually a few minutes early). They worked fast and safe and were a huge help. I would recommend them for local move as they were more than 50% cheaper than big moving company. Thanks Bellhops!

First off let me say Excellent movers! The movers arrived on time, they took extra care of my stuff. They were polite, and very professional. The manager Austin moved me before, it’s unfortunate he can’t do moves personally anymore. I didn’t have any problems with them. I would definitely recommend this company!

Sabrina & Marcus responded so quickly when our scheduled movers did not show up to help us unload our truck. They were a joy to work with and we are considering many other opportunities to work with them again.

Kevin and his team really did a great job with my move. I’ve moved 5x in the past five years, and Kevin by far did the best job and at an excellent price! I’m planning to hire him again for my family’s next move! They were also very careful with our stuff. Other movers were more expensive and they banged up furniture in previous moves. Kevin was professional and handled our items with care! Thanks

These folks care about doing a great job. They came with all the materials to make the move both quick (dollies, blankets, rubber bands -- ready to stack boxes, move things quickly). Meanwhile, they very carefully wrapped and took care of glass shelves, an old sewing machine, dishes, an oversized armoir. Perfect job. Ok, the only complaint was other neighbors in our building kept stopping the crew to ask them for their business cards!! Yes, they were that good. They took all the pain out of what might have been a challenging day. Thank you!

Very professional, they're respectful, honest and hands down the best movers I've hired. I'll definitely continue to do business with them. They've came late hours and moved heavy items that I thought was impossible without a scratch. They're nice guys and will not disappoint, thanks guys and wish you more and more success!!!

Id give more stars if I could. Movers were on time and knew what they were doing. Easy booking process too. I will use them again for my next move.

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.
