I was very leery when trying to find a mover due to previous experiences with other moving companies. I called and spoke with the owner (Dave) and after a few minutes of conversation, I was sold. It is important to note that I hired these guys at the last minute and fortunately for me, they were able to accommodate my move on the day I wanted it. They had some difficulty the morning of the move, but called me before the scheduled time (8AM) to let me know they would be a few minutes late. Great communication. When these guys arrived, they were All Business. They walked through the house to plan the order of loading and immediately after began loading the truck. They took two 10 minute breaks and we fed them lunch. It was hard to get them to stop long enough to eat. Upon arrival to our new home which was just a few minutes travel time from our previous home, they walked the new house with me. Once I explained which room was which, all I had to do was tell them what room and they put everything in the proper place. They disassembled furniture at the old house and reassembled everything at the new house. They did all of this in record time for a very fair price (as quoted) and in a professional manner. Thanks for hiring competent help Dave. Nick and his crew were excellent. I highly recommend Fast Moves!!!

Good job of the movers! D.J. is so awesome- professional and reliable. Four stars because it is pricy compared with other moving companies, and the movers were more than one hour late due to some reason...

Embrey's Moving Solutions went above and beyond my expectations and then some! I seriously could not have picked a better moving company. They were available on my exact date and start time, when other moving companies refused to start as early as I wanted to. All of the movers were courteous, efficient, careful and very professional. I also could not believe how quickly they were able to get the job done. The last time I moved and hired movers with my exact same belongings it took around 6 hours. These guys got it done in a little over 4! I was impressed! Thank you so much for your hard work! I highly recommend this company.

First, let me just say I never take the time to do reviews, but I was so impressed with the work quality, professionalism and punctuality I just had to share my experience. My husband and I have used an array of moving companies with decent experience, but Dynamic Moving Solutions exceedingly met up to any moving company I’ve ever hired! They first did a courtesy call a hour before the scheduled move (this alone was great because it allowed my husband and I to get last minute organization before the move). The crew (Tyrell, Duke and Jerry) was professional, friendly and punctual! They moved a 3/2 home in 45 minutes. They wrapped everything to secure the furniture to avoid any damages that could occur. They maneuvered all the heavy furniture without a single scratch or dent in walls. Once they arrived to my new home (4/2) they unwrapped each piece of furniture and placed each piece in its desired location of my choice. They were so patient with me ( throughout my move I had to tend to my 3 children) they were friendly to my kids and even started small talk with my children. My husband even enjoyed them! He actually left the home & went out to purchase them gatorades! They were done with the entire move in 2 hours! These 3 men were so energetic, and professional I’ll recommend this company to everyone! I’m so impressed with this company prices, staff and services, I’ll ALWAYS DO MY MOVE WITH THEM!

C&J took on my lawn when many other companies wanted to charge top dollar or even didn’t respond to my requests for their business. I have a rather large property and my previous landscaper moved out of the area, so the grass was rather tall and things were out of hand. C&J not only got it under control, but have helped me with other lawn and yard projects. I would certainly recommend them to my friends and family.

I hired Mr Sasso's company to get some much needed help building some complex IKEA furniture on a Sunday after I injured my wrist moving the day before. While he was already booked for the day, to my amazement, he split his crew and sent me Jesse and Raphael. Again, on a Sunday, from a same day call, he sent me help just 4 hours later - incredible service. While they spoke little English (which he let me know would be the case in advance; I can make do in Spanish) their work was extraordinary and well beyond the call of duty. They were incredibly careful and respectful of the home, spotted two defects I myself had missed (now exchanged) and brought all their own tools; even add on stuff like drywall anchors. I'd have those two back any day of the week.

Great experience! Eddie, Mike and Trevor were fabulous! They emptied my large storage unit quickly and took care to wrap up all furniture. At the new house they got everything in the right rooms, including attic storage. They were polite and professional throughout the whole process. I had been warned that moving companies would add extra charges to my final bill so I was very pleasantly surprised when it cost LESS than John’s original estimate. Would definitely recommend this moving company 👍

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!

Jeff and his crew did an exceptional job moving a heavy daybed into an upstairs home. They were very careful and paid a great deal of attention to the task at hand calculating how to best navigate small doorways and angles. I really appreciated that they removed their shoes in order not to damage newly finished wood floors. They were all very polite and I enjoyed meeting them. Thank you! We will call you again for sure!

I always thought moving companies are no good. Then I hired Pick Up Movers which completely changed my mind. I got a hint of their efficiency when I called them first. Their customer service was very helpful and prompt. Their quote was unbeatable. The best part of their service was the movers. They were so punctual and efficient. The movers were so fast at the packing and loading process. The delivery was made on time and everything was in perfect condition. All my prejudices about moving companies are gone.

As many folks have mentioned, moving is a ubiquitously hated part of life. But, in all honesty, Great Nation Moving makes it relatively painless. I have used many moving companies in my life but Great Nation and the moving team beat all the expectations. We moved to New England, and they did an awesome job. Came right on time, and did a quality job with unloading and setting up our belongings. We were packed and loaded in one day and delivered within 5 days without any scratches, dents, or missing items. They were on budget, nothing hidden, and the crew was fantastic and hard working. I Highly recommend Great Nation for a long distance 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.

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.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
