We were extremely pleased with the help of our movers. We had a 16 foot truck full with two bedrooms and even 2 flights of stairs and it was done within an hour and a half. We couldn't be happier with the value and the gentlemen that helped our first day of moving in. Will use them again!!

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.

Can't say enough about 2nd to None Movers! Norina replied to my email the same day and was able to set something up on short notice. I was on a tight budget, as all people moving, and she worked with me to keep the price to a minimum. I told her exactly what I had and she quoted me an exceptional price... When Joe and Andre came to my home, there were a couple extra pieces that were not on my initial list-- they didn't blink twice and took the furniture without question. Very professional, gentle with my furniture, kind, quick, and experienced. I would recommend 2nd to None Movers to any of my family or friends in a heartbeat. If you are looking for no nonsense hard workers, call them! You will not be disappointed!

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!

John and his team are phenomenal. Very professional and a pleasure to work with. We had many flights of stairs and an extra stop in a storage unit and they handled everything above expectations. Everything was disassembled, wrapped, and reassembled efficiently and in a great condition. I'm very grateful to have chosen Bestprice Movers for our move! I would use them again and recommend them to anyone else.

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!

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!

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.
